This is going to be really vague but here we go:

All I remember is that it was on the PC (Windows 98), third-person, adventure/puzzle game with a male protagonist wearing possibly a blue robe, or just blue clothing. One of his attacks (or maybe just an action) was to throw a yellow ball and it made a strange but distinctive noise when you did so.

One level, or area, seemed to constantly be raining (because of an approaching storm?) and another was sandy; maybe a beach or a desert. The rainy area was a town with several inhabitants, one being a boy who would shoot you with a slingshot.

These details are a little strange but are worth considering; the protagonist may have had a pregnant wife (and a room in his house decorated for a child) and some sort of pet. Also maybe drove a car?

That's really all I can remember.

hi everyone, got a game thats been on my mind for ages and i cant figure it out. its an old top down rpg dungeon explorer type game, and i played it early 2000s on a pc with windows 98 i think. (i live in england btw)
i cant remember any plot but you start off in a small village and after choosing your character (man/woman, i think the usual strength agility etc points but im not really sure) and then go into the mountain to explore the dungeon. theres always the same first room which has a goblin or something in it. as you go deeper you come across more powerful monsters like manticores. you have to keep going back to the village to sell the loot you pick up and buy armour, potions, spells etc.
i cant remember but i think its mostly magic based, you select a spell and point and click to shoot it and the monsters. the first spell you get is a light spell i think. there are also lots of amulets you pick up and can equip.
the dungeon in the game is a sort of grey colour, you cant see far around you so have to move around to see whats on the level your on. there are other colours as well for the monsters and stuff so not just grey and white. i remember it being a very big and confusing game, and it was quite easy to explore too many levels down and get lost.
the really annoying thing is i cant remember if it was a cd game, or one you downloaded.
would reeeeeeaaaaally appreciate it if someone could help me out, im meant to be revising for exams at the moment and have spent hours obsessively hunting for this game so if someone found it you would really be helping my future! lol
ill try and help out with other peoples but most seem to be on the early consoles and i never owned any of them

Try Nox

Hey everyone, there's this PC 3D arcade-like shooter which I've played roughly 9 years ago.
Its kinda futuristic where you're playing as a female protagonist? flying in a air craft and all you've to do is shoot down alien-like space craft and carriers with your left button(twin lasers are the only weapons i remembered).
I remember clearly that the game graphics are in polygons.
1 mission where you're sent down the river of a city (kinda like the river of London Bridge) shooting off some drones and carriers and into the city where more drones emerged, that part of the level is fast pace, lots of turning. The boss of that level have multiple drone like turrets of sort flying around its core.
That's everything i know. Please help me there thanks.

I'm looking for this OLD shareware game I think I played on an IBM 386 on a Novell operating system. It was a 2D platformer with alot of walls and ladders and things chasing you around. My friend thought it might be Clyde's Revenge but it wasn't that. Then I found this game Jetpac that looks really similar but the game I'm thinking of was black and white I think.

Alright guys, I have been trying to figure out the name of this game for years purely out of curiosity. I remember it being about you in a tank and it was on PS1 and you were fighting armies of tanks and soldiers. You were only one color and the enemy army was only one color, I believe it was like green and red or blue and red and it was kind of sci-fi, it was NOT realistic and it was 3D. I can't figure it out and I have looked on so many lists of ps1 games to no avail, if someone could help me with this, it would be amazing. I played it in the late 90s or like early 2000. Also, the view distance was really low and the ground was like barren and brown I believe, the soldiers from you army would run up hills and stuff to attack the enemies and I can;t remember but I think the infantry would break into pieces when they died, but it wasn't an ARMY MEN game or something like that.

I remember playing this game whenever I went to my cousin's house but can't for the life of me find what it is.

It had SNES type graphics. It is a (futuristic?) war game viewed top-down where you build units, missile silos and other buildings. You would then launch attacks & defend from the enemy on who is on the other side of the map.
I believe the view was isometric. I can't remember if it was turn-based or not or had fog-of-war.

Thanks.

Trying to find out the name of this game for yeeeears... It is old roughly from 1995+ (I know not much to go by)
It was a 2d cartoony game in which the camera is in the sky facing down, It isnt side scrolling it is more like one of the first Zelda games.
It was an RPG type game i beleive and i dont remember a huge deal about this game but i do know you play as a purple or blue wizard wearing the normal wizard setup (big pointy hat and robes)
I remember that you collect books that make you stronger or give you new spells or something and there is one boss thats a big ogre and your in a cave, i remember a forest level and a floating castle level. I also remember that in the game there is lamps and you collect new armor and items. If anyone can remember this game i would appreciate it sooo much its a game me and my dad used to play when i was a little boy and i have alot of memorys playing it with him. It was also on the PC and i think it was made after 2000 but i cant be sure.
sorry i dont have more info but will edit if i do, If you have ANYTHING even if you dont think its close PLEASE reply!

EDIT: My dad has told me its a also got some puzzles in it and that it has spiders... (Yeah dad real helpful.. spiders!)

What was the PC game back in 1997 or 98?
I Remember a Computer game It was like army game In begain of the game you Hop on Army Hummer and it would take you to this tower and you hop off the hummer and if you got so close to this tower Missiles would fly at you and you got to shot at the tower to blow it up. It might be called Drome, Dome And it was red cd And it was for the computer

Can someone please tell me if they know what game i am talking about

Okay this is probably a really long shot but I can't remember much about it.

It was a mystery solving game. You were a sister and brother team (I think they were brunettes or redheads, can't remember exactly) and you were solving cases around the town you lived in.

I remember one of the bad guys was a kid named Moriarity ...

It came in a green box with a violet stripe along the bottom, and was either on the old style floppy discs or the newer 3.5 discs... I just remember there was a lot of them.

I wish I could remember more, but it's been over 10 years since I've played it. I think it was played on Windows 3.1.

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!!! That's exactly the one I was looking for. My squeal of nostaligic glee woke my roomate but I don't care! Thanks again!

That almost sounds like Command and Conquer ... They made several that were old style graphics, I know you can download almost all of them in a single pack. Not sure if that is what you are looking for.

I don't remember much about this game as well because it happened in 2001 or 2002, but here it goes.

I remember playing this multiplayer PC game in 2001 or 2002 and it has been bugging me for years not knowing what it is called, This game is we played in our computer class when we weren't supposed to. I think it came with one or two extra CD's for another person to play from another computer to join other friends plin a game where you would try to shoot and kill one another as many times as possible in different locations of your choice.

I don't remember though if there was a time limit. Does this game sound familar to anyone? Does anyone have any clues to what it might be?

There was a game that I have been searching for for days, can anyone help?! A few people already posted info about it but no one responded... Here are the current descriptions:

"There was this random old game they had on the school computers...you got trapped in the body of a kewpie doll and transported to like a fairytale land or something where you had to solve puzzles based on nursery rhymes... anybody else ever play this? This was back in the early nineties..."

"Okay, here's basically the only game from my childhood I haven't tracked down yet. It's a PC game...I think I played it when I was 10, so maybe 16 years old? Might not be quite that old, but around that time frame. It was what you'd call a point-and-click, I guess. It had this rather melodramatic opening about how your character (a little boy) suddenly fell ill or wouldn't wake up or something. Like maybe he was in a coma? And someone (I think a shrink?) said that you/the boy are trapped in your dream world. (This opening was all in text, mind you.)

So when you start playing...everything has this weird, dream-like illogic to it. You start off facing a bar, I think. Typical of point-and-click games, you have to find objects that can be used in certain ways...generally strangely. There was a dock, and I think you found a dead fish there. Pretty sure you found a key in the bar...but it didn't open any doors. There was a sewer you could get down into by greasing a grating with something unusual...I think there was a strange character down there. Everything has this sense of something ominous about to happen.

The last screen I can recall getting to is the edge of this canyon...but there's no way across. At the edge there is a strange plant or flower, and you are clearly supposed to do something to it, but I could never figure out what. Possibly because it was just a demo.

If you recognise this, please help!"

Hey guys,

i've created an escapist account solely because i found this thread and i have 3 particular games from my childhood which i cant seem to find anywhere......PLEASE help if you can

1. A math based, 2d, point 'n' click game where you are a detective of some kind, every time you click an object (chair, mirror, globe, bookcase) an animation which alters the look of the object and an old 8 bit sound happens before a simple math question is posed, which you then answer via typing it in. The background is black, the setting is a house and the graphics are also 8 bit.

2. A math based educational game.... the only thing i can remember about this game is that it too had a black background and used fluro green and pink for its colours.....and a bomb with a fuse slowly burning called "da - bomb" with a koala sitting next to it.

3. The third and final game on this list is solely remembered due to its box art, which is a dragon wrapped around a tall tower holding a massive (red??) gem.

All of these games are late 80's games and i have exhausted all my resources trying to find them.

If there is anyone who can tell me i'm not crazy.... drop a line some time :D

Yoshi_Fan:
I have one that is driving me mad!

My dad had this game for the original PLaystation. It was a RPG and you were a drunken wizard (dressed in Orange I believe) trying to get in better with the wizarding school you attended. So they send you on a quest to kill the dragon that has been looming over the castle spire most of the game. You are solving puzzles and collecting items in the process.

All the characters seem to have british accents and the game is actually pretty funny. But for the life of me I can't remember the darn name.

Also, when you wait for awhile without playing, the wizard guy puts his head right up to the TV and knocks on it and says "Hellllllloooooooo"!

Can anyone help me out?

Thnx.

That sounds like Discworld.

As I remember it that game was rock hard.

I had this problem with a few games recently. I've since remembered them but let's see if you can.

1. Arcade: 3 games in one with elf type dudes in it. The 3 games were a platform shooter, a puzzle game and a top down shooter.

2. Arcade: Side scrolling shooter featuring your pick of 4 cowboys

3. BBC Micro: Platform adventure where you fought things that looked like toothbrushes.

Herzog Zwei? But that was on Megadrive.

I love this thread.

Hey everyone,

I'm new to The Escapist. Found it randomnly while I was Googling for an old pc dos game I was looking for forever. I didn't find it with the forum, but after much more Googling and hours spent on looking for the damn game, I stumbled on this website :

http://www.dosgamesarchive.com/

So for everyone here that still might have photographic memories of the DOS Pc game they're looking for, this site might help !

It sure helped me find my old game :)

Good luck to everyone !! Hope this helps a few people

I hope someone can help with this game ( I'm getting annoyed not knowing the name)
Before you started a match you'd choose a character, every character had their own vehicle. 2 I specifically remember are a girl in a pilot hat driving a tank and a pale man driving a hover craft type boat. In a level you would pick up weapons to damage other drivers. You could get freeze rays, shrink rays (I THINK) and boxing gloves. Those are just some examples. I also remember 2 maps. One was a western type desert village with sandstorms where you could drop a 1 ton weight on people and the other was a space map where you could launch into space before being brought back to the planet. This game was co-op (not sure if it was 2-4). It was ridiculously great for me in my childhood and I'd really appreciate it if someone could get me some help on it.

Edit: I also believe it was a PS2 game or Xbox original game. Again any reply would be greatly appreciated

The name of the game is The Secret Island of Dr. Quandary

I believe you were looking for the same game. It's called The Secret Island of Dr. Quandary

That sounds exactly like Metal Marines.

This has to be the first Dare to Dream.

Solarus17:
I've been looking for a racing game.

I played it around 7 years ago for the PC. *it is not an arcade game*
It's a 2nd person toy racing games with several tracks and toy cars.

Sounds a lot like Toy Racer, although that was for Sega Dreamcast. Possibly it got a PC port?

There is this old game maybe about 10 years ago i used to play. It was allot like Age of Empires cause it was a overhead strategy game where you could build barracks and town halls but, it was monsters lizard men, orcs, stone giants, squid people, and a whole bunch of others like that. and you could go around and find stray monsters that would join you and build a second barracks that built their kind of monsters you could find items that would increase attack or even control on of your enemies opponents. i loved this game and i really hope someone can figure out what it is called i have been searching for it for 2 years.
The Game had several races and these are the ones i remember:
-Humanoid Lizards
-Humans
-Ogres
-Rock Trolls
-An Alien that looked alot like Zerg
-and there is one more but i cant really describe him

i have one for you all, i got a demo off the pack of coco pops when i was younger, it was a pc game, from what i remember it was a wild west game, and it started off with you riding into town on a horse, and i remember at 1 point in the game you can get these green bottles of poison and throw them at people to kill them, thats all i got lol, my memory of the game is hazy at best. sorry guys, hope someone recognises it.

You're thinking of "The Island of Dr. Quandary." A very surreal and unnerving game!

I think by what Dogie Brechina described the game he was talking about that the game I'm try my hardest to explain might also be considered as some kind of war type game. At least I think. I think.

I've been obsessing over the name of this game for a while, I just can't remember and Google is not being helpful at all. Sadly, I can't remember many details either, I think I played it about 15 years ago. It's basically about a boy (I think his name was Anthony, not sure about that...) that helps his aunts on some sort of farm where they grow magical stuff, like mushrooms, I clearly remember collecting mushrooms on some sort of hidden objects part of the game, I'm not sure the whole thing was about hidden objects. There were also some potions and I think they had to sell the potions, I was so young, can't really remember. The title sounds something like "McAnthony's magical farm" in my head, or something along the lines. Thank you for your time and I'm sorry I couldn't be more precise.

LE : I finally found it!!! It's "Big Anthony's mixed-up magic", in case anyone else would come here looking for this tile.

I have a game, it's early 90's. You flew on this monster thing and it crashes, you spend the game trying to solve puzzles and get to it.

Details:

You were this humanoid thing.
It had pretty awesome music.
The flying thing was greenish.

Guys help me!!! I can't remember a game((( All I remember is that u play a woman in red pants and she goes jumping on roofs.

Hi.
