Hi, I'm looking for a game I played as a kid, it was only a demo but I would love to play the full version.

I believe the game was a strategy game, and there was 4 races (Only one playable via the demo, whom were green guys). You could build a base up and could go exploring and kill stuff. I remember the level you were able to play was based in a forest/jungle and if you went to the top corner of map, you hit snow/ice and there was a ship that looked like a hover craft you capture and bring back to your base.

I know it's a really vague description, but trying to remember this game has been doing my head in.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey, I've been searching and trying to remember this game on and off for years. It's a RPG that I played around 1995 where you are a single adventurer (No other party members) and you start of on the side of a mountain and your only option is to enter the dungeon. The entire game is in the dungeon and I remember it being a maze with drops,traps, and monsters that I needed to map out on graph paper so I could find the way to the deeper levels. If you died, you'd have to restart all the way at the side of the mountain. The interface was 1st person and showed a picture on the left side for the dungeon & monsters, and then text on the right side. I know these are pretty vague details and I might even be misremembering some of them, but any suggestions would be appreciated. Cheers.

There are many games that would fit this description, but the mountain reminds me of The Shadow of Yserbius or its "sequel", The Fates of Twinion.

That was exactly it! Thanks so much for the help!

The game i am trying to remember is a old ps1 or ps2 game, its an rpg where when you deafeat monsters you can transform into them and i think, i am not sure but i think it ended when you killed the final boss which was a party members father pls help me out.

reminds me of a game i played as a kid, Threads of Fate

Ok, I have a game that I remember as well, but not the title...

Anyway, the game is a old turn-base strategy game for the PC. You control a small squad of humans trying to defend the Earth by alien forces [of course].
The only solid clue I have to give is two things:

-First, this game never actually released. I only played the demo of the game from a CD I get from a Greek PC Magazine.

-The aliens have a strange head. their head look somehow like this:

Exacly like that plus the color of their heads are purple and they have red angry evil eyes.

I dub this thread "Gateway to the Escapist," due to the sheer amount of new user posts.

Unless of course, it is a very complicated and well thought-out spam bot, and toying with us.

Hm...tests.

I need help! I remember playing this game when I was younger, but I don't remember what it was called.
I remember that you played an animal, maybe a cat or a dog or a teddy bear, that was looking for and collecting different things. The entire game was played at night, I think that "midnight" had something to do with the title. It might have been from Humongous Entertainment, or something like that.
The game is set around a house and I remember that one of the levels was in the garage, and you could click different things, not that that helps, haha.
I was born in 1993 if that helps, so I think it was made around then.

If you guys could help me out, that would be amazing!

Hi all, I´m trying to remember the game I used to play on sega, I still got it, but there´s a wrong title on the cassette, so I cant identify it correctly - it starts with a scene in the theatre where is a girl walking in a circus when suddenly a monster kidnap her and a boy come out from the seat and try to rescue her - in the gameplay he must come across to a various levels and monsters in which he defeat them by throwing balls and them - when he got attacked by a monster he changes his colour from blue to green; then to orange - the he throws a football and the he changes to violet. Please response if you got any ideas, anything will help. Thanks a lot.

hello people i used to play this game on my sega genesis when i was younger it was in space and you could choose different factions. it was sorta like a rts maybe thats what it was but anyway you built up and attacked other land masses in space and when you got done making something the game would say your "design is ready" the game also had passwords and space nukes that game was AWESOME

This is killing me Please help me

Bear with me here:

Old PC game where you had like an indian tribe that you controlled and there were other tribes and maybe they came to attack you or vice versa I can't remember, but I do remember that you had like lightning bolt powers and tornado powers and you had to kill them or something? lol I know it is so vague but its just how my memory is. I believe you could build towers as well?

Please let me know

Hey, it wasn't Alien Nation was it? That had 3 tribes you could choose from at the beginning (either female hunters, wasps or alien things) and then you built a town, found food and defended the town against other attacking tribes

Hey everyone,

I remember very vaguely playing a game on my very old PC when I was a kid (I'm 21 now). I can't remember anything regarding the name of this game or how it started or what it was about but around the beginning you start off on the ground and you have to climb a massive tree to get to the top. The graphics were like old school pixelated and I think you may have been an elf or something like that. I think I remember you had to collect these bottles or something. Enemies in the trees, etc... Sorry I can't provide more information.

Another game, again on very old PC, I think it was an educational game. You go to some spooky castle and you go to ring the door bell but there is some sort of electric puzzle you have to solve and then when you go in it has lots of puzzles you have to solve to progress. I think it may have been something to do with science.
Any help is great :)

Zakri:

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.

Was it 40 Winks? This is the only game I can think of where you are a little boy and you run around collecting things whilst being tired and dizzy!
Hope this helps

hi guys, this one might be a toughy. This is an old pc game from the 90's ish era. All i really remember is it had a tennis mini game in it, in which your character or the opponent would get angrier and angrier when one of you lost a point. A few of the words used were "loath" "hatred" "angst"to describe the feelings when you lost enough points. I think it may have been a puzzle game that was based in a spaceship, but of that i cannot be certain. If anyone can figure it out, I would be eternally grateful!

Im trying to remeber the name of a game I played in the mid to late 90s. It was a strategy game city building game. It was a top down view and there was an AI that you played against building another city across the map and you were racing to destroy them before they destroyed you with nukes but you had to build up to it first. I remember it being pretty in depth. the loading screens had pictures of nature type themes and animals. I remember in the beginning it saying that the game was dedicated to someone.

Anyone?

Sounds like Civilization possibly? Sid meir made it and is still making new ones today. Hope this is right

double post sorry

I NEED HELP. I once played this game on PS2 where you were an asain fighter guy and you used the right joystick to fight. If you tilted back you would hit the person behind you, same goes for all other directions. I just remember that it was a third person game where you would run and jump over stuff and then fight groups of people. Please help if you can.

Sounds like Jet Li: Rise to Honor. Great game. Hope this helps

Here is one that has been driving me crazy for months:

A DOS game; takes place on a spaceship where you complete a series of mine-arcade game to save a king who is trapped in a large glass container with green jello. The king's container has a bomb on top which must be disarmed; the bomb has a component which is a mouse running in a wheel.... Any ideas?

This sounds familiar and might be the same game im looking for. That is if you remember the tennis mini game i described above

Nah I know its not civilization.

I remember playing a game at school in the early 90s. Would've been on something like an Apple II, and the game looked mid-80sish. All I remember is that you played a little alien or robot character, you walked around outside in a sort of quasi-3D style like the old Sierra adventure games, though I don't remember whether it had a parser input. I remember large holes in the ground appearing in some screens.

It sounds a lot like the Atari ET game, but that's not it. I have no idea why this game stuck with me. I think just because I could never get past the holes and it haunted me.

Hey plz i wanna remeber a name of a PC game :

Im looking for a game that resembles most japanese/final fantasy games execpt in this game you control the fighting and the fighting is not turn by turn. I also remember having to answer questions something along the lines of this to choose your companion. Did you prefer your fathers strictness or your mothers softness? My companion was a fairy but i know that if you answer differently you can get different companions.

007avenger007:
hey i remember playing this game where you play as a horse and help other animals with their problems and also collect somethings... you interact with them and in the end i guess you have to help a wounded lady horse by trading something from some human... i know it sounds like that Genesis game from 1994 (crystal's pony tale) but its not... There were other animals like cows and stuff and i think you had a top-down kinda camera angle when you played... I dont know its such a blur i barely remember anything... i hope somebody could help me im a really really curious person... its bugging me lol

anyone???

Hello. I'm having trouble remembering a a PC game. You play as a black or purple haired woman cop and you start off in training. It's a third person shooter and you're trying to take down a bad company. The first mission is at one of the company's buildings. I think the guns shoot out red or green lasers. I remember it being fast paced and I think you can melee as well. Looked a little cartoony too. Help if you can. It's been so long I can't figure out this name but I loved this game.

I vaguely remember an Xbox or PS2 game that seems an awful lot like that description. Third person, name was vaguely Japanese (maybe?) and started with an O. Dammit, now this is gonna bug me.

Thanks man once you said O I checked that letter in gamewinners. Its Oni thanks alot. Now to find a download.... :)

Okay, my game is a super nintendo game. All I can really remember is that you customize a robot and use it as your charecter throughout the game. When you go through the game you also get more robots on your team. I cannot for the life of me remember what it is called! I will be highly appreciative to learn the name of the game. :) ^.^ (>^-^)> <3 <(^.^<)

Edit: Nevermind. It was called robotrek. :)

hi guys, i used to play this game about 7-10 years ago. it was a top down pc strategy game. I remember collecting resource like wood metal and gold, you could play as like native americans like incas and mayans with bow and arrows etc or play as spanish/american race with rifles and guns and could train like a squad of rifleman. it took a long time to play and i remember a biulding called a 'dweller' for the spanish/american race which increased your population. The landscape was mainly woodland and slightly mountainous for the maps you played on. i hope someone know the name of this game :)

Civilization, or Sid Meirs Civilization revolution?

There is a game I have been trying to think of. This might be a hard one as I only have some sketchy details.

This would be late 80s early 90s PC game. It is fantasy based, single player RPG game. Good graphics for the time. A 3d world environment. You were basically a night walking around exploring the world, fighting undead and other typical monsters. I remember the graphics were about as good as the game Myst.

I think the title was something similiar to Drakken or along those lines. No, its not Drakkhen for the SNES. Your main quest was to find (or fight) a Dragon.

Oh, one major thing. The game was buggy as hell. It would keep crashing at this one certain spot and you could never progress. I think a patch came out for it to fix the crashing, but I never got around to installing it.

hey i am looking for a ps1 game that had zombies and or monsters(im not to sure on the monsters)

This thread...is from 2010...holy shit

On topic: A fighting game I had for the original Gameboy. There was a Werewolf, an alien who could become liquid-like, a skeleton, a body-builder type guy, and a cyborg who looked kind of like a gladiator who appeared on the box/game cover.

Ok, so I've been thinking about old games I played on my Windows 95/98 Dell Desktop. Now, I can't remember if this game was a download or included on a disc, but I do remember it was a demo. The way it went was you were a racer on a bike, or a device of some kind, and you would sling around and tether yourself to different areas of an arena, and you were up against other bikes like it. I remember being red, and the opponents were possibly blue? For some reason, the name Slingball or something like that sticks out. I can't find it anywhere, though. Anyway, I had a lot of fun with this game, and it's just killing me I can't remember what it was! If anyone knows which one I'm talking about, please let me know!
