OK so I played this game alot as a kid and I've been looking for it all over the internet for the past few years with no success, but maybe I'll get lucky here :D
Sadly, I don't remember much. I'm pretty sure it was a PC horror game, a third person shooter with a male protagonist and the enemies were vampires or demons or zombies (or maybe even humans), I'm not sure about this, I just know they were human-sized and the player killed them with a gun. The thing I remember the most was a cutscene at the beginning of the game, which was in a church and I think it was a wedding (not sure, might have been something else) with the protagonist in it. It was in 3D and the graphics weren't bad, so I don't think it was made before 2000, but it definitely wasn't after 2010, so somewhere inbetween that. Also if I remember correctly, most of the game happened somewhere underground or in a building, I remember going through halls and doors and rarely outside. Also the loading screen was some kind of a huge mutated monster with tentacles or something, I think.. I remember nothing about the plot, since I'm not a native english speaker and the game was fully in english which I didn't understand back then.

If someone knows, please let me know, I'm dying to find it :<

Its a PC game. Its not new. Its a first person shooting game. You are with 4 soldiers i thing and you shoot other soldiers. I remember that the 6th mission was on snow. The last mission you had to bring down a helicopter. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

It's a complete shot in the dark but... maybe one of the Delta Force games?

I dont think its delta force. But its similar gameplay. I was playing this game in 2012 and I am looking for it since then.

Hi, theres this game I used to play in school when I was little but I cant remember name of. I did find the game last year and promised my self not to forget it but I forgot and now I'm wondering what it is again. Heres somethings I can remember.

1. At the start you choose from a boy, girl or alien to play with (I always choose alien)
2. There were a few different planets you could play on as levels. You would lock one in but to get to it you would have to defeat asteroids in your way.
3. The planets had squares all along the ground. So if you pressed down, left, right or up you would move to the next square.
4. One planet was hot and had a volcanoe in the middle and would shoot larva and warning signs would come onto some squares stating larvas going to fall there.
5. Another planet I remember was cold and had not a volcano but something else in the middle to shoot out frozen stuff and warning sign would appear like the other planet.
6. For every planet you would start one end and try to get to the other.
7. In the end you would complete these differnet planets and be standing on a podium with the character you choose and receive a medal.

I hope someone can remember what game this was! Please respond! (It was around 5 years ago I played it)

I can't remember the name of two games and can't find them on google...

1 - A PC game with early 90's graphics, a RPG real time top-down view. Multiplayer on the same PC. There were several classes, and each one had a specific abilitie. I can remember the Druid class had the abilitie to create trees... and that's it. I played as a shareware.

2 - A turn-based strategy PC game, top-down view too, with mid 90's graphics. You control a team of gargoyles in the game, and you change them to some classes with different stats and abilities.

Here's one that has been bugging me for a while.

It's a first person fantasy game from the mid to late 90s.
You play as a kid/teen, and in the beginning you're in a village.
Your father is a character, and at one point he gives you a knife.
If you attack and kill your father, the whole world changes and becomes demonic (or something?).
Also outside the village there's some sort of stone pillar that makes a weird moaning sound that I remember used to freak me out as a kid.

Anybody have any ideas?

This is driving me nuts.

Trying to find a game that probably game out in the mid-late 90s. Was first person and had elements of shooting and point to click. I remember it revolved on dragons/dragon riders in some capacity, and one of the first "puzzle" had you either chose to kill a dog-monster thing who was blocking a path or give him a bone. Seem to remember carrying a dragon egg at one point too.

If anyone can help I'd be thrilled. Think we got this for like 2.99 at Costco circa 1997, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was lost to the ages.

Thanks!

Dragon Lore - The Legend Begins (1994)

Thanks! Turns out this was it.

God, the stone pillar thing is just as freaky as I remember: https://youtu.be/VrF0-MegbHQ?t=748

Hey all! This may be a shot in the dark and -- above all else -- pretty vague.

There's an arcade compilation I'm looking for that I believe was between the Win95/Win98 era. It included some really trippy version of Asteroids that screen wrapped, had a bunch of after-image effects and crazy-looking explosions (and also some hilarious version of Bomberman). If I'm remembering correctly, the compilation also included a Demo of Xenophage: Alien Bloodsport. If anyone can help me out, that'd be fantastic!

Background: I'm trying to help a friend find a game he's not even sure it's real hahaha he said it was around the early 90s and that he never beat it. Also, it had a mysterious vibe.

System: DOS

Year: Around the early 90s

Perspective: Completely 2D, without the sense of perspective.

Art style: Very pixelated, with solid colors.

Environment: It looks like the focus of the game was mainly the environment, like if the character was just a detail and didn't occupy much space on-screen. There was someone (an NPC?) that transformed into a bird (maybe a crow). Also, the game had dialogs in text boxes. The only thing about the scenery that he remembers is some place with a church, or church-like windows, like those big glass panes.

Mood: It had a dark mood.

Genre: It looks like some fantasy adventure, possibly medieval.

Gameplay: The interaction was either by clicking or by moving the character with the arrow keys. When switching scenarios (or levels?) there seemed to be some sort of animation or transition.

Maybe it was "LOOM" (1990).

WOOOAH, THANKS A LOT!!!
You got it right first try!
You're awesome, thanks again!

I've been trying to find this game for a while now, it's a bit fuzzy, but I hope this community can help me!

System: Windows

Year: Somewhere between 2005 and 2012 (don't know if it's still active)

Perspective: Switches between platform and 3d (top view)

Art style: smooth, yet colourful.

Environment: Differs per characterlevel, the beginning is a bit of a open wood/farm environment, then moves to the beach. (Haven't played it beyond).

Mood: It had a happy mood

Genre: It is a fantasy adventure, with basically everything being played online with the community.

Gameplay: The interaction was keyboard based (the way i remember it), but i thing you could also use your mouse. Your character gained exp by defeating monsters (the first monsters you'd encounter were wood logs and sheep). Every level was basically a mission, defeat the monsters and defeat the boss. The first bosses were some sort of wolves. There was some story behind it with a professor turning them, but i can't remember this clearly.

I hope you can help me!

Hello everyone, well it's a long shot but will try.
A game where a small yellow bird throwing arrows while walking through labyrinth..

Hi guys! I've been struggling to remember the name of this game for weeks now. I played it 10-ish years ago on my old computer. So, the game was 2D, you are the small human with some sort of harpoon and your objective is to shoot frogs that bounce off the screen. Whenever you would shoot a big frog, it would split into 2 smaller ones. Very similar to Bubble Trouble. If anyone knows the name, plz tell me. You wouldn't believe how grateful I would be. :D

That is probably Granny's Garden.

Hey, thanks for reply, but sadly, it's not Granny's garden :/. Still, thanks for help!

Hey I'm looking for a specific game. I once saw a youtuber play the game (He was black, if this helps anyone :P). The game is horror/mystery first person. During the whole gameplay the thing I remember most is a mysterious male voice. Anyway.. The game first takes place in a house where there is being held a party. The MC probably ingests too much of the good stuff and falls asleep. This is all just the intro. The gameplay begins the day after. The next day the MC is all alone, and suddenly this weird voice starts talking to the MC. I think the man behind the voice blames the MC for something (Perhaps his daughters - the host of the party - death). The voice guides the MC through the room with evil intend.
The game is divided into chapters. Each chapter has requirements to complete before you can move onto the next chapter, which is done by teleporting to a completely different location. It is probably possible to pick up items and/or hold the cursor over things to reveal their purpose.
Chapter one takes place in the house (where the party was held) and is about finding a key within a given time to unlock a door or stop something from happening. If I am not mistaken chapter two is about leaving a room before all the light disappears. I'm not certain where the next chapters occur however I remember
walking around near a church.
Hope this is enough information :).

Arcade game, late 80's? Because if so, pretty sure that's The NewZealand Story.

I played a 2d pc cartoony game several years ago where you are a guy that runs around on the screen. The screen doesn't move/sidescroll, but you have to get a key and then get to the door to advance to the next level. You have the ability to dig a hole to your right or left. There are bad guys that walk around the screen and I think they eat you if they get to you. They can fall into the holes you dig and then you can walk over them. But you can fall into the holes you dig too. This game could be 2 player simultaneous coop play.

hi guys new here, there a two games I can't remember they where on the ps1, there was a fighting game where the fighters stay in midair and you can send projectile attacks and some fighter can freeze time, you fight inside a sphere or some kind of small arena which you float inside, perhaps the game title has the word time in it not sure. the second game was a space genre type it's first person and your on a space ship that due to explode you have to figure how to save the ship, you interact with others on the ship depending on how you treat them saving the ship can be more easy or harder it's multiple choice types of decisions.

Come to think of it, I've been trying to remember a few games from my childhood too. There's this one, though...in that one, you took care of a young dinosaur (or a few of them...?) that looked a bit like a baby 🦖, but it wore shoes. In that game, you could explore a semi-open world, but you had to remember to drink water and hunt enough 🦎s, or your dinosaur would die, and you'd have to start over again. If someone could track down this game, my brother and I would be grateful! Thanks!

Ooh, I can't remember the game's name, but you were an archer, and the frogs were floating around In a forest, right? I thought it was 3D, though...

Depending on how old this game is, it could be The Seventh Guest or Phantasmagoria,

If it's newer than those two, it could be a mod for....um...Crysis? I think it was...called "Only If" ?

Pretty sure this is either Lode Runner: The Legend Returns, or its (kinda) sequel, Lode Runner Online: The Mad Monks' Revenge.

Hi all, I'm looking for a PC (possibly demo) game called Super Snakes. It is not your typical Snake/Python game where the snake grows as it eats the fruit/food and you have to not run into yourself or the walls. In Super Snakes you're a little yellow-green bulldozer(controlled by the arrow keys) that pushes blue blocks between gray walls in order to protect itself from ten magenta-ish snakes. You only beat a level after you've killed all ten snakes, which is done by pushing a block into snakes' heads (if you push a block through any other part of their bodies it makes them shorter). Their are 30 levels, if I remember correctly.
I've searched Google extensively but have come up empty-handed time and time again. This was a game on a CD for Windows 98 (possibly XP, but I doubt it) that my parents owned in the early 2000s (it disappeared sometime before 2007) with folders and folders of games on it. If anyone recalls playing this game and/or can steer me in the right direction to find it, I'd much appreciate it.

Hey,

when I was younger (late 90s - early 2000s) I used to play games on my old Windows computer like Commander Keen and Jill of the Jungle. There was this other game: the main character was some sort of man wearing a hat and an overall. his weapon looked like a drill and the game took place in some sort of very industrial looking place (like some sort of old factory or something). You had to defeat several small creatures I think one of them looked a bit like a bunny. you could defeat them with your weapon and it looked like you drilled through them and when you did sparks came off. at some point in the game you had to look for this place where there was this big screen, it looked like some sort of computer with a lot of wires attached to it.

Anyone know this game?

Hey Causa22.
Yea it is "Only If". Thank you very much for your help :)

I have these really vague memories of this game i've been trying to remember & find out.

What i remember is:

- Was most likely released late 90-early 2000
- Setting is dark cyperpunkish scifi.
- Camera angle was mostly birds eye but changed in some interiors.
- There were 2 characters to choose from, male who wore a dark leather jacket and black haired female.
- Terrain was most likely 2d and charters were low poly 3d models.
- If i remember correctly the starting area was some kind of a crater, the landscape was greyish & dark.
- There was this city hub near by which had different factions fighting for power.
- One of the "evil" factions main base(?) was made out of skull/bone & blood?
- There was also this futuristic mall where you could by weaponry etc.
- If memory servers you could join these factions and do missions for them.

Edit: It was on PC

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!

That would be Threads of Fate.

So I'm looking for a game I played when I was younger. Not entirely sure when I played it but lets say 2008-2012(yeah sorry). The gameplay is almost identical to that of Return to Dark Castle, and even the title screen looked very similar. However, Return to Dark Castle had a status bar at the bottom of your screen displaying health, items etc. The game I am looking for did not Another key piece of information is that the title background music(I think) was Bach's Toccato & Fugue, the Dracula theme. Hopefully one of you could find this game for me, I searched for a solid 9 hours but found nothing. :)
