That was fast, man. :D I really gotta try going deeper into my extremely obscure DOS games folder next time. ;)

My suspicion is that an accident, probably caused by a lightning storm and a mad professor, resulted in Amayirot's brain becoming inextricably linked to the databases behind MobyGames and LemonAmiga.

You give me far too much credit, I was just really into shareware games as a kid and a lot of that is still rattling around in this old brain of mine :=

Anyway, yeah, CrashPL got it ;)

Oh man, I know what you mean. I still have most of the shareware CDs from my childhood, and like to fire them up on my retro PC from time to time...

I threw out all of mine cause I was young and stupid ;_; I don't recognize this new screenie, tho. Kinda reminds me of the Clonk games, maybe?

I actually backed up some of my most used shareware CDs, when the portable hard drives became an affordable good (remember the times, when "portable" hard drives were bulky, heavy, and required an external AC adapter?) Given how ridiculously expensive these things are nowadays in Poland (like most of the popular retro stuff from the past), I made a wise choice. :) But I wish I backed up more of my collection, as some were lost or became scratched to the point of being completely unreadable...


Anyway, no, it's not Clonk. ;) A small hint - it's somewhat of a Bomberman clone, but played like a 2D platformer.

Whoops, hope it's not TOO obscure. ;)



2nd hint: it's an Italian game, fairly popular back in the day on various shareware compilation CDs.

It may have been popular in its day but I've still never seen it before now :X Fortunately your hint lead me in the right direction; it's Larax & Zaco, AKA Lezac. I'll let someone else take my turn.

Alone in the Dark?
Or at least a game made in the same engine.

Looks a bit like one of the Wonderboy games, but the art style isn't similar.
