@Black_Knight_00: Oh yes, I am so sorry.it was fantasy strategy game from a bird perspective it was 2D. The enemies and units werent really unique and original. Your standard fantasy stuff, so knights, dragons etc. I don't remember much from the gameplay, as it was mainly me and my friend watching his older brother play. The strongest memory are the fragments of the cutscene. :/

@Black_Knight_00: Yep. That was it. Thanks for the help! Oh and I have one more game that i'm looking for.

I remember playing a game where you have some kind of weird dragons or worms that are flying, you're in an aircraft and you have to shoot them down piece by piece until they die, they look like little balls connected to each other, like a long rope flying around, but in the shape of balls.The game is also sort of 3D. First played it around 1999-2000. I believe it was on a Windows 98 PC. I thought it was a game called Drone, but I might be wrong.

I hope someone can help as I only remember small parts of this game.

It's a PC 3rd Person Adventure game. I remember it being very similar to the recent release of Tomb Raider. It came out no earlier than 2000, and no later than 2008.

The part of the game I remember, you are a man on an island. Im not sure if you were shipwrecked or what, but I know there were other men on the island, probably pirates. Anyways the first sort of level you are on the beach of the island, and there are some docks. You have to kill some of the pirates as you parkour along like Lara Croft. You mainly had a sword but I think you had a flintlock with very limited ammo. There was this weird thing your character could do which was morph into some sort of monster type thing, that was kind of purple and similar to an ape. In this form you could do special actions or just do a lot of damage I think. I faintly remember a part where you're kind of in a cave for a short time as well.

Google searches came up with Monkey Island, which isn't what I'm thinking of.

Please if anyone has a guess reply otherwise it'll probably go with me to my death bed.

#1469 Posted by latke93 (6 posts) -

I remember playing a game somewhere from 2000-2004. It was a kind of war shooting game. You were defending a bunker or some kind of shelter from invading modern army. The army had thanks, airplanes, trucks, infantry. It was a PC game. I can not remember what was the game named...

What was it, the astronaut game? No luck so far.

#1471 Edited by LordSephiroth88 (7 posts) -

Hello. I cannot remember the name of this game:

You are the commander of a top down view world. Your goal is to collect green characters and guide them to a portal at the end of each level. Supposedly these people are "internet people". Along the way you can create new green men with a machine, mechanics, and infantry squads. The squads start with three soldiers with laser guns, and can be upgraded to using rocket launchers and eventually four man teams. You also use the ctrl button to bring up a menu where you draw shapes to give commands.

Some of your enemies (viruses) include bombers and red worms made of triangles. The game is relatively cheap, and doesn't require much to play. It can also be bought as a disk. The symbol of the characters is also the polygon used for the characters in game, and a picture is attached.

Some extra features include being able to give the characters Christmas hats and make it snow in game. Thank you!

@Black_Knight_00:

Name of the game just popped back into my head. Got the arms wrong. It's DARWINIA. Thanks :)

#1474 Posted by tidustheheart (98 posts) -

I am thinking of an older title.

Console- Playstation

Genre- RPG/Action-Adventure

Protagonist- A male lead character with white hair and I believe a red shirt/coat (Not Dante or DMC).

You started out in a field area with a couple of bad guys you can kill for experience points. I am pretty sure the save points were diamond shaped crystalline figures.

You could venture into a castle style dungeon right away by going over a bridge. Inside were bad guys in the form of ghosts, golems, and dog-like creatures. It had a very basic leveling and equipment system, but the style was very fun for the time.

Any help is much appreciated. I loved the game, and it was so underrated.

#1475 Edited by BlitzBallerJG (7 posts) -

99.9% Sure the game I was looking for was Solar Jetman, just played a little of it, guess my memory of it was a bit off, but seems to fit the bill, thanks Black_Knight!!

#1479 Edited by nathead15 (9 posts) -

I've been trying to identify a game for a long time. Some of the details are hazy but I remember certain parts of it.

This game would have been out in the 90s I believe. Most likely SNES, as I confused it with Super R-Type and Darius Twin for some reason. I think it is a verticle or side scrolling game. Either way I think you look down on the thing you control (don't remember what it is - maybe a space ship?).

One of the levels had you flying over water I think, in a Greek looking temple with columns. I think there were trilobites in the water. I think there was a three-headed dog thing as a boss in that level.

Any help with this would be appreciated!

@latke93: Was this Beachhead 2000 or its sequel?

#1481 Posted by Black_Knight_00 (18208 posts) -

There is a game I've been trying to find. I remember renting and playing it in the 90s. I believe it was for SNES. From what I remember you were a space ship or plane or something, and you fought your way through levels and there would be a boss at the end. I think it was a vertical scrolling game, possibly side scrolling. You looked down on your vehicle from above. One level was a water level temple looking place, possibly Greek looking. There were trilobites in one level, possibly as enemies and I think the boss was a two or three headed dog thing on that level. I got this game confused with Super-R Type or Darius Twin which makes me think it was SNES era.

Any help with this would be appreciated!

Here's what we're going to do:

Watch this video and there's a 92% chance the game you're looking for is in there. If it's really on the SNES that is.

Thanks for the reply, I didn't see anything in there that stirred my memory. This could have been on another platform (maybe SEGA or NES) or maybe I'm not remembering something correctly. The parts that I remember most are fighting a Cerberus type boss or mini-boss and trilobites being on a level that reminded me of a Greek temple with water in it.

I've been looking through the side-scrolling and verticle-scrolling game lists as well as mythology based game lists but still haven't found this thing yet lol.

#1484 Posted by Anthexx (4 posts) -

There are two games that I currently need help with finding :)

Game 1:

From what I remember, this is a 3D game which was released somewhere in the late 90s I think, the most distinctive feature would be that it looked like a Rayman clone, where the character had no limbs, only torso, head, hands and feet. I think the character you played as was colored blue, and it was a 3rd person camera which was behind the character. Another thing I remembered, is that you ate popcorn as a massive powerup, this game was for the PC, and it was such a long time ago that I can't remember too well :/

Game 2:

This is a game which I played over at a friends a while ago, I suppose this was also released in the late 90s, for Playstation, there was a singleplayer and a multiplayer feature, and I only remember the multiplayer version, basicly, you are two teams, which produces robots to fight each other, and there were kind of powerup-bases scattered on the field which would help you with resources to build these robots, the game was in 3D with a sort of a isometric camera angle, the singleplayer version was more like a 3rd person shooter and the 1st was just like the singleplayer version only with a strategic feature added.

I hope that I gave you enough information to find me what I seek (I care more about the first game than the second one though)

#1485 Posted by Black_Knight_00 (18208 posts) -

@Anthexx: Try Carnage Heart for your second one

#1492 Posted by barbanium (8 posts) -

Hi people! I need help figuring out the name of this game. This request could prove a challenge for you guys due to the nature of this game but you guys might know better than me so here it goes:

I remember playing this game in a Windows XP PC and the last and only time I played it is around 2005-2009 (just ONE of those years; that's the range when I still have my XP PC). It's more likely that I played it in 2005-2007 but I'm not so sure. Publication date? No idea. I guess I could also say that the game is NOT MMORPG because the PC I'm playing this with doesn't have an internet connection at the time, and I'm not sure if it can be played in LAN-multiplayer, though it's unlikely (therefore, it's likely a single player game). Another thing I remember is I've played this along with the game Freelancer; if I get bored with one, I'll switch to the other (don't know if that's helpful ;D).

The game I'm looking for is a Chinese-style action RPG. The environment has an ancient Chinese era feel to it (like wuxia-themed) but I vaguely remember that I could read the game's text. The version of the game I've played might be part-Chinese part-English OR fan translated OR published in pure English language (don't exactly know which one it is) but I'm pretty sure it's NOT in pure Chinese language otherwise I wouldn't have played this game at all.

Something unique that I remember about this game is that the elemental component used is NOT the typical fire, lightning, and ice OR fire, earth, wind and water, but rather based on the principle of wu xing: fire melts metal chops wood parts earth dams water extinguishes fire and also fire creates earth bears metal enriches water nourishes wood feeds fire. In other words, it has 5 elements total. I can't remember if the skills used are elemental based but I'm sure that each weapon has an elemental affinity (maybe the armors too).

The battle style of this game is NOT turn-based (like most Chinese games I googled) and is more like a Diablo-esque layout. The characters move around like the characters in a Diablo game and they fight foes in real time (just like in Diablo). Though, I wouldn't say that this is a hack and slash game cause I remember there were 2 or 3 characters always shooting magic projectiles and magic/skills are also used (maybe more like Diablo 3?). Also, like I said, the environment is Chinese-like so the setting is generally in bright daylight with colorful things around like flowers, trees, grass, brown dirt path, etc. unlike Diablo which generally has a dark setting.

One thing this game is different from Diablo in gameplay is that you can control at least 3 characters simultaneously (if you have more than 3, I'm not sure if you can control all of them at the same time or just 3 at a time but I'm sure about the fact that there's at least 3 playable characters in my screen playing this game). The appearance of these characters is NOT JRPG/anime-like (not bug-eyed) but instead, like I mentioned multiple times, is Chinese-like (google 'Chinese RPG'). I'm not so sure about this but I kinda remember starting out as a female Chinese character (with long hair and long dress and all) with an age of late-teen to young-adult with a starting weapon of a staff with wood-elemental properties (maybe her armor too). As I go through the game, I remember other characters joining my party and the first character to join is a tall muscular man (like a brute body structure) with a beast-like head (I'm not sure about this but I kinda remember his face being lion/tiger-like or wolf-like or something along those lines). He started out with a pair of claws as a weapon and they're metal-elemental. Another character I remember joining is a guy about young-adult to middle-adult old (again, with long hair and long clothes and all) with a starting weapon that resembles bracelets or rings (not sure if they're big enough to fit his wrist or small enough to fit his fingers) and has an elemental affinity of water. I recall reading part of the name of one of the buyable bracelet/ring weapons as 'pacifying OR pacifier OR pacification' (something that starts with paci-) and this is one of the reasons why I believe the game is NOT in pure Chinese language, I can read some of the text!

Based on this information, I can say that there are 2 more characters who joined my party (one started with a fire-based weapon, the other with an earth-based one) but I can't clearly remember what they look like. All I remember about them is that the one who started with a fire-based weapon wields a sword OR dual swords. The earth-based weapon? No clue.

Also, please do note that each character merely started out with one of the 5 elements but that doesn't mean they cannot equip a weapon with other elementals. In short, you can buy a type of weapon suited for a character with a different element they started with (maybe armors too). For example, the female character can wield a fire staff, water staff, metal staff, or an earth staff, but she can only wield staves.

The type of enemies I faced in this game can differ from spiders to people to tigers. At the early stage of the game, when I only had the female and the beast-faced characters, I remember entering a dungeon-like cave (again more like Diablo but the spaces where I move are wider). Inside, I battle hordes of small spiders (if not spiders, maybe small insects that crawl like one) and at the end of that cave is the huge version of those spiders which I battled as a boss. In the middle-ish part of the game, I remember having a conversation with a group of soldiers in the middle of a brown dirt path and then suddenly being in a battle against them. Then later in the game (which is probably the last part of the game I played), I was exploring a forest where tigers seldom appear which then again I battled.

Another note: I never got to finish the game so I don't exactly know how it ended. I also forgot the objective of the adventuring of the characters and the main antagonist. So, yeah.

But what I do remember is that I can run errands for people/NPC in towns as side quests (and obviously they reward me with something) and they'll treat me friendly. But I can also react in side quests with a bad behaviour option. For example, if I'm tasked to deliver things/gold (not sure if that's the real currency) I can ignore them in the first place OR keep the item/gold to myself which in turn could make them angry towards me OR even attack me. Another detail that I can remember about this game is that I can gather materials from my surroundings like from a bunch of rocks, a stump or a healthy tree, and from my foes, like poaching their hide or obtaining their weapons, etc. just like in the game Monster Hunter. From those materials, I can craft weapons or armors OR create other materials that craft those weapons or armors.

That's all I can remember about that game for now. Sorry for being very extensive on this post but that's all I can gather from my brain so I typed it. Ask me anything about this request and I might recall something else. Thank you very much in advance for those potential helpers! :D

PS. Before posting this, I DID research and google a lot of terms for a considerable amount of time (I can usually google something in a mere seconds if not split-second :p but not this one). The game series: Xuan-Yuan Sword and Xianjian Qixia Zhuan (the most famous ones) did came out from that research and I doubt any games from those series matches the game description in my mind (though I could have missed one or two games or spin-offs so if you're sure that it fits the descriptions above then please, let me know! :D)

#1493 Posted by barbanium (8 posts) -

Summarization:

- Played on Windows XP around 2005-2009 (just ONE of those years)

- Chinese-style action RPG; played in single player

- English text exists though some may be in Chinese characters or language

- Setting has an ancient Chinese feel; surroundings with vivid colors

- Layout is Diablo-like; battles are in real time

- Has 5 elements: fire, water, wood, earth, and metal

- Can control at least 3 characters at a time

- First character is female; starting weapon is a staff with wood-elemental

- Second character is a man with a tall, brute body structure with a beast-like face; starting weapon is a pair of claws with metal-elemental

- Another character (not necessarily the third) is a young slim man; starting weapon is a bracelet or ring shaped with water-elemental

- The character who starts with fire-elemental wields a sword or dual-swords

- Characters can equip weapons with different elementals but always the same type

- Enemies can range from spiders to tigers to humans

- Can do errands or side quests; can pick an option to behave negatively

- Can gather materials from surroundings or foes to craft weapons or armors

Didn't see it in the video, and it isn't Phelios. This has been stumping me for a long time. I honestly can't remember what you play the game as so it may not be a vehicle but a character but it would still be a top-down view.

@Black_Knight_00: I got the answer from a different forum.

The game I'm looking for is 'Seal of Evil'

Thanks anyway for answering! :D

Console- Playstation

Genre- RPG/Action-Adventure

Protagonist- A male lead character with white hair and I believe a red shirt/coat (Not Dante or DMC).

You started out in a field area with a couple of bad guys you can kill for experience points. I am pretty sure the save points were diamond shaped crystalline figures.

You could venture into a castle style dungeon right away by going over a bridge. Inside were bad guys in the form of ghosts, golems, and dog-like creatures. It had a very basic leveling and equipment system, but the style was very fun for the time.

Any help is much appreciated. I loved the game, and it was so underrated.

Dragon Valor

I wish it was, but that isn't the one I'm thinking of. Looks like a cool game though.

#1498 Posted by RainFeelsGood (8 posts) -

Hi.
Here's the best description I can give...

You race a spaceship through 3D levels, and it's played from a bird's eye view. The levels are different spacey maps, desert-like, industrial, canyons, etc. You've got weapons and shields on the spaceships, and pieces break off if you shoot at them or crash into the wall. The game must have come out somewhere around 2003 - 2007.
