Game Review

Flood is a side scrolling platformer created by Bullfrog originally for the Amiga and then ported to Atari ST. The game was published in 1990 by Electronic Arts. The main author of the game, lead game designer and developer, was Sean Cooper, more famous for being the lead programmer of Magic Carpet and the game designer of Dungeon Keeper 2.

The character of Flood is called 'Quiffy', and it's able to run, jump, cling to walls and swim. In many levels there are taps that can be opened, so that the water can flood and Quiffy can swim. The physics of the water was really advanced for the time and very realistic.

The mechanics of this platformer were quite experimental and the fun atmosphere was very original. Unfortunately the game was not a commercial success, not many people appreciated the game at the time. It was probably too different from the classic platformer that players of the 90's were expecting. It is however a small gem that many have rediscovered.

GamesNostalgia offers you the Amiga version, available in English, French, German and Italian.
