I remember an old flash game that I loved playing it was a puzzle game that had explosions, rolling barrels and fantastic particle physics. the game came to mind about a amonth ago and I've been unable to recal the name of the game or the site

There was this one game I played on a friend's Sega Genesis that for the life of me I cannot remember the name of. It was a pretty basic side scoller beat-em-up. The lead character was a girl, and you could get new outfits to increase certain stats, like this pink dress that would increase your speed by two, and then a mecha looking suit that increase your speed by 10 or something. This was as far as I got in the game because the enemy in that area was very fast.

When I was real young I played a floppy disk game where you pretty much walked through a maze and there were sharks or something (I'm not really sure) All 2d/3d (if you catch my drift) I just remember shittin my pants because of it.

And this one game with winneh the poo (or however you spell that) also a floppy disk game, that was fun as hell.

2 games
1 is an old rts with different races that was cool (sorry can't really elaborate on it more)
2 IS a battle driving game. Think Death race meets Wipeout and unreal tournament, winner gets out of death row. Lots of cool arena and weapons, no idea what happened to it though.

Umm for the RTS maybe Starcraft or Warcraft? they are relativly old and have differant races... or if it was a more unknown one there is Atrox that had 3 races

Sport game that came out on the Genesis and on the SNES. There were a bunch of different events like skateboarding, surfing, hacky sack, snowboarding, BMX, and so on. Such a fun game, me and my brother would always play each other in it.

1.) Dune? They weren't different races though so maybe not.
2.) Twisted Metal? Twisted Metal:Black was the one with the get off death row storyline from what I recall, but the series has been around since the early PS1 era.

Snowboarding? If you didn't mention that, I would have said California Games as it has all the others.. but no snowboarding.

Atrox is probably more to the mark, there were 3 races, with limited troops cartoony-ish 2D graphics

No
for the second one the convicts were always in their respective pod/cars lots of weapon upgrades as you drive around and it was PC

Generator:
The game where you played golf with frogs. A surprisingly fun game for the PS2, with a very good sense of humor, though it was very strange... and pseudo-violent.

It's Ribbit King, I know this because I played it once before on the GameCube and I know that it was on the PS2 also. I also enjoyed this game quite a bit actually and if want to make sure if is the right game I have a picture of the box art in the spoiler.

Anyway, the game I'm trying to remember is this one arcade game that I played when I was a kid at the local arcade near my grandma and grandpa's house in Arizona. It was basically a sidescrolling beat'em up and the first stage was on a pirate ship where you had to face the cook as the boss at the end of that level. I also remeber that one of the characters special attacks was a penguin barrage but that was all I remembered about the game.

That's the one!

It's funny: for such an original game, the title is really rather bland.

I remember playing a game on the NES where your a ninja, marial artist, or something of that nature. I turely loved that game, and what really taunts me is theres this gif running around where he's doing the moves from the game and it looks like he's dancing. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, please tell me.

The first thing that comes to my mind is Double Dragon 2. I suppose you could say the kicks look like dancing. I've never seen the gif. Karate Kid also has an NES adaptation, that could be it. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles obviously has ninjas, but I think you would remember playing turtles.

The game I'm trying to remember is also an NES game. It's futuristic, and you control an airborne ship. It could have been a robot. There were definitely upgrades, and there MAY have been some RPG elements to it, though I really don't remember if I'm just thinking of the upgrade items. It's a side scrolling game. I think the level is always moving, and you need to keep up.

Mm here's a bit of Atrox's Story if it will help

There was this fighting game for the sega genesis that had a bunch of different fighter. It played like Street Fighter, and there was this one dude the laser vision.

Also I remember my dad playing a western shooter a very long time ago. It was pretty much my first encounter with video games when I was about 3. It was on the PC and had something to do with a dog.

i remember all my games, at least the ones i like...

oh yeah i just not too long ago rememberd about doom

I remember this DOS game where you played this old guy with a green shirt, dungeon crawling in isometric view around this tower collecting water to survive, solving puzzles and killing monsters. What I remember most about this one was the game being on floppy disks, the guy's really ugly face and its difficulty.

Been looking for it as long as Die by the Sword now, although the game's older.

YES thats the one. Snowboarding was in the SNES version.

Neither of those, and the game maybe Galaga?, not sure.

PureChaos:
there was a game which i think was on the Mega Drive (Genesis in USA) where you were a ninja and had special moves, one of which was called Fushin which increased your jumping distance, another made you explode and killed anything caught in the explosion. the second level involved platform jumping across a waterfall. it was a side scrolling game, had you fighting a lot of enemies a late level was like a labyrinth with a lot of revolving doors that i never made it passed.

Not sure exactly which one it was, but that's definitely Shinobi (and most likely Revenge of Shinobi, though I'm not sure if it had a different name outside of North America). Could also be Shinobi 3, but the second level of that had you riding a horse not jumping on a waterfall. Both of their final levels had mazes with revolving doors.

it was Revenge of Shinobi. used to love that game. thanks

I remember playing a old NES game. It had a phantasy setting, there where some kind of shops where you could buy new equipment and one of the enemies was a giant dragon, you needed some kind of key to get to him, i think.

There was a PS1 game where you played this weird mecha-rabbit thing, and you had to jump around the levels, bouncing on giant springs and these circles that shot you up really high, and when you were in the air it went to a top-down view of the level. The whole experience, I recall, was very bright. I think it was on a demo CD for PS1... anyone remember the name of this one?

I remember playing a game where you were a time traveling car who went back to prehistoric times, when I was much younger.

I knew someone else who was looking for this game, and the name was on the tip of my tongue but I couldn't for the life of me remember it.
I count this my amends. Apologies to you, whoever you were, that I couldn't remember that the game was: KARATEKA

I've got a strong guess that you're talking about MYSTIC TOWERS.
I remember playing a demo of Mystic Towers and having fun, but never seeing it anywhere else.

Without a doubt: JUMPING FLASH.
More likely the SECOND GAME, but it could have been the first.

Yes! That's it! I played and beat both.

Holy crap it is. You just solved one of my oldest dilemmas yet. :O

That's got to be PUT-PUT TRAVELS THROUGH TIME.

I've got a game on the tip of my tongue, but all I can think of right now is MAGMAX... Could it possibly be SECTION-Z?

This is a pretty weak guess for a pretty broad description, but is it FARIA: A WORLD OF MYSTERY AND DANGER!?

Magmax is definitely on the right track. The gameplay looks about right, and the robot looks similar at the start. However, I'm pretty certain the robot/ship was actually flying the entire time, not just moving up and down on the screen. Also, it had a theme I still remember from the first level, and it sounded nothing like this. Thanks for the help. Let me know if you remember the one on the tip of your tongue.

No, it wasn't top view like in Faria. The view was more like in castlevania i believe.

Can anyone tell me the name of this one...

You play as a star with legs and if I remember correctly his hands were floating limbs so he could reach quite far. It was on Sega Genesis, ahh the memories. Also this game with a circle fellow (literally a red circle) with shades doing things.

Plus this (either n64 or SNES don't remember) game about a bear or something, it reminded me of the honeynut cereal bear but it probably wasn't. If it was for N64 I remember it having an unusually large cartridge, so it was probably for SNES.

Peabob:
For the Megadrive (genesis). It was basically Contra but you played as 1 of 4 Robots.

Its called Probotector, its the PAL version of Contra... kinda, I haven't been able to find a copy or any other way to play it. There is a Probotector on the Wii Virtual Console but it's not the one we are thinking of.

I remember a Ninteodo game that was a side scrolling beat em up type a la Double Dragon which sometimes carried a sword around cutting people in the streets.

Darn MobyGames decided to go down on me!

I'm nearly certain that it's RISTAR.

If it wasn't top view, it was first person? That would have been useful to know.
I'm going to guess SWORDS AND SERPENTS.
Though it has about as much of a chance of being the right answer as BARD'S TALE, MIGHT & MAGIC, WIZARDRY: PROVING GROUNDS OF THE MAD OVERLORD, or WIZARDRY II: THE KNIGHT OF DIAMONDS have.

nope, it was sideview, like in platformers or castlevania

See how many times I can get this wrong- you know what I mean?

Shops + Nintendo Entertainment System + Side View + Fantasy = FAXANADU?
I don't think this game had much in the way of dragons, but I'm running out of ideas, man. Can you throw me any more bones?
