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.

That sounds A LOT like Contra Force, including the pause-jump glitch that I know is in there. =)

Not sure if its an old game but I haven't played it in a while. Was a 2D game on the pc, some guy is playing a board game with friends and goes to the bathroom but its dark and he thinks its because his friends are playing a prank on him. When he comes out he finds himself in some castle. I remember there being a room near the start with large piles of gold you can take, which you then find out is cursed and kills you. Then you gain a sort of evil sidekick after a ghoul or something tries to possess you and fails then accidentally traps itself inside of you.

There is a lot of adult humour in the game from my memory and was sort of like a dungeon crawler. But considering how vaguely I remember its actual genre and how many exist out there i am failing to find it.

Pretty sure that's UnEpic. I never finished it, 'cause I remember the movement being just a biiit too clunky for me to enjoy. -.-

I remember playing a game where it's themed in the semi-apocalyptic world where aliens/animals/morphs or spoopy entities in grey are attacking the last tree on earth. You're supposed to defend it but until a certain amount of waves it starts to overgrow and mutate into some spawner tree which spawns the monsters back at you and the game ends that sadly.

it's been over 9 years i haven't played that game but i can't seem to find it

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

That's probably Super Solvers: Gizmos & Gadgets!

OMG!!!! that is it thank you so so much!!!

There is a game i've been looking for for a couple of years now. I remember playing it when I was 8 or 9 (probably). It was a free to play game I found on a games website. It was a 2d game (maybe flash) (and it was not top down) where you were driveby shooting people in buildings through their windows and sometimes a policecar came from the left of the screen and you had to shoot it. I hope theres anyone who knows the name of the game since it's the first pc game i remember playing.

Maybe Metal Slug? Could be wrong.

No its not Metal Slug, Metal slug has that cartoony kinda art, this game in describing has a more realistic mechy contra type art,

Okay, I'm starting to get mad with myself so might as well ask the genius internet. I loved this one game - it's the 'get it on a CD with a magazine' kind.

It was match shapes, a like teris but with you moving shapes around to 'fill out' bigger shape on the screen so it would dissapear. I remember the little shapes came on wodden platforms and when you finished the level you would get platforms with money instead if you had empty place. If you ran out of place for new shapes you lost.

You had tool to change/destroy the shapes which you got by using a shape the tool was hid inside of?

It's similiar to Arctic Quest by Alawar/BigFishGames, but with sqares (I think?) and sharp red/blue/green colors, and forest/magic/crystal shards?/etc.

Is this Puzzle Inlay? After thinking about it for a while I remember there being shapes with tools inside them...

Can I also ask about a game from the old time I can't remember. The reason I want to remember so much is because I played it with my friend at his fathers office. We got stuck at one level and never finished it.
The game was represented by up to 4 agents and I think you start with one and then you buy or they come in cant remember. You train them and so on, up their stats I think or for sure give them new weapons and armour. You were set in cities of the future with skyscrapers and you can blow building, cars and people up. Also there were badass guns for the time, but my favourite were the standard minimachineguns. The enemies and you had electric shield. There were police faction, punk faction, rocker faction and criminals and other special forces and military. If this help, I think it was 3d because you spy from above. It will help if you tell me at least what genre that is.

Maybe the original Syndicate (1993) or its sequel, Syndicate Wars (1996)?

If you're into those games, you might also like to know that the developers released a "spiritual successor" called Satellite Reign a couple of years ago.

THATS THE ONE! THE second one!!! WOW our computer could not load the intro man...so many emotions. I was so skeptical about forums on forgotten games. i thought nobody will reply or wont know. Now that I found it i need to figure out if I want to play it or watch someone else complete it. Because I believe one of the levels was broken.
Satellite Reign you say...that also look well, especially the chicks.
Edit : I just watched half a walk through. The guys seemed to have figured out a lot more then me. I did not speak or read English at all at that time.

I can't remember the name of an old rpg on pc, it was similar to baldur's gate, the cd has a Skeleton on it I don't remember anything else unfortunately :(

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 :))))

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

Sadly, it's not the game I am looking for. I made a picture of what I do remember about the gameplay, maybe someone will recognise the game by the look of it, here it is: https://imgur.com/gallery/9T4bs

Hopefully someone can help me out with this one! From what I can remember. It is an online 1vs1 ship battle. There is something like a two minute timer and you control the ship and shoot cannon balls at the opposing enemy. When the timer starts to run down I believe there is a whirlpool that will eventually end up sucking one or both ships. As you win more you level up or increase in rank and your ship becomes better.

I remember a Windows (or maybe DOS?) game that I think strongly resembled the Humongous Entertainment point-n'-click games (like Freddi Fish and whatnot) in both art style and gameplay, but it's not on any lists of their games, so I guess it wasn't made by them. I was really young when I played it (must have been sometime in the 90s), and the only thing I can remember for sure about it was that the two main characters were basically like Babs and Buster bunny, except they were cats. Like, I think the attitudes were similar, and the boy cat was blue while the girl cat was pink. Pretty sure Tiny Toons started in 1990, so I guess they were trying to copy the characters or do a parody or something when the show was still running strong.

I think it started in a hotel or apartment building, and you had to go up and down the various floors finding stuff like keys to open new rooms and elevator buttons to get to new floors, and I think I recall one room opened up into a large mine. I may just be imagining it it, but I recall some stuff that kind of scared me as a kid, like some random interaction that turned one of the cats inside out for a second.

Honestly, I don't even know if the game was any good or not, or if I'd want to play it if someone does find out what it's called, I just want to know that I'm not crazy and this game actually existed.

Well, I remember a game where you had different kind of balls, spheres to destroy some bricks or something else. I remember that there was a vortex ball. That's as far as my mind can remember. Please help, I'm going nuts. I want this game so badly.

I remember a PC game where you travel in a yellow van to try and get to Vegas or something like that. The game was about trying to be rock stars I think. I remember there was a beach and forest level and there was some kind of money management aspect to it. Any ideas?

Hey guys i just made an account because I really need some help!!

So the game im searching for, i played on windows 2000 or xp.
It was a game with different 2d maps (i belive almost always industrial-winter-theme maps) and it was a 2 player game.

So you played as a red ball or a blue ball with arms, legs and eyes and you could pick up diffrent weapons like uzis, guns, rpg homing missiles, a flamethrower( i think) and probably some other weapons.

I remember the goal of the game was to kill the other player until he ran out of lifes.

Its not very much information but ive been searching over a year for this game.
I hope that anyone of you guys knows it.

Hi, I'm looking for a point-and-click game from the late 90s I think. The protagonist was a blonde girl that was a mage or apprentice of a mage that set on a quest to, If I remember it correctly, to free her father/teacher. I only remember that the game starts in her home (that's located in a forest or a swamp) do some errands in the village (like go by the farm) and ventures in other lands/kingdoms (there was location covered in ice only with a cottage).And while doing that she collected some items and ingredients to make potions and/or solve a puzzle. I was only a kid while playing it and don't remember much so I'm sorry for so little details.

I'd say it's "Legend of Kyrandia: The Hand of Fate (Book Two)" (1993).

Hey everyone,

I'm looking for a old platformer game in which you play as a chicken and you lay eggs to kill your enemies. I remember it being fairly difficult, both the platforming and dealing with the enemies. The art style was cartoony, but not pixelated as far as I can remember. At some point it played music from Knight Rider, that's what made me think of the game in the first place. I don't remember much else, just that it was a reasonably long and higher quality game and I never finished it because at some point it was too difficult for me at the time. I tried Googling for it, but found nothing.

I really need help finding this game i played in maybe 2005-2006.. You start as an ant/bug thing and you have antennas that can zap lightning and you first go through a forest without houses its just nature and collect some kind of Light? Then your on top of a train and have to avoid The gaps so you dont fall of and there is pumpkins on there and ghost and at one stege of The train your on a grill where theres tomatoes and hamburgers and you have to avoid The steam that comes out of The train or you get burned. I also remember eggs that you have to crush or this evil chickens without feathers and red eyes will come. There was a final monster on The end of The train but i cant remember it.
Its a really old and unknown game so i really cant find it been searcing for years! The name is something with zapp! I think or zipp

I'm trying to figure out the name of a game that I used to play back around 2003-2005. It was on the PC. It was a RPG game and you started outside. There was a castle that you could enter and face against other players, and there was also a dungeon below it. You could obtain items to become stronger and such, but I don't think there was an actual leveling system, and I can't recall whether you were able to save your progress or not. There were many spiders and other things that you could fight on the outskirts of the castle and in the dungeons. I know this isn't very descriptive, but I am dying to try to find this game, or find out what it was called.

i really need help to find this game.first is a longplay arcade video game 90s.The game start with a schientist who create monsters in his lab.in this game you are like mini vegeta and kill that monsters.The game has stages to ending.i remember the second stage is in the sewer.The final stage is in the lab of schientist and the last boss is like you but more powerfull and big created by the schientist.i know this isnt very descriptive but i am dying to try to find this game more than 7 years.
I paint the last boss in the lab

I remember playing this game when i was a kid. We can play as robots (if not robots, like the transformers) in a city. In this game, we could kill another robots with our weapons, which each robot had it's own kind of weapon. We could fly. And i remember there was a kind of golden robotthat had wings in it's back and used a sword. There was also a spaceship in the sky in which we could stand on (not get in) and it was floating over the sea in the city. And i also remeber shotting some bullets that left a sort of a lilac/ dark pink trace and came out of the wings of this golden robot. I've been looking for this game for a while now but wasn't able to find it :/
