Little update, iv been searching still with no luck at all. i think the game is part of a multi game program. though i cant figure it out. its extreamly similar to Lords of doom, but sci fi in a lab or space station.

In my experience, these multigame discs are almost always made very small studios and only distributed in their countries of origin. Unfortunately it's going to be very hard to find.

Still no one has gotten the game I can't remember. :( Here is another thing I think I remember about it, if I remember right. The blue cape the character had wasn't part of his outfit but it was a power up. It's like a mushroom in Mario. If you have it and get hit you lose the cape instead of dying and losing a life. With no cape you are killed with 1 shot. XD This was like 20 years ago so I'm not 100% sure on if I remember things right.

The fact the cape was a powerup. I googled "get the cape" and bingo. Anyway, you're welcome ;)

Hi all, I'm trying to remember the name of a game I played in the late 90's early 2000's on my PC. It was probably on Windows 98, maybe Windows XP. It was a 2D top down game with a gray haired character (a woman I think) walking around with her hands behind her back searching rooms. She would look up at you and say some funny comment every now and then. She might have been searching for alters but I'm not sure of that. It is like mystic towers but is top down where mystic towers is more of a side view. Any help would be great.

Been poking around but no luck so far. Any more details you can add?
#360 Posted by HeatherFairy (3 posts) -
I don't remember much else about this game. The woman might have been some sort of wizard because I have a picture of her in my head with a robe on (maybe blue) and her hair was in a bun on top of her head. My son remembers it as well and he thinks it might have been around 2003 that I played it. I have a very vague memory of some kind of creatures/things you had to kill. Also a vague memory of the rooms having traps/puzzles in them. I know not much help. Thanks for looking!

Hey guys, so there was this game I played when I was young...the problem is 4 years of college has ruined my memory. I'm gonna describe the very few details I remember and hope someone may be able to come up with it (its been bugging me for years!)...

So first off I believe it was a Genesis game (although there is a very slight chance it was NES). It was a fantasy type game, side scroller, you had the option to choose which character you wanted to play as before each level, and I remember one of the characters being a rock man, and I believe he had an extendable arm haha

thats it...thats all ive got...maybe ill get lucky...

Guys, I'm looking for a game that I used to play +5 years ago. I don't remember much about it. It was PC adventure game, one of the main attractions in this game was that you could take pictures of all living things, monsters, humans, even fly's and you were getting money (or something, I don't remember) for it. You could also fight with monsters, swim using motorboat. There was one mission which was motorboat race, maybe that will help.

#369 Posted by thaemz (2 posts) -
I played this game when I was about 9, so that puts us about 13 years back. Now this was on a Windows-95 operating PC, and the game was 2D old style arcade platform, with a variety of levels. You would jump up and down just like old super mario. The game had a rich variety for mobs if i remember correctly, but that's not for sure. Now I remember lava being a important ingredient, and maybe there was two characters you could choose from. That's all I can remember. Been bugging me for years.. Kinda hard to guess, considering all the platformers throughout history, but this one is really old.

this game was the best thing to ever happen to my child hood ,while really difficult for me to play it.

That pretty much describes every platformer that there is. Also, I'm not sure what you mean by "variety for mobs," maybe if you can explain that better it could be important. I'll take a guess: Great Giana Sisters
#373 Posted by thaemz (2 posts) -
No, that looks just like super mario! The game i'm referring too had better indept graphic, and variety of mobs I mean different kinds of mobs, not just one or two. But i'm not sure about that, since it been so long. Erm.. can't really remember more than that.

Hi guys I have a few requests: 1. A 2D platformer for PC from the 90s. The protagonist is a yellow faced ball (similar to Pac-Man) and the objective of the levels is to collect every star on the screen. Once you do that, a big star will appear and it's usually located where you started the level. And when you get that star, the exit door will appear. I think the enemies can't be killed. There are 4 bosses and they're all giant heads. The first boss is pretty much easy. You hide in the bottom right corner and shoot stars at him. In the second one there's a time limit and I think you have to break boxes with exclamation mark on them. The third boss is in space and you are in rocket. I don't remember much about the final boss except that he is purple. 2. This is a falling block puzzle game for NES. It plays like Columns and there's The Statue of Liberty on the right side of the screen. Each time when you finish a level, the background color and music change. 3. Just to make it short here's a link http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20120524073840AAQva9F Also this is a 2d platformer and it's probably from the early 90s

I'm trying to find a game I played in the 90s, I can't remember much since I was very young but If I remember correctly it was an action/adventure game You played as a chinese monk who had a long black chinese braid, and wore only blue shorts. In the beggining level of the game you were in a floating piece of land that had some ruins, there were also some short blue aliens on the land that you could talk with (if you attacked them they would fight back and they were very hard to beat). You could also fly and travel to nearby floating ruins.(one of them had some giant spiders/ants as enemies)

Since nothing else comes to mind, I'll try this game again: 1990s, long braid and blue clothes makes me think of Little Big Adventure/Twinsen's Odyssey. If that's not it, please try to provide more details: was it 3D or 2D, how was the camera, did it have RPG elements, describe bosses if you remember them.

It was 3d and the camera was 3rd person and I remember flying being one of the most important aspects of the game. The protagonist was topless and very muscular and wore only blue shorts (or a little blue skirt) and sandals I think. I can't remember anything else except that the intro video showed some windmills in the beggining and a boy (maybe the protagonist) flying, I may be wrong here but I think the whole game had to do with dreams and such...Unfortunately I can't remember if it had RPG elements (I doubt it) or if it had any bosses since I didn't progress the game very far

Actually the mole game is a little bit newer because I was playing it on Windows 98 on windowed mode so it wasn't a dos game. It was a small and simple game. All you have to do is to go right jumping from elevator to elevator, avoiding enemies, go through teleporters (sometimes), collecting some crystals to turn off the lasers that block the main item and take that item then go back to the start. I remember one of the main items was a telephone and there is also a time limit. Thanks for the help ;)

Really stumped on the mole game Was Magical Jewelry correct?

Yeah, Magical Jewelry was correct. As for the other ones, probably I am the only one who played those games.

Hi, probably no one has ever played this, but... looking for a recent indie: a short gravity-switching puzzle game on Unity Web Player. team was ca. 5-6 people (I think they were czech, but not sure) probably from 2011 or 12, I found it through Unity's web site & it had its own site but now i can't find it for the life of me Its 3D, 3rd person, avatar is a little kid in a chicken suit. There is a ghost lady who tells you you're gonna die etc. (backstory is: it's halloween and you picked a bad place to go trick-or-treating and must now escape this dungeon/grave) So you maneuver through this dungeon by falling, avoiding spikes and changing the room's gravity with orange beams. Also, candy is a collectable item (it floats). Visually very dark, levels are lots of stone and kind of aztec style. The game is short, after a few levels of turning the room upsidedown to move blocks and open doors, the boss is the ghost lady who shoots chomping teeth which home you down. Anyone?

So I played a demo on xbox 360 a few years ago and it was a military like game but the military killed mythical creatures like werewolves and stuff. The person you played as had a magical mark on his hand it gave it some special ability. Any help would be appreciated.
