A psp fps game that I think takes place in Miami, you have to explore areas and kill mafia members, I remember you could find bags of coke to get a bonus or something

I cannot remember the year I played this game, but it was during the PS2 era. Pre rendered backgrounds, action based but maybe with some light RPG elements. Fixed camera, multiple rooms, similar to games such as the early 3d Castlevanias, Rygar 3d, DMC, Onimushas, Gladiator, it might have had a tower or two, a giant caterpillar and possibly the main character using some sort of whip (definitely not castlevania), although I could be wrong.
If this is still too vague, any PS2 list with action-orientated, pre-rendered backgrounds and light RPG elements would be helpful and assist me with narrowing down my search and maybe help me find games similar I could enjoy.

Thankyou.

Hello there!

I hope you guys can help me out, even though i think it is an obscure title.
What i remember:
2d side scrolling horror, probably japanese. The protagonist was a girl who's trapped in some nightmarish place with a butcher like figure(maybe there was like a potato sack on his head) who kills her if he catches her. There were traps all over the place, you could die really easily. Another obscure part i remember that she lost her clother throughout the game( mind you i saw a walkthrough on youtube censored). Basically if you were not careful enough, things stabbed you, sliced you up, broke your bones, broke your whole body.

Sounds like it could possibly be Clocktower First Fear.

There was this (I'm guessing it was this genre since it had zombies in it) horror game for the ps1 I believe set in a mansion. It had a dark atmosphere from what I remember. When I walked through a door to this one room, around the corner there was a zombie eating a body and then turns around and gets up to follow you. but I think he stopped once you left the room. Also, I remember opening the front door to exit, but some kind of dinosaur popped out from outside. But this is all I remember, I watched a friend play this game, but we only played for like 5 minutes because we got scared (we were very young when we played this game). I was thinking it was the first resident evil game, but I'm still not for sure, I watched some gameplay videos on it, but it still seems a bit too light looking from what I remember. I remember it having a dark blue look, it was quite dark in the mansion. But I never played any of the resident evil games before, so I have no idea.

Check this video, there is passage with the "zomnbie eating" https://youtu.be/RD3zDYc2yNg?t=401

Oh, thank you. Still looks a bit different from what I remember. But it has a super super long time, so probably that game then. But what about the dinosaur part then from the front door?

You're welcome ^^

The front door of the beginning contains a video but it's not with a dinosaur:

After, maybe it's one of the Dino Crisis, but honestly I do not know that serie:

Okay so update:game may not be for PC,even tho I did play it on mine so it was most likely cracked.(played it on Windows XP,had it on a CD,game has to have been made before 2005,most likely in the late 90s)
So 2D platformer,side view,main story:aliens kidnap main characters girlfriend,he goes to save her.
Contained multiple different stages(forest,desert),last stage was on alien spaceship.
There were enemies(either animals or alien-like creatures) and bosses,once final boss was defeated,boy comes to the girl who says:My Hero! Also,contained collectable items(stars/gems/coins) and MAYBE the character had some special power that he could fight with,but I don't remember.

wow ur awesome thanks

Ive been looking for a game for more than a decade (!)

Im looking for a game
It mustve been released before 2004, but couldve been a lot before.

Its an topdown arena shoot em up type game with a very distinct soft colour art style.

You would play as a little space ship flying around the map trying not to fall of the corridors, with AI ships around that you had to destroy (i mostly played MP over LAN vs a friend, the AI spawned dynamically there). you would collect various weapons and upgrades like rockets and bombs, shields and even could deploy turrets to destroy other ships.

The art style is really what stands out the most, i can only describe it as the love child of Planetary Annihilation and nerf. with lots of soft colours and kinda whimsical looking explosions. these explosions where really where the game shined and youd be bounced around the map alot if too close.

I have no clue what it was called but im sure i would recognize it immediately if i saw it, been through massive list of ye oldy games looking for it but cant Fing find it.

If anyone knows this that be AEWSOMEW, yes AWESOME.

yurayura:
Hi i am looking for the names of 2 really old PC games that i played before as a child.I can't remember the game as a whole but only tiny parts of the game.

The first one had a dog(?) where it will say anything, literally anything you type. Yes words that do not make sense like "azsdfcvgbnmkl" but i am not so sure about vulgarities since its probably a kids game.

Another one is a puzzle game. I rhink you had to match 2 same pictures while faced down or back like those memory games. When u match 2 same switch outlet it will start singing. I cant remember what it sang about but i think it said something like concession.

And yeah thats about it really vague memory, I hope to find these games soon...

Does no one know these games?;; These games are really old it is probably released in the late 1990s or early 2000s... please help!

Kieran T. Diver:
For a whole decade I have been looking for a classic PS1 game which has proven very difficult for me to track down. I'm hoping that by describing it to the best of my ability on this thread then somebody might know what the game could be....

Basically you're in a haunted castle or mansion (I can't really remember which) and I remember playing a really strange looking character. You have to locate random objects in various parts of the castle; for example, on the rooftop and inside. As part of the game there was a fantastic twist. A spinning wheel was included (much like the wheel of fortune) and dependent on how well you did in the level; you would then land on a very good spot on the wheel succeed to the next level; if you had done good. If you proved unsuccessful, then you would either land on game over (if really awful) or you would end up boss battling with a little girl covered in gothic makeup and jet black hair.

I remember the way she looked exactly and she was quite pretty. She used to freak me out though. She had a horrible laugh and had real anger issues. I don't remember if it was true but the boss battle took place in a dark round room surrounded by loads of doors. Each of the doors opened and I can't remember if the girl kept appearing out of different doors or whether she sent slaves out to battle. I just remember boss battling with her and losing every time due to the difficulty of her strength. The spinning wheel was quite colourful but the entire game was dark and moody.

If anybody is aware of a game of this content and you know the title; it would mean a lot if you could let me know...

Hope you're all having a good start to a new week. Kindest of regards

Hi everyone....

I still haven't found this game that I mentioned in this post from 2016, but my mum remembers it's content like myself, and I can add more information to the game description. There was a train at some point in the game, a hallway, a room with loads of gold where there were hidden objects. My mum says ninja women would come out from the doors in the round boss battle room. I also remember there were two good characters. One was fat and dumb, some sort of animal possibly, and the other was taller, slimmer and more intelligent. The fat one had a deep goofy voice, and the taller one had a more higher pitched voice. You got to choose to play as one of them, if I remember so. Basically the game is categorized as a point-and-click hidden object game mixed with fighting and adventure. It was definitely on the PlayStation but I can't remember if it was 1 or 2. The spinning wheel in the wheel round was like a carnival wheel. Bright and colourful. Someone else on this forum, actually mentioned similar information of this game, a while back too on this thread. It would mean so much if you could help. This game was part of a demo disc, so may not have made it big, or be well-known enough. many thanks

I am trying to remember the 1st game I played when I was 2 1/2. It would have been 1980's to 1993 at the latest. It looks like a 80's game though. The colors were that BRIGHT light blue and pink. It was an educational game where you went from station to station on a train by doing some kind of educational activity. Does anyone have an idea of what it could be? I have googled my butt off to try and find it and I can't find anything! I want to say it had "Express" in the title but I'm not 100% sure. It seems as if it wasn't a popular game at all so I'm not sure if anyone can help but if you can I would REALLY appreciate it!!

I can't remember this game, it's been stuck in my head for ages now

You play as snail-like aliens and you have to fight humans
I do remember a ship that looks like a half life 3 combine gunship
I played it when i was around 8 so it had to be out before 2009

I think it was a strategy game
It's on PC

Thanks for any help!

Hi everyone, i'm not sure if anyone knows about this game because it was such an obscure one but basically it started with a red haired child who had one of these fish toys you use in the bath like a duck and the kid accidentally removed the plug. The fish got flushed down and by some weird magic the kid too and landed in the ocean. The toy became alive too and we find out that there is a gigantic hole in the ocean. A sea lion is currently using himself as a plug and tells us to look for the real one or the entire ocean would lose all his water.

All in all the game was about helping various fishes out with their problems (like one was about a french crab and cakes)it gaining stuff from them to switch with other objects until the final "boss" where we find out that it was a shark baby who was holding the plug as a pacifier. A bit of a puzzle solving game.

I don't know if anyone knows the name of it but i would appreciated it.
Thanks

Could it have been Alphabet Express Preschool?

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.

Hey. Me again. Still looking for the game.
I've kinda given up all hope on finding it on my own, since I tried virtually everything and I still can't find it. Meaning you guys are my only hope. I'd love it if you could help.

You haven't said if it's on PC and if it is a point and click adventure, or even where you are from...
But it could be Backpacker? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backpacker_%28video_game_series%29
Or at least something similar. I did a quick similar games search but couldn't find anything earlier than '95 or with express in the name.

Hey guys! So recently I've been thinking about this game, it was from the 2000ʼs, something 3D and it was in first person. I remember it was a maze game and there was a lot of puzzles for you to solve so you could pass to the next level. I'm not sure but you could see the character and it had a hat? something like mario. whenever you die in the game a shinning white ball would appear around the character. Also there's this specific part of the game where you could die from water because it's going up and you had to jump on a platform. You could collect green stuff, something like diamonds. I've played it on the PC but I don't know where did I get that game from, probably over the internet.

I've been trying to think of this game for a while now. It involved music and a train I believe. It had a weird song that was catchy and basically, it was about the alphabet I think? Early 2000's or late 90's, on PC

Hi. This game is like a cartoon wars but not stickmans, my team is humans with guns and tanks enemy team is maybe robots but im not sure. i've played iphone 5 or 6 years ago.

A psp fps game that I think takes place in Miami, you have to explore areas and kill mafia members, I remember you could find bags of coke to get a bonus or something

Miami Vice: The Game?

Hi, I'm looking for an old strategy game (3D top-down view) for PC that ran on Dos and older versions of Windows, most likely made in the 90s. Each level or mission starts with your spaceship landing on a planet then 2-3 scientists come out, each of them has a specialty. You build structures and units with a scientific/evolutionary theme, for example you build a unit that looks like a red/pink dog or goat. You also plant/harvest some weird resources or plants. Sometimes hostile creatures come and attack your base and scientists. If anybody recognizes what I'm talking about please give me the title of that game and thanks in advance. Cheers.

Ok, this is gonna be a hard one for you guys. There was an old pc game (or maybe ps2??) but it had a medieval like setting, you started in a dark village, there were giant reptile like enemies, it was a night (hence dark village) I know somewhere along the way there was a lake? and around it was a windmill or similar structure where I believe you could get a crossbow. I seem to link it to the Deltora Quest books but can't find any game with that besides a ds game but this was waaaay before ds. If you can find it, I will be highly impressed because I have had no leads in years. I should also mention the game was in 3rd person.

No that wasn't it, there is no human in this game and freddy is a well real fish.

Hi guys,

I am look for an old 2D puzzle game about a bald man wearing white robe, probably Karate clothes. He was carrying and moving blocks of stone on top of each others to reach the exit. There were levels named from A to Z. Thanks a lot !

Hi!
I am looking for an old school pc cd game.
I remember playing this game as early as 1996 i think.
I think you had to run it through ms dos if I remeber correctly.
It was a turn based rpg where you selected your units and used attacks or skills. The main character prince could use this skill that rained swords from the sky and hit everything. There was also this fairy with blue apparel and a pink haired girl with red armor and her hair was in a pony tie. Also a dragon/human hybrid who could fight in dragon form.
Kind of reminds me of farland tactics a bit. Cant remeber the name of the name of the game......think it was made in Asia.

Any help would be greatly appeciated!!!

Been searching for years - Reddit was of no use.

Played this PC game in the late 90s, early 2000s.

I remember the log in had like a picture of the earth. The premise of the game was you would pick a neighborhood and try to get other people to buy a home there as well. You could upgrade your home with furniture, cars, art, etc. with the money that you earned from selling homes. You could also sell everything you bought to keep earning more money. I think in time the goal was to have the biggest neighborhood in all of the world.

You would have a character that was like a sims character. This wasn't second life or sims though.

Any help would be awesome!

Genewars..?

I went through the Chronological RTS list on Wikipedia, and quite a few fit, but not exactly as described.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_real-time_strategy_video_games

Hello.. If I could, I would reward lunch and a gift card to whoever can figure out the name of these 2 games, because I've been searching it for YEARS!!! It's really hard to find!

Back in 1996 I had Windows 95 and had all these cool games that it came with. Majority of them I have forgotten, except for the Humour Entertainment games (Freddy Fish, Putt Putt, etc.) The other brand of games I forgot came from developers like "BRODERBUND" and "INFOGRAMES"

I say that because I think it might be helpful in remembering the actual game title. It could have been Broderbund or Infogrames.

So the description (from what I can remember 20 years ago) goes like this.

Game #1 . It's a puzzle/solve game for kids set in the Medieval days. It's like how you imagine any Windows 95 game to be. It's very cartoonish, 2 dimensional. You are to search for a certain amount of gems/rubies, but also solve puzzles and collect spells. There's a village with different activities. There's a witch house where you go inside and use the discovered witchcraft recipes to make spells (I remember making a spell using frogs). one part of the village is a forested area with a lot of trees, inside there are more gems/rubies and a MAZE PUZZLE (which I think was 3D??). Through the maze you collect gems. I forget what the exact purpose/plot of the game is. I just remember it being a medieval game that starts off in a castle with armored knights, where you collect rubies and make magic spells.

The user interface had the amount of rubies you collected displayed at either the top or bottom of the screen. And it would show empty icons of the items you have yet to collect.

Game #2 . I remember this one vividly. It's an educational math game for kids that involves multiplication and division. There's a boy who walks into a candy store and sees there's a contest for whoever can guess how many jellybeans are in a jar. They win a prize I forget what it was. He then goes around with a calculator and I remember there being a treehouse with more math games. There were a lot of characters that you could interact with and they help you throughout to solve the activities. The boy wore glasses with brown/black hair. I think he had a dog? Not sure. I remember he would walk around with a calculator.

This was really hard for me to explain something from when I was only 8 years old. but those are just 2 games that have been gnawing at my mind for decades. I wish I could take the images out my brain and paste it on here lol.

Saara Moh'd:
Hi Hi everyone, need Urgent Help (!) finding this jewel game for pc. It was around 90's I believe. It would start with shape outlines you'd have to fill with different kinds of gems/jewels, then gradually it would move up and shapes would get bigger/more intricate and you'd have to fill an animal outline instead of a basic shape. The jewels you picked for the shape moved in a constant line at the bottom of the screen, had a black background.

Pleasee help if anyone remembers, please please.

I think im looking for the same game as you!!!

Is there someone who knows or could help find it??

Greetings, i am trying to remember an old mac game, late 80s early 90s. I had a mac performa 560. The game was on a 3.5in floppy. Ill describe the things i recall. Point and click game with like poor photo realistic graphics at first, you begin in your bedroomplaying as like a teenager, everything is black and white. You move thru the rooms in the house, i remember a annoying little brothers room, also a bathroom. Eventually you fall asleep and wake up to everything in color, and more cartoony, your still in your bedroom but now everything has changed, like If you go back in that bathroom there is a tentacle monster (or something) in the toilet now. After you leave the house, i remember there is a wolf/fox guy you need to get a fake ID from, also i rememebr like a giant government office of hallways with identical doors, and some alien looking guys working behind the desk. I never got very far in the game, but its haunted me for years, hope you can help me track down the name, thanks in advance!

Hey!

Looking for a game maybe somewhere around 2000, it was a man who started in a jungle maybe in stone age, and as u completed levels, u moved forward in time, like you were in the dark middle age fighting with knights etc. The guy wore a yellow jumpsuit maybe, not sure if it's enough information, but i am hoping.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: found it, it is Time Commando
