New here, I've been trying to find the name of an old game I played when I was a kid. Im positive it was for sega, but could of been for SNES. Only vague details I remember is that it was sorta like zelda in the way of attacking monsters and moving around on maps. But you had this animal or sprite that followed you where you drew different powers from. Anyone remember such a game? Thanks!!!

Well, we don't personally know you. Heh, how are we supposed to know when you were seven-ish years old?
Anyways, as you know these dates better, why not start by going through this extensive list of possible candidates.
Obiously you'll want to check out either Windows or DOS games if you're looking for a PC game.
Still, if the game happened to be some freeware/indie game it will be a bit harder to track it down.

I don't know if the game is called "Scrolling" since you can go in every direction, not just one direction.

Also, I remember that the game had several power ups you can pick up to use as a weapon for your spaceship, with one being a flail that you can use with the momentum of your ship. I remember that there are worm-like enemies that you can kill later in the game. And the game is not 3D, it's 2D with bird-eye view of the spaceship.

Hmm, I'm not sure how that site defines scrolling. Apparently they include "multi-directional" (or "arena") shmups as well, but I don't see "Zone 66" in that list, so I can't be certain. Still I'd start by clicking through the names in the possible time frame.

When you say PC, does it mean PC in the sense of x86-architecture? Somehow I get the feeling I might have seen that flail in an Amiga game, but I might mix things up.

It is literally a PC game. I know this because I used to play it on Windows XP. However, it came with a CD that had alot of demos and one big full game. HOWEVER, it is from the magazine company called LEVEL. So, I literally have no idea.

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.

I did some additional digging on my own, and read about a game called "Legacy of the Wizard". Which rang some bells for me Big Time. I'm still not 100% convinced that it was the one though.

It definitely could have been what caused my terrible misheard title. And the character select screen has a white blob in it that could be the blob I'm thinking about. It looks like it's supposed to be a sleeping dog or something. And a description I read talks about the family pet Pochi, who's a monster, and so is immune to the other monsters. Immunity to certain things is definitely a better description of its abilities than what I wrote above.

Any depictions I've found of this character have been a little pink dragon guy, though. Not the white blob I remember.

Okay, PC, Windows XP, Level Magazine (Turkish Level?). We're actually getting somewhere. :-D
Have a look at this page, maybe one of these CDs rings a bell.

Pretty sure you're thinking of Crusader of Centy (a.k.a. Soleil) for the Genesis.

FairyJerry_:
There was this game I don't remember to much of it but it's a game where you can choose like your character and like the packastan character. It's like an overhead of a level but it's just a battle and whenever you win, you get items/gold then go to different places, get an army, buy crap, and you took over the counties and shit. It was a bad ass game on the computer. I just don't remember it at all

What do you mean by "packastan character?" It would be helpful if you could give more details.

koroboronax:
There was a game I used to play on PS1, I thought it might be a multi-disc game but I've looked through lists of multi-disc games and can't find it. There were a lot of sci-fi elements, I think it employed a 3rd person perspective. It was a very long game, maybe 40+ levels, and it had a dungeon crawling vibe to it. I remember part of it was in a factory-like setting, part of it was in a prison, the rest I can't recall. I remember that it had lots of weapons, like every 5 minutes I encountered a new gun. The very last thing I remember about it was walking into a new room and there was a door on the other side that opened up, and a dinosaur came out of it and I had to fight it.

One memorable thing from the game that's probably not helpful, was that there was a rocket launcher that tended to glitch the game when fired, and what I vaguely remember to be an icy tunnel-like area.

I assume it's not Too Human?

Hi,

I need help locating a ps1 game I can't really remember. The details are a blur to me since I was young .. all I remember is that it was a 2d rpg, and there was this gloomy village that I think there were sick villagers? the whole scenery looks greenish and I needed to go in a certain cave wherein I found some tubes that were leaking and broken carts.

I played it around the 2000s, any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi! I have many troubles with finding an old game that I loved, so I add "a description" below and I hope it would be helpful for you to recognize it:)

The screen of the games was kinda like in Bomberman (I mean one-screen game). The background was always black and there was a few rooms with white borders. The aim was (I guess) to escape myself or someone else and the main character was wizard or ghost. It could also contain keys, monsters etc, but I don't really remember what was the true purpose of each level. At the begining of every level the character appeared in some crazy way, like circles or something. The score and all of it was at the top of the screen (on 90%).
Unfortunately I even don't remember the console - it should be Atari, Commodore or Nintendo, but I'm not sure any of it :(

I hope that maybe some of you have flashes of that game or even recognize it, it would be a HUGE RELIEF to me and I would be really thankful :))))

Hey all, there are quite a few awesome old games you guys reminded me of throughout this thread, and I'm not sure if this one was in there but if someone knows it please remind me of the name! It's been driving me crazy! Ok so its an old PC game (probably late 90's - early 2000's) and I remember the intro to it is a video of a guy being strapped into some kind of chair or control pod with cables being jacked in to him. The game basically lets you control these... holographic tank things and flying ships in a battlefield and you can switch from 3rd person control to being able to directly control the individual vehicles. That's about all I remember of it. I'm sure I will recognize the title once someone says it. Thanks for your help guys.

Hello!

I've been trying to find this game for years and I haven't had any luck, it's been so long I can't really remember the specifics too well, I think I found it on an old multi pack of games/game demos and I'm pretty sure I found it by accident.

What I can remember with certainty
It was on windows (I'm leaning towards 98), it was an overhead shooter (like zelda), there was split screen, plenty of guns, I don't think it was an office space but it was clearing fairly small rooms, it was released during the mid-late 90s (the graphics may have been simple but they certainly weren't ugly)

What I believe I remember correctly (it was about 20 years ago after all)
The graphics were above a standard nes game, you collected packages or something similar hidden in the level and it's POSSIBLE it did something along the lines of Operation Inner Space and used icons from your computer for the collectables. It wasn't quite as flashy as zombies ate my neighbors but I think it played in the same sort of style (collectables, not neighbors), split screen play was co-op, I don't believe it was head to head but it may have been. More packages, more money, more powerful weapons (I'm not sure if it actually had a plot or anything)

Thank you for the help

Hey I hope someone sees this, But i have an old game or two. 1st one, it was an old mech game, I just remember fighting off another red mech and if you died, you got a cut scene that showed a screw or drill going through a human skull, like x-ray.

The second one is, the opening scene showed I think 4 guys wearing red armor, and this robot(looked like a droidicka) killed almost all of them in a tunnel.

If anyone knows anything let me know!

could it be Gauntlet? If someone says "wizard", "ghosts" "keys" and Bomberman-like view the first game that comes to my mind is gauntlet.

Yeah! It's it! ^^ Thanks a lot!

Ok so I have been looking for this game for ages and am starting to think i imagined it.Its from the early 2000s and it could be single or double plaer. The characters were two cooks and there was fruit failing and stuff and you would need to jump around a lot.I think I played it on windos 98 n that is all i remember.

Hi guys and girls , I want to help me up with the title of this game I play as kid. It was first person /simulator (maybe) battleship gunner shooting game. The only thing I remember is that you are the machine gun place and you taking down airplanes, WWII perhaps, those planes mush be Zero's, but can't find any games. The graphic was more that impressive for a old PC. Date and time period of the game is unknown (it was second hand pc running Windows 98). That's is all I can say.

Yes, the turkish LEVEL magazine.
Well, I still don't know the game. :'(

Ok i've been on a Rom and Emulator binge as of late, playing all the games I missed out playing as a kid. One I've read about but haven't been able to find the name of involves dragons, mainly as companions (i think) and optional romance partners. You eventually have a kid with your chosen partner and depending on who you choose the look of the kids changes + how the game ends (including save the world and end boss stuff)

Any ideas?

I have a very vague description of a PC game I recall playing at a friend's house when I was a kid. Probably late 90s, early 2000s?

The game overall took place as a series of minigames over the course of a large map (or storybook?). You had to complete them in order, and as you completed them the progress on the map continued. I think it was a winding path, connected with a dotted line?

My best memory is of playing this minigame that I feel pretty certain was set in Ancient Egypt. It was a fairly static top down view of a field, and I believe you had to solve a puzzle that involved numbers and counting with crops.

Hi, I have been looking for this game since 2006 :-( Hope one of you can help me.. So here is the description of the game. I actually got the trial version of this game along with a computer magazine CD somewhere between 2003 and 2005, don't remember the exact year. This is a PC game. It looks like an RTS game like warcraft or diablo, with small characters and you look at the characters from above, a bird's eye view. There are multiple characters that you can choose, but I remember only the dwarf character which is good at climbing mountains. And you are in your city or town and you travel to nearby areas. While travelling to nearby areas, you encounter various creatures like swamps (or slimes), acid swamps (or acid slimes), skeletons, etc.. you can fight with sword, bow-n-arrow, etc.. there is also an arena inside your city where you can fight creatures that are a bit easy.. however as you travel far away, the difficulty of creatures that you encounter increases, some creatures even use nukes!! you can buy weapons (like swords, mace, etc) as well as armors from shops in your area.. sometimes while fighting with creatures you gain some weapons as well.. when you approach a shop, most of the shopkeepers will greet you with welcome. the shopkeepers' face will appear in the upper left corner of the pop-up screen when you click on a shop. you can buy a flying carpet (though it is not very clearly visible in the game), boots, you can equip a shovel (and the game says "the walls around you now vibrates/shivers with fear), etc (some of the things that I remember, LOL).. it is not a turn based game, you can move one or two squares per click and keep moving until you encounter a creature; creatures are not visible on the map until you suddenly encounter them during your travel and is shown in the pop-up window.. you can choose to travel to the mountain and continue your adventure there (if you are a dwarf its a bit easy I guess), or you can travel by the path, etc.. it is not a hi-tech game like warcraft or diablo, but looks similar to diablo..

Sorry for the long post.. hopefully one of you can help me find the game..

Oh I forgot to mention, once you encounter a creature, then it is turn based.. you get three turns, then the creature gets three turns, etc.. if you encounter multiple creatures, then each of the creature gets three turns..

Hello everyone i am wondering if anyone has heard of a old pc game where you had to build a faster go kart then the enemy who i think was meant to be a mad scientist or a doctor but he had these monkeys or robots try and stop you from building a faster go kart, you had to go around the building through doors to collect parts of a go kart and when you got the stuff and made your go kart it takes you to the race course, and you would see who wins or loses, you could use bananas to throw at the monkeys or robots, i think it might of been like a platform game but not to sure, so if anyone knows what i am talking about please please help me find it and i can help me find a way to play it once again, thank you

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts?

it isn't that game thank you though for trying.

Im trying to find an old PS1 game. I have very few memories of it, but ill try to explain it. I believe it was in a medieval time, as I think there were castles and such. I believe it was a RPG. I think I can remember the cover of it, I think there was a guy on the front holding a sword. I know that doesn't rule much out.
I'm pretty sure one weapon you could have was some type of slingshot. I remember the game being hard, but I was super young when I played it so that may be the reason.
I have looked before, and none of the popular RPGs of the PS1 seem to match it

*Edit: I remember looking down on the character, from high up. It wasn't first person. I remember the slingshot did like 0 damage also. I remember hitting a big monster with it, maybe a dragon.

Need help on this.
Couldn't find the tag in google or anywhere else and its been hunting my mind.

PC online game
Genre of the game: Magic, Top-down shooter, fantasy, anime, and probably more.
Status: discontinue.
Estimate year (when played): around year 2005

This game is a top-down anime/fantasy style shooter game, a character that I still remember is a fire witch (red wizard hat and shirt riding a "broom?"). Player are able to choose/select card (forgot whats the purpose) and able to shoot magic (ball) to enemy, also can dash and create ball shield to protect player. Map is not that big as it is just like a arena where multiple online player battle out in it.

Not sure if it's just PvP or there's PvE.

Thats all i can remember. T_T

Hello if you could help me with this that would be great.
I dont know if this game was ps1 or nintendo (i have a feeling its PS1)
In this game you play as a small guy(with a small bowler/derby hat) and you have a friend a taller fat guy (with yellow t-shirt)
I remember when starting a new game you start in the kitchen (making a cake?) then the fat guy sits on a toy train that goes around and you have to catch it
Later some evil cats jump out of a blimp and the fut guy founds this little cute (evil) cat and doesnt believes the small guy that its evil.Then theres this cat which throws bombs at you and you have to defeat it by hitting back the bombs(with a tennis racket?)
Thats all the story i remember :S
I still remember that you can punch the fat guys stomach he gets angry and he grabs you and crumples you into a ball and throws you,and you can give him apples then he puts on a college hat, and you can play hide and seek with him.

That's probably Super Solvers: Gizmos & Gadgets!

Never knew about this thread. So cool!
This may not get an answer, but I'm looking for a multiplayer phone game from when phones were still black and white.
It used mobile data (and could rack up MASSIVE charges).
It was a sort of rock-paper-scissors type game where you climbed up a leaderboard with Hackers, Brutes, and some other type of unit. As you "defeated" enemies you could get their monsters and you would rank up. Each type was weak to something else, but there was an option to burn up a monster entirely and get a level bonus against something. If no one knows what it is, I won't be surprised, but I really would like to know the name of the game.

Cant remember the name of the game i played prolly in the 2000s. Similar to Contra, but you have multiple characters each with different weapon speciality (i think 4, one was a normal gunner, other 2 i remember were a rocket launcher guy and a bomb trap set guy, and you pause the game to change characters(?) my memory of that is hazy) , and you collect powerups to change their weapons ( you needed to collect like 1 for the first, 2 for the second, and so on, there was a bar on bottom of the screen where you can select that). There were stages where you fight on the deck of a large ship, stages where you fight on top of flying jets, and ground stages. A cheat i remeber is the Jump-Pause trick, where you Pause right when youre at max jump height, unpause and immediately press jump again to make a second jump in mid air, and repeat till you reach your desired height.

Maybe Metal Slug? Could be wrong.
