Description

Your name is Oscar. You have to run and jump through 7 Levels in Hollywood-style (Science Fiction, Western, Horror, Cartoons, Dino, Detective and Gameshow) to find Oscars (yes – the Academy Award!).

If you have enough Oscars you solve the level. You can choose the levels in every order you want. In the levels you must jump on platforms to discover the level.

You kill the enemies by jumping on them. Some of them lose a power up like invulnerable or a superjump. You can also find a JoJo to break down walls or using as ladder. Two creatures are no opponents. First the white rabbit. He gives you an extra continue. Second a red elephant. Touch him for using as save point in level.

Trivia

Launch title

Oscar was, together with Diggers, part of the launch bundle for the Amiga CD32.

Origins

Oscar has more than a little in common with Flair's earlier platformer hit of the previous year, Trolls, featuring suspiciously shared nuances down to the grappling-hook/yo-yo and the elephant save checkpoints. One might not go so far as to call it a re-skin, but certainly the two apples did not fall very far from the same tree.
