This was a computer game that I played between 1995 & 2005 I believe.

What I remember is it being sort of a puzzle or obstacle course kind of game. Each level was a different area & you had to figure out how to set up different things (like jump pads & boosts) to get your character to the end of the level. I believe the end of the level was marked by a flag or some sort of portal that took you to the next level. ** It’s NOT portal or chips challenge **. I vaguely remember that parts of each level would be something that you couldn’t touch, like maybe the floor was lava or a wall had spikes - something like that. Im pretty sure that you had a certain amount of attempts to get past each area before you had to reset to the area you were at last. It was not easy & each level got more difficult.

Other things that I vaguely remember but am not sure about: I think you were some kind of agent or spy. I think you were caught by the villain & he traps you in his lair or whatever & you have to get through each area/ level until you reach him. I think there might have been a screen at the beginning of each level where he would pop up & say something to you before you start & he was watching you or whatever. I think that each level started by him saying something, then it shows you the ending point & moves past each obstacle or whatever until it gets to there starting point where you are.

I can’t remember if you controlled your movements or just set things up & then clicked to go or whatever. It may have been something where you move thru one step at a time or set it all up & go through it in one motion. I think was sort of like an arcade/ puzzle game where there weren’t infinite ways to get from point A to point B. It wasn’t 2D.

Platform: Arcade

Genre: sidescroller - platform - adventure - 2D

Estimated year of release: end of the 80s

Notable characters: As I remember, the main character was kind of a knight, but he was round... or his shield was round. In my memory it looked like a armadillo.

Notable gameplay mechanics: the shield was the main item and it was possible to hold the shield in any direction to protect from attacks (probably throwing knives).

Other details: The first stage was too dark, looked like a cave or something like this and the shield was color purple.

Observation: it is NOT -> Black Tiger, Rastan, Rygar

Thank you guys!

Hey! Just talking with my friends and I remember a specific part of it that I liked. Your teammate was a sniper? AI and when you aim down the sights at an enemy your teammate would take him out. Pretty much instantly too. And quietly.

It was a recent game. Maybe a call of duty? Maybe splinter cell? I can't remember.

And quietly.

Is that, uh... Quiet from Metal Gear Solid V? I think Ghost Recon: Wildlands also had a similar mechanic. I haven't actually played either.

There was a game for the PS2 that I rented. I think it was Japanese and you played as spies or some shit. First level was on a train as far as I can remember. You had to beat the levels on singleplayer mode to unlock co-op mode for that specific level, which pissed me and my brother off. Haven't seen or heard of it since until it recently popped into my head.

@cure_optimism: Was it Th3 Plan? The second mission of that one is on a train and you have to unlock co-op by completing bonus objectives in single player.

Yep, that's it. Isn't as old or as Japanese as I thought. Apparently made by a French development team and released in 2007. Thanks, man.

There was this PS1 game I remember renting from the blockbuster with my dad before my mom made me return it for being too violent. This would have been 97-99, and I remember the game being third person and science fiction-y, and there were several levels where you drove semi-realistic tanks? It might have been rated M, but I'm not sure.

Looking for a game I played on some demo CD i borrowed from my classmate. I came with "Killgore" I think was the name, Nascar, Sin and thief: the dark project.

The game I'm interested in is a strategy game where i think something made earth inhabitable in the future and both genders split into faction fighting over the resources of Mars, I think. You choose whether you want to play as either the girls or the boys. It's a sci-fi game with mechs, aliens and base building.

Would really appreciate if someone could tell me what it is. The name of the game had the year in the title (2320 A.D.) or something and it had a "skirmish" game mode.

So a game I've been trying to figure out on and off for the past few years has been killing me and this seems as good a place as any to ask.

From what I remember, it was a platformer/puzzle game, if I had to guess made in the late 90s and on PC. The general plot of the very beginning of the game was you were a kid who had to repair your mom's hot tub, and went to some oddball parts place, and when you installed the new part you turned the hot tub into a time machine. You went waaaay back in time to around when Archimedes was alive (if I'm not mistaken), and aliens had a plot to get this time machine back from you. After this the details get a bit fuzzy, but stick with this lastbit. When you're beating sense into the aliens while platforming, you zap them with your TV remote, and the aliens are generic green blobs, I think.

I'm not sure if anyone can help with this, and even if you do the chances of me getting to play are probably slim/next to none, but at least it'd finally solve what the hell it was called.

Can't remember thename of game I played, it was an 8-bit game in which a soldier is dropped from helicopter(Its not contra :) ) and after each mission the helicopter appears to bring him for next chapter. It was similar to 'contra' and 'double dragon'

He does not have any weapon initially then he punch some wooden box and get a gun. Its a sci-fi futuristic game, with big ships and canons etc.

The name was something like 'CUBA' or 'QUBA' or may be it is the name of one of the levels.

Please help to remember me

played a game but forgot for which console.I believe it was before the ps3. It was a topdown shooter i believe, with cars but if it gets destroyed you become a guy with a gun still in a topdown shooter fashion. At one point you fight a boss where at one stage it falls of the arena and becomes some sort of tentacle monster of some sort i think. It was also couch co-op with red and blue cars and people. I faintly remember a cutscene where the characters run through a white door of some sort. Hopefully someone knows this game

I remember playing a game on PS1 or PS2 back in 05-09 where you started the game as a smaller robot but you could find other robot shells or stronger robot bodies and you could turn into them and use them. Each robot had different guns and sizes and stuff. Was multiplayer.

@flibberdipper: I know I have played the game you are talking about or at least seen it played. I'm going to have to think on it for a bit but that all sounds too familiar.
