It's action/platform game, not adventure/rpg

Yeah me too.. Actually the main menu for the game reminds me a bit of Crossbow on the Atari 2600

Is this in 640x2xx? Everything looks so thin
Ouch, the image scaling on those screens hurt my eyes when zoomed in

I saw today passwords on HOL and tried this game again. I can not finish any level or even exit any screen. You can drink water and punch but with no effect. Weird thing is player object obscured by life counter:



Also there is hard disk installer on floppy disk.

Punica. That was a fruit drink in the 90's that eventually got pulled off the market because it contained something that could give you cancer as far as I can recall.

Seeing the screenshots, this game should get the same treatment.

It was/is damned tasty by the way, I really didn't like it when it disappeared

The problem was that some of their drinks had a sweetener, called Apartam in Germany.

Yeah but you have to wonder how much of the stink around that is true.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspartame_controversy

Because you also have to wonder how much of this article is true Widely varying opinions and articles about it, the only reason I avoid it is just to be on the safe side.

... but I have managed to yank this thread waaaay off-topic. Its a gift.

May I (again?) suggest sort of a partition in HOL, games that have a commercial publisher and those who don't?

Else as PD games are added they will drown out all the proper games easily.

Or you could suggest/implement some way to filter in/out PD+unknown, that way it works both ways.

Send a message via ICQ to lilalurl
There is a license filter.

For example: Commercial games:
http://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php?N_ref_license=1
PD/Freeware:
http://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php?N_ref_license=2

That should fulfill your wish.
