Cuthbert In The Mines is an arcade game loosely based on Frogger... but with twists. Your character appears to be trapped in hell, and has to try to escape to the surface by jumping between levels and dodging the railcars. One of the twists enters here; if you get hit by a railcar, you don't die, but get knocked down one level (except on the bottom level... then you die).

To add to your dilemna, a demon/devil character is on the far right, climbing up and down a ladder, and throws fireballs at you, which you also have to dodge. Quite an entertaining derivative of Frogger.
