In Magic Pockets
, players control the cool Bitmap Kid who has deep pockets that can store virtually anything. Bitmap Kid's mission is to get back his toys that were stolen by some creatures.
The game is a side-scrolling shooter that plays out across four worlds inhabited by a variety of enemies. Players can cause more damage to these enemies by charging their shots before firing. The player's weapon also changes its shape and features according to the requirements of each world.
The Bitmap Kid has special athletic abilities. He can jump high by stepping on whirlwinds, and can even destroy all the creatures he hits after falling down from a high place. In addition, players can drive a bike, dive, and even fly through the use of special items.
The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
Trivia> In the Amiga version a sampled verison of Betty Boo's hit song Doing the Do played on the title screen.
The song is in the PC version also. (Yes, but it is only a simple snippet of digitized sound on the PC, whereas on the Amiga it is a full module. What is more interesting, however, is that on the PC, the developers transcribed the music to nearly every single sound device -- Sound Blaster (complete with digital drums), Adlib, Tandy, MT-32, even PC speaker -- and all the transcriptions are fairly competent. --Editor)
