There's a game I played during around 2000, for the PS1. This is very vague, but I can hardly remember it. It was a 2D vertical scroller type game with a foresty background, and you play as some kind of lion or tiger, and you collect these orbs, cant remember exactly. I think there were enemies you had to avoid because I remember losing a lot. Please help, its driving me insane, I think it was on one of those demo or magazine disks.

i know that it's mostly a playstation game [3 / 4] but i can't recall its name
you play as a girl with pink hair that is about to get married, and suddenly the whole wedding gets attacked, you control the girl later on fight enemies, and if i get it right you swap between two characters both girls but from different times if i'm not mistaken, i can't recall anything else the girls looks like 2D anime character throughout the game although the whole area you walk around is in 3D

Hmm, doing some digging, the closest match i can see is a game called Time and Eternity that seems to check all your boxes.
*PS3
*2d anime character art
*3d area that you fight in.
*Girl protagonist(s)
*Pink hair.
*There does seem to be time travel involved.
*The events are kicked off by a wedding attack.

yes i do believe it's the one thanks for reminding!

Hello guys, i'm really conflicted right now because i can't remember this game i played before and i tried searching everything i came up with on Google but didn't find anything.
It's most probably a japanese game, because of the anime look-like characters and all. The game also seemed to be dubbed because the voices didn't really fit for the characters. It's a hack and slash game, in which you play as a girl with blonde, short hair. Also, there was this demon guy whose powers were huge so he had to be sealed inside a book. And this girl carried the book with her and they got to talk to each other and know each other. Furthermore, i remember that you could have also switched between characters. I mean you could switch to the demon guy, which had a new set of attacks and skills, and switch back to the girl at any time. There were different ability trees for both characters. That's all i can remember.

I played a game, that is a village game with orange aliens, that you have to create a village on the space I guess. It haved some portals.

blobof89:
i remeber a pc game (win) from my childhood (1998-2002)called something like Z:god of war/destrution, at least something god something z(i think).
it's about a guy who doesnt know who he is, or where he is, but gets the name z, and goes on adventure to figure out who he is - he ends up fighting a evil god (with a spear?)- and become a god himself??
i guess its a rgp/action game you get companions, a girl with red hair, and a big brute guy - you get to custom armor and weapons, and magic.
the wiew is like age of empire, and can get zoomed in almost to 3. person.
you're fighting animals and evil creatures, and goes through diffrent worlds - reminds me alot of baldurs gate on Game cube.
if anybody knows what i'm talking about plz say so ! i miss that game a lot :)
thanks!

Sounds like Evil Islands.

So maybe someone here can help me out. I've been busy finding all the old dos games I played as a kid. I've found most of them except for one. I keep thinking the name was something like 'Trouble', but that doesn't find anything. It was a top down game, almost a bit like pac-man. You played as a floating head (I think) in a dark maze. In the maze there was 1 (or more) monsters. If you came in the line of sight of one of the monsters it would chase to the spot it last saw you. Anybody got an idea?

Guys i need help about 2 games. I have been looking for them for litelery YEARS and i can't find them. BTW they are both online/free games. I hope i'm right, but it was 2008-2010.

The first one was super weird/creepy. There was like a giant, moldy(yes you can climb on the mold) titan(not naked). He was really hairy and about 50 meters long. Your character is at the bottom of that guy and for some reason you start climbing him... I don't remember why. You were supposed to get to his head for some reason. It's night and there is a thunderstorm in the background.

The second one was pixelated(i mean 8-bit alike). You are a blue robot with no practical objective. You upgrade your guns and stuff to fight some black robots and at the end you kill "The main bitch" i remember huge and firing black bullets all over the place in patterns. It was weird ok?xDDD

Plz help i'm desperate. :D

Looking for a game I played in the late 90's early 00's... It must have been for Mac and most of the games I played came on Mac-Addict CD-ROMS...

Strategy space game, pretty sure it was turn based but maybe not. I know you had a starting planet and the map was a huge grid (maybe hexes?) but you built ships, landed on other planets and fought opponents ships as well. I remember being able to upgrade all kinds of things too.

I know that's fairly vague and a million games probably fit that description, but any help would be appreciated. Would love to find it and try to play it again. I would recognize it if I saw it.

Hi all , I am trying to find the name of an RPG game which was on the ps1. I do not remember any of the gameplay , however i do remember parts of the intro cutscene.

The only part I remember is that you are on a cliff and there is this stone altar with a large gem in it . at some point the gem activates and shoots out a laser beam which starts cutting a trench into the ground causing a section of the cliff to fall apart ( with your character/party on it )

does this ring any bells with anyone?

Lol. I just found it!!! It's called Starbound and had a sequel i didn't know about, Starbound II...

Can't seem to find them anywhere online anymore... If anybody could direct me to either, i'd love to find them.

Hmm, by online/free do you mean browser game? Heir seems to fit all the points if so.

not sure if anyone will remember this game, but the main character was a guy in a purple suite thing and he had this weird elongated head (kind of). i vaguely remember one of the missions starting off with you jumping out of a plane (or other aerial vehicle) and avoiding explosions on your way down into this weird alien facility. later into the game you met an old scientist and a dog the size of the scientist (also, the dog could talk). that's as much as i can remember...it was a PS2 game, and if anyone plays the PS3, one of the use-able profile pictures is of the main character.

if anyone remembers this game please let me know, i really want to play t again. thank you.

DamnCheese:
I remembered playing a game in the early 2000's , you were a little snail or slug with glasses and you were fighting monsters by making the longest words with some letters that the game gave you randomly...i really can't remember the name of it, please help

Bookworm Adventures

nicejanet:
I've been trying to remember this game for years. I first played it online in 2003/ 2004 on a Windows PC. You had to use things in a room to figure out how to escape to the next room.

For example in one locked room, a key was stuck in a door. In order to get to the next room you had to take a poster off the wall and slide it under the door and use something in the room to push key out onto poster. You pulled the poster back in and unlocked the door to the next room. There was also a room with a pool table.

The setting looked like rooms of a house that you only saw one at a time. I knew it took place in outer space because some rooms had windows that showed space outside. There was also an alien just chillin in one of the hallways. The graphics were really good especially for the time. Realistic and minimal. It was 1st person but you never saw your character, you just clicked around trying to move on to the next room.

Every few years something reminds me of it and I google around trying to figure it out. If anyone knows what game this is, it would be sooo greatly appreciated.

Mystery of Time and Space


Play it here! When I first played it, there were only a few levels, and now there's apparently at least 20...
Edit: hmm, you already found it. Never mind !

I googled for 'Talking Dog Scientist Game', the allknowing deity presented me with MDK 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv6PvZ3nKlk

There's this game I've been looking for for years and have never been able to find it. I played it when i was young on my pc. it was the early 2000's when i played it but i had all sorts of games from different decades on my pc so who know's when it actually came out. It was an adventure platformer where you play as an egg going screen to screen. You would collect upgrades around the world that let you get to new places. The first boss was this like, cannon on a wall i think? You get an upgrade that lets you shoot fireballs at it. The game was kinda obscure and indie if i remember.

If anyone knows the game I'm talking about it would be greatly appreciated if you could let me know what it is!! I've been looking for it for 5 years now!

Daffa:
I've been looking for this game forever.

- the character was looks like egg / yellow egg / something yellow oval

- the first stage was in the jungle. There's a stone that can be pushed. There was a secret way through the woods (imagine the labyrinth's wall) to complete the stage

- one stage that i remember. There was dark, rainy, and sea around us. There was only one way to complete and it was closed by red-blue-green lasers.

- the camera perspective is top-down. The graphic was looks like minecraft, in my head.

- It was desktop game, i guess.

Please help me, and sorry for bad english

Bit of a shot in the dark as I am not able to confirm all points at the moment as I am not familiar with the game, but there is a game called Speedy Eggbert, and later Toki Tori that fit some of the points. They both have yellow egg like characters, and the latter could sorta be considered minecraftish textures. They both have windows releases, they aren't top down though.

There is a game I played during my childhood. You play as a plane made of squares and triangles. You can kill your enemies and use their pieces. The plane can shoot. In the menu it says "Press Z to continue" or something like that.Sorry for the vague description and my bad English

Glorzifen:
Here's a challenge for someone.

Bit of a long shot.

Description: I only played a demo which was quite short. From what I remember, it felt like an arcade-style rail shooter, like The House of the Dead or something, but set on docks or in a harbor around the year 1750-1850, either during the American Revolution, War of 1812, or possibly something to do with pirates. You have what feels like an old flintlock pistol and progress through the docks at night where enemies pop up from behind crates, windows, rooftops, etc. I remember distinctly someone would yell out, "God Save the Queen!" in the background at some point (I think it was just a standard piece of NPC dialogue the bad guys would shout).

Year: 1995 - 1998

Source: must've been on an old Mac shareware/demo disc that came with some magazine lying around the house

Other notes:

-pretty sure it was the same year and disc as a Quest for Glory V demo

-people are wearing clothes that resemble Guybrush Threepwood 2009 version:
http://garotagamer.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/evolution_of_guybrush_threepwood.png

-I really don't think this was a popular game at all, I have no idea why it popped into my head as I only played the demo a few times. That said, I've searched high and low for it and am extremely curious to see it again after all these years.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

Redjack: Revenge of the Brethren. I remember that demo on a CD that came with Computer Game Strategy Plus magazine.

Could it have been An Untitled Story?

hello :) I have a game that I've been trying to find but didn't have any luck
if I'm not mistaken it's from the early 2000's and it has like a chicken logo in the desktop its an RPG,adventure,puzzle solving game and play a womens character dressed in black like scarrlett johanson from the movie avengers you start the game in a harbor arriving in an island I think and there is a castle I was trying to get in but never got to cause I didn't play it that long there are some knights outside the castle that help you and give you tasks and remember a knight standing outside a wc and wants to get in but there is someone inside,it could be a german game since grew up in germany and played it here, that's all I know

OMFG DUDE YOU ARE A F*****G LEGEND THANK YOU THIS IS THE ONE

Here's a real challenge for someone.

I played it on my pc. It could be 98/me game. It wasn't big game, it was pretty simple. From what i can remember it was 2d shooter style with side view and it wasn't pixelated or cartoon style. You could also play it with another person on same pc, (maybe with more but i don't know this for sure). You could choose your skin.

It was set in apocalypse world, you're playing as a soldier.

You're killing demons,skeletons and flying creatures. Walking from stage to stage. If you completed the level you could buy better weapons and explosives.

When you run out of ammo there was someting like handsaw, swinging it around him and it make sound like actual motorsaw.

Controls: both players on keyboard

Hopefully someone can end my despair of finding this game.

It's a game that I played on ps2 a few years ago, on the game icon or the picture for the game had this strong man with a sword he rised in to the air and it was a tiger behind him as his riding pet, you spawned in a prison where you fought where you had to came out and in the spawn there was this robot you had to kill, then later inngame you go to like hell where you fight a boss. I think the mission was to like save a women. I don't remember the game's name so I hope someone will help.

That could be He-Man: Defender of Grayskull.

I've got two games I haven't been able to find in a long time. I reckon they are from the really early 2000s (my guess is from 1999-2004, can't really remember)
They're both 2D isometric (top-down) games.

The first game was an RPG on board of a space station or ship, not sure. You could control multiple characters and there were some kind of aliens and organic materials around, it might have been a horror game, not sure. I remember you could open doors and such, it was some sort of a "dungeon" explorer in a way. The characters had different sets of abilities...

The second one was also an RPG, but in this one you controlled only one character. You started off in some dirty slum-like city street and you could buy cyborg parts from street vendors (legs, arms, whatever). It looked a bit apocalyptic but I'm not entirely sure... Then you'd go out, possibly through a portal, to some desert and you'd shoot wierd, alien-like creatures. You'd grab stuff and go back to the city. There were probably more levels, but I only remember that one.

Neither of these was top-selling since I can't find them. I think they weren't really advanced since 3D games were already becoming a big thing. I've probably only played demos on some old disc. Maybe the games weren't even released? They were fun back in the day in any case.

Cheers.

Hoping someone and tell me the name of this one. I've been googling every few years when I remember it and haven't come close to finding an answer.

Mid 1990s. It was a DOS game I believe (we have a Win 3.1 computer). I believe the game started with some sort of accidental time travel. You end up in a medieval village. It was a top-down view, you could walk around and explore inside and outside of the village. The world seemed huge to me as a kid. In the village you could do things like make bread and such. The key of the story on arrival was that there was a brutal murder in the stables - a brown robe, lots of blood, etc. Cant remember if solving the murder was the purpose exactly...

Hope that is enough detail. It's been driving me crazy!

The second game might be "Restricted Area" (2004). It was been developed by a small German studio (with a two-game-portfolio),
so, yeah, internationally it didn't get a lot of coverage. A lot of Russian players seem to know it though. :-D

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nf7lFvuj6_0

Personally I did find the setting to be interesting (Cyberpunk meets Diablo), unfortunately the combat was not.
The game also was buggy AF so eventually I gave up twice trying to play it for a longer time.

Thanks, you've guessed it! Now to waste hundreds of hours trying to download it :) If anyone else could help me with the other game, I'd be thrilled.

Have a couple of games I can't seem to find the names for one was popular in the 90s it was a quest/mortal kombat type fighting game, the weird thing was if you wanted to you could choose to be the person you were fighting to continue your quest for example the first guy you fight as a ninja is some guy with fans that does flips it would get interactive and let the characters talk to one another, when you defeat the fan guy the man character asks "huh... who are you?" that phrase seemed to be popular. The bosses you fight are apparently guys who have been hypnotized to fight you, once defeated they join your party, it was a multiplayer game. The other game is from the 80s you are a knight in a suit of armor on a quest and if something hit you a piece of your armor would fly off, if you were quick enough you could catch it, if not then you lost that piece.
