So my sister and I are looking for a game we played when we were younger. We played in the 2000s but it could have been released in the 90s, not much earlier. It was on the PC and although I can't remember much of it, it might have looked like Mahjong in some way but nothing comes up when I search Mahjong type games. I know that dragons were involved but lightly, and there was no real story, it was a casual game. I also remember a real life element that might have been part of it? My sister reminded me that there were cards or game boards either in the game case or in a seperate folder/box. Other than that I don't have much to go off of.

My sister says there might have been gems involved in the game but I don't remember that so I can't vouch for it. I think I remember there being a cutscene of a dragon flying and then landing on a rock before the game starts, but I might just be making that up. We also live in Quebec Canada so worst case scenario it was an exclusively French game that could only be remembered by locals?.

We'd love to know what the game is called!

I have a game that as I remembered, I played it a long time ago, around ten years ago maybe?
And the game is about you playing as a girl, and you taking care a dog (you can choose the dog from various breeds) and then you give the dog a food, bath, and take for a walk, I remember this is a Japanese game because when we bathe the dog, it's gives you a CG and the CG is cute
And also, when we give the dog a food, as far as my memory served right, there's a three kinds of food that we can give and those food give you different mood for the dog, also the girl we played as is control-able while we in the house
Then, when we give the dog a walk, there's kinda like a mini-game on it where you can stop by in a store, buy some food supply and dress up your dog
That as far as I can remember, I'd love to know what the name of the game because I wanted to play it again!

Hi all! I'm looking for a game I used to play in the early to mid-2000s. I think it was a downloadable game for PC. I think the plot of the game was that a new virus had broken out, and you had to identify the virus and find a cure for it by solving various puzzles. For example, I think one puzzle involved matching, like, antigens or pathogens or something in a petri dish. The thing I remember most vividly about this game though (and the one thing I'm absolutely certain about) is a puzzle where you're presented with a grid with columns and rows of bees, and you have to figure out which bee is different from its neighbors/the rest of the bees. I think it's because this bee is carrying a strain of the virus or something like that? But I VIVIDLY remember the bees. The animation style was somewhat cartoonish; i.e., not hyperrealistic or 3D. Googling has been absolutely no help, and I'm starting to think this was a super obscure game that my parents found in the recesses of the Internet. Here's hoping one of you might be able to help!

Looking for one purely beat-em up game where you get to play through several levels beating up humonoid and spider robots in hand to hand combat with characters you select. The game allowed for single and co-op which resulted in me playing this a whole lot with my siblings when we were younger.
Characters available at the beginning are two blue humanoid aliens, one male and one female (They follow gender stereotypes of male being strong and buff and female being lithe and agile).
Eventually you face the first boss which is an agile and skinny looking robot that "joins" the two aliens in the story which unlocks his character to select for the rest of the game. final boss is a big bulky robot that is also availible for selection on subsequent runs through the game once it is beaten and the game completed.
Game mechanics I remember that they have standard fighting game ones with life bar and energy for moves and combat includes punches, kicks and grabs.
Also the successful completion of each level leds to an upgrade screen where players can upgrade certain skills. I don't remember them that well I think one dealt with health, another with energy amount, another with energy regeneration or generation (don't remember if characters passively regen energy or they get energy from beating up enemies), and another with damage.
Hope someone can help, Thank you.

Nevermind I found it. Guardians of Altarris, found after deciding to clink a random beat-em up game which just happened to be capoiera fighter 3 where I noticed two of the characters matching my memory of the aliens which had names. So typed in their names and found the game from there. Thank you regardless

This game is like Breakout.It was created before 2009.And it has good particle effect. Some stage of it have special bricks that if you break the brick , it will increase the amount of the ball , extend or micrify the board you control .There are other special brick like you have to hit it twice or the brick you have to hit its top and you can't hit its bottom because it has armor.

Hi !

I'm looking for a game I played when I was a child ( Before 2006 ), it was on PC, it's a FPS ( or maybe a TPS ) in a place that looked like mars but it's in another planet. It envolves a girl that you must kill but has big powers ( she can fly ). The world is pretty big and there was some blue plasma guns I think... Anyway if any of you have a hint, I would be glad :)

Have a nice day !

It's this old business tycoon from the 90s where you started in the early 1900s (maybe the 20s?) and had to fill a town's street with shops (restaurant, jewelry, shopping mall, etc), except in other streets some shops would perform better than others (jewelry sold more in rich neighborhoods, per example). Over time you'd advance in years (60s, 70s, 80s up to I think "futuristic" 2000s) and as you did, you'd unlock new kinds of shops, upgrades for 'em, some shops would lose popularity and you could even spread your empire to other streets of town. It had a pretty good depth for such an old game, and I'd like to play it again sometimes.

HELP! I am trying to figure out some games I played in the 90's. I have my sister going nuts and my friend. This is the list that we figured out so far and maybe reading them it will jog your memory in what area we played our games.
Chips Challenge, Crystal Caves, Aladdin, Aquanoid, Commander Keen, Hocus Pocus, Cosmo's Cosmic Adventures, Bloc-Man.

We are still missing 3 and they've abandoned me. I remember them being on floppy disc for one. My descriptions are going to be insanely vague and I'm sorry for that.

This one, the only clue I can give you is searching Chuckie Egg. That is not the game I am looking for, but the color and ladders sparked a memory of a game similar to that. I literally don't remember anything other than going up and down ladders for what ever purpose. No, it's not Donkey Kong.

There's another one that I feel is similar to commander keen where you have a map to walk to each level. I picture trees and that's about it. Same concept of the game, but different layout. I feel with enough time I can figure that one out on my own.

The last one no one remembers except me. I feel it was in space, but you had this platforms you had to stay on. I don't know if you're playing as a ball, or a car, or literally nothing. But I remember it being colorful (I think) and you just had to stay on the platform. The reason I say space is because the platforms are colorful and the background is dark in my head.

If anyone can figure these games out with my insanely vague descriptions I will be insanely impressed. I'm going in the attic soon to try and find those damn floppy disc.

I remember playing a game on my old computer where you were in a anime kind of world, and you fought monsters. I remember that all the monsters were bright colours and it was a MMO game.
You had to complete quests and such. I feel like I remember the game starting with a "D" and a girl standing on the cover with monsters in the back. It was on an ad on a site I was on a long while ago, but I just can't remember the name of it.
Does anyone happen to know it? (:

First one might be Aldo's Adventure.

DX-Ball. If not, search for Arkanoid games.

Dragon Quest X? Aura Kingdom? TERA: Rising?

Guys, please, I am searching for this game for a lot of time but I cannot find it, it is old, shooter (as far as I can tell, I as 10-12 yo) and you fought something with a team, after you play a little the character you were playing dies, and so, your spirit can now possess the others from the team, anyone have an Ideea? I played it on PC, and I am not sure if this is from this game but I think in that team was a girl using a katana and pistol (dual wielding them in the same time)

Pretty sure that's Clive Barker's Jericho. =)

Sounds like Kaan: Barbarian's Blade. =)

Wow! That's it, thank you!

Hi,
I hope someone can help me out with an old arcade game from the 80s. During lunch we often visited this convenience store to play this _platformer_ but I can't remember the name.

The protagonist was a young dude, I think he was a ninja (no mask) but I'm not sure. The game starts out as follows: He is riding a motorbike going to the right. Then he shoots out a fireball of some sort and it flies very fast. The camera follows the fireball and it hits some entrance to a bunker which destroys it. Immediately out comes a group of soldiers. The game then zips back to the left to our hero. He is no longer on the motorbike but on foot. From here he battles his way to the entrance. I think it was only punches and kicks.

The first boss was tall and in some sort of armor. Soon after you reach him he tosses his cape behind him. That's basically all I remember.

Does any of that ring a bell with anyone? I do remember someone showing me this game on the MAME emulator many years ago. Alas, I don't remember the name!

Please and thank you!
Mark

i remember playing this in the early 2000s there is a little dude you have to get back to his rocketship in one of the scenes he's smoking a hookah I know this game has been discussed on this form before but when I tred different search strings I didn't find what I was looking for

Hello, I am new to this page, so I'll make it quick.
I remember playing a game about 7-10 years ago, in my dad's computer. Back then I was about 6-9 years old. In this game, which I believe was online, was about two friends/animals, which had adventures. The only scenario I recall from this game had to do with snow, and in a certain part you were a polar bear who had to run from a big rock. It wasn't a long game, definitely less than 30 minutes, but I have tried to find it for many years, and I still can't. If anyone knows something about this game or finds it, please let me know. I will be more than thankful. Any questions, I'll answer them. Thanks in advanced.
PS: I am not a native English speaker, please forgive my spelling mistakes :)

Is this an arcade game or home system?

Initially it sounded a bit like Toe Jam and Earl for the Sega Genesis.

I am searching a horror game that I saw a clip/trailer of on a youtube livesteam, but don't know the name of it. From what I remember from the video, the game seem to look a bit outdated like the graphics could had been from a old PC or PS2 game. It shows a blonde hair woman in a white sweater, searching for a missing sister, and at the end of video was a creature leaving from a small cabin.

Sorry for not giving much details but that is all I remember. :(

It's not that old, but maybe Until Dawn?

The only one that comes to mind is Dofus, which is related to another MMO, Wakfu.

Thank you so much!! <3

Hello peps!
First of all, I want to thank all the creators and owners of the website and all the developers who are working 200% to ensure we could enjoy this site to the fullest! :)

Let's start our quest of discovering the game xD


I played it back in '07 on Windows '98 if I remember correctly. It was on cd with lots of other games like Monkey Island, Doom and so. Game was something like RPG, action-adventure game (left mouse click was action engagement like walking, interraction and so) where you start with a character (I think it was some kind of a wizard or some fighter?) in a dark room. Your goal is to find the key and leave the house.You can freely explore some tunnel-ish areas in the house but eventually you are going out. Outside map (had lots of trees) is big and you can freely explore. Map is covered in black fog which cleares once you cross the area. I think first few monsters you encounter are some kind of rats/spiders which you battle when you step on them and fight sequence is loaded. If I remember correctly, fight is somehow turn-based....and monsters can kill you pretty easy (Haven't gotten much farther so dunno how it is later). Not sure what else to mention, screen wasnt cartoonish, pixelated character but more like normal, dont know how to explain...
I am sorry if it doesnt make sense, but I have exact picture of the game in my head, but dont know what else to say. If I get some information I will post them here. I wish to play this game again.

Hey guys, so remember this game i think it was in the 90s, i dont remember if it was for the playstation or an arcade game for NEO GEO.
I only remember you starting out as a little purple demon, possibly blue it had big ears and i think little wings, and you start out with a water fountain in front of you,
and up further there is a mansion and i think it was haunted, it had monsters insdie and puzzle you had to go through. I remember
going in through the door to the left on the second floor you go in and there was no floor, the tiles were all over the place and you had to jump on them to go though. in that room there was also a flying monster like a clown shaped like a ball. the whole game was dark and eerie looking but really fun, and i did look into Ao Oni and its not it.

i played a strategy game similar to Tiberium Essence there was a robotic tank with four cannon like on its head and i was against insects or was it alliens iam going crazy i need to know

Solved : found that shit (Emperor: battle for dune)

Hello. I'm looking for a game. It was a Windows game with 2D side view.
It looks something like this: https://imgur.com/ULxfWTR

The game itself is very simple. It was a game that only destroying white spheres looks like jellyfish appeared from the right side of the screen. The more catch, the more pop out. There was one bug that I remembered. If you go forward with a shot, the more and more balls appeared tremendeously. Sorry but I don't know the release date. I played it 20 years ago. Thank you.

No...It wasn't that. :(

Hey guys!

I am looking for a game that I played a long time ago. It was called "Block Ball" or something like that but I can't seem to find it.
The game was about rolling a ball around the level searching for keys and getting to the exit. The ball itself was orange with two black stripes it left a red trail behind it. The ball could also roll on some walls if I remember correctly.

Thanks in advance! :D

Oh my god it is! thank you so much! after 15 years of looking :)

Hello! I have a few games I was hoping someone might be able to help me find!
1. I was wondering about this one game I recall playing back in elementary school on the computer. It was one of those typing games, you know, the kinds used to trick kids into learning how to type (lol). It had a variety of typing minigames, unfortunately I can only really recall one off the top of my head. It was a game where you had to type these words and to clear sand off of Santa's time machine (don't even ask, it was bizarre.) I remember having a lot of fun with it.
2. It's another computer game, I think it was one of the Reader Rabbits but I can't remember which. I've tried searching for it but couldn't find it. It has several games you can play and involves winning tickets to use to get on a train or something. There were several animals, each with their own game. One of the games was a connect-the-dots, another was... cooking, maybe? Sorry, it's a very vague memory, I know. Also, I don't know if it's the same game or not but I remember a Reader Rabbit game (at least I think it was Reader Rabbit) in which you had a merry-go-round horse that stopped moving, it was turned to stone or something, and you had to find/put together the key that would unfreeze the horse.
3. I remember another computer game I really liked and thought was a lot of fun, it was this game with (again) several activities you could do. One was baking cookies, in which you mixed together the right number of each ingredient and then got to choose a cookie cutter and cut out the cookies and had to try cut out as many as you could. Some of the cookie cutter shapes were a gingerbread man, a star, etc. Then you could decorate the cookies, I think, with sprinkles and other stuff. There were other stuff involved, too, and a plotline about a kingdom or something that needed saving?
4. I remember this one game my brother played that scared the crap outta me as a kid. All I remember is in the opening scene(s) there were these two kids, a boy and a girl, and they were spying on some monsters or something in this abandoned house or whatever. But then, suddenly, one or both of the kids were grabbed from behind and kidnapped by one of the monsters and (presumably) you had to rescue them or escape (I can't remember if you played as the two kids or not.)
5. And lastly, I only very vaguely recall another game that scared the crap outta me as a kid, so much so I couldn't keep playing. It was rated M (don't ask) and it started off with your character as this mansion party or something? But then there was a cutscene showing how this mutagenic stuff or maybe it was a virus or something that got into the sewers and infected all the rats so their eyes glowed this creepy red and I guess turned violent, biting people and spreading the disease(?) Next thing you know, something happens and there's a huge whole in the floor of the mansion and everything is chaos with a bunch of people dying. If anyone could tell me the name of any of these games, I'd be eternally grateful!
