Hello fellow gamers.
I'm really cracking my head with the name of this game.. It's a game i've played in 2004-2008 years timeframe (not sure if that's right, but.. should be close). It was a game about some kind of hooligans/criminals/mobsters that were fighting other guys in the cities. not a colorful game, can remember it was always dark, view is from the top, it was single player pc game. It's defo not Mob Rule. And i don't remember building anything there. It was pure fighting stuff.. Sadly it's all i can remember.. ://
Can anyone remember something like that?

Hi guys I hope you can help me with this..

I remembered this game where you start of in space particularly its similar to the moon, btw this is a 1st person POV, and then there is this spaceships/hovercrafts lined in front and as far as I recall one of them has a white hawk/eagle head design on the whole front of the ship, the size of the ships also varies and I think the one with the hawk/eagle design is the largest one. About the gameplay, I remembered I am just going around that place using one of the ships and also it doesn't really fly into space.

I really don't remember if its in pc or ps1 but I played it using our old pc through a CD with ps1 games like tome raider, g-police, quake 2, etc.

Hope someone here can help me. Thanks in advance :)

Maybe "Battlezone"? I remember that there were ships painted with shark faces or something like that, not sure about the eagle/hawk. You started on the moon to. Only thing is it had 1st person as well as bird view and it also allowed you to collect ressources/build a base.

Hi, I wonder if you could help me. I'm looking for an old game that I can't find online ANYWHERE.

This has been bugging me for literally years and recently i have been investing more and more time to try and find it.

I have recently downloaded some of my favourite old games from the 90's: commander keen 2, star wars dark forces, red alert 1, full thorttle etc.

The game I'm looking for is a STRATEGY game, no newer than 1997 (probably older, between 90-97).

From memory its VERY similar to Total Annihilation & Command & Conquer.

The level I can remember is: Starting off in a sort of castle/stronghold/base with water around it and a bridge heading off to the north (possibly other directions as well). Your team was red and the enemy was blue (i think). I believe you could build turrets onto the existing stronghold structure and also produce troops from it. The troops were similar to Space Marines ie. rockets and machine guns. You could also produce vehicles, tanks and maybe buggies? You had to uncover the map and find enemy bases and destroy them whilst defending your own.

I have a feeling it had a 'tower defence esk' feel to it mixed with command and conquer.

From this description I know it could be anything but if you could suggest any similar games to this from around that time then that would be much appreciated!!

thanks

Wow, this is it. Maybe I switched the shark face to hawk.. haha.. well it has been 10 years since I last played it so I'm really not sure too about that. Well anyway, Thank you raeior :)

Hey guys!
I hope someone here can help me out.
I only played this game as a Demo (I think it was a demo CD from a magazin).

The game(demo):
- Real time strategy
- 1 Alien-class and 1 Robot (Human class). You could play both classes.
- overview view like in Warcraft3 and starcraft
- You where playing on a different planet, almost like the moon.
- I think you got resources by command a unit to stand over a little yellow hole in the ground.
- The alien 'tank-unit' looks like a snail or a disformed penis that shoots testicles. At least thats how I remeber it (played it as a kid).
- I think i played it in 2000-2005 (it could be older). Played it in windows 98
- I think the graphics was like diablo 2 (kinda).

Thanks!

Awesome thread!!! I have one that's been bugging me for years! It was a first person shooter if I recall correctly, I remember the enemies, some of them were smileys with guns, others were purple fluffy monsters. The setting seemed to me like a school, it had lockers on the walls, and such. It was a casual game, seemed pretty underground to me. I remember the time in which I played it, was the same as when I played Doom II, say maybe.. 1998. It reminds me a lot of the Windows 3D maze screensaver. Hope you 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 have been trying to remember this game for ever, can anyone help me?

-It was a PlayStation 2 game if I recall correctly.

-It was a pretty linear adventure game from what I remember (level to level).

-The story involved a large bird like creature.

-Can't remember the playable character, not sure if it was a human, animal or made up species.

-I also remember having to destroy these large grey eggs (that look a lot like regular seagull eggs in this day and age just bigger). I'm guessing these were lay'd by that giant bird we are pursuing.

-Sadly I can't remember what the purpose for the giant eggs were although I remember them bouncing as if they had a live creature trying to push itself out from inside the egg.

-Final boss battle is the fight with this giant bird like creature I think.

My doubts: For some reason I can't confirm for sure if the eggs were collected or destroyed but I'm 80% sure it was destroyed.

Thanks for any help :)

Dark Colony is a PC real time strategy game. Has nothing in common with what I described unfortunately. Thanks for trying though :)

We had this game on the library computer in my primary school (England), it definitely ran on either Windows 95 or 98.
A key thing I remember was that it had a bunch of 'feelies' with it, including 'suspect' cards and some kind of underground tube map.
As you navigated the game, the screen would show an low resolution image (photo) of a view of a road, or building, usually with a road sign in. I can't remember if the place names were real ones or not, but the photographs definitely were.
You would use the maps included to track down the people you had on your cards to ask them questions which i think might have mentioned characteristics which would eliminate other character on the suspect cards.
I believe part of the point of the game was to teach you how to use maps. Unfortunately I can't remember the story line, why I was tracking down these people, or anything about the title of the game!
Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks!

Hi all,
I'm trying to find a game I played on my nanna's computer when I was a kid. I don't really know much about it but I know this: It was a point and click (I think) and you had to solve puzzles like finding the key to unlock the door and stuff like that, much like a lot of the 'Escape' games (although it could have been very different. I just remember looking for a key or another way to get through the door). I don't know when I played it but I remember some other games I played on her computer around the same time. They were 'SkiFree' and 'Jazz Jackrabbit 2' (although that one might have been later). Also, for some reason I think of 'Paul's House' or 'Pete's House' or something like that whenever I think of it (possibly the title or maybe some important piece of in-game info?) Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

Alright this one's been bugging me for like a year now, so glad I found this thread. PC game from the 2003-2005 timeframe if I remember correctly. It was a fairly generic sci-fi shooter, but you could get in tons of different vehicles. I distinctly remember they had dropships, jets, APCs, all sorts of stuff. In multiplayer you were able to seamlessly transition from ground up into space and have some type of space dogfighting. I stuck an APC inside of a dropship, flew it up into orbit, got into the back of the dropship, manned the APC, and ejected and rode it all the way back down to the ground. It was amazing and I would love to screw around in that game again, if only I could remember the damned name. I don't think it was very popular even at the time, fairly low-budget and super buggy. But still fun as hell.

Havn't really played it so could be way off but Battlefield 2142? ( http://www.giantbomb.com/battlefield-2142/3030-17828/images/ )

Nope! Thanks for giving it a shot, though.

I think the game you're looking for is Breed it has all the features you mentioned

I hope you can help me with this one
It was a PC game
Dated early 2000's
There was a 3rd person view
You play as a car that can transform (I definitely can remember a big wheels mode and a flying helicopter-dropship-something)
I can remember that you had to jump into portals in order to move to the next level
Also after beating the last level of the game you could chose a rocket weapon that you can control in flight and it allows you to control enemy units if you hit them with this rocket

I wonder if anyone knows what on earth I am talking about.....
I'm trying to remember a game that would have been played on a desktop PC in the 90's.

I don't remember there being much to it other than it being based around a dolphin like animal. I think a lot of the time you were just watching scenery like a pond or something and there were day and night phases to it. There were other animals that you'd spot as well, I think they were fantasy type creatures, atmospheric sounds etc.....
Gosh that's a bit thin but hope someone has a clue what I'm talking about! It is driving me mad not remembering the name of it.

Pleassseeee help, I played a PC games in the late 90s and I was based on a cruise ship where u could go round all the kitchens and decks and rooms and up on the top, it was a platform game so lots of jumping was involved! I'm pretty sure although not certain that the character was a cartoon mouse ... Please help I've posted before and no one replied :-(

Bit late, and this is unlikely but I didn't want to not say it! Could possibly be 'Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo' on Amiga or Commodore 64? :)

Genifurr Ryann:
...

The first one was a PC game. I played all of these games in the late 90's so I don't recall when they might have been released. This game was actually a Dorling Kindersley education game but I don't know which one it is. I remember playing a bunch of mini games where you would learn about lots of different things about animals and places. It's sad that I can see these images in my head but I can't seem to describe them.

Maybe 'The Way Things Work'? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVN-2UTf7vo

Hello :D I remember asking of a PC game here some time ago and I have no idea if I ever thanked any of you properly for helping me. In case I didn't...well obviously thanks a lot for finding my game.

Now once again I can't find a thing I used to play as a kid. I think it was around 2005? In any case after 2000.

It was a PC game that was both multiplayer and single player. The characters you played with were wolves (or hounds or whatever) and you had to kill some creatures -as far as I can remember- before dawn.

The gameplay was 2D and the screen was basically split into 2 areas, upper one being pretty small and that's also where the creatures came from. And you could see the moon hanging over there. The lower one occupied most of the screen and was underground. That's where you basically jumped, killed stuff etc.

I'm not sure but the game could've included chapters??

And yet another game i really miss ..
it's an aracade game , and the genre is vertically shot'em up, with the hero i remember is a female ninja riding plane (somewhat) and her ultimate is releasing a pink flower all around her, and another hero i remember is a monk who riding a white eagle (if i'm not mistaken) with releasing burst of mantra as his ultimate, and the last hero i remember is a guy riding red vehicle with releasing card as a top power gun and releasing a large card bomb as his ultimate ... if anybody know the title, i'll be so thankfull :D

I used to watch my cousin play this game on the ps2. It was a third person game where you where a guy on what i remember as a huge boat in the ocean you had to fight against alien/zombie type monsters. i also remember at one point you had to walk through some sort of glass under water tunnel, and there was these face hugger type aliens from 'aliens' and they shot something at your face or something i cant remember xD

Woah you're right, that's it! Thanks!

I'm trying to remember the name of a game I played back in the 90s but I don't remember an awful lot about it, I remember it be a collection of games one being a donut matching game and another being you played as a man in a haunted house and there was a pumpkin outside the house you needed to find a key to get in the house. Please help me find this game it's being driving me mad for years.

Hey guys, getting desperate, please help:

I remember playing this game for the PC as a kid (mid 90's, maybe?) - it was a demo so I only had access to one level, but it was a 3D game where you flew a kind of a ship, had to search for survivors and rescue them (by "teleporting" them into your ship and subsequently out of the ship into some other facility) while defending the survivors and yourself from giant insects (ants (?), wasps) and arachnids (spiders, scorpions). I think you could shoot them with...umm...lasers? The level was like a small planet, ergo, I think there were no physical limits, rather, you would just fly around the said planet in a relatively short time.

I might be mistaken about some of the above, in which case I'm sorry - I was but a kid, it was a long time ago and I didn't get the chance to play the game nearly as much as I would have liked to.

Appreciate the help :)

The horror house game was called hugos house of horrors it was a text based game

Hi guys I was wondering if you could help me remember that name of a game that has been driving me CRAZY. I normally would just say Oh well to something this trivial, but the fact is the memory of this game is now vital to the approach in our game design. But I remember so little.

All I remember about this game is that it had something to do with a war between two factions, I can't remember if they were apes, pigs, or something, but what i do remember is that the plot was hilarious as it was basically a series of rip offs of famous movies. The only scene I vaguely recall was a parody of the carbonite han solo scene in star wars from one of the characters/factions. Any ideas?

Hi im looking for a space shooter, its like G-Darius and r-type Combined and have a octopus boss on stage 7 or 8.

Okay, so there was this game I downloaded years ago onto my Nintendo Wii. It was a sidescroller game where you play as someone who's sort of like megaman. Co-Op was also available. Anyways, in the beginning, you choose your weapon type (like a green gun, blue gun, and a regular bullet type blast) and you can upgrade or swap guns later on in the game. This was like a side scroller and had a couple of bosses.

possibly Hogs of War?

Nope. But thx for trying. Now that I've had some time to think about it the vague cutscene I recall was a deliberate rip off story of Halo and somehow transitioned to Star Wars where one of the characters was being taken away in carbonite or something.

Hi, there is an old game that I really wanted to re-play but I can't remember the name, I couldn't finish it last time.

-PC games, adventure/puzzle, third person camera view, cartoon graphic.
-I played it around year 2000-2002, but the game could be older.

I only remember that you played as a male character, travel town to town, killing monsters and do some puzzle quests in town and also outside of town. I remember one of your gadget is a timer bomb that you can use unlimitedly, the bomb will help you blow off some walls in the cave when you travel between towns. Every towns got a few puzzle quests that you need to solve - I remember that in one of the town you need to rescue a cat that stuck on a high place, and you need to put certain liquid into soup pot and take it to a guard to put him asleep. Every quest related things will have a sparkling light on it to hint you.

If anyone know this game name I would really appreciate it.

Hi guys!

I'm searching for an old point and click adventure game that I played on my mom's old laptop (somewhere between 95-99). I only remember parts of it, but i hope some of you have played with it :)

- The game takes place in a futuristic world, and it's in a cartoonish stlye, like the scummvm games
- You play with a guy who wears glasses and i think wears a white suit (not sure)
- You start in a place that looks like a construction site, and from there you can go to a subway station (in the toilet you got beaten up by some big guys, the train can run over you)
- There is an old house after that, where you get into an old apartment, where you can gather some stuff. I think there was an old lady you could talk to.
- The only "cinematic" i remember: You get into a flying car with a busty girl (she drives) and a big white dog. She brings you to an entrance of a futuristic mall (or some building). The entrance got a security robot-eye, that you can disable some way, but i think i only did it once :D
- In the mall (or some building) there are bunch of people moving, and i think that's where i got stuck.

Any help would be great :)

Sorry to quote it again, but it's bugging me too much :) It was not a big classic game for sure, i checked a lot of abandonware sites (at least 10), but no luck. Beneath a Steel Sky and Space Quest are not this game, but this one is like the hybrid of these two. Maybe a hint: it was preinstalled on a german notebook that my mom bought (used) in Germany.
