A 90's computer game, might have been shareware as we picked up piles of that stuff all the time. It was an third person shooter, seemed to have an emphasis on humor and blowing stuff up. I think it was some sort of post-apocalyptic world, or a desert, something like that. There may have been rescuing of women/people.

Also, a Mac/Apple learning game, this one a point'n'click musical adventure where you have to solve different puzzles in different rooms in a castle or... something.

NES beat-em-up game

I can sort of remember the first level (been years) there were enemies on motorbikes and a bald guy for a boss.

I used to play it all the time until the NES got stolen (bad neighborhood in Winnipeg at the time)

Replaying Double Dragon on VC made me curious as to what it is but lists of "nes beat em ups" always leave me empty (we only had a NES so it had to be on that system)

It was an NES game, it was probably some hacked game, but basically it was a 2d brawler with superman and batman as lead characters which you could pick one or the other, and it had co-op. I do believe the environments were miniature and there was a level in a cave, but my memory could be deceiving me.

It was the last new arcade game I saw before our local arcade shut down in the late 90's, early 2000's.

You were a T-rex and basically just eating everything in your path in a Paleo world. You may have had a choice between dinosaurs, but it was very reminiscent of the old-school arcade beat em ups, only you were a T-rex trying to survive.

Btw, not sure if anyone ever played Number Munchers but I rediscovered the game earlier this month. Brings back so many memories.

I remember a NES platformer where you play all child versions of Konami characters if I'm not mistaken. It was a great game with an awesome soundtrack. You even got to play a different version of the first NES Contra leve, I remember playing as a baby and their was another level which was filled with cakes and goodies. Anyone has any idea what I'm talking about? I've been searching this game for years.

i played these 2 imported games on my PS1 demo discs.

1. you were this sword that had to cut its way thru all sorts of mazes and such, you could control the speed of how fast u went and if u touched any walls u died.

2. you played as these monsters on these discs that u had and your objective was to hit your opponent and gather power by doing that. once u gathered enough power you could use your special move and deal damage to them. Lots of monsters and tons of fun as i recall it.

It was on the original Gameboy. The overworld was kinda like chess, I think, in that it was split into a grid and you had a piece per block. There was the giant, the knight, the wizard... Anyway, you'd move them around, and when you hit an enemy, it would go into a sort of Zelda-like overhead view and you'd fight.

To be perfectly honest, I seem to remember that it kinda sucked. I just wish I could remember what it was called.

Alright, this one's been bugging me for a very long time now.

A PC (DOS) strategy game set in space, but where there's an combat or action mode where you actually control a... robot, or something, I think in the battles. It's shown in a top-down view, but I unfortunately can't remember anything more than that. I want to say this was in the early to mid 90s, but I may be off on that.

I used to have this game for C64 where you were a little ship or something. You had to trap the monster of each stage in as small a portion of the screen as possible by cutting off sections of the stage.

Also, another C64 title. This one is really hazy. All I remember is shooting arrows at bees and other creatures. It had a fantasy setting.

Years ago, maybe around 1999, I played a crapload out of this PC Demo, can't remember at all how I came across it. IIRC it involved hovertanks that might have been able to transform into walkers, and the whole demo was in a green valley/forest-like area. I think it started with an B or H, and it wasn't Battlezone.
