I am trying so hard to remember the name of a game I played a while ago. I believe its a 90's game and also an adventure company game as well. All I remember is a woman in a skin tight black outfit and she is breaking into this museum to steal a rare item (can't really remember what) but whatever it is when she got her hands on it. She set off alarms and right as guards were coming the I believe it was a crystal sucked her in and sent her back in time to medieval times and she has to find a disguise and solve a bunch of puzzles. That's all I really remember. It has been bugging me and I really miss that game. Please help!

Nevermind everyone! I found it! Its called The Messenger by dream catcher interactive. I recommend it to anyone willing to play :)

Looking for a PC Game from the 90's that was like a cross between Risk and DnD. Turn based, you built up armies w/fighters, Magic Users, Paladins etc and invaded/defended against other kingdoms. You could also send out heroes on quests to bring back magical items. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like one of the Heroes of Might and Magic games, although the description is vague enough to fit a pretty long list of series.

There was a contemporary military turn based strategy game for the NES where your military resources were tiles on map. I want to say the title had Desert in it but I may be wrong.

There was also a scifi style side scrolling shooter (it was in the arcade (with 4 sticks) and later on the SMS) where you move around shooting at things in corridors which you move between through doors in the background; Kind of like Fantasy Zone. I remember upgrading to a jetpack and kicking ass.

Help me remember...

i remember a 2D PC game demo, a point and click adventure game. involved a kid with a raspy voice serving as the narrator as well as the main character. at some point he talks about a "japanese beetle" and i believe he falls in a cavern after going to a farm or something. i also remember his raspy voice singing along with his own theme song making a hi hat sound like "ahteee ahtee ahteee"

Please help this has been eating at my brain for years and years!!!

Okay my memory is pretty fuzzy because I was about 5-6 years when I played this game. Now I'm 15, so that makes it ten years ago. I got this game when I bought my PS2 for the first time, it did not come within the box but the shopkeeper gave it to me.

So what I remember is that some boy (or maybe it was a gnome/dwarf/elf) was sleeping. He woke up and something was wrong. I am not sure what but I think he was the only one in the house or something. So basically he goes outside to his little village and starts running around. I remember the first objective was to find 100 of something. Not sure what you had to find but I think it was some kind of green sphere, or golden coins. So basically I found 99 of these, and couldn't get the 100th, so I was pretty much stuck. I still had fun looking for these things.

The boy was sleepy and very dizzy. He swayed when you stood still and looked tired. Atleast I think he did.

So any idea what game this might be? I'd love to hear your thoughts, and a link to a picture or two would be appreciated.

PS: I picked this game up in between 2002 and 2004.

Someone was wondering about a game where some girls danced and then a genie came. The genie destroyed a village but a boy survived. His girlfriend might have died too. He had to go to a dungeon to search for spheres.

Well, that game is Dark Cloud. So now you know that.

Hey guys!

Me and my sister used to play this PC Game on Windows 95/98 and we haven't been on it for over 10 years. We really want to know what is was called!!! Hoping you guys could help :)

Basically, you were in this ship and I remember there being aliens/dinosaurs/bug things that attacked you. I think you moved around in the ship and you might have been able to get out of it. (can't remember though) We were really bad at it, obviously considering our age and didn't quite know what to do.

So does anyone know the name if the game? :D I'd love you forever if you know it!

edited: and i think you crash landed on the island/planet or something similar to that :)

Thats sounds like the exact same game I came here to find. You were in some kind of slow moving tank with some weapons that had to be used in certain scenarious(acting quick with arocket when a two legged dino came sprinting at you in a rocky terrain). You moved by changing directions and then clicking move ahead. You had to find some kinds of alien keys and if you failed a nuclear bomb would go off. The game had three discs as I recall.
Some of the scenes I remember include a swamp you could get stuck in, some kind of huge toad jumping towards you, meeting a human looking alien by going around some rocks in the right order, a bunker at the beach.
I really wish I could get my hands on this again so I can actually finish it now that I'm older. I remember it being quite scary and getting me all jumpy when my brother played it back then.

This conjures up two possibilities:
It would surprise me if you mean ALBION, but it could also be the original Unreal.

Nope, it's not any of those. This wasn't a fps or rpg, more the likes of a point and click adventure. The 3D graphics were good and there was a liveaction introduction by some military guy explaining the mission.

hello everyone!

its ps2 game,its about comanding your warship, you can modify your warship with new parts or new weapon, we can have another 3 warship along with us in the mission, you can launch air plane to bomb enemy ship etc,
do anyone know this game?

I'm looking for an early 90's detective adventure game. All I can remember about it is that the detective's hideout had a big pool of inky black liquid that you went to for healing and some storyline events. It was done in a photo realistic style ala Tex Murphy: Under a Killing Moon.
It also had puzzles in it sort of like the 7th Guest games.

Hello everyone!

I'm looking for a PC game I used to play 9-10 years ago. In it I played as a grey cat which was standing and walking on its back legs (I think the cat had boots and a sword but I'm not sure).

I remember 2 of the levels. One of them was situated in a city, there were barrels and at a certain time I had to go underground in the sewer system (where I had to swing on chains so I won't drop into the chemical-green waste of the city). And the other one was like a vertical maze where I had to jump from one stone platform to another because they were collapsing after every step.

That's as much I as remember :/ I've been trying to find the game for a while now, I really want to play it again. Hopefully someone will know it. :)

I'm looking for an old game, it's shareware. I played it on a disc my grandparents found called "Encyclopedia of 1000 games volume 1" or something like that.

Anyway, the game is top down like zelda or final fantasy maps and you play as a kitten girl in a forest. I remember having to find this tree, but since it was just a demo you couldn't go past. I'm really curious to see what else the game has.

I think it was an RPG, and it may be a verrrryyyy old Hello Kitty game.

Perhaps it was Claw http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claw_%28video_game%29 it came out in the late 90s and featured a gray cat who walked upright in boots and wielded a sword. Not so sure about the city tho. But you did have to go underground and save your shipmates.

it was about a guy who can transform to wolf and other monsters a(one of them was a beer that can use kung fu or something like that) was a ps2 game i played it since i was 7 years also the monsters he was fighting were usually big that's all i can remember

YES YES YES! This is it! Thank you sooooo much!!! :D I'm so happy I can play it again!

nfcanest51:
I have one that is probably going to be pretty hard lol I remember playing it during the late 90's when I was a kid, a PS1 game as a matter of fact. I remember it as being a "cartoony" racing type game where you chose one of a few characters to race in a variety of worlds with vehicles like boats, space ships, and cars/trucks/semi's.

Each character's vehicle was in the same paint scheme as the person themselves as well.

Pretty vaugue description, but it's all I can remember :|

Thanks!

Wouldn't happen to be Xybots, would it?

help! okay so the game is horror and it starts off with you chosing between a guy(wearing blue) or a girl(wearing red) and they are standing next to a dark tunnel made out of bricks while you are choosing then you walk around this town or something where you met werewolves or zombies i forget

I am searching for two games. I last played them on a old computer maybe 12 years ago on a windows 95 or 98 (had the blue screen where you typed in the folder name). Anyways, the games were about cavemen, and in the first one, it was a single screen platformer. The game started off with a man sitting under a tree and the fruit from that tree fell on his head and that inspired him to build a bamboo box helicopter. The game itself was a single screen side view platformer and the copter delivered people from point A to point B.

The second game description is a bit more obscure as in you could fly a delta. That's all I remember.

I would be really grateful for a reply

That sounds like Ugh!.

Hi all.
The game I try to remember the name is an old arcade side-scrolling shooter. You control some sort of weapon, but as you advance, you gather other parts and it turns out to be a robot. The robot is holding the weapon you begin the game with.
Any clues on this one? Thanks a lot!

Looking for PC game where you would build a roman city and then build boats to protect your city. You could upgrade your boats and what not. Then foreign enemies that had blue sails would try to attack your boats/city. Played it during mid 2000s but was on an old computer.

Name of the game has been driving me crazy any help would be appreciated

Most likely one of the Age of Empires games?

Thanks but thats not it. You pretty much look out over the water the whole time. its more about building the ships then building the town

Colonization? Civilization 2? These I remember you can upgrade ships and resembles roman empire.

Hello everyone.

I got a tricky question for you, and it would help me SO much if i could actually get this game right.

I remember having this 2CD case named "windows" something... no, it was not an operative system ... One of those cd's had this full case of small demos of games of all kinds... and i remember playing everyone of them till exhaustion(being the case that i remember of Disciples Sacred Lands Demo).

SO there was this cd with demos, like ive told, and i had it around the end of the 90s beginning of 00s, and there was this space game in it.

the game was an old type like game, with black background representing space and some spheres representing planets with various sizes and colors. it was a old space strategic/rpg game where you would colonize a number of planets that would evolve and protect themselves while a number of other players (pc) would do the same over global dominion.

I remember it being very very simple. but i just cant make out the name of the game... the only thing i know is that those 2cd's had Windows "something something" written... and were some sort of compilation of programs, games, images N stuff...and if only i could remember the game name or find the CD's names...
Thanks in advance!!!

This is an awesome thread, found this through google.

* So I'm looking for an old awesome PC game (I believe it was PC) - with this futuristic car that you had to maneuver in outer space in different levels, each had different gravity more or less and you had a set amount of fuel too. I think it was something like Skyracer ? Not sure. Will I need Dosbox to run this ? Hopefully not!

* Another one I just thought about. The character looked a bit like pacman and it was this platform game where you had a lot of different levels and you had to reach the exit levels and you would have these little bouncing pads to get around and pick up ice cream or whatever it was if I remember correctly :) PC as well I believe. Hopefully no dosbox needed too!

Thanks!

Hey guys,

I have this game stuck in my head.

1) I played it about 10 years ago
2) I played it on a pc
3) It was an online game versing other online opponents
3) It was very kiddy-cutsie looking, like baby dinosaurs/ Robots, drill machines
-) You could shoot grenades, beams, underground bombs - You could make your opponent fall by destroying the land underneath them to make them fall to their loss, or shoot them directly.
4) It is similar to cannons, where you shoot the opponents taking turns adjusting your trajectory
5) You verse you opponent on different landscapes
-) Best out of 3 rounds would win
6) You earn coins i think to upgrade and buy better animals to shoot, every animal creature had different powers (fire, electricity, water element) , I guess you could describe it like pokemon sort of
7) You had to have an account set up to log in everytime you played

Ive been racking my brain to figure out what this game was called as I cannot find a game similar to it now to play, if anyone knows the name of it, I would be so grateful, thanks!

Hello everybody!

I can hardly remember this game which I played when I was 6 or 7, on the first computer we had. It was a Windows 95, and I'm talking of almost 15 years ago!!
I would like so badly to know the name of it!!!
It consisted of a series of puzzles played on different phases. The "setting" of the game was all very green, I think the name of the game was something about 'Puzzle' or 'Bubble', or 'Garden', I think, or at least the game had something to do with those concepts. When I think of that game, those words come to my mind.

Ok, and it was a series of puzzles, it had something to do with gardens, so on the first phase there was a circle formed by different objects: flowers, bugs, leaves, ladybugs, butterflies, I think, and things like that.
You had to rotate the objects of the circle.I am pretty sure of that.
I think the aim of the game was to rotate in the correct order so that you formed a series like the example they gave to you.
The thing is that you had to put everything in order, or to reproduce a given series of objects, by rotating, and then you completed the first level and pass to the following one.
I also think that the following phase was more difficult and the setting was completely different.

Does it ring a bell??? :D

There was another game about mice and cheese and cats. The setting was very dark, and there were many mice of different colours: mainly purple, yellow, red, green.
They came out of somewhere at the top of the screen, in single file, they walked and you had to get a cheese or something like that. I think there were brown stairs or something like that. I'm not sure if cats were involved and you had to avoid them too.

Please, if it rings a bell and someone knows which games I'm talking about, I would be REALLY GREATFUL!!
I want SO BADLY to find this games!!
Or at least their names, so ANY CLUE will be useful!! Just a word, a memory, or ANYTHING that helps me to keep on searching :)

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! :)

I think that game might be Sly Cooper...

The cat might've been a raccoon, and it is gray.
As for a sword, he has more of a sickle/scythe.

And you have to swing across things and climb and stuff. It really does sound like Sly Cooper.

Vitor Henrique Amorim Krol:
i remember a rts for windows 98 probably where you build your tanks like towers and your base kept spinning bringing you new pieces

i remembered something you could throw the unused pieces to hole in the middle of your base also
you could stack cannons to build higher tanks there were even catapults who had longer range

There was a demo i played on the PC a goo few years ago (maybe 18...), it was a sidescroller. all i remember is it being really fun and one of the lines when you killed someone was "you were only supposed to blow his bloody arms off!" (Italian job reference)

I know its a very vague description, but that's all i can remember.

ok so i have a game that i cant for the life of me remember the name of.

so excuse the vague description,
it was a ps1 game that you were in first person walking around what looked to be a museum looking place with older games all around the place that when you walked up to the machines you can actually play them. the part i loved the most was that with one of the games, you had to walk into a big room with a huge tower in the middle of it and i think it had like a giant person walking around(used to creep me out too). i know it had a racing game, pacman, and a few others.

any tips as to what it could be would be greatly appreciated.

Wasn't one of the Namco Museum collections was it? More specifically, Volume 3? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Namco_Museum#Namco_Museum_Volume_3

So, here's another game I cannot find, I played a long time ago, so the information probably is not precise. It was a SNES game, probably from the 90's, the guy, in my mind, reminded of the dude in young merlin, but I might just be confusing. You started the game in front of the gates of a castle, I guess. When you entered, a frankenstein guy, or probably just grenn, came up to you, and asked you for the 40 hearts you had. If you gave them to him, he would guide you until the entrance of the castle, and return your hearts. In the hall of the castle, you would find 6 or 8 statues, I guess, that could be revived with a certain amount of hearts, and then, join your party. I think there was a statue of a guy who looked like Yang Fang Leiden, from Final Fantasy IV, a statue that looked like a version of Robin (from batman) with longer hair, and a girl with, I thik, purple hair and a hula skirt.
The style of the game was kind of like Chrono Trigger's, I can't remember how the battles were, but the outside of the battle, and the graphics were more or less the same. That's all I can remember, hope someone knows

ggaa:
it was about a guy who can transform to wolf and other monsters a(one of them was a beer that can use kung fu or something like that) was a ps2 game i played it since i was 7 years also the monsters he was fighting were usually big that's all i can remember

Could be the 2005 Altered Beast.

Stephen Legerton:
I'm looking for a low budget RTS pc game late 90's all I remember was one faction was a sort of green space marine corp, the other faction wore blue they where human also sort of like corporate security, another were alien and mostly purple. It was same view as c&c and very basic graphics. I got it dirt cheap from a super market. I think the box art had a brown planet in the background.

That sounds like Warwind 2: Human Onslaught. It had a pretty cool soundtrack.
