Typhoon Thompson in Search for the Sea Child is a 1988 computer game created by Dan Gorlin. It was published by Brøderbund for the Atari ST and later for Amiga (1990). Typhoon Thompson is a remake of the Apple II game from Brøderbund called Airheart, also written by Gorlin.

History[edit]

Airheart is a particularly notable title for the Apple II as it is the best example of the rarely used 16-color "Double High Res" graphics mode available in the enhanced Apple IIe and Apple //c (and, later, Apple IIgs) in an arcade-style game. The backstory presented to the user as well as the in-game mechanics are almost identical between the two titles. While Typhoon Thompson is controlled with the mouse, Airheart is controlled with the analog joystick.

Reception[edit]

The game was ranked the 24th best game of all time by Amiga Power.[1]
