Alright, so around 2000(?)I played a medieval fantasty game that had a birds eye view and was a hack n slash on my dell laptop. i think it came as a package with several games or maybe on a disk with a lot of games on it. i don't know for sure. There were three character classes: The mage, archer, and knight. i just remember it being rather pixelated because of the terrible graphics. despite the lack of graphical beauty there was still a lot of blood. i keep wanting to call it Arcane or something like that but i searched everthing similar to that and i didn't find anything. This is bugging the ever living hell out of me, any ideas would be much appreciated!! It is not mageslayer or gauntlet or druid. it seems similar to gauntlet from what i saw but it wasn't it. thanks in advance!

Hi people,
This is a ms-dos game. In this game you own a boat, which can transport material from one seaport to another. If you complete this task, you then earn money that you can use to improve your boat conditions. If you don't improve your boat conditions often enough, it will drown. I don't remember whether you can or not have more than one boat at the same time. The game is very primitive, but quite interesting. Thank you in advance.

Manata938:
Round 2! An old PC game from the mid-nineties. You are a ship that flies around through a cave in at least one level. There's lava and enemy ships (the red ones shoot spread-shots I think) and keys and power-ups. There's also an annoying green ship that can steal your power-ups. Please, if anyone can help me, I'd really appreciate it.

That sounds like part of the "Descent" series

Hello all,
In 2005 I've played a FPS game on PC. You are an American captured in a German castle and have to escape. And no, it isn't return to castle Wolfenstein :P. There are no monsters in this game, you only fight Germans.

Game begins in your prison cell. Guard is coming in, and you are holding to some pipes on the ceiling. When he is below you, you jump onto him and kill him with a knife. Ending of the game is when you escape the castle by cable railway.

I've searched a LOT on the internet, but didn't find anything. I don't know if this helps, but i know in first few levels, at the loading screen the castle is shown from outside. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your response, but it isn't that game. This game has a LOT better graphics. It looks more like 'Return to castle Wolfenstein'. My friend that played it, when i asked him a few days ago about that game, he said the name was 'Castle Wolfenstein' but he wasn't sure. I've looked but nothing.

Hello everyone!
There has been this game that has been stuck in the back of my head for ages now. It's a Playstation 1 game and a RPG, I'm pretty sure. From what I remember (or think I remember) the game had a 3d look, like final fantasy 7 except it was really dark and very misty/foggy.
I think the first half of what I played was all grey like and I'm pretty sure (i could be wrong here) it was set olden times in a fantasy setting. I just remember this unnerving feeling when I played it. It didn't have the look of most of the colourful rpg's out there at the time. I just remember it looking grim and dark. Thank you!

Are you sure it was an RPG? Because it sounds a lot like Silent Hill. Being incredibly foggy and such.

First thing came to mind was Vagrant Story:

There's a crap load of RPGs from that era though. Can you remember anything about the combat? Action/Turn-based? Controls?

Legend of Dragoon is pretty much the go to suggestion for 'JRPG like Final Fantasy'.

Thank you to all the helpful responses but none of the games seem like it. It did feel very jrpg I'm [pretty sure. Sorry this is like around 10 years ago I played this game last. All I remember is when running around, it looked like the characters from final fantasy 7 when walking around, very ball like and rather opposite to Vagrant. And I remember this scene where there was a village full of people once, then when I returned from whatever i was doing, it was completely empty and I had to go into this cave?? Very blurry memory but I am really sorry I can't think of anymore information. thank you again though

I know this is a long shot. But does anyone remember a late 90's early 2000's PC game where you are controlling this little ball, that I think is blue and has a face on it. You have to go through this maze and get keys and change the balls color to move on to the next level. Like i said this is a long shot, so anything would be helpful.

Hello everyone!
There's an adventure PC game that has been stuck in my head for ages (can't remember but i guess it was around 90s to 00s)

It's start with three magic knights with three difference colors of dress; red, blue, yellow in front of a small house in a small european old village. The red knight has the most life point out of three (the life point has been shown as the light; if the player can kill more ones the life point will be increased and the light will be brighter). The yellow knight has the least life point at first but he has the most magic skill (when the player give him a magic scroll to read, he will be able to use that magic). The blue knight is in the middle in both life point and magic skill.

we can conduct all three of them to fight/kill villagers in the village; thief, barbarian, orc in the forest; skeletons in the castle; trolls in the cave; witch and many more...

The weapons in this game are sword, hammer, knife, bow, or even fist. There were many shields also; shield, panoply, necklace, ring, boots, etc. These kind of things can be used to increase attack and defend points also, some of them can be used to defend some kind of magic.

Other items are food or fruits (used for increasing life point), potion (used for increasing life point, magic skill, and toxic also), scrolls (used for adding new magic skill), money, keys, etc.

Some of these items including weapons and shields can be bought at the shops, stolen from someone(when you kill them), or collect from somewhere else.

You can pay for horse carriage to take you to other villages or open the city gate and walk/run through the forest. There are many river, cave, castle, ancient monument and so on. I'm not so sure at the moment what is the goal of this game but it just fun and unstopable

I think the keywords of this game are "magic, wizard, knights, adventure" or something like this. I tried to search on google but it only show Might and Magic Heroes which is wrong one :(

Can anyone help me to find out what is the name of this game, please?
Thank you so much for your willing to help!!

hi. im trying to find out a game. in the game, i think you play as a tank robot. the first mission i remember is youre on a desert land. i dont remember much but while youre going through it you are carrying some boulders i think and tossing it at one of the enemies. i think you get gems or diamonds for rewards for it. the game looks animated. i remember the first boss in this mission you fight a guy with a one part sided hair (long hair) and you can only see one side of his face. after this mission i remember you get to pick the next mission. i remember one mission you play puzzle games, moving boxes trying to get to a destination. i dont remember much but please help and tell me if one of you knows the game. please message me or just post here ill keep looking back for a response. the game is animated so i think its like a japanese game. played it in the 90's when i was a kid with ps1. thanks.

That sounds extremely similar to Faery Tale Adventure 2: The Halls of the Dead.

no thats not it unfortunately. it was a like action car game with guns on the car and it wasnt like a raceing game to say exactly like a race track. you crossed bridges and there was a helicopter. im trying to find this for my dad and he cant remember it that well. all i keep getting is there was a desert a bridge,helicopter,guns,explosives,it was a horizontal veiw not vertical and it wasnt a motercycle. ive gone through a huge list of games myself with endless search and still cant seem to find.

I remember a game where you play a sort-of "punk" guy with red or green hair, sunglasses and a kind of "stoned" expression/smile on his face. It was an escape-the-room game where you were locked in a dirty studio apartment with a security guard outside the door. It was a PC game with 3D graphics, and possibly came out around late 90s/early 00s. I also seem to remember the title being along the lines of "toxic". If anyone can tell me what it is, I will love you. Been searching for years.

courtneyxx:

Okay y'all, I've been looking for this game for years.
It's a 3rd person shooter/adventure type game where you're a white robot/suit of armor that floats. As I recall, it's 3D.
You shoot these crab-like enemies and in one level, you're in a sort of ice canyon and in another level you're in some sort of spaceship.
As I recall, the title of the game is three words with a colon in between two of the words and the words aren't things that a 7 year old would know.
It's also a flash game. No downloading or anything.
Any help would be amazing.

There was an RPG PC game where you had cards that were monsters that you played against the monsters you found in the world. It turn based. One card I remember was a queen bee that could spawn other bees. You wandered around revealing the "fog of war" in the isometric top from an angel view, until battle where you saw zoomed into the battle field with your cards displayed on the bottom and could select what one to play to have it replace from your deck.. you could find places to trade your cards in and could buy new ones. Since I never finished it I do not know if the end goal was to kill off the opponent Dragons (the hardest enemy avatars) but I think that was it. you were asked to go on quests and were given cards or coin after you completed the mission.

It also seems to me it looked like the cities you encountered were more like walls with gates that you could enter from one place then once you'd done your quests, leaving and returning to the city from the same entrance, you could finaly leave from the other exit.

Found it! It was Etherlords :)

I am looking for a really old 2D PC game. You are a man with a sword. Durring the game there is a well that you can go down and their is a fairy that will follow you down the well and turns into a ball of light in the dark. This game also contains copy protection that will ask you for a word on a page, paragraph, word number format. EX: What is the fifth word on page 4, paragraph 2?

FReaKy_Praf:
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.

im gonna go out on a limb... moon patrol?

I am looking for a Mac game. I believe it was a freeware when I played it or maybe a demo. This is back in like 1994-1996 (not exactly sure of the time but should be around there).

You start out with a castle (I think your army was green) and it is a turn based strategy game where you conquer other castles. Different castles can produce different units I believe. There were different armies like red (which were fire based?) and black. When you fight with the enemy armies, a screen shows up where you see how much soldiers you have. When each soldier dies, there's this kind of exploding animation.

Hmm it will be great if anybody can help me out. I remember I had a blast playing this as a kid and would be delighted to revisit it.

Nevermind found it. Warlords 2!

I'm looking for a pc game on windows 95 or 98. There is a pipe on the left that you can take balls of different colors. There are tracks in the middle of the screen and what you have to do is to put the balls into one of the 2 or 3 funnel on the top and let it row down to different destinations. You have to match the color of the ball to the color of the cell. If all cell is filled, you will proceed to the next level and the balls will roll to the left and give you points.
It would be great if anybody remember this game. I have been trying to google it for a long time.

I used to play a game like bomberman/dyna blaster. it looked similar. Labyrinth - every level different (in one cubes were wooden, in other flower pattern...). You started at right side and was about to get to the left upper corner. from time to time (or always?) there was a princess. As the level was higher, princess wa locked behind more and more doors to which you were about to gather keys in labyrinth. there were one or several enemies, not sure now. But you, except from destroying, were able to move cubes, in direcion where the place was.

A game I used to play:

I remember it being called Clayland, but tried google it for ages with no result, so maybe it was unpopular or I remember the name wrong.
It was a game with top-down view. Shooter. You spawned in the middle of the screen, and had to pick up weapons such as shotguns and all the way to plasma guns (which would bounce from enemy to enemy). The enemey was zombies, in later stages the levels would get really hard, with zombies ALL over the place. I also remember it as there would get other enemeies besides zombies, such as big insects, but Im not sure. There would also spawn white worm looking "hives" which could spawn zombies and other enemies directly on to the field.
The graphics were really simple. Just plain 2d, no 3d.
I played it around 2003-2004.

Your help is much appreciated.

Coldie:
That sounds extremely similar to Faery Tale Adventure 2: The Halls of the Dead.
