    OK. I know this isn't very descriptive, but it's all i remember.
    The game was for PS1.
    It was a side scroller, and it had similar graphics to Metal Slug. You were a kid.
    You started in a village and made your way to a castle, then to to Egypt and fought a giant sphinx. I remember that the game was as hard as fuck (at least at the time)

    Any ideas? And no, it's not i wanna be the guy.

    I remember this game I rented a while ago, it was like some car chase game where at one point you have to somehow take down an very large piece of earth moving equipment, and somewhere else in the game you have to drive on the docks to certain points so you could get pictures, and you were timed. Pretty sure it was from a Japanese developer.

    Best I can think of is Swarm Assault.

    You didn't really combine things in that game though.

    This was an ooold game for the PC. It was a top view flight action game kind of like galaga in terms of design, but didn't look anything like it, kind of looked like metal slug but as a galaga game. I remember very little about it but you could buy upgrades after each little "mission". There were lots of missiles and what not.

    There was this sidescroller (I think.) game for PS1 where you played a little boy with a blue shirt and an orange (not sure about this) cap. You have powers that let you shoot this green plasma out of your fists to defend yourself from these shadow-creatures. I think the game starts out on a cliffside...

    Anyone? I loved this game. :buddy:

    This is a pretty old game for the pc now. It's a point and click game. You wake up from being captured, or something, I forgot how you get in the mess; and right at the start, you wake up in a locked room, tied to a chair in the middle of a room with a nice big rug, well furnished, and a big fucker tarantula kind of spider infront of you. The spider is about 6 inches tall, maybe 1ft, and about 3-4ft long. You escape by knocking over an oil lamp that's I think resting on the carpet, and you tug it with your feet, it spills and sets the spider, rug, and ropes on fire. You get out the room by searching around and you find a key in a drawer.

    I think the name has the word 'mirror' in it, but I'm not sure. and I think it was the second one of the series.

    Oh yeah and you're some middle-aged blonde guy with short hair

    Broken Sword, maybe? The character kinda fits the description, and it's point and click, but I haven't played it myself.

    Yup, Broken Sword 2: The Smoking Mirror.

    Sounds like Impossible Creatures to me.

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Broken-Sword...6541030&sr=8-2

    It was a shit tonne easier than I thought.

    And it's only 30 fucking pence!

    May as well do my own request:

    There was a very old game for PC played from an isometric perspective. You played as a blue bird that carried a magnet around in his claws. You could use the magnets to pick stuff up and solve puzzles, and I think you had to fight tanks and things inside army bases. It was very cartoony and brightly coloured.

    A PSX game, it was Japanese but I think they ported it. You played this boy who was like experimented on and had psychic powers, it was extremely violent.

    EDIT: Nevermind found it, it's called Galerians.

    Game I'm searching for was a game you played a clown with one-cycled bike. it was 2d and you collected ice cream and such things. It was for Amiga

    The other game was for Amiga too, you played as a little chicken, can't remember anything else, but 2d too.

    This sidescroller for (windows 95 era) PC and possibly other systems at the time. You played as this little fat kid with a beanie



    though I'm not sure if it had the propeller. Anyway, you started out in Alcatraz I believe, and you had to escape/maybe fight a boss. Once you escaped, you were on this go kart driving down a highway in California dodging obstacles and shit... then I think you got to the next level which was the Grand Canyon and then the third was the Alamo...

    NEVERMIND I FOUND IT IT'S CALLED ARCADE AMERICA

    I can't remember the name of a game: It was a platformer, I think the character used was female, and I'm pretty sure the first level was in a jungle. I remember flying on... something... across some water as one level. I think i also remember a woman on a robot or something outside a cave, just before the flying part. I remember a huge chinese/japanese blimp and a level with lava and i think cart tracks. It was a 2d sidescroller. May have been for playstation or sega saturn.

    Not very descriptive I know, but I do remember loving the game.

    There was a game that I played a while ago, no idea what console. Basically you started at the bottom of a tower and had to get to up by going around the side of it. It had really strange 3d graphics and there were blue balls trying to get you. Something like that, anybody got any idea?

    If not Raptor, then maybe Tyrian?

    theres a game im trying to remember. it was ps1 for sure. you played as this young guy. it was a side scrolling game and your only weapon was this blue beam on a glove that worked alot like Gmods "Phyisics Gun". you could pick up objects and throw them at enemys or you could pick up the enemys and bash them against the ground till they exploded. there were a bunch of traps like meat grinders and such in the floor, you had to shove 4-5 enemys in them then they would jam and you could get threw. it was one of my favorite ps1 games. I dont remeber anything else

    Anyone remember the name of that PS2 game where you pretty much controlled fireworks? I don't remember what style it was, as I never played it, but I wanted to pick it up.

    Edit: Nevermind, found it. It was Fantavision.

    Does anyone remember the old Wooden Labyrinth Maze Game, I think that came with XP when it first shipped or something? It was kinda like a tech demo, where you controlled one of those wooden marble labyrinth things by rotating it, and it was really well rendered. I looked everywhere and couldn't find it.
