I loved that game!!
I remember some time ago I found a version on PSX called 'Diamonds and Gems', or at least something similar.

This looks like it is an updated version, but there doesn't seem to be anywhere to buy/download:

Really great game, hard to find. Best PC version I've seen. **cough** If you google hard enough ;-)

I've heard of it being available on mobile platforms, but I still prefer the original via emulation. :)

Yup, I played through the whole thing under Power64 last year, great fun! It's also much easier on a keyboard since you don't have joystick switches intermittently not connecting :P
