Strategy game from the 90's revolving around space colonization.

There are multiple races you can choose from (don't remember whether there's any difference between them other than aesthetic, and one of them represents humans).

Planet regions to be colonized are divided in quadrants and each quadrant is a square grid map (cells). In these maps there are resources like wheat, ore, etc (represented by a respective icon in the cells), you place specific buildings on top of the resource icons to harvest them over time (not all cells have resources), you can also build other structures that function to move your colony further/develop technology (the game kinda has elements from Civilization, in this aspect). You also build defenses such as towers/turrets etc (depending on your tech).

There are also civilians that function as your work force (IIRC), you place them on the cells you want them to work (they're like tiny animated sprites, art varying depending on your race). They can become unhappy with your rule, no longer able to be moved around and ceasing to work (I think), you can tell that happens cause they have a red overlay around their sprites.

The game happens in turns, you can also build military units to conquer other territories or defend your own. When a turn ends with a unit in an enemy region a battle happens. The battle is completely automatic, you see the fighting forces attacking each other and/or razing buildings and turrets (if any) attacking on their own. The only decision the player has in this regard is where to place defenses (units and/or buildings) and such, other than that there's absolutely no control on the battle outcome.

This is as much I can remember. If anyone can help me figure out what game this is I'd really appreciate it!

Found it: Deadlock Planetary Conquest

There's a game I can't remember the name of, but I can remember some details from it. The wizard or a mage in blue robe have to find a way to heal his dragon or a wyvern. He have to solve puzzles to be able to help his dragon/wyvern. Several of the details I can remember is that if the mage went into a school and threw a yellow ball (I think it's a magic ball) at the teacher, the parents will line up outside and hit the wizard/mage. When the wizard/mage managed to get to a different land, he have to go through a room that have invisible floor path and it looked like a star field background. If the wizard/mage misses a step, he have to redo it from the beginning. I can't remember a lot of things, but those are some of the details I can remember, oh and he's married to a blonde woman who's pregnant. I do know that it's a 3D game and I think it's made in late 90s or early 2000.

Hey there! I specifically made this account just to post my own mystery and hope that someone out there might have a clue or even an answer for it. I do hope that it's the latter coz I can't get that specific game out of my head. T_T

Okay, here's what I can remember. It's a psx game that got released back when that console was still sporting the original controllers (no analog sticks). The game was probably released before the year 2000 and I remember playing it in Japanese, which answers why I don't know the title. Language barrier didn't stop little me playing though because I liked how colorful it was. XD

Anyway, more details. The game starts after you select the character you want to play as. The characters all look chibi in the game. For this, I always choose the brown short-haired girl in a sailor uniform because he voice sounded cute. Once the game starts, you'll be in a huge island with squares (like seen on boardgames) lining the edge of the island where your character and your opponents will be playing on. This game plays out like a boardgames complete with a pair of (huge) dice that floats in the air while you're rolling them. You and your opponents will each be accompanied by a robot (their looks vary), which you can decide to send out to go treasure-hunting or maybe for training if you land on a specific square. The robots come back after they find the treasure or get heavily beaten and in need of a good repair. I don't really know or maybe I just don't remember how you win the game though. As for genre, adventure maybe?

I think this is all that I can remember. Let me know if you guys need clarification on something.

Ok, so there is this game I played on PC in the early 2000s.

I can remember having to press some mechanical controls that would grant access to something. It might have been in the lobby of the game.

I just remember messing with this control in the game and things moved. I think it was a first person, it could have been in space. I remember being very high it seemed like I was standing on some sort of platform. It looked futuristic and the graphics were pretty amazing at the time. For some reason, I can remember this planet looking thing in the game that looked a lot like Epcot in disney.

It was very relaxing and there was usually no ambient sound. Just the sound of the mechanical controls.

I don't think it was a Disney game it seemed very sophisticated. It was not a star wars game.

I've been trying to figure this one out for many years.

Thanks in advance

@t_t: Hmm. This is a really interesting one. Have you looked at Magical Dice Kids? I'm not certain that's really it, but I always like bread crumbing and seeing if we can jog any memories. I'll update this if I can find more info.

@joedangerous: Hey there. I looked up Magical Dice Kids but, unfortunately, that's not it. It did made me remember something. The graphics were 2D and all the players (except for their robot partners) were human. The only ones who would actually go adventuring in the island were the robots because there were monsters in it while the players will stay on the boardgame-like edges of the island. There were times when the game pauses and a still-image of your robot (i.e. holding up a treasure chest or fighting a giant crab at the beach or being smacked by a monster or climbing up a snowy mountain) so you can see what it's up to since he left to venture into the island. Also, maybe the goal of the game is whoever has the most money by the end of the game wins. I just remembered that there were moments when my character would land on a certain tile and she would either be very happy because she got some cash or very sad because her cash went to someone else.

I hope that this will give more clues to what it is. Thanks a lot for trying to help me out.

Hello! There is this particular PC game that I am trying to remember the name of. I played it back during the early 2000s. All that I recall from the game is you are assigned to work in some sort of factory/power plant and have to play in a large array of puzzling levels. I fondly remember the game over you get when losing; the building becomes engulfed in a purple substance and eventually corrupts the entire world (which basically terrified me as a kid lol).

I wish I could give more details but this is as best I could remember. Thank you in advance for trying to help out. :)

Okay so I’m looking for a ps2 game. It is bugging me so much that I can’t find it. I know that the opening scene is on a boat and it’s raining/storm..and the main character is fighting someone. The main character is a princess/queen and there are 4-5 other characters who follow her around and you can switch between the characters when walking around. I vaguely remember them having to fight rock people. I’m sorry I can’t remember more 🙄 They fight with swords and what not. And there is obviously a castle. Pls help lol

Greetings.

There was a game, a PC game. My older sister and I played the game a lot. I was 10 in 2008, as I remember. I am 21 now. The game was colourful and cartoony. I do not remember the intro, But I do remember the moment that you had to select a spacecraft and configure the details. Once you have done doing it, you would see a colourful and cartoony creature yells: "Ouweeeeeeeeeeeeei" in a mid-loud voice. I also remember an octopus saying: "MONEY MONEY MONEY" when you collect or sell the money. The game encourages you to take care of your spacecraft and travel to different planets/universes in space. If you fail to complete the achievements, the game over red screen looked like a bunch of people protesting, and the music had a dark tone. I think the game's genre was educational and adventure. By judging the design, it looked like a pixelated game. It was a weird game.

I have been trying to discover the game for about a decade. Please help me out.

Edit: I have found the game. It is called "Gazillionaire"

Hello!

I've been looking for this old 8bit game for a while now, and had no luck whatsoever. But i think one of you should know, since it doesnt feel like a generic game.

You play as a kid with a red hat (should actually be enough for anyone that knows the game :D). You start by falling in a hole (maybe a dream). You keep moving to the right, until you come by an "underground village". As far as i remember, the residents are bunnies. I remember a girl bunny and a "tough" bunny, that i think has a scar over one eye (not 100% sure about that).

I don't remember the story too well, but i remember picking up weapons that can be upgraded (by picking up the same type of wapon i think). Also, if you die, it's not game over, but you must go through the level again, without the upgraded weapons (you have to get them again). I also remember that the villian is a (i think human) doctor or scientist.

The game is 2D, 8bit, you move left and right, you can jump, shoot and upgrade weapons. it's pretty much an old 8bit platformer with shooting.

I don't remember much else, but i'll anwser all questions to the best of my abilities.

Edit: Thanks to @moskelosk, the game is called CAVE STORY

Okay, so this game I remember was a kind of Base-building, resource collection, space themed game. There was a storyline, a sandbox, and a multiplayer aspect. When you began a new game or campaign, the start of a level was you in a spacecraft used for transportation. To begin the base building, you had to place the central 'node' or something. When you placed it, you could build other buildings like guard towers, power generators, and troop spawners. There were combat and resource troops. The game might have been from the late 1990's to 2000's, played on PC, and the graphics were not too bad, like a more recent 3-D kind of map.

Hello, I would be really grateful if someone could help me find the name of this one game. I searched for it everywhere and I am getting a bit desperate

It was a kids game where you play as a teddy bear. I remember just one scene: you must save a tail of a monkey stuck in closed door before a band of marching ants gets there and take the tail. It was a pretty colorful game based on point and click mechanic I think.

This is a great forum! I would be tremendously appreciative if you could help me identify a game from the late 1990s. If it's as much fun as I remember, I think you'd all really enjoy it! Here are the details:

Era: 1997-2000

Platform: Definitely PC (I think maybe Windows 95/98, but possibly Linux or MS-DOS)

Genre: 3D flying shooter on Mars

Description: This was a demo or engine of a game that the developers were sharing around online. It was shareware/freeware, and I think their goal was eventually to turn it into a full game they could sell. It was a first-person flying shooter. You flew in 3D over the surface of Mars, including through a huge valley (Valles Marineris I think) and your goal was to shoot an endless collection of enemy aircraft. The controls were fairly streamlined, and it was enormously fun to play. It was almost a Zen thing. But I can't remember the name of it, and I can't find it despite much searching Google, Youtube, etc. Thanks so much in advance!

Hello. I remember a game that was like pac-man. There were levels, 100 levels. Level 1 was above the ground, and then we went down, the last level of 100 was already in hell. There were also colorful ghosts and ladders. And it was a 2D game on PC for the 2000s.

Not entirely sure, but sounds a little like Perimeter from 2004. Armor Command from 1998 is another one that kinda fits your description.

From what I remember, neither of those was it. I think the game title started with a 'battle' or 'star' something. Both of those look really close, though.

Another person in desperate need!! I've been searching everywhere for this game with no luck and it's driving me crazy.. Here are some things I can remember:

- Educational 3D kids pc game

- Early 2000s, maybe late 90s?

- Main characters were what can only be described as a wimpy, slightly annoying wizard with a mustache; and 2-3 talking dragons (yellow, red, maybe blue).

- They lived inside a tree.

- Each of the dragons had a mini game. Red was flying/shooting targets and balloons in the sky. Yellow was catching bugs. Not sure what the 3rd one did.

- There was also a game with some mice, where you went into their home inside the wall and did something with shirt buttons (?).

- Thought it was a Jumpstart game but I can't find it under that.

That's all I can remember but any help at all would be deeply appreciated as I use to play this game a lot when I was little. Surprised I can't remember the name...

The game I can't remember the name of was released sometime around the year 2000 (+/- one or two years).

It was a PC game. It had 3d graphics. The camera perspective was similar to a zoomed-in RTS \ action RPG. It had a historical, oriental, martial arts type theme.

It played a bit like an RTS with a small number of units in play and a focus on hero units with abilities.

I didn't play much of it because I think I had technical problems (voodoo card issues maybe?) and by the time these were resolved I was ready to put it to one side and never got back around to it.

Can anyone remember what it was called?
