Re-posting... Sorry.

I am looking for a game that was pretty old and I can't remember it at all. It was a local co-op game that was revolved around two wizards, one ice wizard, the other a fire. It had many levels, I remember it being sort of top down. One level was where you both start on a small island and you both waited for the boats. Both of you had to get on at the same time so that the screen would follow both, otherwise the other character disappeared from the screen(because the screen only followed the person that was the furthest ahead) until you go and bring them with you on the second boat. It had many puzzles and a lot of bosses to kill. I'm not quite sure if it had combo's or not, but I remember one of the bosses being a big dragon that you had to kill each body part to kill him.
I'm sorry if this is not descriptive enough, but that's all I remember.
Please help me find this game :(

There was this game it was on a ps2 demo disc( a blue disk) and it had like this fighting game where u were robots but the first level was in a blizzard or something can some one plz help me out :)

Can anybody remember the old dos game where you fly a small bomber or fighter plane then bombing the enemy place.If you complete the mission you watch a short video clip.A paper boy shouting extra extra read all about it?

Pretermit:
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 :)

That's it! Thanks :D For a game that's been bugging me for years that was such a quick response lol.

Thank god for this thread...I joined just to try my luck.
I have been searching for this game for years, so I will be extremely grateful if someone can finally help me with this.
This game is sort of a game for children, it is sort of educational. It is a puzzle game with around 12 levels, and I believe you play some sort of cop who has to solve puzzles to prove that the thief is able to commit theft under the given circumstances and such. After solving the puzzle, the thief would then teleport(?) and you get to solve the next puzzle.There is also a professor-like character icon that acts as the hint icon on the bottom left corner of the screen as you solve the puzzles. The whole game has a cartoonish feel to it.
Here are some of the few levels I remember:
One level requires the player to prove the thief can commit the theft of a few jewels in 12 moves. The solution to the puzzle is methodically taking out all the jewels from the drawers from bottom to top,then closing all the drawers in one swoop using a broom.
Another level involves a classic puzzle with the feel of the "Wolf, Goat and Cabbage" problem (http://britton.disted.camosun.bc.ca/jbwolfgoat.htm). Except that in this game, it involves a dog, a treasure chest and the thief, and the goal to use platforms (which can only hold 2 of these things at one time) to move all these 3 things up into a cage. The dog if left alone would eat the thief, and the thief would steal the chest if left alone with it. For this puzzle, the setting has an Egyptian feel to it.
The final level of the game involves moving through tunnels in a dungeon to locate the thief who escaped into it. You can make chalk markings, or light candles which are set in a circle. I never solved that level as a child and really wish I can find this game once again and solve this level once and for all. No regrets, right?
If this jogs your memory, please, please, please tell me its name! I am really desperate about this.Thank you!

EDIT: Found the game! It's called "The Puzzling Time Quest" for those who are interested. Thanks!

Ok so there is this game I played like 2 years ago, I've been trying to find it ever since but I just can't...It's like an multiplayer online(not mmo) space game. To play the game you had to download a launcher like program which displayed the list of the servers and stuff like that.. In the game you could choose what type of ship you wanted to use, there were I think 2 teams in each server or something like that and you could capture planets and build systems on them and then you had to defend them. The camera was focusing on your ship the view was like top down strategy game like I think but you may have been able to rotate it I don't remember clearly. The game was free and probably 3d and kind of old. Don't say games like Eve online and all the other popular titles because it's not. Please help me if you can and send me an email in case I don't see the post here. Thanks :)

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.

Maybe: Alien Rampage.

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

Ring of Red?

No. There's no combat, just platforming.

There's this game for either Sega Genesis or Sega Saturn that's driving me crazy, so I'm really hoping someone can help me out. I don't remember much but I know it starts off with you driving a car (in first person view) down a highway. After you arrive at your destination, you get out of the car and it becomes either a beat 'em up or a shoot 'em up. I'm pretty sure you drive again after every level too.

Ok, this post is really long and i am having trouble trying to remember this game, It is old, really old i remember playing it 2005 (i know it is older then that) it was on a sega system, or was it... any way i found it as a trail flash game on Pc, this is the game, you are a non human character walking around a platform on a bird eye view style game you do have co-op and the game is to pick up random weapons and powerups and find a specific person or thing to advance. the background was like space (i think the players where aliens) if this helps it was on the same system in which you would play football as monsters and you can enter a cheat code to sack the ref and splatter him. (if you have the name of that game as well awesome!) any way if more info is needed i will post on what i remember. OH update.. there are really weird power ups and stuff that is really weird.

I remember playing a game from the 90s or early 2000s that is similar to Myst - basically you travel through different time periods, search for items, solve puzzles, etc. I remember being in a medieval era, old west, ancient egypt. Its not journeyman 2. can anybody help me out??

other details - i remember gameplay pieces - in the old west you have to use morse code to send a message, in the ancient egypt period you open a door that takes you under the sphinx...don't know if this info helps...

The game I've been trying to find is from about 13 to 15 years ago. It was a PC rp game. You got to choose one of four siblings to fight for, and each one represented their own skill set. One brother was a necromancer type, one was some type of paladin, the sister was water related somehow, and I think the other brother was a mage. I remember that if you ended up choosing the sister, you could eventually control a flight of dragons and attack a pirate port. I'd really love to find this game, as it helped me not go insane after I was badly injured by a drunk driver. I'd appreciate any help!

Hey

Looking for a plane game on PC with a C&C style top view. Played it around 95- 2000. From memory wasn't a stand alone game, came on a CD with 10 - 15 other games on it.
Map was lots of islands surrounded by water. Probably Two types of ammo, one for shooting enemy planes, and bombs for hitting enemy buildings, plane buildings, enemy Anti aircraft etc etc.
had bases where you could refil your ammo, you had maybe 4/5 of these spread over map. And you could choose maybe 3 different type of aircraft to be. Probably played only with keyboard

Thanks for taking your time in reading this

I remember playing a game where you had a base, and in the last level your base turned into a giant robot. I know that there were military troops and you had tanks and other stuff. It was an online game. Not downloadable Sadly that's all I know :(

Hey

I am looking for a game for the PC from around 95-2000. It is a kinda topdown isometric view where you control small men made out of clay or mud. The objective is to defeat other mudmen around the map with various weapons you can pick up. I remember using a straw as a weapon which you could later use to suck up your defeated enemies and get health/power from them. I only had the demo for it but I remember seeing different worlds like an ice world, candy world and a more basic mud world of some sort. There probably was a campaign mode and a mode where there were 4 teams battling out with their own base which they could respawn from. If you defeated their mudmen you could claim their base and use that.

Don't know if anyone will get much of this but thanks in advance

Hello,

I'm looking for a game I played 10~ years ago. It was as far as I can remember a prehistoric/fantasy RTS. You could build your base, you had to collect resources and had to build units to defeat the enemy. It included dinosaurs. But for some reason I can't seem to remember any more. The graphics looked similar to Age of Empires 2. The game was, if i remember correctly, not well known and developed by an asian company ( not sure about this one but I think it was). Looking through Wikipedia also didn't help me.

Some games which are not the game I am looking for:

Jurassic War
Paraworld
Impossible Creatures
None of the Jurassic Park games
Chaos Island

I don't know how thankful I will be if someone actually manages to know the name of this awesome game I really would love to play.

Help!!!
This game is for the PS1.
You control a guy and you shoot aliens and move through places
It's coop and somebody can easily join in.
The menu is a spaceship where you are seated.
All I remember is being in a bike and avoiding obstacles and climbing through horizontal ladders while shooting aliens.

Hello!
I am looking for a game that I played in the early 90s, on a console that must have been earlier than Sega Genesis (or possibly it was Sega Genesis). In the game, the character changes into a bird when he gets up into the air, into a fish when he is swimming. There is a desert level in the game, with flowers spewing stuff, cacti,...

There's also this door where the character can open it up to get a password to save the level he is at.

The level in the air is in the second half of the game. There is also a beach and ocean level towards the beginning of the game. The character goes into a well, where he becomes a fish, and moves on from there. If I remember right, all "levels" of the game are part of each other, so that the character eventually is able to go back and forth between places.

Sorry I don't remember much more than this. This was my favorite game as a kid though. If anybody has any clue what I am taking about I would love the help!!

hi im looking for a game was probably around 1990, very old platform game..

a little guy travelled around the world through the ages and to different locations fighting bosses from those eras..

fighting bosses like medusa with a mirror in a boss used at the right time would reflect her stone gaze and win the level.

you collected bones, and answered questions about those certain eras. puzzles and that..

it was a long time ago and i was only young so some of it might be very vague to how i remember the game..

ive been searching for YEARS trying to find the game as i am trying to create my own platform game and that was the game
that inspired me.

so any help would be awesome..

Thanks in advance

YES THANK YOU! I've een wondering about this game for more than 5 years! Thanks man

Hi, I'm knew to this site and not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, but I was trying to find the name of a computer game I used to play around 10 years ago. I'm thinking it might have been a pre installed game on computers. I remember playing it on the computers at Comp usa computer store. Later my parents bought a mac and the game was on that computer as well. Anyways when the game begins I believe it was a spaceship that lands on a farm. The player is like an alien or a robot type guy. The first part of the game is figuring out how to get out of the farm. There's a body of water you have to jump or fly over and if you don't make it you get electrocuted in the water. Once out of the farm you walk down this road and I forget what it is but these other things try to attack you, you kill them and when their body's explode you collect these glowing orbs that are inside of them. Eventually you get to this big fenced in yard you have to go thru and in the yard are these big angry tomatos that try to crush you. At this point the game becomes alot harder and I wasn't ever to beat that level. also there is this sort of eerie alien music in the game. If anyone knows what I'm talking about please let me know so I can avenge the death of my little alien guy from the tomatoes.

I remember this old CD ROM pc game, it was really similar to diablo in the fact that it was a bird's eye view hack 'n slash. The name of the game was something like "silverlight" or "darklight". I just know light is in the title of the game. You could also select you class when you started and had attributes like dexterity and whatnot.

Defenitely not old, but there's Torchlight ( http://www.giantbomb.com/torchlight/3030-25983/images/ )

I think your game is called Shattered Light, dood. I had that game too. Hope I helped...now if someone would help me! lol :0

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.

Team Buddies. Top game!

That's it! Thanks!

Hey, guys. I am searching two games. One easy, probably, and one harder. This easier one is about o guy or robot collecting lillte children from stages and ghosts or slimes trying to stop him. I is on PS1, babies were crying if you have been hit by ghost.

The second one I remember only from demo disc. It is on PS1 too, 3D/2.5D. The look was from up. I was controlling a character (everything from up so I don't know if it was even human), who was destroying military forces (tank, helicopters etc.) The first mission take place in city, after that boss fight with tank, then you go to some kind of space station.

I hope you will help.

The first game sounds like a Net Yaroze game called "Blitter Boy". This game is only available on PS1 demo discs.


The second game sounds like "Silent Bomber".

lawrencein, may God bless you. You hit the jackpot. Thank you.

I used to play an online game that I think is considered fantasy role playing (idk may not be) and the scenery was a city in Asia. My character was a dude and in this game you get to choose your fate and the fate of others most of the time. He could do doggystyle sex position with girls in the beginning of the game, he had to fight men and sometimes women, there was a girl he was keeping in his basement, alarm clock woke him up everyday, he went to a school one time and bought Asian schoolgirl panties, the girl in the basement turned into his maid, he also messed with one of his dates panties at a restaurant, near the end of the game I believe he had to fight a very powerful woman. That's pretty much all I can remember that occurred in the game, I think I used to play it in 2005 so it's an online game from 2004-2007. I didn't have to buy it, it didn't come on a cd, it was a free online game. I'm dying to know what this game is so hopefully someone can help me out, thank you!

This game is called Otto Matic, careful with downloading it because some sites that claim to offer it are just virus pages and they even have this game as an app in the App store now!

I cant believe no's heard of this. It's a download-able gaming portal, like RealArcade. Name started with 'Z'. With a Joystick as a logo. It had a game that was a QIX clone. But you move in grids. The setting was a graveyard. It had witches in it. Cmonnn.

Riwix:
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
