Description

Typhoon Thompson in Search of the Sea Child is an enhanced remake of the Apple II game Airheart. It is an unusual game where you have to fly round an ocean and shoot at various unusual beasts.

The plot centers around a "Sea Child" who was stolen, and Typhoon Thompson is sent in to rescue it, with the guidance of a few strange, cowled ghost-types (who would occasionally be nasty to poor old TT).

While the original game was controllable with a joystick, this game is mouse controlled.

Trivia

Cancelled C64 version

The back of the US box also features a screenshot for a Commodore 64 version. Its developer Peter Ward states that it was completed, and he doesn't know why it was not released. The game's international publisher Domark appears not to have been aware of this, as they had their own C64 version in development - this also failed to reach the shelves.
