I'm going to sound like complete retard, but I need to know the name of this game...
It's a PC game that I played in the mid 90's. You went to an alien planet and I think you had to deliver a package or pick something up.You also had to go around and talk to aliens to complete missions/quests. It was kind of cartoony with bright colors and there were bars and stores you could go into. I think you may have also been looking for parts to your space ship. The character that you played I think could either be male or female.There was a screen shot on a site that reminded me of it. It shows an astronaut standing in an alien bar. acidcow.com/pics/17659-games-102-pics.html

Hi everyone..!

So there's this pc game that's been stuck in my head for the past 5 years or so, and i've tried EVERYTHING to remember the name of it. It's killing me!!! (you all know that feeling right?!)

I played it in the mid 90's, 95-98ish, and you control a character who wears shades. You go around this basement like room collecting stuff/killing people/opening doors (not too sure) to try to pass the level.

And the weapons are upgradable.

I'm pretty sure its a co-op game as well, and it might have something to do with robbers/police.

Its 2D, kinda pixelated

If anyone has any ideas, it is appreciated :D Its KILLING my head.

Thanks in advance :D

in the mid 90's i used to play a game for hours..too bad i cant remember the name of it...

it was a 3D third person game where you flew an spaceship. i almost recall each mission would almost work like check points and you would rarely have to enter a new map. missions varied where you shot at other craft, ground vehicles, even destroyed buildings. the craft was black and the graphics where very decent for its time.. i used to play with a joystick and for somereason my brain keeps telling me it may have been developed by microsoft.... please help

tried to get help from my mom but all she can remember was that she paid 40 bucks for it and i was the best at it in my household...lol.. please someone help.

I played a game that was a Overhead Shooter, it was had something to do with a DNA lab and it was an 90's game for PC. The one thing I remeber is the opening credits for the game sounded like a variation of " Hey Man Nice Shot" And you kept moving through levels destroying security systems or something. Anyone remeber this games name.

I used to play a game for XBOX, where you were some kind of alien and you would run around this town to upbeat techno. That's all I remember.

Hey all i am really hoping someone could help its a really annoying thing playing a sweett ass game you cant remember. It is ps1 i played it on a demo your on a ship and its first person you walk around talkingto people, solving issues and your the go between guy and right at the end the ship is goingto crash and one guy dependent on how u play locks himself in the only room in the ship where you can survive or you can get in with him. Sorry for the terrible memory but i must of play this going on 12 13 years ago. Deffo ps1 but with all the demos i would never find it thanks

So I found this thread while typing in pathetically inadequate keywords into Google hoping to find a game I remember playing when I was ten.
I remember it being a fairly simple PC 2D platformer where the character had to get gold randomly strewn about the level (the entire stage was visible on the screen). The distinct things I remember about the game are that 1) the enemies were red-robed things that knocked you down and devoured you (in that creepy way that only low-resolution games can), and that 2) there was a suicide option to restart the level by typing 'k' (the character would fall down and use the same 'OMG MY INTESTINES' animation as when he was caught by a baddie).
I think I might remember teleportation as well, and maybe placing bombs but I'm not sure?
Anyways, I remember this game catapulting my interest in technology, so I really want to remember what it was. Any questions/tips/guesses/knowledge that anyone can provide? I know it's not much to go on. Thanks!

Some Beavis and Butthead game on my little sister's shitty PC that she inherited from my father. The aim of the game was to lean out of the window of a multi-storey apartment and spit on passing pedestrians and motorists.

Jbo:
theres this game i used to play i cant remember most of it though i think it started in like a cell pit and when the guard comes down you beat him up and escape after your gone you make your way home but as soon as you get ther your girlfriend is kidnapped i dont remember much more but i think you used like a little bouncey ball as a weapon anybody have any idea what it is thanks

That is for certain Little Big Adventure (LBA)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Big_Adventure

Ha, I found it! Turns out it was called 'Lode Runner: The Legend Returns'. Excellent game, I'm glad I rediscovered it.

There's been a game lurking in my memory for years that I would absolutely love to remember. I played it once at my cousin's house in Toronto when I was pretty young. I've searched everywhere, but for the life of me can't find any clues as to what it was called.

I remember it was a king's quest style game, and the most prominent memory I have is collecting fire berries or fire gems from inside or around a stream in a dark forest.

I've tried google numerous times, but have come up empty handed. If anyone is able to point me in the right direction, I would love you forever.

Hey all,

I am looking for help to hopeful maybe get the name of the game i played when i was younger about 10ish so about 1990-1997, i have tried in past to find it but with no luck.

Ok here are th details i remeber

1. It was on atari st
2. it was a text based game with i think limit graphics on some screen not all
3. it was Americanised ie the things you have to type where american version of words like i would say tap but it would want faucet

now the game details i remember

4. i think you started in your bedroom could be kitchen or livingroom
5. you would go west i think to i think livingroom or bedroom
6. you would then go north and be in hallway with a door to the north and the bathroom to the west
7 the door could be only opened with the command open sesame
8. in the bathroom you had to find i think a umbrella then tune on the faucet (taps) to get a object
9 after you go back to the hallway and go out the door your outside
to the north is a curtain and you had to use a certain command to get past the ghost i think the ghost was one of the few screens you got a image on
10 details are now sketch i think to the east there was some sort of sewer and it was dark and you could easily gt lost in it

Hy,
Like everyone here, i'm looking for a game. This is what I remember about it:
1. I played it in 1997-2000 on PC
2. The action took place on a planet (not earth)
3. You were a rover/buggy that can shoot, jump, had all sort of upgrades and weapons...
4. The ideea of the game was to destroy alien bases, the aliens were mostly some kind of giant spiders...
5. The colors were bright, a lot of light blue and light green..

Anyone...?
Thanks.

Hi!. I cant remember an old pc game, i think of the 90`s, where you where a buddy or a robot, i dont remeber well, except that when you dies(because of a creature/thing, one of the many creatures was a kangaroo thing like.), a cutscene appears where an island explodes and is destroyed.

Hey guys I'm looking for a single player PC game. It was about a man who killed monsters, collected money, bought stuff, then eventually went on to defeat the boss. I remember some of the best items you could get: speed boots and a fire bow that shot fire arrows. At some point there was a secret island of money you could walk to to get rich. Please tell me if you find it!

Mr Restrained:
There are these two old games which i cannot remember:
in one you were a red spider-like robot which could climb on walls, and i could never figure out the reason for the game.
the second one you were a stickfigure and the floor had cube tiles, and the tiles would move like a wave of water, and you had to evade it somehow, but i fogot everything else.
would be really helpful! thankyou

The second game sounds a lot like "Intelligent Qube", also known as "Kurushi" in Europe and Australia. It was a really cool puzzle/action game, and is still available. Have a look:

So after googling my random memories for the past hour I came across this thread, created a login and am now hoping like hell that someone on here can help me.

I used to play a game on either PS1 or PS2 a fair few years ago that had a female character (and possibly a male one too) who you controlled. It was a one player game and although I can't remember exactly the purpose of the game she would randomly come across two items and say things like "Look John a Lei seed" or "It's a Buddha"

Sorry for the really vague description but my friends and I randomly think of it every few months and none of us can remember what it was called. I would love to be able to track it down so I am hoping that someone out there knows what it is or can help

THANKS!!!!!

Hi pople, I'm new here.

The reason for my joining is about an old game that I can't remember the name of.

I don't remember a lot, because the last time I've played was 9 years ago...
Well, all I remember is a fighter (space fighter, future) that destroys all enemies and move to a new level, however, there are PLANETS to choose, like you choose the levels you wan't to proceed.
I remember a mission you were with some "wingmen" helping you.
I think the game was Arcade, but in 3D (Colony Wars for example).

The things I perfectly remember are the planet choices and the level with wingmen.

I'm sorry for the lack of informations, but thats all I remember. Plus I'm searching for that game for 2 years and I still can't remember it's name.

By the way, it was for PlayStation 1

V2000?

A flying mecha game for the Sega Genesis, that 2D flaying kind with a top down view like space invaders, but were you fly forward. I just remember it being really finicky as to when it would and wouldn't work on my grandma's Genesis...

I do believe you're talking about The Legend of Kyrandia! The puzzle involving the fireberries always drives me nuts, but it remains one of my favourite adventure games.

I have a forgotten game myself. It's for the PS1 and in 2D, and I'm pretty sure it's a random encounter type of jrpg. The only thing I can recall somewhat clearly is that at one point in the game there is a sea funeral where everyone watch from the shore as the casket(s) drift away into the open ocean. I think the person being mourned is the town leader, and the father of the girl in the party.
I also have these flashbacks about the game starting on a ship, and some sort of mine dungeon with carts and stuff. This might be another game altogether though (Alundra fits the bill perfectly, yet when I look at it it doesn't feel "right") so I guess the funeral is the only lead I have.
It's so vague, I'm almost starting to think it was all a dream or something.

You sir, are my new favorite person in the entire world. I recognized the name as SOON as I read it. I can't tell you how long I've been trying to remember what this game was called. The challenge now is to find a working copy, which shouldn't be too difficult.

I really wish I could help you with your game. I thought for a while before posting...the only JRPG i can remember clearly with ocean/water/ships and containing mine dungeons are Chrono Trigger and several of the Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quests. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Thanks so much! Super excited now.

naah, its not V2000 :S

I need help remembering the name of an older RTS game with 90s style graphics. The game-play was very basic. There were several pre-made campaigns where the player would try and conquer the computer AI. The player would do this by expanding from his original base and establishing hamlets/farms on empty terrain tiles. These would generate income based on the amount of farming space available to it on its surround 8 tiles. This income could then be used to hire more soldiers and build constructions like bridges and barricades.

Throughout the campaigns, the theme would change from map to map. On one map, the player would be a fast-food mogul in charge of moving fries and hamburgers establishing restaurants instead of farms. In another, the player would play as a mechanized queen ordering her robot drones. Some were Candyland-esque, some were Eastern in Style, and all maps had different terrain options and construction possibilities. However, they all stayed true to the central goal: expand your territory by establishing farms and fighting the AI spawn. The fighting was simple. Each unit was given strength by merging weaker units together. The stronger unit in a battle would simply walk through the weaker one, disbanding it. Once all the AI's units were defeated, or if the AI's base was overrun (the Commander of the group acts just as any other unit, save it had a much higher base strength), the AI was defeated. The game ended when all opponents were defeated.

Any thoughts?

jjjonesy27:
mine was for the ps1, it was an overhead shooter and you play as this marine, and you have to fight through hordes of zombies and mutants and such. i cant remember what its called

Just happy to help! I hope you find it just as great as you remember it to be.

As for me, I'm going to keep searching and pick up Alundra to see if stirs any memories. I don't have much experience with jrpgs in general, so it is quite possible that it's a fairly well-known game. I think I'll try to look up a list of jrpgs for PS1 and go from there. Thank you for your kind suggestions!

If anyone could help me that would be amazing, as i've been trying to remember the name of these two games for like 8 years.
The first: it was like a side-scroller type game where you picked up objects to use at that time or later in the game, i also remember the main character has a motorcyle and the two main things i remember were hiding in a barrel and climbing an extremely long ladder to a tower type thing. I also remember vaguely that this game came out around the same time as a secret of monkey island type game came out.

The Second: A fighting/RPG game that was either on NES, SNES or PC where there were like 4-8 characters you could choose from, and their portrait things where in a box like this / / / / / with each character being in one of those "slots".

Both of these games where out/came out in either the late 80's or 90's.

What genre is the game from? Strategy, adventure, etc.

I have something of a challenge. I'm pretty sure that the game is a floppy game from the 80s. I know it was definitely not late 90s onwards. All I remember about it was solving puzzles or mysteries. I think you gathered clues by visiting places, or calling people and asking them questions on the telephone or pay phone.

I need help!

I played a game when I was about 6(?) years old, or younger.. On a Windows 95/98(?).. I never got it, but have some memories from it, and some information I remember from last time searching the internet for it..

The game was on another planet. You play a guy. The enviroment reminds me about a valley, dessert, something. It's a monster-wolf like creature (BLACK!!) always moving/looking at you in the background. I always died, and did not get the story.

Last time I found it, I found out it had two names. And it had something to do with the guys car(?!) that got him there, and something about a lab, and to get home.. But I DO NOT REMEMBER D:

help.

I remember this one game. It was a demo on a disc. It was a real-time strategy game. It was based on the Mayans. The game played as this. You had workers. To get more workers you built houses then put them in the houses which created more workers. You then could convert the workers into other things such as soldiers or some sorta flame throwing soldiers. You could send them to build towers, walls, you know all the usual stuff.

You play the Ajaw (the leader) who appears to be some sort of high priestess or something. This is because you can send down bolts of lightning, create earthquakes, spawn volcanoes, and all other sort of elemental stuff. You gain these powers by worshipping statues that are semi hard to get to within the game.

Oh I also remember you could literally zoom so far out that all you see is the planet.

Never have been able to figure out the name of the game. I only played the demo, but always wanted to play the actual game.
