    Help Retro Game Name?

    Can anyone on DF help me?

    I am trying recapture my youth by trying to find a game I used to have on the Amstrad CPC464, It was a game where you controlled a little space man and collected keys to progress to the next levels it was played using the cursor keys. I have absolutely no more details except I used to load it with a cassette and it made a lot of squeaky noises with coloured bars.

    Sorry for the vague description I was very young at the time.

    sounds like most games on CPC464 mate, you sure you cant remember anything else?
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I can remember he had a a sort of rocket pack on, And the keys were different colours. It was definitely a Amstrad CPC 464 as it was my first computer.

    Nodes of Yesod is an Arcade Adventure seen from a side-scrolling perspective. Charlie can jump and, after finding it first, use a device called mole. After pressing up on on the joystick, Charlie stands still and the player gains control over the mole that can be used to attack enemies. However, not all enemies can be harmed by the mole. Another useful device is the burrowing chum that can be used to dig through certain walls. Before Charlie can reach the monolith, he has to explore the many caverns of the moon and find eight keys or alchiems. Every now and then a red spaceman will show up, and touching him will cause Charlie to loose one of his keys.
