Game Review

Typhoon Thompson in Search for the Sea Child (other than a mouthful) is a remake of Airheart also by Dan Gorlin. It was developed by Dan Gorlin Productions and published by Brøderbund (Domark in Europe) in 1989 for Atari ST. One year later it was ported to Amiga.

The game uses a behind view with Typhoon Thompson always at the center of the screen. The story centers around our hero being tasked with finding the Sea Child by some hooded spirit people, who can be kind of jerky (as in mean). The sprites aren’t going to make Typhoon’s job easy and will use their vehicles to try to take him out. He must gun down the enemy flyers and capture the sprites within to trade for artifacts to free the Sea Child. The exchanging of the spirits for the item is done in a ransom for kidnapping kind of way. The game plays pretty fast as it’s not like the sprites just wait for you to nab them, they will attempt to get away while others are firing at you.

Typhoon Thompson puts a lot of humor into the game, especially in the animations. While not overly long, the game is pretty playable and easy to get the hang of.
