A platform game from 1991 [Solved]

Hi,
I'm trying to recall the name of a platform game from about 1991 that I used to play whilst bunking off from college.
I only recall the first level really and it was set in some sort of garbage disposal facility and the 1st end of level boss was composed of garbage.
Can anyone help?
Many thanks

Is it Thunder Hoop, 1992, Gaelco?

Hey, ebaimoon, no worries. Glad I got it on the first hit because I couldn't really see many alternatives. :hello:

Chris, it was basically an application of the principles in my Virtual MAWS tutorial:

How to Turn MAME into a Virtual MAWS Database - viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1762 :V:

So yeah, flicking through all the platform games in catlist with snaps on and looking for anything which might fit the "garbage disposal facility" stage theme. I must've also played Thunder Hoop once or twice before because something just clicked when I saw it in the list.
