Trying to find game from childhood involving cyclops (Turbo Graphx 16)

Hey fellow Retro gamers!

So I've managed to track down pretty much all the games that I used to love in childhood but there's two that seem to elude me. And I've even been thinking about them for a few years now.

So if I describe them, can you help me find them?

FIRST game I cannot find: (Turbo Graphx 16)
We had a north american Turbo Graphx 16 (living in Canada). And at one point we rented this game which had a top-down view much like Bomberman, maze style, with bright pastel color graphics. And I think there was something to do with Cyclop enemies roaming the map, and our hero character may have been a furry or cute animal like a lama or prehistoric creature.
The main points I remember is Cyclops, and I'm pretty sure there was more than one, and the 2d top down view, a bit like the bomberman series.
Maybe it was an NES game, as I've been through most of the TG16 games without luck.


**Solved** SECOND game I cannot find: (NES)
I'm pretty sure this one was on the NES. I just remember something about a top down or orthographic view, piloting red speed boat on bright blue coloured water channels, and I think enemy serpents that came up out of the water and or chased the boat.
I think there were even jumps on the water so you could pilot the boat into jumps to get air and may be cross obstacles.

Would really appreciate any answers!

cheers,
Jordan

Theres a game called Chew Man Fu which is like a Bomberman style game. Not sure about the Cyclops creatures, but theres some definite cuteness going on.
Retro gaming since it was just called gaming!

The first game sounds like Midways Trog, as the ‘Trogs’ look like cyclops creatures. Your character is an orange baby Dinosaur and it turns into a T Rex when you eat a power up and you can kill the Cyclops. They have the arcade game in Arcade Club.

It was also on the NES never had a PC Engine release to my knowledge
