Hello,

I vaguely remember playing this game in my friend's computer.

This is what I have:

    It was a 2D platform game.
    It was before 1998.
    It had directional platform which would make the character go in one direction only.
    I was playing it on a Windows 95 PC.
    The game could have a "Mr." or "Dr." in the beginning, but I have searched all games starting with that. So I am not very sure if this is correct.
    Some other games that were there in his computer during this time was - Lode Runner, Pinball, etc.


That's all I have. If this rings any bell, please let me know. I have been going crazy trying to figure this out in my head.

That "conveyer belt" mechanic was fairly common.

Here's a list of Windows platform games, sorted by year:

On Windows 95 it could also have been a dos game running inside windows, so here's that list, too:

If you find games that look similar to your memory, or game types that definitely don't look similar, let us know. And if you remember anything else, that'd be helpful.

Random guess, first "Dr" game that came to mind, jic:

Conveyer belt, yes. That sounds right.

Thank you for your reply and also your random guess. But it was not 1988 old for sure, judging by what I can remember about the graphics. It should be mid to late 90s. I am right now checking all the games from your Windows platform games from year 1999 to 1997. No luck so far. I'll check the dos game list after this.

Do you remember names of any conveyer belt games from 90s?

Thank you again for the response. Congratulatory
