Any of these? Seal Online, Trickster Online, Toontown Online, Survival Project
Snipperclips?Arghh hopefully someone knows this.
I’m looking for a local co-op game, I think it’s available on Switch. It’s a Japanese indie game, has a very simple style. Every player controls a block or cube like character with cat features, and it’s a side scrolling platformer where you have to overcome obstacles by stacking on top of each other so the player on top is high enough to jump and leap over a gap, that kinda stuff.
I believe someone made a thread about it on era recently but I’ve been searching for over an hour and can’t find.
I got friends coming over tonight and was planning on playing this :(
Nope and nope :(. It looked extremely obscure. I believe it was mostly black and white, except the cubey cats were different colors (so players could see which cat they controlled). It must’ve been for at least six players.
Vague things like a minigame with three hockey nets and each team scored on each other. A volcano level with levels to each floor, an ice level on the mountain. It's been 15-16 years since I've played it but I was thinking about it and how much fun it was.
Possibly Broderbund's The Playroom?I have been looking for a game i played in mid to late 90s on PC. If i remember correctly it was kind of a painting game, where you could use prebuilt assets and characters. It took place in a big building where you could click on different things to get funny animations with the different "cartoony" characters. It may have consisted of many smaller mini games and not just for "painting" purposes.
Anyone got an idea?
It was kind of the same art style as the game below:
roadkill?Okay, I realize this isn't much to go on. But there was this GTA clone on PS2/Xbox. It was set in a post-apocalyptic world and the hook/pitch was that it was metal as fuck. The radio stations in your car played hair metal shit and there were DJs who were 'comically' right-wing or redneck type idiots.
That State Farm ad with Aaron Rodgers where they play Judas Priest got me thinking about it and now it is making me nuts.
First one: RHEM or Syberia?There was a first person point and click adventure in the vein of Myst and the other classics in the 90's on PC. This was on Windows already I think. It was German probably. I played through the demo many times. You had these pretty good looking (for the time) pre-rendered backgrounds which saw you explore a train station at the start of the game, solving puzzles and eventually getting away on the train. I think the next part was either inside the train or inside another building, but I remember it was kinda complex so I would not remember the exact solution even when I solved it - then again it was in a language I wasn't fluent with. Like many games of the era, including dungeon RPGs, it had a large HUD I think with all the important info, the items you own and whatnot. It was most certainly a CD-ROM game already, such graphics were definitely not on floppy.
The second mystery game I am looking for was a Christmas game. It had isometric graphics, I honestly am not sure if it was rudimental 3D or everything was 2D. It was a bit like a 2.5D version of Pac-Man in a sense, with interconnected maze-like levels. It was Christmas-themed as I said, and it was so long ago I can't remember who was the actual main character, but there surely was Santa, there were houses with gifts to deliver too, and there were enemies like a bunny with a boombox roaming the levels, trying to stop you. It was a snowy level that kinda looked like snowy streets in a maze-like structure. This was also on PC, it may have been a DOS game. 90's stuff certainly, graphics were beyond the capabilities of 8-bit or 16-bit consoles I think.
Escape from Delirium? Also check for the easy Maniac Mansion and Leisure Suit Larry series.There is this old point and click adventure on pc I just never can get the name of. You played a dude with a green vest and red brownish hair. It was set during the night and I don't remember if it was on an Island but there was a circus or something I believe. That's all I got.
May I suggest emailing the museum and asking if someone working there knows, especially for someone who has been working there for a long time? You may also have luck emailing the group that used to own the museum.Alright, I’ve tried looking for this for a long time and all my searches come up empty. This was a game at a place in town called CoSI, essentially a science museum for kids with lots of interactive stuff. There was an area called “Waterworks” with lots of water related exhibits: water physics, info on aquatic life, etc. They had some PCs in this area that were running what I’m pretty sure was a Duke Nukem 3D mod. If it wasn’t a Duke mod it was at least in the Build Engine. In this game you were a scuba diver exploring a water treatment plant, and I’m pretty sure there was like a beach or seaside area as well. I know you were a diver because you could kick, which was Duke Nukem’s kick sprites but drawn over to be wearing scuba flippers. You had a breath meter just like in Duke Nukem and I think you could find scuba gear to breathe longer underwater. You had health and could die from drowning or fall damage but there were no enemies to my knowledge. I think there was green “untreated” water that would hurt you if you touched it? Might be just mixing in memories of Doom there though.
I want to know what this was because there was no explanation in the game or outside of it of what it was, if there was any goal to accomplish, or why it existed at the museum. I was old enough (like fourth grade) to be able to figure out things like that most of the time but this thing remained a mystery. It’s entirely possible this was a custom program somebody made specifically for CoSI and nobody else will ever know what I’m talking about besides my brother. This exhibit doesn’t exist there anymore and a different group owns that building now, though it is still a kids’ science museum in the same style.
Was it themed after any certain war? Revolutionary, Civil, etc.This is one I never played.
A long while ago, my uncle was playing some sort of strategy game on his PC, probably around 2005 or 2006, though he could have been using an emulator:
The game is a grid based top down, maybe turn based strategy game, like a tactical RPG maybe. The main area of play is a green field with grass and trees, etc. The graphics are cartoony, and feature an aproximation of a sort of european warfare style conflict, like the revolutionary war, with red and blue coat outfits. In addition to the cartoony character sprites, there are cannons on the field that also occupy a space. There may have been rivers and wooden bridges on the map.
In terms of graphical fidelity, it reminds me of a sort of Gameboy Advance or SNES style pixel art.
Burai, Super Shell Monsters Story, Megami Tensei 1+2 (SNES), Magna Braben, Burning Heroes, Paladin's Quest, Sansara Naga 2, Shin Momotaro Densetsu, Slayers, or Super Ninja Boy?Let's see if someone knows the name of this game I played in Japanese as a kid and never was able of getting to far as I couldn't figure out how to save:
Maybe even it's a famous game, I am not versed on jrpgs outside FF
- SNES JRPG
- The beginning/nearly beginning is inside a dungeon/tower/temple
- There are priest/monks NPC at the entrance/in some safe rooms where you can replenish your HP drinking from what it seems to be a jar with holy water
- The members of your party follow you while walking, they use the previous tiles the leader steeped in
- An early boos was some kind snake, a half woman half snake chimera, maybe, I am not sure
First one: RHEM or Syberia?
Second one: Check here

AeroFighters Assault?There was a flight simulator game that i played on N64. You could pick from a variety of different planes and each plane had different missiles and an "ultimate move". Like the Japanese pilots ultimate move was basically a giant laser beam and the American pilots was a barrage of tomahawk missiles. Oh and the pilots were basically anime characters. And i remember that one of the levels was a sea battle against an ENORMOUS battleship.
I've been trying to remember it's name, but I never can.
Probably not cartoony enough, but could it be Liberty or Death? It came out on various systems (NES, Genesis, SNES) as well as PC.
That's Midnight Wanderers.Trying to remember a run & gun shooter/platformer (1-2 player co-op as I recall). It would've been an arcade game released prior to 1993 (I want to say after 1990 but not certain.) I think the player characters were some kind of elf (not certain) but they used guns (again not certain, might've been magic). First stage boss might've been a tree (possibly followed by or including a short underground section?) There was a level or boss fight on a flying ship of some kind? Can't remember if there was an enemy or if you were just trying to blow up the ship itself. The aesthetic might've been sort of future/fantasy.
Edit: US or European release most likely, no idea about region of developer/publisher
Wow, many thanks, been trying to remember what this was forever. Had completely forgotten the other 2 titles that were part of this as well.
Karate dude going left would be enough to identify the game as Kung Fu Master
Man, you serious? :)
Lmao! Dude, I feel so dumb now. I should have googled eh. I did find the game on an iPhone XS Max Case (The case comes with over 32 games) but I never thought it was an official name for Asian market.
Maybe Felony 11-79?I need your help, it's a game for PSx and I remember you have some tasks to do in a car, like hitting fresco in a pyramid and hit bombs or something to prevent them to explode probably, everything you do is inside the car the character never get out and I think the game was very short, I watched some vids with collections of PSx released games and can't find it. So, I think this is my last resort.
Probably Power Pete.Alright, here’s a doozy. It’s a game that’s been in my mind forever and a half but I’m certain there’s no way I could find it.
It’s a top down adventure-ish game where you play a small little stereotypical cartoon soldier (I believe he was either shirtless or just a beige tank top with green cargo shorts and big dumb black boots) going around what is effectively candy land. I don’t know if all the levels were candy land but I vividly remember the environment being basically giant gum drops, candy canes, and chocolate rabbits and stuff. I believe the enemies were things like the chocolate rabbits but I do not remember that part clearly enough. You shot and killed stuff with a silly tommy gun or something and the soldier would make a goofy ass noise when he died. I played this when I was super young, must’ve been either 98 or 99 and it was on the PC. I don’t remember much more than that but I recall being stuck because it was weirdly maze like and confusing.
Sports Car GT or Need for Speed III come to my mind.Got curious and want to ask this game here:
It is a racing game for PC, yet I am unsure when exactly it was released before early 2000s and whether or not it had ports. It featured colorful cars, albeit it wasnt too stylized. It featured a deep purple/violet colored background for car & track selection.
I think its from 90s, but I have no solid proof.
It wasnt either of those.
Could it be one of the Screamer Rally games?It wasnt either of those.
I do remember it was racing around laps, not off road races. There was visible race track map that looped in track selection.
Although looking at those games, I remember it wast as technically good looking. It might have mid or even early 90s racing game.
I dont think it was that. I dont remember that visible backgrounds and exotic locations. It wasnt off-road like that.
