Also he did no have an axe.

But DAM It is very similar to Battle Bound?

Maybe one of the many Time Runners games? http://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php?find=time%20runners

(There are 30, but the main character is always the same in each one)

No definitely not.

The main character walked slowly. Kind of step to step animation.

Time Runners has one of the slowest, step-to-step walking characters EVER. That's why I suggested it

I think you are talking about the game with huge sprites and very impressive graphics? It may be quite violent too.
The move-set is limited possibly because of the sprite size. It looks like an arcade game- I cannot remember its name. I think you can be a man or a woman.

Or targhan http://hol.abime.net/1315. I played another of this game type the other evening its name also escapes me.

Off topic but does anyone know how to actually walk / run "right" in Skrull

Edit: don't worry, being a muppet... Had Port 2 = Keyboard Layout B which meant nothing was working for movement except for icons on right / bottom of screen.

Edit #2: saying that; how do you run "right"? If you use the double-left arrow icon to run it's only in the left direction...

No to the games above. He wasn't carrying a weapon at the start of the game. Control method was move joystick left and right to move. It wasn't a click icon right to move.

The start of the game reminded me a little of walk and find objects I think. Like batman caped crusader. But gfx like Battle Bound?
