Old floppy disk game, similar to Adventure

I was 5 or 6 when I first saw this game. It would have been 1991 or 1992. It was a floppy-based game. That's 8-inch: the kind that was actually floppy. (Or so I remember. Does my memory deceive me?) I couldn't tell you what computer system it ran on, but it was definitely a desktop computer, not a video game console. And the controls were all keyboard. No mouse, as I recall. (Again, if something sounds familiar and a mouse was involved, by all means, try your answer!)

The game had a very similar look and similar controls to Atari's Adventure. The object of the game was to go from room to room collecting pieces of a puzzle and then take them all to one room to assemble. There were various enemies to fight or avoid, including dragons in some levels. I have no idea what the game was called; I hadn't really learned to read yet. Does anyone have any ideas?

Mario Adventures

I can't even find the game you're talking about. As I recall, Mario had nothing to do with it. And I knew who Mario was.

It used a top-down perspective, if that helps.
The aspects of puzzling & rooms are a myriad of possibilities. Impossible Mission is such a nice puzzler, but not the right one, it's not top down.
Around that time many games where developed for amiga, c64 and pc similarly.
that big size of disk (usually 3,5 or 5,25) is clearly not amiga nor c64.. maybe it's just the (more common) 5,25 inch
names could be from Gauntlet to Garrison, Alien Breed, Mike the Magic Dragon

Any chance it's Chip's Challenge?

Could it be part of the Ultima series? Allot of those ran w/o a mouse and resembled Atari. I'd check out Akalabeth, and Ultima 1-4 or so
