Alexander Tsekot:
State of War maybe?

Oh my god! Thanks to you I found my childhood game. :3

I remember this ps1 3D mecha battle game, there were 1-on-1 stages in arenas and each robot had a really vivid color(one enemy was orange, another was yellow, etc). The ''main'' robot was mostly blue and had a kinda hidden blade in the arm which could be used to stab the enemies. I remember a city, a sand and a lava stages, and the last boss was a black robot.

ChromaticWolfen:
PS2 game that involved mechs. Some points about it are:
1:Mechs.
2:You could get sponsored by different companies when you became good enough.
3:Fight in an arena against other mechs.
4:Buy "A.I"s that looked liked various animals.
5:100 days of competition then it would reset and went on for another 100 days.
6:There was a plot were in some conversations people would suddenly disappear and they would have found to have been killed.

If anyone knows please help, this game has been stuck in my head for ages and I can't find the name of it.

It was called S.L.A.I, I used to love that game. Got a little repetitive though

I played this game in third grade (around 2000) but it seemed old for its age even then. It was something like night of the living blob or something. I remember so little of it. There was a green blob,ooze thing that was terrorizing a town. It was 2D and if I remember correctly you had to solve clues. I don't think there was all that much action in it. I know none of this is very helpful but its just been bugging me for so long. It felt very mid-nineties to me as it was on a pretty ancient computer for the time.

ok so iv been looking for a old rpg pc game one of my friends let me borrow when i was younger in the 90s it was medievalish over the top camera i remember the main character was the son of the bad guy i dont remember much but i kno it had mages skeletonss and all that iv looked it up but couldnt find anything i was hoping you guys could help i thought it was diablo or baldurs gate but nope if you know wat it is feel free to msg me coqui89@gmail.com would really help me out

You wouldn't believe the google gymnastics I had to pull to remember the name of the Hugo point&click game. It was a eureka moment for me, like when I killed the capra demon in dark souls

Kaid Piper:
hey.there used be this demo i played on pc it was like sims but you were like a secrete bunch of people that you could build under ground make rooms for your henchmen or something like that na dyour bos was some fat dud and i think you had to stop i spy from getting into your base. anyone have any clues?

oh and you had to colect gold somehow??

please help! :)

Evil Genius. Great game, good sense of humour about it.

Ok. This is a 90s kids computer game.

It took place in a town with a big clock tower. I'm pretty sure it started in the morning and got darker as the day went on. There were little mini games to play, like making and selling ice cream cones and also creating dolls (or people) by picking their clothes and hair colors?? PLEASE!!

PLEASE help me ! i'm looking for this game and i'm sure some of u know which one it is.

i remember not having os x yet and the game was freely delivered with the mac software which i guess was mac os 9 .. or 8

anyway; it was a third-person shooter and u had to shoot kind of robots. the terrain was all like in space or in spaceships

BUT the most special thing about the game was the main character ! he had a really long spiky head ! ( or at least the helmet he wore )

i think there was also the possibility to play as a dog...

and the use of a parachute was needed from time to time ..

thats all I can remember, but i'm sure u guys know of what game i'm talking about ;) ( it shouldn't be that difficult since the game couldn't be that old ! )

anyway, thx to anybody who could help me with this :)

bye

Sounds like MDK to me. Or more precisely MDK 2 as that was the one with the Dog character.

Matthew Winegard:
There's one I've been trying to remember for years. It was a turn-based RPG for the SNES, or maybe NES. Here are some random details I can recall:
-You begin the game with a party of 3 or 4 with high stats.
-You fight the main antagonist, but obviously don't kill him.
-Something happens (time travel maybe?) and you end up alone and at level 1.
-Someone gives you a bag or pouch and tells you to take it to a village.
-At the village, you open the bag/pouch and it releases some kind of evil, and everything appears red.
-Despite the chaos, a girl can be found sunbathing. She will tell you to go away.
-In an inn in this village, a girl (princess?) is sick in bed. You heal her/wake her up and she follows you.
-You travel to a cave next, where an old man will follow you IF you have the girl with you.
-This old man uses magic. Uncreatively, "Black magic" and "White magic" are the names of the spells. I believe the girl can also use "white magic."
-The only other detail I can remember is, your characters look different at high levels. Specifically, your main character will gain a cape.

It's not among the Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest series. My dad and I used to play this one a lot, but hours and hours on the internet has yielded nothing!

That would likely be Lufia. The sequel, also a great title, actually hsa you playing the full adventure of the group you play at the end of the first game.

Orange12345:
I remember playing a game at my cousins house, it was a beat'em up that I think was on the sega genesis. The only thing I remember about it is that it was co-op, and my brother always chose the same character, a guy who I think was wearing a blue jean jacket (or some kind of blue clothes) and he had a special attack that did damage to all enemies on screen with lighting

vague I know but any ideas

The jean jacket makes me think Streets of Rage (Bare Knuckle in the US), the lightning makes me think Golden Axe. Unless it was Streets of Rage 3, that had Dr Zan in it, who used electricity.

CatBus:
I've been searching for this game for over a decade. I played it on the Megadrive or perhaps the PSX (but I'm leaning towards the MD). It was a 2D sidescrolling game in which you played as a monster (who was probably either yellow or blue), other than that all I can remember is that if you went left instead of right at the start you could drop off a ledge and pick up a potion. If anybody has any ideas I'll love you forever!

Sonic the Hedgehog?

Kidding, kidding! Possibly Altered Beast?

Sounds very much like Dungeon Keeper.

thank you so much!!!

There is this one game that has been bugging me and for the likes of it cant find anything on it. I remember clearly the intro its dudes in red armor walking either through a tunnel or sewer and they get ambushed and your guy is the only survivor. I remember my grandfather playing this but I dont remember the name. It seemed like an up down game like the original fallouts. Any info on it would be greatly appreciated.

Rwvdh:
[quote="AC10" post="9.166417.13962163"][quote="Rwvdh" post="9.166417.13960580"]Usually i solve my own old game riddles with google but this time i turn to you guys.

I think it either was a demo of a game or a too powerfull game for our computer back then that i only know the first few parts of it and its setup.

Its a racing game in which you can knock out the competition with mines (positive), oil and guns (less positive).
I remember the game has a bridge in the beginning you have to jump over using a giant spring attached to the base of your car. (Failing to do so is game over)
It has a cartoonish setting.
Each car is different, with a distinct character per type of car. (Character i always chose was in a futuristic looking race tenue with blue helmet i believe)
I played it around '95 on the old 486 or pentium 1, (DOS/Win95)

Anyone have a clue?

Still looking, any ideas? (Not Hi-Octane)

Anybody know this game?
-Third person shooter with cover mechanics(ish)
-On Nintendo 64.
-Story had some terrorists invading a base on the first level.
-You were part of some specialist team(Sorta like Rainbow 6).

When i was a kid, i played a platformer game about alien who stranded on the unknown planet. That planet had a blue grass and yellow sky(there was more than one planet but i never completed the first one), and alien had a tv with eyes on it instead of normal head. I remember there was a attack called "slap". On intro movie, alien play game named "Humanoid" that is parody of game "Arcanoid" or "Galaxian". The goal of the game was to collect gears and parts of your Spaceship.
I tried to find this game on my own but it ended in complete failure, so i hope you can help me. Thanks

Hi there.. I Need some help with a game i played a few years back.i think it was for PS2 but not sure.

StriderShinryu:

Looks like either Yakuza or Shenmue.

Note: Shenmue never appeared on the PS2.

Thank you alot. the name of the game was Shenmue. Been looking for the game for years. thanks alot

Hmm. Some of it doesnt sound right to me, but I do remember two old games where you had to find parts of your spaceship. Cosmos Cosmic Adventure and Commander Keen. Though I think you were a human in Commander Keen....

So I've spent an hour using google-fu attempting to find a game I loved, to no avail. Basically it was a top-down shooter for pc made in the 90's. It takes place in a castle, and you make your way through levels killing hordes of zombies. Sometimes there would be large zombies, sometimes there would be boss fights. There were tons of power-ups, and you'd have to look for colored keys to open their corresponding door, as well as more between levels using stair cases. It was also not a very serious game. Halp?

Okay, so I've been going through this thread looking for a reference to the game that's killing me - I can't find it for the life of me, so hopefully someone here remembers!

It was late 80s/early 90s, and I'm pretty sure it was played on our Amiga. You could play as a boy, girl or two types of alien and you were trying to fix your broken spaceship by walkking around the ship and finding 10 (I believe) green crystals. You could go up ladders, there were holes in the floor and had to avoid certain things (slime, aliens or something). I believe you had the ability to jump, though I don't remember you being able to fight. There was definitely one of those early computer voices.

Any help would be so greatly appreciated - the inability to remember this is driving me crazy! Thanks!!

HELP! No but srsly, made an account just so i could get some help. There is this one game i cant recall nor find anywhere, it was this really old pc game i'd say 1990-2000 and it had 3D graphics similiar to that old 3D round shape thing as in the first games with round objects that were on Snes and N64.

So the game started with a man and woman riding on a same horse to some castle and there were monsters everywhere, when they got to the gates they were ambushed by some big monster. Then after that the game begins with you (the male character) being in shackles or something. Then some female voice comes in and frees you from the shackles with some sort of magic. Okay now that you were free the game play was kinda like Medievil but with more darker and bloodier graphics. You are without a weapon at first but you steal a sword from an orc blacksmith nearby. All i can remember from that game was that, and that it was hard and but something nostalgic was in it.... atleast for me. :)

So if u have any idea what this was, please reply. :D

This sounds kinda like "Return to Castle Wolfenstein" but i am not sure

This is a real shot in the dark, but Ecstatica 2 maybe?

Might be Metropolismania; the sequel came out in 2006.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metropolismania

a video game about an indian kid fighting in a forest fantacy?
this game that I played in like the 90's early 2000's and it was this indian kid in like a forest with creatures and stuff and you can capture the creatures and mix them with other creatures and make your own is was sick and u had like this lil fairy girl u had to save I think..and yea it was pretty weird but I wanna find it so I can play it again. and the creatures may have been eggs first and then they hatch i don't really remember but it was cool and really long and there was a lot of funky flash back dream type things it was really mystical and stuff. oh and is was PlayStation 1 I played it on.

OMG! Thats the one, Ecstatica 2. Thank you so much, have been looking this for a while. :)

Ok, so, theres this game ive been looking for for 5 years. I played it back around 1998-2003, i dont remember what year exactly but it was somewhere in there. It was for PC, and it was very simple, as i remember it, but i only have vague memories. As i remember it, it was 2D sidescrolling and it had a battle mode. You were a small guy that could fly around the maps with a jetpack (he may have also had a weak gun, but im not positive). You could, however, find larger robot "mechs" that you could climb in and proceed to battle in. I cannot remember all of the details and not all of them may be accurate, but this has been bugging me for a long time and there isnt a night that goes by i dont long to remember the name of this wonderful game. I need peace of mind and if anyone can help me it'd be much appreciated. Thanks you.

PS, the game may have been an internet game but I doubt it, but i wouldnt rule it out as a possibility.

Does anyone remembe a game for either ps1 or n64 it was an arena style fighting game, was a goofy style of game where you chose a char from.a couple silly ones, and I rememberr one guy shot a giant controllable rocket
