Flip-it & Magnose: Water Carriers From Mars is a competitive platformer game that was released for various European home computers in 1990. It features the titular Martians in their quest to recover pure water from Earth to take back to Mars, which is suffering a draught.
Water is recovered by completing minor adventure game tasks for NPCs in the area, such as feeding an egg to a snake for its rattle, which in turn can be given to a baby ape for a drop of water. These drops must be collected in special containers, which are also found somewhere on the level. Because the two protagonists are competitors and there are finite sources of pure water on each stage, the players have to out-race the other. Every stage is built around the limitations of the split-screen format, being mostly vertical in nature.
