Are you referring to Powerdown Laird?

Now you really surprise me there. I thought you had played nearly all the 8-bit games. I'm sure you have realised it is a puzzle game of sorts with a twist right at the end. Well, the last bit as shown in the video. You have several gates to get through with objects that constantly move around. There are laser beams to block and combination locks to figure out.

I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised as it was a budget title and there were a vast number of titles made for the XL. The cat's name is Argon, if memory serves. It is not the usual shoot-em-up and though there are a couple of different ways to get through the game, the end sequence is hardest and the most fun.

You can of course get it to run under an emulator perfectly. I'd like to read what you think of it when you get chance. Here is a brief of the game: http://www.mobygames.com/game/power-down

There are loads of games I haven't played! Especially on the A8 as I didn't really starting delving into the library seriously until recently when I got my XEGS. And that is all thanks to my Atari Max flash cartridge that allows me  to play any A8 games, be they tape, disk or cart, on real hardware. I have never liked emulators so this was perfect for me!

I see, thanks for the clarification. I only mentioned emulation as that is an easy way of playing Powerdown. I am not a big fan of emulators either but for many these days it is a viable option. That Maxflash looks good 8)

That does indeed look like a cool game for a remake.  It would certainly benefit from having more detailed and colorful graphics.  :)
