There is a game on the original Playstation that takes part on this arctic/antarctic facility...
Around the beginning of the game, you have this little floating robot for an ally but it eventually gets destroyed in some way. The enemies that you face are regular people, but I think there was some kind of disease or something around because they could change into these weird forms that had rough black hair, red eyes and grey skin. The indoor portions were in a research facility of some sort, and the outdoor portions were covered in snow. There was hand-to-hand combat and I believe that you had weaponry of some kind (laser/conventional firearms).

I also remember a room that had a giant gap in the floor you couldn't jump across, you had to solve some kind of puzzle to make it over to the other side. I'm also recalling wall terminals that you could use for various things.

It's one of the few games that I can remember playing, but can't for the life of me remember it's name.
Probably wasn't even all that good, but it's annoying to be able to recall exactly what it looked like and nothing else.

Sounds like Overblood. I never played this game, but you start out freezing and have to find a way to keep warm. You quickly team up with a small robot you name 'Pipo', and in this video at 2:30 might be the gap you couldn't jump that you described.

I've just spent the whole night trying to figure out a demo of a game I played in my childhood. For some reason I've been getting flashbacks to it lately, and not knowing the name is driving me mad. My vague memory of it involves a camp in a desert-like environment. It was an action-adventure game (if I remember correctly), with some RPG elements (perhaps). For some reason I'm reminded of Morrowind (even though it's definitely not Morrowind). I think it could be played from a first person perspective. The game came on a European PC game magazine demo disc, probably in the early 2000's. I remember it being PC Gamer, but it could have easily been another magazine. My memory of the game involves going around the nomad style camp area talking to various people. Once you left the camp (into a desert, I think), the demo ends.

This seems to be a rather old thread, but these dream-like flashbacks have really been bugging me the whole week. If anyone reads this and remembers any game vaguely similar to what I've just described, I'd be very grateful to hear about it.

I have the same memory of a game just like that, i can add a bit more if it's actually the same game. I remember that you could walk around through a desert like scenario and you had a home, you started at a house with a woman laying on a bed sleeping, if you attacked her a witch would appear and she would easily kill you. Also, the main character was a bit of barbarian like, he had long dark hair. But the part of being similar to Morrowind and being a demo from an european magazine I'm almost certain it's the same game. I can't remember the name of the magazine, I thought it would be pcgamer or something like that but can't find it.

Ah yes, that's it!
Thanks for that. I was thinking it might have been called something else or I grossly forgot what C-12 looked like.
Good to know it wasn't some mid '90s feverdream.

Hey people,

I used to play a PSOne Game where you were (inline) skating and could put bombs to kill the other players, the characters looked like animes and the arena was huge that means you could run (skate) away from other players or chase them

Sorry for my bad English but its very important to me to find this game!

Im unsure about this one but could it be "Silent Bomber"?

There is a game I really can't find.
It's a space type game, not sure what genre but from what I can remember it went like this.
You could play as Human or 4 other alien races, don't remember they're names but one was huge red aliens who loved war and battle but were not advanced, one race was yellow who were really advanced, the last I remember is a purple race, and you could play as a pirate and steal from other ships, transport stuff between planets, be a soldier, and also when you do stuff for the different races you get medals.
Also there were 3 different robot alien races who have control of some planets and sometimes several other cpu players would gather to try and free those planets, and when you destroy one of these alien robots you get some kind of coloured energy ball which you can trade for stuff, either money or go to the soldier/pirate/trader etc space station and get special stuff.
You could also do strategy battles on different planets or choose not to play those kinds of missions.
There are 2 games like this and i'm looking for the second one cause that's the one I liked best but I just can't remember any name from the game, Terran keeps popping into my head but didn't find anything about the game i'm looking for.
Oh one last thing, it was 2D like when you fly aorund in space but 3D when you do strategy fights on planets, and in space you see everything from above, also you could visit different planets either inhabited and get missions from the race that lives on the planet or a non inhabited planet and drop probes around to see if you find anything of value, lastly you could travel around only as far as the engine let's you, the better the engine the more parsecs you could travel.

Nevermind I just found it, it was Space Rangers 2: Rise of The Dominators

Hi all,
I remember playing a game perhaps in the 8-bit era or something very close (no more than 16-bit), which is basically a platformer where main character is a little girl inside a robot (color redish and strong humanoid shape), the robot has a certain energy, after its finished its useless and then the girl should walk around on her own but she has so few energy that even weak enemies could kill her. I think the environment was something like a strange planet but as the graphics were very simple it has the aspect of first Super Mario games (SMB2 or so). Anyone know what game could this be? thanks for any clue =).

Hey The old game I'm looking for I forget the name I think it was called, Enomorph, Emomorph or xenomorph or something.

Its an ancient pc game like 15+ years old I guess, I remember the box art it was of a muscular man with a bare chest and long hair I think was blonde (but it was faded with no colour but you could tell)

He had a green transforming arm with little darthmaul head looking spikes comming out of it, he had a green glowing outline around him but that wasnt like his power was just box art and the background was completely black.

The game had the gameplay layout like baldurs gate or planescape torment, NOT the same gameplay or that thaco stuff or anything or strength+1 ect but the same look from above.

You pressed spacebar to punch and you could learn spells and stuff you started with a like blue fireball spell and an iron skin spell.

The main character wore an orange tunic and really nothing else and when you killed stuff it just popped into a pile of bones.

On the very first level/island you are doing a quest for this giant spider god thing but its like in your mind its not like anywhere to be seen, when you do all this trecking about you summon a giant green octopus out of the sea and that takes you to the main game/continant you play on.

This is about as much info as I can give If anyone played this please tell me and where i could get it and the name.

It's called Dig Dug!

That's Entomorph: Plague of the Darkfall.

rts game about 5 or 10 years ago
you battle with mechs and after defeating another mech there was a chance they dropped a body part and you could attach it to one of your mechs

Hi. I'm sorry if this one's been asked already, but I'm thinking about an arcade game I used to play (once at an amusement park, the other at a mall) about ten years ago where a player assumes the role of either a blue or red character, competing in a variety of mini-games. I distinctly remember joking that the characters resembled Mega Man, and one could play multiplayer to compete with each other.

Sorry if that's not a lot to go on. Either way, thanks.

The game you're looking for is called Metal Fatigue.

BaffledCat:
Found this through copious internet searching, and I can only hope someone's played the same obscure game I have.

This is a game I played back in the early-mid '90s on an old Compaq (the system was Windows 95, possibly earlier). It was a simple adventure game with very basic graphics and no sense of perspective.

The MC was some manner of jungle explorer. The game starts out with him and a woman, who gets bit by a spider pretty quickly. The point of the game is to collect items in order to heal her. I recall having to cross a river at some point, but the main plot point I remember is the cannibals! I can't remember if you were doomed to be captured or if 5-year-old me was just doomed to failure, but the jungle explorer gets captured by cannibals and has to escape his cage before being thrown in the pot (old school racism at its best). If you're successful at collecting the items and getting back to the woman in time, the game ends with you saving her life and a helicopter appearing to take her to a hospital.

I *believe* the game came with the system (my family didn't have an internet connection, so it wasn't downloaded, and I know it wasn't bought). I played it around 1995/1996.

Hopefully someone has encountered this game!

This was definately Hugo 3, Jungle of Doom!

I NEED HELP!
Okay so when I was a younger kid I played a game on the pc where there were red balls falling and you had to shoot them with this stringy thing by clicking the space bar. When you hit the balls with the string they would get smaller and eventually get "killed." I think you we're a little guy and you used the arrow keys to move around shooting these red balls. Please tell me someone knows what I'm talking about.

I spent lot of time to find logic game that I play when I was young :) It is called D-Generation :P

your game with balls : PANG ! :)

Drorian:
old game my cousin lent me, it was probably inside a videogame magazine from italy, con cd-rom, played it on pentium 166, turn based rpg with isometric visual very similar to final fantasy tactics, more western than jap-rpg but still with square based grid, you impersonated some guy (probably a prince) on a journey, followed by a girl and a weapon master or something similar and maybe other friends, the game was almost only about subsequent battles, very similar to battle for wesnoth in this. I took my nickname from what I thought it was the game's title(and the main character's name): Drorian about 12 years ago but in all these years I haven't been able to find out anything about this game.
You think it could've been an italian only developer? I don't even remember if the game was in english...

Bump.. please I really need to find out where my nickname comes from :P

I can add the main character had a big sword, and he gained some special skill for every mission (battle), those were attack skills that for example damaged all the tiles in two lines convergent in a cross on the map, very unusual range (along all the map!) for this kind of games..

Hi, I'm new, and I'm dieing to find this sorta kiddy game I played when I was younger.
It's a game that you play in browser online and you register and all, and it is it's own website not like miniclip.
Im almost certain its got something like Dino/Dinosaur/Monster in its name, and then something like Zoo/Land/Park sorta stuff. You start of with money I think and you choose between different monsters/creatures. You can also get different species of them like one of the monsters is a dog sorta thing and you can get the dog in different colours. Every day/hour the shop gets new monsters. They can level up and its NOT POKEMON, but you can trade on this island and all.
Thanks for the help!

CrAstrum:
I really need help to find name of a game from PS1. I'm searching it for days and still couldn't find it.

That game's camera angle was like Resident Evil games. I guess we were a cop or something like that. And we had a partner beside us. We could choose our partner. And i think two men were holding guns towards each other end of the intro.

I'm about to going crazy while searching this game. :( Please help!

I'm still looking for this game. :( Please help. :(

SpikeGhost:
Ok, guyz, I believe my will be the hardest ever... anyway. I played this on the psx times, and the reason I don't remember the name is because the cover and the game itself was in japanese, so it's possible it was only released in japan.

It's a sidescrolling game, where you can choose 3 characters: All animals, but they walk in two legs, like cartoons.
one is a circus monkey(with a red outfit) and uses a stick as a weapon
other is a bird (a parrot, i think) and uses a long cutting weapon I don't know the name
And the other is a pink pig which uses a Trident

Each one had a special move, I only remember the pig's one, which blasts a short flame from his mouth

The first stage is a jungle with shallow water on the ground, and you beat the enemies, like a beat'em up game, when they die they drop lots of coins...

I remember there was other stage in a kinda castle

You can choose a different character for each stage

The graphics os this game were awesone for a side scrolling, I played this between 1996-1998

I hope anyone can help ><

makavely5435:
so there waz this game i would play on ps1 wen i waz very young, you can choose a character, nd it starts wit a blimp crashing and then your stranded and theres monsters and you need to find a key to open gates. also the weapon u have shoots like plasma balls and its different colors like blue, red etc. one can be fire another can be like ice or something like that. and theres bats flying around nd u can kill dem but they can hurt u nd if u see a monster u needa kill it. its a very creepy game for PS1 u could be a girl or a guy. u can climb up things or jump over huge gaps and u hang on da border of da other side of da gap until u climb up. please i really wana know da name of it! its all dark nd scary. i think da monsters can shoot u bak bcuz they got guns but like wit plasma balls. the game starts wit a blimp dat crashes down or i think its shot down by the monsters. PLEASE HELP! i need to kno!!!

I remember the same game as well! I liked it a LOT! all I can remember is that some gates were locked and you needed keys, bats usually waited on the ground or on ceilings and jumped at you, damaging you (I think a heartbeat sound played at that moment) if you didn't shoot them (they used to scare me a lot) and you had lots of weapons, futuristic weapons, like plasma guns and other stuff. It was 2D if I recall correctly. It was either on PS1 or PC. Very old, it was at least from the 90s or older. The atmosphere of the game was pretty gloomy. I also googled and found that it might have been a metroid game but I doubt it, just like you said, the game had gates that required keys and the game also had like... 9, 10 or 11 weapons if I recall correctly. The weapon list were shown at the top or at the bottom of the screen, I forgot where exactly.
I registered just to tell you this, I've tried to remember it for years and it really pains me not remembering the name!

I haven't found a single thing on the internet, searched everything bout games related to "bats" or "plasma weapons" on websites like giantbomb but I haven't found anything except stuff about Metroid games but I don't think it was a metroid game... I'm 100% sure it was 2D (or at least 3D in a 2D perspective like Trine) and you had to look around for keys to open doors, and the game also had a pretty gloomy atmosphere, It used to scare me a little when I was younger. The game also had pretty immersive sound effects, I still remember the bats because they were scary as fuck, they flew in your face and when you got damaged a loud heartbeat sound played I think.

Hello
Sorry for my 1st post but want to find that game

I play it approx. maybe 9-10 years ago.
Really don't remember anything in 100%, but you play as lemming-like character. It have blue robe(?) and sword.
At the end of level you get level code, and you can use it to start from that level, or something like that.

Thanks for help :)

Im looking for a PC game from the late or midd 90s, not sure.
I cant seem to remember the name of it or the plot that good. (was watching my cusin play it).
But it was with a baby that was going to some milk factory, you had to make sure that the baby came "safe" through diffrent stages. Through the living room, make sure it didnt go into dangerous traps, through the kitchen and backyard and so on. Can also remember a sound you often could hear, sounded like a dumpster closing or opening when you went from one room to the next.

hope it rings a bell in someones mind :D

anyone?

Wasn't there a game called 'Got Milk?' That sounds roughly like it but I'm not too sure :/

Hello,

I'm also looking for a an old game, that's been on my mind for quite a while now.

I believe it should be like 10-15 years old PC game, if I'm correct.

Basically it was a game, where you had to control balls to destroy your enemy balls. The controls were same as in any pool game. Oh and each team had a king ball (a ball with a crown). I think you would get another turn, if you destroyed one of your enemies balls and would loose if your king died.

The game had 3d graphics and for some reason i think it had the word Twilight or something alike in the name.

If anyone remembers anything similar, please help me, the name of this game has been bothering me for quite a long time now.

I'm actually looking for a game that I played when I was very young. It was at the dentist and an arcade game that was a sit down one with 2 different games on each side. I loved it cause they somehow rigged it so you didn't have to put money in and could just keep playing by just pressing the token button! I don't remember too much about it other then you were some sort of little guy that shot bubbles to kill enemies. I think it was a side scroller and at the end of every level there was a big boss. I've looked everywhere but everytime I look up "arcade" and "bubbles" together in google I just get bubble bobble or bust a move. I'm pretty sure it wasn't puzzle and that it was action. Please help me!

What a terrific thread, this has been bugging me for years.

Ok so I am pretty sure it was an NES game, although it might have been for SEGA Genesis. One of those top down RPG games, you know the kind, swords and armor, potions and magic etc... So anyways, it was either at the beginning of the game or at some point in the middle. You basically ran general store for a time, people would come in and buy and sell things for a while, you go home go to sleep, wake up repeat the process, and then eventually one day close up shop for whatever reason and set off on some adventure or something.

Ok so the game starts off with a man runing through a forest or something and hes thinking about his wife and kid but once he gets to the edge of a cliff where he can see his hometown a bomb hits it and blows it all to hell... But the game is a flying game where u fly around dropping bombs and shooting down planes/aircraft and u could travel any direction you wanted not like a scrolling game like raptor. You could also land to rearm in the game and fly back up and drop more bombs and destroy as many bases as the map held ... When u got to the edge of the map u would bounce off back into the map kind of like a ball hitting the wall. Please if anyone knows this game I would very much appreciate it. It was for the pc I remember playing it in the 90s

Milon's Secret Castle is the only game (other than bubble bobble)that i can think of that had you kill enemies with bubbles.
