Hi, I was looking for an old game that i used to play in windows 95 and 98...
It was a thief that had to steal the jewels without touching the little monsters.
Each level had different scenario, monsters and jewels. It is a very simple game, like those that you cant put it in the whole screen mode (maximize).
I think the name was jewelry or something like that, im not really sure.

Does anyone know something about it?

It's Jewel Thief, and funny that you mentioned it, since I actually remembered it for the first time in like 10 years yesterday. I must be psychic...

download here. Enjoy!

edit: And, before you ask, if you're having trouble with graphics, right click on the executable, go to properties -> compatability -> run in 256 colors.

Other game is called Chips Challenge... try using the "search" function for the forums. It really works wonders.

Maybe we should switch the size of that image to like... 300x100. lol
