I tried searching the site with Google ("site:.coinop.org foo") without much luck. Thanks for the hint though, I think I'll be skimming the site when I get bored at work.

I know this isn't very helpful but I honestly don't remember. I only remember bits and pieces, such as what happens when time runs out (the foot thing) and that particular treasure on the first level. As said before, I'm even uncertain if the player could choose his character. I think character(s) did have some sort of melee (or short range) attack though. As for the moves, I think there was nothing special. I doubt the character could do anything but move around, jump, and possibly use his attack. If there were more than one character to choose from, I'm fairly certain that one of their difference was their jump height. And no, I'm not talking about Doki Doki Panic aka Super Mario Bros 2. ;-)

Every time I try to remember something new about the game I start thinking of title screen of "Chuck Rock", character and treasures of "Wonder Boy", and map design of "Rick Dangerous" and "P.P. Hammer". None of those alone come close to the game I'm thinking. I know I would recognise the game the instant I would see it, but until then it's just bits and pieces.

I can't remember who developed the game, but I think Taito's style would match the game the best (out of Irem, Hudson and Taito). No guarantees on that, though. I didn't know BC Kid so I had to check it out. No, that's not it.

I really appreciate your interest in figuring out what this game is. If my answers sound like "bah, I already told you that" it's only because English isn't my mother tongue. Thanks again.
