He played the game 13 or so years ago, that doesn't mean it was released then, it could be older.
Also, he didn't say the game was in 3D.
EDIT: Apparently he did say it probably was 3D on a later post, so scratch that. :)
Not 3D, but Sleepwalker was a platform similar sounding to the original question. http://www.mobygames.com/game/sleepwalker
