Description from the packaging.

Search for the Sea Child.

Intergalactic Rescue Force

To: Commander, Intergalactic Rescue Force
From: Operations Desk
Subject: Rescue Effort Flight 396 (Codename: Seachild)

Flight 396 reported missing 2/13/24. Automatic biotracking signal indicates flight crashed on uninhabited planet in Omega sector, water world Type G. Only one apparent survivor: Infant child (no name on manifest).

Have lost three top rescue crews to date: All disappeared without trace. Weak signal indicates baby may still be alive. However, crash occurred over two months ago, and sensor is probably malfunctioning.

Urgently request permission to terminate rescue efforts.


Typhoon, your request has been granted. You poor devil.

"OK, Typhoon, but you better not blow it this time!"

You've been begging for another chance to prove yourself. And now (Gulp!) here it is.

Before you're done, you'll have to outwit swarms of mischievous sea sprites. Out-fight their bizarre technology. And outlast their tenacious love for the tiny child they have hidden away.

So summon up your courage (and check out your laser cannon) as you prepare to face the unknown. You'll never have a better chance to prove that- even though your nickname is "Typhoon,"- you're not just a big blowhard.

  • Smooth, quick animation that's realistic and exhilarating as you fly your jet-quick rescue craft above- and below- the sparkling tropical sea.
  • 3-D Effects to delight your spirit as they dazzle your eyes.
  • From Dan Gorlin- the creator of Choplifter! This time he's outdone himself.
  • Challenging gameplay: you must learn to outmaneuver seven different kinds of enemy weapons and tactics. Each new level offers new challenges, new weapons, and new skills to use.

The Deluxe Version of the Classic Action Game, Airheart.
