Hello Everyone. I'm trying to remember a game I played as a kid (late 90s, early 2000s). My memory is pretty fuzzy about it. I believe it was probably hand drawn and it may have been point and click. At one point there was a worm, I believe in a bird's nest that you had to catch in order to get an item (don't remember if it was string, or the worm itself). Towards the end of the game I remember there also being a maze that you had to go through in order to get to a castle, or was it a tower(?), maybe neither. The maze didn't have walls to it, but rather it was either water or lava that stopped you from being able to just walk across. I know it's not much, but it is all I remember (somewhat) properly, I fear a lot of the details of what the game was properly about have become jumbled in my head. It's been killing me lately to remember what game it was. Thank you!

Hello I'm trying to remember a game I played between 2004-2005 in my PC. The game was really strange and mysterious but I remember that your character could turn himself into a animal, was kinda like a surival game in First Person View, your character was in something like a forest, with snow, blue/dark sky, you could find another animals, and some times you could see a UFO abducting cows and bigfoots.. your characater doesnt had guns or anyweapons at least in the early of the game. My brother says that also had a mode that you could choose creatures/animals and go to a ''fight'' in the middle of the forest, but the game's atmosphere at main campaign was really strange. I'll list here some important characteristics of the game.

1.Had Snow

2.Scenario like a boreal forest

3. You could turn yourself into a animal/ play with animals I dont remember for sure.

4. Had a UFO abducting Cows

5. First Person View /Something like survival atmosphere

6. Good graphics to the time, it was not cartornize

7. I played in my PC

So back when I was a kid (early 2000s) I remember this PC game with a brother and sister. They found and collected computer bugs (used as traps) to trap the villain with either a claw or a net. One of the bugs was an L rotated twice (either clockwise or counter clockwise doesn't matter) and it had a tongue that you had to hit to make the platform fall and drop a ball onto something else. Help me please.

There was one first person shooter, where you was in some resistance movement in the future and you stole some wierd technology that allowed you to resurrect at some pod if you died. And at the end there was boss that had better version of this and was able to heal wounds instantly so you had to kill him over and over again until he started to heal with errors and died finally.

Hey new here. Im looking for an old Nintendo 64 game that i loved playing as a kid but have very faint memories on the details. It was kind of like a spacecraft shooting game where you progress through different stages. and one of the big bosses, after destroying him, he'd come back to life as a smaller piece of his original form. it did that a couple of times. any help would be awesome. Thanks!

You mean... Starfox 64? >.>

no. it was more of like a birds eye view from which you played instead of first person pop

Ohhhhh... Maybe Star Soldier: Vanishing Earth, then.

Hey guys, I'm needing some help with a game I used to play as a kid, I can't remember much, what I remember is that it was a 3D game with pretty much a cartoon style like it was a game for kids, I remember that you could get something to turn into a plane/heli, a boat and a car, but only one at a time, like you could transform something and use those vehicles whenever you wanted I can't remember what the player was but I think was a animal. That's all I got D: anyone knows?

There was an old, old pc game that my computer science class in elementary school let us play that i can't remember the name of. It was an educational game and the part of it i played the most had to do with traveling through time and i think there was a train pictured on the game screen that went through the time periods as you moved the time using a bar on the bottom of the screen. I remember there was a swirling vortex animation and a "shwoop" noise when you skipped forward a big unit of time. anybody remember what i'm talking about?

Alright, so it's been literal years since this guy's post, but I'm 99.9% sure I figured out what game this is after a few hours of searching. It seems to me like it's Mighty Math Zoo Zillions because I definitely remember playing this as a kid, and the train described is exactly the same "shwoop" noise and all. It's not time travel like I also thought it was, but other than that I think I've got it. Glad I finally found it because it has been driving me crazy for years!

hey everyone, there's a game I played a long time ago and I really don't remember much about it, but it seems very old now, it was a flash game about earth dying and humans finding a new planet but other alien races find it too. it was pixelated, I think, and it had its own chat. also, evey faction had their own color.

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?

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...

Unfortunately no. The more I think the less I'm sure about the tools so I might've blended in some other game.
What's the most sure of is the wooden platforms, colour scheme and forest background.

I'm looking for a game that has been bugging me for years now that I used to play when I was younger. All I remember is that there is like a goblin army that takes over a town or castle or something and you have to fight through and there is a battle in a castle bedroom or something against a flying sword/swords. Please for the love of God help!

HyperGamer08:
What game featured you playing with tools like drills, hammer, water gun and more stuff and tools which you use to create mess unto the screen? I'm pretty sure it's not that old I just don't remember what its title is. All I know is that I played it on a potato-grade computer. Help.

This one?

There was an old game, windows 98 or earlier that was point and click. You went into like a boarded up old house or something and I remember something with a chandelier and like a secret passage under a staircase. I wanna say that after a certain length of time some monsters would run out and grab you or something like that. Any thoughts?

Hugo's House of Horrors?

Hello all, trying to recall the name of an old PC game: this would be in the early to mid 90's range.

It was a card / puzzle game that was (I think) based on astrology (or some other type of mysticism). There were background scenes that were based on the seasons (I think) and I recall the game having a very eastern feel to it. Overall the game was very peaceful.

Any ideas?!

I can picture what you're describing, so I'm sure I've played this at some point. I'll think on it some more, because now it's gonna bug me too. :)

Hi.
I remember a game where you have to place yourself on empty spots of the screen between colored horizontal and vertical bars that move on the same rythm as some hectic techno music.
I'm not sure the game is very old (maybe ten-fifteen years maximum). The game plays like a scroller except the screen doesnt scroll. It's just bars appearing on the edges of the screen and you must move out of their way before they cross the screen and crush you.
I think it was mouse controlled but not 100% sure about that.

The game I try to remember looks like Hexagon (and plays similarly) except it's bars appearing accross the screen instead of ... hexagons.
I'd say it's most likely a "recent" game (between 2005 and 2015).

Hello,
I remember a game my aunt used to play on one of the Atari systems, it was somewhat of a platformer (Or there were platforms in it at least) It may have been a side scroller , and I think you played as a wizard or something, I distinctly remember it being in a forest, and I think there was something to do with rabbits. I honestly don't remember anything else.

I remember one PC game I got in a bargain bin. I was playing it around 2000 maybe but I think it was older than that. It was a point and click adventure game with prerendered backgrounds and 3D sprites for enemies and characters, like the original Resident Evil games. It was set in space and the only detail I remember is that you wake up in some sort of futuristic jail cell. If you try to escape, a floating robot would shock you and you had to beat it to death with the severed arm of a dead creature in the cell with you (which I think you had to kill too?) After you beat the robot up I think it would malfunction and then fly into the force field blocking the entrance to the cell and explode.

Hello all. There's this game I remember playing on either the ps1 or the ps2 where you and a friend would take turns on this co-op game and you couldn't see your opponents pieces until they were near your pieces, I think the pieces were tanks but I'm not too sure and i think it had a similar goal to a game of chess.

hello im trying to find an very old game i can describe what it looked like but i dunno the name so here we go.
1:main character was a purple dinosaur (not barney)
2:the game started on a weird platform only 1 on the screen but it was odd shaped like a long road with turns.
3:you could make the Dino walk around the platform but he did so VERY slow and had loud stomping sounds.
4:it was loaded from either an 8 inch disc or a floppy.
5: it looked graphically like Atari games a blackness with colorful platforms yet it was slightly 3D in a way.

I've been looking for this game for years and haven't found it again. any clues or suggestions would be great THANKS!!

This has probably been asked before, but after reading about 20 pages I just decided to just post.

I played a game in the nearly 2000's where you had to build these contraptions using things like fans, scissors, conveyor belts, balloons, etc. I don't remember the goal of the game, but the main characters were 2 mice, one large blue one and a small yellow one? I think you had to figure out how to feed them the cheese or something.

I think there was a mission mode where you had to complete levels, as well as a free play mode where you could design your own.

Just an fyi, it is not The Incredible Machine, but very similar contraptions.

Edit: at the time I also had a disc that had a ton of games on it from everything from brick break, to a 3d spaceship game, to Pac man, and a ton of,others. Dont know if that helps.

Thank you in advance.

The Game your thinking of is Sid and Al's incredible toon machine. there's another name for it to Sid and Al's incredible toons.
Oh and Sid was the yellow mouse and Al was a cat.
i had this game as well along with w/e that dinosaur game is and trophy bass 2 great games.

Hi! I have two games to ask;

1-) The game was about drawing doodles to make our ball collect stars, the game had that physics features and i remember that you can draw to the map screen of the game. It was a puzzle as you guess.

2-) The second one was a fantasy game i guess? There was a little circle area that changes the look every level. I remember that you dispatch some workers, and must give them potions or they got red in the and and don't remember what happens next. My brother said that it was a game of a movie but we both not sure about that. The game had like lepricons that collects money for you.

That's all I remember about that both. Thanks for all the helps from now!

Hi all,

I'm also looking for a really old game. Think it was out in the early 80's, possibly on a Mac. Was a basic 2D game of a little guy pushing gold bags around a maze and having to put them in certain spots.
It had about 50 or 100 levels.

Any ideas?

Thanks :-)

Ok this one is really hard but i tried everything to find this game so here goes. It was one of those try to escape the building game but with a detective twist to it, i remember that is started in a dark corridor and u have to look for the light switch, it's a point and click btw and it's on pc. Hopefully someone will know it.

That's "Crayon Physics", I guess.

Looking for the name of a game I only played a couple times around the year 2000. It is a strategy game with territories, similar to Lord of the realms, but you can choose a leader that grants special powers, such as a necromancer that allows you to build an undead army or other magical powers depending on who is chosen.

Forgot to add, this is in the PC.

Yeah! That's exactly the game I was looking for! Thank you very much!

I used to play this game 10 years ago, so I would expect it's from the late 90's or the early 2000's .
basically the game is about 2 men or monsters one of them is green and the other is light blue , its played as a single player or split screen multiplayer, you walk on a 2d scale and there are dogs walking on the ground above you , to eliminate the enemies you have to hit the ground with your head which they are walking on i also remember one of the bosses in this game is a dinosaur waling very fast and hard to beat he was on an ice stage

Hi Everyone! Many years ago I played this game (pretty sure it was for PlayStation 1) where you and this team go to a moon base or some type of space base to investigate a distress call. The bases defense bots are all hostile and there is no sign of life. You and this team go to different areas to investigate and you are attacked by some type of alien monster and it runs off after a brief encounter.

I remember after that you report to your team asking them if they detected anything, one unit hes says "piece of cake, piece of cake. this sector is quiet and clear" something like that and the game just got spooky and I was to scared to see what happens, and lost the disc and have been searching here and there ever since. thanks!

I have been trying differently worded searches for hours trying to find a game I played as a kid with absolutely no luck whatsoever. All I remember about it, is that there was some connection between the rainbow and the theme of the game because you chose different colors to take you to different places to play games. The main area of the game starts out black and white but there are different color choices you can make to play the games. There was red that may have been a dragon, a yellow sun, blue water, I'm not sure what orange green and purple were. But in one of the games you had to match different colored cases. At the end of the game after you earned each color the world turned back to color. I need help this is driving me completely insane. And I was a 90s kid, born in '92 if that helps any.

hi there! during the year 2000 onward during my college time. my friend send me a game which you play as the manager of the old stripper house which you have to upgrade and clean the place back to the brand new house(please noticed that we are living in a remote area which any specific game is hard to play without online and required to be an offline game). it contain hiring strippers (which there is no porn here, mind you!) for the routine dance and cleaning total 9 lots (for the ppl masturbating inside per show) and handling the schedule of the list of girls dancing hours. there is an upgrade in the house for the special night mode , the drinking bar and the clothes for the stripper when it's due to breakdown.

there was gangster outside the district to pay for protection against other stripper house a.i acting as the competition and also can be used to sabotage the competitors as well. there is also list of building lots for purchasing as a estate money which can be sabotaged by the same gangster to cut down the value of the the specific building.

at the district there is a police station which can be bribe for reducing the disturbance during the sabotage and a dock nearby which have lots of sailor that seems to be the main customer for the shop. there was a lady who can be paid to lure the sailors to the shop with some money and later at night the dock have a illegal betting center which provide some money to gain from gambling on which frogs reached the finish line. after midnight there is a smuggling center which used a lot of money to smuggle from cigarettes to painting which have some percentage of risk to fail but the reward for the success is tremendous.

after you have reach a certain popularity among the district, they will invite you to a boxing center acting as the gentlemen club which also provide a boxing competition among the competitors.

there is also a brewing factory nearby which can be purchased and have to be manage around the for making it back to successful and provide some cash monthly.

there is also a side quest aside maintaining your strip house which is to try to become mayor of the district by spending the money after all those successful business to the specific politic (which is the queen of the stripper) and get her to your side.

the game is set in a old 3d map when looking at the district but remain 2d when looking for any purchasement (the drawing of the sexy lady during any purchasing is still 2d). the entire game is not about the porn but the management of the strippers house and the district only. if you are in debt by the following month , you lose the game.

that is the only detail i can remember from the game itself(though in vague memory , i remembered the game name is started with pauline or maybe not) i hope anyone can just tell me the name of the game and i am grateful as i wanted to return the favor for the the game nostalgia (will find if the game is still around so i can purchase it as a memento). thanks for reading and old guys request.

Hello, i'm trying to find a PS1 game. It's a 3D game and the big clue is: When the boss is coming from the sky u will hear sounds like "One one" The player is a man. the enemies looks like cockroaches and the flying one looks like DragonFly. I can't remember anything again. I was played it when i was 4 years old. The weapon maybe sword or a gun (i'm not sure). And the BOSS looks like spider, and... i forgot.

Pleasee... someone help me to find out that game :) :) :)

There was this game i remember playing wich i dont really know much but i remember it was about adventure, a 2D really crappy cubic graphics, pc game, not really sure but i think it was browser game, it was a man on some mountain enviromemt and i had to walk right or left, sometimes id fall in pits and die but the game was all really chill and i think it had snow. This is one of my childhood games if someone can manage to find it for me i would be really happy to play it again.
I just found this forum and if i end up not coming here again, my discors is Nero#2936 if someone remembers the name of the game
Thank you

So I have this game I loved to play a couple years ago- I remember it was a side scroller, and you had a bunch of units you could place then control seperate ones to go.. Well, I forget what the goal was. I remember one was set in a jungle-y area, and then the last one that I saw (Possibly still the last one, unless they made more) was space/sci-fi. Also, I remember specifically being able to name each of my units. oh, and the level select was like a black screen with green options as if you were on some like spy computer and there was a short "Briefing" Before each level (Telling you what the level was and what the goal was. I think the space one was the sixth?
Please, i'd really love to play this game again. Such a joy. Oh, almost forget to mention: It's a pc browser based game. Unless that was already obvious.
