This is driving me absolutely crazy so i'll try to describe as best I can!
There was a game for either playstation or xbox 360 and it was like a Japanese game show with really strange games. I think there was one game where everyone was in giant zorbing balls and you had to knock each other into lava and some racing games too?

Sounds like Fusion Frenzy 1/2

So I'm looking for an old CGA game around 1990. Could be earlier. I played it on an old DOS computer with a real floppy disk. It was like Double Dragon except the fights took place all in one screen/area and bad guys just kept coming out til you beat them all. Then you choose which direction and went to the next screen. You could play 2 players like double dragon. Also you could pick up basic weapons. Any ideas???

There is this game I used to play as a kid on a Windows '95 computer. The fact that I can't remember hardly anything is driving me nuts and I just can't find it. All I remember was it was a sidescroll (maybe shooting?) game about some kind of alien.... In my memory it was some kind of black/dark alien-like being in a (space?) suit/armor and it was on Windows 95...

Hey, I really need your help. It's been bugging me for some time now, and I just can't remember!!
So ok, it's a french video game, for windows 95-98 (not sure which one), it's with magic and monsters... Sort of point and click type. It was really cute, had funny looking animation (if you click at a piece of paper that was under a windshield wiper it will turn into an airplane and fly away, the stop sign at the street turned into a rocket, etc.) It looked like it was all drawn by hand, like doodles. There was something with the stairs, and you had to find a candle and a key.. and funny lookin' eyes would appear in the dark. I got to the part where there was a lot/parcel, and (maybe?) a hunted house but couldn't figure out what I was supposed to do, because it was in French! :D

Thanks so much if you guys could help me remember this game
The game is a robot war fight like Age of Empire

I could only remember the following details:
- the game starts with a chief robot that can build many things
- can build airport, robot factory, etc
- there're planes and another robot that can recycle the broken robots
- we can manufacture transport helicopter
- play with multiple computerized enemy of different colors
- player has to build something to mine the resource from the ground
- every robot has a little bar near it indicating their life. When it's healthy, the bar is green. Otherwise, it's orange or red.

Supreme Commander? ( http://www.giantbomb.com/supreme-commander/3030-1901/images/ )

It's like Supreme Commander but not exactly that one.
I played this game in 2002 or 2003.
The name of the game is one word starts with "A" but I'm not very sure about it.

Thanks anyways!

Could be the predecessor to Supreme Commander maybe? Total Annihilation ( http://www.giantbomb.com/total-annihilation/3030-3594/images/ )

Abuse? ( http://www.giantbomb.com/abuse/3030-7227/images/ )

was a computer game, in this game you could choose between several characters, among these was jesus, was critical because it could be seen as representing the politicians in the White House as pig costume, plus the final boss was a transformer composed of body parts of several influential in the world represented people so diabolical as bill gates, bush, hillary clinton, hope you can remember this description haha, and sorry for the bad English

Hey guys, I've got a game that's been on my nostalgia radar for a good number of years. I only remember playing the demo and I believe it came out for the Macintosh in the mid to late 90s (possibly even early 2000's). The only things I remember about it are:

1. The main character is a man in a museum trying to get past the security system
2. The graphics are reasonably simplistic 3d (but still cool for the time period)
3. At some point you pick up a sword from one of the exhibits

Aside from that, I'm not much use, but I would surely appreciate some help in tracking this mystery down!
Thanks!

This sounds like Time Gate: Knight's Chase.

Ya!!!
That's the one I'm looking for!
Thanks Doomgriever!

Trying to remember an old game I used to play about 15 years ago. Involved toys (possibly gumbylike toys) and you would fire slingshots at the toys. The view was from behind the slingshot.
Fairly vague I know.
Thanks

No, that's not it. Looks pretty similar though from what I remember... Definitely the same sort of side-scroll shooter type of game. Thanks for the effort! :)

So basically to begin with,i guess its a shooter game on ps2 although i played the first mission only,i clearly remember the details
it had pretty decent graphics.The character gets up in a ship or some sort of base which was under attack and i would start moving forward and see that some ingame characters would run to a room and lock and some gets injured meanwhile i have to avoid the fire/burning stuff which is falling from the top and at the end i would come near a pile of fallen racks/broken building and that would be the end of the mission..please help me find this game!.The guilt is killing me because since i wouldn't pass the first mission itself i returned it.Now i need it again!
and oh its was maybe in 2000-2006 (not really sure about the dates)and i know its the army because all the ingame characters were wearing the uniform (not the full set only half the tshirt and pant!)

Paul Held:
Hey :)
I'm searching for a game. It was for windows 98 i think. The sense of the game was you have a spider or a grasshoper, i dont know anymore... And your enemie (played by the computer) has one too.
Then you have to jump. You can do a small jump or a big and when you jump anywhere all surronding enemies turn into yours. The game is over when there isnt any free place you can jump. The winner is who has the most grasshoppers in the end. And there many different levels.
Need Help pls

I know this game as Hexxagon. But without animals, just with stones.

One of the Harvest Moon games? ( http://www.giantbomb.com/harvest-moon/3025-301/ )

I don't thin Harvest Moon was ever released on PC. My game is from the same era as SimCity 2000

One of the King's Quest or Quest for Glory games? although they weren't isometric. Maybe an Ultima game?

Thank you for your kind suggestion. I just went through the Wikipedia list of adventure games for the period for the 100500 time, and found my game
Horde 1994
It has plenty of cows and an dorky looking guy with a sword. I remember the graphics to be much more aesthetic though. :)

Hey!

I'm searching for a JRPG released on PSX. I played it 15 years ago, so i just remember some of the details. I remember that the main character meets a girl with pink hair who doesn't speak the language of the other characters. At some point of the story she gets a translator. She comes from a world flying over the one where the game takes place.

A pretty unsual thing was the sidescrolling-but-turnbased combat. I always thought it was a Square-Enix title, but i couldn't find anything that sounded similar on wikipedia...

Frezzato:

This one is definitely Rocket Mania.
---
What you're describing sounds and looks very much like the game Flicky, except Flicky is dark blue. Also, he flies, so definitely not a penguin :)

Flicky is included on the disc Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection (PS3 and 360). Incidentally that collection is on disc only, there's no digital download of it, but I think you can find it by other means.
---
I'm sorry I can't help you with this one. You might want to start by Googling Marble Madness and work from there.
---
Thank you for the drawings, they were very helpful. I think one huge obstacle to new users getting help here is that they don't even bother to mention which platform they remembered playing on or what the game generally looked like, so your efforts paid off. As you can see your memory of both Rocket Mania and Flicky were pretty accurate!

I CAN'T EXPRESS HOW GRATEFUL I AM RIGHT NOW, ILU.

You are absolutely spot on on Flicky and Rocket Mania! ;w; I can't express just how enjoyable it is to be able to play them again, I managed to find them both being playable using the browser! Although it really goes to show just how young I was when I played those games. The images I drew show exactly how I remember them, and it sure was a pretty blurry memory now that I see how the games actually look, especially Rocket Mania *v* But they're surely the games I was looking for! Thank you ever so much ;w; You're awesome!

I'm so happy I decided to draw them! ;v; Yeah, I've been reading through the posts in this thread hoping that maybe even someone like me who didn't play hundreds of games out there would recognize something at all and would be able to help someone as well, but so many descriptions people write are just very vague and don't give a whole lot to distinguish one game from countless similar ones. I wanted to save the hassle for both myself and the readers of my post by giving as many details as I possibly could ;v; Thank you for thanking for it, and for the help quq

Frezzato:

Someone had suggested the game Rock and Roll to you earlier, but at the bottom of the Wikipedia page there was a reference to another game called Rollin, made by Ticsoft in 1995. Looking at footage on YouTube, the background of the game is black and red. Maybe this is your game?

I certainly don't remember playing a game like Rollin, but something tells me the game I drew might just not look how I remember it looked :'D Rollin looks like an absolutely marvelous game though, even if it's not spot on it surely is a nice find, so thank you for telling me of it! *,*

God hand maybe?

Well I looked at a list of all the N64 games and neither god hand or the game that I was looking for were on there so I'm guessing it was on a different console. The only other console that I had was an original xbox so maybe it's from the xbox?

Probably way off, but Final Fantasy: The Crystal Bearers? (Wii) ( http://www.giantbomb.com/images/1300-1227638 )

It sounds like dark cloud for the ps2. Great game wish I hadn't lost my copy while moving.

Razqual:
I'm trying to find out the name of this I saw played when i was around 10 or so. I think it was on NES but might have been Sega not sure. You play as a knight in armor and it was side scroll-er in the same way Metroid is. You collected spell weapons and armor to defeat bosses most of which I remember as being walls with faces or floors.

sorry to quote myself but this is still bugging me and i have a little more info. I know it is not super ghouls and ghost. but the knight was very similar.

That, my friend, sounds like Tales of Eternia. The Playstation 1 version was re-titled to Tales of Destiny 2.

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

Hi, I'm looking for an old game, it has plenty of minigames in it, it's for kids. One is a wordsearch with a cockroach watching you play. And if you try to click where you're not suppose to he'll say "Hey, you have to pick more letters first" There's also one called monster in the box (or something like that) where it's basically hangman, if you get it wrong too many times, the monster will break out of the box. Another game also guessing the movie/game or topic or something one of the answers is Sonic The Hedgehog. That's all I remember unfortunately.

Thanks.

There was a game that i played a lot. It was for PS2 i think. There was a boy who plays piano and he had a robot which he drives :) In the beginning of the game boy was fighting against some other robots and then he was going to a city. I remember a girl but she dies in the first chapter. The boy could earn money by playing piano. He was staying in an hotel and he could buy chloth or some food from the shops. I cant remember the rest of the game. If you know its name and say to me , i will be very happy.

Posting again because I'm desperate :l

I'd like to help, but that description doesn't give a lot to work with.

I mean, "creepy Myst-like adventure game with a circular room" could describe any of the Myst games, the later Zork games, 7th Guest, 11th Hour, the Dark Fall series, etc etc.

Have you got a theme? Do you remember anything about the story or setting? Do you remember any puzzles? Anything more could help narrow it down. :)

I appreciate the help, but that is literally all I can remember. However, the Myst Games you mentioned most closely resemble what I remember. The time period is off though, and the color scheme is a little too dull. The game I remember is much more cartoony.

Anyone? :l

Here's one that I forgot, then randomly played again, then forgot AGAIN. It was an arcade beat-em up that was actually pretty standard. Fantasy themed. The thing I remember most is that the final boss was a king, then he turned into a dragon, then he turned into a sun. Thanks guys

Could someone help me figure out a name for an old Sega Genesis game. It's been in my head for years and I just have not been able to find any information on this game whatsoever. Here's some things I remember about the game:

- It's a fighting game where the characters are all monsters
- I remember always picking a Naga(cobra head & tail with torso of man) character and he used his tail as a whip.
- I remember fighting in a ring or on some raised platform, I could be wrong.

That's about all I can remember about it. I've looked up the game primal fury cause it's a monster fighting game, but it had no snakes in there mostly dinosaurs and gorillas.

Primal Rage was my very first thought, and I was about to quote that but then I read that it wasn't that.... so then, I bring to the table Beast Wrestler

OMG, yes! That's what it is, thank you so much! Sorry for the completely late reply, been busy lately.

You sir, are an ABSOLUTE GENIUS! That is the game 100%. Thank you so much!

Sorry if this was already answered, but I need help finding a game I played as a kid. Most of this is what I remember, so I may not be right on everything I believe it was on a game boy, but i'm not sure. I believe there were five high school characters, but I only remember two. One wore all black, and had black hair with a white stripe. The other had orange hair and was wearing purple. I remember that either they were dead or they fought ghosts. I remember one level were you go into a school. I think the kid in black used shadows to fight. I remember also I think a dark level with fire? Anyways, thanks for the help, and it was probably a Japanese game, but I don't know.

EDIT: Also, If it helps, it is a two-dimensional, 3rd person game. Probably from 90s-early 2000's.

Hey I'm looking for a 90s game for preschoolers. It was a computer game and all I remember (I know not terribly helpful) was that you would pop bubbles with baby animals in them, and after making a cute little noise the would run off screen to the sound of super fake crunching grass. It moved pretty slowly since it's meant for really little kids. I know it's not much to go on, but it's been killing me trying to figure it out!

Hello I'm trying to remeber the name of an older game that i played in 98/99. It was 3.5 inch floppy disk with the cover being red and the guy on the cover was turning into an insect. I sure it was an rpg. But barely remeber much about it except the cover.

It is! Thanks mate!

Hey again, trying to get this one out my mind - anyone?

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!

That sounds a lot like Steambot Chronicles.

So i used to play a game on PC when i was 6 or 7 years old it was in 2004 or 2005. It is a game where u go on a quest or adventure(u were a boy or a girl) in a forest u had a backpack and u collected potions i think and i think there is a game associated with it or it is another game alone where i can only remember that i found hidden objects in a whale's mouth where i could remember his tongue and the objects u found were like a steering wheel for a ship like the pirates' ship and stuff like that.. sorry for the small amount of details i hope someone could help me PLEASE!!

OK - here's one I'm not sure ANYONE else will remember.

It was a mid to late 90s PC game. It was an RPG or Adventure title. I remember the graphics being very cartoony, but not quite anime. I do not believe it was a "major" title as far as selling a gazillion copies.

The game itself was "OK", but the real interesting thing about it was that there was a separate disk that adults could obtain from the company to unlock nudity and more adult language in the game.

Does anyone else remember this thing? Does anyone remember it's name?

cyronax:
I've got one more I can't recall. I haven't seen this thing since I was very young, but it was an arcade game. I want to say Sega, but don't quote me there. This was one of those big cabinets you climbed into to fly a space fighter through a series of worlds blasting other ships with lasers and homing missiles. I think it was called Space something, but I always loved the simulator nature of it. As you flew around, the whole cabinet would rotate and tilt to match your moves. Hopefully somebody can remind me of this one. It's been too long.

Sounds like one of the arcade versions Galaxy Force or Galaxy Force II:

http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/galaxyforce/galaxyforce.htm

Sorry it took me so long to check back again, but...

YOU ARE OFFICIALLY NOW MY HERO!!!! (bows down, repeats)

Galaxy Force 2! Thank you so much!!
