I can't remember the name of the game but i remember it being on Sega Genesis. it's a two player game where two huge guys one wearing a blue shirt while the other has a red short with lots of muscles run around kicking guys and dogs and having their exposed thighs munched on by dogs. they restore health by smashing soda machines and drinking the cans that drop from them. it was easily the best Co-Op game on it and i can't remember it's name what so ever.

A few days ago I was trying to remember the name of this old PC edutainment game I played when I was young. This would have been released in the early 90's. I think the setup was that you were an inventor collecting parts to a car and the game ends in a race against the rival inventor. You collect the parts by working your way through through these Elevator Action style areas where you eventually get to puzzles where you're doing things like wiring up a circuit to turn on a light bulb or moving around weights to even out a balance.
 
EDIT:
Nevermind, I just figured it out. It was a game called Gizmos and Gadgets.

I have to admit, I actually just googled "soda machines health beat em up ."
 
I can, however, tell you that GB has a quicklook where they play through the entire game, though I don't remember what game it was in.

@Chaser324: Would certainly have answered that for you if you hadn't figured it out. Amazing game.

Prepare for a very out there one: There was a freeware game I had years ago that was...kind of a space sim and kind of a simulation of the Milky Way as we know it.   

You were and alien that was tasked with exploring the stars as you saw fit, you could land on any solid planet and walk around freely on it. You were limited only by a fuel that could either be replenished by mining off of white dwarfs or waiting in real time (even if the program was closed).  
 
The graphics were primitive (I can't remember if it even had proper colour) though the game was rather recent (2004 or 2005 ish? At least that was around the time I had first found it). It was offered both as an offline or an online client. 
 
Edit: Never mind, I got lucky using Wikipedia. The game was Noctis

#14 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -
@Driadon: was it written for DOS? I remember trying something kind of like that which was inexplicably written for DOS (I don't remember the year, but it was fairly recent).
#15 Posted by Death_Unicorn (2838 posts) -

There was this arcade game me and my friend would play the shit out of each time we'd go to the theaters. It was an on-rails shooter, and you were underwater. The booth had like these giant underwater guns you used in the game. You'd fight sharks, krakens, and other sea creatures.

#16 Edited by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -
@Driadon: Also, this game was called Nocits if that helps.
 
EDIT: hmm looking at the wiki page for Noctis doesn't mention the DOS thing, but it sounds EXACTLY like what you are describing.
 
EDIT 2: Oh, you found it. don't I feel silly :)

Hahaha. Thanks for the help, regardless. Apparently was coded and released as a DOS program back in '96 and has simply grown since then. It's very likely you played an earlier version of it.

Most likely, that would also explain why I could never figure out how anything worked. Who codes for dos in 96? Sheesh.

Question from the old thread: 
 
@X19: Please help, if possible. 
 
The game I am looking for was a game on the internet, not a paid video game. It was on www.coffeebreakarcade.com. In the "Cool" section.
The last time I played it was approximately 7 years ago. 
The game was a platformer. 
You played as a Ninja on a Skateboard that was trying to save his buddy, who was captured by aliens. 
 
That is all I remember from the game. I've been dying to play it again for years. I know its not a conventional video game, but if you have any help it would be EXTREMELY appreciated!

#27 Edited by Zlimness (552 posts) -

Ok I have a game I've been looking for a while now.
 
My memories are kind of vague, but I've tried to piece together as much as I can:
 
It was a 2D platform game and I played it on an arcade cabinet. I think it was before 96. If I had to guess, somewhere between 1990-1992. Possibly from Taito. I only remember the gameplay vaguely, but it involved water somehow. You played as a dude with flowing water powers or shoot water blobs or something. The graphics were cartoonish, think Rainbow Island with lots of colors and fruit and shit.
 
I know it sounds like just about every platformer, which is why I can't find this specific one. But it's an arcade game from the late 80's or early 90's and reminds me of Rainbow Island, Bubble Bobble. Just need help to pin down a few possible games. I'll probably recognize it as soon as I see it though. Since it was an arcade game, it was pretty frantic as well.

@X19:  Cheers for the heads up. I've copy and pasted this straight from that other thread:

"Hmmm. He looked like Link from legend of zelda? And the graphics were pretty cartoony. And if it helps, I think the title was made up of more than one word."   
 
"Its a game I've been trying to remember the name of for aaages. It was for the Sega Mega Drive, and I think it was a side-scrolling platformer, based on that mythical/medieval style of shit (possibly). The closest game I can relate to it is that second Legend of Zelda game that was a side scroller. Sorry if my description is crap, but it was a very long time ago.   If anybody even has the faintest idea what I am on about, its a miracle. "

You need to stop breaking your threads man. Is there any way we can recover the unanswered questions from the old thread?

#30 Posted by X19 (2306 posts) -
@CookieMonster: Just before the old thread got locked Ignor left you a message. Is it any of these? 
  
@CookieMonster: *Phew* You're right, It isn't as easy to find as I firstly believed.  
However, I have narrowed it down to five games. I hope one of these is what you're looking for: 
Otherwise it may be Wonderboy in Monster World.

@ESREVER: The thread is now in three parts(this page, archive page, your page) so it wont happen again hopefully. I have PM all the users who had a question unaswered with a link to the old thread. Most of the questions are still in the spoilers so they just need to post them here. I would add them myself but I need new hyperlinks from them for this thread. Thanks for updating the page.

@zlimness: God that game sucked, but I played the hell out of Enchanted Castle on Genesis.  And sad to say, again on PS3 in the form of the Genesis collection. 
#35 Posted by CookieMonster (2416 posts) -
@zlimness: naaa I don't think so. Its like the same theme of the zelda games, all that mythical medieval crap. Thanks for trying though :D

Oh, and for the record the frog was incredibly anthromorphed; it stood upright, had large cartoony eyes and wore clothes.

#43 Posted by X19 (2306 posts) -
@LackingSaint:  Is ESREVER answer right. 
 

  I actually own this game I think. I went in my library of old PC games and found a game featuring a frog. The title of it is Spell It 3, and its by Davidson. The same guys responsible for Math Blaster and Reading Blaster. 
Hmm, on second thought, it might not be it. I can't find any other games featuring this frog as a character in different subjects. I'll post anyways, it might spur some folk's memories. 
 
I can't believe I forgot this one... Jump*Start 2nd Grade featured a Frog covering many different subjects. Frog's name was CJ and he had a Firefly partner by the name of Edison. 
That's more likely to be it. He may have featured in more games as well.
