I remember playing this game, it was a 2d platformer. I don't really remember whether you used swords or guns (it was probably guns) but I remember 8 levels each with almost impossible bosses (at least for me at that time). Before you could choose those 8 levels there was an intro level with a boss that was very big but fairly easy.

Megaman x 4? You used both megaman x (guns) and zero (swords)

yeah it is thank you very much :D

Hmm sounds kinda like Survival Kids to me... I could be wrong though. Check out the gameplay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=if210xWB2jE

brittneee:
theres this game on the first play station where you start off on a ship, then theres a storm and you wake up on a beach. then some guy takes you to his house and you wake up in his bed. then you walk around the village and talk to people. if you go outside the village things will attack you. also throughout the game you black out and remember things before the ship wreck. PLEASE HELP ME!

Hey guys, i posted here before but nobody could answer what kinda game it was, so here i go again.

It was a game i played somewhere in between 2000-2006 on my PC, it is about a fish. Looked a bit like a goldfish, and you start with that one. He lives in the sea, and he has a place where he can sleep in a cave(he doesn't actually sleep i think). And you have to keep it clean because the screen can get dirty with algae.
Right outside you can play tic tac toe with the fish, and if you let him swim up to the surface you can let him jump trough a hoop, i think you could even bully it by holding the hoop and right before it you could move it so he didnt went trough it.. I also think you could feed it.. eventually if you played enough you could get another egg and you would get another fish you could take care off, i also think you will lose the first fish when you go take care of this one.
It also looked very realistic, the fish not so much.
Also the theme song of the the game was "the entertainer".

So to write it down:
-2000-2006 for PC
-yellow fish to take care off
-lives in the sea
-need to keep clean his cave
-can play tic tac toe and let him jump trough a hoop
-theme song "the entertainer"

thanks again!

i was wondering the name of an old windows 95 or 98 game whereby you were a girl in a side scroller, i dont know much about it but there were wolves, you had to collect gems and there were spikes and pits that could kill you. i believe the colors of the game were quite dark.

Hi, I've been wondering about a couple of games I used to play on PC as a kid:

First is kind of a shoot-em-up. It had two playable characters (drawn in a pretty cartoony style I believe) and I clearly remember that the first level took place in a city. You could complete it by going through the metro (which was at the bottom of the map) or get into a taxi and go the other way into what seemed to be a zoo.
You mostly (only?) used guns, bullets were not very fast (maybe it was throwing rocks) and it was only possible to shoot in 4 directions (I think). Ammo may or may not have been limited, but there was some sort of a pickup right across the street, on the left (probably a secret). My sister is convinced there was local multiplayer, which worked similarly to the Lego series. Even in single player, I think the other character always follwed you around

The other game is a bit harder to describe: I'm not sure if it was RPG or strategy, it involved sth like dwarves and magic in a major way and the only somewhat clear detail I remember is that the selections in the main menu were placed on round shields. Pretty sure there were up to ~5 selections on edges of each shield and there were 5 shields at the start of main menu.

I'd imagine both games were running at 640x480, graphics were not that clear. This was around the year 2000 as I was playing Starcraft roughly at the same time

I'd be happy if anyone could help me out, and sorry if this was answered already. Didn't feel like going through 300 more pages

Alright, so this game I played when I was a kid. I believe it was for the playstation. It was on one of those demo discs, it was a third person zombie game. All I can remember is you start in a room and you leave outside pick up a grenade and make your way to another room to put something in a computer and along the way are zombies.

PLEASE HELP ME!!

So the game... it came with windows back in the 90s. My older sister would use the arrows to move around this creepy house with passageways through bookcases (for some reason the bookcases are a huge detail that sticks out at me) and I would control the gun's trigger. Not really sure what we shot at - might have been skeletons or zombies... but I might be getting skeletons from a confused memory because I also played diablo at the time.

I know that at this time Windows 95 3D movie maker also came with the computer - if that helps..

This shooter game was really special and it's been driving me nuts for years so please help!

thankkkkssss

Help please! All I remember about the game is that it was for old school Gameboy and I could swear it had ogre in the title. For a long time I thought it was the first ogre battle but I can't find any info on it. Basically the gameplay was you bought units and sent them into battle. You watched your unit walk (side scrolling) and eventually meet the enemy and fight. I think that was it... I remember loving it though. I can't shake the feeling that it was called ogre battle. I find no trace of an ogre battle game before snes though. Help?

@ flyawayautumn -The movie is battle royale!

Was it Jill of the Jungle?

I used to play (and love) this game when I was a child. I had it in a yellow cartridge for a tv console. It's a space shooting game, where the player has a top view over the field. Your space ship is flying above the surface (not always ground) but some enemies are not.
Sometimes, by shooting enemies, you can get a bonus which changes your weapon type or an upgrade, if you get a bonus of the weapon that you already have. Basically it's a circle with a number in it floating in the air. As far as I remember: 1 is the basic pew pew, as we used to call it; 3 is a boomerang type weapon; 4 is a beam of fire. Can't quite remember the other ones.
There are 8 levels altogether, each one has it's own theme, a small middle-boss and a boss. The first boss was my favorite :D It's a stationary rabbit, sitting on the ground with it's eyes closed. When it opens it's eyes, it generates 4 (?) smaller rabbits that shoot carrots at you. You win by shooting out both eyes.
The second field is all about volcanos and stuff like that. The boss is a giant, humanoid beast with huge fists.
Number 3 is a water world. The boss is an octopus. (I think the middle boss was an evil mermaid, but i'm not sure)
Four is something like a forest. The boss - some kind of a tree-like monster.
The fifth level is basically about money and gold - enemies shoot gold coins at you etc) The middle boss is a cat also shooting gold coins at you. Can't remember the boss.
Six? Hard to describe the theme of this level. Could be meant to be plain ground. Everything is in brown colors and the boss... A Something that comes out of the ground for a short moment, shoots at you and disappears again. And so until you kill it.
Seven is a world of fire. The boss is an evil moon.
Eight is the last level. I guess the theme is technologies etc. There are two middle bosses (taken from levels one and two, only made more BadAss) and two bosses. Some kind of a monster which, after killed, transforms into another monster and than you have to kill it a second time to win the game.
There, something like that. Hope I didn't make too big mistakes in the description and I'd really like to know how was the game called, because I have no idea.
Thank you in advance! ;)

Gun-Nac (SNES) ( http://satoshimatrix.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/gun-nac-u-0011.png?w=450&h=393 )

Been killing me for years, probably around 97 is when i played it for my old pc, start off in a dome of some sort with a guy looking like a space man with a gun shooting snakes or aliens or something (kinda fuzzy) and then you collected keys and could collect gems, but after the first level you got out of the dome and could explore outside the previous area... please someone, anyone help me find this game!

So I remember playing a game around 2005... I believe it was a single player game for ps2.. I don't remeber very much other than it was a pretty dark game. Mostly dark blue colors on the screen. At one point you are being attacked by skeletons or zombies or something creepy in a graveyard. I'm pretty sure there is no guns in this game but the main character may have had a sword. The screen was above the main character. You weren't playing from their point of view. I think it was a male character. Don't remember a story line. Just that things were trying to kill you. This has been drving me crazy for years. Any help would be great. Thanks.

That is a very vague description! but here's a stab:

Maximo: Ghosts to Glory. Its like a spiritual successor to Ghosts & Goblins and Ghouls & Ghosts.

There was also Maximo: Army of Zin

also, maybe Onimusha

@Doomgriever
That's the one! Thank you so much!

A very long time ago in the early 2000 I had this Post-Apocalyptic (like a desert after a nuclear bomb) war game. It had tanks you could upgrade into various launchers and whatnot. You started in a base with different buildings and you fought against some kind of rebellion (I presume it is a rebellion because I remember their buildings looked like building parts set together, it could be alins though). After you completed a mission you moved on to a different map with a new base and upgrades. I do not remember the dialogue and text since I am swedish and did not understand other languages aside from my own. The case was a box with red and black contrast (I think it was a tank on it. Although it might be something else that looked like a battlefield) and I think the minimum age was 15+. Oh, also when your tank died a dialogue comes up. I think it was a dialogue for every upgrade you did as well.

The game is an RTS btw.

Sorry for being vague but I can't really describe anything more.

Hey!

I am looking for an old game, that I really can't remember the name of.
It's a side-scroller/Platform game, much like Commander Keen and Jazz Jackrabbit (I think this game was greatly inspired by it to be honest)
The game is from about the mid 90's, either a DOS game or an early PC game. You are controlling this green guy with dark green hair, who walks around in a jungle, having a gun (probably a lazer). The maps were huge, very tall (usually had underground/cave sections and high up in the tree's-sections), and you had to collect keys and other objects to proceed in the levels. The game had really awesome rock-genre midi-like music, and was very nice when it came to the 2D graphics.
The healthbar was a pair of eyeballs, that would gradually get more and more red, when getting hit by enemies.

I am pretty sure that the guys name was something like "Gizmo" or something like that, which is probably also the name of the game as far as I remember.

I really hope someone can help me out! Been searching for hours, without results! :/

I used to play a platform game when i was younger. The plot of the game was that you should guide a pink, at least for the first levels, blob of what lookid like slime over bridges that disapeared, and you needed to remove all of the bridges as well as to end up at the right place in the end. Know the description is very bad, but hope someone can help me find it. Thanks in advance:)

Unfortunately I never got to play this game, but I saw parts of it. Before I couldn't play it because it was ps3 or ps2 exclusive. It wasn't a very popular game. It was a fighting game, and I believe the title started with something like Shadows, but I can't be sure. The part that I remember the most was your character got into a fight with a black wolf. I believe he called himself the king of wolves or something like that. I can't remember if you played as a wolf or not (it's not okami by the way).

Was it 3D / 2D?
Was it a versus fighting game? (Like Street Fighter)

Bloody Roar series has a wolf character in it (BR4 for PS2) ( http://www.giantbomb.com/images/1300-1620575 )

Hey guys. I've been trying to remember the name of a game I used to play, and I've been googling for 2 days now and I can't seem to remember.
The game was a top-down racing game, where you could choose different vehicles to race with (I remember you could choose a tank or a motorcycle and some other race cars). The tracks had obstacles like oil and water and some jumpy thingies... It also had a level editor. You also had to set checkpoints for the NPC cars.. If you just created a level without checkpoints the other cars would just stay still...
It also supported multiplayer (offline, of course), where 2 or 3 players could play on the same keyboard.
It looks a lot like Slicks 'n Slide, but I don't think it is.

Also very similar to Retro Racing

Edit: can't remember what system I played it on.. I think it was MS DOS.
