It is a simple game played on the Atari 800 XL, and I believe it had 7
stages/rooms and the name of the only one I remember is "Vault". That
room was shaped like: _________________
             |                |
             |                |
_____________| BBBBB  BBBB    |_______________
|                                            |
|                                            |
| BBBB        BBBB          BBBB             |
|                                            |
|                  X                         |

BBBB = Beam that moves side to side and bounces when it hits the wall
or another beam
X = You

You are supposed to get to the top in this room. 

Can anyone help me find the name of this game??

The background was black and the walls and beams were yellow.
There is no answer at this time.

Is there a good place to view screen images for Atari XL games?

I did a whole lot of looking, and it COULD be this game 

Other Manufactures, Atari 8 Bit Game Software 
Activisions Beam Rider.  A beam matrix of iridescent blue light grids
engulfs the distant blackness of Earth-Space.  Now you realize the
beams carry frightening creations in endless configurations.  You roll
up your sleeves, mount these beams with your laser weapons + torpedoes
and ride!!  1 to 4 players, 3 levels of difficulty (16K Computer Min.)
(C).  CB102089   $39.95

Now the object of that game isn't t escape, so I looked on. With your
Color description it could be "Ollie`s Follies" just because the
objecive is to get to the top of a room, but I found NOTHING on
beams... So I search on. You also have "Axis Assassin" Exact same
colors and Yellow beams... but you shoot baddies and you don't escape.

The ONLY way in finding this game would by through this site
its going to take alot of looking cause I looked through about half. I
figure your best bet is to see it yourself for the game memory may be
a bit lose.

If its not there... Then I am sad to say, its lost to the sands of time...

Happy hunting!

No it isn't any of the games suggested in this thread, although I
really appreciate the efforts to help! I wish I could provide more
details about it, but it has eluded me for so long now.
Thanks again for your troubles!
Keep looking please!
