Just "Knightmare" will do, VampireWombat! You win!

The reference is to Gottlieb, developer of this old game! I don't remember when I played the first time, but I was amazed by the diagonal ways!  8-0

Oh. I was just making a bad pun of Mandle's guess. I think either Mandle or KyriakosCH should get the credit.

I don't think I deserve it - I mean... "Knightmare" isn't that close to "Nightmare", in this context.

But if the others don't want it, I will come up with something in a couple of hours :)

^ No, but close :)

In fact Jet Set Willy has a very similar style, although it was clearly superior to this game.

Hey, I know that character! That's Roland!
I recognize him as the mascot of Roland Radio.  :-D
And according to that site he's from... either Roland in Space or Roland in Time.
Considering the screenshot, I'm going to guess that it's Roland in Time.

100% correct ^_^

And the music theme of Roland in Time, by Amsoft, seems to have been stolen from Dr. Who.

Not very surprising, when you consider the goon who owned failed computer Amstrad  :=

I was 8,5 years old when I got an Amstrad CPC6128 with green shades. One year later I got an Amiga, and it felt like I went from the stone age to modernity.

As it should. Those games were terrible...

Though at least Jet Set Willy had a larger world and some surreal elements (Roland was a lazy version of that).

Yep, Clock Tower Ghost Head to be exact. (Or Clock Tower 2 if you want the localized name.)
Your turn.  :-D

Since I only just posted one, I think someone else should do it.
