Danger Swamps 3.5 - anyone have this?

I have a game backed up, and I am having trouble finding it...

It is a (very) simple game - you are an animated stick figure, and a solid WALL chases you (from left to right) after a short period - the idea of the game is to make it to the right side of the iwndow, wherein another new room appears with you at the left side again - you need to jump and navigate obstacles before the wall catches up with you.

I thought the game was called Deadly Rooms of Death, but that is a completely different PC game.

It is a tiny application, with a small data file (rooms?)

It is very simple (no sound?) but HIGHLY ADDICTIVE!

Anyone???

bump - no luck as yet - let me have a more thorough search through my backups.

Black and White ? or Colour ?

The game concept is not new to me, I seem to remember playing something like this, either on a classic Mac (ie. pre-Mac II) or on my IIsi or IIci. Probably shareware, in which case I'll still have it (12,000 miles away).

Someone may identify it before I get home.

I believe the game data file is called DR Rooms or something - there is definitely the word rooms in there - and it is colour, as the obstacles and a green wall scrolls across from left to right.

I used to play it on a IIcx, or IIfx at work. I believe it also ran in B&W, but it was back in 91/92/93.

I will find it on my backup tonight, I have it all cataloged with Disk Wizard, so if I search for ROOM, I should get the disk straight away. More news tomorrow.

Hope you find it. I'm sure I was thinking of the original LodeRunner.

Nah, I found it last night - I believe it is called Danger Swamps 3.5, although my only backup is on a transparent CD, well, there is a huge oval which is perfectly clear - the CD won't even mount any more... I have found only a single reference with Google, but I have requested the file via the Mac User Group involved...
