Thumbs up



Well hello, I'm new... and I'm not even sure this is the right forum to post this question...

There's this game I used to play when I was like 4 years old... that must have been around 1993...
But the game looked so much older...

Ok it was a platform game, and the graphics were really simple, I remember that the background was black and the actual graphics were yellow... you were a little yellow dude, and I remember you had to push and drop rocks over some enemies (I remember there were owls, but there were others too...). Also, the game had a really catchy music...

That's all I remember... hopefully you can help me...

Well, thanks anyway...!
Bye!

It indeed is the right forum to post that question.

As to the game itself, sounds a bit like Lode Runner, but I'm pretty sure that's not it.

Yellow dude makes me think of Bruce Lee, but the rest doesn't add up. Dropping a rock over an enemy makes me think of Space Quest.

Black and yellow makes me think of a Spectrum game.

Pushing rocks and owl-like enemies brings "Boulder Dash" to my mind. :w00t:

Yellow is either the little guy or the soil and black is the area where you already dug.

The Line perhaps? It has got black background and yellow character walking on a yellow line trying to avoid and defeat enemies. And it also had nice musics, but I'm not sure about that rock-thing.
Check it out:
The Line
And it's sequel:
The Line Continues
E: Oh, damn! I just noticed that they are made in 2001 and 2003 so I bet they aren't the games you are looking for.
