Can someone please help me? :'c

I've been searching a lot... for this game I played maybe between 2000-2007 and I really can't find it... and I really want to...
I think it is a platform game that has 3 characters a fighter(?), a mage and an archer i think... I'm sure it has a mage though... I played with him. In the beginning we were in a forest and there was a shop on a tree (i guess) and the mage was little and wore blue clothes and hat and after the forest as the game goes on we are in a dungeon i guess with bats (they're enemies), and there's water and I think we have to catch gems and all that. I think the game really resembles Trine but the image is different. I've searched everywhere pls help me (:

PS: I was little so I think me and my uncle used to call the game of the dwarfs or something like that because they were little or something... Oh!! and the game as a very soft music i think and beautiful lights~

Could it be Gauntlet Dark Legacy or Guantlet Seven Sorrows?

No... it wasn't those ones :c it is something like that but I think it is played like only with a profile view like from the side it isn't but I think it was a bit 3D but not that much. But the type of game was something like that at least the characters. It is getting very difficult to find it :c I've been searching everywhere to the point of going through long lists of games but can't find it :c
Thanks a lot for the answer though (:

Been trying to figure out how to reply to you.. I think your game is Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance.. either that or diablo

.. And you'd think a gaming blog would have abilities for deleting posts..

BarbMpls:
I'm trying to remember an old (1990-ish) 2D game for PC. It wasn't one of the more well-known or popular games; I think I got it via download or on a 3/5" diskette (or maybe even a 5" floppy disk).

To begin the game, you chose attributes for your character (I think). In the opening scene, you learned that your home had been burned to the ground, so you set off from there. In each town, there were stores where you could buy/sell armor, weapons, magic spells, etc. As you left the town borders, you encountered enemies to fight. I believe that everything was in overhead view, until you checked your inventory or entered a store; then you got more detailed views of the items you had or could buy. If I recall correctly, each stage of the game required you to go to another town where the available armor, weapons, and spells were more powerful. You could also find (and sometimes buy) larger packs to hold your inventory.

It's been so long since I've played this game, I really hope I'm not scrambling 5 or 6 games together in my memory. Any idea what game I'm referring to?

sounds a lot like diablo, but then again that was well known and certainly not on a floppy or diskette

Hey everybody,

I read a bunch of pages trying to find the description/name of the game I'm looking for, but i vaguely remember it as a kid. It was on a ps1 demo disc (I believe a early-ish playstation magazine disc) and all I remember is the game beginning with wind blowing, and it having a dark japanese-type theme to it with a little blue character running around and collecting gems. It's been bugging me for ages and any help is appreciated, thanks!

Klanoa starts with a windmill.. check it out.

Ok I really want to figure out the name of this game. All I remember was that it was definitely for PSX, and that it was a RPG, with a turn-based battle system. Also, your characters had the power to turn into powerful angel-like people. This is all I can remember....Sorry if it isn't enough info...

Okay I realized this was a HORRIBLE description, so I'm going to reiterate.
This game was definitely for the PS1. It had a mostly top-down camera view, and had 3D graphics. It was an RPG with a turn-based battle system, and the party had the ability to turn into angel-like people with upgraded powers. I hope this more detailed description will help.

Hello everyone,

I need some serious help with remembering the name of this arcade game. I have exhausted all my Google resources 

I remember this arcade game (upright cabinet) around the year 1987-1992.
The game was a 2 player vertical scrolling shooter. The one unique thing I remember about the game was the powerups. The powerups were soldiers on the field and when you picked them up in your hover vehicle, they would hang on the vehicle as gunners. I believe you can have up to 4-5 at one time.

The game had a kind of futuristic Robotech look to it.

Any help would be appreciated and ease my wondering mind.

Thanks

Shot in the dark, Valkyrie Profile?

I was playing a game (it was around 10 years ago) where you were the only one human in the game universe and you could use 3 types of mechas to help yourself (small red, medium green and big blue ones). Your character could fight with a machine gun, laser and lock-on missiles. Also you could take over some buildings and blue mechas. The last mission was getting inside some building and jumping into a teleport which "teleported" you to some unknown area filled with weird collumns shooting energy balls in the air. Also water was dangerous for everything.

I remember playing a game in the late 90s on the computer where you were a kid in middle school or high school and your dad had a train set in the attic and you can chose to play with it but if you crash it he gets pissed off at you. I also believe your grandfather dies and comes back to talk to you as a ghost, the last thing I remember is your babysitter or neighbor is a vampire or a monster of sort. And for some reason I think you help your mom cut carrots and you cut your finger.

Sorry if I wasn't descriptive enough all I could remember and google wasn't helping.

Can anybody help me , I played a this game about 5 - 6 years ago it started like this :
you land on an alien planet with a squad of 3 or 4 guys and youre the leader , everyone of them is a specialist in a different weapon you have a sniper a bazuka maybe a rifle and as you land on the planet you start to fight with the aliens , while you fight you can change between characters as in you can control everyone of them you can change formations of the squad and give many different orders while you run and fight you can heal the members of the squad and they can heal you this was the first mission i wasnt very good so i didnt finish it . Any ideas ???

So i need help with this game. It was a very old game i played when i was like 3-4 years old in 1996, but the game was probably older, since it was on my dads "college-build" computer, which had DOS I believe, be cause it had also the very first Sim City installed which i remember clearly: http://startswithabang.com/?p=1339
However, what i remember about the game I'm looking for:
-Horizontal scroll game like mario.
-I think its a blue/red/green clothed man you control.
-He starts in front of a castle.
-You can enter the castle, and there is some invisible platforms you can jump on, but they don't lead anywhere and there is nothing else to do (maybe i was to young to understand it) - The Background of the castle was pure black i believe.
-The surroundings of the castle was trees and it was night: a black background with stars.
-You had to go right from the castle and cross some cliffs with the help of brick-made grayish platforms.
-Blue (and maybe other colored) birds tries to kill you or push you of the platforms. They fly freely on the 2D screen.

-First level is described as above, next level i remember being a sandy/harbor level, which ends at a space rocket :

-Space rocket leads the player to the last level i remember: Space, which was all just flying UFO's 'n such.

That's actually all i remember.

Thanks (:

EDIT:
ITS CAPTAIN COMIC

I also need help with a game I believe it's a ps2 (rpg maybe)game where your a samurai or something and i think you could use magic. you start off in a village. also i think you could choose between different characters at the start and I always picked some guy with tattoos all over his back. I remember cause the game was in 3rd person view. yeah if someone has any idea it would be greatly appreciated.

I can't remember the name of this game but it was on Sega 16 bit. It was birds eye view and followed 1 and possibly 2 players in co-op and you walked around a city in the beginning and kill people and grab their whips, guns, knives etc. There was a later level where you are in a cave and everything is dark but a light circle around you.

This is all I can remember it was a FREAKIN AWESOME game !

Thanks for your time !

Hello all,

I also have a game I really want to know the name of!
When I was younger (about 8 years ago I guess), a friend of my sister brought a CD with a lot of games on it. One of the games was ANNO1602, so the game is probably about the same age.

The game starts with an option for 2 rases: something with skeletons, and an other with wolves. Then you came in a map with 1 opponent, wich was also a kind of skeleton-race. I remember the opponent had a sort of magician wich spawned skeletons and healed them. For your own race, you could make also a sort of shaman who could heal.

For the rest, I remember playing in a big map where you could build a village and your army. One of the buildings was a kind of Chinese temple, where you could make that sort of shaman. Also castles for making Knights.
I also could remember that I was irritating the fact that your troops could lead his own life (sort of agresive mode).

My memory isn't very good (also my english isn't!) but I hope someone recognizes this game!
Thanks!

EDIT:
It was a 3D game with birt-eyed view!

Ok I've been trying to figure this out for years. Hopefully someone can help me out here. I remember a fighting game, I think it was either on the NES or the SNES. I don't remember much about it other than one character who i think wore black slacks, a black vest on a white shirt, and had a monocle. And one stage which had a divider in the middle that went from he bottom of the screen about 2/3 to the top. On either side of the divider was water and you had to fight the other player or computer while trying to keep to the surface or you'd drown and you could jump back and forth over the divider.

This game was different in the way that you controlled the game. I remember that you had a spider that you had to navigate through a map with obstacles. The map was in 3d. BUT, you could NOT control the spider itself, but you had do things around it to make it move through the map. I remember that my dad said that it was kind of unique in that way. This game I played around 1994 to 2002. I cant remember more then that :|.

The game i remember playing is where ur a frog or something that walks around this castle (never goes outside always inside) and he fights monsters and some drop keys that you collect and once you collect one key u can fight a boss the bosses were orges and when u fought them they gave u multiplication problems and everytime u solved one the problem got harder and the timer went down quicker and once u defeated the boss another door opened that sent u to another area it was for the computer and i remember playing it while i was in elementary i did check baldurs gate / dark alliance they were not it so if anyone could hlep me out it would be greatly appreciated and THANKS!! Hope someone can help out.

Noooo.....Valkyrie Profile has a distinctly different graphic style. However, I think the game may have been made by Square, but I'm not sure....
Thanks for trying!!

Ok, there are 3 games that are bugging me and I cannot for the life of me remember what the hell were their names. So please, if you know, answer me :)

1) It was a point and click game. I remember a couple of parts of the game and the first area was a forest area, you had to get into a castle but I got stuck behind some lazers and couldn't figure out how to get past. Anyway, the parts I remmber are that a couple of bandits tried to rob you but you could give them a cursed ring or something that you picked up and that ring turned their leader into a skeleton and killed him, the rest ran off I think. The other part was a troll or a one eyed giant or something and you had to sneak into his cave, which was blocked off by a giant boulder.

2) 2nd Game I remember really really vaguely because I only played it for a short while after borrowing it from my friend, I won't be at all surprised that none of you know what I'm talking about. Anyway I think it was a game where you were a business man. I think it was mostly just a backround of where you where at the moment (train station, etc) and then you could choose what to do via some boxes placed there. I know it sounds cheap but I remember it being a rather good looking game. It came out around the same year as Captain Quazar(1996) because I belive they were on the same disc.

3) 3rd Game I also played for a brief amount of time but I got interested in it recentyl again. All I remember is that I think it's set in a futuristic setting, It's an action adventure game and you're controlling a female police officer. At the start of the game, I belive you have to pass the tutorial which is essentially just an obsticle course at the police academy or something.

If you took the time to read this, thank you. And I hope at least one of you knows what I'm blabbering about.

This sounds like Legend of the Dragoon. Turn based RPG, mostly top down view, and during combat you can change into dragoons with new armor, wings, and upgraded stats/powers.

i remember a game pack where one of the games you had a bunch of ropes that crossed each other and your goal was to untangle them occasionally there would be a red rope. Another game you had sets of 4 marbles with one or more of them being red blue or black, i do not remember the goal of that game. and the game i really liked on the game pack was the one where you had blocks placed around the screen and it was a kind of puzzle where you had to drop the blocks one by one down a hole on the screen but the restriction was that you moved all the blocks at the same time. Does anyone remember any of these? i think they were in windows. any help finding the name of the games would be much appreciated!

one more thing, it is quite some years old, i think i played it about 10-20 years ago, hope that helps :)

This third one could potentially be Oni.

Alright, I doubt anyone will know this from my Description since I last played it when I was what, 4? All I really remember is that you seem to start in a Room with bookshelves on either side of you, it was top-down view, and fireflies had a gameplay element(I think you used them to provide light in locations?). Doubt anyone will get it from that, but it's worth a try ;D

& It was most likely a Ps1 Game.

Edit: No way. I just managed to find it, out of PURE chance.. ;P (It was monkey hero, and looks like I was a little off about the Library start xD)

Im stilll looking for this one but in google I cant find it however I remember I read about it some time ago in one of those top ten list, maybe it wasnt top ten bestest games ever but more like top ten under the radar platformer or more unknown ones, perhaps more difficult ones... it was a console game for sure perhaps NES, PC Engine or Master System.... not sure as I didnt own that game and just played in a friends... any clue will help, thanks =)

I forgot a detail, the robot looks a bit like big egg like an egg or capsule with arms and legs but stronger... I know its not helping a lot...

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 2D 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 =).

No, I remember it looking a little worse than that. And it wasn't that futuristic then, I guess. I think it was a little bit of an open-world game aswell.

I doubt anyone will know what I'm talking about since it was a long time ago and I'm not even sure if I remember right but why not ask?!

It's a computer game that I had played in the 90s and from memory it was quite pixilated. I remember it was something like a ghost or a person (I think it was a lightish blue or white figure) that was searching through some sort or building I think in order to find clues and there was something to do with mail/envelopes (I think you may have needed to collect them-not sure).

Has anybody else played something that sounds similar?!?!

ok this has bugged me for a while and I hope someone can help,

Ps1 game
there are 2 characters a man and a woman (they were police i think) trapped in a tower building and you had to fight robots and terrorists i think, game play was similar to resident evil could have been 2 disks but im not sure (could be thinking resi 2 there) and one character starts at bottom of tower and the other starts at top cant remember much else.

its either legend of dragoon or persona (also you don't really transform but memory can mess a lot of things) i say its persona since video in legend of dragoon is third person view.

oinimusha ?

forgive me for my bad english (but i tried my best :P)

Game 1 was playstation 1. 1v1 fighting game, the first level was on a roof top at night and the character had a giant sword like something from final fantasy, if you won the fight you get a large belt like something from WWE.

Game 2 was playstation 1 or 2. driving game, possibly 1v1 where the drivers had their own vehicle like monster truck or camper van and each had special powers such as shooting bees or lightning. one of the maps was at old airfield with scrap planes and it was sunny, another was at night at an airport.

game 2 -> probably "vigilante 8" ?

Hi guys!
So, i had a game for my ps2, around 2005, and i cant remember much of it. i just know the main character was some sort of animal, like a puma or a tiger and, i think, it was a bounty hunter.
i also remember it had some sort of weapon attached to one of its arms and you could buy upgrades to it, and it was in the countryside or something like that.
im sorry, i dont have any more info... i found it these days on PSN, but i cant find it anymore and im so stupid that i didnt save the name.

The first game sound like Erhgeiz, but that could be way off. The second game sounds like either Vigilante 8 or one of the Twisted Metal games.

oh, i also remember that the people on the old town were actually pigs, not humans.
