hello all. I'm looking for a old dos game from the early nineties or late eighties. it was a 2d platoform game in which you could switch between 3 robots, one was a robot dragon, one was a robot on tracks (johnny nr5 like) and one was more a human robot. I remember it being a very hard game. And altough it was 2d platform it was more puzzles then action/shooting. each robot had his own specialties that you needed to advance to the next screen. any help is welcome.

I remember it was very similar to audiosurf in the way it worked/looked. No music import, just a puzzle racer where you controlled a ball and tried to get to the end of a generated track of obstacles. Black/gold/red-ish look, REAL simple principle, i think it was around the year 2005, single player. Users could try to beat the speed high score in which you beat each track, they get more and more complicated. I am pretty sure the ball was controlled with the mouse. It's a 3D game.

This is a long-shot, I will probably get laughed at (and I should lol).

So my friend was asking me if I knew about any games that her daughter may like. I remembered playing room/home design type game on PC a few years back (it was probably released between 2005-2012 I'd say).

The jist of the game was you had to arrange furniture on squares on the floor. I think you had to coordinate colours or something. You moved from room to room, and client to client. It was very cartoon-ish, and pretty girly. I probably would have downloaded it from a site like iwin, or big fish games.. something like that. I really want to say the word "design" was in the title, but I could be way off. I do remember the lady. Older with grey hair (maybe) and red winged glasses. I don't even care about the games anymore... it's just driving me nuts that I can't remember what it is, or find traces of it ANYWHERE!!!!!!

Thanks for your time! :)

Hey, nothing wrong with a little casual game to mix things up.

You're looking for "Eye for Design" (2008).

Hi. Have a game i cant remember the name of. That would bring some childhood memories back to life.
We used to play it hotseat at a friend sometimes.

It was on a CD. played in windows 98 or xp i think

It was a boardlike game. U raced in Europe and tried to come first to different cities. U had specialcards or something that could sabotage for other players, or boost ur move. Have some memories of always computer controlled player , "an evil man" in a balloon and a tophat that cheated and stuffs. Cant really descibe it better.

This is "Dr. Drago's Madcap Chase"(1995).

When I was a kid, I used to play a mech based game( not sure ps1 or ps2), the mech is kind of similar to xenogear or gundam kind of design, and I remember the final boss which is a white mech and he had a skill that cause big slash, and the fight occur at the space. The other thing I remember about the fame was one of the battle occur at some rocky place where u get a new character (the play style similar to Super Robot Wars) and when the new character enter battle scene, his green mech(I think) bend down a little and stabilise his mech leg by widen it, then it shoot a big long laser power, that?s all I remember, hope u guys could help me up with some suggestion. Thank you and much appreciate for any suggestion and forgive me for my poor English level

Was it Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner?

Okay this has been bugging me for years, there was a game I played that I'm almost positive it was for PS1, it's so cloudy that I don't remember any of the actual gameplay, but I remember the character select had an option between both a male and female, the male on the left and the female on the right, and after you chose one or the other, your character would turn around and run into the door or wall (or possibly gravestone?) or whatever it was behind you, and then your game would start. The female had some sort of long staff weapon and I feel like it may have been a zombie/mutant fighting game although I could be very wrong.

Are you sure it was the woman who had the staff? 'Cause if the man had the staff and the woman had a sword, you'd be describing Nightmare Creatures. =)

Nope, I think the graphics were a bit better.

May be its Call of Cthulhu. Bcos the huge mutated tentacles monster is the main boss of the game.

Looks similar, but it's not it. The game I'm looking for was thirdperson and it had a cutscene in a church (this is important). I'm seriously losing hope of finding it :D

Could it have been Parasite Eve?

Hello there, help me find a game!
It was a 2D side camera game, with an "open world" (level where you needed to explore), where you needed to kill zombies/bandits/smth. Full of puzzles, quests, first location was a town with skyscrapers and church with, as I remember, good underground ways system where you started the game.
You could visit almost any place in this town, and at some point you walked to a desert camp with people, where they gave you some kind of quest (I stopped playing at this point because I was stuck)

I'm out of ideas, nobody of my friends remember this game :S Thank you!

Hi, this one is very vague sorry. So I remember playing a game on Windows that had either a fantasy or medieval theme. As you approached a certain building (a palace or throne room, or something like that) a guard would tell you to put away your weapon. If I remember correctly if you walked past with your weapon drawn the guard would attack you. I played this before 2005. I'm not sure but it may have had an inventory that looked similar to Diablo 2's but that may just have been because I played that around the same time.I think the game had either a 3rd person or 1st person view, not isometric. Don't have my hopes up that anyone knows what this is as I was young at the time and may have imagined this all. Thanks.

OKAY. I've been looking for this game for maybe like 4 years and I can't seem to find it. It had this cute little guy who almost looked like Gumby but I don't think he had legs. He is was a very cartoony point and click game roughly in the early 2000's on PC. He was in a haunted house and you had to find items I guess. I played this when I was maybe 4 or 5 and I'm 18 now if that helps. Only part I remember was the kitchen were there was a set of stairs on the right, a sink in the back, and I think like a vent that transported him to different parts of the house on the right of the stairs. It wasn't scary and it looked more kiddy with no blood really but it may of had a good little kid scare here and there though. Pleaseeeee help me find this. I always think I get close to finding it and then it's not the right game..

Hey don't know if this has been guessed yet but I vaguely remember this game I used to play on GameTap in the mid to lat 2000's
-It was for sure a 2D platformer
-I think the main character was a boy
-There were bosses in it
-Had 8bit-ish graphics but they looked good(at least that's how I remember)
-I can sort of remember having to restart the whole game when you died or something similar
-I vaguely remember the final boss being two flying vampire things
-I can't remember how you killed enemies but it might be by shooting
-I feel like the graphics were similar to Kirby in the way the bosses and environment was done
-Had very good music(again that's how I remember it)
Sorry for my bad memory
Please help me find this it has been killing me for months

Since you mention the cut-scene in church, I've only seen one game like it and it is "Blood"

Guys, I have been trying to remember the name of the game for the longest time, but I can't. I remember there was a rectangular box and you had to control it without it falling off the borders & at the end, it had to fall through a quadratic hole. So you had to rotate the box the whole way so that at the end it will fall inside the whole. :D omg I am so bad at explaining, hopefully, you can help me out! ;)

Its Bloxorz, a flash game.

Rodrigo Tejera:
help please does any of you remember a nes game that you control a ship and you can choose betewn wing/guns 1 was 2 black balls that rotate around you and you. and can duck under the structures is a topdown view. thanx

I think that's Star Soldier.

Its an 8-bit game called B-Wings (the gun has two black balls rotating it, i think its called Hammer weapon)

I guess its Ninja Warrior 8-bit game. You get to select 1 out of 3 characters.

Hello, everyone!! I have been searching for the name of this game for years and finally gave in and decided to ask some experts rather than relying on my own Google prowess (since it seems to not work after all).

What I can remember of the game is this:

-Browser based/Flash game, has its own website ala www.nameofgame.com
-First-person Adventure/Point and Click/Escape game
-When typing in the URL the first image is a black screen and then a tropical island/ocean which, once you click, takes you to the first screen of the game
-Photo-realistic images/graphics
-Scenes included: tropical island/beach, dune area with lighthouse, jungle area with Aztec/Inca/Mayan-esque temple, interior of said temple, dock view looking down the dock on the ultra blue ocean at a tiki type hut (brown grass-thatched roof)
-Objective, from what I can remember, was to escape the island, although I do not remember much of a story line, only remember having to solve puzzles. Two distinct memories are: being inside the temple and having to place gems somewhere/rotating portions of the wall to get out of the temple into the next scene and being on the dock and finding out there was an area on the screen to the left that if clicked took me to a zoomed in view of one of the posts (as if I had turned to the left) on the dock that held a clue for the next puzzle
-Played sometime between 2001-2006
-May have required payment to play full game after completing a few puzzles/scenes, although do not quote me on this as I may have just gotten bored at the time and stopped playing
-Another thing on which not to quote me, but I could swear that the name of it had the word "quest," the name of some jewel or gem, OR some variation of the word "paradise" in it
-I had just finished Mystery of Time and Space at the time and MOTAS was my introduction into the point and click/escape genre; I was hooked, and I believe I may have found out about this game through the MOTAS guestbook or a MOTAS forum/blog

Throughout my searches I have come across many similar games that are not the one for which I am looking, so I can tell you it is none of the following: Myst (or any sequel or variation thereof, although the game is incredibly Myst-like, and is most likely a copycat/clone that came out at exactly the same time as Riven or one of the other sequels), Machinarium, Samorost, The Longest Journey, Syberia, any of the Monkey Islands or Mysterious Islands, Lost City, Labyrinth of Time, 7th Guest/11th Hour, Journeyman, Witness, Dream, any of the Zorks, Atlantic, Miasmata, Amnesia, Gray Matter, The Secret of Grisly Manor, Nibiru, Gemini Rue, Paradise, The Dig, Neverhood.

Here's hoping I can finally lay 10+ years of searching to rest!

Hey all ^^
So, I've been trying to find a game, i remember it being a 3D rpg for pc, it looked like a 2000 game, very ps1 kind of graphics...
you could make your own character, you'd start off on a grassy kind of mountain, walking around some you'd find a girl, on a kind of tent and stuff, there was a key and a closed section, then getting there you'd have to kill some weird spiders.. it felt like medieval times and such, the game looks really like Gothic and wizardry 8

Hi guys,

This game has been on my mind forever, it is one of my fondest memories from childhood, playing it on the original Game Boy.
It is a horizontal space shooter game, but the caveat is that you can choose which planet (stage) you're going to go to next. That's basically all i can remember, but i think the "choose your next planet" part should narrow it down somewhat.

Thank you in advance guys :)

edit: Wow, can't believe I actually found it myself :))) I went on here http://nintendo.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_Game_Boy_games#'90 and thought i'd give it another go thinking i was somewhat sure it started with V.

How right I was :D The game is Volley Fire

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptBhXLoZB8c

Turns out it's not horizontal after all :D

Hi guys, I'm looking for a game that I played when I was young. It was a side-scrolling CD game on PC platform in the year of 2000s may be, actually I don't know about the release date of it. I've tried my best to remember most of the game details but I cant remember the name of it.

Although the game is side-scrolling game, it looks like 2.5D. The background is 2D picture but your character and the enemies are 3D image. It is a kind of adventure game, and you have a health bar and mana bar on the top left hand corner.
In the game you can choose 3 types of character, a young man with sword, a young girl with staff and a man using two-handed axe.
I remember some of the default button which are "Z" and "X", "Z" is using a light attack and "X" is a heavy attack.

There are several types of magic you can use, fire , ice, lightning and recovery.
Each type of magic divided into 5 levels, I only remember fire and ice.
Fire L1: Single fire ball drop on a single enemy (Auto targeting to nearby enemy)
Fire L2: Fire burning on the left side of right side (depends on character facing direction)
Fire L3: Lava blast at all enemies position
Fire L4: Large explosion (Area of effect)
Fire L5: Fire from the fire phoenix (Area of effect)
Ice L1: Ice Spikes appear at a single enemy's postion (Auto targeting to nearby enemy)
Ice L2: Ice Spikes appear at all enemies' position
Ice L3: Ice wall created on the left side of right side (depends on character facing direction)
Ice L4: Ice Storm (Area of effect)
Ice L5: Ice Age (Area of effect)

And here are the stage and the boss that I try my best to remember.
Stage 1 - Forest, boss: rock golem
Stage 2 - Floor 1
Stage 3 - Below 1, boss: ice drake
Stage 4 - Below 2, boss: 2 ghost
Stage 5 - Below 3, boss: skeleton mage(necromancer)
^And this boss I think is a main enemy of the game because my character need to talk to him before battle.
Stage 6 - Floor 2, boss: a flying, upper body, large skeleton with both scythe-shaded hand(hand bone)
Stage 7 - Floor 3, boss: fire drake
Stage 8 - Below 4

One more thing there are 5 different BGM in the game. Each of them is used for Stage1-5 respectively. And Stage 6 use the first BGM and so on.

I just only remember the stage name and the last stage that I reached is 8.
Please help me with this, it is a memory for me and I try my best to remember the details of it.

Ok so I have been trying to hunt this game down for ages now, so maybe someone knows it.

The game was a sidescroller, 16 bit if I am not mistaken. You played a fox or a lynx in clothing and you had a ball or ball creature as a weapon. I remember that somewhere in the game there was an indiana jones type character that stopped a pyramide from smashing you by stopping it. Only to be crushed once you managed to get out.

Beyond that, I have nothing more. Sorry guys.

EDIT:

HOLY S I found it by randomly clicking a link. It was Ardy Lightfoot!

Hello guys!
I have thinking a game. The game was on PC and I played it like 2005 or 2006. In the beginning you could choose from different classes like priest which did more dmg to undead or mage which could do for example different types of magic walls to block enemy attacks. In the game you had 3 characters and they moved in the queue. You moved party with your mouse. The game also had different maps and every map had boss. First boss was like a mage top of the big mountain or something like that.
Sorry for the unclear description.

Hope someone will know the game!

EDIT: the game was 2d

I don't know the time but it's a top down turn based mech game on the commodore 64 It had multiplayer and a hexagonal board/land

Hello. I am looking for a old PC game, Motocross/Bike stunts through fire rings, ramps and so on. (1992-1999) i think maybe 1996?. Things i also remember: American flag on bike/rider. I hope this is enough info to get the name of the old game. Please heeeelp :)

EDIT: LOL Just found it after 5 years searching. the game is "Evel Knievel Interactive Stunt Game" :D

i really need this game name

all what i remember is that you play with a character and you could collect treasures, kill people and take the money and any other thing with them and could trade these things and you could buy weapons, portions, armors and other things

Someone please help me out here this is a hard one! I played it on the pc when I was pretty young. I think its a leapfrog game but I could be wrong. But basically there is a merrygoround horse and its broken and in order to put it back together you have to go around and solve different things to find its pieces all the characters in it are animals there is one bit with like a squirrel parade I think I loved the game when I was young and I really want to find this game for nostalgic reasons. Does anyone know what I am talking about?

Hello.
I'm lookging for a game I used to play when I was a child. The character was a pikachu lookalike (it's not pokemon D: ). It had more levels and every like 5 level had a different theme. Any help would be appreciated.

I remember playing a point and click adventure game with my old man. Details are incredibly hazy but I remember it being a female protagonist wearing a black bodysuit? I also remember a part of the game that takes place in a castle, you used a crossbow to take out a guard, then using the same crossbow, attaching a rope and grappling hook. Scaling a tower and trying to open a door that had a puzzle with solar system symbols.

There is a game that I played a long time ago I cant remember the name but the character is a woman and she can turn into a monster at will she also has 2 friends a woman that has Blue skin and a old man that wears armor its also on the ps2 or ps1 I think it starts with a S or a Q I could be wrong but I cant remember it and I really want to play it again so if someone could help me that would be great!!

Hello.

Platform: PS3
Genre:Fantasy
Year: 2005-2009

I remember playing this game a few times at my buddies house, it was a combat game that featured tall amazonian archers or something, and it was split screen and the one map i remember was like a space zero gravity arena indoors, and we jumped around shooting at each other and there were other weapons and power ups placed around the entire map. Obviously that wasnt the only map but thats the one I remember the most. Ive tried looking for the name of this for a while, please help!

DerpyRageOfDoom:
I don't know the time but it's a top down turn based mech game on the commodore 64 It had multiplayer and a hexagonal board/land

Are you sure it was a hex grid? I could only find BattleTech: The Crescent Hawk's Inception for C64, and it isn't hex-based. Meanwhile the only early, hex-based, mech games I found were Vasteel and it's sequel for the TurboGrafx CD, and Lightning Vaccus: The Knight of Iron for various Japanese computers.
