Description

Flood is a side-scrolling platformer in which the player takes control of Quiffy, a strange amphibious creature, on his quest to stop the flooding of his underground world. The gameplay is familiar (it is a platformer afterall), but there are some novel ideas, such as Quiffy's ability to cling to walls and ceilings.

Trivia

Development

Flood was originally developed to support four separate players, each with their own camera which could be toggled onto the main screen. The mechanism didn't function particularly well, however, and Flood was completely re-designed as a "cutesy platformer". By that time the development team had grown attached to the four-player design concept, and so it was revived in Bullfrog's later title, Syndicate.
