miniruss:
I have 2 games. Both are quite vague as its been a really long time since I've played them.

The first: You were a doctor(I think at least) and you crash landed on a planet. You're ship was broken so you went out to find parts for it. It was an adventure based game with puzzle elements in it. You would walk around, solve puzzles, if you failed you would get hurt and you couldn't die. Platform was Windows, probably mid 90's.

The second:You were a little wizard and you did quests and stuff and you could upgrade your wand. This one is really vague I know. Again it was Windows, mid 90's probably.

Both ran on a Windows 98 OS. Thank you.

Did you ever find out the name of the space ship adventure game? That sounds really familiar to the exact one I've been trying to look for, for years now.

Did it ever have a part in the game, where you have to walk through a multi-colored flower patch, and if you stepped on the wrong color you'd be tossed back to the start by a giant alien flower? There's also another part where you had these little green, bug/gremlin looking things, come at you in this deserted village area, I don't quite remember if they hurt you, or if they just annoyed you. That's all I remember from the game though...

I need some help y'all. This game was from the early 90's, I remember playing in 93. It was a space combat sim and it was Arcade only and I played it at Pier 39 in San Francisco. All I remember was that up to 6 people could play co-op on one GIANT screen and the players were all in a dark room with curtains blocking the entry/exits. It reminded me of a bunch if x-wings attacking a star destroyer. Any help would be awesome. Thanks

Help me out here, guys. I'm looking for 2 different games. One from the late 80's and one from the mid 90's.

The game from the 90's is one I'd really like to play again. It was the first multi-player online FPS's I ever played. I played it on AOL and it was pay-to-play. If I remember correctly every one in the game was a caster with different magic abilities (lightning, fire, ice). I can't remember the name of it, but I really want to say it had something to do with MAGE. I loved this game and wish I could find it again.

The 80's game was played on an old Apple computer. I think it was called Mr. Fix-it. The basic idea was to take pipes of all different shapes, springs, walls, and other parts, put them in place so that when you dropped the ball, it reached it's goal.

Any ideas???

Hi! I'm looking for a game I play a few years ago (let's say 10 years ago aprox). It was a third-person about a kind of kinght arriving to an island. Has some adventure things, plataform, and action. I remember that under the ship you reach the island, was a Ron Bottle. I Also remember you count with a hand-crossbow and it turned to first-person view when you shot with it. Sorry for my english, I'm from Argentina.

Thanks in advance!

Anyone? I'm looking for this game too...

I'm looking for a game I used to play in the early-mid 90s on the PC, I don't remember the name obviously but it was a kind of fantasy FPS exploring a haunted house or something with zombies, mummies and witches, that kind of thing.
Used to give me nightmares apparently cause it was fairly scary, but I don't remember the name, can anyone help?

Hi! I recently remembered a game I played about 10-12 years ago. It was a text-based adventure game :) the main character was a girl, waking up on a seashore and not remembering anything about her past. She sets off on a path through a forest and finally reaches a hut or something similar. She has to start a fire, and do all kinds of things in and around the hut to finally discover who she is. There is a kind of optional storyline involving a sick animal she finds under a bush. The animal is sick because it ate some poisonous plants, and the main character is able to cure it with some concoction she prepares. I remember I enjoyed the story very much, even if at first I was very skeptical about text-based games. I hope someone recognizes the game, because it would be fun to revisit it! Thanks!

2 (dinosaurs I think, cartoonish)
1 was violet and another was green.
They have hammers.

The stages mostly goes up.
You need to follow along.
Fail to do so and your characters die.

To kill enemy you need to smash the floor,
the enemies run into it, get stuck,
and then you smash their heads.

The floors are like lines of boxes from one end to the other.
Then it has ladder leading to the floor (lines of boxes above).

I'm pretty sure it was on Sega Genesis. If not maybe SNES.

HELP! FAV GAME!

Hi! I really need help finding the name of a game i played a couple of years ago (ps2 game i think)!

Its about a boy who is searching for his mother, the demo-release was a couple of years ago and if you died you had to start over again. I remember that you where in a town at first, but after playing a bit you hoped on a train and it took you to the forest. I think the name has "Heaven" in it or something. pleaase helP!

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...

Forsaken?

Looks similar, but unfortunately not it. There was a official-kind-of-looking race, and not inside a spaceship, but on various tracks, and not kinda space motorcycles, buat more like small spaceships... Thanks for trying to help me, though, very much appreciated!

I remember this game your talking about.. it was one of the early games I remember playing on LAN. I want to say the name was something similair to poison...sorry I can't remember exactly.

Ok so theres a pre 2000 pc game im looking for, its a mech style game, not mechwarrior, not mech commander, not earth 2150, not starcraft, but along those lines, ive been looking for ages, i remember one part you genetically enhance pilots, not much help but maybe if someone can name drop a few i can look them up? pretty sure it was only a 1-disc game, around the time of age of empires i think

Ok if it was a turn based strategy game it sounds like Missionforce: Cyberstorm where all your pilots are genetically engineered.

Note the freaky looking pilot in the screenshot:

Fun Fact: This was a spin off of Starsiege, the mech series that eventually spawned the multiplayer FPS Tribes.

Alright, I've got a game that was on one of the numerous 101 games for windows 95 CDs.

It's a top-down scrolling space shooter, and you travel through a (the?) galaxy, towards the sun as the final level.

The name may have started with S, had 1 or 2 words, and I vaguely remember DX or XS or X-something as part of it too.

Anyone have any clue?

Please help me with this. I am trying to remember the names of two games. The first one is a priority.

1. I remember playing this game on a PC in or around the year 2000. It was a piloting game with a futuristic setting. You were the pilot of some sort of VTOL craft and the map was medium size. You could shoot at cars and enemies but also do some maneuvering tests. You could change the views from cockpit to outside etc. I remember in the center of the map there was a big round road protected by a wall with plenty of cars on it. The whole theme of the game was pretty dark and it was always night. The floors and the walls were all made of big grey panels. That is all I can remember.

2. I cannot remember much about this one. It was a racing game. You raced little trucks and 4x4s through canyons. I also played it in or around 2000. Honestly this is all I can remember.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance because I've been trying to track these games down for a pretty long time :) .

Hello,
Umm, I remember this game I played (it was on Windows) at my older cousin's house this one time when I was really young, I have no idea when it was although I do know it's definately between 1999-2005 for a fact. The only thing I remember from the game is that it was a first person RPG/Adventure type of game had those old graphics similar to (Maybe slightly better than) Elder Scrolls II Daggerfall, it was open world I believe, if you attacked a friendly villager or guard or whatever, then the whole village would try to kill you, there were swords bows and magic and the last thing I remember is that when you enter this portal or something, then you would end up in an area full of dragons and I died nearly instantly with their fire attacks. I barely played that game for a while and I only have a few glimpses of it, can anyone tell me which game it is? Does anyone recognize it?
I really hope you can help, thanks :)

There was a game for dreamcast (I believe) about fighters who collected crystals (or jewels) and if memory serves me right you either won the game or powered up. I used to play crazy taxi on this so I think it was dreamcast definitely. I would appreciate if anyone remembers the name of the game. Thank you in advance.

I've been putting a lot of thought into the AOL game. It was similar to the game Heretic, but multi-player. Also, I believe you could have 3 different teams per match.

FlyAwayAutumn:
Well I remember all my games mostly because I still have them so I can look on that rack right behind me and see what I forgot.

I can not for the life of me remember this one japanese movie though, it was about these kids who had to kill eachother on an island so that they could survive.

Battle Royale. It's on Netflix, and one of my absolutely favorite movies of all time.

I remember playing a game on DOS back in high school. It was an rpg, but all I can remember is going from town to town. In between going place to place, you rode a horse jumping over fences and hay bales to get to the town. Once you got to the town you also had the option to go underneath into the sewer. Another thing also that might help is you could fight in the town's Gladiator Pit against monster's. The more monster's you defeated, the higher the creature rank. Any help would be appreciated on this.

Anyone know the name of this game?

I'm gonna guess Might and Magic 6: The Mandate of Heaven.

I have been looking for a game i played on the pc in the 2002- 2004 on time frame it was a multiplayer turn based artillery game based in space you could get better and better weapons and you shot planet to planet with gravity affecting your shot

Was it 2d?
I 'm not sure what you mean by "space", but "Scorched Earth" featured some celestial backgrounds, and various terrains that might be described as various planets...

Still haven't found the game I'm looking for, so I'm trying again: I don't know if it was a download-file or a CD, but it was on Windows 95. You played as a little red creature with big yellow eyes (When I played it, it always reminded me of those momeraths from "Alice in Wonderland": http://www.alice-in-wonderland.net/alicepic/disney-movie/momeraths-2.jpg )... I think that creature wore a light blue hat / cap; similar to a nightcap, I think... That creature had to pass an easy maze-like level and collect some things (for extra points...but I don't even remember what those things were) on the way to the goal. It was 2D and rather comic style-ish. Yeah, that's it.... As I said, not much information at all, but I hope someone here knows what I'm talking about (-;

Hi! I remember playing a pc game, probably on windows 95, where you had to take care of plants. Water them, look aftter them. All the plants had faces, could sing or say something in English. Time period probably('93-'99)I was around 6 when I firs played it.You had 3 different gardens, and in every area you had some interactive animation, in one place if you clicked the river you saw a canoeing guy being chased by a shark. You had a marketplace where you could sell your grown things. You even had a timer thing which you could set on turtle mode or rabbit mode depending on your time you had for playing the game. I really would like to find out the name of the game, and have some nostalgic moment with it. Thanks for the help in advance

there was this pc game where you played as a boy walking on a mountain cliff or something and creepy shadows come after you and hug you and you have to shake them away..you then get a gun to kill them but they are sooo many..at one point you get seeds that you can grow into trees to use to climb and at another part where you walk next to a wall with holes and sometimes ugly worms come out and snatch you...what 's it called????????????

Hi. I'm looking for a game, and have been looking for days, that I played in the early 2000's. What I remember from the game is that it was on an old desktop computer, and it involved a little car (maybe blue) and you had to jump over little red (or purple) little bricks or bubbles. I can't remember the name of the game for my life and I really want to find it again. Thanks for your help.

Saw my friend play this around 97. You're flying in this spaceship when you get kidnapped by a super being that can travel back and forth through time who wants you to build a weapon for him to defeat someone. The problem is, the weapon doesn't exist, and the people who can build it don't exist either. You create three alien races, helping them at key periods of their development inorder to advance them enough to provide components to build them weapon. Any ideas?

I know if anyone can help me find this game, you guys can. It was for either Windows 3.1, Windows 95 or 98. Bare with me, I don't have a lot of details.

It was a Missile Command variant. In between levels, there was a shop where you could buy upgrades, and when you bought something, it used an unlicensed clip of Ned Flanders saying "Okely-dokely-doo!". There was also an intermittent mini-game where you played as a mushroom and had to grab falling money.

Please, I hope someone remembers this.

I really hope you guys can help, I've been looking all over for this game.
I don't have that much info though, I know it was a first person game most of the time. You could play various games within the game, I remember there being racing, labyrinths and lots of other games I think. I played this game on a Windows 95 if I'm correct, and I had to use one of those old fashioned disks. It was probably from around the 90's. The game also had a dark background and you could of course choose between the games you wanted to play.

EDIT: It was played on a floppy disk!

Heart of Darkness?

Hi! So, I've been looking wondering about and looking for a game for years, it's a game I played with my best friend when we were kids. He doesn't remember it's name either so I thought I'd ask here. Unfortunately I don't have much to tell about it since it happened a long time ago and i was just a little kid enjoying a game anyway:

It was a PS or PS2 game (PS2 I think) probably 5-10 years old now. In it you controlled one of two (might have been three) human, or very humanlike characters, it was somekind of rpg/adventure game, happened in a city, very gray and gloomy. There were some kind of fights in the game, and then you were able to buy new special moves such as different kicks and punches and stuff for your character. I remember one fighting scene being somekind of a bar, or otherwise pretty open room (still gloomy and not very colorful), and another one in the pretty early stages being in or near a tram or something like that.

Dunno if it's possible to find the game with such bad help but I'm hoping for the best!

I've been trying to remember this game for about 9 years now.
Can't quite say if it was sega or sega genesis. >.>

This is kind of vague but i appreciate all input.

Side scroller
Little blue wizard, like really small, kind of like the old blue mage from FF but with a hood and more sprity. i think you can see some gray/white beard.
pretty much a platformer, jump around collect potions and if memory serves me correctly you would shoot fireballs at monsters from a staff.
I think it was two player. THINK.
Man this is really vague i really appreciate any and all input.
My memory is butt lol.

Thank you!

Sounds like Hillsfar a kind of RPG lite using the D'n'D rules. It was by SSI who did the more hardcore "Goldbox" D'n'D games.

Here are some screenshots:

It's the horse riding bit that gave it away:
