HELP PLEASE!!
PC game from 90s.
I remember it being a space game i think, you have to grow things in different climates and they turn into crates once i clicked on them, which are loaded on to a spaceship (what I remember). Can't remember the aim of the game. just that I can raise the land which was green and would change color i.e. snowy or sand, and I had little workers (martians?) which collected things I clicked on. The game was colorful and I think it was around 1994? probably no earlier as I was 3 and played it when I was around 6-9yrs so was around 1997-1999. I don't think I remember much else apart from the 'ship' was circle shape like a dough nut and divided into sections that you had to upgrade to get with different climates and the loading bay and there is only one view 'i think', it was third person were I was controlling everything and I could click left/right to see the next section. It was very addicting and adventure/strategic?

So frustrated, been looking for a few years now and not sure I'll ever find it. If someone could work there magic and find a video or picture I'll know if it's it straight away! please please please help me!
If anyone remembers anything else about this game please let me know! As I don't think I have enough info. :(

Jonathan Sandig:
I have one, it might have already been found but I haven't read through all 35 pages, haha.

In the game, you were a person who had to push around blocks and move them to make little bridges so that you could cross water and get to a flag/hole thing that would take you to the next level. I think it was for Windows 95, but it might have been 98, no later than that. There were things like ice skates that you could use to skate across the ice in ice levels when you had to push blocks instead of getting thrown around. There were also pads that would speed you up if you stepped on them and throw you the wrong way, (or sometimes the right way). It was all about pushing the blocks in the right order to the right place to get to the flag/hole that would take you to the next level. Please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much

Actually, I think this is the game I was thinking about too.

Xenetethrae:
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...

Bear with me here, this game was bugging my girlfriend, not me. So I don't really know how to describe it. She swore it had to do with keys or something, but when she read your description, she was sure you were talking about the same game.

Please someone help our poor lost souls

Chip's Challenge, guys.

Hey everyone.

This has been bugging me for a long time! I really hope someone will find/know it.

It's a game I played as a little girl, I was in HK then so it was about... 1997-2000 - I played it in my primary school. It was a game where from what I can only remember is collect diamonds? That was the quest I think? And for some reason, I only remember the setting as like.. Sandy coloured - somehow like sand dunes? or Egypt? And one more thing I could remember was some sort of priest.

I keep trying to remember even the context of the game, but I just can't. Whenever thinking about it I can only feel like I really loved that game. That is all I can remember and I am really sorry if it is really brief!

It wasn't a scary/horror game, and I don't think it was action-packed either. It was just like, a really good game.

Thank you guys! Hope to hear from you soon!

EDIT: P.S. It wasn't like a pac-man like game. it was more like.. mario-ish like the animation? that's all I can remember vaguely. Thanks!

Hey all, i am just trying to find a old pc game and was wondering if anyone can help.
its a pc game and its human vs alien, i do remember that you have to send out drillers to a pool type thing and drill for money and they can be upgraded once, you can also hop out of your vehicle and into any vehicle you produce and about half way through the game you can choose to stay human or join the alien and the alien race started with S, and at the end of the game the humans will kill the aliens of the aliens will transform the universe into them

I remember playing this playstation 1 demo i think it had a blue hand on it. on the demo were games like geks: enter the gecko, bloody roar, tomb raider, and like an indiana jones type game where you swing on ropes and if you got too close to the edge you'd fall on jagged rock and you'd see the guy all bloody

Sounds nearly exactly like Startopia, although it's a 2001 game and the bio deck was not the main focus of the game.

My Dad got this game from the internet I think and put it on a floppy disc when I was a kid. It is similar to Boulder Dash (but it was not Boulder Dash). You were digging underground and had police chasing you (They looked like Rayman with just a head, body, hands, and feet) and when you went underneath a boulder it would crush the person chasing you. I don't remember a name or what you were trying to do, but I need help finding it.

I have a game i'm looking for, might be hard to find. So the game was from around the late 90's early 2000's and was a rpg/adventure game for the pc. it wasn't a huge title, i think it was made from a smaller company at the time. but in the game you take place as a girl with blue hair, i think she trained with monks and her main weapon is her hands. I remember fighting animals in a forest is one of the first type of quest. the roaming was a bit like zelda but the graphics were similar to "secrets of mana". I have been looking for this game for years and trying to remember, if anyone can tell me i'd be the happiest man in the world.

I think the game you're describing is Hostile Waters: Antaeus Rising. It's one of those early RTS's where you could drive/pilot the vehicles you produce.

Thanks for helping, it is close to the game but it is not it

My brother and I are trying to remember a game from when we were kids but only remember a few things from it. It was either a NES or SNES game, and each level had a different theme and a castle, I remember candy, cake, bubbles, clouds and pumpkins. Anyone have any idea what that would be?

Batou667:

AZChick924:
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?

Carmen Sandiego?

No. Carmen wears red hat and coat. I believe it was a mystery game with some strategy elements thrown in.

EDIT: Found it. It's called "Midnight Rescue".

I've been thinking of the name for years... All I gotta say is Chip's Challenge.

JoeLeedale:
I've got another one. This was on PC, maybe Windows 95 or earlier. It was and Ocarina of Time style gameplay and you had to skate (I THINK) around rooms to collect keys. The rooms were almost mazes and you only stopped moving if you hit a wall. Pretty sure you had to collect different kinds of boots to move on different surfaces, like some boots that could walk on ice instead of skate. The skating thing may only have been in one particular room though, not sure

I've been thinking of the name for years... All I gotta say is Chip's Challenge.

There was the PC game that resembled some form of a Karate tournament. You can train your skills and stuff to build your character; almost like UFC 12. I always lost to the Tonfa guy.

I wish I remembered the name of this game!

hey everyone Ive been searching on the net and I've found the screenshot of the game I don't recall the name of: http://de.acidcow.com/pics/20110224/games_98.jpg
I havent read all messages in this topic so perhaps it has already been asked.
What is the name of this game Im really eager to find out
Could anyone please help?? thnx

Emiscary:
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?

That should be E.V.O.: The Search for Eden for the SNES.

It's either Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines or its expansion, Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty.

Was it a strategy game? Also can you say approximately what year this would have been?

Is it Pitfall 3D: Beyond the Jungle? This one is cool they got Bruce Campbell to do the main character's voice.

Ok, So i've been searching for this game for years, and I don't remember a lot about it, so any help would be great.
It was released around the dawn of 3D gaming, and had graphics similar to Dark Cloud, Jet Force Gemini, and Spyro.
In the beginning your village burns.
You can tame monsters and fight with them.
The first monster you get looks like a birds beak on a bird foot, and it's black and red (like magma)
You meet a girl who has a four armed monster that is a definite rip-off of machamp.

I played this a long time ago at my grandmother's neighbors house, and have been searching everywhere for it.
If anyone has any idea that would be awesome.
(It's not monster rancher)

Is it Jade Cacoon?

It was some creative/educational PC game I had for my old computer, It had a red pencil/crayon/pen dude that randomly came up on the screen and scared the ever-living shit out of me.

I can remember his harrowing look exactly.

I wish to find that game so maybe I can re-live the nightmares of my past... or just do it for teh lulz.

yes it was and i think it was about 10-12 years ago

Ok this will be a tough one.... prolly because I was playing this game before most of u were born....lol.

It was a game I used to play in computer class when I was back in school. See in the old days computers were expensive and even in a private school we only had computer class once a week and for the rest of the time we used pens and paper (lol). I'm talking late 80's here!

Anyways it was a text based rpg game on the apple IIc or IIe (cannot remember which). Basically the ides was to mine gold as a gold miner/fossicker. You were presented with options at each point in the game. For example, early on you had to buy some mining equipment but you would be asked if you wanted to steal it instead.....

Any thoughts would be great.

I played this when a parents' friend's house in the early to to mid-90's on what I think was a PC-compatible. There were at least two games in a series where a guy in a spacesuit 2D platforms though corridors. I really don't think it was Commander Keen.

Right so. I should have asked this earlier but what platform was it on? Also was it a 1st or 3rd person view, similar to Giants: Citizen Kabuto?

It's just it sounds a little like Dark Colony but the hopping in and out of vehicles sounds way different.

So, I remember playing a game in the 90's. It was in black and white (at least the one I played, there may have been a color version too).

I don't remember what exactly you played as, but they weren't animals. Instead they were blobs or something. Or maybe dust bunnies? I remember that there was one part where you shook another character's hand, and you could control the force of the handshake. Another part I remember is that the one of the characters said "Cheerio!" when he said good bye.

We had a Compaq at the time, and I think the game may have been a demo version. I think it only let us play to a certain point then it ended, but I could be wrong.

I was thinking about it a couple days ago, and I've been trying to remember the name! Thank you in advance!

its on the pc and you could toggle between both, but you start the match in first person

Please help me find this game

it was a pc game somewhere between 1998-2004.
it had tiny orange/brownish characters.
it had big maps and you could play it in two modes campaign and another one i dont remember. in it we had differnt weapons like clubs, straw, spade, bazookas,etc. in the game if u kill anyone they disintegrate and form liquids which u can suck from a straw and create new characters.

it had different coloured tiles which were a part of a wall which when hit upon did something specific like teleporting to a different location on the map...we could also play against the computer where we controlled different brown characters and computer controlled blue purple red characters....pls help!!
it had many levels and one level was named- Honey i shrunk .... i dont remember the last part....

Is it Genewars?

Here's one for ya, looking for a First Person Shooter that came out either late 90's, or early 2000's (2000-2004?)
One of the main selling points of the game was the multiplayer aspect it had, one of the very few maps I remember well was a map with two teams, and the "terrorist" team had to reach the top of a missile silo, and interact with a console to launch the missile, while the defending team had to stop the attackers from doing this, the map had several hill sides, and bunkers.
The second map I remember was a desert-like city, with buildings much like adobe's, but the part of the map that made this different then what most people would now adays compare to counter strike was that you could leave the city and go into the desert and snipe the people in the city, but you were more vulnerable to being shot yourself.
The last map I remember was a forest'y map with lots of pine trees, and several bunkers placed across the map, and the objective in this map I'm fairly certain was for the attacking team to plant bombs on objectives.
That's all I really remember.

Overall the game had graphic's similar to counter strike, but I know for certain it wasn't called counter strike.

Anyone remember any games like this?

Edit; also this game was for PC.

Hey
I remembered Playing turn-based RPG for Ps1
I've been through lists but can't seem to remember what the cover or story was about.
The only thing I remember was Early in the game (Maybe the beginning) you're in a school (Pretty sure the school was related to magic, not 100% positive though)
Not real sure for I was very little when I played it.
Release Date was probably between 96' and 98'.
Thanks alot!

Welp, I am utterly stumped. 2000 was a massive year for games which saw me piling a lot of time into games like Deus Ex and Baldurs Gate. It was a long time before I got into FPS in any kind of serious way. A couple of games I never played from around that time were things like Outcast and even Far Cry, but I don't think either of those had the strategy elements you described.

It sounds intruiging though. If you ever find out what it was, please message me with the answer. I'll keep looking and I'll let you know if I ever find it.

Hang on, it wasn't Natural Selection was it? That was a mod for half life and, I think, multiplayer only though. Didn't really play it much as I soon discovered They Hunger.
