Baby Jo the Super Hero is a cute side scrolling platform game by the french company Loriciel and published by Microworld. The goal of the game is to bring Jo - a baby in diapers - back home. He got lost in a park and must find his way home, through various locations such as small forests and dark caves. Time is limited and is symbolized by a milk bottle - fail to feed our baby and things can turn unpleasant. Thankfully, brand new bottles are dotted around every stage and will refill it up. Every time this comes up, the baby takes a short break and thank the player with a cute - yet loud - 'burp'. Life is also symbolized by a 'baby mood' indicator which changes from happiness to tears - in case of emergency, medicine packs available in every stages give our baby her smile back. Finally, and not the least, our baby hero has the ability to pick up rattles and use them to defeat all the various baddies. The game counts vast stages and a talking duck awaits for Jo in various stages and give him some advice. A password system also allows the player to save his progress at the end of every area.
