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

Can you describe what the viewpoint was? Was it top down like Star Control? I think there was also a Star Control 2 and 3.

I need your help and your knowledge in old video-games. Actually I'm seeking for an old real time strategy game with three eyed creatures who worship some kind of god. I'm pretty sure it's not Populous. The only thing I can remember is that I played a demo in 1999, but the game maybe released before 1999.

Help will be much appreciated!

I need help finding a game. I don't remember much about it all I remember is your inside a castle and you come across this girl and she is on a table and she has a kinfe in her heart and the only way to get the knife out of her is to fill up this moat. Also I think it might have been an 8-bit game. Thats all I rememeber from this game.
Thanks,
BOB

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

Thank you for the quick reply. However this is definitely not the game I'm looking for.

Do you think it might be Elroy's Costume Closet? The only footage I could find on YouTube is of a different game in the series, Elroy Hits the Pavement. There's also Elroy Goes Bugzerk.


The character is indeed yellowish, and I believe he's looking for his dog, Blue. He also has a sister named Syd.

Ok... its gonna be awkward but here we go :p

I played in somewhere around 90's ( 94-97 cant remember exactly =/ ). Its a SNES game, last I remember it was in japanese so dont get any clue about names, etc. I remember that was a platform game that could be played by 2 players at same time. The Player 1 can only use the main char of the game that shoot like some sparks (little static) from his hair ( o.O ) and the Player 2 can choose ( or each Phase Scenario switch) a diferent char, the 2 chars that I remember is one is some like a ninja that burps like simple attack (lol) or fart has a area skill (rofl), and the other one char is a guy karate looking that throw fireballs and other fire things. Im searching for this game like decades so if someone know what is this creepy thing I apreciate and be forever gratefull for you guys =)

Thanks o/\o

Thank you my friend.

Yeh it is Test Drive 5m I found it

Thank you

Hello! I'm hoping someone can help me because this is driving me insane. I apologize in advance for the lack of description i give. i remember playing a game in the 90s on either our first mac desktop or PC. i believe it was on the PC but i can't guarantee. i'm 30 years old so I believe it was mid 90s. i'm not sure what the genre of game is considered but it's similar to tilt to live or geometry wars as far as modernish games. 2D, you controlled it with your mouse and the point (from what i can remember) was to collect things i think...holy shit as i just typed that i remembered that i think they were numbered billiard balls. at least numbered circles. and you had to avoid "enemies" so to speak. you had obstacles. and you could collect different "shields" i believe (like in tilt to live). like a spike shield, etc. i can hear the sounds when you collected the "balls" (sort of like a ball going into a pocket i think - unless i am confusing that sound with a different game) i think when you finished collecting them you went into a little exit at the bottom of the screen (may have moved in each level and gotten more difficult). i think you had to collect them in order. i know this is very scattered but i feel like that's what it was like. the big thing is i could SWEAR at the end it had the alien quote but altered to say "in space no one can hear you moo"... when i google that all i get is a game available now for the iphone/ipad/etc. called moo maverick.... definitely not it. haha
any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Hi everyone I'm hoping someone can help me here, I've been flipping thru the pages here looking for this game and I've gone thru all kinds of ways of searching.

The game was around the nineties I think, I was about a teenager I believe.

It was a pc Game, third person shooter from what I remember. You were in a black army type suit with black jet wings coming out from both sides of your back. I remember you could jet pack and fly for a while then fall back down.

Also the levels I remember were

1. on a high high building, brown sky and clouds were above and below so if you fell you would die. There weren't many enemies you just walked around I guess I couldn't figure that place out.

2. the next one you spawned on what seemed to be an island, I remember the palm trees, there were also other characters like me and were just shooting at each other, the life bar was around your head a tiny bright green rectangle that then ebbed away as you got shot i think. I recall boxes around there. I remember flying around and trying to kill something.

Damn that sounds very vague but I can't for the life of me remember what this game was called. My uncle had it on his laptop dunno if it came with the package os or what. Please someone help me!

The only thing I could find was Sword of the Stars, but it's from 2006.


On the plus side, this game looks so cool I might have to buy it.
You might want to try looking up the Master of Orion series as well.

An old mid 90s game on the mac platform where you go around the map searching for something (huge and takes a long time and you often punch in coordinates), searching planets, and there are mini battles with alien spacecraft each ship has a different ability (strength/weakness). You can play one on one with a friend and picking different ships until the last one is standing? Any ideas?

Hello everyone,
I am trying to find this game in which you played as a blob or something like that and you were collecting eggs that were used for shooting. I think that they looked like easter eggs and there was four of them. Also, the blob could bounce off the walls and it was carrying these eggs to some old man. I remember that there was a swamp level and some kind of power plant. Ufortunatelly that's all I can remember about it, but if anyone would recognize it, that would be great, because I am looking for it for so long and I really want to play it again.
Thank you!

Hi, I'm trying to find the name of this old game.

It is similar to Zelda I think in terms of game style. This is what I remember from the game:

You start in a small cave next to a town by coming out of some chamber or time travel device thing. You fight with a single hero that uses a sword. The sword can be upgraded into a wind, fire, ice, lightning sword. Each type can be upgraded 3x I think so you can charge and file more powerful attacks. The first thing you do is leave north of town to fight gorilla and slime looking monsters. You have to find a sleeping man in a cave and get some potion to wake him up and power up the windmill to open up another cave. The first boss in that cave is a witch looking thing that teleports around and attacks you with bats.

Can anyone tell me what was the name of this game? It was 2D also.

I remember a game that was very similar to Zelda, you played as a blonde guy with a blue cape or shirt, your weapon was a sword but I recall that you can use other types of weapons as well like magic. It was top down, with somewhat basic graphics and you started out in a forest in your house if I recall correctly, I think it was shareware or what we would call indie today, this was back in the late 90's by the way.

Found it, it was called the shadow of power.

I remember playing a pc game in the late 1990's/ early 2000's where you were a wizard and you went around killing monsters. I am pretty sure it was the main game on a disc that had a lot of other little games on it. I remember that you could get like 9 different spells, and for like the 7th or something you could choose between a room of coins and the spell book.. I might have gotten it from sending in box tops from cereal or something (but im really not sure about that).

Can't remember this old game I used to play on the old windows computer between 1994 and 2000 I think.

I'm sure there was 2 guys that you controlled on a very pixelated environment and they had weird names maybe. It was more or less a point and click style game where you had to go around and do certain things with different objects to progress to the next area or screen. I'm sure the setting for the game was medieval of some sorts. For some reason I keep thinking of a giant or a cyclops blocking a path or object and maybe he was sleeping in the first few stages of the game. I also remember a flying Nymph in a part that flew into a house of some kind and you had to help her somehow. But as far as that, that's about all i remember about the game. Hope someone can help.

I was listening to that walkthrough and it sounds like all of the Elroy games are now super rare. The player had to buy his copy on eBay. Good luck man, I hope you can get your hands on it!

I can't remember the name of the set of many games, which consists of Mause maze, tanks, "classic bulldozer game" and many others. It was released on Windows 98. Can someone help me?

i cant remember of the games of the (ps1)red and blue disc i think it was a demo disc . . i am certain that it was a rpg game ... pls someone help me ..

Please help me find this game. I cant find it at all.
The game is old, like 1995-2000 years I think. and similar to Trine, braid, limbo and so on. its ant action side-scrooling game. Main character is a Cat, equiped with sword and pistol. you collect all kind of food, treasure, and so on. you have to fight vs dogs, there are 7 i think chapters each with final boss you have to kill and take his GEM to complete the game ypu have to collect all gems from bosses(dogs) . the puzzles of how to get some treasure is very hard, its much much harder than trine.
also, you have some several Lifes, you can get more when you collect treasure.

any thoughts?
sorry by my english..

Hey man!
I have been looking for this game for quite a while, and seeing your post gave me some hope it actually existed lol.
After a lot of research, I googled ' snes game "out of his hair" attack ' and suddenly it all came clear :)

The game is GeGeGe no Kitarou, there is a video in youtube "GeGeGe no Kitarou (SFC) level 1" which can confirm it for you!

Best regards,

Hello.

I remember playing a naval-ish game where you can play as different units. If I am correct you can play as a boat, submarine, and a stationary naval base defending itself. I believe this game is from the mid-early 2000s, your objective is to shoot down enemy planes, bombers, etc. Graphics were kinda good aswell.

Also, the game is 2D and for the PC.

Any ideas?

Sounds like Claw or Captain Claw.

Hi all I'm looking for two games. Both on the ps1. My memory is not great but il try my best to picture you guys a good mental image.

No.1 you're a boy or a small man with purple hair and green trousers. Running from left to right in a jungle like backround .I can remember jumping on big round pink flowers and the character would turn really small. It was very cartoony and had lots of colours. I remember one level walking on a red house.

No.2 also on the ps1. You were in a spaceship flying left to right and I dunno if you we're a baby or not. Your space ship could shoot and you had enemy's approaching from the opposite side. Had a boss at the end of each level. Was two player and I think the player space ship colours were green and pink/red. Bright blue background with clouds and fun music

Best of luck and thanks for reading

I was playing this game about 7-8 years ago. Its some kind of a mind game. First level (i think) beggins with scene of a flying helicopter above the sea, probably, but then a helicopter craches at some island and all over you are mountains. First thing you need to do is to pick up some useful stuff from helicopter and then you find a way to go through the mountain,with no coming back. Then, i think its a 2nd level, you are at some beach and there you have to find another things, some to combine with others, some not, but there are 2 caves, one with some thing that blows air, and you need to do something with it and another cave contains some puzzle you have to decode. Puzzle is on a big round door, i think, and the whole cave looks like abbandoned mine. I couldnt solve the puzzle, so thats everything i remember. :) Game reminds me of a Broken Sword, somehow, maybe it is, maybe its not, i cant find it. If anyone recognize this game, please tell me, i would like to try it again. :) Game is for PC.

That sounds a lot like Tomba, maybe Tomba 2

Oh man, there's so many side-scroller space shooters out there, even for PS1. Are you sure it was co-op? Because that would rule out R-Type Delta, Einhander, Gradius Gaiden, etc.

Any more details you remember like strange weapons?

Okay, I just was hoping to get help with this since it's been tearing me apart trying to remember the name of this old PC game I used to play when I was a kid. Talking late 90's for the most part(Possibly/MAYBE early 2000's. The game was somewhat like a combat simulator, but it played like a RTS where you could hop into other vehicles such as tanks, jets, helicopters, and the like. It was futuristic and post apocalyptic. There were 3 races that you could play as and they were color-coded as blue, red, or yellow. The blue team had tanks and jets as their primary vehicles. The red team had helicopters as their primary vehicles, and the yellow had alien spacecraft as their primary vehicles. The campaign of the game had you playing solely as the blue team and you always had a base that you could man turrets at. Never could you get out of your vehicle. It was straight up vehicular combat. Ummm, what else? Oh, I would usually remember this one female commentator voice that would warn you whenever your base was under attack, she sounded like an AI with a british accent. Sorry if the details are poop, but it's really all I can remember from this game. Oh and the title was made up of two words I believe. Anyway, thanks for the help if anyone can figure this out. Any thoughts or ideas as to what the game is called would be much appreciated.
