So...my oldest son and I (he is age 30) were discussing old games last night and we recollected Soltice, Grandia, the Pit (Ascii game...that is how far back we go) and more but he couldn't recall this game I described and I found this forum by searching for aspects of that game...so.... ... it is about a Tree that you live in... I remember the characters walking up and down the tree and bringing water to it etc... it wasn't great graphics of course..so it was not true walking motions but that cardboard cut out walking type game if I recall correctly.. Does anyone remember that far back?

Hey guys! I need help here. There is a game that I don't remember the name. Some of the things that I remember are:
- Shooter
- 1st person
- 180 degrees range for shooting
- You can't move, you just can move your gun.
- You have to kill enemies that falls with a parachute from a plane.
- You can shoot the plane, but you have to wait for what brings the plane because sometimes bring enemies or supplies to use.
- PC game.

Okay I'll give up on finding out the name of that other game I posted about, but instead I have another one that I want to know the name of.
It was a PC game, cartoonish style and was basically a racing game.
The characters each had a different style, like one racer had cupid's style and was named Romeo, and another was a pumpkin named Zeek?
There were multiple playable stages, and each stage had a racer that matched it's design (like a Halloween style course that Zeek's character appeared to suit).
You could collect stars in the game as you raced, and it was a 3D style game
If anyone knows and can tell me the name of this game, it'd be much appreciated! :D

Mariusz Pilipczuk:
My friend is having trouble remembering the title of a game she played when she was very young. About 10 years ago.

It was about an alien trying to save his alien girlfriend, and the game starts with a comic strip of her being kidnapped. In the game, the alien is inside a bubble and must collect coins and avoid pirates. It is a 3D platformer. It ran on Windows XP and had old-style 3D graphics. The alien apparently looked like "beast boy" from "teen titans".

Anyone recall anything like this?

I used to play a game, I think it might have been on the Internet, and here were tiny green aliens that you had to raise and they made more aliens and they looked a bit like birds. Thet got attacked and got sick and stuff and then when you had enough at the end they left the planet?? All I can remember can anyone help?

I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR AN OLD GAME that I played on my computer for A LOOONG TIME!!!!

I remeber my dad buying a new computer in the early 2000's and it had a bunch of games already installed.
It had trials of games, you know the ones that you can only play like 5 times before they ask you to buy it.

The one im looking for is like a 3d game where you're in the sky/air. there are lots of pink clouds around and you could fall off if you missed a block.
The floor is made of blocks and you control this little pink blob looking thing, with the arrow keys. You have to make him jump on the blocks and it turns them into a gold color.
You have to turn all the blocks gold to complete the level. And i think you can make him land on blocks with cherries or cakes to power up and it has different effects on how many blocks you can change at a time.

That is all the game was, just a little pink thing that you controlled to turn all the blocks gold.
I remember a lot of pink, like it was for little girls. And blob had huge eyes! it didn't look anything like Kirby tho if anyone is wondering. and it looked 3dish.

HELP ME!!

Any clues yet, folks? I'm trying to remember this one too. The computer was some kind of Dell xps thing from the early to mid 2000s.

Different cubes in the game had different properties. Some would fall away when you jumped on them, some would cause you to slide, and some had treats like cupcakes or fruit that would give you powers (I think). I don't remember what the enemies looked like, but I know that one of the boss battles was against some kind of lightning storm. I also recall lots of stars or clouds along with lots of pink and purple. I've asked my sisters if they remember the name (we all played through dozens of levels of this thing), but they can't remember yet either.

Alright, so not a lot to go on here, but it's my last hope.

-Driving game
-3rd person
-Early/Mid 2000s or earlier
-Cars had guns
-There was a purple shuriken gun that shot a 3 spread
-Sort of looked like Hot Wheels

Open to suggestions, I can't remember anything else.

SniperTB:
Hey, I'm still searching for the name of a game form the 90s (?).

In this game you control a catapult/cannon mounted on a castles wall and have to hit targets.
After a few rounds, there where bonus games, like you have to shoot babies at baby bottles or dart arrows at balloons.
The ammunition of the catapult/cannon differed between rocks/balls to rockets and - like above - babies and dart arrows.
I don't remember the exact year and if it was a DOS or Windows game.
Would be great, if someone knows it.

Hellow everyone :)

I'm looking for a long time now for a game I used to play in around 2005.

In this game, youre making trains in *depot*. You can create two-(iirc) types of locomotives, one is kinda basic, can't recall it, the other one is electronical engine and can carry more wagons.

The wagons you're making are like cannon wagoons, one is called mortar (iirc), then there also was a kamikaze locomotive, that blew up against enemy trains. All you do is navigating your train to shoot and kill creatures or destroy other trains.

== It was top-down isometric old 2D game, with happy kinda graphics ==

There is only single player missions, in some, youre fighting "fly-like" monsters, that are attacking your train, in others youre fighting trains like your is. Your locomotive and wagoons are all-(iirc) orange colour.

I recall there was a mission in swamp, where you began with your train, and you had to defeat the swamp monster with it. There were some of those "fly-like" weak small monsters too, and a broken depot which you came to repair and build stronger train to defet this big swamp monster.

Then I recall there was a levels in winter areas, in which you fought other trains...

Then there also were levels where the enemy trains were guarding city-like enviroments, that you had to get into ...

I was looking all round the fu****g internet, and I found nothing :( even with all the things I can recall from the game... ANY HELP would be appriciated !!!!!!

Thanks a lot and have a great day :)

Hello,

Im trying to find a game I played on the pc in 2003 or 2004, it was an arcade flying game set during World War 2.
I remember that during second mission or level you would fly this grey biplane, the game was kind of similar to Heroes of the Pacific.

Hello all. Just found this forum today, yay, so glad that it still exists... ^^ probably will be using a lot in the future. UNfortunately, I probably won't post a lot of answers- I might know some, but.. more than likely not. That said, I will need a lot more than I give, that's for sure. RIGHT so let's get down to business...

I have two games I'm still desperately trying to find, one I know is Gamecube, the other.. I think PS1 but unsure.

1: it's a kind of odd game, using Gamecube mechanics. You get to draw your own creature, whatever you want, however big or small you want with whatever design. Based on what you drew, how big, how tough, all that.. determines how that monster fares in different tournaments like smaller are better for marathon running, bigger are good for fighting challenges.. and when you complete some of those tourneys, you get new skins or eyes or voices too more personalize your pet. Think the name was something island..? Could be mistaken.

2: a weird take on the knights of old. You play a green dragon that wants to become a knight. What do I remember about it.. You have this clicker pen, you rescue a mermaid at one point, you make a mask of some fat knight's face to infiltrate a castle, you have to catch a kiss in a glass jar, there's an area with catapults that actually use real cats- CATapult- umm... at one point your'e inside another dragon's stomach? IDK if that helps.

Preferred method of contact is at my Facebook or Gmail, [email protected], but as long as I get notifications that someone replied I should be able to check that. Just saying I know I won't be checking this site regularly, so if there's any way for me to know when to check so I don't miss anything.. that's even more epic. Thanks guys ^^

Oh come on, surely you have other sense memories about this game. Was this on PC or console? Do you remember using a keyboard/mouse or a controller? And if it was a controller, what consoles did you own during this time period? And if you didn't own a console, whose house did you play this at?

What was the game like? Did you find yourself trying to back up or drive in circles? That would indicate it was an arena/open world type game like Vigilante 8. Or was it all about speed, on fixed tracks like San Francisco Rush?

Were there actual people in the cars or was a an RC type game like Re-Volt? I recommend going through this list.

hello guys,
About 15 years ago, I used to play a game on PC.A Japanese game that players hit a ball with stick and try to hit the enemy (girls) and after each level, an erotic manga-hentai picture shows. View from top and the name was so difficult to remember: Kobtaki? bukotai?
Please help me, this one makes me crazy in last 2 months!!
many thanks.
M

Sorry, it's not. The login screen literally had circles with different crests, and in game graphics were more of a Dune/Warcraft 1/2 style.

Can you please Help me? I don't remember the name of a game (PS1/PS2) that I played long time ago, this game was set in a sort of labyrinth where you are a skeleton and spawn in a circle of skulls, I don't remember anything else this (sorry for my bad english and thanks in advance)

Pretty sure your second game is Blazing Dragons... no idea on the first, though.

HEY ! First I'm sorry about my english...I'm looking for a old nes game. Nindendo 8 bit. I remember about the girl at the start, she is behind bars I think the game hole idea is safe her. you can choose the characters hair color and clothing and I think u can be boy or girl. This game is avable to play multiplayer. In the game when character have collect all letters, u go another level if I remember right.. Every level there is "flame shaped characters" them can kill me and those sift them selves at the end of level blue flame. I remember one of the big boss in game is like a crocodile challenge. I hope someone will remember the game I remember so little about it but there is hole picture of game in my head .. I have looked for this game everywhere... Can't remember name... SOMEONE HELP ME !!!

Hi there, this is my first post here lol
Okay so I can clearly remember playing this game in 2003 (or 2004 idc it was at my kindergarten's computer) and there was this main character that looked like an oompa loompa (yea) and you could travel through different lands. I know exactly that there was a rocket and you could have gone in space. Also, you had to collect things to get in other places and to finish the game you had to get a crown or something (or maybe not??) And I'm really stressed by the fact that I have no memory of this game's name so if someone could enlighten me, I'd be grateful :D

I had a Tiny computer with windows 98. Basically in the game I remember the character that you controlled to run around the map, which was 3D, had a kind of cone head shape (narrow end being his neck and larger part being the top of his head). The head could have been purple i can't quite remember. anyway, i remember you could run around the map and their was a big dinosaur (Apatosaurus) who would bite you if you got to close. the map had rocks in and grass, thats all i really remember. I am going off my memory from when i was about 4 years old, maybe younger (I am now 20). If someone can figure this out they are a genius. not a lot of info to go on :D

Hi everyone!

Thia may be a hard one. Multiple Google searches have yielded me nothing but one other person looking for this game, haha! My brother and I used to play this MS-Dos game in the early 90's. I can remember a few things - you moved squares on the map, there were pink, blue, and teal squares. The map was colorful and had a mountain of sorts on it. It had some nice music in it. I think the object of the game was to get to the top of the mountain?

Also, I thought it had "Merlin" in the title. That is what my brother and I used to call it. Just all searches have been fruitless. Any leads would be greatly appreciated!

Unfortunately, it isn't. Thank you for the suggestion though. The game I remember had separate players who were each a color (the aforementioned pink, teal, and blue squares) and they were trying to get to the top of the mountain.

Have been trying to find a Old pc game, around 2000 era.
-Kind of like mystery horror game.
-You where alone in a town.
-There is a patrol station. (The only things i remember)
-Some big magical stone thingy.
-I don't think is a big budget game.
-You need to collect item to solve puzzle to finish the game. (I never finish it)
I really hope I can remember this game, so i can finish and see what it's about.

Thanks!!!

any help guys?

Conehead, purple, 3D... have a look at "Tonic Trouble" (1999).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1L-R0ZByJw

my post appears to have been deleted for some reason, I never played it but it was about rescuing a mouse from a cat and at one point you use a potion to shrink yourself, I think it was by Dorling Kindsley

Hi all, help me please.
I can't remember a game i played ten or more yers ago on PC.
It was either RTS (most likely) or RPG. View from the top.
All I remember is search in a forest for some strange blue spheres.
When you activate those sphere you hear a starnge echoed sound.
In that mission you are playing for one character (no team) on a horse.

Also there could be ships in other missions... don't remember.

Good day everyone, I have been searching for years for a specific game for the PC I enjoyed, I do believe it had came in a CD that contained many different games to enjoy but alas I cannot remember for the life of me that game or the CD it belonged to. It was like a bundle of basic games, nothing fancy or epic, just classic late 90s early 2000's games of different varieties/genres but 'this' one im looking for is the one i want to play really badly xD

It acted like a horror game, zombies and monsters, 'YOU' were an odd looking character with no special traits, I can vaguely think 'HE' was wearing blue trousers,green top and typical brown shoes and possibly a red cap. (ill provide a terribly drawn idea of the character xD sorry if you cant make it out)

Your weapon of choice was a RED HAMMER and during your travels in this HAUNTED HOUSE you would come across powerups that would allow you to throw 3 or even 4 hammers at one time, even finding powerups that lets the hammers bounce against the walls for multiple hits.

It was I believe a 2D overhead with a kind of 3Dish element with the main character and the monsters (Maybe Isometric although I still dont understand that that means in a video game)

The controls were obviously a keyboard, it was definiately an old PC game as I remember having the big bulky PC monitor and maybe even Windows 98, I dont think I had windows XP at that point of having this game but I am also unsure if I did.

Sorry if this information isnt really helpful, but if someone can remember this kind of game, youll have my eternal thanks.
