BUMP

I think I may be at the point where I would be willing to reward someone if they can help me track down this game. I've spent hours scouring the internet, using all the search terms I can think of. I have LOTS of details, so I am hoping someone can help me out with this, and if you need more, I can give you more. I NEED THE NAME OF THIS GAME!

PLEASE help me look for this game!

I've had trouble finding this one even after searching through lists of "all" games from the 90's.

This is a mac/pc game(not sure if it was available for both, but I played on mac between 1997-2003) that was an educational dinosaur/paleontology game. It started with getting inside this raptor robot that allowed you to travel around and collect bones and talk with scientists. The scientists were real people so the clips were actual video mixed in with the graphics. You spent the whole time I think with a control panel to travel to different locations.

It was all a bunch of puzzles. You would travel to the desert and have to use dynamite, shovels and then trowels and smaller instruments in the right order with certain sediments and rock layers to get to the fossils.There was a geologist who would help you with this and teach you about different types of rocks he was an older man. Then you would take the fossil to the lab and another scientist would give you tools to clean up the fossils. Then you would have to put together the skeleton like one of those sliding block puzzles.

Please help me find this game! I never got to finish it, and I can't find it anywhere. All the dinosaur games I've seen, or had suggested to me are missing that the game I used to play had video clips of real people/scientists who would help you solve the puzzle. And I can't remember the name of the raptor/robot you were inside of.

EDIT: It is not 3-D Dinosaur Adventure.

Dinosaur Safari maybe?

Unfortunately it's not Dinosaur Safari. It had nothing to do with photographing dinosaurs. The very first thing you did was wander inside this secret bunker and find a giant metal robot (a velociraptor I think) and this woman's voice came on and introduced the program the robot was a part of and then you could make the robot walk and hear it moving. You could then travel to different areas and meet the scientists.

I'm looking for a PS2 game in which the main character wears a helmet with two or three glowing blue stripes. He may or may not have a scarf and I remember that the scenario was pretty dark most of the time. It was either a hack 'n' slash or a third-person shooter. I know it's vague but that's pretty much all I remember and I wanted to try it again and see what it is like

I believe the game in question is called "Shinobi".

Yeah, that's just it! Thank you a lot! I'll try finding and playing it again.

Hey guys, I've been google searching for a particular older Point and Click adventure game I played back when I was in Middle School. I have not be able to find anything about it anywhere. Hopefully someone might be able to help me find it and keep me from thinking I'm insane and hallucinating the memories of this old game. It's going to be a tough one to find I feel.

The game in question I want to say was released between the mid 90's and the first half of 2001 because I played it at my middle school from '99-'01. It was a point and click style adventure/survival game with some FMV elements targeted at a Middle School student level. It's plot was somewhere along the lines of protecting the environment. It also supported a first person perspective. That's all I can remember at the moment, I'll put some more thought into it to see if I can remember more.

Hey, just throwing this one back out there. Still haven't come up with anything on my end.

Is the main character an animal of some kind? I've been looking for an old mid 90s/early 2000s cd rom game that may or may not involve a squirrel/chipmunk, in the game you clean up the beach and things I believe. It's hard to remember what happened in it sadly.

Also in this game there was a crab on the beach who got you to play "cups and balls" where he put something under a shell and there were two other empty shells which he moved around and you had to guess which shell had the prize. If anyone knows what game this was it would be amazing! There might have been a treehouse involved and a garden at some point. Memory is so fuzzy. Sorry if this has nothing to do with your game TitanStrife

Just registered to ask if anyone would know what this game is called,
It's a racing game for the ps1 or ps2, you race as demons or vehicles im pretty sure,
theres a red devil boss or character you can play as he drives like a chariot vehicle or
Something along those lines , its a combat racing game. Theres powerups to shoot weapons and stuff,
Been trying to find this forever if anyone has any ideas that would be great!

Cel Damage? (PS2) ( http://www.giantbomb.com/cel-damage/3030-19116/images/ )

It was more mid evil looking,
Not so much cartoonish
You would race in a tournament
An i think if you won u raced a "boss"
One on one. I just remember some evil monster
Or some character had a vehicle kinda like a
("segway from pual blartall cop")
It was either ps1 or ps2 it was kinda
old so im thinking
It was ps1. This is frustrating as hell.
Maybe there was a level you played in hell.
Idk im trying to remember more

There's this old Mac Game either from the late 1990s or early 2000s, which was basically killing waves of different insects (bees, beetles and the sort) - as added info, I remember that these bugs all left different colours of blood once killed. Also if I remember correctly it was not a 3D game.

Really bugging me that I can't remember! Pun intended haha

EDIT : I'm not sure if there was the word Bumble included in the game name!

Hi!

I remember some details from one game - but can't remember name of it:

1. GTA type
2. Game starts in older times but after half of the game - main character goes to jail. After some years he goes out and everything is changed - it's new age.
3. I remember that in the game was auto garages.(they was horrible - that's why i remember them). There was some missions, which required these garages
4. In the new ages map there was lots of trails. I think I remember them because there was hard mission with them.

Maybe someone know this game? Sorry for my cloudy english.

Sounds like Mafia II to me.
The main character goes to jail for a while, when he comes back everything's changed even the cars, new parts of the city, etc.

First of all, hello everyone.
This topic really interested me because (well, otherwise I wouldn't be here), I'm looking for a game which I can't remember the name, I want to play that game so much again, that I created an account here just for that.

I remember very little of the game.
It was for the PlayStation 2.
I played it between 2003 and 2005.
If I'm not mistaken, it was fantasy-based.
You were a girl, in the middle of the forest (not a regular forest, a kind of... "futuristic" forest.) and you could skate around...
I'm pretty sure that wasn't the whole game, but a mini-game or something.
I also remember some of the start screen (at least I think it was the start screen) where it appears some letters, which are the name of the game, but I can only seem to remember the letters: SH
I'm not sure if it was in the start, middle, ending, I can't remember at all.

Would be great if you guys could help me.

Thanks.

Hi,

Can anyone remember an old playstation puzzle game wherein a target rock (or boulder) is pushed to its designated position? There are many rocks that you can move to place the target rock to the target position.

hello..would appreciate it if somebody remembers..thanks

This game was in a bundle whit some iMac's end eMac's back than

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

Hello, I found this thread about two years ago, and I'm so happy it's still alive! I'd really appreciate help finding a couple of really old and I think not so well known games. Actually I wish to ask about many many games, but for now i'll only describe 3. Since i'm not very good with explaining things, I have drawn small doodles to help visualize what i'm talking about

1. http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/148/3/d/1_by_thalassa_star-d7k25xw.png
It was a strange arcade game I had on a very very very old Laptop with Windows 98 installed to it. You played as a little blue and white striped ball who would have to "ride" through a maze of sorts, that was checkered dark red and black. I think once you made it go in one direction it could not stop until it hit a wall, so it was sort of a think before you act kind of game, and I'm sure there had to be walls scattered about the field and other obstacles which would be your inevitable demise if you ran into them. I'm not sure the electric generator-like things were around the edges, but I remember the game was pretty difficult for me (at least at the age I was in) and I was afraid to run into the walls at the very edges of the field, so they were probably dangerous.

2. http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/148/c/a/2_by_thalassa_star-d7k25xs.png
Another sort of Arcade game, I think I played it at the very same Laptop with Win98. It was a cartoon-y game that was like a puzzle. You had to flip the squares (within each was drawn a fragment of a rope), and it had to make at least one rope path that lead from the left top corner to the right bottom corner. It was a sort of Firework-y Game and I'm sure the point was to make sure the fire at the rope's one end reached something that would make more firefworks, aaand there was a Chinese dragon sitting at the top left corner, most certainly blue, but I don't remember very well how exactly it looked, so I drew it a little improvised...

3. http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/148/1/c/3_by_thalassa_star-d7k25xl.png
This one was probably for a console, maybe a Sega or even something like Nintendo 64. It was very crudely drawn, I mean the game itself. Almost exactly how I drew it in the image above.
The game was a platformer where you played as a Penguin and had to rescue little Chicks scattered across the screen. There were throwable objects in each level too (the "T"s in my image) which you could use to defend against... cats? I think that was the enemy in the first levels or maybe even all of them, I'm not sure. As soon as you approached a chick it would start to follow you and you had to pass the blue portal to make the chicks go home, probably, and you earned score for that. I know very well that there were chicks with sunglasses in levels very often w` I love that detail. The game resembles a lot a more modern game called Granny in Paradise, which sadly is kind of hard to find a full version of, but it pretty much has this little penguin game as it's main predecessor in terms of gameplay.

Hey guys, I remember a old game for pc where you could control little I think yellow guys. You needed to save them or something by building tools in a little shed. Most levels are on some kind of island. And its not Lemmings or Zoomings.
it was like from birds view camera with rts/puzzle elements. That is all I remember aand yea, I think you had to gather resources iam not sure.

I was about to say you're spot on based on the description from the wiki, but viewing the gameplay I luckily found just now showed it's very different from what I remember umu' so that's sadly not it. Thanks so much for the reply though! I appreciate it!

kovy123:
I remember playing this old computer game back in the 90s but the game could have been created much earlier. It was alongside Commander Keen and Oregon Trail if that helps. The setting was in a jungle and I believe what happens is your plane crashes and natives steal your girlfriend (not 100% sure). You play as a man in a kind of safari outfit. it was a text based game and you could also walk around and point and click on items too. I recall walking to the left and seeing an item that I always thought looked like a LOG but it was actually a SCROLL. And you would type in PICK UP SCROLL and your character would pick up the scroll. Also there was a VINE and you had to type in SWING ON VINE to cross over a large gap. I think also you might pick up a piece of meat. So once you've collected all the things you can collect you have no choice but to go back to the right and talk to the native villagers and for some reason they put you in JAIL and if I remember correctly the natives are boiling water and telling you they are going to cook you. Your character is now locked in a cell and the only other person in the room is a GUARD. You can speak to the guard and use items but I never figured out how to get past this part. I was only a little kid when I played this game and well I can't remember the name and it's bugging the crap outta me. Does anyone recall playing a game similar to this?

This sounds like Hugo 3 - Jungle of Doom. Here's an image from where I think you went to jail: image

Maybe search for "Bumbler Bee" instead. At least that what I found.

http://www.mobygames.com/game/bumbler-bee-luxe

But when you have it, why you need to download it? Unfortunately this is a Classic OS game so it won't run on new mac's after OSX 10.7. Can't find what the minimum OS version required, if it's possible to run on OS 8.1 you could run it whit Basilisk II http://basilisk.cebix.net/

Hey everyone! I'm trying to figure out the name of an olddd game...
I have no clue if it was for Nintendo or sega. In the game you were in some sor of building and you could turn into some weird robot spider thing. The game was an over head view...
Help! Please and thanks :)

Hi i need help. I was playing this game when i was 6-8 maybe it was a space 3d shooter when you and your crew ship was abducted by larger one, you were looking for survivors on the ship that captured yours and teleport them to yours for additional information from them - you were fighting with some alien silver blue women aliens and gigant robots in hangar bays or flying bugs. There were characters you could choose to play - each with different missions (one on a ship one in a tunnels - finding elevator) and eq. You could find magnetic shield (called shield emitter) and there was some kind of glowing rock...Character's were 2 men (one bald i think and one brown haired guy) and women in red suit Graphics were good as i recall... Could you help me find it? i have searched for it for soo long (its a pc game) - in tutorial section you were jumping and meeting some kind of doctor at the end.... sorry i don't remember much :( it was looking simillar to ME in design and i remember that characters had an pda on them

Hi All,

I've been wracking my brains on this one. It's a game I remember playing the demo of during school. So, here's what I can remember:

1) A space strategy game, but played from a "side on" perspective (It was 2d)
2) You controlled a "mothership" which looked like a flying dome
3) The maps were not big open areas, they were maze like "tunnels"
4) You advanced by building static structures
5) The objective was always to kill the other mothership / builder
6) Enemies weren't asymmetrical - just different colours.

Pretty much all I can remember at this stage! The year was 1997 / 1998 - Starcraft was just about to be released so I don't think this game exactly hit the mainstream side of things!

Because it doesn't run on Mavericks and unfortunately it's just a Demo :/
Too bad really wanted to dig up some childhood memories and finally find a full version and maybe finish the game haha

HI! FUNNY THING, I WAS ALSO LOOKING FOR THAT GAME A FEW DAYS AGO... I REMEMBERED THE NAME, "THE HOOK-UP"
BUT IM AFRAID IT DOESNT EXIST ANYMORE :(
ANYWAYS, I HOPE IT WAS HELPFUL!! :)

aetherna:
Okay, so I'm trying to find an older browser game. It was really well done in my opinion. It used to be on addictinggames before the nickelodeon takeover, I think around 2005. I don't know if it was downloadable.

The premise of the game is that it's a very engaging, realistic, and complex 'dating game' type. You go into a town and meet Sarah, a worker in the Coffee Bean (I think that's the name of the coffee shop) and she's a lesbian. There are quite a few other characters, some you can date and some you can't) including a guy named Matthew who if you play as a female (I'm not sure if that's the only option) you call a horn dog in the library where you meet him.

There are a lot of 'conflict' moments where you have to talk people down from emotional moments, and you legitimately learn a lot about the people around you in the game, and it's very interesting. There are TONS of endings. The town is pretty much open, it's 2-D, with a tattoo parlour, a restaurant, the coffee shop, the library, the cinema, an art gallery...

If anyone knows a game like this and/or where it can be found, please let me know right away! I've been hunting for it almost since the nick took over addictinggames and I can't remember it :(

Thanks for creating this thread by the way.

hi, new to this forum wich i stumbled across when searching for a old game and this seems like the place to get help.

the game was for ps1 and i believe it was a adventure game. You would start the game by waking up in your bed in a small town. you do some quests which leads you to finding this pink dragon i think it was which you then take care of and lvl up etc. the guy you are playing is wearing a knights armor and the combat is turned based, i also believe the last boss was some big black monster with many tentacles. would love to find out what the game is named.

Bruno Senra:

I used to play this PC game on a "1000 games" CD I had as a kid (from PCGamer I think?), so it's old (but not too much, '90s? 16 bits era looking I believe) and 2-D and small. Here's all I can remember of it: You'd play as wizards in a platformer, your point was to save some children and there was co-op option (different colored little wizards? unsure if 2 players or up to 4). The mood of the game was pretty somber and gory, you could die from spikes and such (I think there were giant boulders or something like that too), and instead of focusing on action it was pretty puzzle based (there were enemies, tho), you'd have to press levers to activate mechanisms and find colored keys to open same colored doors and etc., so you could find your way through the maze and reach the end of the level.

I guess that's all I can remember, here's hoping it's not too obscure a game, hehe. Thanks!

Bump because I really wanna find this and I've searched a lot but got nothing. Hope it's not some indie forgotten game.

Hey guys! There is this game that I've being searching relentlessly through the internet for and found my way here, unfortunately I don't remember too much of the game but I'll tell you as much as I can! (Not completely sure but I think it was either on ps1 or ps2) Basically, It's more of a multiplayer arcade sort of game. You'd pick a character (these being different animals/beasts of sorts [I do remember one was a unicorn type thing]) and you'd play on this sort of checkers-game-like field, as in you can only move your player one space at a time and there were different biome sort of areas (I remember grass was one)and when you and another player landed on the same space, you'd fight. The winner would have a winning sort of animation and I remember one of the animations was the beast-like thing would pull out a net with a human in it and bring it towards his mouth as if he would eat it. That's really all I can remember besides this game being out for quite a few years now! Thanks a bunch, hope you have better luck than I have! (Ps: I also believe you had multiple lives/game pieces/characters/players able to be used [aka not one life, more than one piece])

Hello, I remember playing a game where you were a boy with some sort of glove, I want to say the glove had a blue gem thing on the top, that held different things that you would collect and bring back to the village that you lived in. The glove could hold a lot of different things, the thing I remember the most were building. I'm pretty sure it was for the N64 but I could be wrong. Sorry if that's not much to go off of but that's all I can remember.

bumped for science!

Zerodyme87:
Ok, i am new here and i dont know if anyone already posted this.

it is a ps1 title, i dont know the year.

the opening cinematic shows you in first person view being toted through what looks like a hospital of sorts. and then these two tack-looking things go in your eyes and then the game starts. you are some sort of vehicle and the first level was a circus type level. there was a bouncing ball somewhere on it and to get through each level you had to get these large white orbs. there were weapons scattered around the level and it was all open ended too. you could also pick up these polygon-like shapes around the level and they followed behind your ship and i think they increased your health. sometimes you can get knocked out of the walls in each world and on the outside you can drive around but there were these u-turn signs that if you touched them they will throw you back into the level. this has been stumping me for years....

I made an account just for this game; I remember playing it in school when I was in first grade, which was around 2005. You controlled a guy and you had to go around a platform based level and collect vehicle parts. You had to solve puzzles to get the pieces; there were puzzles like kinetics and magnets and stuff. When you collected enough parts, you could make a vehicle and race it against the CPU. I remember you could make a blimp, a racecar, and an airplane. I've been looking for this forever, hopefully someone out there remembers it.

DaVinci31:
I played this one game around my early childhood (definitely on a disk/CD), it could have been ps1 or dreamcast and even pc ( leaning towards ps1, though, it had solid graphics for its time, which also could have been pc I guess . . . )

Anyways . . .

-it was definitely an adventure/puzzle type of game
-it was 1st Person POV
-I believe it was a point and click type of game

-there was one situation I vaguely remember in which I believe you are shopping or collecting some items around some type of circular room (which might or might not have been outdoors near water)

-it had a very fun yet creepy vibe (thinking back to it now anyway)
-I'm pretty sure I played it at school . . . I remember it being educational, or at least it felt like it (as I remember it)
-I think it involved following some other character (who may not have been human), this character maybe also being the "mascot" of sorts for the poster/CD image of this game

Any help is appreciated, I really want to get my hands on this game again.

EDIT: The situation I remembered involved some type of cart I believe, if that helps.

EDIT #2: Also, the colors were pretty bright and positive in nature. I believe the characters and settings in the game were animated in a 3D format as well. The game could have also been one of those types of games in which you do everything with your mouse, and when its time to move or continue, there is a sequence animation that moves the character, in 1st Person POV as I stated above, to the next setting. Thanks again!

Posting again because I'm desperate :l

Ok... so I played this a few years ago, don't know the game consol but it wasn't a computer game. There was this little alien with a gravity... thing... it wasn't round and it was colorful. You started out tiny and pushed the gravity thing around collecting small things and gradually could collect bigger things until you were huge and could pick up whole buildings. It had a really weird name. Any ideas?
