[FOUND - Top Secret] Puzzle game/Bubble Bobble-ish style

Hello! I am new to this forum and i would like to ask if anyone could please help me find an old Amiga game that i have been searching for, a long time without any proper results.

The main-character of the game was a purple/dark blueish robot, who eventually should pick up items and avoid/kill enemies in a Bubble Bobble-style type of levels.

I don't remember much more, besides the fact that after you have died and used all your lives, you would be thrown in jail, and this was shown with a cutscene of the robot itself that was locked inside a cell with bars.

I really hope you could help me!

Also, please pardon my English. Thanks a lot!

Sorry, that's not the right one. I believe it was a single player game, and that it was set outdoors. Come to think about it, it was kind of similar to Rodland.

Thank you anyway!

Ironically, just a while after that last post, i Google'd for "Rodland clone" Amiga, or something like that, and a screenshot popped up.

The game i was searching for has the name "Top Secret", so i guess that this question is now obsolete.

Thanks to s2325 who got my mind in the right direction!

You probably stumbled upon amigapd's website:

Feel free to send him a PM if you want to think him for his cataloging effort:

I just tried Top Secret a bit. That elephant coming when you spent too much time in the level is far more scary than those whales in Bubble Bobble.


From my few tries, the aim of each level is to collect all the floppy disks rather than killing all enemies.

So that would make it rather a Bombjack clone than a Rod-land/Bubble Bobble clone.

Am I right? I was thinking of setting the HOL game entry to subcategory "Platform - Clear Screen" as with Rod-land but unless there is a change of gameplay after a while, I guess it should rather be Platform - Collector.
