    2 flash games (I'm pretty sure they were both on Newgrounds).

    1. There is a planet floating in the middle of the screen, and there are these enemy spaceships trying to destroy it. To defeat them, you click on the ships and the missiles they fire to make them crash into each other. As you keep playing, your planet evolves and gains these big spikes that help protect the planet should one of the enemies attack it.

    2. It's like a tower defense game, only it's a side-scrolling platformer. You can choose a monster to play as (I chose ghost, though I think you could also choose a zombie and a vampire.) You are placed in an arena with several platforms and a big object in the middle that you have to protect from swarms of enemies who come in from the sides. There are 2 ways to defeat enemies: You can attack them, or eat them. Eating enemies fills up a meter that allows your character to evolve. Every time you evolve, you can choose one of 2 forms, each of which has unique strengths and weaknesses.

    Any idea of what these games are? Reply

      The second one sounds like Trap Master.

      That's not it. The play style is very similar, but those aren't the same monsters from the game I played. Also, I don't think there was any blood.

      The first one is definitely Tetraform. It took me a while.


      TroperFromItaly, you are awesome.

      I was trying to remember more about the 2nd game, I remembered that the enemies were little silhouette creatures wielding spears and other weapons.

      Bump. Doesn't anyone know what the 2nd one is?

      Bump.

      Have you tried asking on Newgrounds forums?

      Do I need an account on Newgrounds to do that? I don't want to make one just to ask this one question.

      I FINALLY FOUND THE SECOND ONE! It's called NTCreature2.

    Alright, this might be a little vague, but I'm looking for the name of a side-scroller game for PC featuring the Power Rangers. It would have been made/ released between 1998 and 2005. Probably. The game mechanics are pretty simple: you navigate a Power Ranger riding on a flying jetski up/ down to avoid obstacles, while blasting the enemies who are flying in from the right side of the screen. The blaster had only one sound effect, a very specific sound, almost like a robot trying to say "kitty-boh-boh," if the robot's voice chip had only the sounds of explosions to work with. (Forgive my terrible onomatopoeia.) I think the enemies were puttys, so maybe it was the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers? I can't say for sure.

    The game was very cheaply made/ cheap looking, and I think it might have been the sort of game you get as a CD that comes in a box of cereal. Any help figuring out what this game was called would be appreciated! Reply

      The Jetski thing suggests that it was a Lost Galaxy game (they had the Jet Jammers)

      ^ It's entirely possible that the game was based on Lost Galaxy, but google searching for "power rangers 'lost galaxy' 'computer game'" and variants thereof hasn't helped me find the game I'm looking for. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

    It was a game and you had this half-circle thing in your backpack. You could visit multiple buildings including the home of a guy who is never home, a dude that thinks your the paperboy, a house where there's a piano, a shop where you can buy bad jokes.

    Does anyone know what I'm tallking about or did I make the game up? Reply

      Did it have graphics? What were they like?

      It had graphics, can't remember them enough to describe. I think it was in the 90;s though

      PC game or console game? EDIT- Oh, I see the title now. Sorry. What was the objective?

      I honestly don't remember. I think that the half-circle thing is part of it because I vaguely remember you getting the second half from the piano house later in the game

      Bump. I also remember how at the guy who is never home, you can leave a message for him. I don't remember if he ever followed up on it

    I seem to remember a PC game from when I was little - I think around the days of Windows 2000 or so - called Meeps or something? I don't remember any real specifics - I believe it might have been a get-the-critters-out-of-the-maze type of thing - but one thing that stands out in my mind is the password for one particular level being GIKE. Reply

      In the Quest for Glory games a Meep is a creature that looks like a ball of fur with legs and eyes. Perhaps there is a Sierra arcade subgame that features them.

    A game I played in primary school in Britain. Basically, you'd have to look around a house. There was a hallway and you could look in coat pockets. In the front room there was a mouse hole and there was also a kitchen. I think you had to try and find a mouse or something.

    All I remember is you could interact with a lot of stuff to try and find something (I think it was a mouse, but I can't really remember) you could go into different rooms as you unlocked different levels.

    Thanks. Reply

      This reminds me of an oldie Adventure Game on Amstrad CPC, Le Passager du Temps. But I'm not sure there was an English version...

    Not sure if it's okay to ask about this here, but I've been dying to find this game I played as a kid. I'm pretty sure the purpose of it was to teach kids about math. I remember at the beginning you got to design your characters, which were small, round creatures. Then you had to load them onto a boat, and later they had to fight some monster. I know that's all frustratingly vague but it's all I can remember. Finding that game would be like a window into my childhood. Reply

    I used to like to watch family members play games when I was young, and there is a couple games I vaguely remember but I don't know what games they are. In the first one, at one point you come across a bunch of snakes in trees, and either the main character or the narrator makes a reference to Harry Potter. I'm not sure what exactly he says, but I think he says something about wishing there was someone there who could speak snake? I think this was a point and click adventure game on the PC

    All I remember of the other game is my father being upset because he got stuck in it, and found out they deliberately made it unwinnable if you did something incorrectly earlier in the game, which he had done. It was for the PC, and I'm pretty sure you could switch between a (i think dark haired but not sure) male character and (I think possibly blond?) female character either during the same level or alternate levels, and it may have been a point and click adventure.

    I might have gotten a detail wrong because these are really vague memories... Reply

      If the hair colours are the wrong way around, the second one could be one of the Broken Sword games.

      I think Broken Sword is right. I remember the graphics style of the 3D games. Though, I can't find anything about any of the 3D games having a unwinnable condition? I guess it was a different game he had that problem with and I falsely attributed it to the Broken Sword game in my memory.

    I remember when I was younger that I had a program on my computer that took me to a kind of game library where I could download and play games for a limited time. When you would play the games, you would be taken to some kind of screen where you had to click play or a purple coin to start playing (which would insert itself like it would in an arcade machine). It had a starting amount ranging from 1 to 4, but you could only play twice for free (or three if you had 3 coins for some reason) before you had to pay to play more.

    Yes, I realize that this was probably illegal, but I was a young kid and didn't know any better at the time. I didn't buy any more coins to play the games, though, luckily.

    Anyone who knows what I'm talking about? Reply

      This sounds like that Wildtangent Arcade thing (or other similar programs) that comes preinstalled on some computers. The logo was a purple flying "W" (which is now green), and you would get coins (which I'm pretty sure used to be purple) that would let you play a watered-down version of the game for free, and you could buy more coins, or just buy the full version of the game, with real money. I'm 100% certain this was legal, since Wildtangent was letting you play free versions of their own games for limited amounts of play. Do you remember if this program happened to have Polar Bowler as one of the games?

    I think this game was released two year or three years ago. The English translation (originally a Japanese puzzler) was pretty bad, but the concept was super cute.

    Basically, you move around two characters, a boy and a girl whose names aren't mentioned, and you help them overcome obstacles such as locked doors, rain, and road blocks in order to meet. At the end of each level (when they finally meet) they do this "after-school dance" thing.

    I remember playing a bunch of different game demos that were all piled together. It would let you play to a certain point and then immediately jump to the next game. They were 2D animation. I only remember a couple: an astronomer in a tower looking up at something, robot dogs in an arena located in a dark alley, and a more realistically drawn point and click one with a man and woman in a cottage. I would have played them between '95 and '05. Do any of these sound familiar? Reply

    I asked about this a couple years ago, but I'm hoping someone will know the answer this time around.

    In the late 1990s/early 2000s, I played a lot of flash games on Disney's website. One of them was a Tarzan game. It was a platformer, and a 2D sidescroller. You had to climb vines, jump between vines and platforms, and I'm pretty sure there were enemies, but I don't remember how you fought them. The game had levels, but I don't remember if it was timed. I do know the levels were fairly large.

    I've tried to look for an archive/link of this game, or even pictures, for the nostalgia. Unfortunately I don't know the name, and "Tarzan web game" is too vague. Does anyone remember this game? What it was called, or any more specific details that could help someone else remember? Thanks! Reply

      http://www.theisozone.com/downloads/pc/windows-games/disneys-tarzan-action-game/ It wouldn't be this right?

      Unfortunately not. :( I actually still have my copy of that one! No, I know for a fact that this one was online only/a flash game of some sort, because we had dial-up and I could never play for long because my mom needed the phone.

      The sad thing is I remember this game, but I don't know the name either. Probably the only reason I remember it is because my childhood friend wouldn't let me play it on her computer out of spite because I wouldn't let her color in my favorite Pokemon color book. You played as baby/child Tarzan right? I think we're talking about the same thing?

      Accidentally double posted. Ignore.

      I might be thinking of the same game Everdream is talking about, but it was on a computer game called "Tarzan Activity Center." You started out as Baby Tarzan, and you had to save valuables (?) by knocking them off of each platform without getting caught by the baby leopard. After you complete enough levels, you play as Child Tarzan, and you have to save elephants by knocking them into the swimming hole. The last level has Adult Tarzan, but I never actually made it that far.

      Tarzan Activity Center is what I was talking about, specifically this level which was the only level I knew about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5M9ZKAw5mE&t=3m40s

      This is not a web game, so I think the OP is talking about something different.

      Is it this game? http://www.gamefire.org/en/p-1155/tarzan_jungle_adventure.html

      Thanks for all the feedback, guys.

      Unfortunately it's not "Tarzan Activity Center" either. I'm familiar with that game, and I know it wasn't it. Also, the game I'm looking for was definitely online-only. Like, a flash game on Disney's website.

      jgrif57003: It's not that game either, but it would have been a side-scroller like that one.

      I don't have much hope for this one, but if anyone has any other ideas, I'll keep checking back from time to time. :) Thanks for all the replies!

    I remember a DS game I used to play. It was a side scroller where you were a zombie hunter attacking zombies with weapons that had limited ammo/uses, like a shotgun or a whip.

    Almost thirteen years ago, a boy told me about a game he downloaded from who-knows-where. He said that it was quite old, since it had graphics like Final Fantasy VIII or maybe older: he said that it started <<with the protagonist inside a town crawling with shadow figures, that basicaly one-shot if you came close to them. One of the most cool things that you see is a strange abomination perched high above ground, literally absorbing the light of the Moon (he explained that it was because moonlight, being just a reflection, mocks the Sun rays); some times later this creature transforms into some clawed fiend and you have to defeat it; after this, a Grim Reaper-style character appears and scold the protagonist for his action, stating that killing that thing has set free/broke the seal of something, then he commits suicide with his own scythe>>. Last thing that he told me is that the protagonist go (or maybe is teleported) somewhere else, in the wild, in a spooky place with big serpents. I know that is not much, but I really need your help, not knowing which game is this! Reply

      That sounds like that kid may have been BS ing you. Hate to say.

      The time period and mention of Grim Reapers makes me wonder if it was Grim Fandango.

      ^ highly unlikely, as that has no combat.

      Sounds kind of like some weird amalgamation of Kingdom Hearts and Parasite Eve. Definitely can't think of anything it could actually be though.

      Maybe he was really B Sing me, but I have to admit that he had quite a wild imagination. Anyway, I thank all of you for your help

    When I was younger, my grandma would play this computer game all the time. I can't remember much of it, but I think the little symbol thing on the desktop was a red block. I can't describe what the game itself was about, but i remember one level where there were layers of blocks that were always shifting left or right on alternating layers. I think it also had an overworld where you could select levels. Finally, I think it was a Popcap game because some of the other games my grandma played (Zuma, Peggle, Bejeweled, Chuzzle, etc.) were from Popcap. Reply

      Was it Alchemy?

      nope. After a while, I'm beginning to think it wasn't Popcap at all, since none of the games on their website fit the description i gave.
