Eighties arcade game title?

I think I played it on one of those sitdown cocktail machines where it would invert the screen so your friend could play his turn while sitting opposite you (might be wrong). Anyway, you were a thief, stealing diamonds, going up and down lifts in a 2D side on view. I don't remember scrolling. It may have changed view when you went from the corridor into the various room = I may be mis-remembering some of this.

If you completed a level or two the phrase "You must be Lupin!" would appear. I think it was that - so what was the game called, Lupin?

I think maybe my game was called Lupin. :-/

Sounds very much like Bruce Lee to me...

No, it wasn't Bruce (respect!) Lee. The emphasis was on stealing, I don't think you could fight at all, in fact I suspect any contact was fatal. I think you were a French jewel thief, and the environment was similar to the inside of a hotel with corridors giving you access to lots of rooms.

Sorry this is vague, but it was a long time ago, and I don't think we came across the game more than 3 or 4 times.
