    Default looking for game title (1989-1991)

    I am looking for a game i played on an arcade machine somewhere around 1989 -1991. It was a 2d jump and run game in which the main caracter (to my recollection) was a fury white round shaped creature. It had to run, swim and jump. It also could shoot spike things to open hidden gates and it could hit other creatures with it.
    The game was played on an arcade machine in a local pub, haven't a clue what type of machine.
    Anyone any idea what this game was?

    Thanks

    That's the first thing that came to my mind as well but it doesn't really match any of the criteria given.

    Strange how your recollection of something isn's quite the real deal. I thought it was a white animal, well it isn't. The balloons gave it away as being the game i played almost 25 years ago
    I must have played that game for hours on end. Now al i have to do is find it for a Neo Geo mvs cab (does it exist for this?).
    Thanks for the help

    Nevermind the criteria. It degrades over time.

    It's not a NeoGeo game as far as I know.
