It was for the PC, and wasn't entirely a clone, but was very strongly influenced by it at least. The graphics were fairly primitive by today's standards, and I'm pretty sure it was a DOS-based game. A lot of the initial enemies were waves of ghosts, and they had spawn points that you had to destroy. Another enemy was a whirling dervish type creature. It had a robust level editor. I think there were 99 levels that were surprisingly well-designed, a cheat code allowed me to warp to any level, and the final level was a difficult, gigantic floating skull?
(I'm not thinking of Get Medieval, by the way. This is earlier.)
