I played a very old game on some PC. It's a 2D platformer, entirely black and white. Ladders, bricks and walls, that sort of thing. You played as a stickman or a ninja or something like that, and the most fun part was easily the level editor.

I don't suppose anyone's heard of it?

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.

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.

Thank you so much! This is the game! Yay!

so i have been having trouble remembering a game from when i was a kid, like really little so its a really vague description and i hope some one can help. so here it goes: you played as an alien in a space ship i think, and it was on a map and you maybe had to answer trivia type questions. and the back grounds were always white. and there was a little mini game where you had to throw cheese (or pies?) at these little yellow worms. the graphics were really simple. and that's really all i can remember about it, and it was early 90s when i was playing? like probably 95-ish?

so yeah any ideas?

Also it was a PC game.

I feel lucky to have found this thrad. I registered just for this, I hope that's all right. I actually have a few memories of this game, but honestly they may be multiple games. so really whatever seems familiar to the memories just post the names please... ^^;

I'm pretty sure it was for the SNES, as that was my main game system when I was a child, back in the 90s. I could be wrong, however!

The first thing I remember is going up or north. It was an interesting area that was filled with traps. there was a narrow path, like walking down an aisle while to the left and right were like cubicles, often times with boulders in them. Sometimes a boulder would roll down and you'd have to move into one of the the "cubicles". Sometimes there would be a step-on switch there which would trigger a boulder to shoot out from the side. I remember the character looking somewhat like Link from the Legend of Zelda but I'm very unsure.

Another memory I have is again heading up up or north... It was a bone bridge like place, and under was bubbling liquid. like lava or tar or such. I remember it was a group of characters. 2-4. I know someone was always following you. At the end of the bridge was a roundish building made out of bones I think. It was quote the detailed game, but I don't remember much besides that I loved it. I thought it could be Secret of Evermore, but the only bubbling like area didn't fit it perfectly, as I remember a distinct area with red lava you have to avoid, it was like puddles of it.

My last one has a word map to it. It was a group of four characters and the only thing I can remember is they were jumping from one side of the screen to the next. the left building or tower was collapsing and they jumped to a window to the next pillar. Inside was a king I believe. It honestly reminds me of final Fantasy but again I'm unsure.

Honestly I would love to find that/those game(s). I loved them dearly as a kid and I'd love to find them and show them to my fiance. thank you, everyone!

EDIT: I was a major RPGer and still am. I'm not sure if all of these are. It's always either adventure / rpg with me if that helps. But I can't remember battle systems well, so I can't help with that. I apologize

I have another game I want to remember.

It was a kid game and about a fish who had to collect items (I think) and ultimately set up a trap to catch some criminal. The last room where you set up the trap was always a room with those hanging candle thingys in the ceiling. I also think that the bad guy was always a different guy and you had to collect different things each playthrough. It was for the PC and was set underwater, not with some freak of nature fish boy walking around the drylands

oh, oh, oh... i found it! my brother spent the whole day searching for it, hahaha.
It's called "Oddworld - Strangers Wrath"! :)

possibly Clive Barkers Jericho for ps2?

Can someone tell me the name of a game it was on a pas demo disc that had a blue cover but it wasn't a demo it was just a video you could watch which looked like a horror game where a woman was able to turn into this giant blood monster and attacked a city I really wish to remember what it was called

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...

asdronin:
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 =).

Uhm... Miracle Ropit's Adventure in 2100?

Thats it!! great thank you!! =) also thank you very much to all who tried that one I know it was really hard to find this one =).

By the way now I remember how hard it use to be, and in fact the list where I saw it was for sure about really hard games, as loosing the robot is really easy and without it we are mere humans with even less options to survive, however its challenging game and I recommend it to anyone looking for a hard one :D

I am trying to remember the name of the PC game where you are given clues about decorating rooms by the homeowner. You have a few clues that are vague riddles, then you purchase furniture, decorations etc. and get points based on rather or not you decorated it the way they wanted. There are multiple people you get to work on assembly and they get injured and tired. Can anyone help me with this?

Ok, so I've been searching everywhere with my results always yielding "Persona 3" - but that is not the game I am looking for.

It was a game I played on PS2. It was a dungeon crawler. where I believe you could have 6 people in your party (3 in the front and 3 in the back) It was grid based movement system, and you explored the dungeon my moving down on "levels". If you stayed on a level too long a grim reaper would chase you down (that is why I always get Persona 3). You could enter and exit the dungeon when ever you liked - the purpose was to get to the bottom floor (which ever that was, I never completed it). The dungeon was surrounded by a village that you could exit too to buy armour, potions, cure status ailments and revive characters. The most characterising thing I can remember about this game is that, if a member of your party died it was permanent. Which was why death was so scary~ If he caught up to you you would have to battle him and he was capable of killing party members instantly. you could find new party members in the dungeon however - but of course you needed to train them anew and they may not have been the same class as your older member.

two last details about the game - it was 1st person view, but as it was tile based movement you could only turn in 4 directions. And finally you could see monsters on the grid except they were orange ethereal "thingies" if they noticed you they turned red and chased you.

I've been trying to find the title of this game for ages, if anyone knows what it is please tell me.

Elminage, Possibly?

Ok seriously, I am baffled that no one has heard of this game. I've spent like 5 years looking for it.

It's on the PC, I belive it was for win 95, so it's created somewhere around 95' or so.
It's a point and click game and from the screenshots I've seen I guess it looks a little like King's Quest but from what I remember and the clips I've seen of KQ, it is a rather different game. It is set in a medieval setting and the part that I played took place in a forest. There are 2 things I remember clearly. 1) At some points Forest bandits attack you and ask for your stuff, you give them a magic ring that kills the wearer and turns him into a skeleton, the rest of the bandits run away. 2) At one point you had to go into a giant's or a troll's cave and either retrive an item or rescue someone. The cave's entrance was blocked off by a giant boulder.

I also remember that my play of it ended when I got stuck at an entrance to a castle. It had a gargoyle statue shooting out a laser beam guarding it and I couldn't get past it.

I've seriously tried searching every site that has DOS games for it and I've come up empty everywhere, it's so frustrating, I want to play that bloody game.

I think this game might be from like the 90's or early 2000's I used to play it in Elementry school (I'm 16 now) and it was involving cars and I'm pretty sure you (the player) were a car and there were other cars and there were platforms and I don't even remember what the goal of the game was but I'm sure it wasn't a racing game but more of a survival game because I think the other cars could like shoot you or something like that. It was a PC game and I don't think there was much of a background to it really other than just there being platforms to drive onto

J.T. Wiles:
I can't remember the name of this game but it was on Sega 16 bit. It was -side on- 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 -knives, baseball bats- etc. There was a later level where you are in a -fairground tunnel- and everything is dark but a -possible- light circle around you.

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

Thanks for your time !

With the amendments above, this is Streets of Rage 2.. But if all the bits you described are exact, then it's not.

Vigilante 8 or Twisted Metal possibly? V8 was ported quite a lot, not sure if it made it on to PC though, and the platforms thing isn't quite spot on.. But if it had a tangy 70's groove to it, that's what you're after.

Even if it's not, you should play it - that game is funky.

I was playing a some kind ofstrategy/Civilization building game few years back. In this game i would start constructing some houses then villagers would come from some place and settle. Then i start constructing more houses, farms, waterways, watch tower. Also create/set some characters as night watchman. Would beautify city or keep people happy by constructing town centres, theaters and more. Now i can't remember the name of the game. If anyone have some info/link or knows the name. Please let me know.

Thanks

Wizardry: Tale of the Forsaken Land 100% sure :P

Hi, been browsing this thread a bit and found some games i remembered from my childhood, but I can't seem to find this one.

Basically, you're some kind of miner and everyone's dead by the time you get there. You play as on ship in a isometric view. You can mine materials and upgrade your ship with it when you visit docks or something. There's also aliens that you have to fight through because your company messed up or something. Didn't really get far as it was a demo and it was back in 99 or early 00s.

Hey guys! I'm looking for an old Playstation 1 game.
All my brother and I could remember is:

1. that it is a side scroller game, similar to the Double Dragon series.
2. You could choose from 4(?) characters in the start of the game (swordsman, archer, spear (?))
3. Gameplay is somewhat similar to Dynasty Warriors/Double Dragon (beat 'em up genre)
4. Pressing O is like unleashing Musou attack (wide area attack)
5. The version we played was Japanese.
6. Through out the level, you could destroy environment elements (boxes, crates) where you'll get meatbuns to recover health.
7. There is a power-up that makes your character mount a horse and makes your attacks more powerful (?)
8. At some point in the game, there's a minigame, where you button-mash your controller when your characters are eating loads of meatbuns and fried chicken(?)

P.S I'm sure it is on Playstation 1, and the version we played was japanese version.

EDIT: nvm, I FOUND IT!!! oh, brings back memories, and yes it was a dynasty warriors spinoff
it's called Tenchi wo Kurau II

Hi guys im trying to remember a great game i used to play and would love to get back into recently got laid off lol
but basically its a bout a boy and his dog they can both level up. You start out in a rocky place you have a bone as a weapon and this dog. There are lots of different areas and places any ideas?
I think it was on playstaion but might have been on Super Nintendo

Hey guys, really appreciate if someone could tell me what my game is.

1. It was a PC game back in the 90's
2. You started with four different types of aliens that look like blobs with color coding.
- Blue: intelligence
- Green: Balance
- Darker Blue: Strength
- Maroon: Agility
3. Its an action RPG game where you have to shoot down bugs
4. These bugs look like the bugs from starship troopers (they were small, and they move in a bunch)
5. I remember the earlier terrain were composed of high rocks and a valley (like a canyon, etc)
6. Mission was to... survive I guess?

Thanks alot, appreciate it!

Secret of Evermore from snes

I remember playing a FPS. It was a good one too, extremely good graphics and gun sounds for it's time.
I think it was set in the Golf War, with the protaganist being questioned while we played the levels, Blops Style.

First level was a short urban level.
Second one had you sneaking through checkpoints during the night.
The was a night harbor level too if I remember.
And one at a powerplant.

suxass:
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" ?

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.

You guys were spot on! Thanks you so much, i've no idea how you worked it out! :D

Planeforger:

An00bis:
Thanks but I don't think this was its name, I'm pretty sure it had a futuristic setting, somewhere on a ship or something, it had room of metal and gates that required keys, the atmosphere was gloomy not colorful and you didn't have spells, just guns, this was the reason why I liked it so much, It was like ut2004 or something, lots lots of guns like 10 or something and every gun was different but I can't remember anything besides the fact that they were plasma guns or laser guns, I think one of them shot lightning as well? The game you mentioned does look nice, almost made me feel bad I didn't play it, it's similar to my game but I'm pretty sure it's not it.

That sounds like it could be the PC game Abuse, but the 'PS1' part doesn't fit. Still, that would be my best guess.

Holy shit! thanks a lot man, that's the game, I watched a few vids on youtube and I'm 100% sure it was it, I remember those spherical turrets and it looks like the bats weren't bats and were instead huge ass aliens that dropped from the ceiling.

Damn I haven't played it in a looong time, thanks again, I've been looking for it for years and I never found any trace of it because I only remembered stuff about it that's very common in gaming: lots of guns, 2d sidescrolling shooter, puzzles like: opening gates with keys and so on, because of that I always found games belonging to the Metroid franchise while I was searching for this one, Abuse. I'm not sure it was on PS1 since when I was little I was very bad with computers and every CRT screen I used to see I considered either a TV or a PC monitor... I hope this was the game the guy I quoted was looking for as well, I'll send him a PM but it looks like he only has 2 posts and has probably forgotten about his account.

Hi everyone!
This is gonna be vague but I'm trying to remember as much as I can. It was a computer game we played in middle school around 2003-2004ish about an Egyptian cat that drinks potions and then turns into different things. I think it was a math game..maybe.

One of the games in The Settlers series perhaps

Janos Tigyi:
Hi there,

There were a great strategy game. It's more than 12-15 years old. I remember I had two Cyclops at the starting, or some people if I choosed human race.

I remember I had to geather wood, stone, food, etc... And build houses and "make" childrens... You know: A male + a female = child... reproduktion... So you could not just buy new soldiers. You had to "make" them...

Sorry about my poor english. :-(

Any idea? There where dragons, cyclops, etc..

Heroes of Might and Magic?

(I suggest this series a lot. One of these days I'll be right)
