Video Kid [Unreleased for the SNES]

Update: thanks to Tanukitsune we found out that this game was going to be a port of an Amiga/Atari ST game that was released. You can see a video from the Amiga version below!

Video Kid is a cancelled side-scrolling shoot ’em up that was in development by Kemco for the Super Nintendo / Super Famicom. The player would have take the role of a flying thing (in one screenshot it seems a robotic rat, in the other 2 it looks like.. something else) to shoot down enemies through various fantasy scenarios, like a magic forest, the wild west or a dark cemetery. Scans from EGM and Super Power magazine #12.

Thanks to Celine and RayVM for the contributions!

    Looks like a guy that wears different outfits.
    The blue one seems a mage robe while the green one looks like a cleaner uniform with a vacuum cleaner.

      It’s a not-Ghostbuster outfit, complete with a definitely-not-a-proton-pack. The character’s outfit changes in each world, to match its theme. Horror, in that case.

    This is very interesting. It is a great game on the Amiga, I was playing it in the past. It is sad that it was not out for SNES!
