OK here's a challenging one, mainly because i don't remember too much detail.

I think it was on a windows 95 machine.

It was a platformer, with a blonde haired guy as the hero, and he would need to get keys to open the doors to next level. he had a gun, and the usual jump mechanics, but i remember it being really difficult. or i was crap at games at 5-7 years old - who can say?

Please help if you can!

Please help if you can! :(

I don't know exactly what game you are looking for, but i'll throw a couple of suggestions here and you can say what is the most similar. Also around what year did it come out? "pretty much pixel and old" does that mean DOS game old? Also, was it a game that is just a free download or a game that you could purchase in a store?

1. One of the Disciples games? ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRM8etZ2Ny0&t=14m5s )
2. One of the Warlords games? ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oft1nVDdEoc )
3. One of the Age Of Wonders games? ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dd2_RKhrIqA&t=15m )
4. One of the Heroes Chronicles games? ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZW41ayuvhTk&list=PL585BAE408A837506&t=7m25s )
5. Lords of Magic? ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=at1o8wFh6Bc&t=30s )
6. One of the King's Bounty games? ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6B1gPJbeGc&t=8m )
7. Hammer Of The Gods ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNXlqOz8oYg&t=7m20s )

im afraid not.

using that kind of as a point of reference though, same haircut, but a much more zoomed out perspective (you could see quite a lot of the level around you). the enemies were definitely alien like. it wasn't a side scrolling game where it moved automatically.

Okay guys I need help with two games. I played both of them when I was 4 or 5, which was the year 2000, 2001 or 2002.

So, the first game is about a boy, i remember him being an elf but it doesn't have to be true. he was riding in some kind of mine cart in a mine, and he was carrying blocks with vegetable drawings on them, and he was going left-right and climbing up brown ladders and putting those blocks in some order. there were about five columns he was climbing up. I don' remember anything else.

The second game was about something with a minotaur I think a man was running from a minotaur and hiding in a labyrinth or something. But it is not a part or a level of a game, I think the whole game consists of that. other than that, i don't remember anything.

I hope somebody knows something about these games. thanks in advance!

I really know that i got this game from free but i dont remember if its from CD or internet download. thats all I can give. :)
Thanks for Help!

Sorry but this is all I have to give from memory. Old nes game. Starts out with a house where you choose a character out of the several in there. Each with their own skill and I believe you go down into the ground to battle creatures and such. I believe there was a kid or two, a large man, all I got. It was like a family or something. Driving me nuts

Something like Legacy of the Wizard?

Blix77:
There are more than one game in the series I am looking for. I remember 3 games, one was a beat em up game where you had to save a girl. The characters were tiny. One was a sort of fighting/karate game. There were 4 dojos or different types of fighters to choose from. They were wearing 4 different color uniforms( red, blue green, white I believe) and there were like 5 fighters in each dojo. And the last game was some sort of challenge game, I remember the characters had to fight to knock a bell in one of the challenges, there was a race involved in another. These games all share the same characters. I remember you could pick up rocks or other objects and throw them at the enemy. Thanks for the help.

Definitely games from Kunio-kun (Nekketsu) series by Technos.
First one sounds a lot like River city Ransom.
The fighting/karate game is probably Nekketsu Kakuto Densetsu.
As for the challenge games... I think there were several, so, i guess, it's either Downtown Nekketsu Koshinkyoku: Soreyuke Daiundokai or Bikkuri Nekketsu Shinkiroku: Harukanaru Kin Medal (a.k.a Crash'n the Boys)

That's exactly what I was looking for! Thank you.

I have one more request. There's this game where your character is a small guy and you have to get through like 7 islands to beat the game with a boss at the end of each island. At the beginning of the stage you could have picked if you wanted mounts or not. I remember you could of picked from a bird( a crow perhaps) and you could fly over most the stage but there'd be more crows in the stage to stop u from just flying to the exit. I remember u had the option to start with or without a fire projectile. Other mounts i remember were 2 dinosaur-ish kind of creatures, one red and one blue and I remember them shooting fire in different ways. I also remember that u had to eat fruit(or vegetables?) in the stage to stay alive as ur life bar constantly drained. And if u ate an eggplant it slowed u. I remember one of the bosses being a crab where you constantly had to jump as there was quicksand on the floor. Thank you

Fight For Fame ( http://www.old-games.com/download/5243/fight-for-fame )

Hey all, looking for a game I played in about 98-02, it was either for the SNES or PSX, it was a strategy RPG, graphics wise it was mostly like Vandal Hearts but slightly more cartoon like. I remember the first battle I think you have 5 or so members and you fight a group of Goblins (they have swords, I think, maybe not though) and eventually as you progress in the game I remember a cut scene with a woman/princess type character in a garden type area talking to someone, I think the game progressed in Stages or Scenarios? I'm not 100% sure.

I've ruled out Tactics Ogre, Ogre Battle, Vandal Hearts I&II and a few more, it's very similar to those games though, I just can't for the life of me remember the name of it. It was quite difficult too. Any help appreciated.

EDIT: It's not the Shining Force series, either, played all of them and the graphics are more 3D than I&II.

Both sound kind of like Breath of Fire 3?

Umm, hello. Can I ask something?

I once played this game, a PSX game, this game is fighting game which taken place inside a crystal or something. One of the character are using chain if I'm not mistaken. The combo is amazing, and you actually can launch the enemy outside the crystal. It's 2D I think. I think I'll be delightful if I can actually find the title name and able to playing this game again. So could you help me, please anyone?

When i was a little girl around 8 years old i would go to my aunts house and play this very old pixel game on her ancient windows computer. It was a puzzle game of sorts where you had several farm animals like horses, sheep, cows, and pigs and they'd wonder the screen aimlessly and you had a set time in which you had to fence all the animals in 1 pen. like horses in one pen, pigs in the other etc.. the fences where created by clicking and dragging your cursor across the screen.
I'm 16 currently and this was when i was 8 and it's been haunting me and the Google searches reveal no answers.
Are there any 90's kids here that can help a sister out?

tamofeio:
i would like to know whats the name of a game in which you are a pink haired character, human most likely, and i believe its an rpg or action rpg for ps1. It starts with a 2D cutscene of the ground shattering and the pink haired character saving a bunch of chicks from a tree and jumping over the enormous crack on the ground.

Tomba

That's either Adventure island 2 or 3.

Kcrafton:
I have, for years, been searching for the name of an SNES game I used to play when I was young. (Somewhere between 4 and 7 years old) It has pretty much haunted me for years. The only thing i have to go off of in identifying it is a couple of mental still images in my head.

It was a basic platformer. When I look back on it, it makes me think of Mario without coins/blocks/etc.

I vaguely remember the first level being snow-based. I seem to recall it was snowing in the game. That's about all I have on that level.

The other level I recall took place on top of a train. You'd work your way along the roof of the train, while the train was speeding.

Something else I vaguely remember, the character you played was small. I want to say he was orange (don't quote me on that) but could be wrong. I remember when you hit down, he reminded me as a bit of a bolt. The top and bottom half were both grayish.

S'about all I got on it. x.x

Thanks in advance. :3

EDIT: Also, might be worth noting, that the graphics weren't massively outstanding. They made me think of the earlier years of the SNES.

complete shot in the dark, aero the acrobat

Checked; it's not Aero the Acrobat. Thank you for the response though.

EDIT: Found the game; was Super James Pond 2 :3

Hi all
in the 80's/beginning of the 90's I played some computer game in which I played a tank.
There were mines and walls. I think you had to get some key or something and then you have won.
The colors (on our computer) were pink, green and blue, but our computer was (at that time) not so advanced.
It took a very long time to shoot a wall. There were also cannons on some walls.

It was also possible to play the game multiplayer, hot seat. Window got divided in two to four windows and with the two/four we played the game.

I had in my mind the title of the game was something with 'fire' but I cannot find anything on the internet about it.
Me and my sisters enjoyed the game very much, at that time.

hey guys
i wana know the name of a game where you play as a black or a brown man thats in an alien world that have hostile enemies and peaceful ones they called the character (olo kaie) or somethin its a first person shooter and in the dialog it turns into 3d person it contins shops i just remember where you fight those giant worms that erupts from the water pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee help

Nanatsuya:
Hi,

i'm looking for a singleplayer RPG-game i played in my childhood on PC (win95 98 or even DOS i guess). All i know is that you start on a Spaceship with your toon, walking arround looking from the top. on your short time on the spaceship (its like 10min. stuff) you check every room and chest (if you want to), finding a secret spot into a office and if you look careflly you can even find a gun with limited ammo.

short after an emergency occurs (dont remember exactly why) and you wake up on an alienlike planet. thereon you again walk arround meet new ppl. in an underdeveloped state (like using bows and swords as weappons) and form a little party for fights and stuff.

fights are hold round-based on a 6*6 chessboard like map, triggerd by random events on walking.

i can remember a first person situation in a dungoen too, while i held a pickaxe... but maybe i mix in another game now..

thanks in advance, Nana

no one knows this? *.+

Hi everyone

There's a game that I have been looking for that I remember playing when I was young. I believe it was around 1999/2000 and I played it on a Demo CD from a magazine. I remember very little from this game, but I know that it was a fantasy/adventure third person shooter and the guy you played had yellow/purple clothes or something like that. When he was swimming he used only his legs and not his arms. That's all I can remember right now.

Thanks

I need one too, folks, though it's probably on the tip of my tongue:

A late 90s free web-based adventure/puzzle game, probably Shockwave. The interface is a screen with a projector effect (center lots brighter than the edges), the colors are washed out, and the opening screen is mostly white and light cyan/blue.

It's very surreal, and I think the theme is some megacorp/Illuminatis or something holding you hostage. Done by a Dutch or Scandi guy. Also, it's fun.

You could be talking about Bolo.

you'll have to forgive me as I've only played this game once about 15 years ago but really wanna play it again! From what I can remember the game was a first person point and click, where you have to fix a broken time machine and when you did this, you got sent to a level which involved digging up dinosaur bones with various archaeological equipment, like drills, brushes and a toothbrush etc. Unfortunately this is all I can remember of the game but its been doing my head in for days!! I can't even remember what the back story was... Any help would be much appreciated. Also apologies in advance if this has already been asked before, can't be bothered to scroll through all 260 pages!! Thanks again.

Omikron: Nomad Soul?

There is a game which has been driving me mad lately because I can't figure out the name of it.

I think it came out around 1998-2002, but i'm not really sure. The game was played with a top down view, kind of like Pacman with walls and so on. There were different kinds of monster spawners which spawned werewolves, zombies, gremlins? and a sea monster. There were different kinds of weapons to pick up to kill the monsters. The pistol was good against the werewolf, salt? was good against the sea monster and there was a lamp which was good against the gremlins i think. And you could only carry one weapon at a time.

I'm not sure, but I think you completed a level by grabbing an item that would let you go to the next floor and the goal of the game was to get a high score or get to the highest level.

The sea monster kind of looked like this: http://vector.me/files/images/9/0/90746/scooby_doo_7.jpg

sir, you are a my hero <3; you hit it xD

thank you so much =)
