reverse frogger -- man falling down screen
I posted this back in 2013, but nobody got the answer. I'm trying again. I really hope someone can help me. I've been searching for more than a decade. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help me.
When did I play it?
I played it in the early 90s, when I was in first grade, but the game is probably from the 80s. The game is probably from the 80s but maybe the early 90s.
What computer and OS?
I don't know. I'm pretty sure it was a game for either DOS or Apple II. I remember that the game came on a large, black floppy disk.
What were the graphics like?
I remember it looking really primitive. Maybe Atari 2600 graphics. Blocky and not too many colors on screen.
I don't remember music. I think it had very primitive sound effects. Beeps and boops.
What was the gameplay?
It was like an upside down frogger game:
-the man hung from moving platforms that scrolled horizontally across the screen.
-you pressed the button to have him let go of the platforms. As he fell, he could grab onto other platforms lower down using the same button.
-there were enemies flying in the spaces between platforms that would kill you on contact.
-I think (but am not sure) that you had to get him to land in certain areas on the ground, just like Frogger had to jump into certain areas.
-so the man started at the top of the screen and fell down to the bottom of the screen, where he had to land safely in certain areas.
-I think the screen wrapped around too, so if you held onto a platform that went off screen left, you would reappear on screen right.
-there was a timer during gameplay too.
-I think the man had blue for pants and green for a shirt, but my memory could be "filling in the blanks" incorrectly. I don't remember any facial features. I think it was just a blocky guy.
Definitely a single screen game (like Bubble Bobble).
