Had it, played it, almost beat it. The second to last level was night impossible for me back then :( I never managed to beat the Lord of Darkness (or whatever his name was). Thankfully, thanks to a custom savefile I managed to skip that level and see the ending. The game really fun, but sometimes really hard and brutal.

I totally forgot this game existed until last week, when I remembered it for no particular reason. I don't know how popular that game was, but I guess not that much.

I used to play this a lot when I was younger, it was a PC game where you had to get your clockwork toys to the other side of the screen. I seem to remember that my strategy was always awful and I just spammed the toys...

This game is so good. Way better than Endless Ocean. Actually it was the only reason I was excited for EO, but EB2 is way better. A shame really.



Also, my game I dont think anyone (or many) have played is Zero Critical:

I could probably say I haven't played anything that anyone else on GAF hasn't played at one time or another.

Although Game Empire I & II have a lot of very old and unique games, I'm positive somebody has gone through all the game in there.

Read the entire topic and saw so many awesome memories come back! I especially loved Dink Smallwood which actually got quite good a few hours in. Also Lord of the Realm 2 was awesome. It wasn't a civ clone though as you could fight the battles in a rts like pov. Still play both games from time to time.

Gonna have to dig deep into doujin territory here, since I can't remember the names of any old Acorn games I used to play.







Crazy, yet oddly stylish Megaman'ish game that feels great to play. Only a demo out at the moment, with the full game due later this year.

Pretty certain I only played a demo of this with limited toys available, but it was fun nonetheless.

To this games credit, it was one of the originators of QTE. RE4 and GoW are just posers.

I beat this game twice.

The only one I can think of that hasn't been mentioned yet is Megafortress:



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megafortress

Megafortress is a flight simulation video game developed by Artech Digital Entertainment and released by Three-Sixty Pacific Inc in 1991. The player takes command of the fictional EB-52 Megafortress created by the military and espionage novelist Dale Brown.

The game takes place in the late 1980s and early 1990s and features three distinct sets of missions: Red Flag (USAF) training exercises at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, a fictional series of missions during the First Gulf War and a special mission which reenacts the plot of the novel Flight of the Old Dog.

One of the first in depth flight sims I played.

Prime Target was awesome as a more realistic shooter among the Marathons and Duke3D's

They also made Damage Incorporated:

and the only thing i can remember from it was that you could load ACID AMMO into a shotgun :D

Time Soldiers for the Sega Master System
I loved this game even if it was hard as fuck for no necessary reason. I took this game and the Master system with me on a family vacation where we stayed at my aunt's house. She said there were demons in them and took them both to the garage and destroyed them with a hammer. I never did get to beat this game.


Crystal Caves for DOS
This quickly became the game that I sunk the most amount of time into when it first came out. I really loved this game, for some reason. Lots of fun gimmicks such as dark levels, upside down levels, etc.

I think odd freeware and shareware games I played are the most likely candidates for game sI've uniquely played. Shame I can't remember their names. One I do remember is this Bomberman clone:
