Two games :)

1. This game was downloaded on my computer, and I think it's from msn games, but don't hold me to that. I don't remember the objective of the game, but I do remember it involved tiles hovering in the air and I think you had to hop on each one. There were enemies on the tiles too and it was level based.

2. This one your a turtle underwater and you had to get to the next level by reaching the end. Pretty straight forward.

If you guys could help me, that would be awesome. Thank you so much in advance!

SimTunes?

THANK YOU SO MUCH THATS IT THATS THE ONE THANKANKYYOYUYYHANKTYOU

I'm trying to remember the name of a PC game that I played the demo of in the late 90s. Probably 1998-1999, but possibly before. I'm pretty sure the player character is female and from what I remember, all of the action takes place in a shopping mall setting with a not-quite isometric viewpoint. (It's a fixed camera with human tank controls.) The game is faction-based and you go around taking various assignments that generally involve killing people (innocent or otherwise) and one of the factions calls itself "The Order". They're hooded cultists and end their dialogue with the phrase: "Spread the darkness of The Order!" One of the other unique aspects of the game that I remember is you can get a plasma cannon as a weapon and when you fire it, the bursts of energy set off a small AoE explosion that sets fire to anyone caught in it. That's about all I have for details.

Thanks in advance!

Ahh thank you, that's the second one. Now all I need is the first.

For years my older brother and I have been arguing about these 2 games. We literally haven't been able to come close to finding them for over a decade. Keep in mind that I was probably 5 or 6 at the oldest time I played them, so my memory is extremely limited and my descriptions will most likely be EXTREMELY vague. But if you have a slight idea let me know!

1st game- a PC game I played in the early to mid 2000s, but I am not sure when it came out. Could have very well been the '90s. I don't believe it was a free online game, I'm pretty sure we had a disc for it. Game made for kids set in a creepy haunted mansion. The only thing my brother and I can remember about it was that there was some weird level with Knights, and another level where you had to a fix a grandfather clock. We also recall a level from the basement of the mansion where you had to fix leaky pipes. My brother is convinced that the game was 1. An educational, math game for kids and 2. a Disney game. I'm not convinced it was a Disney game, as I feel like it would have been easier for us to find.

2nd game- even more vague as the first one. I literally have almost no recollection of it except 1. It was a FREE online game meant for kids. KIND OF like the idea of Club Penguin, Toon Town, Poptropica etc. but I don't believe it was that interactive in the sense that I don't believe you could make an avatar, talk to other players, etc. It also seemed like it was for kids a little older than the target age of those games listed. My brother has been convinced for years that it was on a popular website, like Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network, etc, but again I am not convinced as I feel like if it was on sites that popular it would be easier to find. All I know is I recall the platform having mini games, one possibly involving pizza?!?! Again I apologize for this extremely vague description.

Cant Find a game, which I played long long ago.

It's an online (browser possibly) turn based strategy, where 3 players started a map as 3 factions and turns took the resolve once a day. You captures the villages thus expanding your realm. In battle you just positioned troops in slots and they automaticly moved forward to capture the enemy army camp. You coud make unique positioning for every army and didnt take part in the battle.
The match could last for weeks

Hello :) I remember playing a game but i can't remember it's name :D

So...

The game was multiplayer team-based shooter, there was two teams, red and blue, every team has it's own base on the one side of map, the players were robots, or mechs or something like that, players had some kind of "boosters" on their backs, an these boosters could boost your speed or jump so you could "fly" for some short time. I played that game around 2009-2011 i think. It was free, but i don't know if it was browser game, or installed on computer (maybe the mix of both). There were game modes like capture the flag, taem deathmatch and others.

I found similar game (EXTEEL) but it wasn't it...

Can you please help me ? I would really appreciate it...

War World: Tactical Combat? You could also boost in Orion Prelude.. There's also Tribes Vengeance or another game from that series.
It also sounds a little bit like Team Fortress 2, specifically MvM (Mann vs. Machine) mode. Except you don't play as robots, you shoot robots. I'm probably wrong but worth a try, it can't be that easy can it?
Robocraft is too new..

SniperTB:
Hey, I'm still searching for the name of a game form the 90s (?).

In this game you control a catapult/cannon mounted on a castles wall and have to hit targets.
After a few rounds, there where bonus games, like you have to shoot babies at baby bottles or dart arrows at balloons.
The ammunition of the catapult/cannon differed between rocks/balls to rockets and - like above - babies and dart arrows.
I don't remember the exact year and if it was a DOS or Windows game.
Would be great, if someone knows it.

Anyone?

I remember a strategic game (I was playing on win98) in which a team of paint drops (or maybe plasticine) was managed with the aim of defeating other drops of paint and obtaining its powers.
I remember a few powers like the straw and the boxing gloves but there were many others.

I remember a game from over 15 years ago for the pc that involved a live action male character trapped in an animated world, i believe it was an adventure game and the music was quite pleasant

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.

I used to play this game with Warcraft / Starcraft gameplay but was a Ninja. I think the main character was named Kenshin, Kenji. Does anybody remember the name? I think it was released around 1998 or later. Thank you!

If by "gameplay" you're referring to the isometric perspective, the game Ninja: Shadow of Darkness which came out in 1998 might be what you're looking for. I can't think of any ninja-themed RTS games.

That is likely Toonstruck.

OMG, my husband found it for me!! It's BATTLE REALMS, you guys! Thank you!

Hi. Me again. I'm sure I played this game in the years 2012-2017. If you want to know the specifics of the game I am looking for, please see my other posts. I'm just going to keep checking back and annoying you guys until I either get a promising answer or I get banned from the site.

1)-

-This was a PC strategy game based somewhere other than earth, maybe in some other planet with futuristic weapons and units
-Had 2 factions if I remember correctly and you could select one before starting the campaign
-Had base building, resource gathering, all through machine like units.
-There were defense towers which if build near to each other, got connected automatically through lasers so that enemies couldn't enter your base if your base was surrounded by these defense towers.
-Flying units who shot lasers, land units, all had armors and stuff and looked futuristic, just like machines and robots.
-The environment was pretty plain and had some mountains and trees and terrain was up and down and stuff but didn't look like earth.
-Base building was an integral part and had all barracks and stuff etc.

Could be Perimeter and/or it's expansion Perimeter: Emperors Testament, maybe?
Though that has three factions as well..

Thank You. I was able to find the game. It was Dark Reign 2 :)

Hi guys,

I am really trying to remember the name of 2 old strategy games. I remember the gameplay and stuff but not the name. Both are from early 2000's time may be between 1999-2005 time and both are PC games.

1)-

-This was a PC strategy game based somewhere other than earth, maybe in some other planet with futuristic weapons and units
-Had 2 factions if I remember correctly and you could select one before starting the campaign
-Had base building, resource gathering, all through machine like units.

-The environment was pretty plain and had some mountains and trees and terrain was up and down and stuff but didn't look like earth.
-Base building was an integral part and had all barracks and stuff etc.

2)-

-This game was an army building strategy game somewhat like age of empires 2 but a little advanced.
-Had a Chinese theme to it.
-Had resource gathering etc by going into mines in mountains.
-Every town had a huge entry wall, gave the feeling of a castle more than a town.
-They had famines and diseases also if I remember correctly and you had to research to cancel the effects of these natural calamities.
-For attacking others you had to go out of the town wall and till the edge of the map till you arrive into a new area with a new minimap and then go into the opponent's castle area which looks similar to your castle/town with a huge wall as well.
-It was just a single CD game.
-I think the name had the word "Gold" or "golden" in it but I am not sure.

Please let me know if anyone had played similar games. I would thank u from the bottom of my heart and will pray for you. :)

Thank You everyone. I did a LOT of research and was able to find both the games.

Dark Reign 2
Fate of the Dragon.

Thanks everyone who helped :)

Hey everyone,

I'm not sure if anyone will remember this game, but it was a browser based game in the mid 90's.
It was a dungeon game that had a grid map(think battleship) and each box was a new location that had items or weapons.
I think the goal of the game was to find a key to a lair and fight a final boss.
Maybe the games easier to find than I remember, but it's literally been irking me for years..

Cheers!

Im not sure this game still exist or not... but I really hope it still does cos it's kindna a memento for my childhood.

So it's a 2D web game, you could chose your weapon between Axe, Sword or Dagger, all you do is to fight your way up a tower, which you will encounter different monsters, and a boss on every 5 (as I remember) floors.
If you die, your character truly dies and you have to start from floor 1.
I believe name of this game starts with "T" , if I remember correctly.

craving for help

Guys, any luck?

Hi guys
-this was an old Shockwave.com game (I remember playing Redline Rumble around the same time)
-the closest thing to it that I could find is this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=md0GKJ7gAmA
-the game from the video closely resembles the one I'm looking for, however:
-the one I'm looking for had better art style - it had charming cartoony style (vehicles, buildings - everything)
-the environment was some kind of rural farm area
-the items that had to be delivered varied in size, weight and count, but all of them realistically bounced around, could break, and could also pop out of the pick up truck (it had wooden bed AFAIR)
-I'm not sure but I think the truck was upgradeable
-there was a big arrow showing you the destination directly (like a compass), but you still had to know the best route

I miss that game and I wonder if there's any way to play it again. Also - do you know if there's a place where I could access (online or for download - I don't care, I just wanna play those games again) any of those old shockwave games, like for example the redline rumble series?

EDIT: I can't quite believe I found it, but using wayback machine to browse Shockwave.com I found it after some digging. It's called "The Mad Courier" but I can't find a way to play it - I'd be glad if you could help me with that.

This is an old PC Disc game which is very similar to TRINE.

Hi guys, I'm looking for a game that I played when I was young. It was a side-scrolling CD game on PC platform in the year of 2000s may be(or 1995-2000), actually I don't know about the release date of it. Just because of the graphic design doesn't look like the quality made in 21st century.

I've tried my best to remember most of the game details but I cant remember the name of it. Yeah its totally ridiculous that I remember lots of details besides the game name.

The starting animation is talking about a man was locked in a tower in the sky, a mage(maybe?) casted magic to free him.

Although the game is side-scrolling game, it looks like 2.5D. The background is 2D picture but your character and the enemies are 3D image. It is a kind of adventure game, and you have a health bar and mana bar on the top left hand corner.

In the game you can choose 3 types of character, a young man with sword, a young girl with staff and a man using two-handed axe.
I remember some of the default button which are "Z" and "X", "Z" is using a light attack and "X" is a heavy attack.
There are several types of magic you can use, fire , ice, lightning and recovery.
Each type of magic divided into 5 levels, I only remember fire and ice.

Fire L1: Single fire ball drop on a single enemy (Auto targeting to nearby enemy)
Fire L2: Fire burning on the left side of right side (depends on character facing direction)
Fire L3: Lava blast at all enemies position
Fire L4: Large explosion (Area of effect)
Fire L5: Fire from the fire phoenix (Area of effect)
Ice L1: Ice Spikes appear at a single enemy's postion (Auto targeting to nearby enemy)
Ice L2: Ice Spikes appear at all enemies' position
Ice L3: Ice wall created on the left side of right side (depends on character facing direction)
Ice L4: Ice Storm (Area of effect)
Ice L5: Ice Age (Area of effect)

And here are the stage and the boss that I try my best to remember.
Stage 1 - Forest, boss: rock golem
Stage 2 - Floor 1 , I forgot what that thing is.
Stage 3 - Below 1, boss: ice drake
Stage 4 - Below 2, boss: 2 ghost (looks like female) share 1 BOSS health bar
Stage 5 - Below 3, boss: skeleton mage(necromancer)
**And this boss I think it is a main enemy of the game because my character need to talk to him before battle.
Stage 6 - Floor 2, boss: a flying, upper body, large skeleton with both scythe-shaded hand(hand bone)
**Actually it looks like a skeleton reaper, but it is flying and only have upper body
Stage 7 - Floor 3, boss: fire drake
Stage 8 - Below 4 , I reach to the middle only.

One more thing there are 5 different BGM in the game. Each of them is used for Stage1-5 respectively. And Stage 6 use the first BGM and so on.
I just only remember the stage name and the last stage that I reached is 8.
Please help me with this, it is a memory for me and I try my best to remember the details of it.

So there's this DS game that I played as a child and for the life of me I can't remember the game. I remember that the game starts you off as a child and you get lost in a cave with your sister and you escape from all these monsters there. Also I remember that your mother is dead and you're being raised by your father who ends up dying as well and because of this you set off on a quest. I remember there being a forest level and you run Into a native of the forest an archer girl who joins your party and you fight a huge plant monster there as the boss. Other then that I don't remember much. Pls help

hi everyone, trying to find a game
You were playing in the underworld, you were a master of evil (or hell), you had as a boss your elite creature the devil , you could dig to expand your space and find gold.
You could build in your space prisons, torture room etc. You were picking up your workers with the mouse (which was an evil hand).
You were under attacks from humans.
Real time strategy game, was before of 2004 i guess

best regards

Hey guys! So I'm looking for a first-person point-and-click adventure game in a dark fantasy setting. The menu for the game had a very metallic theme with a beige/grey colour. The first thing you need to do in the game was to escape a prison using a pile of bones. After that my memory is kinda blurry but after escaping the prison you had to go to some kind of party and then mixing chemicals to make a violent potion for some reason. The game was in 3D with graphics which must be after 2000 but before 2004. One thing that I'm sure of is that there was a hot chick wearing some kind of armor. I never finished this game and I lost the CD.

That's a game out of the "Dungeon Keeper" series.

That sounds exactly like Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles: Ring Of Fates (except that the girly-looking archer is actually a boy). =)

Holy crap man man, yes that's it's you have no idea how long I've been searching for this game man thank you so much!!!! 😁😁😁😁😁😁

Hi everyone,

My Mum and I are trying to remember the name of a game we used to play way back when. I'd estimate it was late 90s or early 2000s, back when dial up connections were still a thing and you could get some interesting built-in PC games. I mention the last part because I'm pretty sure it WAS a built-in PC game, though I could be entirely wrong because I was quite young at the time.

Essentially this was a puzzle game that revolved around swapping tiles. The things I remember EXTREMELY vividly are: it was based around a garden (or maybe a plant bed?), you were given a top down picture that the garden was supposed to look like, and you had a set number of moves and/or time limit to swap your tiles around to make the garden you had look like the image given to you.

I realise this isn't much to go on, but I can't seem to find any trace of it and I'd love to be able to replay it and see if it still stumps me now... any help would be greatly appreciated by my Mum and I! Thanks!

Hello
I'm sorry if my English is bad, but I've been looking for this game for a long time and without success
-was about robots
-the view of the game was from above (aerial, I think it's the term)
-the first level you managed a quadruped robot (although I think it was a spider)
-the first level if not bad memory was like a temple, and you started to climb (something like an inverted pyramid)
-the other levels I do not remember much but it was a factory
-Apart from the spider robot you could handle other robots but it depended on the level
-the graphics were not so 2d, I think it has some resemblance to "rise of the robot"

I'm not sure if it was a game of some console, I remember it because my cousin got me a pirated CD, in this also came the games joe & mac 2 and donkey kong country 2.
I thought it was a game of the snes but whenever I searched I found myself with the same popular games (although maybe I did not search well).

I am looking for a version of pacman game i used to play as a kid (somewhere around 2005 but i belive its older than that), this is what i recall:

Had green background, standard yellow pacman thingy eating yellow circles, with big circles allowing you to eat ghosts instead of being eaten
Had 9 levels ((maaaybe 10 but i think its 9 ) different maze shapes, first one is like in classic pacman i think)
One of the levels was pretty circular i think (still aligned to integer lattice ofc)
Had some kind of turbo that you activate manually to go faster while you held space at the expense of some kind of turbo points (marked by a horizontal red meter), which recharge over time
Had some spots where you can pick some power-ups, some of which were to skip to next level (marked with '+' symbol), go to previous level (marked with '-' symbol), get some points towards highscore, get more turbo thing, get extra life
Had some sort of portals (not like just symmetric left wall to right wall sort of thing, but like places in middle of the maze sending you to other places in middle of the maze)

Disclaimer: i was pretty young and this memory is kinda lacking both detail and confirmation (some of things i mentioned might be from different game or non existent at all, i can not guarantee against that, although it all feels like its in place), anyway, i have been looking for this for quite some time now and i really hope someone here can help me find it. Thanks in advance :)

I'm looking for an old racing game.
-Top-down view
-Similar to micro-machines
-90's or early 2000's (most likely 90s)
-multiplayer option
-most likely PC, only consoles I had at this time were Genesis

The only thing I remember that would set this game apart from others, is that between the races you could repair your vehicle.
You could pay the "shop" to have some repairs done for you - or you could do it "manually" where you played this short minigame
In this game you rotate "tiles" on a grid to try and line up what i thought was electronics and what-not, to repair your vehicle. You only had a few seconds to try and rotate as many as you could.

Been looking for this game for a long time.
