Hi everyone.

I've been searching for a series of games for years. I remember playing them around mid 2000s. They were a cluster of games that came on website or a launcher, all made by the same people if I remember correctly.

One was a game very similar to Tribes, it had skiing identical to the franchise but I believe it was just a clone of it and not a tribes game. You flew around in large robot suits and one of the primary weapons was a 3 barreled chain-gun/mini-gun that was brownish in colour.

Another game included in the cluster of games was one that involved being inside an arena where you would try and get a massive ball into one of the many holes in the walls by jumping into the air. It was sci-fi and I remember you played very butch characters. Similar to rocket-league but with humans/robots. There was a few games like this all involved in a launcher.

Hi,

I used to play this game that was a 2D scroller I think I'm pretty sure it had "little" in the title. You could choose different characters and they'd have their own abilities. Some would throw knives and other would have dragon Ball z type powers. You would have bosses at the end of each level from memory.
I think you started out in a forest and progressed into a castle.
Some of the other abilities was lasers from hands and from eyes, there was a character who could control bats. I've been trying to remember this game for years. Please help. Thanks.

Hello everyone,

I remember a PC game from my childhood(14-19 years ago), you were controlling a character from third person view and trying to find cars with guns on them, some cars had pretty cool guns on them some of them were able to drop oil from bottom so that the chasing cars would slip, you were just fighting with other people in cars with guns. I do not remember more but I remember how cool it felt :D Could anyone help me about the name of it ?

Please, this is haunting my dreams! :D Help.

Hello everybody,
My girlfriend says this would be the only game she would play. But does not remember the title of it.

Her description of the game didn't leave much to go on either.
It is a pc game from the 90's, it's a first person game. When the levels were loading it would show an image of the monster you would be go up against. It appears to have an almost completely black background.
One of the monster was either a wolf, or wolf panther hybrid creature with huge fangs.

I have searched high and low to find a game like this, but no luck.
Any suggestions on whst it could be would be awesome.

Thank you.

Hey, I've been searching for a couple of old games with no success. Maybe you can help me.
#1 Old game where the character was either a bunny or a frog, I know it had the same mechanics like frogger, crossing the road etc. I think it was a 2D perspecive and the second level was a maze with water 'walls' in which you could drop and a timer. When it ran out an anvil would squash your character.
#2 Old game platformer, shooter, aiming with the mouse, in the sewers or something similar with the most basic enemies turrets hung on the ceiling and walls.
#3 Old game similar to starcraft, in which you had to build you colony, develop and you could buy bazooka ants or bugs or something similar.

I don't think I made myself very clear in my explanations so if there's any trouble understanding I'll try to clarify.
Thanks in advance.

EDIT: If relevant they could be played on a 286 PC.

Hi everyone,

I'm searching for an old PC game I played around 12-15 years ago but I don't remember much about it so this is a bit of a long shot. I'm not entirely sure if it was a flash game on a website or just some random game from a CD but I'd lean towards the latter. The only details about the game I can recall are that you had to manage/run a bar/club of some sort. This may have been the sole purpose of the game or it might have just been a small part of it. You had to serve/create(?) drinks and you could place things in the room like pool tables etc. I have a feeling the word 'parlour' had something to do with the game, whether it be in the title or some part of the game.

Not much to go on here but thanks for any help!

Hey guys!
I really need help to find a game i remember i was playing when i was like.. 7-8 years old and i would like to play it again so bad!
i remember there were two teams, not sure if it was multiplayer or singleplayer against computer, but the teams were red and blue. I was playing with some robots. It is a FPS game and u have got some futuristic rifles etc. Last thing i know is that there were some kinda "reactors" one red and one blue and you could like.. steal it or turn of, i dont remember... and if you did this your team won, something like that.
thanks much for your help!

Could #2 have been Abuse?
And #3 might have been either Battle Bugs or Swarm Assault.
Not sure about #1.

Hello everyone. I've been searching for this game for days but found absolutely nothing at all.

It's a pc game that had pretty good graphics for that time. I remember playing it like 9-10 years ago, it's 3D 3rd person but more of a plane view (the camera was more above the head rather than behind it, so the characters looked smaller than usual), where a guy kills I would say pirates or ghosts (I really can't remember, maybe neither) with direct combat (not shooting), located on an island with weird places (some weird locations I really can't describe), and eventually you take a ship and sail through dark and scary tunnels with lots of ghosts that you have to get through while sailing, then you land on another weird island and continue the process.

From the gameplay, I remember you can summon like 3 ghosts to aid you, and another really cool thing where when you have the capability as a character you can hit the ground with the hammer or summon thunder-like powers to take down multiple enemies as once.

I hope someone can help me. Thank you.

Anyone?

Hello, i remember some little things about a 3d rpg game that i played back in 2010 or something
So at first you were in a pretty small village and u were feeding the pigs, then a guard wouldn t let you pass if you didn t help your neighbour catch his duck or something, then you go on an expedition to kill some slimes from a farm
and when u come back your house and mom burns and after that i vaguely remember fighting lots of creatues. It was also a big mountain at the top of the map and a wizzard hiding in a cave that was covered by a rock, you also had skills like fireball and magic dmg, attack dmg, hp to upgrade at every lvl, i also remember someone you should pay to let you pass a bridge. I think that the name of the caracther was rick or dick and that could be also the name of the game, also, in the name there was "something"Wind or "something"Wood ,but i'm not 100% sure. Thanks a lot :D
I don't remember a lot but i think you were seeing yourself from a 3rd person view, in the skies like in diablo
It may also been a very unpopular game.

I'm trying to remember the name of an older '92 - '96 era cocktail table arcade game that was like Arkanoid, but it had a 2-player vs. mode. You could battle the other player that was sitting on the other side of the table and break the bricks in-between. You were also able to put some spin, or "English" on the ball if you were moving the paddle quickly to one side when your paddle hit it, causing the path of the ball to curve. The ball had one small white pixel on it so you could tell if it was spinning and in what direction.

You could collect power-ups like split into multi balls, slow the ball speed down, grow (or shrink) your paddle, sticky paddle, etc.

The controls were a spinner with one "Fire" button for when you got the laser power-up.

We used to frequent the Applebee's restaurant in the Burnsville Center where they had this game. We would always grab a beer and play a couple of vs. games before going to our table.

PLEASE:
I'm desperate,it's been stuck in my head for a year now and I've done everything I could to find it but I never did.
It's a PS2 game I used to play and I would do anything to just even watch a gameplay of it I miss the feeling of playing it so much:

It's a PS2 Game where you play as a boy who has little followers who fight along you,as far as I remember they were small,orange and white in color but didn't look human or anything,they were these ancient creatures or whatever that the more you have around you the stronger they become,they use these combined attacks where they can fuse into a stronger creature.I also remember puzzles and stuff that you had to solve using them and you would of course fight enemies with these little creatures.
-Little orange/white creatures that you can combine to get special powers-That's what I remember best.
(edit:I created an account on this site just to ask this question)
Please help me on this one,be the hero in need x)
And thank you

Could that have been Tokobot Plus: Mysteries of the Karakuri?

You're a lifesaver,what do you want?Money?Elo Boosting in League of Legends?Anything,thank you so so much it's been bothering me for so long.

Hi im trying to think of the name of a game I played around 94 96 it was a top down view over a guy in like a little desert town and you have to rob places like a little diner and so forth building up your level till you can get better equipment to do bigger jobs

found out the name its called Heist but it was in 2000

Mid '90s DOS game, got a shareware version on a PCGamer CD back when a single CD had like 20 demos on it. I'm going to guess the demo was '96 or possibly '97.

Gulf war themed (it is NOT Desert Strike, that's what I thought at first too). Top down view (I think), not isometric. You can play as a helicopter or a tank and can spend money to buy weapons or upgrade your vehicle. Action shoot 'em up. You need to land your helicopter and pick up POWs and bring them back to safety.

Please to be naming the game I'm thinking of, por favor. Been driving me crazy.

Return Fire?[/quote]

No, it was definitely released on Widnows, it may have been Windows exclusive, I don't remember.

Are you sure it was top-down. If it was side-ways on it could be Cobra Gunship?

yeah, I'm sure it was either top down or isometric.

So I've been trying to find this game for literally decades; I played it in the mid 80s on a school BBC or BBC master system. It was an oil spill management sim (possibly based on an actual incident in, I want to say, Scotland) with a top down view of the area. You had a limited budget to purchase various spill fighting options, that had to be deployed. Keeping an eye on wind and ocean currents was involved iirc.

I've searched online with no success.

It is killing me that I cannot figure out the name of this game! Please help!!!

I'm pretty sure it was jut a game demo that came on my family's Windows computer back in the early 2000's. Here's my best description of what I remember:

You were in control of this small spaceship-like vehicle that you maneuvered with the arrow keys from the 3rd person point of view, which hovered just above the ground. It was a kind of dark and very rocky terrain, and there was a small map of the terrain up in top left/right corner of the screen which showed a small dot for where you currently were and the paths you could take. I think the objective of the game was to move through the rocky maze to collect some sort of power-ups, which I remember looking like little glowing objects or pieces of space rock. You would just hover over it and you would kind of soak up the power. I think you might even have had to make your way back to the main base every once in a while to unload the power. The tricky part of the game was to watch out for these creepy space creatures that would attack your ship if you got too close. I remember that they made this really loud creepy screeching noise, and when they'd attack you you would have to try and get away because I don't remember being able to shoot them...
And I believe that it you collected enough of the special power-ups you would move on to new levels. And I remember that the graphics were very cool for the time, it looked very 3D.

I hope this description is detailed enough that someone might know what I'm talking about!!! Please, if you think you know this game I'd love to know! It's driving me crazy!!

Hi I looking for a geme that you start with an army group of scientist and soldiers and you get out of a bunker after biohazard, and you see civilians being kidnaped and help them, If I remeber it was turn based game, you can get vehicles like hammer SUV tanks, and you need also ammunition.
later on you will find out that there is a cult, and some bio company that caused the hazard

Pleas help me

That might be Advance Wars: Days Of Ruin (known as "Dark Conflict" in Europe; the two versions have different dialogue and character names). =)

I'm looking for three pc games. Early 90s? I played this game around the same time I played jewel chase, also a favorite that I just found 5 months ago!

Both my sister remember this game but say it's the same game, I think it's two different games.

Character is a little girl wearing a dress and she's pushing around gifts, red circular and square gifts that are warped in an orange or yellow ribbons. You have to push around these presents to make a path or even steps to reach the next level. The circle gifts will keep roing unless there's something that blocks it.

The other game is an bird view game play. You're looking down at a fixed scene. Also a little girl character wearing a bathing suit. This one, you push around chairs and I think I remember beach balls too that you have to push around. It's the same concept of the first game. So parts in the game you have to pass pools. She can't swim so she has to find a life floate ring(donuts floate) to get passed the water.

I'm pretty sure i played put-put around the same time too.

Third game had a bunch of animal characters. I think your buddy is a bear or something and there's this big talent show everyone is going to be in. You have to do a bunch of little puzzles with each animal to help them prep for the show. There's a mean porcupine or a beaver I think that wants to sabotage the show, i think because he felt he wasn't invited to join the show. I'm not sure.

hi!
im looking for a game that came out before 1999, played on a windows computer. i think it was a DOS game, but not necessarily.
it was a platformer, where you control some kind of small monster character, you move around the level and you can attack some enemies i think. the levels were not large, i think only 1 or 2 screens wide. the thing i remember most from this game is that on the second (?) level, the background is a chain link fence, and there is a hole in it at some point.
i think you were supposed to enter through the hole somehow, maybe to rescue a fellow monster. i remember this level because i was stuck on it, couldnt find a way to progress from it. i played this at some point between 1996-1999. i think it was maybe a game on one of those compilation CDs with "100 games!" on them.
i checked the "Aaahh!!! Real Monsters" video game, but i dont think thats it.

please help :)

There was this game I played as a kid, probably early to mid 90s on Windows or DOS. It was a platformer and you played as an animal of some sorts, collecting stuff. What really stuck with me was that after every level you had a certain amount of time where you could fly back and fourth through the level, crushing its building blocks and getting bonus points for doing so. Any idea?

There were probably dozens of those games... Maybe Jazz Jackrabbit?

I definitely played Jazz Jackrabbit at that time, but that wasn't what I was looking for. The guys over at r/tipofmyjoystick finally solved it: I was looking for Skunny: Back to the Forrest.

Hi everyone,
'm looking for an old game I used to play on my PC back when I was a kid. I hope I will be able to refresh your memory because even I have very faded memories about this game.

I remember that the game starts at the old house where the main character (a young man) wakes up in a room and has a problem remembering what happened. Like he had some sort of amnesia. There is also his mother inside the house and they talk something for a while until he goes outside. He was in a certain village full with grass, trees and stuff like that. All I remember from that village was: first, there was a woman with a bucket of apples walking around and she wanted us to do something for her. Second, there was also house where the character's uncle was supposed to live in, however, you had to wait until 5pm so that you can enter that house because uncle wasn't there, nor was he there once we entered the house. Third thing I remember was having to leave the village but I wasn't allowed to do it so I had to wait for a nighttime to fall so I can sneak through the guards to leave the village (I remember there was a village-leaving cutscene where I sneak through the guard - the cutscenes were movielike). The second village wasn't like the first one. It was dirty, muddy and had pigs at the entrance. Also, there was a mission in the mines somewhere where I was attacked by some ghost. (Atleast I think it was the ghost).

Game is played from like a bird-view and I can't certanly say how the graphics looked because I don't really remember that. All I know is that the main character had some sort of a cape and his steps could be heard when he walked.

Hello everyone.. So i played this monster breeding kind of game when i was little...

Hi guys! In looking for a game i played for maybe 15 years ago. It looks a bit like Digger ( https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digger_(video_game) ) but insted you play as a little blob. You dig for white diamonds ("walk" under it) and there are some balls that can fall on you, and you die and if you walk away it will block your way back. I dont remember much more im afraid but hopefully someone else does.
For some reason factory comes to my mind as a part of the name of the game with the blobs name on front, "blob name's" factory. But on the other hand im not sure either.

Thanks!

DonutMunchie:
About 10 years ago, we had this PC game where you would buy creatures from a shop (possibly from a wizard?) and the creatures would drop gems that matched the color of the creature. I believed the creatures were one solid color and represented a element and their drops would have the elements symbol. So a fire creature dropped a red gem with a flame on it. You collected the gems by clicking on them or hovering over them (I'm not really sure) and then you could either sell the gems or they were money for you to buy more creatures and purchase upgrades (like drops are made faster and in greater numbers). The levels took place in forest areas that would change themes (normal forest, snowy forest, etc) every few levels. You unlocked creatures by reaching a certain level in the story and could buy however many you wanted each level. The shop was accessible at any time during the level and you could sell your creatures if you were low on money.

I cannot remember if there was an actual story line with villains or if something would come along and eat your creatures or if you had to feed the creatures.
Anyway, I'm hoping someone will be able to help me out. I've had this game stuck in my head for a few years and it drives me crazy not knowing what it is. I'd really appreciate any help I get :)

Hi guys! I'm looking for this game for years now so I will give this a go.

It is a platform game for pc, I must have played it after 2000 and before 2010. It could be possible that the game is from before 2000.

You begin in a sort of village, outside what looks most like a forest. And its dark outside. And the theme from this game is mythical/fantasy/fairy-land. I think that you are a wizard, or maybe a fairy. The first area you will find after walking out of the village is a cave. And there you can't go further because something is jammed. Maybe the door is locked, I'm not sure. So there are definitely puzzles in this game you have to solve somehow. You can fight enemies, and there is also a shop in the game where you can buy stuff. I think there are NPC's you can talk to. But only small talk (I think). There are different kind of levels in the game. Like the cave, and after that a deep forest. Maybe more, but I think I didn't got that far in the game. Don't think there are bosses. Could be.

I'm looking for two games.
I have no idea when they were released but it must've been in the early 2000s, like 2002-2010.

The first is some equestrian game, but what set it apart from other games similar to it was that you could care for it after the contests by cleaning the stable, polishing the hooves, washing its back, and refilling the food and water. You could also change rider outfits which could be accessed in a drawer in the house beside the stable. You could beforehand choose which region you'd like to represent, and I distinctly remember it saying the word "colour" for rider outfit and horse colors. When you participated in the shows, it was almost always outdoors and you used the space bar and the up down left right keys to move the horse as you rode it. You could jump over those bar things and you could hear judges commenting on it. It showed you what pace your horse was in like trot and canter, and going off the course or knocking too many things over would result in the contest ending and the word "disqualified" being shown.

The other game was about a story of a camp with bug people. It started out with a really low-quality image of a door, where your name was asked. When you chose the name it wouldn't show as a sign on the door. The door would open to a young boy's bedroom (you are the boy) and there's a book at the side of the bed wide open. As you approach it you go into the book and it's a camp with bug people. A blue beetle guy introduces you and helps you around the entire game. You have to get a certain amount of different things from playing different mini games a around the camp to complete the game. I distinctly remember the blue beetle saying the phrase ollie ollie oxenfree.

Both games had the graphic quality of Barbie's Super Sports.

The first game you are looking for should be Riding Star! There are apparently a few different versions and I can't find the exact one I had but that should get you started, if that is indeed the game. (Mine used to lock up in one of the competitions so it would say on loop "jumped it so easily - a true mark of class there" over and over. It became a household joke in my family :P)
