This is a liberated game: it was originally sold as shareware but eventually author Dave Ashley made the whole game as a free download, and released the source.

Description (by MrFlibble)

Scavenger is an arcade puzzle game similar to Lode Runner. You must collect all items on a level while avoiding enemies before you can proceed to the next stage. Completing this objective in a certain way (e.g. without trapping an enemy in a pit you dug) will yield extra score points.

The game comes with a level editor and a graphics editor. It's also been ported to Linux.
