Zulenka:
Looking for an old crime based game that definitely had 90's graphics. You were a little graphic man in a big city that had stores, car buying places, etc etc. I found it odd that you could kidnap kids and then sell them to a restaurant for money as slave labor...It was disturbing.

When you robbed a store you had to go through this maze to avoid the police. My friend gave it to me on a CD or something.

For the record I found it. Game is called Crime Fighter.

Hi guys, trying to remember a game i played back in the 90's. It was on the PC and on a CD. The game features two brothers, one dressed in blue and the other in red. You controlled the blue one while the computer controls the red one. It's a puzzle game, with all sort of challenges, I remember there being a battleship, and peg solitaire being one. The point of the game is to collect clues of the princess' location throughout various points on the map. I think the blue brother's name stated with a H and the other brother started with a P (I keep thinking its Hogi and Pogi). If anyone knows the name of this game, I would greatly appreciate it!

Hello guys, new here, glad that something like this exists. :)

I have one that's been driving me crazy. I think it had a generic sort of name, maybe Quest or something similar. Played it on a PC very long time ago. I remember it being very rudimentary, top down, 2D and character was represented by only a head that you can move around, I also remember the enemies being just heads too, like a skeleton skull type of thing... You went around through, I'm guessing randomly, generated levels, beat on monsters, collected loot and that's about it, as far as my memory serves. I googled all types of names, and strings of words, looked at any amount of old game images but no luck... Hope someone played this and remembers the name...

That definitely sounds like a 'Roguelike', although I can't think of any of those games that illustrates just the heads of the enemies.

Still, that might be the subgenre/term you need to find the game.

I've been looking for one for absolute ages! I played it on a very, very old PC when I was still a very small me. The main interface was actually an explorer's journal, you flipped through the pages and completed puzzles on them... Some of the puzzles I remember were putting together an old flying machine out of various parts like a puzzle, guiding a caterpillar through a maze so it could chew a code in to a leaf, collecting various pictures like a hermit crab out of its shell (it had been living inside of a tape recorder, which you needed to record the voice of a parrot), playing solitaire in a dark cave to retrieve a set of gems, building a paddleboat and sailing it down the river avoiding arrows, and numerous others. I swear there were two games I had from the same series, and one of them focused on helping a small lizard escape from an island. The whole time, you were guided by the voice of the male explorer whose journal you were working in. I NEED to find this game! I've lost sleep over this thing!

I used to play a game with clay like monsters of different colours of different clans...They could use gloves and clubs to hit each other, and use a straw to suck the dead clay monster. was a fun game...can't remember its name

Gruntz?

I've been trying to remember this one for ages. I remember it had something to do with jewels, and I think stealing them but I'm not sure. Played it on PC, late 90s/early 2000s. Top-Down, 2D, tile-based puzzle game. I know there were blocks that could block (pun not intended, but convenient) your path that were yellow and circular, and the player and other special elements of the level were also represented by colored geometric figures.

Hi guys,

I too have registered on this forum (even though I often browse Escapist) to find some help in a game I can't remember.
The trick is, because it was a Japanese Family Computer tv game with all the titles in Japanese, I'd have no way of knowing what the name of it was, but if anyone could suggest some possible names, I'll look them up and let you know.

So it was a Japanese (or Asian, I'm not sure) Family Computer game. It was an adventure platform game with bright summery colors ala Adventure Island - blue skies, green trees etc. The only defining thing I can remember about it off the top of my head to differentiate it was that there were these weird pink bubble things with eyes that would kill you if you touched them. They almost looked like pink speech bubbles with eyes but they were evil. Lol
Also, the picture on the cartridge was of young kids flying up towards the viewer basically, I think.

That's all I got. Anyone have a clue?

Hi again guys, doesn't really no one know mine? You can't imagine how a person can't be this desperate from not knowing the name of a game like me, lol. :(

Here are hints from my original post.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I remember it was a gameplay trailer, or more it felt like a technological demo, showing off an engine without any HUD (ammo, health etc). I think I saw it between years 2006-2007. It was a First Person Shooter set in some sandy town which felt like Egypt, Turkey or Iraq, the place where it was happening looked like this - http://bit.ly/1btublC ... you know this kind of a building structure, I also remember that there was a little sandstorm going through that place, enemies were all over the place - on roofs, on balconies, in alleys, enemies were also wearing this on head - http://bit.ly/1d1D1xO ... person which you controlled could lean over objects, was holding and shooting from a weapon which looked like FN-FAL - http://bit.ly/1cvMngh or HK21 - http://bit.ly/1hL3YaZ ... at least I think, and in a background was playing some kind of an orchestral Arabian/Turkish felt-like music. I don't even know if that game was released or cancelled, or if it was just some kind of a technological demo, and I also don't know for what platforms it was made for. Can't remember more.

I'm fairly sure that's Command and Conquer Generals, (http://bit.ly/Ih8Cx3), or it's expansion Generals: Zero Hour (http://bit.ly/Ih8E8e). Zero Hour is my favorite C&C game, but there are others, the only other most similar to that is C&C 3: Tiberium Wars, in the sense that it has the same playstyle in a different command and conquer Universe (there are 3, bit.ly/Ih8P3n). The old games (Command and Conquer, and Red Alert) are hardly worth playing, but the "Isometric" ones (Red Alert 2 and Tiberian Sun) are quite playable and challenging yet fun. I didn't mention any expansions, but they've all got ups and downs. I'm kindof an expert on C&C, PM me if you want more information or want to play together!

Nodai: Your trolling is not helping me.

The game i'm trying to find was on Ps1. All i can remember about it is that the main character is blonde and fights are random encounters where you can only move left and right on a single line. You level up and learn new skills as you go. I could of swore it started with a "C" but i havn't found it looking though lists. Hope someone knows what i'm talking about.

I have a game I used to play on my mac back in the mid 90's... You move a paddle just like in breakout, except you can move it pretty much anywhere on the field with your mouse and the ball is attached to it with a wire. I played only a demo, but I remember it being in a sandy universe; the bricks you break would crumble into dust. You would also get different power ups, like the ball circling around faster or doing more damage. I always thought the name of the game was Bolo, but I searched hard for it and no success. I looked at all the games on the macgarden site and it's not there.

Help me with this please, I know someone will know this game!!!

Edit: I found it http://theodor.lauppert.ws/games/bolo-dos.htm It is really Bolo, I found this picture, but I have no idea where to find the game, so if anyone finds one please share :)

I can't remember what its called but I think it came out in the late 90s or early 2000s, it was a top down game where you played as what I think was a human in some kind of room where certain parts of the floor are certain colours but you can only go on to other colours with a brick that has both colours in what I think was a diagonal line, and you had to collect something that I think opened a door. It was on pc but thats all I can remember, please help me, I've been wanting to replay the game for ages but I can't remember it and its killing me!!

AGD4:
Hey all. I'm looking for a pc game from around 1995, possibly '94 or '96.

It is a sort of isometric, semi-3D top down view adventure game set in a dystopian future. I vaguely recall starting off in a prison where your character explains that he was arrested for the dreams he had.

I recall the main weapon was actually a yellow ball that you'd hurl at targets and it bounced around.

I wish I could remember more. Thanks a million in advance!

That's the first Little Big Adventure.

Ah mah ghad! That's the one. I somehow knew of it as "relentless" though, as it's sometimes called within various google search results.

Sorry for the late reply but thank you so so much! I'm now ten parts into a 68 part nostalgia trip on YouTube.

Star Ocean 2? ( http://youbentmywookie.com/wookie/gallery/0209-star-ocean-second-evolution/star_ocean_2.jpg )

Hi I know it's a long shot.. But does anyone remember a computer game that I played online. It was a platform game in which I was a cube and I think I had to use my shadow.. And there was a woman. I just remember clearly that at the end you realize that you or the man lost his wife or gf and was actually imagining everything in order to get over her or a way to deal with his lose. I really hoping to find it cause it was a very nice game and had very good ending.

Hello!

I remember a cool game but I dont know what its name is :( I kept searching it, but found nothing. Than i found this site ^^
So i am searching for an old game which runs on Win XP, its a survival game. Its top down wiev, and the game is about that many monsters came, and you have to survive it. If i recall correctly you can controll only a single person, and there were no vehicles. The map was square (not sure :S ), and there were power ups like nuke, that destroys everything near you in a radius. I cant recall any monsters, but one which is a big spider, and when you kill it, it multiplies, and that that one too. The big version of that spider is slow, but the small ones are very fast. If you kill the small ones, they just die, they wont multiple forever.
The game is like Darkwood and Teleglitch. It wasnt 3d at all. And there were no places, just an open field. My brother played this game like 10 years ago.
I would be so happy if someone could write donw that games name. Its not super important, but it would be cool :)
Ty for help; Fry

Hmmm... Its maybe "i maed a gam3 w1th z0mb1es" but its an Xbox game, and i dont remember that the map would change. Also there werent any enemies like in this. :S

Yes exactly!

Thank you very much :)

Hey!
So I played this game in the late 90's/early 2000's. It only needed 2 floppy disks. It was a 2D platform shooter with a winter/christmas theme. 2 players could play it. The 2 characters were red and blue. You could jump around and use all kinds of weapons (RPG, SMG, grenade etc.) Also the characters had jetpacks. There were something like 10 levels some with water on it. The characters had a hat like this ( http://www.digitalsydney.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Santa-Hat.jpg ).

Hello, I used to play this game as a kid on the Sega...I think it was Genesis (Mid ninties)...In game you played as an undead guy with 2 swords, and torn up gear, skin was gray, the hubworld had a black background...it was a side scrolling gothic game, one of the levels I remember was a swamp, you could do a spinning move in the air by jumping and attacking..anyone know it? I also think the title screen was a closeup of the main character (But I could be wrong).

Hey everyone
I am looking for a PC game I used to play a lot when I was a kid.
The game is an action side scroller with decent graphics...you can either play as a man or as a monster.
you have to collect car parts and when you finish the level the game shows the car and the parts you collected so far on it(IE you collected tires and the game will show the car with new tires)
I also remember you could get poisoned and that some of the levels took place in a sewer.

thanks in advance!!!

No but that's a fantastic game.

hello everyone, can anyone help with this one?.

a long time ago, i used to play a game with my father on the PC, the things i remember are that the icon for starting it was a pawprint, it was based mostly in a forest, with red skinned men that attacked you, and somehow or another there were power ups, letting you control one of three creatures, a large, red bearlike creature, a bipedal boar monster with a bladed staff weapon, and an odd spinning disk flying through the air.

there was also a city, i don't remember much about it other than that you could enter a sewer or subway station or something, it was long, dark tunnels, filled with silver monsters that resembled xenomorphs (those aliens from the "Aliens" franchise) with four legs and two arms.

Death Rally? ( http://www.giantbomb.com/death-rally/3030-18044/images/ )

Yo! I am trying to find this game for ages and this game was an awesome FPS where at the 1st stage you would walk around and I think raptor looking creatures will attack you and you have to shoot them and then you come across this village which is under attack I think? then you kill the creatures and proceed to the next stage where I think a crocodile was there and a beach ball and if I recall there was also a picture of a village getting ready to be attacked by centaurs on the stage select.

Yes this is it, you 're the man! THANK YOU!

Edit: Omg there is a remake :P

Hi thanks but it is not Rampage.

It is a vertical scrolling game where you control the dinosaur/Godzilla-like character.
This is a coin op game if I'm not mistaken is from the mid to late 80s.

The first button is to shoot laser beams and the second button makes the dinosaur blow fire (which can repel certain enemy fire).

Help anybody?

So nobody can help me get my game huh.... I know it is a hard game to know the name of :c

Can someone literally help me with the game I am trying to find?!
