Very old computer game, what was it!!?

I am searching for an old game, prob talking about BBC Micro LONG LONG time ago Or if not then very very early PC.
All I can do is describe it.....

It was a level based game that had a load of rocks, balloons and arrows on the screen and YOU.

You had to use the man to move rocks that allowed arrows to fire across the screen that would burst balloons that would allow a rock to fall that might free an arrow that would.....

An YOU must survive anything you triggered.

Ring any bells with anybody?

Driving me nuts!

I'm guessing Bomberman (Still available as a Flash game I think!)

 Is this your game??
Otherwise ...

Repton:The Lost Realms ?

If not graphics better/worse?
Did you start with a screen of rocks (Like Pit)?

Ok a bit more is coming back to me!! LOL

Each level was cleared by the arrows bursting ALL of the balloons on the level. Once an arrow fired across the screen it couldnt move again. each level, more balloons.

Can't find anything that matches - might it have been a Commodore or Spectrum game?

it's not the level on show, but there is a level similar to what you describe, just wondered if it provoked any memory circuits!
