2 games 1 on PC and 1 on console

PC game where you play as a yellow submarine you shoot stuff and fishes your enemies are the sharks and the octopus, if you die the young submarine pilot comes out in some terrified arts showing the fishes killing him somehow.
it's a very old game thanks god i just recalled it, and i have no idea what it's called

the other game on console is about you playing as the imaginary friend of some young girl with family problems, you play as a lady in black you help the girl solve puzzles collect stuff, and you discover that her parents are having some problems with some people.
you never see anyone because they are only shown as shadows.

does anyone know the names of these both games?

Hello~

This is a long shot after sifting through the list of PS1 games available.
There was this Japanese Playstation game that was multiplayer and had a bunch of mini games to play. I've already look at the Bishi Bashi Series and the Incredible Crisis game as well, but none was the one I was looking for, albeit they are still fun to play.
What I remember from the game is for one of the mini games, you play as a panda or some animal, and using the analog stick or going in a circle on the D-pad, you control their arms to do a "high-five" like gesture; the goal of the mini game was to do as many of those within the time limit.
Another game was stopping the clock as close to the time that was displayed.
From my recollection, the artwork isn't as cartoony as BishiBashi; but it was similar in a way that it didn't have a storyline per se.

Thank you~

Edit: Found the game! It's called Shinri 2 - it is a psychological quiz game that had mini games as well

I played this game but I can't remember the name.
It was trippy/psychedelic-like. The only things I rememerber that it was in a kids playroom and you were the kid/baby. The environment was oversized and you were the kid (first person), solving puzzles. One puzzle was with a carousel and some creepy teddybear who was following you. I coudn't play the game for long cause it maked me nauseous. But I want to play it again now. I think it was slightly horror.

Among the sleep perhaps?

No that's not the one. You were trapped as a kid in the playroom and colors were more trippy, not realistic. But thanks anyway!

Hello World,

I'm hoping you nice people will be able to help me find this game, but I doubt it since I really don't remember much about it.
One thing I'm certain of is that it was an old game, maybe even a dos game(or maybe not, I do think I played it under windows but maybe it's just that it was in the old days when you could still run dos games in windows by simply double clicking their exe).
The perspective was top-down similar to Dark Sun Shattered Lands, but don't quote me on that, but I think you could see the entire map in the game window, not just immediate surroundings like in Dark Sun. I remember playing this desert map, where you controlled this character and I was going around(I think every move you took was a turn, so not actually running around, but this might just be my memory playing tricks on me...) killing golems and gargoyles or trying to, the game was quite hard from what I remember(or maybe I just sucked at it). There where no base building elements I don't think, or maybe I just never got to them....

Anyway basically old game, top down view on a desert map going around killing gargoyles/golems, any ideas, please?

Thank you.

Hey, so, there is this game I used to play as a child but I can't find it. It came on a CD with a yellow and black nuclear sign from some kind of computer-related magazine I think. Some things I can still remember:

-Name was something like war strike, or world war.
-It definitely wasn't a DOS game, it ran under a Windows 98.
-You were looking at a battlefield from an isometric view.
-Player was blue, computer (enemy) was green.
-It was a strategic game where you had to destroy enemy base, or palace. Both players had UAV, which had multiple purposes. You could conquer new factories or destroy enemy vehicles with it.
-Level of tanks that were produced by factories depended on the level of the factories, I think the highest level was 3 or 4. There were also those mechanical two-legged robots with guns, similar to AT-ST from Star Wars.

Thanks in advance for any clues or tips.

Hello! I hope someone can help, I?ve looked thru old posts but no one seems to be trying to find the same game. It was an old point and click pc game that came on a CD-rom, between the years of 1995-2000 is my best guess. The game itself is hard to explain into key words, more so parts of the game are what me and my brother can recall.

You play as a young boy moving thru a big house/mansion, collecting items, helping your weird family by doing weird activities all for the purpose of serving everyone a supper in the end. Everything was also pretty colourful and cartoonish.

A few activities we remember.
One involved seperating a pizza accordingly amongst certain members of the family. Self explanatory, but to win you had to make sure every one had a decent ?cut? of pizza based on clues. I also remember it including the angles themselves, possibly for harder difficulties?

Another involved you playing an odd navigation game in your bathtub, with you being on a rubber floatation device? It was on a grid like setting, involving one move at a time or something similar. Again at higher difficulties, was based on directions on a compass.

One that we partially remember but can?t remember to the reason why you would, is a game based in a fridge with a cow asking you to convert measurements of milk between cups/liters/quarts/gallons. I can somewhat remember it being used in a recipe, to make a cake? For the supper?

We can also somewhat remember the last of the game being as followed: All your family that you?ve helped are sitting around a dinner table, you have to pick placements/food, according to what they want based on clues provided?

I really hope we could provide enough information, and we?ve ran out of ideas on how to search for all the criteria. I?m really hoping someone could help us uncover this years long search.
Thanks again for your time and help.

Bump, hoping someone can please help. I've even noticed other people from long ago asking for the same game and no answer. The boy has orange hair, which is a feature I didn't remember before.

I am looking for a RTS game.
I used to play it around 2000
there were 2 different sides
One of the sides had the ability to regen over time and their starting units were archer, a man with a huge stick, and a man with knifes. Later u could get a man with a flying carpet, a bug like creature that can possess an enemy and deal damage over time and at last something like 2-3 headed ladybug. Also they had a defensive defensive building which is a huge crossbow sentry.
Other side had no regen ability, their starter units were pikeman and rifleman. Later u could have men with hammer (kinda big) and at last a dragon (stays on the ground and uses fire breath) Also their baracks look like a hand holding a broken sword (on a bucket?)
After few levels of missions u had to play on maps where meteors land on your buildings and units.
Also when u launch the launcher a dragon appears and flies closer.

PLEASE HELP!!!

There's actually two games I can't remember, and it's honestly driving me crazy (I literally made this account so someone might be able to tell me).

The first one was maybe made in the 90's or the early 2000's. I played it when I was younger and it was on my mom's old computer. My mom said that her dad gave it to her on a disk, but neither of us can remember the name because we just always called it "The Monkey Game" because I was younger and that was easier for me to understand. It was a game where you played different mini games around an island with a volcano in the center of it. The games I can remember are very simple. One of them was one of those cup games where you would find a ball or object under it (except the cups were shells and the object was a pearl). I vaguely remember another one with a crab in it but I don't really remember. I think there were a few other but I cant remember very well. The last and main game in the entire thing was one where you would control this monkey and you would make it swing across vines in the jungle and it would collect bananas and avoid obstacles. I'm pretty sure the main goal of the game was to get to the volcano because I remember getting really excited when I got to that level. I think the game was an older style but it wasn't necessarily completely 8-bit or completely 3D.

The next one I don't really remember,and I only have very vague memories of it, but it still bothers me. It's not necessarily old, but I think I played it around 2010 or so. I'm pretty sure that this one was on a actual website that you logged into and everything. I remember it having sort of a Spore or Wizard 101 vibe. I think it took place on a space ship and you basically lived there(?). I also remember there being little alien pets that you had and took care of. I remember that you traveled through portals or whatever to get to places, and one of them led to another game made by the same company (I think; even if it did, I have literally no memory of that one).

If you know what either or both of these games are called (or even have some kind of idea of what it might be or how to find it) please tell me! Thanks!

I've had this game stuck in my head for a long time and i think it was on the PS2 and i can only remember one mission. this mission you are in a small fighter like spaceship in a third person view and you have to go around and fight other ships and save scientist or spacemen from the surface of the planet, there are also like purple generator that you can destroy i believe, this also all takes place in a red-ish valley and you had omni-directional controls on the camera and plane/spaceship thing. __NEVERMIND__ it was Defender from 2002

Hey, I remember a game in small bits, help. 1) You are a guy wearing a motorcycle helmet. 2) You can switch from being on the floor to being on the ceiling. 3) 2D sidescroller 4) PC Game

1. It was a 2D online game that was detailed
2. You had an apartment where you could place your pets, like goldfish
3. I remember a forest area and a town square with shops
4. One of the shops had a pool inside that was reflective and I think you could buy jewelry or clothes in it

Trying to find an old game on the 360, it's a 2d game (maybe a platformer of sorts?) where you play as viruses/programs, and fight your friends. Other than that I can't really remember much.

Normally I don't use Bing, but since it was the only search engine that ACTUALLY ACKNOWLEDGED BINARY LOGIC SOMEWHAT PROPERLY here's a search link that limits down to around 100 games. That search tries to limit down to PS1, mecha, action games; and seems to work until the last two pages let some non-PS1 games slip in somehow. Still a needle in a haystack, but hopefully the right haystack at least.


I really do miss altaVista...

I remember only that you went into a car game and you had to beat all other cars to get next level and new car.You had option to win with laps against them or demolish them.At the end more you had 3 hard opponents which was 1 big truck, super fast car and demolition car.And when you had all cars you could start again or just play vs random cars(it was against computer not other ppl)

You didnt have to pay for it you could easily just go and play it online.

Can someone know anything about this game? i know its not much information.(racing game)
It was on pc and i played it around 2009=?

Saga: Rage of the Vikings?

Endermite:
Hi!
I am searching a game I played in 2013 on my android phone.
It is a very simple, blocky and colorful game, about an light blue truck.
The truck drives by itself. There is no other cars except for this truck.
The only thing you can do, is to chose, should the truck drive on the left side of the road, in the middle, or on the right side.
There is trash, rocks and snow on the road, and if you hit them, the game will be over.
But there is also power ups on the road. They will turn your truck into a trash cleaner car or snow cleaner and more.
When you have these power up, you can clean the road. But if you hit something you can't clean, your truck will become blue again.
By cleaning the road you will get points.
I hope, someone knows this game. And sorry for my bad English.

Please? Maybe some ideas?

Does anyone here know about an old Windows 98(?) game that some schools had where you controlled a little red robot and you solved puzzles by doing math equations? I remember it being a really pixely sidescroller game with possibly 8-bit graphics, and the robot made sounds when you moved it. The only other thing I distinctly remember is that the final boss was this spinning robot that your sprayed with water in order to beat it. I also believe it had multiplayer where each person took turns. If anyone has any idea, I'd really appreciate it. I really want to track down this game again for nostalgia's sake.

Hello peeps,

I'm looking for a game that I played on a very old and fat looking windows PC around 2007 - 2010ish. I think I remember your character may be a mouse/rat that may or may not be walking on two legs. The mouse/rat character may be green and may be wearing a purple jacket. Could be a normal mouse/rat though. I remember a moment in the game where you would be in a dark room?

My memories about the game are kinda vague but I hope you guys may know what game i'm talking about.

one thing i just remembered it was on console can't remember which one and an approximate time frame for release date it was around destroy all humans one or two plus or minus 3 years

Hi.

Did anyone play a demo of a game where you were in a futuristic arena of some sort and in the arena there was an island, where you had to fight some kind of aliens. It was a top down game, don't know if it was turn based... Maybe i am just imagining thing, idk...

Thanks

Trying to find on old Mech Game I played on a nokia mobile about 10-12 years ago.

Was likely run on Java, you took in a unqiue set of mechs and pilots, explored various maps and completed objects on them. It even had supply pods which could land during missions which would give supplies/upgrades/components.
There were a ton of ways to mix and match, how the story went was up to you and the maps ranged from small to absolutly huge. I still remeber it fondly today :3

I recall It had a crazy scientist dude, your father figures mech gets obliterated, theres a rocket mech with long legs, the art style was very memorable.

Name might have been something like Mechwarrior or the such.
Likely a longshot, but worth trying XD! Props to all those who have contributed to this thread.

EDIT:Blimey me, I actualy found it XD
It's called Armored forces. With a free emulator you can run it on just about any device as well :3
Can be found here: https://java.mob.org/game/armored_forces.html
Playing it atm :3 Boy these games are nostelgic.

Please help me! I played a point and click PC-game like Freddi Fish and Pyjama Sam but it was in a house with monsters. You play with a small character and you can search for items just like in Freddi Fish. I guess the character you play as is a monster of a boy.
That's all I remember.
Please help!

It was a old game (adventure) in NES , every time I fight a monster I get a new weapon
I remember to kill a jungle monster and get a stick
There's a monster kill stage and you get a cloud that I can climb on and fly

Yo help me out please I don't remember much but there was this game I used to play at my one friends house I'm pretty sure it was an RPG but all I remember was if you took to long of goofed around to much you would lose and it would display this picture of a evil wizard laughing with a message that said something like you have fail the evil wizard have taken over the world or something again thank you for any help you may be able to give me

I legit need help, as its been a couple of years since I started to try finding this game again.

A strategy, city builder type game. Came out in the early 2000s, and I remember the cover being green with the 3 available races that you could play with, 1 being humans, one was some kind of insects and the other I don't remember. A particular detail of this game was that you would increase your population and you would get children, which you would be able to see them walking around the town, and you could eventually recruit these children to be workers for your town. The game is not very modern, as the houses and buildings were wood and stone based. As you unlocked certain buildings like the butcher, you would recruit the population and assign them jobs. The human race would be powered by women, where they would be the ones that would hunt and own shops that butcher and candy shop, while men would have less important jobs. Your "city hall" would have the "mayor" in front, which for the human race I remember it being a woman with a white dress and like a crown. The graphics were not great, but it was already modern SimCity style.

If anyone has a clue of this game, please let me know :c I have been trying to google it multiple times and I cant remember the game, its been 3 years or so since I started searching for it, I guess it was not very popular.

I believe that would be an NES adaptation of Journey to the West, Saiyuuki World 2 - Tenjoukai no Majin (localized in Western countries as Whomp'Em).

HOLY MOLY! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! The nations! I saw the game Alien Nations, but it didnt look like it, and didnt know about the sequel. THANK YOU THANK YOU

Here's a very weird one,

As a kid, I got a CD from someone filled with tiny little "games" with funny twists.

To give an idea of the contents of this CD, one of the games was a coffee machine thing, you insert the coin, select your coffee, and then it turns out there was a monkey in the coffee machine and you just drank piss instead of coffee. A silly prank game. Then it says "share with your friends". I already found this one: https://www.salongeek.com/threads/have-a-coffee-break-on-me.16316/

But there is one game that is driving me crazy and I can't find it:

There is a woman showering. You can only see a silhouette of her through the shower curtains. She seems to have nice curves. You can click on the shampoo to put shampoo on her hair, on the brush and the sponge to make her use those. So when you click on the towel to make her step out of the shower, it turns out that it's an ugly ginger man. Maybe a woman, can't remember. It was supposed to be a prank in either way.

Good luck!

Hi, i am looking for a game i played like 5 years ago.
Its was an MMORPG where you would play something like a soldier that fights against aliens which would attack random checkpoints (tower/bases) on the map. Basicly a simple shooter in third vision i think...
The most significant thing i can remember is that you would have the ability to fly with a jetpack or something like that on your feet. Also you could call in drills which would drill for resources while you defend them against monsters of all kind. Before starting to drill you could see how good the area was and what stuff you would most likely get from the drill. When it finished it flew back into the sky. The starting area was in a "city" at a beach, where you would fight against crabs and all kinds of other stuff.
I also think there was something like a class system but i dont really remember.
My only guess for the name was something like "Firefly", but that doesnt seem to be right.
Thanks a lot
