Hey guys,

Here goes nothing. I'm looking or some PC abandonware from the period of 1995-1990 (I remember playing this game back in '95). I cannot remember the name of this game and I have been searching around for it for a while. It would be nice to nostalgia hard once again.

Here is what I remember:
*It is reminiscent of a 2D pac-man style puzzle game.
- The player eats greenish blocks as he moves around the map
- you must solve puzzles to complete the map
- there are some green blocks that you must not eat because things will drop and kill you (typical puzzle style).
- I'm pretty sure the theme of the game was computerish parts but I cannot fully recollect

This description is very vague and I am sorry for that but if someone else remembers this game, I think Pac-man style gameplay with green blocks and computer parts should be enough to jog a memory.

Thank you for any help you can give me :)

Okay i got a Few more!

First game:

1)I played this game back in 2007.
2)It was a 3D 3rd person view.
3)The theme was Fairies.
4)You would go around a forest, And sometimes Villages, Fighting other Fairies.
5)When you fight the fairies, You could fly around some Pyramid formation as if i remember correctly.
6)This game had a 4 Letter name like, Aios or noxi, But it is not Nox if u wonder :].
7)I remember a scene where you were near a Windmill with water falling on it and spinning it.
-That's pretty much all i remember ;'[

Second Game i need:

1)Played in 2006-2007.
2)This game was in the desert somewhere.
3)you had this jeep With a Coaxial Machine gun on top.
4)The enemies were hiding in a bunker covered with leafage and Branches
5)When i think of this game i automatically think of the word Scorpion.
And thats all i know :]

Thank you guys!

I don't remember the name of the game. It is when i build their hut, houses and stuff like that then they come out of their homes and fight the others that look like them, accept that the enemies are darker and their in the dark side. They are tribes, and they look like Indians. Somebody tell me what it is called?

I'm trying to find a computer game I used to play when I was younger. I don't the goal of the game, I just remember there were a bunch of colored mice and it was one of my favorite games. I think it was like Mouse Trap, but I've searched everywhere and I can't find it. Any suggestions?

Two games, both of these were probably played about 10 years ago, and both were on computer, and I unfortunately don't remember much, though if I can find either of them I'd love it.

First:

The HUD was somewhat like Doom. It was something like a haunted mansion or castle that you were in (I think). You fought zombies, skeletons, and banshees and stuff. You're a kid and the more damage you took, the more "zombified" your portrait looked. Don't remember much else.:/

Second:

I can't remember much about the HUD but I think it was also like Doom. Sorta futuristic and you fought aliens, which spit snot or something like it at you.

I think both were kind of a first person shooter and strategic thing. I'll love you forever if you can help me

Sounds like Supaplex.

Man I got a few I think would give people a run for their money, but I got a few clues.

One game was on the old Macintosh computers back when I was 7 to 12 years old in elementary school. It would have been between 1997 to 2002. It was this marine fish game where there were four stages, and each stage you had to collect enough food to survive up to the next stage without getting eaten by the predators. And each stage made you higher on the food chain. There were tons of fish to choose from and try out. At the end, if you won, you would see this little cutscene of a shark going up to a ship in the distance and sinking it. It was a side-scroller game.

The other one is a shareware game that was like a breakout game. It was a trilogy that had many stages to it and each of them varied in quality. The other thing I remember was that the title started with the letter "B". I searched and Googled everywhere, and I can't find anything that rings a bell. It had really smooth music, with the third one being more of a puzzle game than a breakout game, with keys to gather with your ball and paddle. This game would have been around 1997 to 2002 as well. And on a Macintosh. Or maybe it started with an "R" and involved a "B" in the title.

I'm positive I played the first game at some point... can't remember though, sorry! Could sharks eat almost everything? I remember thinking it was funny that sharks ate sponges...

but that second one, It sounds a LOT like Bebop I-III. I loved those games! Sadly, I can't find them anywhere on the internet, and it seems they were lost to the sands of time.

I remembered that the sharks couldn't eat plankton. And I don't remember what exactly the main disadvantage of the shark was. I think it might have been that you needed to eat a lot more food.

And regarding Bebop. I'm glad someone has helped me remember it. So thank you very much. It's not even listed on the list of Macintosh games in Wikipedia. And that list has listed some of the games that were discussed here! There were even shareware games like Barrack and Realmz, that were on that list, but not Bebop? Holy cow. No wonder I've never been able to find it.

@Curlystraw

Nevermind! I found it! Gameshots of a game that I haven't seen in over a decade!

Shot in the dark here. An old first person shooter game from around the 1990's on PC. There aren't many things I remember exactly, but I remember that there were a lot of platforms that raised up and down slowly, and I also remember that when you died, it was extremely dramatic. The first level was also outside. Really vague, I know, but any help is appreciated.

I need some help here please: There are a couple of games which I would really love to get my hands back on.

The first is a game on the Sega Genesis. It was a first-person shooter which starts out by choosing one of...a few people. Each character has a special weapon but after that they can pick up and use every other weapon in the game...I think. I made it to some level or other where I was eventually insta-killed by something I couldn't see...maybe snipers.

Wait, Did you say Genesis, and FPS?

Genesis had very few true FPS games - one of them was Bloodshot/Battle Frenzy.

Is it possibly you're thinking of the on-rail part of Alien Storm, or something like that?

Okay guys (and girls, presumably): I remember an old arcade game that had a barbarian for a main character that began with an "R". You could swing from vines or jump up and point your sword down to reach a cave below. One of the monsters you fought was like a chimera that shot fireballs. I think another one was like a woman/witch or something. Any thoughts?

Yes!! That's it! You're amazing!

Okay. I can't remember much about this game. I played it in school in the early 2000's. It was an elementary PC game. I believe it was mostly about math, but I vaguely remember a metronome and a piano somewhere in there. I do remember it being sort of creepy, almost like a Halloween game. I remember clicking on a tower to go inside and there, you had to grow a certain amount of crops to make a potion or something. You had to figure out how many seeds to plant and how much water and sunlight to give to yield the correct number of fruit or whatever. And then I believe if you went through the woods, you found these three witches and you had to measure the correct ingredients for a potion... And there was a labyrinth, but I don't remember what was inside. And I know you had to beat a certain amount of the games to unlock the door to this house on a hill. Although, I don't remember what was inside. But every time to made it in, you ended up back outside and had to complete more games (they were the same games but harder than before) again. And I think as you completed the games, a jewel or something would light up on the door.. And it was always night time and it was pretty much storming the entire time.

And there was another pc game I played in school. It was a mansion, and the person who owned it was a cat. And every time you found all the clues, you would get a picture of that mansion in your hall.. I'm wanting to say it was "reading mansion" or something g like that.

old game, probably 90's that u choose between helicopter, car or a tank, u choose them in a base like screen ( helicopter on top right, car on the top left and tank in the bottom[something like that])and if u choose the tank at the beginning, if it gets destroyed u don't loose; u choose 1 of ur remaining vehicle until all are destroyed. it had multi-player and I used to play it with my brother on the same pc, as I recall we were against each other, there were towers near his base that kept attacking me and I think that there was some sort of ctf mission I'm supposed to do. it had a really big map and lots of stuff to do. I also remember that when u go deep in the sea a submarine comes out and destroys u.
anyone could help me out?

edit: the map was desert and it was 3rd person view like the camera is in the sky.

can someone please help me? :/

Was the marine fish game Odell Lake? I'm looking for my game and have come across something that looks like it could be it. I've never played it, but there's a screencap on this link that also tells of a sequel.

Hello!

I played this game on a PS2. It was a medieval co-op game. It was RPGish if I remember correctly. You had to beat levels with bosses, I remember a Scarecrow boss. I also remeber there were these 3 chests that if you opened the incorrect one, Death will appear. I think there were 3 classes to choose from, I only remember the archer one.

Hope you guys know something about it...

That sounds like a game in the Gauntlet series. I think there were a few different ones on the PS2.

I remember a SNES game involving fish that go up the food chain over time - EVO?

Can't think of anything similar on the PC though.

Don't think that's it. I Googled some screen shots and it's not like the game I'm thinking of. The game was entirely marine life in modern day.

That sounds like Return Fire. I've only played it briefly but looking it up again, it sounds like what you are describing.

Sounds like one of the Silkworm games, Swiv 3D from the camera description

i remember this one game that was imaginary. it was for nintendo 64 and the main character was a girl. all i remember was a girl who was dressed in pink and looked like a cat kind of that would walk/jump on two feet. can someone help me identify this game please?

It was around 2000 and i watched an interesting puzzle game on PC. It had a black background and you had to move some blue-ish kind of "pills" from one point to another. I remember that when you did something right or wrong, or passing through a obstacle it made a kind of electricity effect. The menu of the game looked like a mage with an electricity spell...hope this helps. And thank you very much for your effort guys.

It was 2d platform game, with option for 2 players for sure, maybe more than 2. The point of each level was to paint all windows on the high-rise's floor, so your character could run, jump and paint (one player=one color). There were few buildings, with bosses on the highest floors. After completing a level you were given statistics how many windows each of you have painted I think. I also remember bonus time rounds. Some guys wanted to kill you... can't recall anything more right now.
It would be great if anyone could help me.

i remember a racing game when i was little cant remember the name had some crazy cars u had to fight bosses and complete weird levels it was kinda like a puzzle game it had cartoon graphics

it was wild wheels

This one is not going to be easy, but as it's been many, MANY years ago, I wouldn't be surprised. I found Warlords, Spaceward Ho and Pushie, but one game I used to play eludes me.

It was a side-scroller platformer game, much like Mario. Like Mario it had fairly cutesy sound effects, but somewhat more advanced graphics. I remember three levels.
The first was a sort of Mario-esque level, with spike pits you had to jump over.
The second one is the most memorable. It was a train level, and you had to jump along pipes and uneven carriages on a moving train while avoiding these flying monsters that would swoop across the screen at you.It was the hardest of the three.
The third level was full of sandy yellow, I presumed it was a beach level.

To give you all the sort of timeframe/level of technology, I believe I played it on an Acorn computer that dated back to 1993, but I was about 11 or 12 at the time I played it, around the start of the millenia. A cookie to anyone who can tell me what it was.

Found the alien one - It was "Chex Quest". XD

Still need the second one, however...the game where you were the kid in a haunted castle/town/mansion (honestly can't remember which). Enemies were undead - zombies, skeletons, banshees. I remember one part you're in a giant square room, which you fight two of the banshees and it was actually quite hard. At least for a 6 year old kid. But yeah, if someone can help me with this...<3

Crivil:
Big challenge. PC game, not sure about release date, 2001-2004 branch mostly sure.

Isometric, Diablo like gameplay but you did use some kind of "explorer" Indiana Jones style with a rifle and a shotgun and some maps were Egypt-like ambient, with sand and pyramids and such. Did find it pretty enjoyable would love to rescue it hehe, ty in advance!

A lil bumb, just in case

I used to play a game on my Dad's old work PC must have been around 1995, but I beleive the game was MUCH olderthan that. No fancy graphics, just a grid of squares with a couple of walls and a door at either side of the map. You played as six or seven characters of the Aliens films...all symbolised as a square tile with an abbreviation of their name on it.
They went like so...

Ap = Sergant Al Apone
Cr = Private Crowe
Dr = Private Drake
Fr = Private Frost
Hi = Private Hicks
Hu = Private Hudson
Vq = Private Vasquez
Wi = Prvate Wierzbowski

The computer did have windows but the game was loaded up through DOS, It was based on the ALIENS series of films, but I can find no record of it, I'm not sure it was official.

It was top-down and turn based, and at the beginning you had to choose where to place your characters on the right hand side of the screen, and aliens would slowly appear from the door in the left of the screen.

The aim was to move your characters to the left-hand side and get through the door, killing aliens to progress.
I only ever got to the third room once. It was so damn hard.

You could only ever move the characters one or two spaces, or take a shot with your gun at an alien, then the aliens would move and if they got you it would say something like "Hudson is engaged in melee with an alien" and then he would have say one or two more turns before dying, and you could try and shoot the alien with another character.

Some times they would survive, and I think then they would be injured and another character could carry them.

Please please help and message me if you can!

i can't remember if it was on a playstation or playstation 2 but it was the between the years 2001-2006. you played a girl(long hair tied up) and im sure the title had something to do with portals. there were different places, one was a big room that looked like the inside of a spaceship, im sure you could jump of like ledges and fly down to the bottom. i cant even remember what you had to do in the game because i was about 8! but there was also levels in a forest, it was quite futuristic. does anyone have any idea what im talking about?!

so it was on the computer . in the 90's. it was daemons i think underground and you gained guys.and tunneled around. had kinda a ages of empires type play to it. trying to find gold and other things. and you got invaded by other underground daemon colones . when your tunnels got too close . and the cool part is you could become witch ever of your little guys you want and control them in a first person view. thats all i remember. no one i know has any clue what im talking about . does anyone here?

There's a game I've been trying to find for years and I've never managed to. I don't remember too much, so this might be a hard one, but maybe (hopefully) one of you out there will know what I'm talking about.

It was a PC game. It was 2D and each level was all in one screen (so, no side scrolling or anything). The graphics were pretty simple looking. Each level, if I remember correctly, had a bunch of platforms and ladders. On one of the platforms, there would be a door going to the next level. You were a little guy and you had to find your way to the door. And sometimes, (maybe if time was running out or something?), other little guys would come and chase you and if they caught you, you lost.

I only got to play it on my grandparents' computer, so I was never very well acquainted with it...hence me not remembering much. :/

OH! And another one!

There was another PC game...newer looking graphics than the platform one, and kind of cartoon-y... There was a little dog (black and white, I think) and he had a big red space ship or rocket or something. And I think there were a bunch of mini games or something like that. I remember so little of this one, but I used to play it all the time.

Edit: HOLY CRAP, I just found the first one! It's Lode Runner: The Legend Returns!

i dont remember the game but i do remember some parts its for the ps2 i think your a kid in some town and then the town disappears but you house is still there and you find a cave with a cat in it and the cat ends up changing in to a girl and you also find a guy with a hammer.

hey guys hope you guys could help me, it was a Mac game, PC game too maybe? idk, but it was a game where you are magicians (i think) and what you did was summon creatures to attack other magicians in the field, it was a box 2D game where you are stuck in it with either 1 other cpu magician or player or to 7-8 more npc magicians to play against, it was a console like game with pixel like graphics, i think it had a snake like name or something like that but im not sure, i tried to find it but no good
hope you guys can help
