DOS or 95 platform game similar to Apple Panic or Diamond dash with diamonds in mostly red and black [Diamond Dash]

Post by schuhmann123 »

Dear all, I am looking for a DOS or 95 platform game similar to Apple Panic or Diamond dash with diamonds/crystals that had to be collected with the game colors in mostly red and black.

Platform:
- was running on Win 95 or NT 3.5

Game:
100% certain
- Platform game
- Jewels/crystals had to be collected
- game had a black background and mostly red foreground (platforms) very close to Diamond Dash (1993)
- there were ladders to move between platforms
- 2D graphics
- played the latest the last time before 2000


not too certain
- there might have been apples or something for life
- there where several types of enemies, might have been spiders
- there might have been bombs or switches to remove blocks
- might have played the game starting in 1998
- there might have been an extremely rudimentary cut-scene at the end (something like breaking through a block or catching a crystal... don't really know any more, might be a 'fake memory from 'Explomaen' which features this kind of scene).

Any help would be really appreaciated.

Thanks for the fast reply.

Just went through every game on the list. Looks really familiar to Lode Runner, yet was a different game.
By looking through Lode Runner I realized that there also was a level where the game name was printed (by the structures you climb on).

After playing diamond dash (as provided by your site) I am 95% positive that that is the game that I was looking for. Thank y'all for making it available.
