Question Someone`s got to know

Im looking for this game I played when I was a little boy...

You were a wizard (or something), and your goal was to get a queen (or something) safe through a door by pushing bricks for her to walk on and so on... It was a "puzzle-game" and included very many levels...

Hope someone can help me

It wouldn't be Wizzy's Quest,(PD game)?
Tried to find it in HOL, no luck.
It had a covermount in The One August 1992 Disk B

It looks like its still there to d/l & try if its the one.

I remember this one too, and I played it none too long ago. But I can't remember its name... Could it have been an arcade port? I'm thinking I've been playing it in MAME recently.

he he

Wizzy's Quest was the first game I thought of too; I've made an .adf of the old The One coverdisk if you need it. In it you have a wizard, and his master who walks from left to right continuously. The wizard creates and destroys block to guide him to the exit...

Someone else mentioned MAME. The two games you may be thinking of are Solomon's Key...

@ Titler: Solomon's Key's indeed what I was thinking of. Did this appear on the Amiga?

Yup

I've just done a quick web search to confirm what I suspected, and Solomon's Key was indeed released for the Amiga (there are a few cheats mentioned for it); but I can't find an .adf of the game. Solomon's Lost Mines at BTTR is an Emerald Mines game, rather than a port of the arcade, sorry

Cheat websites are a bad source of information about games, as they copy each other's cheats. If a cheat is submitted for an Amiga game that doesn't exist, then soon it will appear on all the cheat sites, giving the impression that the game was released.

I've never seen any evidence that Solomon's Key was released on the Amiga...

I'd say Wizzy's quest would be the closest you get to Solomon's key on the Amiga. The screenshot is showing a level identical to the first level of Solomon's key.

Spherical does look a lot like Solomon's Key too.

I think Solomon's Key got an C64 version. It's not Amiga, but it's close

Well I played Solomon's key a lot on the C64 so I'd say it's got a C64 version

Because it wasn't. I held out forever in the belief that an Amiga version existed...narrowed down every lead and attempted to buy every version I saw advertised. In every case, the game was for the ST or C64 and got mixed in with the Amiga games. After intense research, I pronounce Solomon's Key never released for the Amiga. The next logical step is SPHERICAL, which looks and plays just like SQ.

And you are right, Cody...cheat sites are a terrible source for anything resembling correct info. Too often even the cheats themselves are wrong, but most of those sites all use the same source for their cheats, it seems.
