Beneath a steel sky? Unfortunately I havent played much beyond a few minutes. So my guess is based on the first line.

Thanks for the reply, but it's not that one. I have played Beneath a steel sky, but it's not this one :(

Just throwing names out there, after googling a bit. Space quest? What sort of interface was it? Also, here's a suggestion. Look for lists of pc point and clicks online. Around mid-90s. And narrow it down to a few. Pick one. Look up the game's walkthrough. And search for the keywords.

That's the problem, i don't remember the whole interface. I only remember that there was an overburden meter: if you got too much stuff picked up, the meter went down. It was point and click style, but i don't recall the usual buttons (move/pick up/talk to/etc).
I already checked a tons of lists you suggested (and doing so every time i can), and it hasn't been found yet. Maybe it was only a demo, or an Europe-only release. I was only 10 years old when i played it, and it was preinstalled on my mom's laptop (bought from Germany). In that case, it could be a german game :) I was only clicking everywhere to advance through the levels, and don't remember the language.

Hey everyone! I've been racking my brain trying to remember the name of a game I used to play with my brother on ps1. It would of been either late 90's or early 00's.
The only thing I can remember is the character I used to play was a girl in a school uniform type outfit, she had some sort of fairy/guardian angel type deal and one of her moves was where she would say something along lines of "no I can't" then look away from her opponent and the fairies/guardian would attack for her. She also had daggers/knives where she would send them forward into and through the opponent.

I also remember another one of the characters a male for some reason is reminding me of tuxedo mask?? I could be completely off with that one haha.

Please help! I am literally going crazy! xx

another game ive lost the name for but again heres what i remember, its a real time strategy game that set in a fantasy plane allowing you to play as undead, elves(i think if not its somekind of nature force), humans and one other which im lost on if there is a fourth. thats all i can remember.

EDIT i just remembered this not sure if it will help.
the ground where you built as the undead or nature force(elf w/e) would change to dead grass(black grass i think) or lighter grass like the zerg from starcraft universe.

sounds like a warcraft game, though there are others which names escape me. what was it for? Pc, console, handheld?

it was for PC

OH MYGOD I AM DEAD PLEASE HELP
Okay, I remember there was an orange robot that helped you choose out a room, and the room could have any theme, like medieval or natural. Afterwards, you picked out furniture to decorate it, ad I remember there was more to it, but I don't remember what the extra stuff was. I think the game had 3D graphics, and its not Microsoft BOB. If anyone can help, thanks so much! This was PC game, if that helps.

i think your game would be westward

I was hoping someone could help me out....I have been racking my brain to remember the name of a video game (don't remember the game system either) where the character you played with was a white stick figure. You traveled through a maze (labyrinth) where you had to fight snakes (one of them was an ASP), mummies and there was a priest that chased you all over the screen. If you found the right magic or tools, you could freeze all the enemies in the screen and then kill them with different types of swords (I believe). For the age of the game, the graphic acceleration was pretty good. If any of the enemies touched you it would sound like you would be electrified. If you were killed, your character would flash......this is driving me nuts because I just downloaded some classic ROMs from older game systems and can't figure it out!!!! Please HELP!!!!!!

Hello all
I hope someone can shed some light on this old forgotten game. It's been so long and I cannot find anything online. It was an old PC game - maybe early -mid 90s. Top perspective. You would look at this environment/image from above t where a couple of monsters would move around. You would be able to move only around the edges/frame of this scene. The purpose of the game was to cut out of this image - to either catch a monster in the small space that is being remove. The other option was to cut out so much that a small enough space would end the level. The movement of the monsters would speed up with each level. I think there was something like a dragon at one point towards the end. I know the description is quite sketchy but if anyone out there played it it would be amazing if you can remember the name. I have a vague idea that the name might start with a V or W but I'm not really sure.
Thanks

Okay guys, bear with me here. This was a game I played a long time ago (I'm 20 years old now, I think I was between 6-8 at the time, but I'm not sure). The game was for Playstation 1 I think. I'm not sure if it was a 2D or 3D game, but I think throughout the story you played with a few different characters. What I remember from the game are a few flashbacks from a few parts of the game. I remember the game having a puzzle that to solve it you had to go outside and look at some Japanese symbols and go inside and put them the exact same way. I remember there was a scene where you were face to face with a villain and she shows you one of your friends (He was fat I think) and he was dead (I think he had his guts out or just a bloody belly..) I also remember, that in the final level of the game, you were playing as a girl, and you had to choose between a guy and a girl. I think they were pointing the gun at each other, and you had to choose who would die. I also know, that there were 2 bosses, depending on the choice, and 1 of the bosses was a huge monster. I also think there was a level in the woods, but that's not much.. The game overall had a dark environment.

Please help me here guys. I've been searching for so many games and found them all, but throughout the years the only game I haven't found was this. I found everything from Parasite Eve to Gunstar Heroes, but this game has been stuck in my head for years and I can't find it. I would be so grateful if someone could find out this game for me.

OMG I FOUND IT!!! I ASKED MY BROTHER AND HE FOUND IT!! IT'S CALLED "FEAR EFFECT"!!

Thank you for everyone that tried looking for the game, the explanation was small I didn't remember much!! Have a nice day, I hope you all find the games you're looking for !!

That's a Qix clone (there are a lot of them!) Such as Volfied ( http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v12/Tidegear/for_retro_thing/volfied_in-game.png )

Can anyone help me find an old rts game for pc. I remember playing it in like 2002 so it must have been released earlier than that. I remember that there were different races. I dont remember much but I remember there being a race with vampires. Another race that built totems and had vampires. There was also another race which had something like frankenstein. That all I can remember now, thanks for helping. I think I found someone else describe the same game but with no answer. Here is what they had to say about the game "4 teams/campaigns.
red was of vampires with dracula and different vampires(units that can turn into bats)

blue was of mechanical bipedal robots (dont remember much of this team)

purple was of some circus creatures(joker pumpkin head)

gray was of knights(on unit named errant or something)"

Any One Help ^^

Hi everyone! I am looking for an old adventure game but I have forgotten the name. I really want to find it so I really need some help, thanks!
What I remember is that the game is played around 2000. It is a first person game only with a hand shown to find tools/solving problems to move on. Here are some parts that I remembered:

Game starts with a short introduction with a boy on a bus and he got a magic book. And then he arrived at a castle.

1. One part of the game is that you are stuck in a room chasing by a monster outside the room. You opened a window in the room to let some bees in to bite the monster.
2. One part of the game is that you are sinking in a pool of soil and you have to pull a mouse's tail to get out. Then you follow the rat inside a water pipe to move on.
3. One part of the game is you met a bad woman with ice ability so she sent you to a ice world.

That's all I remembered.. I really hope that someone would know the game T.T Thanks!

I remember playing a game when I was a kid that I'd love to find again.
It was a 3rd person space strategy game. It had different sizes and styles of ships, all the way up to a really big circle-looking thing that was a big base defense station. While empire building was done turn-based, Battles were fought in a different screen that was real-time, or turn-based real time. I seem to recall that the dominant weapon was lasers, and it showed the line of the laser as it fired from one ship to another. I seem to remember the dominant color of the battles being pinkish, or fuchsia, although I'm pretty sure it was post-CGA graphics era.
It seems like different planets had different atmosphere types and you had to build a colony ship that matched that planet type.
I also remember that you could set time to pass, and as it did, the game played arpeggio-like music as time passed. (But this little detail might have been a different game, lol).

Any ideas? It seems like it was around 94-98?
I looked at the Space Empires series, but I don't think it was any of those.

My brother thinks it may have had a variation of "colonization" in the title.

After some diligence.....I found the game - Gateway to Apshai for the ColecoVision game system.

I'm having trouble trying to remember this one game I played on my PS2 in the early 2000's. I only remember bits and pieces like: when you passed a checkpoint there were red or white smoke flares on either side of the road, you could free roam certain areas, there were train tracks in the rural area and it pushed you along or stalled your car, stalling your car meant you could move because it was "repairing itself", if you crashed hard enough your wheels would break off and you would stall, there was this giant water fall that you could drive off of and you could change the weather settings to have the waterfall and connecting river frozen, AI controlled vehicles would drive along the road and you could crash into them and form a massive pile-up. I was 4-5 when I played this game and subsequently lost it. My sister and I want to find this game and buy it to enjoy a nostalgic moment. Please help :)

That's probably one of the Clonk games (might be 4 or Clonk Planet). There are even more recent versions (Clonk Rage) and an open-source version in development (OpenClonk).

It's been a long time since I've played it so I'm not sure if it exactly matches your description, but it sounds like it could be Smuggler's Run.

Most likely Total Annihilation Kingdoms.

In the 1990s I remember playing a fantasy PC game which had dragon in the title. It was a quiz game which took you to different locations on a board and you had to answer multiple choice questions to pass through. In the end you had to beat the dragon in a game of wits. I used to play it 2 player with my sister and you could be various fantasy characters like the dwarf, warrior, amazon or prophetess. I wanted to see if I could find an old copy as a joke for my sister's birthday but I can't remember the name!

There's a game I used to play somewhere in the late 90's/early 2000.
It was a single player, 2D platform game for PC. The main character was a cat. I don't know if this was for a single level or not, but it had a space theme to it, and it was kind of purple.
I know it's vague but it's all I can remember.

Hello, I think in here I would have a higher chances of finding the game I want, anyways here's what I remember,
The graphics were good and I think its either sega/ps 1game (as far as I recall the graphics were nice so I highly think its ps1 game, but there's a chance with sega, anyways you start in a castle and when you start the game inside the castle a purple ghost appears and talks to you then he laughs and disappear, and I think he's the first boss, and the game play looks like rpg style...but iam not sure of it, but its like you have to walk in the map and fight couple of characters before you get to the purple ghost, and I remember there was some luck factor in rolling dice or something, anyways the ghost looks like the purple ghost in pokemon named (gengara), thanks <3

No it wasn't any form of FF.

Sounds kind of like a Star Control game. I only ever played 3, but that had the different atmospheres, real time battles and total laser domination.

I was hoping to have a nostalgia while playing this game. I used to play it with my dad it was amazing I loved it. I hope you guys can help me, good luck :)!

Dunno if anyone replied
Long shot but is it fear effect ?

Hello everyone! I've been trying to remember a game I used to play, let me try to explain the mechanics.

- It was a game where you would choose something like a tank and fight against other tanks in this map that looked like a dome.
- The objective was to destroy the enemies by throwing missiles at them by setting the angle, elevation and such.
- You could have different missile types, like cluster bombs and nukes
- When you fired or killed an enemy, they'd say quotes before being hit (I remember two: "Remember the alamo!" and "All your base are belong to us")
- The dome was three dimensional, you could rotate the camera, and every missile you fired could alter the terrain

That's all I remember, I hope anyone can help me :)

I posted on this site trice but no one found out the game name for me, So I am hoping new faces have come who have seen this game before, So here is goes:

The game is old 95' or 98 could be older, It was part of a Demo disc I remembered as I only had a few levels, Maybe Magic the card game was on it I think!

So the AI and yourself are Aliens, no humans. THe resource type is like in a pond and flower type thing grows.

One the aliens I recall are like a squarish thing with a saw blade on it's head.

Anyone?

i need help :'(

Hi guys hopefully someone can help me with this.

Years ago I must have been about 11-13 i remember playing a demo of a game which involved researching and building a big robot along with an army and fighting against the computer teams.
The robots of the opposition would sometimes drop an arm or something which could be collected and replace one of your robots arms.

I think the game logo was a bit like an "A" shape, all metal coloured and potentially a crack through it but that's all I can remember.

Can anyone help me out!

Thanks
