My memory might betray me but I remember a platform game on the MSX with very large sprites, somewhat resembling arab people, jumping around on a one screen display. I believe the object was to fill up some kind of funnels at the sides or something. Perhaps it was with oil which might make sense if the arabs were indeed arabs ;-)

I've tried to google all kinds of keywords I can think of but with no result. The only thing I can add is that the sprites were monochrome as I remember. All white.

And when I say "large sprites", I mean it. I would guess about 1/4 of the screen height or something.
Again, my memory might betray me... A LOT ;-)

Anyone care to name drop any titles that I can try to find any screen caps from?

Sound like Turmoil. Definitely a very fun game!

Too bad all versions seem to have an error in a later level - I even have this on a real cassette (compilation), and even tried to dump it, and it still has that error Evil !

(the level is incompleteable because of the error)

Heeey. Thanks. It was indeed Turmoil.
Amazing I was pretty accurate in my description despite it being probably 30 years ago since I saw it last.

Thanks again!
