Default Conan - Hall of Volta

I remember a game I played when I was really young, but now can't remember the name of it.

It's a side view game, where each screen is a level (i.e. sort of like Bubble Bobble in that way, even though it plays nothing like Bubble Bobble).

The first level, there are five floors on the left, and a bird (an owl?) on the upper right. The bird alternates between attacking the second and fourth floors, and attacking the third floor. So to beat this level, you have to jump up while the bird is still flying from its normal position to the floors. The fifth floor is the way out. There was a secret on the very right, where if you jump off the top into the tree on the right, there's an extra life (I think) in the tree.

The 6th (I think) level had a candle in the middle of the room. I remember that when you get to higher floors on the 6th level, the flame of the candle gets larger.

I suspect this game came out before 1986, because I moved in 1986 (and I think I played it before I moved), but not sure on that one.

I would guess for the PC (simply because I don't recall having any consoles at that age) but I could be wrong.

Is it by any chance Bomb Jack?



(Commodore 64 version on screenshot)

Can't say it's Prince of Persia-like, though, so it's probably not it.

Hmm...seems too "colorful" to be the game. It had a more serious feel.

I remember something about level 4 (or so) having waterfalls or something...just remember one of the secrets was in there.

Level 1 looked something like this:


+-----------------------+
|<-- to next level |
+-------------------+ |
| | |
+------- -------+ |
| B | |
+------- | |
| | |
+-------------------| |
| Start * |
+------------------------+

You start at the bottom left, and the bird would alternate between attacking (moving to) the second and fourth floors, or the third floor. At the lower right corner is a tree (the "*"), so after you jump up to the platforms, then over to the right (so that you're on the platform above the bird), you jump toward the right and land on the tree, thus collecting your extra life. Then you jump up and head left for the next level.

|...................|...|

I've been searching for about half an hour now, and what fits the criteria the most is... Sir Lancelot.



http://www.mobygames.com/game/sir-lancelot-

Could that be it? At least knowing what year it was from would make my search a whole lot of easier, anyway.

Hmm not it. I've looked through all the games on Abandonia up to 1988 but haven't seen it yet. Ahh well, guess I'll try Mobygames as well, except that it doesn't browse by screenshots.
