    Hey everyone,

    I'm trying to track down this old Mac game. If you can remember the name, or can direct me to a good place to look for it, it would be appreciated.

    Basically, it was a 2D game where you flew around on a gryphon or something like that, with a lance. The bad guys would fly around as well and if you hit them when your lance was higher than theirs, you would kill them. Enemies got more and more difficult as you progressed through the levels.

    The background was the same for all of the levels I think...hieroglyphs and stone, with lava at the bottom. If you flew too close to the lava, a green hand would reach out and try to drag you into it.

    Had very distinct sound effects for when you killed the enemy, I recall.

    Is any of this sounding familiar?

    I checked and it is available on the ipod touch for free! Though the controls really sucks, making the game pretty bad... Too bad.
