it's a psx game. 2d platformer with 3d graphics a la dk country. i think there's shooting? your man's in a yellow jumpsuit. he works at a time or dimension-hopping company. in the opening cutscene before the alarms go off and he heads out, he's playing a handheld version of this very video game. i don't know if it's a meta thing or a training exercise. anyway do you shoot or run away from like gorillas in the first level or something maybe?

@whiteraven30: Gex 2 or Gex 3 maybe? You were a gecko not a salamander but one of the games took place in some boxy desert areas from what I recall.

Hello guys, I hope someone will know which game is in question. Problem is, I remember very little, and I may be getting elements from 2 different games mixed up.

-This is an RPG game I played during the late 90s or early 00s.

-I am to 90% sure that this was a ps1 game, although it could have been an early ps2 titel. I also had an N64 during that time, but it's highly unlikely that this was a Nintendo titel.

-The combat system was of the action kind, not a turn-based one.

-The main protagonist was male, and he was the only character you could control, both in and out of combat.

-If I recall correctly, there were no random encounters, enemies were visible, if you got too close, you had to fight them.

-I recall constantly finding and equiping better weapons as the story progressed (which affected the reach, speed and damage of your attacks)

-I can remember that one of the first quests/missions was saving a female character, and you use an aircraft (perhaps an airship) to get her location.

-I can clearly remember a cave/mine area, where you get captured by the enemy, and are forced to mine (for gemstones?) with other slaves, and eventually escape captivity (this may or may not be the same mission as the above-mentioned one).

That's about as much as I can remember, thanks.

Edit: found it, Granstream Saga :)

Hi. I've played this game a long time ago so my memories are not really detailed. It was 2004-2013 (I guess, I was really small kid then) , a platformer on PC. Dark atmosphere, probably in caves. There were also some yellow clay in the celling which was kind of obstacle, which was dropping. In the description of the game was mentioned soundtrack, which was really suitable for the atmosphere in the game. Thanks in advance!

I think i was 13 when i played this game on my pc. now i m 19. I don t really remember much about it. I know on the menu screen was a scene with a weird crazy scientist with kids into some tubes, like some kind of experiments. The whole laboratory is green. The game was pretty Sci-fi. The character that i m playing with is a pretty big guy (third person). I don t remember something else.

@sparky_buzzsaw: Your first game sounds like it might be Solforge from the description, but it is a little vague

I thought I would post a quick reminder for people asking about games on this thread. Please try to describe what makes the game unique. Telling me it was a turn based JRPG on the PS1 isn’t going to help. Adding that it was party based, set in a fantasy/steampunk setting and involved saving the world from some great evil by finding a magic gem isn’t helping. But telling me there was a scene where a brown haired girl is stabbed through the back by a dude with a katana will immediately let me know you are talking about Final Fantasy 7, even if some of those other descriptors are a bit inaccurate (like it is an active time battle system).

Do include system, genre, and time of release if you know it, but don’t expect anyone to help if you can’t give us something unique. I know you might not remember much. If you don’t recall much then try and paint a picture of a scene you do remember. Include as many details as possible, however minor. Do be sure to note if you played this when very young and might be misremembering something.

A lot of the requests recently are far too vague to allow for us to help. Ask yourself if the game you described could describe another game you know of. If the answer is yes then at least list off games you know it isn’t that also fit your description.

I'm looking for a specific platformer flash game: it features a yellow round cone shaped playable character, in the game you have the ability to double jump, and run on ceilings, it had 4 worlds I think, sawblades were a re-occurring obstacle, it had fast and tight platforming, I'm pretty sure it came out between 2012 and 2016, but it could've been a bit outside that range (I'm pretty sure I played it in 2015 but I could be wrong), the art style of the game is very similar to another flash game Dash Dash. (http://www.notdoppler.com/dashdash.php)
I originally played it on notdoppler, but I can't seem to find it.
If anyone can find it and/or the name I would be really happy.

I am looking for a CD game, played on the pc. I played this maybe around 2006-2008. The player had to find all the alphabets and numbers while riding in a bumper car.

There was a boy and girl and you could choose to play as either character. They also each rode in a different type of bumper car. I think the girl may have braids and the boy may have had short hair. I remember there being a third character who provided some kind of exposition. The game let you choose your gender and you had to choose either a 'numbers' or an 'alphabet' mode. I do not know if you could choose the map or not. Basically the game starts with some person telling you about the alphabets or numbers which are arranged in perfect order. Suddenly, i think the wind or something else blows them away and they get scattered across the map. The player is sitting in a bumper car, and has to drive across the map, finding each and every alphabet/number. You usually had to drive on the dirt/gravel road but you could go off road and drive on the huge hills that were basically everywhere on the map. If you drove up a hill with enough speed, you could go flying off which was the most fun part of the game for me. I think you could also go in water, but not sure. The maps you played on were probably a circular loop like a race track.

There were different maps i think. I remember bright skies on the maps with clouds and huge green hills everywhere. I think one map had snow on it. There was also some body of water i remember which you could drive past. You could also see a vast terrain outside the map with cities and maybe a rainbow but you could never get there no matter how hard you tried because of a wall or some tall barrier preventing you from doing so. Not sure about this one, but maybe the bumper car you rode in had a triangular bottom and maybe there was a day night cycle in the game.

There was a separate mini-game where you raced against other random characters in bumper cars. The race would start near a large stadium full of a cheering crowd. I think there was a countdown, after which the race started. I remember different biomes/areas on the track. When the race ends(i do not remember how it ends), the top 3 winners but put on a podium while in their bumper car.

Hello,

this is a long shot but I’m looking for a board game that was out in the U.K around late 90s, early 00s. It was a blue board game with a handle, there were animals down one side and it was a shopping and spelling game. It would also speak if you pressed on an item and had phrases like ‘that is a banana, I’ll buy it’ and ‘that is a worm, I’ll buy it’ I don’t know if the name was something along the lines of happy shopper or something like that.

anyone know what I’m talking about? Thanks

Hi there. I've been trying to figure out the name of this game for years. I used to play it on an ancient PC, it was on windows, in the early 2000's, the game probably from the mid to late 90s. It was a puzzle game. Either letters or numbers. There was lots of fire, like torches. Lots of orange. There were tiki guys, like big scary masks (I was a kid so it was scary) and if you ran out of time or got something wrong, a big mask guy would like swing on a vine and come at the screen, screeching. Possibly a monkey? Anyway if you could help me that would be huge!!

Forgive me for any lack of terminology. My gaming days were few and far between as a child. I had a select few I loved and would absolutely love to find again.

Back between I think 95 and 99, there was a pinball game called 3-D pinball space cadet. It came with the computer pre-downloaded. There was another game, also included on the PC that I THINK was like a home page for other games, but it was also a game. Like, it was a house or something and there were links to games or there were things around the house you could do. For example, there was a plant in a little flower pot. It looked like the plant from 'Little Shop of Horrors' and you had to water it regularly. If you didn't water it it would die but if you watered it enough it would come back to life. ANY help would be appreciated.

A browser game on a site like Miniclip or Armor Games. Between about 2005 to 2009. The game involved 2 bases either side of the screen, a bit like Age of War. The player controlled a helicopter with a magnetic crane lifter, and the objective was to carry metal back to your base in order to upgrade your base and your helicopter. My guess for the game name is something like Magnet Wars, or Magnetocopter. Game was quite colourful, with blue helicopter being light blue I think. Mainly aimed for kids.

Nevermind I found it on notdoppler. It was called Magnetic Defense by Ninja Kiwi. http://www.notdoppler.com/magneticdefense.php

I have very limited memory of the details, but I remember loving the game! I will provide as much as I can!

This was a PC game from back in the late 90s or early 2000s. I believe it was an educational game, but it may have just been a general game more geared towards kids. It was a very quirky game where you would venture to different areas. There are two sections of the game that I can remember in particular. There was one where you could make ice cream. Another part that stands out more is you could meet little characters that were different types of nuts. I remember there being a pistachio and an almond. And one of them was very adamant about having to wear glasses due to being near or far sighted.

The graphics were pretty good as there were real world elements involved. If I can think of anything else I will add to this comment later. I hope someone can help me out! :)

This was a PC game in the late '90s or early 2000s. You piloted a futuristic airplane above a futuristic cityscape. You were able to fire weapons that could destroy enemy ships and that could interact with some of the buildings on the ground. The most distinguishing feature I can remember about this game was that the cityscape was littered with what I can only describe as light towers. They may have had some sort of light orb on the top of each tower but I'm not sure. And I believe that as you destroyed these towers or something else happened that your ability to see the cityscape got more difficult, as if it got darker the later into the match or the further you progressed but I'm not sure. I remember playing a demo or what I believe was a demo of this game. I'm sorry that I cannot remember additional details. It would be amazing if someone can identify this. Thanks all.

It was a game played on the computer in and around 2003. It is a matching game but you only click the matches already there you cant move them. It had a blue background I think and it was a rectangle playing field. some of the matches were gummy bears, candy corn. There were different random boards and you couldn't choose them, like fruit, candy. There was a colored timer that counted down, kinda in the shape of an exclamation point. you could clear different levels until the timer ended. very addictive game It is not candy crush or those type of games. Please help me remember the name of this game

There are two old Genesis tiles I've been trying to find for years. Alas, the problem is my knowledge of them is quite slim. Where to begin?

I can't exactly remember the year I actually GOT a Genesis (or whether it was before or after my folks got a SNES) but I do remember my motivations for wanting one. Sonic the Hedgehog, of course, as it was all the talk amongst the kids at school. I'm gonna guess this was between 1991 - 1992 as I clearly remember getting Sonic 2 some weeks after it came out...

Anyways, my dad was NEVER one for platformers and preferred the company of RPG's. I remember one morning going into my parent's bedroom (where my genesis was set up) and coming across two games my dad rented. Both were RPG's but all I can remember of them were the rather...dark game over screens. Being 4 or 5 I had no idea how to play them so I ended up dying quickly. One of the games showed the sight of your starting town in ruin with the screen closing with the sight of your tombstone in the graveyard. The other one? I remember it even less, though I vaguely remember it showing a tombstone as well.

Any ideas?

There this one game I was looking for.. In the beginning of the game, we must complete the tutorial where we have to catch rabbit, shoot at target using gun..

Then there is a LOT of weapons in this game, swords, guns. A flaming sword is my favorite!

I remember one campaign where we have to fight a giant turtle I think, and after the fight, we will get a loooong sword that was stuck at the turtle's foot.

And if I remember correctly, the final boss fight is when we have to fight a boss that lavitate and fly around.

Oh and this game has a cheat code that makes us invincible, get all weapons.. THAT CATCHING RABBIT tutorial is the most vivid thing I remember about the game.

The game platform is PC. The graphic is 3D. I played this game between 2000-2006.

Heya. So there was a game i used to play on a website on my pc a couple of years ago. It was a series actually and i think it included two games. In both games you play as a bold guy with a long nose. They are puzzle games and in one of them the story goes as follows : You are out in the woods next to a campfire and suddenly a metallic bird falls out of the sky and dies. You go to the plaxe where it fell and its soul comes out of the metal body and your mission for the rest of the game is to get it back to its nest or factory and get a new body for it. It was a point and click puzzle adventure on a website.

Sadly i can't remember anything else. I'd be grateful if someone helps a bit cause I've searched a lot for it and can't find anything

@kama621: That really isn’t much to go on but based on the timeframe the first game that popped into my head was Shining in the Darkness. I can’t remember what the game over screen looked like in it, but it is an rpg from 1991 on the Genesis and was fairly well known at the time.
