Hello, not finding this game is killing me, been searching for 3 years now and i had enough.
i think it was in the 90s, i don't remember which console but i think it was pc.

You start of in front of and old mans house and you play 3-4 kids and supposed to break into his house and steal stuff, remembering this game was so hard, when you first entered his house and went into the kitchen and steal some food from the fridge, and then you see the old man waking up and going down stair, you had to hide, otherwise he'd lock you up in his personal jail, and it was possible to break out by clicking on a specific brick on the wall.

i can't remember the purpose of the game other than stealing stuff?

Maniac Mansion

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maniac_Mansion

So, there is this game that has been on my mind for a LONG time and no matter what I type in, I can never find it! I remember that it was an XBOX game and I played it probably in 2000 but definitely before 2007 and no later than 2000. I remember that you play as this tiny guy with purple or perhaps purplish colored short but spiky hair. I think he might have had some type of claw thing as one of his hands or that he always held in his hand. He also fought these weird looking monster things.

At one point of the game you are in like a normal sized person house and you can find ways to get onto the piano and do stuff or go up to the ceiling fan and do stuff but, the one thing that sticks out most in my memory is when you climb onto a table, I think, hop onto the couch, jump on the power button on the remote to turn the tv on in front of you and then you use your tiny man character to play a pong game.

I would really love it if someone could help me figure out the name of this game!! Thanks in advance.

Hello there, I really hope someone can help me out in finding a pc game i used to play in 2001. I think it was included with the pc i bought, it had windows98 or 2000. The game was about robots, you could make tanks, robots, towers that would shoot lasers to anyone near it, and also you would have to get petroleum from the ground to make all of this, also the towers would get connected and form a shield around the area. Please someone help

Thanks a lot Mate!!!!!

Hello everyone, i've been trying to remember the name of this game for a while now. I played it sometime in the early 2000's. It was a 2D PC game and the only things i remember about it are: you are a man (who looks somewhat like a mountain climber)and are on a quest. You can go into a cave and also into a store where there is a scale and you must weigh gold equally. There is a girl with a green dress in the store. All these things result in you receiving gems. I know you can also switch your tools, and the only one I remember is a pick-axe and POSSIBLY an arrow. That's all I remember, but hopefully you guys can help me out :) Thanks in advanced !

Ok so there was this game where you commanded a space fleet. I can't remeber what the objective was, but you would command different kinds of ships: corvettes, carriers, dreadnoughts and more.
The dreadnoght could carry a heavy ion beam or particle cannon. To attack, you would move the ships in range to the enemies and the would automatically attack. For example, if you moved the carrier near an enemy ship, small white fighters would emerge and attack the enemy ship.

As far as I remeber, the game was 2D and the ships very simple. I think there were also planets or asteroids you had to harvest resources from to build and upgrade your ships and weapons.
Everything was a dark blueish hue.

Any hints??

I need a lot of help with this one.
Its a game I played from 2005-2008 but im pretty sure its older. The game is 2d and the music is adventurey and a bit serious. There was a civilization you built using lumberjack looking men that grunted when you gave them an order like mining or woodcutting. They built a simple wood like town and depending on how many resources you had and where you were on a randomly generated map you could build a ship and maybe a castle. You could also unlock wizards and other powerful people. It was an offline game and the point was to build a civilization and defeat the computer(or other civilization). Its a lot like age of empires or total war or empire earth but I only played in one time period/fantasy realm.
This has been racking my brain for what seems like forever! I hope I can remember it and ANY HELP would be appreciated! I will love forever ANYONE who can get the name for this game.
PS It was played on a pc that could have been Windows 98 or XP I really cant remember the pc.

sounds a hell of a lot of like Warcraft, but I guess one would know Warcraft with all the WoW and DotA talk around...

Im also looking for 2 other games

1st - Is a snake game where you go throught mazes collect balls i think but as soon as you collect all of them you advance to the next level, later levels required a lot of thought

2nd - an isometric game where you're on a island alone and you have to gather materials to build a shelter, later you can have a tree house so animals won't attack you at night, the game title was something like ShiftheBranch or something similliar

@2nd

Ricardo Mendes:
Hey guys! I've been trying to remember an pc oldie, an RPG. I used to play this with my sister, like 12-15 years ago, and it wasn't mine, it was a loan from a friend. Anyway, all i remember was that you could choose your class (warrior, wizard, rouge i think...) and you'd start allways in the same place, then proceed to the next area slashing and zappin' everything in your way. It was isometric, much like neverwinter nigths. 'cept you only had 1 character (at least in the first 2 areas, i never got past that :p). Another thing i remember, you had a miniature of your character in the bottom center of the screen, and it'd reflect what you were wearing. I remember that 'cuz i'd get some laugths off gettin' my characters in their underwear and see them running around. I'd really love to remember the name of the game, i've been trying to remember since 6-7 years ago :s

Hey, so i've spent some more nigths lookin' for this bad boy, and i found out a game similar to what i remember, althou i somewhat remember it being with better graphics, and the HUD wasn't like this

http://www.mobygames.com/images/shots/l/13513-rage-of-mages-windows-screenshot-walkings.jpg

Also you could see (i think) a portrait of the full body of your character, like in hexplore, and it'd reflect your armour or weapons

http://image.gamespotcdn.net/gamespot/images/screenshots/4/69334/hexplore_screen001.jpg

Would really LOVE for someone to find my game... i swear, it's been like 10 years of searching, nigth after nigth, every goddamn time i remember it. :p

i'm trying to find a game i played in the 90's. it was arcade and there was this blue character. it was a bit fairy tale-ish. in one part there were flowers on springs that you jumped on and as you did that they would bend so you had to jump on the next one quickly. there was a spooky grave yard part with zombies, one part had wind mills, one part was on a ship with skeletons and pirates.. i think there were wooden boxes you had to jump on twice to break them and you killed the bad guys the same way. i think sometimes you also had a sword and i think every now and then a wise guy or a wizard, i'm not sure, appeared to give you advice. i know this is not much information, but if anyone knows what game i'm talking bout???

Hi all!

I'm looking for a war game, a war simulator I played 8 years ago but it's probably older. It was a windows game, you played in a small window where you starting choosing a country. Then you could see a map with the form of a square and each country own a part of the square, you could assign your resources to 6 fields: agriculture, investigation research, demography, techonology, military and economy. It's a turn based game and you could see everytime statistic of your economy, military level etc as well as you can see your enemies statistics. I think you could also buy and hearvest grain...

It was a war game, you could attack other countrys and depending on your military level, techonology, the number of your army you could win a part of the map.

No graphics, only a map, menus and numbers.

Could you help me??

Thanks!

Hi people, my name is Ramiro and im from Uruguay. First, sorry about my english and if I write some errors.

I'm looking for a game I played when I was 5 years. The only things I can remember is:

1) looks like diablo, the camera.
2) I remember at the beginning of the game, you can kill a woman in a pier. But if you kill her, a god appears and kill you.
3)It was approximately in 1994, in DOS.

That's all I remember.

Hi all, hope this isn't old ground, but I'm after 2 games:

1 I'm sure was called Astro (or similar) and you played a guy who looked a bit like robocop and went around a space ship shooting robots, would've been around the early - mid 90s on computer.

2 is a game, I'm sure the idea was to fly and shoot different planes e.t.c and each level was essentially a corridor in the desert (outside, but with invisible walls) and ended with a giant snake/viper/cobra that you had to defeat. (No idea on the name, sorry) Same sort of time period again.

Thanks!

Thanks. At first I thought it was WOW but apparently theres no offline version to the game. I don't remember having to log into a server to play and there wasn't any building of the characters or anything. Wish I could find which version if it was warcraft.

Actually I just searched and found that theres a version played against the computer. Found it! Thanks for all the help!

1994? It sounds like Ultima 8: Pagan.

Hi there im looking for a game it was a PC game for round about 98,99. It was an adventure type game. It started out fairytale like and got a bit darker later. It had a scarecrow, farm animals and two crazy farmers. what i do remember is a domematrix milking a tied up cow....I think the main character was a rabbit. But im not sure....

Thank you

This is an amazing thread! I have one game I've been wanting to seek out for a long time.

The game I'm looking for is a 2D fighter. However, you control what looks like a normal dog and cat but through some combo you can turn them into robots, firing missiles and what-not. I would have played it 12-14 years ago on the PC. The graphics were cartoony.

Thank you a lot

Heya.

I'm looking for this old PS1 game. I found some hits when googeling, which led me to this forum thread, but now I've been all the posts through and I cannot find it, so sorry if this is a "repost".

You play as a little green dragon, which is trying to free it's little friends, which looked something like little hairballs. You had to run around and collect some gems and kill enemies. When attacking enemies, the dragon would spin so as to hit them with it's tail, and every time it did so, it said things like SHAZAAMMM! and stuff like that.

I'd be very happy if you could tell me the name of this game.

Hey

This was an old PC game, been bugging me for awhile now.

Standard RTS game, except everything was in space/spaceships etc. All the building happened in rings around different planets which had various different ratings for the resources on each. There was kinda like a multiple map thing, where you could leave your galaxy? and go to other ones which all resided on a big map. Pretty much all I remember about it really. Just been bugging me, thanks for the help!

What you're looking for is Croc an awesome game, there is even a sequel to it.

It was an RTS. Played it in the late 90's. Can't remember many details but one - there was literal pig iron, as in iron ingots coming out of the smelter with pig's feet sticking out

I'm looking for a 2d 90s shooter. You had to shoot your way through rooms and portals connecting them to collect keys to unlock these energy barriers. Top down view with black background. Other colour was either green or white. Enemy ships would fly around the rooms in fixed patterns.

i am for years trying to know what this game is i re-looked all my cds and nothing oh well please help me youre my only chance to get this awesome game that was in a demo i played long ago. Here are the details:

-the title was like extermination or anihilation i dont remenber but it ended in "ation"
-Pc space strategy game maybe around 2002-2005 the graphics were good but very 2d
-i think i remenber the main menu and the levels were planets maybe around 10 or some more not like 18 and i saw a human soldier and an alien as a poster of the game or something

»the first level was a circular spaceship hovering over desert like terrain:
i had to build a green colony or something whose measure of capacity was of 1000's
the aliens that would invade at that first level fired some lasers not in one only direction against the same target

»the second planet was dark and i could built flying units and the demo ended when i went to the 3rd planet

Actually I thought of Warcraft I or II ;)

The game is an RTS ( I think) in an isometric view where you controlled goblins or something. I don't remember what the objective was but you were underground and you moved by mining down the walls and stuff. You could make a base but there would always be these archers around some sort of burning stone somewhere on the map that would just wreck you're shit if you found it.

Dungeon Keeper probably?

I'm also looking for a game I can't remember the name.

It's from the mid to late 90s for Windows PCs and had 3D graphics. You played a spaceship and your goal was to defend the earth from alien spaceships and asteroids. The earth was in the center of the screen and you were only able to rotate your ship around the earth with the left/right arrow key. The scales were very odd, your spaceship was about half the size of the earth.
Asteroids appeared on the screen and you had to shoot them with your laser weapons. There were also power ups which could upgrade your weapons. If the asteroids would hit the earth, huge chunks of the earth would fall apart and after a few asteroid hits the game would be over.
In later levels there were also alien spaceships which couldn't destroy the earth, but they could destroy your ship with their laser weapons. I remember, there were UFO-type spaceships (like this: http://blog.nz-online.de/peltner/files/2012/06/UFO-Meldestelle.jpg) and also types which looked like aircraft carrier IIRC. The more damage a alien spaceship took, the more it went into a spin and could hardly hit you anymore.
The level was over once you've destroyed all asteroids and all aliens. Enemies which you missed and passed earth, would re-appear after some time on the other side of the screen.

I've only played a shareware version of this game back in the late 90s and now I would like to find the full version.

Hey, i was wondering if you could help here :)

So this was an online "game"

I don't remember if this was a university's experiment, or something like that.

It was a webpage, almost fully black, no ads.

It had 4 colors: red green blue yellow (probably not in this order)

People from around the world could join in, but the "game" only said that XXXX connected from a specific city. There were no names, no comminication via chat, just the city and your color.

4 color 4 player, there was a timer, and you had to work together, and everyone had to solve their "puzzle"

You could see the others little box and what are they doing, and you could use your mouse to help them, like pointing out the solution or showing the correct thing.

I don't remember the name, and i tried googleing it for an hour now, and i bumped into this site :)

The purpose of the site was to encourage teamwork or well to have people depend on each other. It was really addictive, i don't remember when did i play it, it was 2-3 years ago perhaps, but its sure that it was AFTER 2004.

I'd be thrilled to play it again if the site is still online.
