Hi guys!

This game is from the 90's. It came in one of those older large cardboard boxes. It's a 2D game from an Isometric view, where you control a small group of soldiers.

The main character is a redhead woman in army gear. I can't recall what the objective of the game is, but you proceed mission by mission killing AI in a sandy environment.

All help is much appreciated!!

Hello everyone this one has been bothering me lately there's this old aerial combat game I use to play where I am able to change different ships by landing on air strips. I was also able to fight against gaint blimps as boss battles and I remember one of the levels had me fight a gaint purple blimp that ate other blimps. I also remeber many of the airplanes were like ww1 ww2 esp style. I also assume it was on the ps2 and original Xbox. Hope this helps.

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!!!

Bad Toys 3D ?

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 :)

Alright i got a tough one here I can picture it in my head but cant think of the name.
Its an old 90's game on an old macintosh II or at least i played it on one of them.
Your a guy that does puzzles, level by level it gets harder.
You can push blocks (if i remember right), and you move square by square. (only used arrow keys for this game)
Your objective is to get a certain colored key to get out of a certain colored Door (there can be multiple colors for one level).
There's mostly grey but your colored and certain things are like Keys, Triangles that move around and try to get you, lava, iced floor that you slide across.
It looked like one of the games that might have came with the comp, i know it wasnt an installed game that was cd based thats for sure. 8 bit graphics maybe less since it was on a macintosh II.

Been bugging me for a few days and i don't wanna let it go cause that's just me hah. If anyone knows that'd ease my mind. Thanks

ah sorry also should have asked if you knew when it came out or around what year you remember playing? trying to narrow down the list :).

ive only played the demo but i think i played it around 2003 i think
EDIT also i do remember you could get hero units that could buy equipment from shops around the map but it wasnt a warcraft game i know that

That sounds a lot like Rising Kingdoms or Heroes of Annihilated Empires, which are both RTS's in Warcraft style. Rising Kingdoms' "undead" faction are called Shades, though you only play as them indirectly as i recall.

thank you it was Heroes of Annihilated Empires

I have two games that have both been driving me crazy. They're both for the PC and were likely released in the 90s.

The first game was a sort of 'realistic' safari game where you'd start in a large house with a museum on the top level. Downstairs you had to find keys and you'd find one by becoming a fly and getting a 'fly view' of the room as it buzzed around. To get to the safari bit you had to leave the house and go to a zebra patterned jeep that would exit through a gate into the africa bit where the animals were. All of it was in first person. The museum bit upstairs had a lot of skeletons of animals fenced off with red rope.

The second game was some kind of educational game set in a spooky castle. It would cover different subjects like english where you had to go across stepping stones that were set in a lake of green acid/goo to reach the other side. The maths subject involved a giant spider web and a spider that tried to get you. The science was like all zoomed out and you were on a magic broomstick, opening chests and things. Art was like, set in a forest and you had to put down stamps/stickers of stuff. I swear to god the name of the main character was like goopy or gloopy and he was a purple/pink dinosaur or something of that sort.

Any help would be appreciated :)

I'm looking for a game, late 90's to early 2000's I'd say.

Played it on a PC.

I only have vague memories and flashes of this one. It was sort of an adventure/sci-fi game. It was a 3rd person game.

One thing I can remember was that you could wield pretty cool weapons, such as a big wooden bat-like pole (maybe it was a sledge), and the strongest memory I have was that there was an event where you would fight a bear near a waterfall (although I could be mistaken about the waterfall but there was a lot of nature around).

But I can also remember guns, such as laser guns. This was such a long time ago and i was probably around 10 back then. Feelin' pretty nostalgic right now, used to play it at my friend's house, thought it was a cool game for its time back then.

Please help with this one!

HeartlessandSoulless:
Hey guys, nice to meet you all.
I had only a demo of this game, so I may not be very precise here.
- This game was a real-time strategy one, sci-fi themed (like Starcraft);
- Your units were (by default) colored blue;
- Your enemies' units were colored green;
- Neutral resources/units (using the word "resources" because one of the demo's maps, one in the snow, had this huge generator) were colored white;
- I can remember 2 maps, one in the snow, other in the desert;
- You had one-time "special" attacks, like an air strike, amongst other things;
* It was a PC game (probably an exclusive).

Thanks in advance, for your help!

Bumping it again. Can anyone remember that one?

Hey guys. I have 3 for you. The first was when I was really young. Maybe mid to late 90's? I remember you had to pick a character and they were set in a circle. I believe all of them were on mounts. One of the characters was named Chaos and one of them was sitting on a white tiger.
The second and third I had together. Probably early 00's. They were like Diablo kind of. One I think took place in Vietnam,the other was darker, with skeletons and crows. I know it's very vague, but I remember having a lot of fun playing them, and would like your help. Thanks!

Alright,i've been looking for this game for a few years now.
I've played it on a friend's pc back in 2005-2006(the game looked better than half life 1 but way worse than half life 2,so it probably was released during 2000-2004).
-it was an fps
-i don't remember much about the main character,except that he's a guy,but i believe that the antagonist was female and she was called "Asakura" or something ending in -akura
-You could drive vehicles such as tanks and cars
-The grass is toxic and if you get near it you get damaged
-In one of the missions,the daughter(i think) of your leader got kidnapped and you had to save her
-I'm not so sure about this,but the only boss fight that i remember is you vs a scientist who goes invisible.

I'm not even sure if this game is real anymore,i've been searching for it for far too long

emgamer:
Okay so I used to play this one pc game when I was a kid, it was probably made in the early/late 90's.
So I remember it was sort of a 2D cartoony game, the main character is a white rabbit type animal, and I remember he had like a weird sounding voice and I don't think he was speaking English, but i'm not sure, it might have just sounded weird. And I remember that the main goal of the game had something to do with like finding pieces to build a rocket. And you had to go to different rooms in this house and find different objects. I think in one scene you find a pair of socks in a treasure chest, and in one scene you go into the basement or something. And whenever you went through a door or stairs to go to a different scene, I remember your curser turned into like a pair of shoes and you would hear footsteps.
Does anyone know what this game was called?
I will literally pay you $30 if you find this for me, no joke. I am going crazy trying to find the name of this game.

I just realized the main character sort of looked like Max from Max and Ruby.

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?

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.

Any other ideas?

Anyone remember this PS1 game where you build a lego-like army and fight against other lego-like armies? I remember 2 blocks horizontally meant buiding a soldier, and then 4 blocks meant a tank, and maybe 2 blocks vertically meant a gun.

Hello everyone! sorry for my bad English
When i was a kid (early or mid 90s) i played a coin up "side scrolling beat em up" with fantasy astosphere only white weapon, blades etc.
Maybe at one of the last stage of the game, i remember very well a very long staircase made by yellow brick, the scene colors and illumination were bright, and the back wall had windows that showed the outside mountains and valleys below.
There were mimic chests, and green, yellow, blu, violet? jumping blob's with bright color, at the end of each levels, was shown a map, on the right there was a beach and maybe a ship moored.

I think there were a few characters to choose from, one of these was an archer, maybe a woman?
skinny and with a beautiful armor, maybe her hair was long and white

Maybe is "kinight of the round" or "The King of Dragons"? i don't know i can't remember, i'm sure it was a Japanese game.

I tried a lot to find info, but i can't find the title of this coin up, perhaps even went out on snes.

The memory haunts me for years...
I hope someone can help me thanks

Maybe State of War? I played it too a long time ago :)

Hi, i've been searching a game for a very long time now, it looks exactly like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fTn-mPQVv0 (Land of Dreams) So its an old japanese RPG back from 2004 or even earlier. The gameplay features big summonable monsters (not sure) with side viewed combat (not like in "Land of Dreams" where you can only see the enemies)
About the plot.. well the strange thing its very similar to "Land of Dreams" the protagonists name is Robert too, and the starting island is quite similar too, but here, the northern part of the village is a different castle, robert is a prince and his brother (Falcon) is pretty evil (He wants to rule the kingdom) after the town part we have to in the mountains to fight harpies (early lvling etc) after the mountaint part we are in a swampy territory full of slimes (yeah, you can see monsters hanging around they are not just randomly attacking you like in Pokemon) where robert finds a cave with an ancient time machine but a crystal is needed to make it work, Robert finds it, his evil brother shows up, fight scene, and robert accidentally set back (or forward, i dont know) in time. He wake up in a fairy/elf girls treehouse then the next scene is where the girls grandpa (old dude in brown robe) wants to test him or something, he needs to follow the old dude in the forest but he is disappeared and i couldnt find him. This is where i deleted the game..

And the most interesting part: I dont know wheter i just DREAMED this game, or i really played it, it was so real i dont know for sure. I thougth its an alternate plot in "Land of Drams" but no, i opened it up with RPG maker but i didnt found any sprites similar to what i remembered.. strange..

(ps.: pls if you find out something let me know by sending me an e-mail: alexaegis@gmail.com, its very important for me, thank you.)

Hi, I have read alot of the pages above to see if someone else played the same game but I couldnt find anything close to my description anyway.

Well the game Im after the name of came out in the late eighties or before 1992. I plyed it in the arcade on a machine but it may have come out on other platforms.

The game starts out with you as a skinny human shaped robot .The game is played by walking the character along an jumping obstacles or shooting things. As you walk you collect tokens that are 'N's or 'M's .Each time you collect a token a marker is moved along the bottom enabling you to buy something. If you save up the tokens you get to buy better things. you can buy bigger jump, better armour, better guns and other stuff. There are eight levels that each have a big boss at the end. At the end of the eighth lboss you have to fight all eight bosses in a row. I remember everything about the game except the name, no one has ever been able to tell me and i havent even met another person that has even played it.

Cheers and thanks from Stephen Kawasaki

A game I played on pc at least 7 years ago.

It's a 3rd person fighting game based around ancient asia (not sure if japan or china), there are multiple melee weapons to choose from, sword, spear, club, sheathed sword, big sword idk. There are 4 crystals lying around the map which you can grab, they change the appearance of your weapon. You start the game off at some big-ass gate and the first enemy is a big bearded muslim-looking dude with a curved sword. The opening movie of the game is someone chasing some dude through the rooftops and sht. I remember the first area being desert/mountain type. The 2nd being dark, temple-ish looking with 3 guys wielding spears.

Oh, the game's logo I believe was a butterfly.

Any help will be appreciated.

Akmorai:
Hey guys, I hope you can finally release me from my pain.

I am looking for an old PC adventure-type/point and click game. I have no idea what it was about and only played a small part of it since it had pretty difficult puzzles I couldn't solve as a kid. All I remember is a section in which you play as a male character, alone, and are exploring some kind of ancient ruins, I dont think there were any people to interact with, it was overgrown and basically just stone, it might have been in the sky too, not sure anymore though. You had to unlock a stone door at some point by ( this might be completely made up by my memory) swapping around stone plates or something.

I played it in the late 90's together with Kings Quest 6 so the release dates can't be too far apart.

Bump.

This is bugging me since years.

Sidescrolling platformer. Played it on the PC (Windows 98) like 10 years ago (although it might have been an emulator, dunno). You're a tall green (?) bald alien (?) with long ears in silver (or red? or something? colors) suit. You run, you have momentum, like in the first stage there's a ramp and you can only get below it by running towards it and squating before it (by holding down) (second picture). When you bump into a wall you moan a bit. There's falling damage. When you die you explode into bits, and your bits float towards the last checkpoint and you reassemble.
Late there's a falling level, you're falling and you have to dodge shit, and I think after you land all the shit falls down after you, so you dodge again.
Late level, platforms fading and reappearing, they have a stupid sound while doing this. You're proceeding upwards I think. There's a bridge made out of these platforms and they disappear after each other, so you have to plan your run (third picture).
If you inserted an audio CD into the disc drive it played that music while you played.

Hi all,

This is a game which I used to play in 2001. You can play single player or two player. The players were two little creepy creatures with a hunchback. In the first level they need to eliminate the cats and dogs by hitting the tile they(cats) are on from below by jumping (Like Mario collect coins and lives) and kicking them when they are turned upside down. As the levels go they travel more in to the earth and there are more creatures like spiders and skeleton dinosaurs. Please let me know if you know this game. Thanks

Hey guys!

I have a question about a game I used to play as well.

I think it was... 1997-something. It could be released earlier tho.
You are an... I think it was yellow thief, and I believe you had to steal jewels from a level, could've been coins too, and then escape the level. I think the exit would've had to be opened by stepping on a key-tile. The level was on one screen (no sidescrolling) and on a grid. It grew harder level after level. I remember a lot of coloured tiles. It was a game in bird's-eye view.

I used to play it with my mom, and suddenly I remembered today. She has no memories of it tho, so I decided I'd try asking on here. I hope someone can help me! :)

Thankyousoverymuch!

Hello everyone, i am new to this forum and i am in need of help.
When i was younger i played a game for the PS2, it was an RPG game where you adventured around the landscapes and would fight random battles with groups of monsters that appeared. You started out as a young boy in a Dessert, Arabia sort of place and you wondered around until you saw some guy and then you battled a dragon monster thing, after defeating it you got a device where you could capture the dead monsters and get ratings of it and money, you were like a bounty hunter for dragons.

Once you were done with that you got into a spaceship and crashed into a forestry place (Not sure if i have the order of events right), You wondered around until you saw a young girl catching fish and suddenly a big monster came out and then a tribal looking woman came out of nowhere shot an arrow at it and you had to battle it, once it was defeated the tribal women joined you and traveled with you, you would complete quests for the tribe and found out that the young girl was collecting little animals to compete in a race or whatever.

Once the spaceship was fixed you and your companions(I think it was A Tribal Women and 2 robots) travelled to a futuristic place where you walked around and tried to find something, after an hour of walking around and completing a few quests you fought a fat robot which was a boss. This is the part of the game where i got stuck and gave up, this was many years ago and i want to try and complete this game.

Please help and thank you for reading.

I signed up just for this to re live my child hood so hopefully you can help me out I don't remember if this game was for playstation 1 or 2 but it was this game where you had 2 robots facing up against each other far away it's hard to remember but I think it was sort of foggy between them and you would have these weapons on the robots. The robots would take turns shooting each other with these cannons and when they got hit the graphics and movement were sick it's also just like front mission but I am sure that's not it but it's still the same concept

Alright, I am searching for an old strategy game similar to Age of Empires in a way.
I'll try to describe it in as much detail as I can.
- it was a demo game and it had asian looking civilization.
- in your starting map on the middle was a big wall which was indestructible, but wide enough to have army on it, with gates in the middle that could be attacked, you started the game with a people who could be put to work or sent to barrack to train to become soldiers or to hold ladders to climb the wall, and also in the middle would be some kind of a palace where the pink emperor would stand.
- in the corner of the map was exit where you enter another map which has hills with houses on them; which you could take to gain some kind of resources which would enable you to train some kind of strong warrior, at the four corners of that map were entrances to another maps where enemies are- those map are the same as starting map just containing enemy civs
- other thing I remember is that for food you could build some kind of pig farms, and also there your workers could become sick with some kind of disease which would slow down your progress.

I played that around 10 years ago and I've been trying to find that game for years.

When I was little, I was playing a computer game that now I do not remember how is called and I'm looking to find the game title. The game was a guy with blue hair that had several missions in many places, such as in the snow with icebergs around. Also on another mission was to an exotic place that fighting pirates used swords to defeat the pirates, who were his enemies.The game was adventure! If anyone knows the title of this game, please answer me. :)

Hi everyone, I got a really old game that I've been trying to recall for a long time now. It's an arcade game from the late 80's, early 90's. It's a run and gun kinda game, where you control a really small character (I mean, it's human, but the frame of the action is really wide), what was really unique was that you could pick up not only a ton of different firearms, but also mechas o some kinda armored vehicles. If your vehicle/armor was destroyed your human character would jump out of it and I guess you still had like a hand gun or something. Thanks in advance.

Hi I'm looking for an ooold Windows dinosaur game. Probably early 00's game. I can't remember much about it all I can is when you progressed it was like a board game. And there is this one level when you have to sneak past a t-rex.
Sorry it doesn't explain much, it was just so long ago!
There may have been some fossil building where you got pieces of bones and rebuilt a dino skeleton but im not too sure.

was it with a chick that had blue long hair and it had an anime style?

YES YES!! Please, what was it called?

Thank you. Sincerely. It is even on Steam. Going to play now. Thank you again.
