Potential influences on Blitter Boy: Operation Monster Mall

Page references & Sources

  • "I initially thought of doing something Robotron-inspired. [...] At some point, I also had to abandon the idea of having Robotron's independent movement and shooting directional control. I don't think dual analog sticks on controllers were standard yet [...] I really can't remember exactly how I came up with the whole collect-the-babies thing, but I'm pretty sure I was influenced by Flicky. [...] I could well have taken some influence from Zombies Ate My Neighbors on the SNES, too. There’re babies to rescue in that. Great game." Net Yaroze Interviews: Chris Chadwick
