Hey guys, would really appreciate some help finding the name of this game I've been thinking of for years!!!

Its a 2D side scroller game from the 90s. I remember you could go an alien race/tribe which would float around and discover new areas from a sort of portal system. You could collect these relics/artifacts/orb things and build certain types of buildings. You could create a warrior class by sending your worker aliens in to the warrior building and could also fight other tribes of floaty aliens!

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!!

Here is a pic to help, I'm starting to question this games existence. And my own.

Is it M.U.L.E?

I need help remembering, my Dad had this game on a floppy disc and it is similar to boulder dash. You were a man who looked like rayman(It was not rayman)except i think you were in a prison outfit I don't know. What you did was, you were underground (digging out I think) and there were people chasing you and when you went underneath a boulder with a person chasing you the boulder would fall down and crush him. I have searched for years now and I stumbled upon this forum so I was hoping somebody might know.

Oh man, I used to play this game all the time when I was a kid. It was a PC game in the 90's, and it had an overlying story line of some princes searching for a princess. It was kinda board game style, and had tons of mini games. Gah. If I remember more, I'll add it...
It was kinda odd, with tongue in cheek humor. I'm not 100% positive they were princes. Urg. You could play battleship with a octopus/kracken as one of the mini games. Oh, there were lots of different areas of the map, a castle/town area, a desert area, a mountain area...

@CD-R It's not MULE but thanks for trying! I guess I should mention the game was on the PC, it's most likely we were playing it on Win 98!

i will rage if i dont find this game, the story a bit compicated your in a under ground city and something hapens and you get a over heat bar that when you ues a special move the bar gos up and if it reaches 100% it's game over and you have to start agen. you need to get to the suffice to stop what ever it is. i know that it was on plastation but i dont know what one sorry i dont know eney more than that ow i remember one of the first missions or chapters was in a subay whith monsters. thanks for the help

It's an old pc game I think it's sort of like risk except I know u get tanks, planes boats and I think maybe soldiers on different stages and your are trying to take over the opponents castle I believe... There is a red team and a yellow team for sure and maybe a blue team. On some stages you can't view something's until you move your piece a little closer. Please help

There's this puzzle game I used to play when I was a kid that I cannot find, and cannot get out of my head. It involved these two kids (siblings, brother and sister) who were looking for their uncle in a lost city. You had to do various puzzles to help out the creatures and such there to get to the lost city. I remember something about goo bags. Also, very clearly remember there being a logic puzzle where you had to place worms on this bus thing according to numbers and figure out where each had to go. Once you got it the "bus" would say, "Come along bugs!" and zoom off, spraying the children with goo. There was also a puzzle involving monekys; had to rope off a pit and do the right math to give the monkey the right length of vine. Once they got into the city, you had to place tiles with words so that they matched correctly or something to allow for the animals stuck across the gorge to cross. I know it's all kind of thrown together, but if anybody can remember what this is, I'd be very appreciative for the info! Driving me nuts...

I played a game probably around the late 90s, there is a tiny man, I think dressed in green?, who is adventuring through a house, at one point you're in the kitchen and I think you have to avoid knives or something, and at one point you're in a bathroom and you have to run on the bar of soap and ride a bubble up somewhere and you go to a kids room and a garage I think and you have to climb on boxes and stuff, Amy idea what game this is, and what game system it is for?

I'm trying to find the name of a game I remember playing in the 90's.

From what I remember, the game was probably a third person, platform-shooter.
You played a guy entering a monster filled house, which you were trying to get through, armed only with a gun.

Hopefully that will be enough for someone to know what I'm talking about, since that is about all I remember about it.

This is pretty vague request aswell. I remember playing a psx game as a kid where you would jump around in different styles of square arenas, throwing logs and rocks at eachother, and in between battle, you could buy items from a vending machine + gear to improve your abilitys?

the arenas i remember was a leveled grass square with a tree at the top left Corner, and a space arena, where rocks(meteors) would come rumbling down from the sky.

you played vs 3 other npcs, or co-op/multiplayer as i recall.

Aoky-tati:
I cannot remember the whole name, it's like "Kingdom Something", and it was about mini battles on streets with wizards and warriors, i kinda remember it was purple (maybe blue?) or pink, i remember that one of the characters can create a magic shield and it was pink and other (if not the same) can teletransport to other part of the screen. The characters were like rpg.
I always ask my brother about the game's title but he can't remember either, just now it comes to his mind it's sth like "Kingdom Fighter" but not so. Pleease, help!

Is it Kingdom Under Fire: A War of Heroes?

No, it's not that one because I also saw it when doing my research about the game I'm trying to remember&find>< But Thanks^^
It was kinda DOS or 2D or something like that, not having such a 3D view as on "Kingdom Under Fire"

.

I'm not sure if this was requested already, and there's so many pages to this thread... I'm just too lazy to look for it.

I'm looking for a computer game I played in 1993. It was some sort of detective game. The playable character had, I believe grey coat and blue hat, and you never saw his/her face. I remember one of the levels being a school.

Anyone know what I'm talking about here?

Hey I used to play a game several years back on my phone.It was about two balls,one red and one blue on a spaceship saving the universe be rescuing some stranded dudes and one of them betrays you at the end and after you defeat him the game restarts.I also remember that you always play with the red fat ball and in the maps you have to dodge some radioactive goo and sometimes collect rocks in a teleport.You could play with the blue ball in a virtual map that as you progress in the game had more stuff in it.

Could you please help me?

Hi. I've been looking for this game since yesterday. It's a game for the ps2 format (not sure if it has an xbox version.) So the game is like "Super Monkey Balls". The player is stuck inside a pink ball and you must through the map before your opponents or before the timer reaches a certain number, I'm not sure, I think some are races and others are timers. You can play with a different variation of characters, plus you can play it multiplayer (no, not online) with your friends. I remember that 2 of the characters are a snowman and the other guy had a pumpkin head. The curse sometimes moved to make it more difficult to go through it without falling down. When you fall you restart the level I think.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

GavHan1992:
I have a game, it was for ps1, it was a racing game but kinda futuristic, each car had a weapon built into it , some if not most of the cars locked on, the lock on was like blue squares that went or red when it locked, you could upgrade your cars weapons and speed and shit or you could buy a new car, in the end of the game, or from what i remember getting upto when you race/kill/beatt the last guy you win and then you get put back in jail anyway and it ends, i cant remember too much about it though, i remember you started with cars with wheels and some cars were big and heavy, some were small, and then there were some hover cars too, no clue what it was called,

another game was a dungeon crawler and its for pc, its old and the dungeons were randomly generated, from memory the area you hadnt been was all just pure white and you could see like paved sections and walls and stuff when you got close enough to them, going through dungeons you get spells that you can kill monsters with and it would say what happens down the bottom, like so and so hits goblin with fire bolt for 20, if you got cursed gear you couldnt take it off or something like that, but yea thats all the info i can remember

EDIT: i found the 2nd game it was called Castle of Winds.

The first one might just be Wipeout. I'm not really all that sure though.

Hey, anybody know this game? It's for the n64 or the ps1. But i'm pretty sure that it was for the N64. You were this little black bug thing and you could run around and jump into other animals and control them. In one level there was an elephant you could jump into and control. I can't remember what you had to make the elephant do but this game has been on my mind for a while, and i really want to learn what it's name is so i can relive my child hood memories lol.

Hi! I have been trying to remember this game for so long now.
It's pretty old. I played it when I was little.

- it had a person running on a pyramid type thing.
- and collecting jewels/ diamonds
- on some levels a devil looking thing would come up and try to kill you.
- there were also skeletons trying to kill you.
- you could get an extra life by capturing a heart.

please help!

Castlevania i think, did the character use a whip to attack?

all i remember from this ps2 title is that the demons you fought turned into paper money or tickets when you killed them, i think it was a ninja game...possibly

Pretty sure you are talking about Space Station Silicon Valley, pretty awesome game! Never really got the hang of it as a kid though :P

Here an episode of Screwattack's Video Game Vault about it: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/video-game-screwattack/711980

I myself am searching for a game from the nineties (I think). It was a sidescrolling game set in space (not sure). The main character looked a lot like a guy from Metal Slug and the only thing I really remember that there was a gun with bullets that grew longer when you held the space key. So if you held it for a brief moment a normal bullet would shoot out but when you held it longer it would grow.

Hey, I'm looking for a game like crazy, I THINK the game was undead-related. It started in a cave, you controled a woman with blue hair that used magic, I think, a boy, and a big guy with a shield, I guess. It's a PC game, thanks for any help

100% populous the begining

Trying to remember a game probably ps1 maybe ps2 you were a solider of some type and to get other soldiers and tanks and stuff you collected boxes and stacked them in a certain pattern together, sorta thinking top down view(not quite gta look) maybe just off top down.
Any help would be much loved.

Jet Set Radio

Hey everyone.. Please Help : O

I am searching for a game from around 97-2000. It's an old-school 3d adventure/rpg game. I remember that graphic was very cartoonish , maybe a little lego-like. You play with some different characters - knights, wizards. I can also remember few levels - in one you fought frog-men with spears in the sewers (in this one you needed torch to see where you are going), another one was an escape from a mine (you started it chained to a ball), there was also a level with lava rooms and one with a pirate ship i believe - you could have start them all independently in the game menu. Any ideas?

Carmen Sandiego?

you might be thinking of jet set radio

Ok, here's mine, and I hope I explain this well enough.
It was PC, i think we played it in '93 or so. you were a fugitive that had just recently been captured by some galactic marshall/policewoman/bounty hunter female. It's a detective sort of game, like Myst except side-scroller-ish, where you search for tools and clues that advance the story (don't know exactly what those are called). The first level you have to repair the ship, you've crashed on a planet, at some deserted outpost. Other levels include gambling at a casino to get money and information, finding alien eggs, being captured by monks of some sort. there's also something to do with finding beacons throughout the game.
Hopefully that's good enough, i'd love to play this game again.

It was for NES/SNES (I honestly can't recall which), and it was some sort of evolution based adventure game. You would start each level as a new and slightly more evolved organism. And you would end each level by eating a bizarre colorful macguffin that would evolve you into the next level. Name?

2 Games:

They are both PC games, the first was a 2D game where you where trapped in a block maze with water and other obstacles and you had to get different colored keys to proceed. To not restart at the beginning level each time you play, you had to input a password. There were at least a hundred levels and it had cool music. Can't remember much else...

The second game was a game with a bunch of dots on a grid layout. On some of these dots, a line segment would be attached at one end and they would swing around in a circle. You could control one of these line segments and could make the line segment switch which dot it was connected to and change the direction of the swinging (I think). The goal was to guide your line segment to some other part of each level without it coming into contact with any other lines.

I often lay awake at night wondering what these games were called, wondering if I'll ever play them again...
