I'm looking for a game for the original xbox. It was featured on the Official Xbox Magazine Demo Disc 37, 45, or 50, I don't remember which one. You play as a green dinosaur, there are aliens and some of them have giant forks, when they die they turn to bubbles, and I think the objective was to defeat all of the aliens. Anyone know what game I'm talking about?

That was probably Dino and Aliens.

That is it, thanks!

Hi all,
I remember playing a maze or top down game where you have to consume/collect all of the red apples on the screen to complete the level. You're a little guy that moves around, and if you go underneath a block/rock and move downward, the rock squashes you and you die. But if you move across, the block/rock falls and you can keep going. I played this game on Windows (possibly my parent's laptop, but not sure).

Thanks!!

Sounds like a Mr. Do! game. =)

Hello, I need to know the name of a game that I played in mid 2002/2004, in which I was basically a character that dragged parts in a game, had carnivorous plants and bombs. Kind of like a bomberman.

Apples, pigs, and swinging in trees, you say? Maybe Rocket Knight Adventures?

I have a few late 90's/early 2000's kids games I am going to try my best to describe that I really want to play for a nostalgia kick.

1.) This one had to do with dwarves/gnomes.. I think I downloaded it online or played on a webpage. Not sure. It looked all magical and had weird music. I distinctly remember your dwarf dude holding a lantern, I think. A lot of colours from what I remember. Had a free trial play.

2.) You're a dude walking through a forest, and there are bears you have to fight off. Camp-like setting, amongst other mini games. I think it was an educational one? Aerial view point style.

That's all I can think of for now!!

1. It was a 2D game I played in 2005-2006. I don't know if it was a flashgame or a real exe game.
I remember that you were in a room and there was also a parrot.
I think you controlled the parrot yourself. There was a person in the room and you had to steal items with the parrot and put them in your cage without getting caught.
NEVERMIND I found it: Polly the Kleptomaniac Parrot

2. I'm looking for a small flashgame that I played 2005-2006.
In front of you stood a guy whose face and hairstyle could be changed.
And you could punch this guy, set him on fire and do other things with him.
I think he was complaining in French when you punched him? But I'm not sure, maybe it was English but I couldn't speak English at that time.

Hi thank you but no that's not it , I keep trying to think I don't know if I'm getting confused but when I think of the butterflies I think bread but I might be wrong lol

Hello I'm searching for a game I played on the ps2, it was a turn based RPG in 3D, I remember in your group you had a boy and a girl whose magic was singing and they refer to her as a "diva". I remember that the story was about the fight about two gods and the diva was from one side, and there was another diva on the opposite side. The game has overworld where you can walk around and I only find in the internet Ar Tonelico and it isn't that! It was more like a Final fantasy X combat system. I also remember the boy is a soldier of a sort and discovers the girl in a forest in the beginning, so they go to the nearest town with her and the town gets attacked by soldiers, like a war. Hope someone helps me.

Hello y'all, I was browsing through the internet when suddenly and randomly I thought about some games I used to play before, but I kinda forgotten until now. I kinda remembered the game mechanic, but I'm not so sure about it either. Also, so sorry if my English is a bit hard to understand, because English isn't my first language.

So the game goes on like this :
-It's like a building tycoon sort of game, where you have lots to build your houses on.
-It's point and click, or if it isn't it's most likely a casual game with that sort of vibe on it.
-There are types of buildings you can build on the lots. I only remembered the cheapest building, and it's called a cottage (in-game name afaik).
-The graphics were not that great.
-The "map" consists of some simple grass and roads, near the roads are the lots where you can build your houses.
-In later stages, there will be already-built houses on the lots, but they're most likely broken. You can purchase them and fix them.
-If you decide to build/repair a certain lot/house, a hardhat will go from outside of the screen to the designated lot/house, and after the task is complete that hardhat will leave the screen by going outside of the screen again. (hardhats only travel on the roads)
-There's multiple versions of the games, afaik. One's the normal one and the another one I remembered emphasizes on repairing actual built houses. Or could you build your own houses too there? I don't remember. Had something along the lines of "electricity" on it.
-There's several gameplay style to it, I think. Like sandbox and missions.

Another one:
-A game about making something along the lines of a theme park?
-There's the sort of tycoon vibe to it too
-I forgot what you actually have to build, but aside of the main builds you can also build some kind of stalls, stands, or shops. I remembered there's one stand which roof's colour is customizeable.
-It's a fairly simple game, point and click too afaik.
-you can edit the ground contour, and even the type of it. You can also build pathways from various materials.

Sorry for being so long and going around. I typed whatever I can remember, right on point, so there's probably mixed up informations and details. Thank you for whoever took the time to search for the game I wanted.

EDIT : Remembered another one, this time it's a hidden object game.
-The game tells a story about hidden catacombs below a city.
-There will be minigames, the one I remember is about an egyptian statue's scale, and another one where we need to fix a certain wiring on a display case to reveal some stuff up.
-it has an egyptian vibe to it.
EDIT 2: Found this one. It's Curse of the Pharaoh: Tears of Sekhmet

thanks

Could it be Build-a-Lot 4: Power Source?

thats all i can say.. all what i have in mind is the SMILEY FACE as an extra life...

I have been looking for a game from my childhood, it was a first person 3d action game with a very dark and spooky atmosphere. You were in some kind of medieval gloomy city and I believe the first boss was floating and had tentacles or some things. I was very new at English at the time, but I believe there was something about a plague or infection.

The graphics were pretty bad, but it was still 3d, so I guess it was from somewhere in the 90s

It sounds a little bit like "Grandia 2" (2000) but just not quite.
I think I might have played the game as well but can't remember either.

Hi everybody.. Can someone help me with this game... Its an old one like i remember playing it in 2010 or something... It started from a village... A man with a sword and some powers like storm was allotted.. It had to kill some wolves which were shown eating a man in a flashback... It had to kill some weird bloody zombie people later on... I remeber a plot in some place full of books and bloody people... It used some potion of blue and red colour for power and something... It also had a female character with the same story... Later on in the game it had to solve some puzzles so move forward on like stepping on blocks which lighted up when stepped on it... It had to be a certain pattern for us to move next... I only remember this much... I think it name had a hunter in it... But not sure... Can anyone help me please?

I remember playing this game when I was 9 y/o, where you can choose between 4 creatures *which i remembered they look like fishes or snails. each character had a different color but same shape/image were red, blue, green and yellow all of them had colored dots* you had to color the square floor tiles by "walking on their borders/roam around them" to make them match the color of your character, and i think the person who colors the most tiles wins *idk*. it was colorful and had some nice styled arenas. That's the only thing I can remember about the game. please help me find it its been 3 years for me trying to remember it.

I think that's The Witcher (the wolves come in at 1:52:40 in the video I linked). =)

This is going to be a vague one but I've spent years trying to find this game! It was a PC game I played in the late 90s/early 00s as far as I can remember, it might have been a Windows 98 game. It was a kid's educational game set in a space station/space, with cartoon human-like aliens as the main characters. I remember the main character having some sort of hoverboard? That's all I can remember, not been able to find it for years!

Hi, I remember playing this game in the early 2000s, on my PC. It was a simple isometric 3D shooter. The ship (or the vehicle) was able to move only in 2D (left, right, forward and back) and it was hovering above the scrolling ground. The ground was always moving toward the user, like the scrolling text of STAR WARS, but in reverse :)
The enemies were robots, or other ships. I don't think there were creatures or aliens, but I am not 100% sure.
It was a survival shooter, I don't think there were levels or an endgame, definelty no bosses. You were trying to get a better score, and that was it.
I remember that in the game folder the README contained an hi-score of one of the programmers, and I could never beat it.

Theme park tycoon or RollerCoaster Tycoon maybe?

I'm trying to remember this PC game from around the mid to late 90's. It was a first person kind of game, but it wasn't a typical shooter. I think it started with a train wreck? Then at some point, you were at an abandoned carnival and you had to try and putt a decapitated head into a hole, or something like that. Maybe you had to toss the head into the right hole? It was a horror type game, and your character would occasionally hum the first lines of "Strangers in the Night".

2. Second game is just a scrap in memory, it was very similar to StarCraft graphics but slightly worse. The only this I remember that I was controling some kind of dragonfly-shaped plane and then landed in a jungle and changed into other mechanical insect.

Was it the one where the ships that survive the battles gain experience and become stronger (and their labels change color)? I think it was called something like of KMD, MDK (not MDK, that is a different game I know)

Hello

I think this was a racing game.So my last memory of this game goes like this : i played it on pc year was 2000 or 20001-2004 i think and the game featured robotic characters who had a sphere or ball instead of feet and you would race versus them on an obstacle course,there were also arrow indicators on the map like need for speed or other racing games,when you would jump off an ledge you would quake and distort the ground upon impact.Also i remember two of the levels were called Military Arena and Galaxy arena

Anyone know more info about this game ???

so there's this game that i haven't played in years. since i was a kid. like really young. i've been trying to remember what it was called but for the life of my i can't put my finger on it. so i remember a few parts of it very clearly, first off the game starts off with a storm, in this storm your house gets destroyed and the whole point of the game is to rebuild your house in whatever way you like. the look of the game kinda looked like those old rollercoaster tycoon games, like kinda pixelated but also 3D and only four perspectives you could look from. then i remember you had this huge (or at least it seemed huge to me at the time, i might be remembering that wrong or exaggerated it as a kid) overworld that you could travel through by car or boat. they were pretty hard to use and you could crash pretty easily. and every time you did your main character would say something along the lines of "oops". i also remember two distinctive parts of the game: the first one was where you helped out an old couple at a diner by bringing them a pump to get water out of their basement from the storm, the second was an old hermit that lives in a cave somewhere pretty far out into the overworld. also there was a mail system that gave you some pieces of furniture and walls for your house.

PS. it is entirely possible that this game is only dutch and as such won't be recognised by anyone who is from another country. i grew up in holland and remember the game being dutch so i don't know if there's an english version. thanks for your time.

I used to play this game when I was a kid. It was a game from the 90s, I think it was from a kids magazine. It's a PC game and there was animals in the game that could talk. There were tasks to clean the park and the swamp. There was a rabbit that was wearing a cap, a ginger cat, a dog and I think there was a zebra.

A first person shooter where you could turn I to a zombie for a temporary melee damage attack but it was on a timer and you would go back to normal and have to keep using your gun, this was the main feature in the game and there was even a free for all multiplayer mode where you could play with other people (i think you could play it online but I may be remembering fighting bots) It was a game I played around 2007-2010 it was I think on ps3 but could have been ps2

That sounds like the cast of Money Town. =)

I need help remembering a game I played around 1999-2001 for one of the Sega systems. Its an on rail 3rd person game. Almost like Star Fox 64 or panzer dragoon. I remember the first level and the second level. Your riding what I think was a dragon in the snow I believe? Then you fight this big ship from the rear. After that the next level took place in the jungle. If anyone can help it?d be much appreciated =}

Yeah it isn't that one, it had better graphics than grandia.

hey, im looking for a game I played in the late 90s I think, its an sci-fi shooter/rpt thingy, level based. you run around shooting up this alien facility, and beteween levels, you can upgrade your weapons and armors in different ways(If I remember correctly)

Im not sure if its 3rd person or first person.

edit: oh and its a PC game :)

So I used to play a PC game (Windows 98) where basically you were driving around with trucks like Scania, Man, Volvo ect. There was a garage (main menu) were you could select the trucks and in order to choose the courses/ scenarios you've wanted to drive on you had to drive around inside the garage. The trucks also had trailers. There was a course where you were driving in a mountain area, there was a gravel shortcut in this mountain area with a totaled car in it. And you could also play with racing Rigs on racing courses. This is driving me mad, hope someone could help me...
