Hey guys,

Got a problem here.I can remember an FPS game from the 90's I used to play on my dads computer, and I was thinking about it today and I can't for the life of me remember the name of it.So hopefully if I tell you as much as I can remember, someone might know what game I'm talking about.

I really don't have much of a memory left of the game, but i'll do the best I can; The level I remember most strongly featured a fairly large environment, it was outdoor and fairly dark. Just near the spawn was a car, and the car had a skull on the side(I was pretty young, sorry). I remember you could drive it, or get in a gunner seat and use the turret it had mounted on it. There were a few bad guys you had to shoot up, the environment was urban I think, it was all concrete anyway. Oh, and the game was 3d, but it could very well have been sprite based, the car was 3d though.

I know thats not much to go on, but it was a long time ago, and I never got to play it for very long. Its from the 90's I know.

Sorry to be so vague. But if anyone remembers playing this please let me know coz it's just about killing me. And for no reason at all..

Thanks for any help!

oooo I THINK I also barely remember this game. I have it pictured in my head, and I remember the skull as the logo of some sorts. I think the car was more of a buggy or something. It had platforms with enemies on it and such. IIRC, this game was around the time there was Sim Town, Sim Copter, Sim Park , Theme Hospital etc.

Will do as well, thanks. I'll post here if I get an answer.

Mhofever, it sounds like we are on the same page. Can you remember anything else about it? It was more of a scrap buggy thing I think. I remember it looking pretty brutal.

I think I remember that the buggy was red or the enemies, can't tell but you had this mini gun as your only weapon I think.

Are you sure it's an FPS and not a car combat game? It could be Twisted Metal...

TC made a fairly accurate description I'd say.
