I'm looking for a specific arcade game playing while I was growing up back in the 80s and 90s it's got a baby chick or little chicken yellow in color and you ride around in a hot air balloon and you shoot darts or ammo of some sort on to objects and enemies in the ground and in the air in their own air balloon. Can't remember for the life of me what that game is and it has been haunting my dreams and mind for so long now!!! Please if anyone can help me if be eternally grateful!

A PS2 platformer starring an australian kangaroo whose main weapon was a boomerang. For some reason it doesnt seem to exist though I'm adamant I played it when I was younger

Are you sure it isn't Ty the Tasmanian Tiger?

This one's been bugging me for a while. It's a handheld game console from the early 2000s, maybe from around 2001-2008. I can't remember exactly what the console looked like but it had a red and black exterior and had buttons on the right side and arrow keys on the left. The game was black and white, pixelated (8 bit or 16 bit) and simple enough for a 10 yr old to play but still pretty complex.

You would create a robotic/monster-like character that is made up of the head, torso, and legs, and you would move your character around this maze-like dungeon and the mission is to find the exit while defeating enemies that look similar to your character. It was quite difficult to my 10-year old self to find the exit because of the dead-ends and locked doors. And once you run into an enemy (much like in the Pokemon games how you have to battle trainer before you pass them), you go into a battle where you take turns. But during the fight, you don't have any control over how the battle will be played out so you just watch each player taking a strike at the other. Before running into the enemies, you would configure your character's head, torso, and legs to have the best defense and attack. And when you won the battle, I think you were given rewards such as better parts for your character. I remember one of the attacks being a lego-like hand shooting out like Inspector Gadget. I can't remember if there were hp or str stats that affected how the battle played out.

When your character moved across the screen, there was a harsh 8-bit beep, and when you successfully hit or defend in a battle, a low 8-bit beep would be emitted. The map of the dungeon was very simple with thick bordered walls, and sliding doors. Some of these doors would be locked until you defeat the boss.

This is pretty much all I remember of the game, and it's killing me not knowing the name of it. I'm not even sure if anyone's ever played it as well. I might as well archive it in my deepest corner of nostalgia. But I would very much appreciate anyone helping me out!

Help guys, I remember a game that is basically looking for a hidden object, not those modern hidden objects in a bunch of objects. It's like a picture and things that mixes up makes an image looking object, it's a 2D image and if I'm right, I think I played it in a .exe with a bundle of other games inside as well such as Metal Gear Slug. I still remember looking for a hammer but it was either on someone's hair or a wall

Ok, now I need help. It's old sci-fi strategy game with really strange atmosphere. It was with side view and side-scrolling not isometric view like most strategy games. You could choose from three or four maybe different races of alien creatures to play and those were not humanoid creatures - more like wierd, primitive animals floating across the maps. So with those you were able to colonize next planets and teleport from one to another colonizing whole system I think so in the end of the game you were conquering the world in the middle of the system. Of course you were building some constructions with different roles and gathering resources (but actually maybe resources you were getting from factories I am not sure). Maybe also there were some artifacts to gather. I remember game to be very nice looking - well drawn with lots of details so it was not like very very old. Just old :P But 2d for sure. 90's I guess. I was playing this as a kid and have a lot good memories with it and with its unique graphic style. Every few years I am reminding myself the game and getting huge urge to play but then I am not able to remember myself the name :( PLS HELP!

(Hot air balloon at 1:03)

Please helppp! I used to play a game at 90's , which was shooter game.I remember the game involved 1 or 2 players depending on ur own wish. anyway, the game was about killing demons or zombies or monsters with guns , the purpose of the game was to reach to final bosses who had like weak points in where shooting them at leads the highest damage. i remember also their was a doctor involved in the game, a lab and some cops. i remember also one of the bosses were a flying monster that i guess had weak point in his stomach. more hints were that the game had like a mother and a baby and unfortunately (not sure) the baby died while going to the lab to defeat the final boss. i don't really remember any hints about the name of the game, but i guess it was dead something or involved the word dead. more hints that it have like 2-3 parts and everyone differ from other. Thanks so much and pls help me to retrieve my childhood game. :)

Hi! I think this was a racing game. So my last memory of this game goes like this: i played it on pc year was 2000 or 20001-2004, i think and the game featured robotic characters who had a sphere or ball instead of feet and you would race versus them on an obstacle course, there were also arrow indicators on the map like need for speed or other racing games, when you would jump off an ledge you would quake and distort the ground upon impact. Also i remember two of the levels were called Military Arena and Galaxy arena. Anyone know more info about this game?

This one's been bugging me for a while. It's a handheld game console from the early 2000s, maybe from around 2001-2008.

After hundreds of google searches and looking through ebay, toysrus,amazon etc. I finally found it. It's called P-O-X by Hasbro lol. Looking at it again I realize my description wasn't that accurate. Oh well, cheers!

Okay so.. I can't remember a lot but I'll try my best. Not sure when this game was release but its pretty old, something like 2000'ish.. Its RTS and I remember there was like 3 factions or something. The first was some kind of blue monsters or whatever they were, the second some kind of green mutated flies and the third was females only faction that used men to build buildings? (Idk..) One thing that I really remember is that there is a day and night cycle and as soon the evening comes, all your population goes to sleep and then wakes up in the morning and continues to expand and work.

Could it be Alien Nations or its sequel The Nations possibly?

Oh my god yes! That was "The Nations"! Thanks man!

Hi I'm looking for a game I think was in the (late?) 90's.. but not sure. I'll try to describe as much as I can. It's sort of an educational game. Starts with a 'monkey' kid, in a classroom. They get a pop quiz on ancient greece, and he gets sucked into the chalkboard and ends up in ancient greece. He has to solve all kinds of puzzles about the ancient gods and other stuff. At the end he goes back to class and does his pop quiz. Any ideas?

I need to know if anyone found this game. I have been looking got the same one. Unfortunately this post is from a few years ago, but i'm still looking. This is the exact explanation i give others.. plus the teacher saying " A Horse is not always a Horse ofcourse, ofcourse! "

trying to remember a pc game from 90s maybe early 00s. You were on the set of a crime mystery and you had to create a movie by picking clues that made the most sense. I remember one clue with a handkerchief that had the initials ff embroidered. I almost remember a man at a newsstand that gave you hints. any thoughts???

anyone??

Ok more clues that I remembered
-there was a redheaded woman who was one of the main characters and she says "i haven't touched a thing" as her clue
-you can get a clue from the guy at the newsstand
-a handkerchief with embroidered initials was a clue
-something about a fat man sleeping in a chair was important
-i believe you were trying to make a movie, but to do so you had to pick clues that made sense in the story and you couldn't progress or make your movie if you picked the wrong clues
help!!!!

It's this old business tycoon from the 90s where you started in the early 1900s (maybe the 20s?) and had to fill a town's street with shops (restaurant, jewelry, shopping mall, etc), except in other streets some shops would perform better than others (jewelry sold more in rich neighborhoods, per example). Over time you'd advance in years (60s, 70s, 80s up to I think "futuristic" 2000s) and as you did, you'd unlock new kinds of shops, upgrades for 'em, some shops would lose popularity and you could even spread your empire to other streets of town. It had a pretty good depth for such an old game, and I'd like to play it again sometimes.

A bit of a weird one here:

A friend of mine, in junior high, had an interactive screensaver game on his laptop. He called it "Bug War," though I'm not sure if that is the title. It was a screensaver that would auto-play this game until you hit escape to return to windows, or begin using the controls, in which case you would take over for the A.I. and begin playing.

The gameplay was an overhead top-down view and you randomly controlled different machines which looked to be modeled on bugs. I remember a "fly" that cruised around above the ground, and a four-legged spider tank with a large turret. I think all the bullets looked like red or blue orbs. I don't believe you could actually "win" the game, merely keep fighting against enemies until you eventually die or quit.

I've never been able to find any record of any kind that this screensaver/game actually exists, nor have I heard a single other person say it sounds familiar. Please help me determine if I dreamed this up or not.

Bumpity bump.

Hello, I'm looking for the name to an old Commodore 64 or Apple II game. I've searched a number of titles with no luck. It was probably from mid-late 1980s. You go into an old Victorian house and there are these ghosts you need to help. I know there is a plant named Clive or Victor (maybe Victor was the gardener) that you have to be careful doesn't wrap you up [USE SCISSORS] command in the greenhouse, a baby, a ghost who laughs a lot maybe named Letitia? and I remember playing it on a green and black screen. It was a combo of text and basic pictures. it's driving me nuts. I swore it had something to do with manor or mansion, but all of the titles I've looked up don't seem to fit and I've spent a couple hours on it--one lead I found was someone in 2005 asking about the same games, with no answer!

Thanks!

I'm looking for the same game! To add, I remember there being a ghost in a bathtub with bubbles. I also think some of the ghosts needed your help or you're supposed to give them items in exchange for other items.

Adventure 3: Haunted Mansion for C64 (1982)? Haunted House for C64 (1983)? Mystery House (1980) for Apple II? Or Maniac Mansion (1987) for Apple II? If it's not one of them, maybe even Alone in the Dark (1992)?

Nope, none of those are it. It's definitely an 80's game though. Graphics were a little better than Mystery House.

Does anyone remember an old 80s floppy disk game where part of the game involved finding a golden ball/orb? You then use the golden ball to distract a creature in another room. There are other items you had to find/use throughout the game, too.

I know this isn't a lot of info, but does anyone have any clue what this game could be?

Hey guys really hope you can help me! I'm looking for a game for my girlfriend... her sister grew up playing it and she can not remember the name of it. We've narrowed it down to most likely the 80s but early 90s is possible. You wear a dark cloak and when you double jump you float for a little bit. There's an evil witch that will appear and float away and you keep having to fight through enemies to get back to her over and over. At the beginning she says you start at a church/castle and a guy walks out and that's your main character. The trees are crooked and everything is extremely dark themed. The only thing I can think that comes close is Castlevania, and she says it looks EXTREMELY close to that but she swears up and down it's not.

Sorry for the horribly jumbled paragraph I was writing this as she was giving me really helpful details :P

Hope you guys can help, we're all counting on you.

Edit: She thinks it was on a floppy disc, she is pretty sure.

For some reason, this is making me think it may be an early King's Quest game, though I doubt that's it...

I can't remember the name of an SNES RPG that started out in a small village, and everything is in black and white, and the music is indescribable. You do some other things, then you walk out of a house and everything gains color. Your character is a young boy with crazy-ish blue hair (original character do not steal) and you have to look for your little sister. You move past a bush that's shaking, and you go through a maze and find your sister in front of a huge dragon's skeleton which I believe she talks to her mother through. Some talking goes down and suddenly OP monster engages you, you try to defend your sister, and get the shit beat out of you more than your pinkie toe going full speed towards the corner of a refrigerator, and your (Grand?)father comes and either recs him to death or just shooes him away. Some things happen, then your village gets attacked, I think. Later, you get a companion who is an anthropomorphic dog who wields a crossbow. I'm 95% sure there was a boss fight after climbing some mountain thing to retrieve someone's pet cat, and it consisted of three bird THOTs who wanted to eat the you, and occasionally hit each other.

I've wanted to beat this game for so long, but I accidentally reset my computer and lost it within all the games within my ZSNES ROMS folder, never to be seen again. Either way, if anyone can find this game for me, I would be very grateful.

Thank you, and have a good day/night.

Thanks a million, my dude.

Hello everybody.
A browser game similar to Travian. The playable classes are the Vikings and Asians. You had a small city where you could build lumbermill, mine, inn, townhall and stuff...
There was a map where you could do missions to get better equipment for your fighters, or you could sail to America, where some raid missions were available.
Please help me find out what this game is called.

Thank you in advance.

I can't remember a game that i played way back in the 90s. Its either a nintendo, sega genesis or SNES. Its a rpg turn base game. The characters have the dynasty warrior or ronin warriors anime style look. When you fight, it take you to a battle arena that look like a chess board and you take turn picking which attacks to use. It could be one of those japanese exclusive game. If anyone can find this game, i love you!!!

*** update ****

i found it, game name is dragon force :)

I had to make a post after this thread helped me find Mysteries of Time and Space. I'm trying to think of the name of another flash game. All I can remember is playing it on addictinggames in the early-mid 2000's. It was a flash game where you were a ghost trying to solve the mystery of your death. Very dreary...I ONLY remember night scenes on city streets, and I believe it was raining.

Could be "Ball Breakers" (2000) aka "MoHo".

Hello all! I need some help!
I can't find a game I was playing in the early 2000s. It was a PC game, I was playing it on Windows XP (but it might have been even older). It was a 2D point and click adventure game. It had a "noir" atmosphere, I think it was in black and white, gloomy and rainy, with jazz music playing. You were a detective, with a fedora probably but I am not sure about that, and you went around a city finding clues. I disctinctly remember a scene where he went down some stairs to a subway station where he found a piece of paper. Another scene was him going in an alley.
The whole interface was just the detective walking either left or right on a still screen which changed when you got to the side of the screen you had chosen.
I am sorry if it has been asked before, but I haven't found it in many days and I am going crazy!
Excuse my english too, they are not very good, but I have described it as well as I could...

My sister swears the game is called Mystery Manor. But I can't find any 80's floppy disk game by that name. The only search result I end up getting is for the recent Facebook game (of the same name) for ipads and androids.

Hi! I was talking to my friend the other night and we were talking about all the computer games we use to play as kids. Well there was just one I couldn't remember the name of. I played it in my 4th grade math class(2000-1), you were a male character who was trying to save his favorite celebrity(female) from an evil scientist. I could swear it was a math game, but maybe I just assume it's a math game because I played it in my math homeroom? If anyone could make any suggestions I'd really appreciate it! Thank you!

Lucas Menecheli:
Can someone please help me with this one?

It's an old game, say beginning of the 2000s. I remember being an RPG game where you controled several characters, one of them being a Minotaur-boy creature (there was also a warrior). It's like a turn-based rpg and the fields were like a chess table. I looked it up and it's sort of like Partia, but instead when you entered a fight, the characters would become bigger. I remember you could fight goblins and other monsters.

I've been dying to remember the name of this game, but no success. Help!

Sound like a Shining Force game.

Vanitas96:
I remember an rts game on the pc, it was about 3 alien factions, one yellow/orange, one red and an blue one.
its starts with a cutscene with some of the yellow/orange ones meeting up and then getting a message about there base or something finding a unknown alien (one of the red ones) then later it shows the red one attacking everyone at the place, then looks towards the camera and says something then it ends, it with the yellow/orange ones decide to prepare for war.

sorry if not very helpful, i was a kid back then so memory is a bit vague.

Could it be KKND 2: Krossfire. KKND=Krush Kill 'N Destroy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDePzS8ZEtM

I just had a memory return to me of playing a game on PC at least 10 years ago. I remember it was rescue and fire fighting kind of game in a city, river, and other locations. Some things I distinctly remember:
1. A part where you race through a river full of obstacles as rescue dolphin. (I guess the game had animals as well?)
2. A part where you drive around a city (maybe to find the fire? I'm only sure about the driving part)
3. Going into a museum of some sort that is breaking down or having a fire and rescuing people

I believe the game was 2D for the most part (with perspective still, but not an actual 3D engine). The game, I think, may have been a CD game. I've been searching intensely but still came up short. I would really appreciate some help!

Foreword: Just in case you, dear reader, know any of those games below, I'd be most grateful if you'd send me a private message, instead (or in addition to) replying in this thread. The reason is: I simply don't visit this thread very often and your reply could get buried somewhere within 40 new pages I won't have time to go through. Thank you.

Now to the meat: I'm looking for 2 games I've played at my friend's PC long, long time ago (almost 20 years ago).

GAME Nr. ONE:

- The game was definitely released in late 90' or very early 2000'.
- It was isometric, somewhat "point'n'click adventure" game mixed with RPG.
- Player could choose 1 of 4 characters to play with. There was a man, a woman, some kind of a beast-man (all I can remember about him is that when selected, he'd say "Igor... MAD!" or something) and either a short dude in duck-like helmet or actually a duck-man (it was too long ago for me to actually remember).
- 1st stage was in prison. The player escaped their cell by getting a key from a bread loaf. Later they had to talk to some guy that helped remove a slave collar they have been wearing.
- 2nd stage was in some docks. I vaguely remember the player had to buy a beer at a tavern for some drunk guy in exchange for something (I don't recall what it was... either a key or a potion).
- 3rd stage was on a ship full of zombies. I remember a moment in which the player had to use an invisibility potion in the right time to pass through a zombie-crowded area of the ship.

------------------------------------------------

GAME Nr. TWO:

First of all: Due to the game being about toys, let me say what I'm NOT looking for:
1) Toy Story based games.
2) Army-men (the lil' plastic soldiers) games.

Now to what I do remember about the game:

- 3rd person perspective. Perhaps there was an option to switch to 1st person, but unsure.
- The game was about toys, most/all of which were animal-like in shape, although many were bipedal.
- The toys have used guns to shoot each other.
- The game was happening in a living room (huge from the player's perspective, as you were playing as a tiny toy).
- The games mechanics revolved around switching characters by picking up special tokens with the character icon/portrait. Each character had an unique ability, for example a Cat could climb furniture and a Dragon could glide by pressing jump button repeatedly.
- As far as my friend told me, this game came pre-installed when he got his computer (Windows, probably 98 or 2000).

Thank you all in advance, and just as a reminder: I'd be grateful for sending me a PM if you know any of those games. Otherwise I might miss your answer.

im looking for a ps2 game that ends with a nuclear explosion in the background and the group of heroes is looking at it in the ending with one of them climbing out of a sewer or pipe.
sorry its sadly all i remember.

I also remember it being an isometric rpg game.

Sounds like Fallout:Brotherhood Of Steel. I still play this game on xbox and there is a ps2 version.

Ending starts at about minute 26. Heroes look off towards the nuke after the end credits around minute 31
