I Need Help Finding A Rare Game
« on: December 27, 2005, 07:58:31 PM »
When I was younger I had a assortment of DOS games and I didn't bother to really remember them as I got older but now I found most of them again.

Had:
-Space Quest 1 VGA
-King's Quest 5
-Home Alone
-Willy Beamish
-Dark Ages
-Trolls(My sister likes it)
-Unkown Game

Found:
-Space Quest 1 VGA
-King's Quest 5
-Home Alone
-Willy Beamish
-Dark Ages(I got lucky finding this one I didn't even know what it was called)
-Trolls(Again my sister likes it)

Now I don't remeber much about the "Unkown Game" but I remember it being sorda similar to Carmen San Diego except when you go to places the place would fill up the whole screen instead of having it in a small phone screen device. I also remember when you went places you could hear the background noise even while you were doing something. The scenes I remember were a pool area were there were alot of kids in the pool and a hospital area where a guy was in a hospital bed and through the window you could see a hamburger diner. Most of the places were like still pictures but they would move sometime depending on what your doing.

I really hope someone could help me find this I really want to get this game back.

Most likely an adventure game and iit might have been released from 1990-1995.

Are you sure it's Sierra?

If it is, here are a few you might try:
Police Quest
Laura Bow 1: The colonel's Bequest
Manhunter 1
Manhunter 2
Ecoquest 2
Gabriel Knight 2
Gabriel Knight 3

(I'm not sure about most of these but they're worth a shot)

I now think it may be puzzle game like Carmen San Diego but I'm not sure.

I drew a picture of the hospital level keep in mind it's not to good.



There's a guy in the hospital bed I kind of remember the room being purple but again I'm not sure through the window you could see a street and people would be walking around and there would be a burger joint that had a big burger on the building somewhere that's what that weird shape on the building is. I now remember the hospital was in a big city and you could hear traffic and honking and some other things from the window.



I also drew a picture of the pool level. The pool was full of kids and some of their dad's but I really couldn't draw people that good and their was a chain link fence which is in front of the trees in the background.

The game's graphics style was sourda similar to Willy Beamish.

Also the games you listed, none of them are the game.

Is there any people around here that know almost every DOS game?

Because they might know what this game is.

Also if any of you think the "Unkown Game" description is alittle similar to a game you know just post a screenshot. Even if you thinks it sounds a tiny bit similar post a screenshot it can't hurt.

I'm pretty sure it's not a quest game. Mabye PQ if you're really stretching it.

CRIME CITY!  :D

Okay, maybe not, but the hospital bit is a reoccuring thing...

Not sure if it had a pool though.

It is an obscure game to be sure.

Bah. ;P

Was it a game where you use a time machine or something, because I think I know what you are talking about. Now, what was it's name...

Had no idea their were more replies. It's not Crime City I already checked it out.

Link

This game stuck out as maybe it being the game but I remeber the game I'm looking for looked better in terms of graphics.

Edit:
It's not a myst or quest game I remeber a 1st person perspective as indicated in the drawn paint pictures.
