Hi all,

I thought i would test my luck and ask if anyone could possibly point me in the right direction, if such exists, to find a very old Amiga game that i miss.

When i was young i often played a game called Runner, it was very simple and pretty similar to Frogger in terms of game idea (but not a Frogger clone). You controlled a figure (presumably a boy) that had to cross several lanes of heavily trafficked road, both cars and lorries. When all lanes was crossed it had to be done again, over and over until one almost grew a brain tumor out of boredom.

I think the game was homemade and free, or perhaps a preview. It didn't feel complete anyway.

The best thing was the very good music, and that is also the main reason i would like to experience the game once again.

So question is, does anyone know what game I'm talking about?

I didn't find anything in AmiNet, so your best luck is to find it maybe on some old amiga magazines' coverdisks.

I think you have the wrong name for the game

Try looking for RUSH HOUR

Just checked and theres another game called rush hour which is  a clone of Traffic.

the Rush Hour thats on my amiga is like you described.
It is 1 or 2 players. Theres an old woman usually in the center that you can take over the road with you or put in front of a car. Theres a can to kick for bonus points.
After a short time a voice says "Rush Hour" and all the cars speed up

The game you remember is Claude's Runner.

It is a PD release and can be found on Assassins disk seven.

Glad I could help.

Many, many thanks to everyone for helping me out, and special thanks to MagnoBoots for finding the game.

This game is a little easy if you don't have Hardware Sprite collisions switched on :-)
