Also.. Curse (but mostly bless) you efficient and good, dedicated, old game masters.
(I don't want to name names. You know who you are!)
I finally had a really obscure game that I knew about but you beat me to it.
I didn't think anyone else knew about Solar Winds..Or Galapagos..or ..heh!

Oh man, this thread is amazing! I have some of these 'can't remember the name of this game' problems myself... but this one is the one that drives me craziest. It's about collecting aliens from different planets.

System: PC in the age of floppy disc games OR either Atari or ColecoVision (not completely sure where I was playing this one, I kind of thought I was playing it on the TV and it was a cartridge, but I could be totally wrong. The lists I find online for titles at least directly from those two consoles' makers- which were the consoles my family owned around that time period- don't show anything that looks like this game from what I can tell, so probably PC? I'm totally at a loss, help!)

Year: Was playing this in the late 1980s to early 90s. I am not sure if that's when it came out.

Gameplay: Your screen is always the control room/cockpit of your spaceship, with a viewscreen either showing space, or the alien planet that you have landed on. You go around to different worlds and discover different creatures you can see on your view screen some look friendly and others look mean, and you pick up specimens of these creatures and the number of creatures you have in your ship goes up (it's just a number on one of your panels) but if you pick up the wrong ones I guess it eats all the other ones and you go back to zero. I never figured out what the point of this game was or how to complete it but now that I'm an adult and not a wee child I'd like to find it and figure out what the point was and how you progress/'win'. Some of the creatures were interesting looking. They moved slightly on the screen so you could tell what was a living creature and what was just part of the planet backdrop.

Anyone have any clue what I'm talking about?

Hmm... Sadly no, I think this game was much simpler than Starflight. I don't remember you being able to do much else besides travel to different planets and collect different aliens. The aliens you collected were a little more cartoon-looking than the look of what I'm seeing for screenshots from Starflight, and there were no other races to interact with as far as I could tell. Very simple, always the same one screen sort of game. You never saw anything different except through the view screen, if I recall correctly. Then again, as I said I was too young to figure out how to play it properly though I did try. But the graphics of Starflight definitely look a bit better and like they're trying to be slightly more realistic than the game I'm looking for. For creature styles of the aliens, think more "Spore," less "Alien". Some were quite imaginative, but they weren't trying to look realistic even for the graphics of the time.

I've been looking for this game forever. It's an old PC point and click game where you were a car trying to save your car friend from being scrapped by some evil tow truck (I think it was a tow truck). You had to find all the supplies to save him through mini-games, like get spark plugs from a haunted mansion, get gas from a celebrity car by finishing a maze in her dressing room, and race a car for something else I can't recall. Once you beat the game, I remember sometimes in the outro the evil car would say "That's all folks!" or other little quips. I must've been super young, so it might have come out in the early 2000s but I could be wrong.

Boosting after a year of no response. Still trying to find this game.

Please help me...

Well, I definitely never played this game so I probably can't be much help... but... I dunno, the only thing I've seen that I can think would be like it because games that go back that far that having cars-as-people like the Disney Cars movies are the Wheely games. But I can't find a single one out of the 8 games that has the plot you mention and they seem to be more to be platformer puzzle solving than mini racing games? Anyway, you could search YouTube for Wheely and take a look at the start of one of the walkthroughs and see if that looks anything like it? And if not, it might help to add what about that was NOT like what you're looking for? Might help me narrow. I've been looking for a couple games for myself on every site I can think of and I can keep an eye out for something that looks like this too, but the more details the better.

It reminds me of the Putt putt series.. but none have that plot tho, its like ur telling all the games in one

Spike Van Der Molen:
Hi,

I'm searching a DOS game, point and click styled based in space I think. I remember you started in a jail but I didnt got really far. I do remember you had to breack ur cell light and grab a piece of wire from the wall, then u laid the broken glass in the sunlight wich started burning and a guard comming in, then u chocked the guard with the wire. After that I can't remember me much except for a closed door wich I couldn't open back then (I was fairly young) I do believe that jail was on a other planet (probably mars)

Hope someone can help me out here, I been searching for years for this game :)

Another game I'm searching was a Hearthlight clone, but I remember it being blue gems that u had to collect instead of hearts, and it had an level editor..

Bump.. Srry I just want to find the game

Neither of these sound like something I've played darnit, but has anyone suggested anything so far? I can't remember from when I sped-read this thread, to see if anyone had looked for, or found, the game that I was looking for. The DOS point and click adventure game could be Fade to Black? But I haven't played Fade to Black so I don't know I just know it takes place in space and begins in a prison.

Hello there seekers, I have an old game to find.
It is an rts with living mechs. Weird, right? You bred them and equipped with genetically mutated weapons. The weakest weapon was the hammer, which gave our bronze colored monster a pair of flailing hands. Without them, the monster would bite for minimum damage, which was a sad thing cause it took a long while to get them trained.
Another thing was a sort of beacon antlers or feelers that enhanced something like vision or map centering or some other obscure thing.

It was 13-18 years ago and I believe this was on PC. Everything was kind of dirt-bronze colored. This was some weird sci-fi - fantasy world. Not exactly a rocket spam game, everything took ages.

I vaguely remember that this game had something to do with genes, albeit it has very little in common with Genewars.
I played just a few first missions at a friends house who doesn't remember it at all.

Help.

Likewise, bump.
Perhaps someone heard of this rts.

Please, for the love of god, if anyone could help:

I remember it being a horror/suspense/escape kind of game, that you started on a manhole/sewer exit or something like that. Its a VERY old game, I remember by the graphics, I just don't know which platform. It was first person, you were in some kind of house. The starting point had kind of a medieval aspect of it, with like dungeon stones looking like a prison around that manhole. I remember a glimpse of a long shot in like a desert with someone walking or something like that, maybe you could take a look in a hole between the stones, and the thing I remember the most about the game is the books. There was a library or something, and I think I thought of that game as a kid as "the book game", I think the books played a huge part. Maybe you could examine them or something.

This is not much but I'm sure someone else here played it, because for me, in my country to be able to play that game at the time, probably it had some success, I'm guessing. I tried searching multiple times, "first person horror game" and a console, like Atari, Sega Saturn, etc. No success.

Anyone?

Hi everyone can you help me i can't remember the title of the game i've played on PS1.I only remember a small scene of the game.

Sorry for my english

It is ps1 game

Early 90's console childrens castle based game...HELP!

Please help me find out what this game was that I used to play at my childminders house as a kid. It must of been in the early 90's, and was based in a castle. I remember having to pick up chicken legs and other items for health, and there was a part where you jumped from barrel to barrel over some water. It wasn't a dark and gloomy setting (seem to remember it being quite colourful and light). It also may have been puzzle based. Also, I dont think it was linier and was more coming back and forth between multiple rooms/areas - some moving up and down through the castle (one room would be in the basement, then you could move up through rooms to be in a tower). Think it was in a medieval setting. Not sure of the console either but wasnt a PC game.

Updates:
- Was more of a children's game (colourful and light)
- Could of had a puzzle element
- Was 2D scroller
- Was console based as playing on a TV screen
- could move between different rooms i.e. would be in basement, then move to banquet hall, then be in tower, then be in area with barrels on water
some rooms you just couldnt progress through as hadnt solved something

im looking for a game its an rpg single player game its 2D and its pixel its for android and its were you can only attack left and right but you cant move left or right only attack. Also you can upgrade your equipment but you start off with nothing but a sword and you can go into a tower. also every 50 levels you can fight a dragon. So if anyone can help please do this has been bugging me for a few months

I dunno, the only thing I've seen that I can think would be like it because games that go back that far that having cars-as-people like the Disney Cars movies are the Wheely games.

I've been looking for a couple games for myself on every site I can think of and I can keep an eye out for something that looks like this too, but the more details the better.

I took a look and it's definitely not Wheely, sadly. To quote someone else, I'm also 99% sure it's not Putt Putt either. It was very similarly structured to Putt Putt though, but instead of using items as you went along, you went through mini-games to collect all the items for the final end scene. It's almost staggering how much it looks like Putt Putt in my memories though, but... my mom remembers the Putt Putt games and she said I never owned a single one of them, but she DOES remember me owning *this* game and even supervising me a few times when I played - but she can't remember the name either. It's like I'm living in a Mandela Effect right now where it was Putt Putt but absolutely NOT Putt Putt

Taking a year to think over my memories of it I can be much more clear about my explanation.

You were a car (not unlike Putt Putt) and your friend broke down and is about to get scrapped by a big burly tow truck. Your friend is taken to a scrap yard for the rest of the game until you collect all the items you need to fix him. The game consists of a hub world (either top down or side scrolling hub where you click the side of the screen to move to the next area). Each item you need is locked behind a minigame. Some of the items are as follows...

- This is *the most vivid scene I remember*: You needed a spark plug: to obtain this, you had to enter a haunted mansion and click on - i.e. collect - the scary faced sparkplugs as they jump up from different areas in the mansion to "scare" you (behind the bedframe, behind a dresser or mirror, right in front of you, etc)

- You needed an item (possibly gas) from a car celebrity at a theater. You would enter her dressing room to talk to her; I'm fairly certain she wore a boa scarf. To get the item for your friend, you had to go through a maze in her wardrobe, but to reach it you had to keep finding gas cans in the maze or you'd run out of gas.

- Another item was locked behind a one-on-one race, where the entire track was littered with obstacles to slow you down but not your opponent. The racer was also extremely haughty and rude to you, from what I recall. It may just be my child memories, but I remember this minigame being excruciatingly hard and I would always save it for last.

There had to be more items to collect, I'm sure of it, because the final scene had upwards of 6+ items. But these are the only three items I can remember.

The final scene was incredibly stressful. It was timed. In the scrapyard, you had to put your friend together with all the parts you collected as the tow truck encroached from the background. When you finally put him together, your friend and you would ride off happily on a road into the sunset, then the tow truck would pop up in a closing scene to say little quips that would vary each time you finished the game, like "Ebebepebebd That's all Folks!" or "And I would have gotten away with it too!" or "Next time I'll catch you!" things like that. My replay value rested solely in getting the "that's all folks" ending quip, I would play the game repeatedly just to hear him say that again.

It was so very close to Putt Putt in art style and world too, but I swear to god this game was not Putt Putt, it felt like some... crude rip off. The characters were raunchy and rude, the game was stressful, scary (in the haunted mansion), and sometimes unforgiving in its mechanics for a little kid's game. I've looked through every Putt Putt game just to make sure and nothing matches up to my memories save for some few coincidences like the Join the Race's race car guy.

PC game adventue-RPG like; I remember that the CD is Red. There are a group of kids in a house (1st floor: straight there is a kitchen; left side: there is a closed door, a bault, a coat rack and an electric switch box; right side: there is some stairs. 2nd floor: the bedrooms) and you have to search for items to achive goals/solve puzzles (like entering a room, etc), there is a closed lighthouse that you have to enter, there is a beach with a fisherman's house, there is a cave. The goal of the game (I think) is to go to a mistery island. I think there is a 2nd CD of the game, when you are already in the island.
I will appreciate any help. Thanks.
(Sorry, for bad english)

That sounds kind of like Oxenfree: http://store.steampowered.com/app/388880/

Is not that one. The one i'm searching for is older.

Holy shit, I've been looking for this game too for forever. Definitely point and click PC puzzle adventure game, heavily inventory based and I think I remember tesla coils or electricity involved somehow with the distant mystery island. I think the kids were your siblings? Or related in some way. The screen always displayed the whole room or outside area and your character would be superimposed on it and you would click around the area to move where you wanted to go. Any help finding this game would be super appreciated. It's not Myst or Oxenfree or anything.

Can someone please tell me the name of this PC RPG

-The game starts with a introscene where it talks about a tale of some warriors who were sent by a king to kill some monsters.But only one of them returned claiming the others had been killed by the monsters. Somehow this guy overthrew the king and started to rule the kingfom with an iron fist.My character was some university student in this kingdom assisted by a guardian angel. In the absence of my guarfian angel the guards took me in custody and sent me a prison out of nowhere.

-When I get to move my character I find myself in a room with an old prisoner sitten on a bed, a dish on the floor and a door out from the room.When my character asked the old prisoner where the others were, he would reply "Down below...", to which my character would say "Down below?..Oh I see, I understand old man."...

-On going outside, I see some guards at the prison gate, A giant red orb on a tree and a few prisoners standing by here and there...The game was 3D with a point and click for movement system.On moving near one of the prisoners, one could find another exit point that led to a scene with two or so cages with a man in one of them.On interacting with the man, he would reply saying, " Water Please..." Beside him was an interactable Poppy Plant.

-In this game you had to open a circular toolbox for everything from talking to casting spells and fighting. It was a demo game so I cant say anything more about it.

Please reply if you know the name of this game.Thank you.

The Fifth Disciple

Can you guys help me find an old mostly text-based rpg game?

it was an old browser game off of a site like miniclip or something and the main screen was like a castle that you could click on certain parts to go on a quest, or check inventory, etc. when you went on a quest and encountered a monster you would just see a picture of the monster and there would be a drop down menu for what you could do. I remember that the monster pictures looked more like concept art for a game, well drawn and slightly more realistic looking than some of the more cartoony style in a lot of flash games nowadays.

I'm sorry I don't remember too many details, the only other thing I remember is that there was a boss who is a necromancer I believe, and once you killed him he came back in a dragon-like form once or twice and continued to fight you. I just remember the artwork being really cool and it was a fun game so I'd love to find it again, thanks for the help!

I once played on a friend's computer a 2d pixel art game that had top view. The main character throws an arrow (or bolt) that you have to retrieve every time to shoot it again. In the beginning of the game there are many doors to choose from. I also remember that the first door enemy is a slime that splits in half each time you hit it. In order to defeat it you need to hit the slime part that has a heart inside. Does anyone remember the name of this game ?

This is an old game I remember playing on pc around 12-14 years ago.

Its a platform game where you are an old man in a dungeon killing zombies and monsters by throwing axes or shooting a bow. In the first map I remember you start underground and you go through acid type of liquid in some ares and the most specific thing i remember is when you face a monster made of metal that you cant kill but damaging it makes it turn direction. I think the name of the game ends with a capital X.

I've been trying to figure out the name of this game for a couple of years now and if anyone knows which one im talking about that'd be great!

I remember playing this old Playstation game. I wanna say PS1. It was turned based. And the whole thing was you are a kid in your village. Your dad is gone. And you are traveling through these mirrors. Each one is it's own world and you are trying to clear them to make it to the Birdman at the last mirror. I never finished the game. Last part I got to I was through a couple of the mirrors (there were only like, 5) and I met some guy guarding a bridge. And I didn't remember the password someone else gave me, so he killed me. Last I remember of it.
Anyone know? I tried googling my butt off and I can't find any pictures or references too it.

It plays like FFX. I remember that.

I have a game I played when I was younger on gba. All I remember was it was a platformer and the main character had a long blue sword and I think i remember a companion or other character that was a blue flame/orb thing that followed you around

The game I'm trying to remember is one I used to play when I was younger.
It was a 2D side-stroller where you played as a kid on a skateboard (I am not sure if the kid was on the skateboard in every level or not) that went around the level avoiding getting hurt and if you did get hurt a voice clip of the kid saying "ouch!" would play.
I think you also collected things but I'm not sure.
The game was played with a controller, was not for PC, displayed on a TV screen and I THINK it was on a cartridge.

The game consists of a hub world (either top down or side scrolling hub where you click the side of the screen to move to the next area). Each item you need is locked behind a minigame. Some of the items are as follows...

- This is *the most vivid scene I remember*: You needed a spark plug: to obtain this, you had to enter a haunted mansion and click on - i.e. collect - the scary faced sparkplugs as they jump up from different areas in the mansion to "scare" you (behind the bedframe, behind a dresser or mirror, right in front of you, etc)

- You needed an item (possibly gas) from a car celebrity at a theater. You would enter her dressing room to talk to her; I'm fairly certain she wore a boa scarf. To get the item for your friend, you had to go through a maze in her wardrobe, but to reach it you had to keep finding gas cans in the maze or you'd run out of gas.

- Another item was locked behind a one-on-one race, where the entire track was littered with obstacles to slow you down but not your opponent. The racer was also extremely haughty and rude to you, from what I recall. It may just be my child memories, but I remember this minigame being excruciatingly hard and I would always save it for last.

There had to be more items to collect, I'm sure of it, because the final scene had upwards of 6+ items. But these are the only three items I can remember.

The final scene was incredibly stressful. It was timed. In the scrapyard, you had to put your friend together with all the parts you collected as the tow truck encroached from the background. When you finally put him together, your friend and you would ride off happily on a road into the sunset, then the tow truck would pop up in a closing scene to say little quips that would vary each time you finished the game, like "Ebebepebebd That's all Folks!" or "And I would have gotten away with it too!" or "Next time I'll catch you!" things like that. My replay value rested solely in getting the "that's all folks" ending quip, I would play the game repeatedly just to hear him say that again.

It was so very close to Putt Putt in art style and world too, but I swear to god this game was not Putt Putt, it felt like some... crude rip off. The characters were raunchy and rude, the game was stressful, scary (in the haunted mansion), and sometimes unforgiving in its mechanics for a little kid's game. I've looked through every Putt Putt game just to make sure and nothing matches up to my memories save for some few coincidences like the Join the Race's race car guy.

FISHER PRICE BIG ACTION GARAGE!! I FOUND IT!! Two years of searching has finally come to an end! My mom finally remembered one of the words in the name, and after it narrowed down the search a single low res picture finally brought me to a name. No wonder it made me constantly think Putt Putt https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=He6por_FXIE it literally looks like a Putt Putt rip off. I'm so happy I finally found it.

Any luck?

I remember playing a PS2 RPG (at least, I think it was an RPG), but only the beginning. You play as a teenage guy and this old guy hangs around and eventually he destroys your house and kills your mom. I think he also eventually was revealed to be an alien or demon. I also remember that the game came out around the same times as Kingdom Hearts 2, so around 2006-2007.

Can someone please tell me the name of this PC RPG

-The game starts with a introscene where it talks about a tale of some warriors who were sent by a king to kill some monsters.But only one of them returned claiming the others had been killed by the monsters. Somehow this guy overthrew the king and started to rule the kingfom with an iron fist.My character was some university student in this kingdom assisted by a guardian angel. In the absence of my guarfian angel the guards took me in custody and sent me a prison out of nowhere.

-When I get to move my character I find myself in a room with an old prisoner sitten on a bed, a dish on the floor and a door out from the room.When my character asked the old prisoner where the others were, he would reply "Down below...", to which my character would say "Down below?..Oh I see, I understand old man."...

-On going outside, I see some guards at the prison gate, A giant red orb on a tree and a few prisoners standing by here and there...The game was 3D with a point and click for movement system.On moving near one of the prisoners, one could find another exit point that led to a scene with two or so cages with a man in one of them.On interacting with the man, he would reply saying, " Water Please..." Beside him was an interactable Poppy Plant.

-In this game you had to open a circular toolbox for everything from talking to casting spells and fighting. It was a demo game so I cant say anything more about it.

Please reply if you know the name of this game.Thank you.

Thank You very much.You made my day on this last day of the year!!

Hello, there are two games I remember, but don't remember.

It was played on an old computer (don't know what kind), but like at least 11 years ago. There was a labyrinth game; it was three dimensional and you would move the platform to move the ball around. You would have to avoid falling in a hole. I remember that there were power ups, sadly I only remember one. It was an item you would have to get to become a ghost (which just let you go through walls).

The second game was this green slime goo plat former game. I think you had to escape. I really don't remember.

Please help. My searches have been futile.

Anyone?

Trying to remember a game for PC. I don't think it was a disc game but you would hop across 3 landing areas and have to collect something thing and then hop back. One of the landing areas in the middle would go up and the other 2 on the outside would go down. You would have to time your jump so you didn't die. It was a simple game but been trying to remember the game and look it up. It was a 2D game and remember playing when I was like 4 or 5 so around the mid 90s.

I once played on a friend's computer a 2d pixel art game that had top view. The main character throws an arrow (or bolt) that you have to retrieve every time to shoot it again. In the beginning of the game there are many doors to choose from. I also remember that the first door enemy is a slime that splits in half each time you hit it. In order to defeat it you need to hit the slime part that has a heart inside. Does anyone remember the name of this game ?

Around what year did you play it? It sounds like Titan Souls, but that game is pretty recent...

I played it two years ago, but since I had the chance to play it just one time for a brief moment I couldn't remember the name. Now I'm pretty sure that Titan Souls is the one I played. Thank you.
