This has the bright neon colors of a game called Dynamite Heady which was on the sega game gear. This looks fascinating.

Thank you, it's actually a hand coded port of Doodlebug from Amiga/Atari ST circa 1992/93 which I did back in the day as Mutation Software and published by Core Design.

Great! Toyland was/is the first zone in Doodlebug and the game was a distant sequel to Bug Bash which I also wrote in 1990
