I remember a game about a grape.
It's a really fun point and click game.
I only remember that in the beginning there was some kind of box
(oh and also that in the end there was some kind of missile firing, a BOOM! and THEN there was a grape in the box's place).
HELP ME!!

Hi guys, have a hard one to figure out, but I'm hoping.

This is a really old PC game, I was really young so I don't remember much, and what I do remember, I don't know if it's totally accurate or not. I believe it was a point and click, a brother and a sister solving mysteries and I think they had a dog as well. For some reason, I think they had a yellowish type skin color but I'm not sure at all, really cartoony graphics.

The biggest hint is the demo disk I played of it. The demo disk had Battle Arena Toshinden, Big Red Racing, Knight's Chase, and of course this game on it.

Any ideas please let me know.

Thanks.

This game is one that I and my brother remember playing A LOT when we were younger and we've been trying to remember the name of this game for over 3 years now!
Platform: The game was on PlayStation 1 or 2 or the Original Xbox.
Genre: The game was a platformer.
Release: I'm unsure of the release date but I and my brother played it back In 2001 I believe (We were roughly 4-6 years old).
Perspective: The game was 1st or 2nd person and was definitely 3D.
Plot/Goal: Not the slightest clue 
Memorable Moments:
Running towards the camera jumping over blocks with a 'face' made of flames - much like a Bowser (Mario) sprite.
A boss fight involved a Hand (Like the one in Super Smash Bro's: Melee

) made of multi-coloured blocks.
This was followed by another hand (opposite hand) fighting you together.
Followed by the two hands and a head (All made of them multi-coloured blocks).
A helper/tutorial person (Much like E-gadd in Luigi's mansion) appearing through a television.
This television could possibly be within the protagonists head (Vary hazy memory).
A main stage area with portals to levels (Again vary hazy - The main stage is like the one in Crash Bandicoot).
NOT Multiplayer (What games were back then xD)
Quite a happy overall mood.

If you've read all of that thanks a lot, ANY suggestion will be helpful. If you do find any and can be bothered, please email me at: turkeyworldofwarcraft@outlook.com (Yes it's bad - gaming email haha)

I had this one game, and I can't remember very much about it, but..everytime you entered a room, there was a new enemy to face. The thing I remember the most tho is at the end, or close to the end of the game, you had to run down a long hallway from a giant blue dinosaur like monster. Any help??

I believe you're looking for Skull & Crossbones.

I am looking for a game that starts out with a boy trying to build an airplane. it is a ps1 or ps2 game. I THINK IT IS A ROLE PLAY OR ADVENTURE GAME. He builds a ramp to fly off, and the first time he crashes. The second time he makes it the plane flys over the woods.

There was a game that I used to play on the PC that I think was set in hell. Each time you started with a character chosen at random, and you had to kill every other character in the level to advance. The characters were a soldier, a ninja, a boy with a jetpack, an alien just like the one from the movie alien, some kind of werewolf monster and a robot. I may be forgetting one or two characters. Each character had a different default attack and skills, like the ninja could climb walls and the jetpack boy could fly, and then there were several weapons and power ups scattered throughout the level.
The levels were randomly generated, and the weapons and power ups would pop up at random times. I remember some of the power ups were drugs that had different effects on you, like crack which would make you faster, but if you took too many you would die of an overdose. The graphics were 2D, not too detailed.
If someone can help me find out the name of this game, I would be truly grateful.

I believe this game was identified by voodoomoocow in another request about a month ago:

voodoomoocow:

This is Eagle Eye Mysteries and you can play it for free on DosBox http://www.abandonia.com/en/games/27927/Eagle+Eye+Mysteries.html

I just found it, it's called XEvil =D

Hey guys! Hopefully I can give enough content for someone to identify this game for me.

So, I remember playing this game non-stop during the late 90's maybe even early 2000's. I was very young.(im 18 now)
I remember it was a game on playstation, or ps2 (not sure) and it was definitely a game that contained robots. Not really mechs, but a robot that acted more like a human being. And you would use specific patterns on your remote to execute moves and shoot weapons on your robot.
I feel like the robot you played as was either piloted or controlled by kids. One specific memory that I have that may help to identify the game is during a cut scene, two kids possibly teenagers, were tied up together and being held captive. They were shouting for help to the boy that you play as, then all of the sudden a big robot steps (Or something very large just drops on them) on them and you witness your friends being crushed. Kind of sad, but that was a memorable scene.

Thanks! Can't wait to finally remember what it was called.

It's a long shot, but this sounds like Zone of the Enders http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zone_of_the_Enders_(video_game).

Krzysztof Zimorski:
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 that this game had a some sort of an option where you could watch an endless fight between 2 camps of robots which probably would never end. And that's a PC game.

Please help me, I'd like to make an let's play of it.

Holy cow Fizzy you managed to figure that one out quickly ^_^ I KNEW it had something to do with pirates! Completely forgot it was a Tengen game but I remember some Tengen games growing up for the nes being some of my favorite titles like Super Sprint, thank you very much for figuring that out for me =D Funny how strong the imagination really is, I seem to remember the graphics for this game being just a teeny bit better which is why I thought maybe it was on genesis/snes like the early days (warriors of the eternal sun is one game I thought was on nintendo when I couldn't figure out it's name for years and years and then later realized it was for the early genesis which in those days didn't have much better graphics than the nes/sega master system), but I also thought I remembered the shoes being animated when the person walked instead of them just sort of floating to the left or right, haha ^_^. Going to have to play this game some more, I would have never figured it out on my own because the 2player mode isn't even on the main screen... you just have to press start while playing it to get another person in the game.

Thank you again for figuring it out, there was another game that I could never remember from my youth around that same time on nintendo and I know this game was on nintendo but I sort of gave up looking because I can't remember enough details and I doubt anyone would be able to figure it out without naming a bunch of games. I would probably remember it if I saw it but it wasn't a game that was well known, I just remember renting it when I was a very young kid before I was 6 which would've been before 1991. I believe it had more than one character you could select or you had multiple characters in your party, I'm leaning towards the first one though. It was medieval setting with knights/wizards I think, I remember on the back of the box seeing pictures of the game like sort of lanes of stone blocks you would go through and explore I think searching for keys and killing mobs.. It's really hard to remember too many details for it but for some reason I seem to remember black backgrounds and going through levels that were inside. Anyway, I don't expect anyone to figure it out but if people have ideas and just want to throw some game names out there I can look them up and see if any of them are what I am looking for. Thank you again Fizzy!

P.S. Before I forget there is one game that someone might be able to figure out..it was a game but then again it sort of wasn't. Most of the games I played in my youth were for the Commodore 64 because I had one of those along with a Nintendo growing up in Chicago..alot of the games for C64 I finally figured out the names for like Matterhorn Screamer, Seven Cities of Gold, The Eidolon...this one I could never figure out the name for but it was REALLY simple. Basically it was a game you loaded from big floppy disc, you basically had like a screen like a background you could choose I think, and you would get a library of sortof like crappy 2d atari quality gifs to choose. You would basically just choose different like items/gifs/pictures and place them throughout a pre-rendered backgroud. This game I remember being very crude but I had alot of fun with it in my youth just sort of making pictures and seeing how they would turn out. No idea what it would've been called because it's so obscure but maybe someone else remembers this..

You're quite welcome. I know it sounds obvious, but it sounds like you're looking for Gauntlet. I'm guessing that there are at least 20 versions of that game floating around from the past 30 years.

=O Well Gauntlet was one of those Tengen games from my childhood that I loved but the medieval game I was searching for wasn't it, from the vagueness I remember it did have stone blocks like Gauntlet but I believe it was not from a birds eye view it was more platformer based. I could be wrong though, that's why I doubt I'll ever be able to figure it out because it was so long ago and I remember such very little details. I knew for one it was on Nintendo though but it seems like there are just so many games for that system you can look for one and almost never find it. Feels the same for Commodore 64 sometimes too.

Hey,

Maybe anyone will remember this game from around 1994-1998 (I think):
It was a space travel adventure game of sorts. I don't recall any space combat. You would go to space stations to trade. The interior of space stations was prerendered 3d (animated, seemed to be very well done for that time) and very funky/cheesy futuristic look. I recall a space-supermarket as well.

Cheers

Wing Commander?

No, that's not it. Less space combat, more cheesy characters I think.

here's mine, it was a old game i played sometimes around 1996-2000 it feels like. The main characteristic that i remember is that you could pick your character from the hands of a giant skeleton in the background. There were 3 characters, a dwarven fighter with an axe(green), a conan like character(blue) and a Xena like woman amazonian like character(red). The game was in 3D but played from side view and you had to kill waves of mobs on each new screen as you moved forward trough the level. You could ride dragons if you knocked down foes down from them is another thing i remember. Unfortunately that's all i have to go on so any help would be realy appriciated :)

Cheers

100% sure the game you talk about is Golden Axe

This game I have trouble remembering was a point and click type of game. I remember it was a little spooky, there was an area with a road and trees next to it where you'd see the headless horseman. There was an area with gallows and I remember the goal being to get into a castle, where I think there was a vampire. I am not so sure about this one, but I think you had to collect gems at the castle to open some door. It was a long time ago(6+ years), for the PC and it might have been a kids game.

King's Quest 7 had a headless horseman, but no vampires that I can remember.

Nope it is not King's Quest. Call it luck but I managed to found out the game I was looking for is Dracula's Secret. I looked for it a few months ago by the term Dracula, but that didn't give me any useful results, but luckily someone recently auctioned the game and thus 1 entry showed up at google :)

I was Ninja'd! Cool man, welcome to The Escapist.

A while back I came here looking for an arcade game called The Ninja Warriors, but I ended up having to find it myself. I really like this thread because [in trying to find games for other people] I start learning about old games I never heard about before.

Hello, I'm hoping someone on here can help me. I've been thinking about this game for a while but I don't remember what it's called or what console it was on (I'm thinking Snes, PS1 or PS2) The only thing I remember about this game is that the main character used a gun (I think) and when you got a new one you could use the old one to upgrade the new one to make it stronger and/or more features (I believe you could also find parts around the world as well). Also I remember a side quest involving collecting insects (maybe just Beetles) and some were stronger than others to use in Fights against other computer opponents insects/Beetles...Sorry, I know this isn't much help, I know it's not very old (made in the last 10 years) I appreciate any help.

Edit: Found it myself today, it's called Rogue Galaxy!

OK guys I will be very thankful if some1 can tell me the name of the game i remember playing it like in the 2000's anyway the game is 2D all I remember was that your main characetr can summon minions like skeletons zombies etc. but in order to do that he had to stay on some kind of a altar which regenerates his mana(or whatever energy he uses to summon) also i remember that the HP bar was something like the head of your character which skin peels when you take damage and the skull is revealed and when u heal up you get it back ( i remember eating apples ) The 3 level was in a swamp with very powerfull crockodiles. You can unlock and change the units you are able to summon in the menu of the game .. I hope that's enough info:)
Thanks

Its a long shot, but you could be mish-mashing together aspects of Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons & Oracle of Ages.
In the opening of ages, Nayru is singing, but the screen turns dark and she is taken away by Veran. Soon after you travel back in time to chase after her. The guy in the wizard hat, Ralph, is also looking for her, and sometimes helps you.


In the opening of seasons, Din is dancing, but the screen turns dark and she is taken away by General Onox in a tornado. You attempt to save her but are blown away. Later, you acquire the rod of seasons and can change the seasons by standing on a tree stump and swinging it.

There are so many similar points of interest to your description, but for all i know i could be way off and there might be a NES game that matches your memory perfectly.

i just found out what the name of it was, Hype: time quest, but thanks for trying apreacite your help

Thank you very much kind sir :)

Hello everyone, I have been trying to find out the name of an old MS-DOS CD ROM or DOS CD ROM game that I had when I was a kid for the longest time and have had no luck or leads. All I can remember is that it was and educational game and the only areas of the map I can remember going in were the pet shop and the grocery store and you had to do little tasks in each one. There were more areas but I couldn't go in them because I only had the demo of the game. The main character was a dog who wore a backwards baseball cap and a t-shirt, his name was sammy and he alwase said "Steller bud" whenever you did something right or completed a task. If anyone could help me out in any way i'd greatly appreciate it.

Hello folks, please help to remember 2 games I played between 1994 and 1998.

Game 1

Platform: PC
Estimated dates: 94-1997
Dimension: 3D
Windows: Windows 95
Game type: 3rd Person

Description:
All I remember is that it was really dark and Scary game. You start in a dungeon, I remember it was really gore and scary.
I think the you start fighing against Skeletons in the first level.
VERY IMPORTANT DETAIL:
There was an Arena mod in the game. You choose an Arena ( I remember a place with lava and a place gap on side so if you fall, you die) - Then you choose any characters from the game, even monsters and you fight in the Arena.
I remember 1 beast I played in the arena mod. It was a monster, maybe a giant instect. It had very long and powerfull arms but slow ones. I always won by pushing the opponent in the lava or in the gap.

Has anyone played this game please ?

Game 2

A totally different Game, it was a racing car game.
I only played the demo ( along with populous: the begining)

Platform: PC
Estimated date: 1997-2000
in 3D
Windows: Windowns 98
Game type: Racing car game within towns.

I remember and very colourful game with cars. I remember you always drive within town against other cars. In the town, I belive there were non-racing cars that you have to avoid. When you pass a certain point, there were some police cars chasing you. I remember that at some point you could drive on staircase and the town might San Franciso.

Best regards,

Alex

Great thread, perhaps someone will help me here.

I remember this game very vaguely since I've played it like 10-15 years ago on PC. It was action-adventure title. It started with a lot of dialogue from first person perspective (it was in english). You moved your character from top-down perspective on world map and when you encontuered an enemy it reverted to 2D from the side. What I remember the most was alien world and magic. You acquired new spells by collecting colorfull orbs and drawing them from a board in cities. Yeah, I know it is not much but I dont remember any more. I've checked various old game and abandonware sites and never seen anything like this.

Possibly could be Midtown Madness? Or a Need for Speed of some sort.

A scrolling space shooter that my dad gave me, he got it free with a magazine.

Enemies were 3d Sine Mora style, but less detailed.

Dragon Warrior II? You mentioned multiple characters ( la Sorcerian, which was one of the Dragon Buster games). But then it could be Dragons of Flame, or perhaps one of the Dragon Slayer series, or even Dragon Power (a.k.a. Dragon Ball: The Secret of the Dragon).

I only included those last few games to up the dragon-count of this post. Sheesh there were a lot of dragon-titled games for the NES. Have a look at the Dragon Slayer series - they were the most popular on a range of platforms, including NES.

Other (non-dragon titled) NES games:
Faxanadu*, Legacy of the Wizard*, Hillsfar**, Magician.

*Dragon Slayer title
**Dungeons & Dragons title.

Hey guys, I created an account to see if anyone can help me in remembering the name of a game I played when i was younger. It must have been the late 90's early 00's when i played it on PC i don't remember much about the game but have been searching for the name for ages.

Here's what i do remember, you play as a native american in some sort of dream like world where you are able to take off and fly by spreading out your arms at the press of a button, i remember there being platforms in the sky you could fly to and a big structure in the centre of the sky you could enter. This is all i can recall of the game itself if anyone knows what it is please let me know as it bugs the hell out of me trying to remember the name.

EDIT: Looks like I didn't search hard enough before as i found the name right after submitting this. If anyone was interested the name of the game was Dreams to Reality

Double posted sorry

Triple posted and cant delete the comments :/ sorry

PuffinBox:
The game was basically a flight sim in space
I played this around 8-10 years ago on an old PC I think it was a demo of the full game

-controlling a spaceship fighting aliens
-It gave you a big space to where to fight missions
-I remember two missions that were blowing up a bigger spaceship and protecting your base from attacks
-also you had AI partners that you could shoot
-The color palette was basically black and green
-you had to lock in on enemies and shoot missiles or use your plasma guns
-they gave you a list of every ship in the current mission whether they be friend or foe (on the bottom left)
-Your AI partners and the aliens also had voiced lines

hey guys please I really want to know the name of the game described above. I think it was on windows 97-99 PLEASE PLEASE
