Hey Midian...do remeber the name of an awesome C-64 platformer in which you played a Wizard? I think it was called Ultimate something or other...though I think that was just the name of an expanded ersion with more levels, which I had.
The jumpman series were all time greats. I also remember a game which gave me fits; you had to steal a treasure from Aztecs, or something along that line, going through stages that played completely differently. I recall the first stage had you running towards a pyramid avoid arrows and spears, the second stage you climbed up the pyramid avoiding obstacles, etc.
