Lightbulb Runaway Mike (not demo)!

I've posted the same thread years before but I haven't taken an answer!

Is there a full game with this title and not the demo version?

I'm pretty sure that I've played the full game back then and not the demo version! But unfortunately, I erased it just to get empty space on a floppy in order to write something that is nowadays very common to all!

I'm pretty sure that I had the full version of the game! The intro screen that I had in my posession was not refering to a demo as it is shown in
http://hol.abime.net/5006

Does anyone know how many levels this demo version has?

Edit: Oh OK! It was a 3-level demo then! Now, I'm definetely sure that the full game version exists!!!
I'm really mad that I erased this game!

I vaguely remember this 3-level demo by Kingsoft.

Demo available from this link if anyone wants it..

http://www.planetemu.net/index.php?s...wrom&id=339440

As for the full game.... I've searched high and low and come to a dead end!

Sorry I can't be of any further help!!

The full version of the game isn't called "Runaway Mike" but "Mike the Magic Dragon" ( http://hol.abime.net/2478 ) which should be available at planetemu.net

That does not appear to be correct.

Runaway Mike can only be the (planned?) sequel of Mike The Magic Dragon!
If I'm wrong, blame me. But I had done quite a lot of research on that one, and now I'm over 95% sure things are like I wrote them in the HOL entry, because:

- Mike The Magic Dragon is from 1987.
- The Runaway Mike demo was _definitely_ not spread until around 1990.

If the theory of "Runaway Mike" being the demo/preview title of "Mike The Magic Dragon" WAS true indeed, "Runaway Mike" would have to be regarded as a preview/demo version which was released in 1986 and which did not see the light of day until 4 years later? Nah, that's very unlikely, not to say "utopia."

Both games feature the same character, and same gameplay.
By using plain straightforward logic, and checking the game files on disk, Runaway Mike can only have been the designated sequel of Mike The Magic Dragon, released 3 years ago. That's for sure.

Hey, Andreas! That proves my point, isn't it?
The only thing is to find the missing full game (if it exists...)
However, I'm pretty sure that it exists as I've already said!

It does prove your point without a doubt, but somewhat disprove Insanus' point.
Because of the latter guy's statement, I chose to clear things up a bit.
