Got a few that I cant remeber for the life of me.

Ok so I played an AMIGA from the age of 3 - 10 ish. Was bout 8 years ago since I last played it! So I am having alot of trouble remebering the names. There are a few that I really enjoyed but the information is very sparse I'm afraid, due to rubbish memory! Here I go:

1st one: All I can remeber from this one is coloured blocks and a coloured ball and if you were a red ball you could break the red blocks so you could only remove the block if you were the corrisponding colour, and I think if you were say a red ball and you hit a yellow block you would turn yellow. There were variouse obsticles along the way.


2nd One: This was a game were you had to collect items, very dingey colours, and I remeber the term "ITS IN MY BAG" when you collected it, was a bit scary (to me at that age) aswell.


3rd One: All I remeber from this one is BRIGHT colours and i think this also involved collecting items and talking to people. Possbily royalty involved.


Thats all for now. Sorry about the rubbish descriptions!

No not either I am afraid, thanks anyway.

1) Was more bold primary colours, if i remember rightly it was a silver coloured box with a coloured blob in the middle (thats what the "squares" were like)

3)Colours were bright pink and bright blue. I just remeber houses and roads and grass.

Ok its not any of the above! Thanks anyway.

I have a very vauge memory of them which is annoying so I am finding them very hard to describe.

1)Looked kind of industiral. Black back ground with metal blocks with red, yellow, blue and green blobs in the middle. I guess it would be puzzle/startergy game.

3) Ver very vauge memory of I just know you speak to people and its very bright colours. I swear I have dreamt these games as I cant find them anywhere!

Check here http://hol.abime.net/ 'n' use the search options - category is 'n' select what you think the game could be under.

1 = Puzzle ?

3 = RPG ?

When the list comes up just click on the screenshot to the left of the title name 'n' you'll see a picture that may jog your memory (or even the name), although you may be searching for a while pursuing it is well worth it in the end

1 = Gotcha! ?

I am pretty sure that this is it.
AFAIK, the original game that used this idea was Crillion on C64.
The most recent game with similar gameplay was the awesome Gem Smashers on Gameboy Advance.

1.) It's not "Blob" is it? No metal that I can recall, but colored square leaping with black background...

It doesnt look like gotcha but its that concept!

It looks very similar to Crillion.

Well, check the zone. I upped an Amiga version of Crillion. (little known, but as you can see it does exist )

However, it looks quite unfinished - maybe a preview or beta, but at least it works

The concept of "Crillion" is very close to that of Diamond Fever:

There was an Arkanoid / Breakout clone that came free on the cover of Amiga format.... hmmm....

http://amr.abime.net/coverdisk_scans_4

I cannot instantly see it... perhaps it is one of the missing ones... or CUAmiga or something?
