Fantasy platform game, smaller sprites

I remember you had a character who ran along the ground, climbed down ladders, had arrows shot at them. I seem to recall signposts as background sprites and maybe crosses and gravestones. Sprites were smaller and not large. Medieval fantasy with an undead enemy twist, again if my memory works.

Vague perhaps, but I'd love to find it again.

I quite like the graphics in this game too, it's too bad the gameplay is so clunky.

Spellbound looks too conventional and not as C64-ish as Warlock is, which is the look of the game I am remembering. The game I am remembering looks very much like the Warlock game, so much so even though I've never really played a C64 I went back and went through all the platformers on Lemon64 just in case.

At this stage, I think it is a lost cause. Thanks anyway everyone! You're all scholars and gentlemen.

At this stage I'm giving up. Either I imagined it, or more likely somehow played it on another platform.

Too modern and colourful, but looks interesting. Definitely going to go out and get this.

Too low resolution graphics :-) It looked pretty much identical to Warlock, but had better gameplay. Black background, night sky.
