Ah, the good old days.
lol, you can 'force' a goal easily in that game.

Stay in the opponents goal (almost as far in as possible), and shout to get a pass. When the goal is almost at you, do a diaskletas (or whatever it's called) and you'll score as long if you did it right.

To be rather honest, it was crap compared to the first two... I never even completed it (although I did help my brother figure out the last puzzle of the game ).

The last puzzle was the best part. I wonder how many actually didn't need a walkthrough for it. But well, it's really bad compared to Simon II.

Cool

Contra

(NES version)





That game rulezzzzzz!

It was the very first 2-player co-op adventure I ever played!! My bro and I spent so many hours playing this classic!! I love the music, and the final level is a lot like aliens.

Snow field was our fav level. And the weirds levels 2 and 4.

Funny thing that I played again recently and cannot beat it.

Rastan.


And Wizball! I used to play it when I was a kid, but I only finished it a lot of years later.


Ghosts & Goblins. One of the hardest games ever.

I know it was a good game,but it lacked the plot and action of the first game.
Broken Sword 3 also had bad camera and idiotic puzzles(although I loved the plot approach)
Broken Sword 4 is the worst for me.Although the puzzles are good and it makes a very good adventure game,it doesn't feel anything like the others.
The plot had many gaps(etc Nico jumped into the story with no explanation),the ending was awful and the game was filled with bugs making it unplayable.
Broken Sword 2 was also one of the first adventure games I ever played on some demo disc if I'm right.I love it as a game,but no it's worse than the original.

Hey LBAwinowns,what puzzle are you refering to?It's been some time since I played the game so I can't remember.And yeah it was quite a good game with wonderful music and all that.And certainly one of few first person adventure games I can play(I hate MYST).Geez I think I've gotta find it and start playing!!!And it was 4 discs!!!

Hi! Milk?

This thread doesn't seem to be primarily about forgotten games. It seems to be mainly about under appreciated, older and forgotten games. Then again - no game is truely forgotten by all at once.

This is all about under appreciated, older and slightly forgotten-games-by-the-majority games. And there is nothing wrong about this. I'd just like to try and clarify what this thread is about so that no games are left out due to different definitions of what this thread is supposed to contain.

Thank you for your time. Please, do continue.

With kind regards and lots of milk,
The Milkman
