its a game like defend your castle, and the attacking guys are made of cubes, and you can throw them into the air or you can put them in your church so they work for you and you can make them harvest resources, be a archer, or be a warrior. you can also buy various upgrades for your castle.

I played a game on Kongergate in 2012 or earlier. In this game you have to put all sorts of things, like mines, bows, teleporters, whatever yellow man received more damage. There are many tasks that give points. Then more points, then more weapons open and then more you can put it.

I have this game in my mind that is a scrolling shoot-em-up. It has sort of sudo-3D graphics. What you do is pick up weapons and basically try to shoot up as many things as you can. The screen will also continuously scroll but you can move your character around the screen normally (not affected by the constant scrolling). I played this VERY long ago and I was wondering if anyone knew what game it was. Sorry I can’t be more specific.

I used to play this old PC game with robots. I remember it as 3d, but it must’ve probably been amongst the first, back then. You could put different chassis (I think I remember one being called a caterpillar), weapons, on them. You would then release them through some kind of path (think Tower defence) to battle something. Either other robots, or structures, can’t remember exactly.

It must be at least 7-8 years old (but it could be 15 years old aswell. Can’t remember this at all).

Uhm a game where you owned a farm and could plant trees and wheet, selling the wheet. You would loose the game when the tombstones reached your house… any idea?

The game is played like Castle Quest but by defeating enemies you earn money, which can be used at shops to buy gear (Such as new weapons to boost strength, new armor to boost defense, and items)

Upgrade Complete? VERY similar.

I’m looking for a bit older PC game that was most likely developed by some smaller game company (I’m assuming it’s from 2004 and up).

It is a Mob management game.. call it turn-based strategy/simulation. You play the role of a mafia/mob boss, and compete against other mafia bosses in the city (cpu controlled). You can win in several ways.. like taking out other bosses or having the most Wealth Points (Those are earned when you buy things of value, like expensive paintings, sculptures etc), or do kind things like donating your money to churches, hospitals etc.

The game is turn-based.. you give out all the orders, press end turn/end day and then see what kind of results your actions brought. You need to hire mobsters to work for you, and each one has different kinds of skills and professions, from thugs to personal bodyguards. They also have the trust and loyalty stats, and you were able to reward them manually if you wanted to to make them more loyal. Each day you can also give them orders.. for example tell one to rob people on the street for that day and some other to guard one of your businesses. And yes, you can buy buildings like car dealerships for ex which open new actions etc. There are also cops in the game that you can draw attention to if you do bad things.. and can also bribe them to make them overlook your actions.

There is no actual “action” in the game as far as my knowledge goes.. you can’t see your mob actually go and have a shootout against the rival gang.. only reports of how the whatever action went.. like [This guy of yours] earned you $x while robbing people etc.

That’s all I could think of at the moment. I think it’s one of those games that you can get for free, but only for a limited time unless you buy the full version, or it has limited content.

It was a game where you could fly around on and control a dragon. PC game, probably at least…. 8-10 years old? Man, I’m really dating myself. Anyway, the game seemed to be two part, an rpg where you controlled some woman that wasn’t that great, then when she got to ride on the dragon. Both were like… third person view iirc. Anyone got anything?

Drakengard? Was a PS2 game from about that time ago that fits that description pretty well.

I got the name wrong. I was thinking of Drakan: The Ancient’s Gates. A little looking into it tells me there was a PC game in the series from 1999: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8Pymj_5z9Y

I need help remembering a game. I think it was called Learning something but it was an educational game and you find a time machine in the attic or something and you go back in time helping historical people with your companion who has a real messed up face.

Posted about this in another thread by mistake. I’m looking for a point and click escape game where you visit a house/building after receiving a letter and a doctor greets you there and escorts you to your room. Things are strange and unsettling, and you find you’re locked in. You have to explore and solve puzzles and in the end it is discovered that the doctor who let you in is not actually a doctor at all, he is an insane escaped patient of the actual doctor, and all of the people you meet in the building are also escaped patients. The building is some sort of asylum I guess. The game is set in the past, and I’m pretty sure it’s in 3d. Anyone know the name?

It’s a top down shooter where you can dig on the ground to get materials to build all sorts of stuff to defend your ship. It also features a day and night cycle. Tried googling all the keywords I could think of and can’t find it.

Can’t think of what you’re looking for, but a very similar game is balloon in a wasteland.

I think the one mentioned above is ‘Morningstar’.

Actually maybe not, Morningstar features a crashed ship and exploration and repairs but I don’t think I remember any shooting.

Im looking for a game, it was a football game, 2D, you had to create a team and you can join a tournament and a cup, you could chance how your 3 players looked. I think one enemy team was called Mushroom Heads or something.

I think it was a medal of honor game, but it was definitely a shooter game I played maybe 5 years back. I recall being on a beach, and allies would come in from the water I was young at the time so I would shoot my own allies (you could do that) I also remember people on mounted MG’s shooting at me and such. Any help?

Hi, I’m looking for a puzzle-type game that I think was about a boy who dies. It’s a cube and you have to jump around the cube spinning it to find the exit. There were floaty type monster ghost things too. Can anyone help? Many thanks :)

It was a experimental game where you could do crazy things, for ex. A happy bowling ball just opened it’s mind to eat it’s dinner. Or a egglant grim reaper is in a ice cream shop, and also, Perspective. Looks like a knife, but is really a bird.

Thanks for replying but no – it was a cube, so you’d go onto a new face or could move up or down, and you had to spin the cube so that the exit door was facing up or you couldn’t go through it. Five is a cool game, though.
