Name of the game?

I´m now looking for an old game i played, it was a platformer. Using almost the same controls as barbarian (mouse control, no joystick). I don´t remember much of it more than it was great graphics (compared to barbarian) and more of clues. Pick up that and put it there. The name was short i think.. well, there cant be many platformers with mouse control... Does anyone recall a name for this game? Sorry i cant give a better description but this is all i remember.

There were different versions of Barbarian. I still would like to find the version of Barbarian controlled by mouse on the Amiga.

I found a game called Obliterator which might be what you're looking for. I didn't get to play it much but it looks a bit like the Barbarian I'm looking for, and that barbarian could in a vague way be called a platformer.

Does the control with the actions at the bottom at least look something like what you want? Or could you go more into detail on how to describe the controls?
That could help others looking for the game.

well..

..i know it´s hard finding a game with so little to go on. Well, the controlls are similar but the game is not the one. It was a fantasy like game, where you controlled a man (just like in barbarian) and walked around, picked up things (i remember picking up something like a stone or piece of meat that was used in some kind of wheel like thingy) used them and killed enemies.

The thing was me and my friends played this game ´til the disks got errors on them and no one remembered where we got it from and the disks where thrown away and then all of us forgot the name of the game... I think it had a short name, like 4 or 5 letters or something. This is really all i remember. But, as you say, sort-of-platformgame doesn´t usualy come with mousecontrol so i guess if everyone just says the games they remember playing that was similar to mousecontrolled barbarian... if i hear the name i´m sure i will remember it..

Oh yeah. I think I got that version already. Never got it started. Someone posted how to get it started, took a horrible amount of time. Never got around to trying to see if that's the version.

Until now I've encountered 3 games called Barbarian on the Amiga. 2 of them I've managed to start and it weren't those.

Hmm, maybe you are talking about 'Skrull' ?
I think it was mouse-controlled, too, but I could be wrong.
