Trying to find the name of this cave puzzle game

I'm trying to find the name of the game I used to play in 1990 or something like that.

In the game you are this guy who runs around in a cave, sidescolling and it's something of a puzzlegame, trying to find your way to the exit. You could turn switches which opened doors, use elevators, etc. It came with a leveleditor as well. It's not something like emerald mines or boulderdash. If anyone happens to know the name, I'd be a happy camper

Thanks in advance!

I've moved this thread to the "Looking For A Game Name?" forum.

A Prehistoric Tale?

Ah, that's the second time I posted in the wrong forum I'll look better next time for that...

The prehistoric tale comes close to the game I mean, graphics wise, but it's a different game name I'm after... Contraption Zack isn't the game either, unfortunately. However, thanks to both for trying to help out here

Nope, unfortunately not.... As I mentioned, it came with a built in level editor, but the prehistoric Tale kinda resembles the graphics of the game I'm looking for... However, I do not know if it was shareware or not...

Nope, Rick ain't the d00d either

The graphics signature of Prehistoric Tale shown above in this thread comes close to the style of graphics used in the game I remember (but aaargh, not the title )

No, those ain't the games either. I think I'll just have to cherish the memory of that game, what's left of it that is

Maybe, one day, I stumble upon it and I'll let you all know! Thanks everyone for the help though.

Hm, how odd, now I notice I have two usernames on this board hehe

Anyway, I found the game, finally! It's Boing! ... How stupid of me I couldn't remember the classic boing ball within the game which plays a prominent role..... I guess I will now spend the entire evening reliving that great puzzler

Hmm, never played that one. I'm assuming you're talking about this game:

I'm going to try it tonight, I love cute puzzle games (I'm probably one of the very few people addicted to 'the Power').
