Hey guys.
It's gonna be vague, cuz I played this game around early 2000s, but I will try to put all details I remember.
It was a win 95/98 game. It wasn't a dos game, because I remember it having a launcher [it was something completely new for me]. The launcher was just a standard rectangle with buttons like "start game" and "options", but there was also a "troubleshooting" button [the 10 yo me was fascinated by that word, because I'm not a native speaker].
The game itself was a top down "space" shooter. You were piloting a Millenium Falcon-like space ship and you were shooting other ships [at least I think it was the main objective of the game]. I put "space" shooter in quotation marks, because you weren't fighting in space, but on the surface of planets of your own choice. The planet/level selection screen was also something innovative back then so I remember it strongly. I think I also was able to pick different space ships, but I'm not sure about that. I also remember that one of the planets [I think it was the first, default level] was dark green/brown and another level was like dark blue and black. Also the graphics were very good for those times. I remember it not being as pixely as other games from that era. The ship and the planets had that weird "modeling clay" Donkey Kong Country feel. Or at least that's how I remembered it, I'm not 100% sure about that.
I know the informations I provided are really not precise, but I have flashbacks of this game for years now and I really wanna play it again. Hope you can help me.

Howdy guys.

This game I played during the early 2000s was a point and click adventure/puzzle game, the main objective was collecting 3/4 different gems in order to beat the game in which I can't remember the ending but I believe you had to put all the gems into some stone or whatever. What I do remember is that it mostly took place in a forest, of what I remember in one area of the forest there's gold lying on the ground. If you try to pick it up you can caught by a rope trap and the trapper walks up to you, if you disable the trap and pick it up it's actually pyrite, fake gold. For getting one gem I think you had to get past/kill some wandering man who might have been wearing a robe, but I believe he wandered randomly across a few rooms.

The next part I remember is once you have all the gems you have to get to an area past a bridge, if you go to fast it collapses so you had to manually lower your walking speed in a menu screen so you can safely walk across it.

It came in one of those basic plastic square containers on a cd as a lot of games did, can't remember the cover of that at all. The game seems pretty obscure as I clearly remember how the graphics and some of the rooms looked and can't find any similar pictures, they weren't cartoonish at all but still had that classic retro pixel look.

Appreciate the help.

I would try:
Raptor: Call of the Shadows
DemonStar
Stargunner
Tyrian

Ok, I've been trying to remember this one for awhile. It was a racing game, where your character was a robot/person that transformed into a motorcycle. That is all I can remember except, I know it was after 2002 when we had it, and it was on PlayStation.If you can remember this, thanks.

I remember playing this game before 2010.. It was like world war game or something.. There was a campaign, It had different countries you could choose like Russia, USA, Iran/Iraq and you would build a base, troops and attack the other enemy's base. You would start it out with a HQ and go from there.

Command & Conquer series? > it could be the first installment, or the Red Alert one?

ur the man...... thank you, i was trying so hard to remember this game...

Gelos1272503:
Hello,
Was looking for a game for a while, or better to say for a long long time.

It supposed to be lately 90-s game. First person with some RPG elements.
You start by landing on a parachute in some sort of jungle/forest. By killing 'lizzard men' and other enemies, i guess, you could get their skin and make some clothes, could use bandages, sewing kits, anidotes and so on, as i remember.
Also there is snowy mountains location.

It was more than 15 years ago, so thats all i remember. Would appreciate if someone can help me find this game.

Sounds like Robinson's Requiem.

Pls Help me, I am looking for an old game. I remember playing it on windows 98 or xp. I can remember the game in good detail. I t was a game where you flew a spaceship (2d) and you had to kill 10 red enemy spaceships, you fought against them in kind of a Table with rows and collums,and with every level the 10 red spaceships got more intelligent and fired back......
It was a really awesome game pls help to find it :). Sry for bad english :)

Please if you can recall, I can't can't can't seem to find this game after hours of searching online!

It's a kids Cd-ROM game from somewhere between 1998-2001. something i think you could pick up at a book fair during that era, but it wasn't a education game.

I think its isometric and 3d.

Your character is stranded on some alien planet where you are trying to collect pieces of a broken spaceship or transporter or something.

there are aliens (most are friendly) that live in villages and caves as well as robots.

throughout the game you are helped and communicating with some young scientist guy (I think he has red hair and a white lab coat).

The game play has pattern puzzles like finding the right path to walk through in an alien garden as well as finding keys and getting past electric pathways.

I don't think you can be violent or attack.

That sounds like Dr. Brain Thinking Games: IQ Adventure!

Dude thank you so much!!! It totally is, you are spot on. I've spent so much time trying to find this game over the years. I very much appreciate it!

so the game im trying to figure out was on PS1. It was a fighting style game similar to that of tekken.. all i remember was in the final battle you face this pirate looking guy and once you beat him, a skeleton form of him appears and now you have to battle him.... at the end the cutscene ends with the sword in the ground and blood around. any ideas?? thanks

Could that have been Kinetica?

Could that have been Soul Blade, an early Soul Calibur game? Here's a video starting at the final boss fight with fleshy-then-skeletal pirate Cervantes/Souledge:

I don't remember the name of the game, either, but I remember the game! I had it on a Windows 95 shareware CD, I think, from a company with a name like "Show and Go". I'm sure it was on other shareware discs, though.

I am trying to remember a game I played a long time ago, it was either on PS2 or PS3, but it would have been early PS3 as I do remember there were no trophies. The main character was a male, had black hair, a red headband, and he had a magical ability that made a blue blade come out of his hand when he swung it. It could be charged, and the longer it was charged, the longer the blade would get. I know it was a JRPG, and I am pretty sure it was based on an Anime or ended up having an anime based on it. I know it had a story line too it too, and it involved helping or saving a young girl, and I know her brother was involved. There was also a scene where you were shipwrecked on an island and had to find a way off of it. The enemies were monsters. 3D in style. That is all I can remember.

Trying to think of a few PC games from 90s/early 2000s. Any help appreciated.

One game was a point-and-click adventure/mystery game where I think you were a dragon or dinosaur that was green with yellow hair/spikes. At one point you talked to a seagull. You also took a picture of a lifeguard and he was eaten by a shark when you took it.

Another few games were in a collection, on a CD I think. One was a zorb race game where you play as someone inside a ball racing against other people. Dark colours in city landscapes. In another game in the collection you were in the desert and you were a leopard or lion or tiger, having fights with other ones.

Thanks

Could the first one have been Snap Dragon?

Thanks, but no... It was like a diagonal top down view game and the part with taking a pic was only one part of the mission. You had to do all these little tasks that would bring you further and further along in the game. Like finding clues etc.

Hey guys, I'm thinking about a game that I played a long time ago, I forgot for which console, but it was like a dungeon cralwer type of game. It was 3d really old, I remember playing it back in to 90s. If I remember correctly, there was an arcade game for it, where you can choose different characters/class. And them as a team you would go to different levels, and you wuold choose levels by going to this round area with circles on them, the circles being the entry way to the level, kind of like a crash bandicoot set up.

I can only recall a small part of this game from back in the early 2000s. It was definitely kids PC game and 2D cartoon style animation and may have been Australian. The only part I remember is trying to collect blue crystals in the desert while trying to shoot down vulture type birds. I also vaguely remember having to clear sand to find the crystals maybe? Not a lot to go by, but hoping someone else remembers it.
Thanks!

So, I've been trying to remember this game for a long time now, sadly, there isn't much information I can give.
It's either a PS or PS2 Game and it could've been a demo version.
You know, like this CDs in magazines that had I don't know 7 or what demo versions of games.
Maybe around 1998-2006 (says not much tho since the game could've been released at a much earlier date), a Action/Adventure/Shooter/... not really sure what Genre/s exactly.

I do think the first level starts with you falling down into a subway, can't add more to that tho.
You had to collect keycards in order to enter through closed doors - like a lvl 4 keycard *- (who would've thought that) and to be honest that's all I can remember.
Oh one thing, there was something you had to do with a production line I think, like stopping it to be able to walk on it so you can get to the other side (that was blocked or just inaccessible, don't know).

The game reminds me of Syphon Filter, Metal Gear, Resident Evil ... for some reason, but I think I'm just mixing games together to fill missing gaps in my memory.
* That's also where I think I'm filling gaps with memories of other games, like the keycard probably comes from Metal Gear.

I know it's close to nothing, sorry.

Hey guys ,I remember It was a 2d game, you loaded the boxes properly onto the ship,then you finished and sent it to the ship,a whale came across and tried to overthrow the ship, I can not remember the name of this game,
sorry for bad english :)

Okay so there was this car game that I got introduced to years ago during our tech time at summer camp. I've racked my brain over the years and have researched and worded it in every possible way on Google - which had lead me to this. I created an account just for this. Like I said, its car game and I don't remember it all that much since it's been awile but it was super fun. I believe that you could drive around wherever in the world and if I remember correctly, you were actually the car. You could pull into your own house and when driving around you could see other "drivers" (cars) and get into crashes... That's all I really remember, but if y'all could hep, that would be fabulous! Thanks ahead of time!

The game might be way older than you remember. Try "Alien Force" (1990).

Hoping someone can help me out here. This one isn't that old, I'm thinking I played it 8-10 years ago. It was a browser based 2d shooter where you shoot enemies and absorb them when they die. It seems your character and the enemies were all built up from small bubbles and the weapons you had shot out bubbles too. As your ship/character evolved your bubble guns' size and quantity would change along with the size and makeup of your your ship. You fight enemies screen by screen and can exit either to the top, left, right, or down to a new screen. The screens and enemies seemed to be randomly generated. Thanks!

Most probably it was one of Bubble tanks games (there is a series). Uh, did you even try to google it?

That's it, thanks! Yeah tried to google it and numerous failed attempts brought me to this forum. Must be my lack of google-fu

Okay I dont remember game at all, all I remember is that game was on PS1 and Chords of the one of the soundtracks. I remember soundtrack very well. I know chords of the beginning of the track. I played part of it on virtual piano and recorded. Here is link - https://vocaroo.com/i/s07S3gsbtbhG
Also I remember the track was starting with Guitar and the chords I provided and after it fades in with FLUTE. I remember flute and no its not Zelda. I will be very thankful if someone tells me the name of the game.

Hello everyone! I went to a store and I played this game in the 90s and I believe it was on Sega Saturn. I just remember it being like a quick time event kind of game. I believe you played a young boy. First thing I remember is running towards a door and you have to mash a button to fill up a bar to open the door. As the bar filled up, a voice would say "power, power, power!" Once you got past this part, the next think I remember is free falling and then you see a ledge in which you have to push up to grab the ledge. Ledge starts to fall and you push right to grab the ledge next to you. I then remember jumping onto something which was full of warms. You have to push left, right, left to shake off the warms. If you don't, you die and you have to start over. Same thing for the other qte events, if you fail, you have to start over. I saw other kinds playing and they got much further than me since I was not very familiar with the mechanics. They eventually fought this goblin looking cave monster. The next monster I remember them fighting is this white snake looking hydra/dragon that is in the sand. At no point in time during the game could you free roam. It was all qte. Hopefully there is someone out there who knows lol thank you

hey guys!
ok there is a game i played a long long time ago when i was 10 years old i think.
All i can remember is that you played with a tiny water dropled that could move.I also remember that it s color was purple and this water droplet was created by a god i might say and it goes to find its twin droplet through the world.The game had different levels it was a kind of an arcade game.You had to jump over things and beat some enemies.I also remember that it had a kind of sad music throughout the campaign.I know that i am not very specific but really have the game in mind but i cant remember much more details and i cant find it anywhere

That was Strahl (also known as Triad Stone). =)

Hey guys! I'm back again after a while.
I'm looking for an old game, pretty sure it's for SNES (not sure) from the 90's. All I remember is that there was this guy dressed in black leather clothing. He was in some city at night. As you start, if you move to the scene over on the left side, there would be falling tires. After you got something, I'd assume it was the star(s) that was jumping, I believe on top of a crate.. then you'd go to the Right in the game and you'd get in a car and follow this wolf type animal with like bunny ears. The car would go very fast and you can't hit anything or you'll mess up and have to start every single thing all over again. The car that you were in, drove through the middle of a building while under construction... something like this https://images.zawya.com/images/cia/zXlarge/140610050243REST.jpg

please help
Any Ideas?

Hey everyone!

My friends and I are on a "finding old games we remember playing" spree, and I recall vague memories of this one old PC game, which was a 2d shooter, where you were playing as a cyborg/robot I think, and you were in a laboratory, and you could shoot the scientists and later marines showed up, and it was violent as hell. I just don't remember what it's called at all. And I recall some intermission screen as well with a woman talking. But that one detail is kinda hazy.
I'd love it if you could help me find it, because I don't think I'll be able to sleep until I do, and it's 3am.
Thanks in advance

Edit: Just to be clear, it was a side scroller, not top-down or anything. I also recall vague details of a platforming part with boxes, and how the game was really gory.

ok, i am typing this out for the second time because i dont think it saved the 1st time. i apologize if it ends up on here twice. but i am trying to remember an old windows game pack i used to play, (somewhere between windows 95 and windows ME) that included a game called moonshot, and a nifty little mini golf game that had all sorts of mechanical contraptions (conveyor belts to move the ball, landmines to wreck havoc etc.) there were several others but im have trouble recalling atm. if this extremely vague description rings anyone's bells, please let me know!
*UPDATE* I found it! galaxy of games published by egames. man that takes me back...

Sounds like old school Gauntlet

Hi,
Before I start I want to say, it is so nice that this thread exists (and for so long too!).

So the description of this game is VERY vague, I don't expect anybody to know it, I was trying to look for it on my own for a long time.

I'm not sure how old was that game. It was a PC game I played it around 2005, but the graphics and style of the game would suggest it was from 90s. So the game was a strategy/RTS. The action would take place in some dark/hellish kind of map. You would pick a fraction to play, I think that all of them were some kind of monsters; unfortunately, I only remember one, that was some weird harpy/bat/vampire kind of creatures. You would build a base, and units to fight, the buildings had like crystal attached to it (or the minions used some kind of crystals to build structures?).

If anybody got anything out of that description, please send suggestions my way.

I posted this a LOOOONG time ago and got no answer, I hope I get luckier this time:

The game I got in my head is a kind of "jeopardy" game where you had to answer correctly to move on and depending on the level you either climb up rocks or just win points. The catch is that the characters in game are monsters, and the game happens in various places, from space to some kind of mountains/volcano/hell.

It is impossible I owned the game, so if I'm not mistaken I got that game from a demo CD for win 95/98 or even 2000/millenium. And I can tell because there were some "extras" shown after you lose, showing you levels you could play when having the full version of the game (the mountain climbing being the one I remember the most)

In short, this are monsters participating in a game of jeopardy/who wants to be a millionaire(because there were multiple choice questions) with questions of general knowledge, It's a demo (or at least I played it as a demo) and has different locations.

Sadly I can't remember any of the questions since I played the game back when I didn't know English yet. But I can remember the questions were repetitive since I got to answer some of them right by just remembering the answers.

I hope someone remembers something about it.

EDIT: after doing some research, I found the game "You don't know Jack" and I can tell this game I'm talking about has more similarities to that game than to jeopardy.

Hi All

A friend and I have been trying to find this game for ages, even trying similar images on google and going through produced games of that time etc etc.. so hoping that you could help

I am a little unsure the production time of the game but lets say before 2008, it was very much similar to the current game called forts... but it was 3d and you would build walls around your base increase production and build like different canons on your walls and from a fps perspective try and shoot their towers and resources to win.. the image of the game cover was like a canon very similar to a minigun but with 5 canon barrels...

Many thanks

Hi all,

I have been thinking about this one game I played in my childhood during the 90's.

I remember that you were basically fighting trash (trash creatures maybe) using shampoo, detergent and such items that you could pick up. If I remember correctly there was also some tornado creatures that chased you :/. The levels were filled with trash laying around, and for some reason I remember pizza boxes

I hope somebody remembers this game, thanks in advance.
