Game description: You control a “zeplin” and plot points for a convoy to pass to while you move your zeplin around shooting at threats to the convoy.
Power up section included bigger guns, fast sailing time etc.

I dont even know if this would be under strategy or shooter. Could have sworn I saw it on here, but I cannot find it nor can I remember the name. It was a rough graphics game I think, but the game play strategy was excellent and challenging

I want to remember a game I played a few years ago. It was very simple: You began as a creature (I believe it was a bird), flying through the sky doing something to get “points” (they were useless, just to keep the player entertained). Throughout the whole game some amazing music played, which I want to hear again. Every now and then you morphed into a different creature, and into a different landscape. I tried searching things like “bird,” “music,” and “migration” but got nothing. Can anyone help me?

There’s this game I played a year or so ago and it was really fun. You scout warriors (Archers, Mages, Swordsmen, Horseback riders) but they were not called those names. You could train them with stuff like reading and punching? and improve their stats. Then you would join a league and fight another team every (fake) month. There are like four special warriors that you can scout. The graphics are sort of cartoony. Then, once you won the league, you got to face the king. I think it’s on Kongregate, but I have forgotten the name. Please help!

This may be it.
You can use your points to buy upgrades, so I’m not sure if this is right.

I played a game a few years ago made by Epic Shadow (who made Tower of Greed and Pixel Purge) and it’s not on his account anymore. It was a platformer with a girl who have a nightmare (I think) and must fight it in form of a black boss. I think it had a sword and could throw down meteors and other things like this. The game had day and night and at night the girl had the nightmare. She gained exp in everything by practicing it, so the more you jump the higher you will jump and so on. There was a kinda big world to explore and the game was fitting for the Retro and Pixel categories.

Another game I can’t find, was a minimalist platformer with only 1 screen levels and they were always black + another color, in the first levels it’s green and in the lasts it’s red. There was around 30 levels and the game had achievements. It also had enemies, and some items in form of a kinda round white light. Your character and enemies had white eyes and the character was kinda humanoid, I think he was kinda like the VVVVVV character.

Sounds like Level Up!

I played a game somewhere which was a like a coin collecting platformer, but the main mechanic was you rotated your camera 90 degrees around your character and then play 2D as if the other dimensions don’t exist.

I played a game a few months ago that was on the “Hot New Games” list. It consisted of having zombie test subjects that you could shoot, feed, play with, etc. to help you learn about the creatures. I can’t remember much about it, but I think it took place in a time after a zombie apocalypse, and every now and then, you would discover a recording or a journal of someone who was alive at that time.

Nope, the point of the game was to listen to the music. The points aspect was only to keep you from getting bored. It wasn’t really a game.

Hello? Tell me. A lot of people got only like 5000 too.

CMON GUYS! Dont be a jerk ! Tell me!

This is just one of the many games of that sort (or you can check the other games by the dev. Almost all of them are about earning trillions of points). You can even get trillions of points in Flood Runner 2, or Epic Combo, or almost any button game with an API.

Hint: I once showed it in TC. It is like a platform game where you jump and you have a star.

My game was a cannon game, Like Zomtv but you could customize what you ammo did. it used a 5 unit system for customization. It had 3 different kinds of ammo, which were rock, acid, and gas, in the colors of red, blue and yellow in that order. You were a wizard trying to defend yourself with a wall, so you had to shoot over the wall.

There was awesome game on kongregate. Even 4 of them, as i remember, all sharing same idea. It was a platformer/puzzle where the main goal was to collect all colors and paint your world. It also had nice plot. Sometimes you had to solve a problem to get the color. One of games had christmas theme, one had horror theme(at the end you end up waking from a dream, understanding you saw a nightmare), cant remember the 2 others. One of the games was badged. Name is similar to “Color my …”. Can anyone help me to find this games?

Edit: Found them. Name is “Colour my world” and 3 other games in case someone got interested. They are not on kongregate, i think, only on NG.

Looking for the name of this game..
It’s a flash game, I think I played it on Kong but I’m not certain.
It was a turn-based RPG with an AP (Action Point) battle system, and it was set in like a futuristic zombie breakout zone (a bit like Dead Space).
You were sent in on a mission there (to do what I’m uncertain), it wasn’t an escape or survival game.
You had about 4/5 characters in a full party and you had guns, knives and blunt objects for weapons.
It was 2.5d and had a world map a bit like Castlevania or Metroid.
The character and enemy sprites were pretty basic, with large heads, no faces, large bodies and no limbs but hands and feet (like Rayman).
One of the bosses (3rd/5 boss?) was a clown with a stop sign (pole included) for a weapon.
In one of the first rooms there was blood on the wall spelling: ’Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight’
There was an easter egg in one of the rooms in the form of a Companion Cube from Portal.
That’s all I can remember for now – thanks in advance if you can name this game!
