Thanks Chef Boyardee,
Yeah, trapped on a spaceship, that sounds about right. Was it an amiga game you are thinking of? Those games you linked to are very close to the game I remember, but I remember the graphics very very minimal.
That spacewrecked game is the closest. I didn't know about those games.
On another note, is there any artist on this forum who has worked on this type of game? I was thinking about making one for my next game.
A game like this needs 2D tiles with different fake perspective versions of walls:http://individual.utoronto.ca/lackey/loose/dungeonschematic_template0.png
