Nope, it's not Bubble Bobble, nor is it a clone or sequel thereof. :)

Rocks n Gems?

Though I think that might be a PS1 game, my memory is playing up again.

Mmm, never heard of Rocks 'n' Gems - sounds like a boulderdash clone? Not correct, though...

Silly Putty - that was a great game wasn't it? I'd forgotten all about it until you mentioned it just now. It's not the game the screenshot is from although the platform is the same - it is an Amiga title...

Yup—one of System 3's early '90s efforts, if I'm not mistaken.

Nope, it's not Bombjack Runner - but preownedgames.co.uk, you are correct! Fuzzball it is. Quite an enjoyable game too.

Congratulations, you win .... well, nothing - apart from the satisfaction of being right and the honour of being the next person to post an obscure screenshot for people to guess. :D

Just so you know I made up the game Bombjack Runner, you did say to say what I saw.
