Need help remembering 2 computer games from the mid 90s.

The first was a 2 player game, where both players control their character using either the key pad or letters on the opposite side of the keyboard. The object was to defeat the other player by shooting their character with guns. After each round, you could buy more weapons. I thought the name was "Battle Dogs," but I can't seem to find anything...

The second game was also from the mid-late 90s. It was an adventure game where you controlled a wizard or something. You had magic, but I forget exactly how you used it. You start in a forest and go to a town shortly after. I distinctly remember a puzzle inside a house in the town where you had to carefully walk to the other side of the room with monsters blocking your way. After the town, you continued to another forest, where you would fight a boss.

Not the best descriptions, but please let me know if you remember!

Okay, there was a game, I want to say late 90's it was kind of Halloween themed. like the main character had a pumpkin head? or you collected pumpkins? I think I remember pumpkins with vines for bodies that chased you? the graphics were great for that time. I think you walked around grave yards and maybe a town, but it was all at night. I really played this like everyday. I cannot believe I don't remember more. I think I had a sega at the time. hope you guys can help.

Hi. I've been looking for the name of this game in the Playstation 1 games list on Wikipedia, but couldn't find it. I hope someone will recognize this game from my pretty vague description. This is what I know:

I know there were several levels, one of which was on a submarine (or maybe a ship?). The viewpoint was from slightly above, maybe isometrical, can't remember for sure. You had to fight people (not aliens or anything like that) and at some point there was kind of like a boss fight where you fought a very fat chef in a large kitchen. The most fun feature of this game (and the main reason I want to somehow play this game again) was that you could pick up objects from the ground, like the leg of a broken chair or a bat, etc. which you used to fight with. I know that in order to defeat the fat chef, you had to throw fridges at him or something like that.

And now for the most important aspect of the game: I know I played this game with a friend (co-op mode) and at the end of the game I had to fight him. Whoever won the fight, actually won the game. Unfortunatelly, I can't remember the plot and why you had to fight your partner at the end.

I hope I'm right when I say this was a Playstation 1 game as I'm not sure of that either. Thanks!

There was an arcade game I played more than any other when I was a teenager. I've been trying to track it down in recent years but I just have no clue what it's called. Luckily I can still recall the game with vivid clarity, however. It was a classic side scrolling, beat-em-up game very much like Golden Axe or those D&D arcade games and the whole game revolved around climbing this epic tower from floor to floor. You'd start outside and battle your way up and I'm pretty sure you could choose different routes. There were different characters you could play as and you could rescue other characters along the way that would fight by your side in pretty much the same way those floating orbs from Gradius would fight by your side. But they all had different classes like rogues or mages. You also got points for picking up treasure and rescuing townsfolk. The game appeared in the arcade at my local mall sometime in the 90's and it was just my favorite thing ever. If anyone can help me track this game down I will be eternally grateful.

Totally Magic Sword. Great arcade game.

Thanks. You seem to have all the answers :)

I remember playing this old FPS game. I remember that the background of the menu screen was a big horizontal knife, and the curser was also a knife. You could select different weapons, guns and explosives before the game started. And the first level you started on a big green field with coconut trees on. You could shoot the coconut trees. And as far as i recall you needed to kill the enemies in a nearby village, which was in a valley straight forward.

Hi I'm looking for a game I played back in the 90's on PC. I believe it was a puzzle/mystery type game. The game was about a group of astronauts going on a mission to mars. The game starts out with all the astronauts sitting at a table being interviewed by media people.. Then you go to mars and I remember the ground gives out on one of the crew members and he falls into a pit and dies. Once you go down into the pit you find alien like ruins. I know you find this giant pill shaped thing that is green that then brings the dead guy back to life, but he isn't the same.

That's all I can really remember but its bugged me for years that I can't remember the name of it. Any input on the title would be great!

That sounds exactly like The Dig, except Mars is not a part of the game.

ok this one has eaten at me for a while, its an rpg game for the playstation 1 or 2. it felt like a final fantasy 7 ripoff, very text heavy. i remember a robot party member and the main character was a pirate i think, it felt very steampunk. the only other information i have is that when the robot characters text showed up on screen it was displayed in a digital font which caught my eye. i havnt played this game in a very long time sorry for the lack of info

Which is the sequel to Die Hard Arcade (PS1) :)

Hi, if anyone can help me find out what this is I'd really appreciate it! The game was probably from the late 90's or early 2000s. A 2D platforming game where the player creates an obstacle course and then observes a man character who walks through them. If the man gets trapped between two obstacles, he will walk back and forth between them for a couple of seconds and then fall asleep. The graphics and layout look very similar to this screenshot: http://blogs.theage.com.au/screenplay/Impossible%20Mission2.jpg

However I am fairly sure the game was NOT Impossible Mission, because in IM the player controls the man, but in the game I remember the man moved through the obstacle course by himself. Also I know that it was definitely a PC game, not a console game. Thanks in advance for any help!!

1. Cyberdogs?

Hello, everyone... I registered to the forum specifically to post here on this thread. There's a PC game that I've been thinking of from time to time, and would like to know what it was... I was young when I played it (24 now), and I didn't play much of it because it creeped me out. I would say that it was maybe released in the 90's?

All I remember from it was that there were two black dogs... or dark colored dogs (I want to say Dobermans) with white or glowing eyes outside of what looked like a church? A very small church. The dogs wouldn't attack you, but they would bark and follow you around as if they would. Also there was something about a lampshade made of human flesh, and a throw rug made out of a human... I have no idea if you were someone trying to find a serial killer, or something entirely unrelated. Whether it was third person or first person, I honestly can't recall.

I can't for the life of me remember what it was called, or anything else about the game. Just the dogs with glowing eyes, the human skin lamp shade and the human rug. I tried Google searches multiple times, but nothing even remotely close to what I'm thinking of comes up.

mkondov:
Awesome thread,

I have been searching for game I played as a kid and usually only have one or two scenes to work with.

I already found Blake Stone : Aliens of Gold.I only had the demo ,but great fun none the less.

However,there are two games I am dying to find.

First game was a 2D platformer. I remember a scandily clad woman running around Jurassic Park-like setting,killing dinosaurs with her SCEPTER ,from which she shoots fireballs. It is possible that there was no scepter and she shot fireballs through her arms.
I remember that the first boss was a huge dinosaur that you had to jump up and down a tree,while shooting him.

The second game almost feels like a dream to me.It was a first person shooter.
As you start the game,you are in a hallway with open ceiling (like a labyrinth) and you have to fight a creature that looked like a bull.
After defeating it,you moved forward to find a healing potion.I believe you had a scepter again.
The game had huge open spaces.On the second level,you could enter portals to move through the arenas.
I remember big skeletons shooting at me (enemies were not in hordes,rather they were scarce and spreaded out).

What was remarkable about the second game is that on the second level with the skeletons and portals,you always seemed to have a mist around you and couldn't see more than 5 feet ahead of you.

This is all I remember.It was all more than 8 years ago.You will fill a significant portion of my childhood blank spots,if you help me find these games.

Thank you! :)

============
What generation were these games? The ones I'm thinking of were old, old DOS games.
"Jill of the Jungle" and "The Catacomb Abyss".
============

Ok, The Catacomb Abyss is very close,I think I have played that game too.The labyrinth game I am thinking about has better graphics and no bottom rpg-like panel.It was an rpg though,because I remember having potions.
The graphic style of that game was dark and spooky.The levels differed totally.It wasn't just a labyrinth till the end.I am sorry I can't remember more. :(

Jill of the Jungle is conceptually the same as the game I am thinking about.But again,think better graphics and more ACTION.The 2d platformer with the chick shooting fireballs was vicious,the sound effects were loud and the girl was more detailed,tits were big!It was like a action-packed porn.

Thank you for the effort!

That's it Doomgriever! Thanks a lot!

Hey guys. I have two really a really game that I remember playing around the early to mid 80's that I don't know their names. The first is a classic fighter game, the first one I ever played, it was a sit down arcade game IIRC where the screen was parallel with the floor.

Anyway, I found a picture of two of the characters from that game and put the picture in my public folder here: https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=d2279b6a0445117f&id=D2279B6A0445117F!19570&sff=1 It's the bottom most left and bottom most right characters; the bald guy with white pants and the girl in pink with the baton.

Thanks in advance for your help guys!

EDIT: Nevermind, I found it! Yie Ar Kung-Fu! Woohoo! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yie_Ar_Kung-Fu

I have a game that has been bothering me for about 15 years now. It's an rpg in wich you are a boy going of on an adventure and you come outside and have this amazing blue dragon(at least i think you own it). I think it was for playstation 1. Any1 have a clue?

Yuliya Yordanova:
In the late 90's I used to play a game on my computer... and the only thing that i remember is a little blond boy and a dog in a fantasy world....and the bad guys were some kind of animals... may be turtles ..but ...i am not sure about that =] if someone knows what i'm talking about..please help me!

I know this is from a long time ago but I came here searching for another game and recognized this.

That game was called Doofus. Here's the link http://www.mobygames.com/game/doofus

I'm looking for a somewhat old game which I played a demo of in the late 90s / early 00s but the game is probably older than that. It was a 2d top down shooter were you could control a helicopter or a tank (I'm not sure if you got to choose or if it depended on the mission). It's not "Return Fire" but it shares a lot of common elements with that game. Any ideas?

I came here to look for this and didn't find the answer... But after vigorous searching I found it! It was Seek and Destroy.

This little blue dragon? From Tales Of Destiny ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDPdRvaecSk&t=7m38s )

I'm trying to remember an old game I played in the early/mid 90's on a DOS computer. You controlled in 3rd person a tiny character in a round hovercraft boat that zipped around over an endless ocean. I remember being able to shoot with it but enemies were very sparse and seemed like flying aliens or something (my memory of the enemies is hazy). You could travel in all directions and could also submerge your craft underwater for a duration. One time I found an island or perhaps a ship of some kind that my character got out and boarded, returning with a sword. That's all I remember.

Sean Wsn:
Hi, i have been searching an old pc racing game. It's like a motorbike racing game. It is a 2 persons in a motorbike where the driver drive the motorbike while the rider sit on the cart beside the motorbike and the rider can hit another player like using somekind of baseball bats that is made of stone to win the game. I remember at one moment the motorbike will come across some kind of bridge and fly across the river and then continue the race. The motorbike is kind of like flintstones where the tyres are made of stones. This is how i remember the game,i hope i can know the name of this game. If not mistaken i played this game between year 1996 to 98.

This sounds a lot like the game I also have requested more information about! Let's hope someone here knows :)

Hi there all! I Really hope you can help restore my sanity here :) - Used to play a PC game with my daughter, maybe around 2000-2006. A 3D action adventure game, 3rd person, and something like a cross between alice in wonderland and tombraider, featuring a female character (maybe with a sidekick, possibly a monkey or similar). Possibly might have had some blimps in it? Good graphics for the time, but was really quite trippy!?! I know this is really vague but she is driving me nuts not knowing what this game was called!

Aaaargh! Help!

Thanks in advance!

Good day! I can't remember the game I played about 7-9 years ago. There was a pink dino and maze. You should run from pink (or green?) lava (acid? liquid? I didn't understand) and lay bombs somewhere. There were squares with stars inside, you can go through and they dissapeared when you do it. Also there were enemies and only 4 levels available.

Please, help to find it because I couldn't :'(

I created an account here just for this thread.
I'm looking for a game I played a long time ago, but cant for the life of me remember the title of.

I came here after a google search, in that search it looked like someone else had made a description of a game that sounded similar to the one I am looking for.
The google link brought me to page 145 in this thread, but the post that brought me here was not there, and I am not very keen on going through 285 pages to find something that may or may not be there

Description of the game to the best of my ability.

I dont remember any specifics like company or release year, what I do remember is that it was a PC game

If I were to guess I could only give a timeframe, around 1990-2000, plus/minus a few years,

I believe it was a side scroller type of game, but not sure, and I think you can choose loadout as well, and that you take off from a base of some sort.

You could choose aircrafts among most modern jet fighters, Harrier Jump Jet, F14.
The purpose is to attack enemy installations or bases, possibly aircraft too, but not sure

One thing that frustrated me was that I was supposed to be able to swap aircraft between missions, but somehow it never worked for me, I was only able to swap aircraft and certain intervals or if I lost the one I was flying.

Its not a flight simulator or a game in the Janes series of games

Thats about all I can remember of it.

Okay, I've been looking for this game I played with my cousin when we were kids, I have no clue what system it was for all I know is he plugged whatever system he had up to his computer to play it. It was kind of like the "Breath of Fire" series in a lot of ways, but from what I can remember, the main character was a boy who had an eagle or falcon he always carried with him named "Sky" In the fight's you could select a combo attack with the boy and his bird, the boy would yell out "Sky take flight" and sky would grab the mob and carry it into the sky and drop them, as the mob fell the boy would cut it twice with his sword. I only played through about 40 min into the game or so, but the only other thing I remember was this woman that you meet who joins your party, later she gets captured and becomes evil, she grows black wings. You end up having to go to a castle somewhere to save her. Sadly this is about as far as I have made it in the game. but I can never find out what the name of the game is and my cousin pawned it off back in the early 2000s so he doesn't even remember the game. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I guess that could be Beyond Good and Evil, or possibly just American McGee's Alice/Alice: Madness Returns?

I'm really wondering what this game is... I think I played it around 2003 maybe? It was a PC game that I found on nick.com. I don't think it was one of their "normal" games because you could only play a demo unless you wanted to buy it for $14. It was a 3D dragon game. The dragon was blue I think and it was kind of little. In each level, you had to wander around outside until you found another dragon to battle with (I think it was another dragon). I'm guessing you could breathe out fire and stuff but I can't remember. The main point of the whole game was to rescue something but I can't remember what... Maybe another dragon friend or something. On the very last level I remember playing, I think my small blue dragon was up against this giant mean looking dragon. Does anybody have any idea what this could be?

Gahan Wilson's The Ultimate Haunted House? I just rediscovered this yesterday haha. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mWuZGFC4JA

Thank you so much Doomgriever ^.^ made my day! Can't thank you enough!

I remember this game that I used to play years ago on pc, although I only had the demo of it, its a point and click RPG game. The view is from above, just like warcraft, diablo or any moba game, and you gather your party members as you play through the game. Sadly I can't remember a lot of details, I do remember that the main character ( don't know if its the main character but its the one I started with in the demo ) looks similar with John Smith from Pocahontas, not entirely but a look a like. You get one of the party members not far from the starting location, you get him in a nearby village, he's quite big, a savage perhaps. I also remember that when you were engaged in combat, there was these character portraits in the lower center of the screen depending on which character you had marked ( example: http://puu.sh/4xhZm.png ), whenever you took damage the character would do facial expressions that signalized that they were taking hits, and I think they became more bloody or worn out depending on how damaged they were.

Hmm other than that, the world looks like medieval times I guess, meaning that there is forests, lakes, swamps and such, there are a few villages here and there ( don't know if there is any towns because I didn't get that far because of the demo version ).

This is quite a poor description of the game, but I hope that someone could understand and perhaps identify which game it is. If you need any more details I will try to remember as best as I can.

Thanks on beforehand.

**edit**

If I'm not wrong, when you fought wolves (only creature I can remember) their texture became bloody after taking hits, and I think you could gather their pelts.

**edit**
The gameplay is similar to dragon age if anyone played that.

hello guys,
i remembered a old dos board game for two player,
player produce locomotive,duck and some toys run to opponent baseline,

every runing toy had their own energy,

light and small props runing quickly,heavy runing slowly,

they could stick together as a group to against opponent's toy group,

when the total energy of toy's group that reached oppoent's baseline is bigger than opponent's blood,game is over and popup the result,

could anyone tell me the name? thanks !
