Petaarr:
I remember playing a game on Playstation 2. It was a fantasy game, and i seem to remember there being about three classes to pick from. There was a rogue-ish class [maybe a woman?] who could step into shadows and become invisible, cant remember the other two classes. You had to kill monsters, and i vaguely recall the disc box having a somewhat red cover.
Cannot for the life of me remember what it was called, but i think i got it about 2004/2005 if that's any help?

Any ideas? :)

PsychoRacoon:
I think u might mean The Adventures Of Alundra... Note, there's 2 alundra games that r completely different so make sure u look for Alundra 1, not 2.

No that wasn't it, it was newer, it was more third person style as opposed to a 3d platformer. :/

I played it in my PC maybe in 1991.

Castlevania?

Hello,
Long time ago, my friend brought me a Japanese ps1 game. It all uses japanese language. It's a board game similar to monopoly. As I remember, there is one hero character, one princess/lady, one ninja... They roll the dice, buy, upgrade house and use magic to attack the opponents. You can play the game up to 4 players. I searched and its not Culdcept. I lost the disc and really want to play the game again.

Hello!

I've got four games that I need to remember, listed in order of importance. I'm a Ninties kid, so the earliest game platform would be Dreamcast.

For the Xbox - An action games where you were a mad scientist who invented a something to make himself turn into other animals. He would have to scan the animal first with it and then he could turn into the animal at will. I remember turning into a rat and possibly a gorilla. The animals would always look weird when he turned into them, like freakier. This was around the time that Pchyconauts came out, I believe, because my mother stopped playing video games right after that.

For the PC - A plat former where you were a little boy looking for either his dog or his house. He dressed a bit like Ness from Earth Bound, I think. The title may have been "Monster Something" but don't hold me to that. It would have been about 1996 - 1999 possibly. It's really foggy.

For the Dreamcast - A game where you were a boy who rode a dragon, the dragon looked like a porous with like flipper wings. He gets it when it's little and then it grows up. He comes home to his town and it's all bombed and burned a junk and his parents are dead. I remember that the attack that burned his town was because of his dragon and the government was hella mad about it. The rest of the game was either about you (riding your dragon) getting your revenge or finding somewhere for the dragon to live safely or running from the army, can't remember.

For the Pc - A kids game, most likely around 1995 - 1997 is when I would have played it. There was a panda and a lion and other animals and there was a train involved. That's about all I remember. Really vague, but I was three or four when I played it. We didn't have speakers then and I remember that my mother got me speakers so I could listen to them talk or something.

Anyway, thanks for the help if there's anyone who knows that I'm talking about!

Help me. I'm looking for a very old and simple game. I may have played it more then 20 yrs ago on an old ibm i think. It's a simple matching game where 2 people could play. there was always a bonus round where the contestant would win a trip or something. i believe it was dos based but have looked everywhere. all i remember typing was dir/game/match.

Does this ring a bell?

karluz:
Hi.

Another game i'm looking for is a beat'em up from 1995/96 that I played in the arcades.
We had 3 or 4 chars to choose from like ninjas. And I remember that one was a female that had one special trick that was like a piroet with her arms and legs in flames and another char was a black dude with a big body that had a special trick that was like a head strike like Honda in Street Fighter.

Anyone??

I remember this horror adventure game where you could go into a building and click things that make lightning. Some kind of frankenstein game.

Hai all, been searching the whole interwebs for it.

Now here's what i remember it was for win95/DOS, a shoot'em'up HORIZONTAL scroll, top down view, it had 2 players, one used keyboard the other one a mouse, one was a blue ship another a red one, the ship's looked triangle'ish. The only level i remember is a canyon with water from top down view.

no. thanks.

The game I can't remember the name of is a fairly old RTS. It was sci-fi, I remembered it while watching someone playing some Starcraft. I remember two sides, one just your standard humans with their tanks and guns and such. The other side is what really stuck out, they were shaped like various human human body parts. The main base was shaped like a heart, other buildings like different organs. One of the units was basically a butt on legs, another was a floating brain.

The "Fire ninja girl" sounds like Mai from King of Fighters.

The game was like "streets of rage". Beating guys until the boss...

Hello, I'm trying to find a game I used to play in the late 90's on windows 95 or DOS...

It was about an armored vehicle that you operate and drive freely in some funfair in the first level.

There are different enemies - a car that pushes you , a teddy bear that crushes your car and some little things that throw bombs at you.

That was the first level which I couldn't pass.

There was an intro video in which a story was told - you get into a car crash and they put you in that futuristic armored car. I think it played everytime you got killed.

The game was 3-rd person close view as far as I could remember and the battle arena was closed, but under some conditions you could go over the fence and drive freely into a desert. However in that case, some sort of helicopter drops an enemy car near you, which tries to hot you.

The car's energy (life) was reduced when you got hit by the enemy car and you could get some sort of E.M.P torpedo to disable it for some time, but it was indestuctible. The other enemies - the teddy bear you could kill with some sort of mine, but if the bear manages to grab your car - you are dead. The toughest enemy were some small jumping thingies, that were throwing instant-death bombs at you.

Oh, and the game was pretty tough, as I said I couldn't get past level 1...

P.S. Yes I registered on the board only because of that thread, but I'm glad I stumbled upon it - it's a great forum!

So ive been racking my brains for quite some time now, trying to figure out the name of this one game i played years ago as a kid. From what i can remmember, the game takes place on some kind of fantasy island where there these egg like people living happily and some monster type things attack and capture everyone. You had to rescue youre friends and the elders and kill the monsters. It was on the old playstation 1 console. Im not too sure about the date, but by guessing somewhere between 1998 and 2001.

Can someone please tell me the name

Cheesypriz:
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.

ah really need help on this 1

Pikachuusb:
The 2nd game was for Commadore 64. It was close to Knight Games, but you tried to rescue the princess. I remember seeing a sword fight with a castle background. Then I think you can marry the princess that you rescue?

I amazingly came across this one, Its Called Defender of the Crown, There was also a "sequel" Defender of the Crown 2, but it looks exactly like the original Defender of the Crown with updated graphics.

Now to hopefully find the 1st game.....

The 1st game is a spy/detective(??) game that came out maybe early 90s(?) you could sign up for emails or phone calls from the company. If I'm not mistaken the box was large like a board game?

**edit** after much searching, I believe the 1st game I was searching for was Majestic

I just remembered one, or more appropriately, don't remember one from my childhood.

Used to play this at a guy (not a friend, only visited him a few times) on his SNES. It's been a game which had both a Doom-like 3D section, set in an open world full of void and random encounters, and a solid 2D sidescroller "fighter" section, where you could see your character (some barbarian kinda guy, reminded me of a blonde Conan but my memory might trick me on this) fighting his way through an assortment of little and big enemies.

One of the weirdest things in the game was that the 3D "world" section had a teleporter in each bigger part, and it was a pain in the ass to find out how it worked. We figured it was operated by standing in a circle or something and then we had to keep continually turning right or left... Yeah, weird. I also remember that part of the world map was only available if you went through a rocky mountain-like 2D environment.

Anyone remember this? I'm curious about the name for this, want to see if it was really as good as I remember.

Seeing this encouraged me to actually go and try and find some games that I remember playing from a long time ago.

Connor Tully:
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

I think that would be Cel Damage Overdrive?

Thank you so much! That was bugging me for ages. I will have to try and find it again I loved playing it

Hello guys,
There was I game I am looking for so long and If someone can tell me I will be very gratefull.I remember that youur character has the ability to summon some creatures like zombies skeletons which fight along side you(and in the game menu you can change the monster you can summon ingame after unlocking newer and more powerful ones) and your HP bar is actually your head and if you get low your skin is peeled and you can see the skull,and in order to summon the creatures you need some kind of mana or energy and there were generatiors in which you can stand or make the creatures stand so your energy is recharged again.Other things I remember is that when I eat an apple my HP is regenerated and the 3 stage was some in the swamp with very nasty aligators.The game wasn't easy and you need to come up with a strategy at some points.
Thank you in advance

Hey everyone,

Looking for the name of a game from maybe 7 to 8 years ago.

It was a open world/sandbox style game, very GTA, except every one was a robot. You could travel by flying car or by walking. The car was upgradeable. When walking, your character could get to different switch points and change into a different sort of robot, in order to complete missions, solve puzzles, etc. Each robot had one or two different powers. Say, a police bot might let you get past guards, or a banker bot might help you find more money.

I only played the demo, and it took place in this huge robotic city. Seemed to have plenty of emphasis on story, too.

Basically GTA with robots. Can anyone help?

That would be American McGee Presents: Scrapland.

Ahh, it was too. Perfect, thanks!

Does anyone know the name of that one old old old game from the 90's that was a math game, you played a little water droplet, you collected coins and you ran around yelling, "DANGER DANGER" I've looked everywhere and can't find anything about it!

Im 19 years old, so im guessing the game i cant think of was made around 1998-2002 or something. I played it on the Ps1. I remember there was 4 guys. One red one green one blue one yellow.They all seemed to be dressed in kinda futuristic sporty clothing. But the object was to grab this ball and hold on to it as other players tried to grab it from you. I remember that the cam angle was id say platforming style, but there were obstacles on each of 4 sides of this box these guys were in. And the whole screen would turn at random times, making it harder to stay away from other players and also getting hit by various other obstacles.
I really want to play it again. Sorry for any lack of info, but please help if you can and thanks.

I need help! There's a particular game I've been looking for the past 4 years or so. I remember playing it 10-15 years ago, I don't remember what platform. It involved rts, aliens, dinosaurs, eggs, bases, and it was a war game, defeat your opponent. I'm pretty sure you played as the Dinos, I'd you we're able to play as the aliens, I don't remember. It was also a eagle eye view, like command and conquer, Warcraft, etc.

Maybe you guys can help me with this one. This game was for either the SNES, PS1, or N64 - but likely one of the latter two.

The game took place inside spaceships, and I believe it largely consisted of multiplayer minigames.

I know this isn't much to go on, but the prominent imagery in my head is of an isometric view of a grid.. with arcing bolts of different colored energy.

The antagonists, I believe, were cats; some of the gameplay might have involved destroying their litterboxes.

The game was funky and weird.

a game on the ps1 i believe, it involved a boy and i remember a scene where you were on a rock ledge killing thousands of black goo like monsters with a gun that shot electricity, it was realy hard. want to play this game again help please.

Okay someone please help me out.
Okay when I was younger I remember playing a game on a Sega system or maybe a Nintendo.
All I really remember is that you used to like dig, and then if you ran into bad guys, you would shoot them, and they used to turn into little yellow orbs.. it had to be a game in the mid 90's....
When I try to explain it the little dude kind of reminds me of the mega man guy where he had like an arm with a gun on it..
It's not dig dug (hence the digging part), and its not mega man, but I cannot figure it out. When I ask people about it they say they can picture the man but don't remember the name.

I'm looking for a game that was like a city building/god game. I played it in 2001-2. The version I played was only a demo.
Anyway, I remember there being 3 races at the least, maybe more, but since it was a demo you could only play 2. I can only remember one of the races. The one I remember almost looked like monkeys or the evil guy from powerpuff girls (my sister used to watch it non-stop.) There were the hunters who were dressed in green and had spears, and the criminals had cloaks with large hook type things for hands. The cops wore some dark blue. The resource drop-off was beige and had four towers, one at each corner, which were a sea-blue. That,s about all I remember of the races, except that it was really irritating that the cops had to go through school before they did anything and criminals appeared really early. Apparently the creators of the game thought cops were dumb or something because it took forever to finish the shcool.
The graphics were cartoony with lots of bright blues and green. The Berries you collected for food came from a bright blue bush. All I remember of the interface was the panel with all of the buildings on the right hand side.

TY in advance,
(I hope)

[quote="Japasi" post="9.166417.11378651"]Hello everyone! I wonder if you can help me with this...

It was a Playstation 1 game, and i only had it on a demo disc.
The opening scene was of a big ship at sea (and i think the game title appeared on screen over the background) and you could choose the language; English or Japanese (it was a japanese game).

And then it skips to two people talking on the ship (a boy and a girl), with large heads for some reason. They're just talking to each other for a few minutes and the girl shakes her head and says she's scared to go on the island. And then the boat reaches the island, and you play the male character on the island.

I can't remember much about the gameplay, except that you collected little hearts to boost your health, and that near the beginning you have to push some boxes up near a high ledge, so that you could jump on the box and then onto the ledge.

Also, I think the character's name was in the title (for some reason i think it was a complicated/japanese name) followed by a word like "Adventure" or "Island" or "Quest" or "Journey", or something like that.... but may be wrong about the title...

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks! :-)

I think it may be terra incognita. If you type "terra incognito yaroze" into youtube you get what it sounds like you are talking about. It was part of the yaroze network where there were special playstations which amateur writers could use to write there own games. If they were good enough their creations were put onto the demo.
Hopefully this is what you were talking about, if you haven't already found out by now. (:

I'm having trouble remembering this one game from a while back... It was a turn based game on the PC. You'd have a team of aliens, you'd have a choice of three different ones, a huge strong but slow one, a weak but fast one, and one in the middle. Your team would start at one side, and the other team at another; and you'd have to compete for this little grey ball. When you'd get close to the opposing team you could attack them. I recall the little guys (the fast but weak ones) being very frog-like, possibly even making a frog-like "boing" when they move(/jump) to another space. Any help would be graciously appreciated!
