Description

Kwirk is a puzzle-game, in which you have to help a tomato reach the exit of numerous levels. The path to the exit is blocked by boxes, holes and spinning doors. Boxes can be pushed aside or into holes to make them traversable and there are different types of spinning doors. In some levels, it is also possible (and necessary) to control several different characters to help the main character get to the exit. As the game progresses, levels get larger and more complicated.

Trivia

References to the game

Kwirk was part of a video game show called Video Power, which had an animated segment called The Power Team. Kwirk and several other Acclaim characters of the era took part in adventures with their leader, Johnny Arcade, against NARC's Mr. Big and his minions.

All of the characters were based off of NES titles, save for Kwirk, who was a Game Boy title.
