Hello everyone!

I used to play this pc game, where it was a space shoot'em up.
You would be in a big space location. You could pick up abilities as you fought creatures. After some time (or after killing enough enemies) a worm hole would appear, and you would need to reach it. One of the abilities included some kind of a flail that you can use with the momentum of your space ship.

Please do help me on this!

Still no help? I understand; no one wants to help me, anyway.

Wow, still no help.

Come on now. This thread works in the following way: some people check it now and then to see if there's something they can either answer right away or something that they could possibly find out. Sometimes it turns out they can't. And they do it just to help out a fellow game enthusiast, not because that's their job. They're the same as you, how many people have you helped with their questions?

So if you don't get a satisfactory reply (I see someone already tried, but got it wrong), it doesn't mean you're being discriminated against, it means that the people who look into this thread to see if they can help anyone find something don't know the answer to your question, and don't really know where to look or what exactly to look for. Sometimes it helps to post a more detailed description of the game you are looking for, and obviously the platform and the time frame are very useful. The one thing that doesn't help is to get rude with anyone who might want to help you.

Hope you find this helpful.

Hi im pretty new and i was wondering how long should you let your unanswered post go before you bump it?

Hello, I'm sorry if this has already been asked and answered but I couldn't find it anywhere.

So it was a PC game that I think would have been Windows 95 or 98. It is all from an aerial view at a little bit of an angle. Your character wakes up after having crashed on an alien planet. I'm pretty sure all the dialogue and instructions of the game appear in a box at the bottom of the screen. You find that your ship has been broken into many pieces scattered across the planet. You have to make your way through the different areas of the planet to find each piece and return it to the ship. I remember there being different puzzle like tasks to open up laser gates at many points in the game. I also think I remember the enemies being killer plants. Your character can also plant seeds (I think) and grow different things that pop up in little square sections on the ground (I do not remember why).

I've been trying to find this game for years, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello and welcome to the site. I'm actually not in any position of authority here, just a regular member trying to correct someone's erroneous impression of why they hadn't received a helpful reply. For rules, you should consult http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/codeofconduct , or talk to a moderator (I think the currently active ones are Basement Cat, JoJo, Fappy and tippy2k2).

Generally, I think bumping your own posts is frowned upon elsewhere on these forums, but on this thread no one seems to mind, at least to my knowledge. Having said that, you might want to give it a few days between bumps, just out of courtesy for other people's questions.

Hi everyone,

I've been searching this old game for a very long time. I only remember before the game start there's a trailer about a frog jump in to a river and get into experiment about the genetic and transform the frog into a army. So the game start with selecting a few character (but i cant remember what character) and once u ready you'll send down to a planet and the character will need to build some building and get some resources and in the planet there's some random monster where we can trap them or kill them to get the dna to evolve our army. It's kinda old game from 90's.
Please help!!

I don't believe anyone will know what I'm talking about, but let's give it a try.

I remember this being a browser based game with 3D graphics, pretty old, I think this was the mid 2000s
it doesnt provide much explanation for what you're doing, it's very atmospheric
don't remember the name and crossing my fingers someone here does!

- you're a little dragon, you fly the entire game, you only ever see the back of this dragon
- similar to shadow of the colossus, you go around defeating big colossal bosses
- there's about 10-15 minutes of just silent travel between bosses
- each time you kill a boss the armor on your back gets thicker and bigger
- the environment changes gradually as you fly, from craggy canyons, rainy plains, desert, a sea, cliffside forests, mountains etc
- theres about 7 of these bosses, no grinding in between them, of the ones i can remember:
-big green tyrannosaurus rex, the environment is very rainy, you kill them by making its babies (running along side it) bite it to death
-very end boss is a big red dragon stylized after an ant or an alien, looked weird
-instecoid-like boss (possibly a spider or centipede) that tosses bombs your way i think, tosses something your way, i think you knock these things back at it to kill it
-there is a centipede/worm type boss at some point, covered in eyes, that you destroy by picking up bombs
-at one point you fly through a ton of green hoops to increase your speed

when you finish killing the final boss theres some corny text like "you have now become a legend", something to that effect, and you go on flying into the sunset.

i remember really adoring this game (and other games like it) because of how atmospheric it was. i was about 6-7 at the time.

i posted about this before more than a year ago but got no bites! thanks :)

Two goofy terrible kids games I had for mac in the late 90s:

One was about a zoo run by a panda, very much in the style of a Humongous Entertainment game but it definitely wasn't them that made it. All I can clearly remember is a minigame where a bunch of animals stood in a line and each sang a note if you clicked on them, and another minigame where a walrus asked for a specific number of fish for dinner ("Fish for dinner, please! X fish, PLEEEASE!") and then you had to catch that many fish and bring them to him.

The second was a connect 4 game but there are two things that made it particularly interesting. The first is that rather than having a difficulty setting you could choose to play against a variety of AI opponents each with their own strategy and avatar. The only one I remember was Copycat, the easiest, who always put his piece directly on top of yours. Also, after the game the loser's avatar would run a little animation showing their defeat. If the player lost your avatar got beat up and bloody. The really weird thing about this game is that I'm absolutely certain it started with the valve logo even though I can't find any record of them ever releasing a connect 4 game. I definitely didn't have any other valve games as a kid and yet I clearly remember seeing the valve logo and thinking it was really creepy whenever I started up that game.

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

I still have hope, been bugging me for years now but as they say: hope dies last xD

What I also remember, it had a year in the name (maybe even the year was similar to 1086 - it's maybe even just a light ripoff of Conqueror lol as the models are basically the same)

Also what I remember that fights weren't necessary. You could just bribe the guards or avoid them alltogether. Fighting them was pretty hard though (no magic, just sword skills basically, you can swing the sword depending on your mouse movement or parry their hits)

Still hopeful as I imagine there aren't too many games like this ^^

For more info this game is from the 90s. I had it on my PC.
There also was no magic, you basically just had your sword (according to my memory)

I used to play this game on the PS1. You're defending against an alien invasion.
I remember it's 1 or 2 players, you have 4 guns which you can find upgrades for.
There were a couple of levels where you're on a bike driving away from the screen, one of them being a boss and the final boss of the game was a giant worm with a ring of eyes around it which you have to shoot to beat it.

Guys please help me :( I was played this game on PC..this game's goal is capture the areas by painting the wall..This game have chapters and waves..Platform game I think..

Hi,
I like this forum, 814 pages of people like me that are trying to recall an old game they once were addicted to.
The game I'm looking for is ~30 years old.
You had to jump from rope to rope, each rope had a different length and each rope was swinging in a different rhythm.
If it was possible, I would add an audio file with the game music as I remember it.
I'll be very thankful for the one that can assist with remembering the game.
Many thanks in advance.

I have one that has bugged me for years.

Arcade cabinet game in the late 90s. Top down vertical shooter with helicopter. You had a button for air to air weapon and a button for air to ground weapon. You started over a city and could destroy skyscrapers with your ATG weapon. Lots of pilot commentary such as the one I remember the most when using both weapons at once and destroying the scenery: "Its rain'n man!"

I think it was out around the same time as In the Hunt, as I played that one right next to it.

FlyAwayAutumn:
Well I remember all my games mostly because I still have them so I can look on that rack right behind me and see what I forgot.

I can not for the life of me remember this one japanese movie though, it was about these kids who had to kill eachother on an island so that they could survive.

Battle Royale?

Teddy Roosevelt:
I remember an old N64 game a long time ago where you had these futuristic motorcycles. Now, you didn't just race. You had guns. You always had a default autocannon type weapon, which fired a basic blaster round, and then there were various missiles and such. Three weapons I remember were the yellow rocket, which was direct fire only and had zero lock on and went in a straight line through the air. The red rocket was more of a guided missile that would lock on to any visible target and it would fly at it without following the track, so it could crash into hills in the track and such. The final one was a purple missile which would follow the course without fail and hit the nearest person ahead.

Hey everyone, I'm new to this website but I am looking for a game I used to play maybe 10 years ago. I believe it was on PlayStation 2 but it may have been 1 or even Xbox as I only played it at a friends house. In the game you have these little monster things that you can evolve and train. Similar to Pok?mon almost but with very different graphics. Also I distictly remember a tree with a face that could talk. I do hope someone knows what I'm talking about because I have been looking for the game for years it always was so much fun when I was a kid. Thanks!

subway surfers I thought it was train run LOL!

I would really, really appreciate if anyone could tell me the name of this game. I don't remember if it was ps1 or ps2 but it was a game of a small yellow character that was jumping around in a movie theater and he went on top of like a soda machine he fell inside a movie film or was sucked in i dont remember well, the movie film was playing the yellow character fell on top of a treadmill and a skeleton head talked to him from up he then fell from from the treadmill trying to hold his own an fell on a pirateship. that is all i can remember anyone know what this game was called?.

Is this Jungle Hunt?

And my game... I have been trying to find anything about it for ages... I played it in an arcade Brazil in the late 80's... 86 or 87, I guess... same time frame as Sega's Choplifter arcade game. It was similar to Xevious, but with better (for the time) graphics. Vertical scrolling, with "ground" and "air" targets. AFAIR The goal was to destroy crystal balls embedded in scaffolding. What stood out for me was the very realistic glyphs of the crystal balls. Must have spent a ton of money on this, but can't remember the name (it was probably changed in Brazil anyhow - "Xevious" was called "Columbia" here for some reason).

Adding some more info, there were power ups and the screen was vertically (portrait) oriented.

Appreciate any help!

I remember playing an old pc 2d game as a kid, it used a green hue/tone for colors and i remember you were a man going back and forth from either a sewer or a mineshaft. Could have been some kind of puzzle game. I also know i played it on windows 98. I didnt get to play the game much as it was accidentally deleted.
Here is an image i found that is really close to the game i remember playing:

Hi there! A tough one to the forum, let's see if someone remembers.

This game is either a late NES or an early SNES. I think it's a NES one.

It's very simlar to Faxanadu, even I have in my mind that it has a simmilar name, but after watching faxanadu in youtube, it's not that one. Even I remember the first few minutes having a brownish/orangish color all over.

I remember it being very similar and difficult to play.

Thanks!

I take it it's not one of the Castlevanias? If that's the case, how about Legacy of the Wizard? Looks like there are some brownish/orangish dungeon walls and such around:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mw49GWtonLk

Thanks for the answer. You are right, it's not the castlevanias but it's also not the one you sent me. The "hero" was bigger than the one in the video, much bigger,short of ghost and ghauls size in the screen....

Hey guys, So I cant remember the game i used to play,
So the things i do remember is that there were tv show characters you could meet while you weren't fighting monsters.
I remember that there was a giant tree and the kids from the show Codename: Kids next door were there and you could talk to them

Im pretty sure you fought monsters and ran around but the tv show characters is the main thing i remember.

Please help! thanks

Unfamiliar with the game in question but this is probably a good place to start

I'm gonna guess you're looking for the FusionFall game

Could it have been the PS3 game Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch? It's not shown in the Moby Games screenshots, but there is a talking tree early on.

Hi everyone,

I've been searching this old game for a very long time. Its an action adventure game where the character use fist, leg, or sword to fight. You can change character during gameplay & recruit people. I remember the game start at jungle where you can jump on tree branch. Sometime there is a tiger jump out from the bush. I remember the character is topless and wear blue pants. Another clue is when the character almost die there is a candle light represent the character life where it become dimmer till it gone off if the character dead. It's kinda old game from 90's I guess and I don remember from which platform.

Please help!!
Thanks in advance.

Hi, guys!

Having a hard time searhing for a game. I remember that in a first level(in an urban environment, had bums, civilians, cops in it) you receive a sniper rifle (from a guy with an orange coat, I think), kill a sniper who was located in a bridge, get arrested, escape from a prison (coudn't remember anything after that). It was most likely first-person, had mostly open-ended levels (kinda like in Hitman series) and was released before 2005.

Hi there! Just found this thread so I HAVE to throw this game out there. It's been bugging me forever!

Only saw it played once when I was over a friend's house. Pretty sure it was for the NES, but I could be wrong.

It was a side-scrolling platformer with a choice of characters, somewhat similar to Mario 2 (Doku-Doku Panic or whatever).

Each character had a different balance of speed, jump height, and health, from what I recall. They may have had other abilities, but I don't remember. For sure I can remember 3 characters. A little boy, a little girl, and a blob. The blob was super slow, couldn't jump, but had a ton of health.

I want to say I remember my friend called it "The Wacky Wizard of Oz" or something. But we were little and he could have been making that up, since a search for that yielded nothing helpful for me.

Memory is pretty spotty but this was a PC game in I think the early 90's. Takes place in a mental hospital. You get possessed every now and again by your ghost father, grandfather, uncle or something. Such instance include injecting yourself with one of 4 syringes, one includes the bubonic plague. You try and help ghost, one that was convinced that she had a child when she never did. One of the puzzles include getting out of an iron lung type device that generates a large amount of heat and the only way to escape is by using a lighter near a temperature control device. That is all I remember of it.

in case there wasnt a reply, it was called Blackstone Chronicles: an adventure in terror based on the books by John Saul

I am SO glad I found this page! I've been on a computer since we had to program pong ourselves into our pic's using binary code if we wanted to play...so this game I'm looking for is really old. Having add and OCD made it the perfect game for me. It was simply a box of cookies that you had to tilt to the right or left to be able to get rid of them. A prequel to tetras type games I think. Does anyone remember? I was on a Mac and I think it was in the 80's. Thanks ☺

There's this little German "The Settlers" minigame "Hiebe f?r Diebe" (2000), alternatively search for "Hiebe fuer Diebe" if you have problems with the umlauts. Normally I'd provide a link but there's no official download at BlueByte's.
But it's freeware anyways and pretty easy to find once you know what to look for.
