Switchblade II Amiga I have to watch out for that flying enemy. If it hits me, it pushes me off the elevator I'm standing on. If you fall to far in this game, you will get injured.

Trivia

Type 'Chrome' on the title screen to access a hidden game. Other than its main sprite the game strongly resembles Venus the Flytrap, and it was apparently a partly-developed sequel to the game which was never completed in its own right.
