So, did any of you ever play a game where you controlled little yellow bipedal robot in a 2D place, kind of like a platform game, and if I remember correctly you had to collect batteries, and get through different kind of barriers and puzzles. If any of you can remember it's title please reply!

Thanks in advance!
OK, can you tell us aproximately how old this game is?

80s, early 90s, late 90s (that would already be relatively new)?
Was it DOS, Windows, or maybe some other machine - not PC?

I vaguely recall something similar. Did it include having to 'wrestle' with enemies to obtain stat upgrades?

I played with it in the second half of the 90s, on windows. It was on a demo Cd so it wasn't even the full version. It wasn't dos or anything it was purely windows and a pc game.

Old Mechwarrior is one I can think of...

But it rings a bell - part of the same sort of thing as Repton series, like Digger..? But not Digger - the other one. Arse, what was it's name..?
You had to go around a maze and collect batteries and stuff.

I've got Hacker 1 & 2 which are similar, but IIRC (which I prob. don't), the robot's not bright yellow.

But that *was* a long time ago...
BBC Micro old...

And the 90's are a bit hazy for me. Free love and Dance Music and being beaten around the head repeatedly.

I'm sure that I ran it on windows 98. It was like a platformer, kind of like a super mario game. It had really nice 2d graphics, and if featured a bipedal (it walked like a human) yellow (/golden) robot with light blue eyes. (Eyes like C3PO's in the Starwars movies).

All I can remember that there were collectible batteries, and some force field barriers. I've only played with the demo, cuz it was on a demo disc.

Dude - hate to tell you this but, what I thought it was, it isn't...

Can you remember what magazine the disc came with?

That'd be handy to search the net instead of my defunct brain.

But, in the meantime, you could play Lego Star Wars games - cos they sound just like what your describing.

Nope, the robot's head looked somewhat like this:
Also it looked like a kid robot by it's size. And all I can remeber about the disc is that it also contained an old Jack Orlando game demo.

Nope... the game I'm looking for was a platform game. I have not found anything about it yet. I'm pretty sure that it had to do something with batteries. I think that word was probably in the title too...

Thank you anyways!
