What was the name of the game I played?

Few months ago I was perusing my whdload game collection and came across a game that I now I can't remember the name of?

Here are some things I remember about it.

I'm 95% sure it started with the letter A as I was scrolling from the top of the list downwards and didn't really get far down.

Game is a 2D platform you could only go left or right, I only played it for 2 minutes.

It reminded me of barbarian and gold of the aztecs and Thunderbirds and technocop (walking bit) a little.

I did not have any weapons and the characters (guy) walk seemed very lanky.

You get to the end of the screen and a new screen opens up. Similar to barbarian.

Graphics were a little cartoony with I'm Pretty sure a small hud at the bottom of the screen with life inventory boxes.


I thought I'd remember it but Unfortunately it has escaped my mind.

Anyone know?

No definitly not, the man was much bigger.

It was kind of a widescreen gameplay display and the man was half the size of the gameplay screen.

I am not 100% sure its a "A" Letter game

No none of them, I did think it was Astaroth as well before but it was not the game.

It wasn't a Shooter Style game like Flashback, it was more just like walking.

It looks and played very similar to Artura. I am sure it wasn't Artura

If you said you played it with WHDLoad it MUST be in HOL's A+WHD list as suggested by Codyjarret.

Definitely WHDLoad game. It may not be a game starting with letter A?

It's not at the the war. It was a game I've never heard of before I played it and wasnt something common like after the war.

With the amount of Whdload games that exist it will take me years to go through each one.

I will find this game one day.

It'd take you one night to go through a big folder of games, I know because I did this recently (I am up to letter D). Most folders don't have as much as A or S or other big folders, so in less than a month or, a month at most (dedicating one day per letter!) you would be able to find your game. Not a big deal.

Start playing :P

No none of these. I've played thousands of amiga games in the past and the one I'm trying to find out was one that I've never seen before in the past.

It wasn't a common game like the three above.

More things I remember that background gfx looked similar to black lamp and the character looker more like the character of Obliterator. And it wasn't a shooter like Obliterator.

Similar to this, it only had one character who was slightly bigger and wasnt a gun shooter game like this one.

I think it had the option to walk up and down in doorways as well, but im not 100% sure about that.
