Many of us have parents that are baby boomers, but do you know any babies named Boomer? Well, you do now, con sarn it.
In Baby Boomer, you control Boomer and crawl slowly through nine torturous levels to get back to his mom. There’s no official story, but it’s possible he was kidnapped by his hot-rod driving, coke-sniffing father, only to be accidentally set free by his dad’s freewheeling hippie girlfriend. Maybe.
As a silent sniper guardian, use your Zapper to eliminate any and all creatures that want to kill/eat poor Boomer. Snakes, skeletons, bats, demons, fish (dreaded fish!) all have it out for the child. They appear quickly, so you better have a steady trigger finger and swift reaction time. One hit and Boomer’s… dead? Nah, he just cries a lot, but you will have to start at the beginning of the level and that’s almost as bad as being named Boomer. Keep on the lookout for bottles of milk to shoot. If Boomer’s milk meter goes down, additional crying will ensue. Twelve gold nuggets can be collected for an extra Boomer, for what that’s worth.
It will take long nights of staying up with Baby Boomer for you to beat it. Unlike your own child, Boomer and his game aren’t worth the dark, saggy eyes.
