I’m looking for a point-and-click kind of game that was all about logical thinking. As it progressed it got more difficult, starting from simple things to a lot more tougher stuff, ending with a puzzle using symbols.

You were supposed to answer false or true troughout the game if I remember it correctly.

Does anybody know?
Thanks

3.Third game – what I remember:
(This is very vague memory)

-The game is very old (also dating from around ‘90s);
-Perspective is “slightly-tilted-top-down” (similar to Warcraft II perspective);
-Models of characters are pre-rendered-3D;
-In first level player controls two characters (not sure if humans or some monsters), each of which is located at different sides of the screen;
-One character has a shovel and is able to dig up and close holes;
-In center of the map there is a tower (or a castle?) and on top is a king who is kinda worried and walking in a circle;
-I played this game for like 10min, so I’m not really sure what the goal was but I’m guessing it was to save the king by solving different puzzles with them two player-controlled characters;
-Player also had an interface on one side of the screen (can’t remember which). The interface had icons of skills of each characters (like digging with shovel);
-The first map was also populated with monsters and different items.

~~~Well that’s it. Any help on discovering the names of these three games would be greatly appreciated. Thank you^^

Pretty sure this is Gruntz, amazing game.

Hi guys. First post here. First time on Kongregate actually.

Anyway, was wondering if you could help me find a game. Here’s what I remember about it.

1. It’s a PC game, I’m fairly sure it ran in windows but it may have been a DOS game.
2. It’s probably from the early-mid 90’s, as I remember playing it when I was in primary school, but I could be wrong there.
3. It’s a turn-based strategy game extremely similar to Risk, however there are some differences.
4. In the game you start off owning a random country (if I recall correctly) with a large number of armies on it, something like 50 or so, every other country has about 1-4 armies on it and you’ll have an opponent who will also have around 50 armies or so. You can attack countries you share a boarder with and it’s basically random chance that one army will be another, it’s basic war of attrition. Unlike with Risk, large countries like Russia or USA aren’t split up into regions.
5. You have to move your armies from one country to another so that you can defend against other players, or computer controlled opponents.
6. There is a mode of play that assigns every country at random to the players, and I believe the game had up to four players.
7. You get more armies for every country you own, and bonus armies for owning an entire continent.
8. The graphics are rather primitive, but I don’t remember them being overly pixelated.
9. The most similar game I’ve found is Axis and Allies, but that’s much more involved and more advanced. The game I’m looking for is likely earlier, had lesser graphics and much more simple gameplay.

That’s pretty much all I can remember, any suggestions would be good. Thanks for you time.

There was a game on Kongregate (with achievements), where you played as a Russian communist/socialist. In it, you secretly bought upgrades while you raced with "fellow comrades," and you would try to sabotage them without the floating heads (forgot what they called them) seeing.

I remember vaguely about a sort of economy-type game. The economy has gone downhill and is now in a recession. You play as an ordinary joe who has to scrap a living off measly jobs with measly pay in order to prevent your life from getting mortgaged or something.

I remember a game on kongregate, it was a black and white shooter where you were a spaceship shooting other ships. It had the same background music as No time to explain and it said in it’s description that it was “colour-blind friendly”

I remember a downloadable game for pc, in the space/trade genre,the game was seen from above. In the game there was a huge grid, which would have been your space, where you would see your ship and your follower’s ships, you could see planets and stations as well. The game is from the 2000’s and I played it around 2007-2009, but my pc got restored so I lost the game. The name either started or had a “W” in it. if someone recognizes the game and knows the name please tell me, it was SO MUCH FUN!

Storyline is that it’s a vampire hunter (Hellsing I believe) trying to hunt Dracula. Gameplay takes place on a grid, so the player progresses from the bottom of the screen to the top, where Dracula is. The individual squares are minesweeper-inspired, so they will display a number which shows the surrounding treasure/monsters you may encounter (can’t remember if each number showed both, or which). Treasure can be bought and sold for potions and other equipment. The overall colour scheme of the game is shadow-based, dark blue/black mostly.

I’ve been searching for the past few days but to no avail… Hoping someone can help on this.

What was that game that was like ultimate assassin two with sprinting/invisability/getting through doors without keys instead of killing enamies? And dogs/people shooting at you. You had to bomb a thing and then get out.

I’m looking for a strategy/war browser game in which there were three playable factions — green knightly types, red barbarians, and blue ice wizards. There was also a purplish enemy undead faction. The map was full of towns, forts, etc. connected by roads, and these gave income, mana regen, and increased pop cap. Money was then spent to produce units at these buildings, generally soldiers, archers, cavalry, and a caster unit. There was an upgrade system in which you could use points from completing scenarios to earn passive bonuses. I don’t think this is a super-old game, I played it around last fall. Anyone remember?

Its a side scrolling game where you start out against a boss, there are a few difficulties and each time you beat it you get skill points and upgrades for the next time. It’s a couple years old I think. If anyone knows the name i would appreciate it. I cant find it :/

I’m not sure but looking through the Side scrolling games might help you out.

I played this awhile back on kongregate…

Its a game where the character upgrades everything by using that action a bunch of times (ie. if they jump a lot they can jump higher) and theirs a time limit, when time runs out you fall asleep, and if you don’t beat the boss your skill levels reset
