Wizard type platform game from childhood

Hi, I'm hoping someone can jog my memory of a game I played many years ago on my A500+ .

What details I recall are pretty sketchy, the main character was some type of wizard, and I think the first level was set in some fairytale scene, as I can remember something about Hansel and Gretel's House.

Also the trees had eyes and as you walked across the screen would follow you, and as the game progressed you jumped onto the clouds to access the next level.

I spent some time a few years ago searching the archives online and came up blank, any help appreciated so at least I know I'm not going senile and imagined it.

@S2325

It is not either of those titles, thanks for looking.

The main title screen I remember had great graphics, with
lots of vibrant colours.

The first level was set at night, a black background like used in the Adams Family.

Wish I could remember more.

No guys ain't any of those.

It is probably a rare title, gone to oblivion.

@s2325 @spirit

It's not them, have just looked through the HOL catalog, unless I've missed something, it doesn't appear to be on the list.

It had good graphics and game play, but was easily completed from what I remember.

I'm surprised this wasn't a more popular game, having played some Whdload games recently, there seems to have been some other horrendously bad games back then.
