There is a PS1 game that i can't remember the name of!

All i can remember is that it was a turn based game just like Final Fantasy and it was about a girl or a boy who could summon monsters with her/his flute and these monsters would fight for her/him with the enemies!

Hi, what a great threat.
I really hope someone out there can help me with this one.

I once played a demo of a game with the word Virus in the titel.

the plot was rather classic with the robots taking over the world or something similar, and then you had to move around in your hover vehicle and destroy enemy robots, find new weapons and ammo for weapons you already got.

I remembered that it was vieved from birds view

Is it Vyruz: Destruction of the Untel Empire?

YES! THATS IT! Thank you SO MUCH! :D

Hi! I just joined because I've been trying to remember the name of this game for YEARS, and I've had no luck so I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm a little hazy on the exact details, but it was a PC game with a disk sometime in the mid-late 90's. It was an adventure/mystery/educational type game, where you had to collect clues to solve a mystery, and you played as, I believe, a little green dude with one horn. You also had little games inside the game to learn nouns/verbs/etc. I used to LOVE this game as a kid, and I'd love to figure out what the hell is was!

OH! I almost forgot, there's a girl (possibly a ghost, but I don't remember) that narrates and helps you through the game.

Okay, there was this game on the gamecube, an RPG, maybe a JRPG.
The character you played as had a backpack with a big robot arm and hand that you used to fight with.
There was this girl who followed you around, she never talked and she fought with a frying pan.
That's really all I remember.

There's a frying pan in Phantasy Star Online, as well as some of the other versions of the game.

Frying pans really are used in video games more often than people realize, huh?
Anyway.
Good guess but that's not it.
I REALLY wish I could give more information but I just can't.

I really want to know this game

It was on the PS1

You controlled a robot that could transform from a bipedal fighting machine to a hovering strafing shooting vehicle

I do remember that it had police lights on it, if that helps.

I remember that on random battles you fought a guy named "Sky captain" or another player, and you bought tanks to atack the enemy base and helicopters to defend yours, and also capture neutral turrets to help you, and also buy outposts, and also buy 1 giant tank and 1 giant helicopter.

You had 3 weapon slots that you could swap out, the starter being a machine gun, a rocket launcher, and a mortar.

Man I loved that game, if I only I could remember its name.

There was this game on the PS2, it was a racing game, except you were all robots and it was very futuristic. Come to think of it i don't think i ever knew the title

The game was for Nintendo 64 where you played as a ninja, samurai figure that battled with what looked like a smoke pipe. I remember the game was off the wall because one second you would be battling through a temple and in the next section you are fighting with your giant mech warrior ninja. One of the other playable characters was a fat ninja that carried around a large ham. I want to play this game again if I could, though I doubt I will find the same amount of charm in it now as I did when I was younger.

This thread may be a life saver! I'm looking for two games.

The first one was played on an Apple IIc. I think it may have been more of a "get to know your computer" type of game. All I can remember is you moved between screens and manipulated objects on the screen (no character, or anything, you just controlled a cursor), and one screen had a skeleton in a box. The box had a small hole in one side, and you had to drag a key to the hole to open the box. Then you could drag the skeleton out of the box. I also remember that you could drag objects from other screens and put them in the box.

The second game was played on Windows, probably 95. It may also have run through MS-DOS. This one was more of an educational game, I believe. It was sort of like Carmen Sandiego, in that you had to do a number of repetitive levels between story cut-scenes. Also, many times you would just get the same cut-scene. I think the story included the bad guy taking over television, maybe to brainwash the world? The only thing I remember for certain is the antagonist's satellite taking over the "good" satellite. The graphics were cartoon-y, and the bigger "bad" satellite drifted up, opened a mouth and swallowed the "good" satellite.

Can anyone decipher either of these games?

Mystical Ninja: Starring Goemon?

reposting... since my post got lost two pages ago...

Hello everyone... im looking for 2 games that i used to play when i was...8~9... it was for playstation 1

what i can remember of these games are:

1 game: you started at a beach... there was a compass in your top right screen if im correct... you needed to walk a lot to reach a hidden stone door near a mountain.... it was first person, if u turned right... the char would turn 90º to the right.... the same thing about the other directions, the walking was kind slow... when you engaged in battle... it looked like a strategy rpg (like... turn based... with glowing squares below the char u selected...) scenario the main char had long white hair e.e (also this game was all in japanese)and it was in 2d

2 game: your char was a rat... a yellow rat... or a yellow animal... the only thing i can remember is that in one of the stages... you had to escape from the sewers while standing on a tree leaf being dragged by the waters, you had to dodge incoming obstacles, it was a demo disc that included spyro, hot shots golf and gex enter the gecko e.e

thx everyone in advance

This one is going to be really vague but we'll see..

Only thing I really remember is that it's a 2d Top down game and that you're playing a caveman. And for the exact console I can't really say but I'm pretty sure it's either the Snes or the genesis but I could be wrong.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions. :)

It's a very old game like around 1990-2000ish(PC), it's sort of an fps/third-person can't really remember. I only had the demo for it and you started off with a basic weapon. It was not a violent game and you only shot your opponents with balls. I think the color was yellow. You could pick different levels and pick up weapons and ammo. I can only remember one where you shot discs. It was also very arcady, and you could take elevators and get power-ups to jump up high. I think it was AI only but I'm not really sure. Again it was not very violent and I think the opponents only respawned.

Mystical Ninja: Starring Goemon?

YES!! Thanks just looked up a video and that is it :)

I'm reposting this in case anyone can please help me?

I have no idea what year it was but most likely early 2000s. It was a PC game that had robots/machines and you started out with a base. I think you had to mine metal but I can't remember. You could upgrade your robot machines to make them more powerful and go off to fight your enemies. If I remember correctly the enemies showed up as red dots and they had different types of machines including aircraft and boats for the water levels. Each building created a different machine/robot and each machine/robot took a different amount of time to be built. If anyone ever played the game Age of Empires it was similar to that except with robots/machines. I'm trying to give as many details as I can remember because this is really bugging me

Ok guys I need help drastically, I have been killing myself of this for about 4 years. I have been searching for a game I used to love and play all the time roughly 10-12 years ago. I don't have much to go on. If my memories sever right the main character is a girl with brown hair and I believe her weapon was a boomerang, your party does grow as the game goes on. I do remember one section of the plot, you go to a village at some point and all the villagers are turned to stone, also I believe the last boss is some sort of big master computer or something along those lines. It has a Zelda RPG sorta feel with something like a Final Fantasy fighting style. I played this game on the PC but it may have been emulated so I don't know if it is for sure a PC game. I think the name may have ended in saga but I'm not sure on that. Any help you can give me on this would help me greatly. Thanks!

Hey there. I hate to ask, but are you not receiving messages when you log in or are you going directly to the page where you originally posted? There were two replies to your post in the last week (one of them from me). Can you verify whether or not they're correct?

You also have the sequel to Z(ed), Steel Soldiers.


And here's a Z multiplayer map that has water.

I'm glad I found this forum. Maybe you guys can help me. There was this game I got to play back in 1990, before I could really read. It could date from significantly earlier, though. It was a computer game rather than a console game. It came on 8-inch floppy, as I recall. It looked a lot like Atari's Adventure.

In this game, the hero was in a castle, or perhaps dungeon. He went from room to room collecting square pieces of a puzzle. The aim of the game was to assemble all the pieces in one room. There were various enemies, of course. I don't remember any kind of weapons (there might have been some,) though I do remember you could pick things and some enemies up by pressing the spacebar. And much like in Adventure, some levels had dragons. If they caught you, they took you to a room where you couldn't get out (and probably had to reset.)

I never owned this game or the platform it played on. I'd really like to play it again.

ok so this game was for the ps2. in it you played as a young boy in an epyptian setting. this was a zelda-esqe platformer and hack n slash game in a fully 3D environment. there were spiders and mummies to slay, puzzles to solve, jumping from platforms to platforms,explring tomb and finding hidden artifacts and items etc. not many people know about this game but when i played it almost 10 years ago on friend's ps2 it was awesome. anyone know which game it might be ?

Im trying to remember the name of a ps1 game where, at one point you enter an underground area and there's lavae yoh need to jump across. I remember fighting snakes down there. I also remember you going down there to either meet someone, or rescue them. I know you play as a male. I'm also pretty sure the game is fairly normal but once you get down there, it opens up a whole other side of the game where its a bit more magical. I'm sorry for being so vague but I have a bad memory. I'm also typing this from my phone so please exuse the mistakes.

I remeber playing this game like in 2006 I think it's was made between 2000-2005 it was on the orginal xbox I think it was a good game it was a RPG fantasy adventure the fighting mode was kinda like finial fantasy but the game had excellent graphics you could but the charcters weopons some charcters could only use swords or guns you start of in a kingdom and do some training I went to this lighthouse where there's a teleporter you couldn't use it yet until you do some quests when you go through it it sends you to a eery village you walk everywhere and do qeust for people half way through the Game. You verse this giant robot orb you had to kiil it before it could use these things to heal itself you could get like 1-3 characters I think the game was awsome I really wanna know what it is called please please somebody.helpme before I go insane that's all I can remeber about the game hope it's not any trouble and I know for sure it's not fable or final fantasy don't worry I find it so excited I am it's called sudeki

I can't remember the name of a free Zelda-styled flash game I played.

It illustrated the history of video games, where the items you collected added things like sound, music, and better graphics.

Wait wait, trying to remember this one bugged me for a while.
Is it Future Cop: L.A.P.D.?

ElVasco:

Definitely L.A.P.D Future cop, it's appeared quite a few times in this thread in the past.
Great game.

EDIT: Darnit, ninja'd by under a minute.

Ok, this is bugging me today, I played a game back on the Commodore 64 many a moon ago. It was a spacey kind of theme, I remember it being difficult. Pistols and Rifles were skills you could learn. You had to go into space station bars to interview new recruits to the party. I know the details are sketchy, but I remember the main floor tiling was blue. These complexes were pretty vast. I think there may have been a certain amount of points you had for movement and actions in combat. This is not XCom or Starflight and it's driving me insane :/

I can't remember exactly when I played this game, i think approximately around 1998-99. Not very very old game, it was demo for PC, can't remember the name. About some elf - or wizard, I'm sure it had green hood and crossbow - or simple bow and arrow (it's not Zelda); 2D, looked like arcade, bird's-eye view, closed world, colorful... great paved hall, pillars... character moving in all directions, firing arrows, killing monsters (spiders I recall), collecting potions (not sure for what purpose) and keys to get in closed areas by pulling down the walls... It may be bad game, don't know, but I really want to find it because of strong nostalgic feeling. Appreciate any help, thanks!

Hello! I am searching for a SNES game.

It was a 1D (I think, possible 3D) space game, it was a bit open world where you could go trough wormholes etc. to get to the next "areas". When you showed the map by pressing start/select/L or R, you got up a map that was a grid where you could see e.g your spaceship, your enemy's spaceships and where e.g wormholes/warp drives etc. to travel to another areas. I think the background of the map was black and the grid white... hm

I was playing the PAL version of the game.

Edit: I also think it was mission based game where you would travel space and areas to complete the missions hm

I was thinking about this game I played on ps2. I cant remember much about it but I remember the art style reminding me somewhat of darkcloud 2 while the gameplay was like jak and dexter games. The only other things I remember was the begining of the game you wake up in this guys house and you go outside in the rain where you collect some stuff (not very specific, sorry) and then I think the overworld at the beginning had a river in the middle blocking one side.

That definitely sounds like Evoland.

They're currently making a much bigger/better version on Steam Greenlight. Might be worth checking out?

Hi, I'm trying to find the name of this old game.

It is similar to Zelda I think in terms of game style. This is what I remember from the game:

You start in a small cave next to a town by coming out of some chamber or time travel device thing. You fight with a single hero that uses a sword. The sword can be upgraded into a wind, fire, ice, lightning sword. Each type can be upgraded 3x I think so you can charge and file more powerful attacks. The first thing you do is leave north of town to fight gorilla and slime looking monsters. You have to find a sleeping man in a cave and get some potion to wake him up and power up the windmill to open up another cave. The first boss in that cave is a witch looking thing that teleports around and attacks you with bats.

Can anyone tell me what was the name of this game? It was 2D also.
