It's a platformer made with AGD. Try yourself if you like it.
There are actually two different versions/releases of this game where you play a different protagonist, but that's the only difference:

Aye that's one of Jamie's charming little flourishes, Knight Tricks had a Black and a White version.

Two games from Poland, released on "speccy.pl party 2018.1", an event which happened on 2018-04-14

As you can see it's a puzzle. If I understand it correctly, you must build lines of 5 stones which makes them disappear. Random stones are constantly thrown on the board. You make a move by selecting a stone and pointing a destination field. A games checks if there is path from start field to destination field. The path doesn't need to be straight, it can have many turns but you cannot move on diagonals or jump over existing stones. I suppose it never ends, it's generally a thing how long can you survive.

I believe it belongs to "color lines" genre. Try typing into search field "color lines" to see some similar games. Maybe we should create such group in a database? ;)

No, it's not a Spectrum display after some crash, it's a game ;)
It's actually a Frogger clone made entirely on attributes. You see this frog and cars, right? We had here recently Snake made on attributes so maybe it's some kind of new fashion ;)

Love that 'minimalistic' Frogger! 😀

Great puzzle game, quite polished, managed 175 so far.

The only downside is that the 'lock on Gem' key response is a bit unreliable.

Now ^this^ is superb! Despite its simple appearance this plays better than almost every frogger in the archive, I like the debounced key control. Try as I might I just can't get the 4th Frog in yet :x

Oh, this is easy! I can avoid everything without stopping mov... oh!

Edit: is this some sort of minimalistic Maniac Mansion?
