Abhishek Bhattacharya:
Hey guys, I remember playing a game quite some time back (I guess more than 3 years back). Barely remember anything useful, but it was a space oriented game. You had space ships which you had to build and there would be a map where you will start off. There were planets in that map which you would need to harvest to get resources and then build stuff. The whole game is in space only and no land is involved. I remember that you can travel from like one map to another by going through this black hole kind of thing. Like galaxies. Start off in one galaxy with your head quarters and go to other galaxies when resources is all used up. I remember there being ships called Dreadnought, Corvette etc...Not a lot of info I know but would be great if someone call help out with the name. :)

That's sounds like Galactic Civilisations 2, but it could also be Master of Orion or Sins of a Solar Empire or...all sorts of things

2) I dont remember if it was on the Nintendo 64 (think it is tho) or could be a PC game. You are a yellow and black robot and i think you can change into different kinds of robot things though and u can stomp on cars and you can fly too. Also remember something about a train crashing and u have to try to stop it?

Blast Corps?

I can't remember for the life of me the name of this game. Had to of been in the ps2-xbox games. got it at the video store played it and never thought about it again

its like morrowind and oblivion. I think theirs only swords and bows in it. The main character is a GIRL and you cannot select a male character and she actually talks (unlike morrowind) I cant remember much about it but I dont think you can stray away from the main quest and I think the final level is your fighting this hovering monster (who i think is a girl as well) and your in a 2 story room and theirs 4 levers you have to switch before you can begin to fight the boss. I believe you picked up new weapons off of dead bosses and beasts you fought but i also think you could sell them. I believe the main character also looks like laura croft too. It was 3rd person and your camera is placed behind the character not above. good graphics too. wasn't cartoonish either.

Jeff Mayo:
I had an old computer game when I was a kid. it was top down and you played as a guy and had to get through each level and get keys to open doors. It was kinda like a puzzle because each level would be set up different and the floor changed a lot. Ice, water, ground, treadmill trips. stuff like that that would make getting around hard. You could get items like flippers, ice skates, suction cup shoes, stuff like that to make moving around easier. You could also build walkways by pushing blocks of ground into water. I have no idea what the name is but it was fun and hard. Also some stuff would be booby trapped so if you pushed a block of dirt there could a be a bomb under it.

Gotta be Chip's Challenge.

I remember a PS1 shooting game, where you could play 1-4 players.

I think you could choose between being either one of two guys and one of two women.

Don't know how to describe it more specifically..

But please help me find the title!!! Thanks!

I remember this one game, probably from the nineties I think. It was a CD-ROM, and you played as an elephant, I think a detective elephant, that went around doing things in Egypt. You had to find some gems so you could put them in the door to a pyramid. I can't find it online anywhere, so if anybody has any leads, please help >_>;

When I was younger I remember playing this pc game. It took place in medieval times, even around the time of the bubonic plague (one of the characters had a wagon full of bodies). In the game there are quite a few wizards, you play alongside one, he has an ENGLISH accent and he has a red robe with shapes on it (its NOT a fighting/rpg game.) There are several quests you need to complete. In one quest you had to get wax from this creepy looking beekeeper and use that wax for another quest (kinda like a trading game.) In one of the town areas there is a food market where you can buy rat (yes rat!) to eat. There is a girl in the game similar to Marilyn Monroe, standning over an air grate. There is also these green booger-ghost type of characters who sneeze alot(I wanna say they're ghosts.) I REALLY WANNA KNOW THE NAME OF THIS GAME!!!! If you could find out the name that would be great :) Thank you!

That sounds a lot like Discworld 2.

Well. I remember playing this game and I think it might be created at the same date as oddworld. Well I remember it had great graphics in those days. It was fighting game in which players got weapons. The character I remember was - Knight, Cannibal, Zombie or smth, Queen/princess or smth, Miner or smth... Well Knight was all in armor and like I remember from a movie there was some kingdom of those knights and they had a king with golden armor. His weapon was sword. Cannibal, was a big fat monster with a haircut of a punk. Ohh and one eyed. From movie, he was chasing some guy and at the end eated him also it was shown bones of the poor guy. He like cached him and broke his spine with his knee. Zombie or smth, had a stick weapon or a club or a wood... From movie, he was returned to life from the dead bodies lying on each other by aliens or smth. He was blue skinned. He could also vomit as attack.. Queen was wearing sexy red dress some hat and holding weapon smth like sword... Miner was big ugly guy, with beard. He could throw bombs at you.
Please help, I'm so into playing it again...

Hello everyone.
Looking for a game which I played in the 90ies, at the times of Pentium 1 and Riva TNT graphics.
In concept, it was a Wipeout\Slipstream 5000 kind of game:
- racing with combat elements
- spacecraft\antigrav vehicles
- various weapons and upgrades
- partially closed (tunnel), partially open-space racetrack
- predominantly "dark" scenery, if I remember correctly, some tracks featured lava

That's all I can remember...

Hello,

I am looking for a game I played ten years ago. It was some kind of Medieval role playing game.
The gameplay was top-down perspective (like GTA II and Diablo III).

On some point in the game you were in a small village. On the outskirts of the village were some guards. In the village was an armory where you could buy Maces, Swords, Staffs, Crossbows, etc.
Outside the village was wild nature with lots of mobs: Reptiles, bees, cavemen, etc. I still remember that every mob had different levels. For example: There were green, red and blue reptiles, all with different strength and different health. The further you came outside the village, the harder the mobs were.

If you came close enough to those mobs they started to attack you. After you killed the mobs they dropped a small brown bag with gold, bows, armor, and things like that, which you could sell in the armory.

You will be my hero if you know the name of this game!

Hello
Sorry for my bad English
Please help me.A cup of years trying to find the two games. I playd them on sega mega drive 2.
At first it is a car, shoot it, you have a lot of opponents, who have cars, trucks.Game has a lot of levels. Observers of the game from the air. Collect the weapons, when you kill enemies, I think.
second game was similar to the Olympics, there are an athlete, boxing, hockey, may be practicing ... The characters are small, with large heads, reminding the children.
Please if you know of a game that reminds you of this, to write, because I'm looking for this for a long time already, those are my two favorite games from childhood.
:) Thanks

Not sure how active this still is but...

I'm looking for a game the 90s. It was a 2D PC platformer. You played as a wizard who wanted to marry a girl, but because he was a terrible wizard who can't pass the year, you are sent on a quest to kill a massive evil wizard. You fire bolts of lightning (?) from your hands and can get white potions in the game to speed up fire rate for a short period of time. There was another kind of potion that let you fire straight through all enemies in a line.

I also the remember the game being split into 4 parts, with an evil boss dude at an end of each part and they all consisted of 10 (I think) levels. Anyone got any ideas?

EDIT:

Some of the levels included

A stage similar to Marble zone (below) in sonic (Minus the lava and grass). This was the first level.
http://roseredprince.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/sonic-the-hedgehog-image-2.jpg

There was also a level which looked like the interior of an egyptian pharos tomb (but better lit), as well as a gothic castle level, a dark foresty level, a lava level and a snow level.

The levels all had secrets in them.

There was a wizard you could talk to but he couldn't be harmed. He also hinted at the first level secret and was in there.

The levels also had several stages to them, with the boss levels having an extra one I think.

EDIT 2:

I found a screenshot of the game (below), but I couldn't find the name attached to it. The account I took this from deleted the photo and google images seemed to still have it. Anyone got any ideas?

EDIT 3:

Found it, it was Hocus Pocus.

Hello everyone :)
I remember the game I use to play back in the 90s (late), maybe beginning of the 2000s. So it was a colorful game, like cartoon... :) You were driving (I think) battery cars (like Truck Mania), but I'm not 100% sure about all that "battery car" scenario. I remember that my favorite car to drive was a yellow school bus. But you could also choose monster truck, normal cal, police car, fire truck etc. It was a race game. And the tracks were challenging. When I say challenging I mean that you had to jump over canons, watch not to get hit by a lightning or get "run over" by pile of rolling stones... I know it's not a lot... But I remember it was a great game so if anyone can guess which game it was from the "guidelines" I gave you, I would appreciate it. Thank You

Early 00's or possibly late 90's computer game for the mac. 2D ariel view. You control a little yellow tank that has no weapons using the arrow keys. There are three other friendly cpu tanks with different colors that start in the other corners of the screen. You move around square maze-type levels and push blocks into flies and other various enemies to squash them. Flies move around aimlessly and if you touch them you die. The goal of each level is to kill all the flies. I'm in dire need. Please help. SOS.

So, I have been trying my best and researching all over the internet but cannot find any clue. In the mid 90s, I remember buying this set of cards, that were larger than usual, more like the size of a bigger smartphone (samsung galaxy s2). It had wonderfully drawn art work of mythical creatures, like trolls, dragons, goblins, witches etc. The art work was probably edge to edge, almost looked like water colored. The cards also had stats on them, so we played it like Top Trumps. I lost those cards many many years ago and still wish I could find them. The art work was beautiful in them.
The thing that sets it apart was it was a larger sized card with dark, gorgeous art work and each creature had stats. No, I don't think is Magic the Gathering, since their cards are standard or small.

Any help or point to the right direction would be much appreciated :)

Thank you SOOO much for your time folks!! :)

a game boy color game where you time travel to a different era or place and fight monsters with a bison looking monster while you we a prophet to some kind of prophecy

Hi I'm new but will give this a try!

I remember a game we use to play at the corner shop on arcade.(1986-1989)

It was some space game where you chose the planet (red , blue, green, brown) and then played that stage.

I remember you could double jump and get all sorts of guns.

I remember the red stage (red planet) being very difficult with lava all over the place.

Can some one please help with name of this game? It is driving me crazy!!

test

I have another game that is haunting me. Back in the 90's there was a PC game I used to play that was turn based military. I remember listening to Alice in Chains while playing it. So I know it had to be in the 90's. I have searched all over to find the name of the game but cant find it nor can I remember what the name was. If I see the game play screens I will know.

it was a dos game i have deducted. it was on like 7 floppies also. i remember each guy had a different function and there were no aliens.

Kevin Gossett:

Erm one of the Battleisle games is all I could guess at..... What you've given really isn't much to go on.

sorry i am still trying to remember everything about it. it was a third person with a view from the top down. i vaguely remember. it might be a lost cause. the game was really fun though. i remember being able to click move. the box it cam in was the same size as the diablo chest pack. it was a war game but not like the WWII one more current for the time. it was around 1994 when i started playing it. so it had to be either dos or windows 3.1. windows 98 didn't come out til later.

ok, im looking for a game i played when i was in elementary school so idk about 15 years ago.
it was around 1994 ish i also played prince of persia 4d along with it. I remember you wakeing up on and island (maybe) but you start on the island and some guys comes to you asking about your future i think and has something to do with crystal ball if i remember right. but at some point when u explore the island u mess with potions i believe and a mini troll pops up. i want to say its a scary island game but i cant remember. it was almost liek a carnival on the island but had something to do with collecting items to give to the man with the crystal so u can go home. ANY help will be greatly appreciated.

Just reviving an old post I made in the hope that someone can figure them out!

LeBard:
Hey guys! OK, so let me try give a setting for this:

When I was a kid maybe back in the early 2000's, my cousin lent me one of his games to play. Unfortunately, it was rated "M" and so i had to try and sneak around to play it. I played it for maybe 20 minutes before getting caught and having it taken away from me, but what i do remember is a 2D side scroller about a man in a suit (a spy? maybe) he drove a black car and it was a little goofy the way he'd get out. The background, from what i remember, was predominantly red. Though at first i was certain that it was a game on the n64, i havent been able to find such a game. I also had an snes, so maybe it was an snes game instead of an n64 game. And, before you guys say it was my imagination, my cousin agreed that he did give me a game like that. My mom never gave it back to him (lol) so he never really got a chance to play it either, but remember pretty much the same thing. He is certain that it was for the n64 but i don't want to exclude the snes

I doubt if the game was any good (haha) but i remember it since it was the first Mature game i played, even if for a fleeting moment.

anyone think they could help me out? I'm sorry about the lack of much of a description, but it'd be awesome if anyone could pull a Sherlock and figure it out!

LeBard:
Also, also, also! Pardon me for my nostalgia trip but there was this online game on the website called Bonus.com
The website is defunct now but they had these awesome games, and if anyone could help me find the name of some of em' I'd be grateful

One I know the name to, it's called P-Man. You'd choose from a few stick figure animations and woud fight against a friend, throwing random objects at each other and using the umbrella to deflect em. with each throuw, however, your super bar would go up and when it was full you'd be able to use your super move, which were fun and hilarious to watch.
I can't find a link for it, though. darn shame.

The other was some sort of magic game. You'd walk around on a grid, using spells from materials you had to set traps and take out enemies.

Another set of games from bonus.com that i really want to find out about were the point and click adventure games. they were AWESOME. The one i remember the most is this one where you wake up on a beach and have to look around to find notes, and at the end of the game i think there are like two brothers or something that use magic and you have to choose the right brother to get the best ending. It was a very mind boggling game and i just wanted to find it.

There were several other point and click games, one where you had to escape a castle you were in. i remember the first few rooms had knights in armor hanging on stands, but thats about it

If anyone else remembers the point and click games at least, id be eternally grateful :)

EDIT: while we're at it, foxbox.com used to be a website that had all these interesting games on it. it was for fox kids, before 4kidstv came up. The games on the site i forget about are

1. This sort of cartoon prank web series that included this red headed kid pranking everyone. the one i remember most was the prank he pulled on his sister by making a dog fart in her room, but it backfired when the dog moved to his hiding spot and farted right into it (LOL)

2. this tiny people racing game, you'd have to mash a button to move and hit another to jump, and you played it with a friend as a race.

Pardon again if my list is overbearing but i remember craploads of games that kept me busy as a kid and it'd be nice to remember them :)

Much help would be appreciated

Hey guy, I've got a game I've been looking for.
I am not sure if this game have been asked already, since going through 110 pages would be eye killing...
I remember playing it around the 1990s, but then the game might be older than that I am not sure since got the game in a burned disk along with other games, and it was lost long ago.
here are the details of the game.
- it's a top view 2-D space game
- You got to choose which spaceship you with to use, you can also choose to be alien or Human
- Your base starts with full barriers and it looks like a planet surrounded by green circles(Red if its enemy home base)
- You gotta gather resources from other planets, some will have little. With the resources you can trade it to your home base or other planet you've put your people on. (every planet can only take so much resources, or else it will have no value to that planet)
- You have to upgrade you planet in order to purchase better weapons or have more in stock.
- Your upgrade includes barriers, speed, resource gather speed, fuel tank capacity, better lasers, little bombs, the best out of them are nukes.
- You can choose to attack your own planet if you wish, but they will turn red.
- You have to buy addition ships so you can respawn after the ship gets destroied.
- There are also neutral race which you can trade with, but they wont have any ship. (The only ship that flys around are the AIs you decided to play against, and yourself.)
- The whole game sets in space, there are no planet surfaces. The backdrop are just black space filled with stars.
- Radiation can also decrease population on planet, it will occur after nuking it. You can also decrease the radiation by weapons.
- Planet will give you money to transport their citizens to other planets.
If you know the game name please leave me a responds, it would be much appropriated.
Thank you ~~!

Forsaken?

Hey everyone!!!

I have been looking for this game, but I don't remember the name of it(duh, or else why would I be writing here), and it's killing me!!!
I apologize in advance because I have bad grammar and I don't know a lot about the wordings used in games, therefore; my post is going to be confusing.

I played this game back in 2004. It has 2 series.
I believe it's those point n click/ adventure game, a lot of combing items and tools in the game. This game took me hours to finish one series.

The main character is a blonde girl. In the first one, she's looking for her parents (I believe, I hoping), in the end she built a jet pack after combing a lot of items, and flew all the way to some island/ somewhere to look for her parents.

In the second one, the game starts off with the main girl in a cleaning room, I remember she found a ladder and some paint to help her get out off the room. Then she went downstairs to go out on the street, and on the way she found more stuff... Eventually she reached to the outside of a museum, took me a while to get inside... and that's all I can remember >w<

This is not a typical escape game, instead of staying in mall or rooms; there are a lot of different scenes/ places in the game.

Thank you very much for reading this, I hope I can find out the name of this game eventually ^^

HI can someone help me please. I'm trying to find this old game i use to play. It was a browser game that partly and had a download for the battles, as they were 3d you would create buildings and control the units. It was a rts and i believe it was set in the viking era or something and was also multiplayer based.
The batlle area was nice green fields i believe.
Thanks Jibbz

Hello guys, looking at most of these posts makes me feel very old, since my question goes back waaaaay back to 1985/86 maybe 1987? who knows...

I remember growing up around greater Los Angeles area, there was a Liquor store by my house that had a coin-up arcade game which I played 24/7, if I can recall, it was next to another one of my favorites coin-up games from back in the days "Double Dragon". I wish to know the name of the game, Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

The Theme: The game starts with a boy inside a class room, perhaps the setting takes place in a high school or junior high.
If I can remember correctly, the 1st stage goal is to get closer to the front door so that the boy could exit the class room and scape. He would move desk to desk knocking out all of his classmates one by one, one at a time. After exiting the room, I believe the second stage takes place in the hall way of the school, but that's all I can remember. It was a very difficult game, I was 8 years old back then.

Any suggestions will be highly appreciated, Thanks!

Alright, i'll try and describe this as best as i can. I played a game when i was younger, about 6-7(i'm now 19). it was for the PC and it was a Robot game. You play as an army of Brown robots vs Silver robots and you start off assaulting the base of the silver robots and you can customize your robot with different ways of moving, body styles, weapons etc... But for the life of me, I can't remember what it was called. I bought the game from wal-mart and i played it on a Windows98 so it's pretty old.

Trouterrious:
Someone else asked about this game as well, but I found no answer to it. You controlled a toy helicopter, the tutorial was a snow level, the first level is a backyard, and the second level is a tub. In the first level, you fly around rescuing and murdering army men toys. There is a sandbox, croquet, a patio, and a small garden with venus fly traps that attack your helicopter. The tub level is a confusing one, that I remember having portals, and required you to drain the tub by shooting holes in the sides. The game had an isometric view.

i think the name of the game is army men

I've checked all the Army Men games that include piloting a helicopter as the main point of the game, and none were the game. It may have been, but I'd need a title for which Army Men game. I highly doubt it's an Army Men game, though.
