In search of Alpha Waves...

I am searching for a DOS video game from the late 80s or very early 90s called Alpha Waves. I believe it was made in a country called France...

The (CGA!) video game would place you as a "bouncing polyhedron" within a 3D, two-point perspective cube-shaped room.

You would bounce from one platform to another within a room.

Each platform would give you the energy to jump higher, and you would try to escape each room by navigate the platforms.

Some platforms would be at an angle, while others "sucked" energy out of your bouncing polyhedron.

Various objects (like a flying polyhedra "snake") would fly around and try to knock you off the platforms, to prevent you from escaping.

Some rooms had no "gravity" and would require alternative methods to navigate.

Additionally, you had a timer that would force you to escape rooms to receive bonus time. You would not receive bonus time for rooms you had already visited. Once your time ran out, the game would be over.

Does anyone have a copy of this game anywhere, or know where to find it? Thanks!
