That sounds like some sort of Donkey Kong game...

Here's mine. Sometime before Kingpin: Life of Crime came out there was an RTS Chicago crime game where you play the mob, go around pressuring shops to get protection, stuff like that. I only played the demo, can't remember the name.

Peabob:
For the Megadrive (genesis). It was basically Contra but you played as 1 of 4 Robots.

I'm fairly sure that was the European version of Contra: Hard Corps.
They changed it because of the german "harmful to minors act" which meant videogames could not be released if they portrayed humans killing each other.
The same was true for the original Turok where all human enemies were changed into robots in the German version and there was an oughtright ban on Goldeneye because of the "bloody content".

i have one that me and my brother played a demo of once in like a Wal-Mart or something. All I remember is that it was on the PSX (or possibly PS2 but i don't think it was), it was a sidescrolling action rpg game and you chose either a guy or a girl and they each had different weapons and abilities. I remember the guy (who was the only one a chose) and he could like, capture the essence of the enemies and transform into them. and i believe he had like...a staff or chakram for a weapon. oh and it was in a jungle/forest. i've been searching for this game like forever because i remember i loved it so much.

PANDEMONIUM!

Alright, I want to know the name of this game SO BADLY, I created an Escapist account for this exact purpose... Okay, I used to play this game on my friend's Dreamcast. All I remember was that the title was "Something Something Olympics" (I think) and you could choose from a series of wacky animals to compete in different races (sliding, running, and swimming). I remember there was this turquoise guy with a pilot's cap on the cover (statue of liberty green, either a frog or a penguin, we were never sure). There was an orange dog in a purple top hat with a tattoo of bones on his back (I believe his name was Mr. Bones), there was some kinda pink, big lipped thing with a bow... I think it was an octopus, but I could be wrong. There was the aformentioned frog/penguin, and there was also this totally badass purple shark with yellow eyes and red scars. It was a wierd ass game and the running was toal shit, but the other parts were SO FUN.

Not a bother! The reason I remembered is because I started using the word "Pandemonium" in conversation after hearing the title. Try it. It sounds better than "Madness" or "Mayhem".
Very Classy
Feck! That was FOURTEEN years ago! I feel OLD!

I am 99.9% sure it was Blast Corps,, heres a video for more proof.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6aJT2q1iDM

There was this game that i played on windows 3.1, im 75% sure it was called "ball" but that turns up nothing in google so im probably wrong. You play as a ball though, trying to get through obstacles etc, im pretty sure it was a bit of a puzzle game, very colorful, overhead isometric view. It wasent marble madness, it looked way better than that.

I have no idea what this was, it was on my first comp which was a 2nd hand 486sx bought from some guy, it came with simcity 2000 installed and this "ball" game. It was really fun until i screwed up the computer and broke it lol.

plz frnds help me

The Gansters graphics look familiar. I'll take a look at it more closely to see if it's it. There was this line "Sure, I could use protection" that was always spoken whenever a shopkeeper gave in.

I just rediscovered the game I had long forgotten.

I used to have a ball with this game. I played it for HOURS and HOURS at a time.

this has been killing me.... i remember a game i used to play on either the Amiga or my first ever PC (a Time PC!).
it was a smallish map, really dark, and you controlled a Knight who'd go round pretty much jsut opening and unlocking doors. you'd pick up weapons along the way and then zombies would come out to be killed too.

it was 2 player, one person would use ASDWX keys and one would use the arrows on the right of the keyboard. anyone know what the name of this was?!

Glad i found this thread. I have been trying to remember a game I used to play back in the Nineties. It was a space mining game. The basic screen was just a bunch of different planets that you produced ore from. Just a screen filled with different planets. Some were bigger than others. (i.e. more productive I can't remember much else. Anyway, if anyone could jog my memory I would be really appreciative.

A 2D side scrolling platformer where you play as a small creature that throws water ballons/balls/bubbles at enemies and use them to solve puzzles and stuff. I've searched for any information on the game and I created a thread dedicated to figuring out what it was but to no avail. I'm not sure it really existed at all. Maybe it was a vision from God and I'm supposed to design it?

PLEASE HELP ME FIND THE TITLE OF AN OLD GAME!!!!
I'm looking for an old game I used to play in an old MAC. basically it is a puzzle game about a BLACK BALL you would control with the mouse and the goal was to hit the ball against some certain cube (or cubes) which would activate in order to pass to the next level (the game had many levels each of greater difficulty). Of course there where all sorts of obstacles. It has to be from the early 90's (along with this game the computer had Prince of Persia II and lemmings). That's basically it, please I would apreciate any help!

Created an account just for this one...

1.) Dune? They weren't different races though so maybe not.
2.) Twisted Metal? Twisted Metal:Black was the one with the get off death row storyline from what I recall, but the series has been around since the early PS1 era.

No
for the second one the convicts were always in their respective pod/cars lots of weapon upgrades as you drive around and it was PC

Sounds like Carmageddon.

Sounds like DeathDrome ;)

I had it on a demo disk yeeeeeears back, and could never remember the name of it. Ended up googling:
game death penalty arena motorbike old game -flash
which gave me this thread, and I had a brainwave and switched "arena" out for stadium. Then I remembered that there were actually different areas you could travel between, so I tried "dome" and in a last ditch effort tried "drome".

It took me all day, but I found it. Your game was DeathDrome.

I've been looking everywhere for a certain PS1 game, it was some kinda puzzle, platform, RPG-like thing. You were some guy and you were on an island and your task was just to simply "Get back here before sunset". Although this wasn't the full version of the game, it was on a UK Playstation magazine demo disk, all I remember doing is trying to run from these blob-type monsters that had spikes come out of them to attack you. I don't remember ever completing the demo, although the game has been in my mind from time to time.

There was another where it was like grid that changed colour and you were some dude that shot stuff and the enemies grew in waves and had really good music to it.

I'm asking for two things here;
for someone to perhaps give me an answer to at least one of the above games, and if anyone else has a game they enjoyed but don't remember the name of?

Could you be more specific on the second game you want to know about? Unfortunately, "dude that shot stuff" could be applied to almost every game out there, you know? As for the first one, it doesn't sound familiar at all, sorry to say.

Kenny Doyle:

Despite it being a PS2 game, you could be describing Rez... in that game you're a dude that shoots stuff, with waves of enemies, plus it has really good music.

However, "really good music" is subjective and the rest of the description is vague enough to cover most video games, so you'll probably have to give more details if you can.

Sorry if it's so vague but it's all I remember from it. It did look kinda what Rez did, although it was an aerial view, each little robot enemy did something different and were all uniquely designed with each wave. I forgot what kind of person you played as, like some small character in a TRON-like outfit.

You should browse through this list of PS1 games:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PlayStation_1_games

and cross reference it with Mobygames' PS1 section:

http://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/playstation/

and if you think you see a description that's familiar, then search Youtube for a video.

For example, from the description you gave and from using Mobygames, I think it might be Blast Radius, and a quick Youtube search reveals a game play video, on an actual PS1 UK demo channel:

Even if that's not the game, have a look through the other videos and you may see something you recognise.

I remember this game on the old Apple computers at the Boy's and Girl's club (make your jokes if you must, I would too). It was basically a sidescrolling MDK. It had a character that looked similar in profile to the main guy of MDK (that weird helmet o-o;). The first level had these cat-like robots that attacked in huge swarms. It was anywhere from 2001-2003 if that helps.

This will probably be one of the most vaguest descriptions ever, but it is all I can remember after racking my brains for years.

The game I am seeking is for the Playstation 1. I remember hiring if from Blockbuster roughly circa late 1990's and I am sure it had a Japanese type namebut not 100% sure of this. All I rememeber is that the main playable character is white I think (either some kind of animal or human ...not sure).

I know it has something to do with the characters father or grandfather going missing/died/or send into another dimension. the character has some kind of amulet either a brooch or a ring with a stone on it. I am sure the aim of the game is to reunite the character with his lost family member using the amulet.

I remember finding the ending quite emotional at the time and left me thinking there might be a sequal or maybe I just got a bad ending and the magic/power did not work and you were still left alone at the end!

I know this is really vague but somebody must be able to help and rememeber something :)

I was thinking eariler about all the games i used to play and one came to mind that i used to love, but i cannot for the life of me remember what it was so I wondered if anyone else gets this same memory issue and who knows Might end up finding some classics we forgot long ago.

My one is a PC game It was a car game of sorts driving around and arena leaving a coloured trail behind you and you killed other players by getting them to drive into the trail you leave behind. I think the cars and arena were mostly black (or at least the version i had was) and the trail and 'walls' coming from the cars were really bring colours depending on team etc. Like red, orange, green, blue.

Well there you go, What games have you forgotten, Hopefully we can rediscover old games we thought long lost!

The game you're describing sounds like Tron, but I doubt that's what it is.

OMFG That is LightBikes. They got the idea for LightBikes from the original Tron movie.

Okay, this is going to be a really off-the-wall one, but back in primary school we played a game where you had to race against an opponent, but by gathering parts in a sort of sidescrolling game with puzzles on like, magnetism and stuff. This was when the computers had windows 95 and 98.

Also, does anyone have a link to the Maths Circus games from that time period? I'd really like to play the second one and get past that fucking monster bastard on Expert using the wizard etc.

Thanks guys.

Seems that this thread is inactive but I really cant remember one game which me and my dad played. It was a bit old racing game. The quality was blurry. So, you pick a car, the race starts and there were some random put rockets and shields. You pick them and you can activate them by pressing a key. The rocket was red and the shield was green. I think there were some oil spills on the track but I'm not sure. The objective is to win by overtaking the other cars or shooting them. If anyone figures it out I'll be very greatful of them.

Were there drivers for the cars that were animals? Like a polar bear, a moose (I think), a tiger, etc.? And it was a PC game?

If so, I might know it - but I'd have to ask my sister for the game's name and get back to you (she'll remember, I don't). If not, sorry I can't help.

...

Okay, here's basically the only game from my childhood I haven't tracked down yet. It's a PC game...I think I played it when I was 10, so maybe 16 years old? Might not be quite that old, but around that time frame. It was what you'd call a point-and-click, I guess. It had this rather melodramatic opening about how your character (a little boy) suddenly fell ill or wouldn't wake up or something. Like maybe he was in a coma? And someone (I think a shrink?) said that you/the boy are trapped in your dream world. (This opening was all in text, mind you.)

So when you start playing...everything has this weird, dream-like illogic to it. You start off facing a bar, I think. Typical of point-and-click games, you have to find objects that can be used in certain ways...generally strangely. There was a dock, and I think you found a dead fish there. Pretty sure you found a key in the bar...but it didn't open any doors. There was a sewer you could get down into by greasing a grating with something unusual...I think there was a strange character down there. Everything has this sense of something ominous about to happen.

The last screen I can recall getting to is the edge of this canyon...but there's no way across. At the edge there is a strange plant or flower, and you are clearly supposed to do something to it, but I could never figure out what. Possibly because it was just a demo.

If you recognise this, please help!

Please Help me. i've been going crazy the past couple of days trying to figure out these 2 very old games that me and my brother used to play a very long time ago. I'm pretty sure it was for one of the old nintendo systems like nes or snes im not completely sure tho. Anyways i'll do my best there is 2 of them.

They are both 2 player game's. The main one was this co-op game where if i remember right you were cavemen or something and i remember beating the crap out of whatever it was you had to fight with a bone or club of some sort. i really don't remember much about this as it was around 12 years ago and i was like 7 years old. All i know is we played it all the time and it would be cool to be able to hook that up and play through a few levels with em. ]]Edit]] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyIpV527P5A [[Edit]]

Second game. It was this war like game. this could have been for one of the nintendo systems or even psx or sega im pretty sure it wasnt the psx but i wouldn't throw it out of discussion because i can't be to sure. just like the other game i don't remember enough to give to much detail but Basically i always played against my bro I'm pretty sure it was turn based and every map had a middle divider it it kind of reminds me of worms in a way but you were army soilders and it looked kind of cartoony. You picked you people before the round starts and then take turns blasting people away pretty much from bazooka to whatever. like i said... seems alot like worms but it most def. was not.

Sorry for the vague details. Thanks in advance for any help =)

[[[[EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT READ PLEASE]]] I just remembered the first game no help needed on that. it was called Caveman ninja or ummm "Joe & Mac" fun game tho >=)

I remember a game for the Playstation where you were in a tank, and for some reason you were driving in an underground cave. I think the characters might have been japanese drawn, and the graphics were pretty bad but it was 3D.

i just foudn this thread useign google. and made an account bc i gotta find this game from my child hood for the ps1.. its a 3d game. um.. u start in some air ship i think. that is transporting a giant... whind up crank type of key... the key falls into the ocean after you defeat the boss of the ship.. an the key some how goes into a whale that causes the whale to become evil.. and the game has some pink haired/armored girl that helps you through most the game..... please someone tell me you know what the games name is >.<

Ok heres a challenge

this one I played on windows 95/98

It was an educational game, I think encyclopedia might have been in the title

it was one where you would go to different parts of the world and click on things

anyway your guide or main charachter was essentially a space frog, he wore a bubble like space helmet and had a lily pad shaped flying platform which was like a space segway (that could fly)

you could also go to his space ship, theres one thign I remeber where there was a song about the planets that went "Mercury now is the one...closest to the shining sun!" thats all I can remember from the song

now figure that one out

I don't know if this is any help or even actually what you are thinking of, but I also remember playing a game with my brother on the Playstation 1 and it sounds very similar to what you have described. The game I am thinking of is "Hogs Of War" http://uk.media.psx.ign.com/media/014/014334/imgs_1.html
Hope this helps!
