Alright, I'm going to try here. I'm looking for this either Ps1 or Ps2 game. It's this weird sort of 3d fighting game thing, but it had platforming sometimes? The camera wasn't typical for fighting games, it was zoomed out, and either top-down or isometric or something. It had free movement in all directions and a jump button. All of the characters had a more cartoony look with more chibi like proportions IIRC, with the game textures not trying to be realistic at all. I don't remember the combat really being complex. Or at least, I don't remember thinking through a strategy with it. There might have been like two attack buttons and some kind of special move, but I can't really remember. The game kind of seemed like it could have been shovel ware thinking back, but I'm not confident in saying that until I see it. I don't remember it having that big of a roster of playable characters.

I remember there's this sort of bonus / side stage where you're in this closed up tower and you're jumping from platform to platform upward trying to keep ahead of the rising water level until you reach the top. And there's another stage where you're on this sailing ship, I think on the deck. It had grey metal walls and wooden flooring I think. Here I think you were fighting with other CPU fighters or maybe generic enemies or something. However there's these walls everywhere in this grid pattern, making a bunch of identically shaped square rooms. I think you might have been initially blocked off from others rooms, and you had to defeat enemies to open up the paths to other squares or something, but I might be wrong about that. I'm super hazy with my memory here, so forgive me. I'm pretty sure the game does have a way to have up to 4 players fight each other though, and I think that WAS the focus. I think those two levels that I remember might have been later in the game, like mid-way through it. I also remember the character's HUDs being along either the top or bottom of the screen, and it was just a simple health bar or something.

The thing I remember the most about this game though is... well, my mom made me take it back. I had rented it at a block buster. It still had like 2 or 3 days left. It was the only time in my life she made me not play something anymore because she thought it was too violent and extreme for me at the time. Like she was fine letting me play Mortal Combat 3 on the SNES. I... don't remember it being all that violent or extreme, and I didn't think it was at the time. I don't particularly remember is being super bloody either. I think it might have been either like the presentation, or the characters themselves were extremely vulgar with how they did things.

Other than that.... I think there was this stage that was really orange? It was like a straightforward, open arena for people to fight each other in. Idk I'm really stretching my memory now, I don't have anything else. If anyone could help me find this thing I would REALLY appreciate it, even if it's just a spitball of a suggestion. I never saw it ever again after that rental, and I certainly don't hear anyone talk about it. And I tried checking my old memory cards to see if I had save data of it but I didn't.

Hello,
unfortunately I have very few memories of the arcade game I'm trying to remember: it was a 2d platform with horizontal scroll and the main character was a tiny girl wearing a cloak and using as weapon a sort of "blue flames" that at the very beginning were a short single shot, but proceeding with the game became three or four in a row with a much longer range. I used to play it in a bar around 1990 (let's say from 1988 to 1992).
Any chance with it?

There are a few possibilities, but I'd guess it was Willow.

Thank you Midwoka, but definetely it was not. The graphic was much more "delicate" and the colors were more pastel.

Any other ideas?

Thank youuuu!!!!!

I'm looking for an adventure game from the mid 00s. Gameplay-wise it was a typical point-and-click adventure with lots of walking, puzzles, etc. It had a very unique visual style and world design though, with a dark and surreal atmosphere. It was set either on a space station or on an alien planet, and the protagonist looked sort of like Darth Vader with a big mask and a bulky figure. He had some brothers who looked like him, but they had different masks, and iirc one (or all?) of them died at the beginning, and that's where the game started. Almost everything in the game was black and white, with very few exceptions (I think blood was yellow), and it kind of looked like a comic book, or a very minimalistic cartoon.

Hey guys i played a game back in my younger days late 90's early 2000-2004

Many years ago I remember a flash game on I think Newgrounds or Kongregate?

You played as a chibi animal with pointy ears (I remember a fox but I could be wrong) with a customizable color and extra unlockable colors available.
You collected weapons, including a cute wand with a star on the end.
The main screen was a level selection map.
It was sidescrolling and 2D, where you could walk toward big static monsters in the dungeons and enter a fight with them (You could only move horizontally, there was only one platform and that was the ground itself). They were put at set intervals in the levels. Fights gave you three buttons at the bottom of the screen, lined horizontally; Fight, Defend, and Flee.

The final level was atop the clouds, with a night sky and stone columns.
One of the earlier levels had to do with a crystal cave and a beach at the beginning of the level.

Hi everyone!
Like many of you I've been looking for this game for years and it's driving me mad, so here's what I remember:

- It was a very old PC detective game that I played around 20 years ago, it was very colourful
- Point-and-click
- I remember the main interface as the detective's office, where you could either call witnesses or go visit them to ask them questions. I kind of remember some sort of checklist and a notepad during the conversations with the witnesses. You could also call a cab and head to one of the several places available. There were objects in those places, I have a vivid memory of a Poodle, and one of the places was Carnegie Hall. I think there was also a Pink Flamingo but I'm not sure.

I think the game was kind of Art related, like the detective had to figure out what piece of art or object was stolen, and get to the right destination using the informations given by the witnesses... maybe?

It's largely inspired by Carmen Sandiego somehow, but it's not that, the graphics were more recent, 2D and very colorful, and the destinations were not countries, more like locations in the city, or specific locations in different cities. "Miami" also keeps popping up but I'm not sure why...

Please help! I can't get it out of my mind!

Reposting this just in case!

Hi all!!.

Im looking for a PC game released between 1998 to 2002 for windows. Its a spaceship game that involves fighting inside your own computer, you have to recover the files that are infected in the computer, and you have to do it all along your "files" the game takes the name of your folders and you have to go inside the computer "space" to recover them. In the way you have fight this other ships and you can form alliances with some of them. all I remember is that you can either get "friends" and "enemies" along the game.

You play the game with a 3th person view from the top of the ships. And there are special occasions where you encounter black "holes" that let you fight a special boss that sort of lets you continue discovering and having "power ups".

Please HELP!!!!

I remember reading tests to "Virus: The Game" (1997) where you fought inside the directory tree of your HDD.
It was Descent-clone though, so FPS rather.

Thanks for the help!, but I found it by mere luck today, and it was A LOT older than I thought... it was "Operation: Inner Space" you can find the full wiki here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation:_Inner_Space (if you are intrested anyways... hahaha)

and Oh lord did that gave me a lot o trouble to find... I've been searching for years...

Anyways, thanks for the great help. =D

Hey guys, posting this on here because I've been desperately trying to find this game for years now. I used to play this pic game during around 2005-2006, and I think it was about a mad scientist being attacked by Pygmy colonies? It was a really weird game and you basically had to run from these cartoon pygmies and each Pygmy had a different appearance and a different weapon/ability that came with it.

Hopefully I'm making sense lol

Ok I'm gonna try and describe the game, It was at least 15 years ago.
I think I had a Win98 system (Game for PC :P)
Main Character was male, blond, his grandpa was Kidnapped by someone evil cant really remember too well.
You started off in a house at the top of the mountain and you had to turn on power or something I think the 'Skyride' broke down and had to repair it.
It was a cartoon style graphics kinda similar to Monkey Island or Deponia games.
Also a quick note, This was in Poland but I don't think the game was designed there.
Really hope someone can help me figure out this game, it's been bugging me for years as I cannot find the CD.

There's a PS1 games which i played like 15 years ago.
It's a side-scrolling games which you control a robot fighting enemies robot
In the end of each stage, you fight with a boss and after that, u got an ANIMAL pet.
You can summon the animal part to attach it to your robot for a short time and get a new skill/abilities with that. I remeber there's a horse/unicorn, a lion and some others animal that i cant remember.

Hi,

I'm looking for an old DOS game but I can't remember its name anymore.

The game was about bombs.
You started on the left of the map (platformer) inside a little house (however the house was part of the map, i.e. you didn't leave the map when leaving the house, everything was connected) and you could pick up all kinds of different bomb types. (cartoonish style bombs, round with a cord on top)
I think it also had a 2 player mode.

The goal was to walk to the right side of the map I think, but with the bombs you could pretty much blow up everything on the map.
I remember being able to gain momentum and jump very high, the bomb types also varied from weak to a super bomb that would explode almost everything. The bombs also exploded off screen, in case of the super bomb this was needed in order to not die to it.
There was also some sort of castle like building in the middle of the map, allowing you to climb up by jumping on it and it had more bombs to pick up and you could of course blow it all up too.

The starting area looked somewhat like this:

http://i.imgur.com/FFQeFiL.png
(the castle like area was similar to the house in terms of structure, basically just thic-ish lines with stone slab texture on them and you had to blow your way through some of them)

There was a brown-ish mountain right to the left of the house and I think on the far right at the end of the map too.

I also don't think there were walking animations, so the character stayed in that stance while it moved.

All I know is that it was available on an old shareware CD known by the name "THE BEST OF SELECT Games Special 8"

Here are 2 scans of it:
http://imgur.com/a/LMSQv

On the back it says BOMBSQ but there are no results when I google that term and finding this old shareware CD is nigh impossible. (the displayed names are just 45 DOS games of a total of 70)

I don't know what you mean by "delicate" graphics, but my other suggestions would be Legend Of Hero Tonma, Wardner, or Magician Lord. =)

Hello everyone, the game i'm looking for is a 2004 ish game i'd say where you play as an imp? i think, you had to swing to get to items all across the level, like a platformer. It has good graphics for a 2d game. thats about all i can remember haha

Hello everybody! I hope you can help me with this.

I am looking for a pc game i played in 1995 or 1996, it was in japanese or an oriental language and it was an strategy game with battles. It was manga, with big headed little characters. Like Fantasy General style of game. You had some troops or units that when they leveled up you could choose the type of troop, for example when a wizard leveled up you could choose if he was still a wizard or he became a cleric. I thought the name of the game was "Toko" but i cant find any information about it so i guess that was not the name. I did not understand the language but could play by trying every button. The game was the size of a diskette.

Please, help! i am desperate :)

Thank you!

I'll try my luck.
I remember playing a game. The presentation style was similar to Conqueror AD 1086, but it had no strategy and competition parts (as far as I remember), you were always alone, during a fight your character was visible from right-behind and the enemy appropriately as digitized sprites for visual feedback on the fight. The maps were not random, it was basically just a castle with multiple towers. You could talk to NPC's (there were bars etc) and you also could find chests (due to maps not being random, always in the same spots :D)
Looking for it for quite a while now xD

Edit: Sorry, somehow ended up being double post

HEY GUYS! SEND HELP ASAP! I'm going mental over my inability to remember this game title.

- I played this game about 10-15 years ago.

- CD ROM inserted which had a variety of miscellaneous games available

- One of the games involved choosing an NFL/Football routine where you could select as many team players and cheerleaders you wanted to be on the field, and select a movement routine for each character. For example, the cheerleaders had the option of waving their pompoms or doing flips in the air. Once you were happy with the way the routine looked, you would press the Play button and the characters would act according to the moves you gave them.
This game was a pixelated animation that included music and sound effects.

- Another game from the CD was a board that was set up, with a variety of tools down the side of the screen (on the right). The tools included a paint brush, eraser, mop (to make the board "greasy/ slippery"), etc. You could edit the board using these tools. There would be a marble looking ball that would drop onto the screen and move around the board depending on how you edited it.

I know the way I've described the games sound really random but if you've ever played this cd you'll know exactly what games I'm talking about!

Looking forward to some peace of mind!

Hello,

I'm looking for a game (indeed). It's a vehicule combat game where graphics are goofy and colorful. There are bonuses (weapons) that you can use against opponents. (And it's not Cel Damage)

It's certainly a 10-15 y.o game (I don't remembre the platform but It might be a Playstation 1 or 2)

Thanks !

Two games come to mind. The interstate series (Interstate 76, Interstate 76:Nitro Riders, Interstate 82) and the N.I.C.E. series (Have a N.I.C.E. day 1+2)

I remember playing a game with mini cars around an interior with real size. The game had different types of boosters you could use once you drive over them. The only things I remember are rockets you shoot the cars in front of you or some kind if turbines that appear on both sides of the roof on your car.

There were loops, jumps and even a football (soccer) games on those tables with little figures that rotate, which name I don't know in English.

I remember there was also different types of cars youcan drive, oneeven with 6 wheels. There was a beach map where you drive on sand and you can drive under the door of public bathroom where you see leg(s) that kick you out before you're able to see anything. (Don't ask how many times I've tried to glitch that).

It was about 10 years since I last played that, so the game is pretty old but I remember it very clearly.

That's probably one of the Micromachines games serie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLd84phJTiA
Good news: There's even a new one coming up very soon, Micro Machines World series ^^

OMFG I managed to find it !!! it was Gilbert Goodmate and the Mushroom of Phungoria... somehow i remembered he had blond hair... sorry for that info. Damn it looks worse than I remember! my imagination was amazing if I thought this was good :D

Does anyone remember a game they used in elementary computer labs. All I remember is there was an owl in the beginning and there was one game where you learned the alphabet a few was like G of Gum, J for Jam. I think it was more of a vocabulary game than anything. I'm looking for it for nostalgia's sake. The game was probably from 2000-2004. That's about when I played it.

So i don't know what system this game is for if anyone could help that'd be awesome :D All i remember was it was like gauntlet legend with the camera system and it was a rpg too! Also you fight an octopus i think, i also don't know what characters were in the game and no it's not lord of the rings i know how people think XD I think it either a ps1 or ps2 game but I don't have any other memaries of that game I'm very sorry

I remember a game that was either in Popcap Games or Coffee Break Games and it was about a kinda fat dude who had to take orders from the snack bar to the people in a bowling alley avoiding the bowling balls that people were throwing in their lanes. So, you had to maneuver the guy with the arrow keys so that he would get through by passing on the bowling lanes.
HELP PLEASEEEE THIS IS GIVING ME A HEADACHE!!

You can buy the CD-ROM on ebay for pretty cheap (seems like a German collection, so here's the German e?ay link. (it goes for like, ?5/$5/€5.50)

There's a chance that BOMBSQ is possibly the name for a different game included on the CD, as BOMBSQ.EXE is just a freeware Mastermind clone.

I'm not even sure if anyone still answers these, but this is one of my last hopes.

The game I'm looking for was on PS1 or PS2. It was a fairly standard fighting game involving a rather eclectic mix of champions. I recall one of the early heroes looking a bit like a knight. By default he was red, but I think his player 2 version was blue. One of his major moves involved shouting out "Zanzibar--somethingsomethingsomething." The final boss's name was Eodoka (sp?) and she was featured on the cover art, which I'm fairly certain was primarily green.

That's all I've got.

That's Danzaiver from Evil Zone (he was shouting his own name). The boss is Ihadulca. =)

I'm looking for a game that I played on PC around 10 years ago, so keep in mind that it won't be Fairy Bloom Freesia because that game was not out yet.
I know for sure that you played as a female and you were either a fairy or there were tons of fairies around as you played. It took place in an enchanted forest type scenario and you had one on one battles with enemies along the paths that were usually creatures of the forest. There was potions and something to do with 3 different colours? I know its a vague description but I would have been only around 10 years old when playing it. Hopefully someone can help me out!!

My dad always downloaded unique games for me. I remember playing Overlord as well at the same time as this unknown fairy game.

I remember a ps1-2 game that had a mirrored world, seperated by the clouds/sky and a prevalent feature was that you could travel in the sky. I think there was also a landslide at the beginning of the game that blocked your path. Details are very fuzzy but it's been driving me nuts trying to remember this game.
