Searching for retro game name

Post by ro0ter » Wed Jul 31, 2019 9:40 am

Hello all,

This is my first post so I am hereby apologizing for any mistake I make. I have read the guidelines, I`ll try to be as short as possible, and hopefully my post won`t be deleted as it doesn`t referto the magazine itself.

The game I used to play a lot when I was a child was some sort of packman-like, just no ghotst. It was mainly a logic game in that you had to unblock the exit from this level in order to advance to the next one.
The trick was to divert lots of balls (which if falling in the round character`s head would kill it) so that they will fall in different directions and won`t block you or fall on top of your head.
The balls could not fall initially because some "sand" was holding them. the round character would "eat" the sand where he was passing OR you could hold SPACE bar and press left/right/up/down and eat 1 square of sand in those direction without moving (actually only looking)

The game seems to be an alternative to digger, yet its graphics were a lot better (PC game, not console).

I really appreciate any help I can get.

Thank you!
