Hi, been trying to find these 2 games for yonks but had no luck [doesnt help i dont remember thier names Tbbbbbth!] My brother and I use to play these when we were 5-10 years old [now in our 20's].

1st:
what i remember of this one is the menu screen had 4 options. each a different 'world'. each a seperate game each having 4 lvls. it guess what you would call a side scroller but also a puzzle type game. when you walked around the map your character would absorb the 'sand box' surrounds [kinda like eating the map]. in each of these world you would have to collect a specific amount of 'gems' eg hearts. but you had to be careful about the path you took to get them as when you absorbed the map the solid things like stones would fall into the newly created space. this was adventageous to get your 'gems but could also kill you if you got hit buy one or by releasing a harmful monster.

2nd: this game was a side scroller adventure game that had you running/sliding/jumping up a map to reach the end without dying. which kinda sounds like all of them i know Tbbbbbth! its proberly no use in trying to find this one as the only thing i clearly remember about it is that the jump key was the up arrow. and the character was a short squat shape.

i really loved these games as a kid and was hoping to find them again ... please help!

Alas Rockford isn't abandoned.

But the clone is:
http://www.the-underdogs.info/game.php?name=Terra+Probe

If you're in such stuff you gonna love Heartlight:

Darned, there was an excellent freeware W3.x clone with map editor and stuffies, but can't remember the name right now.

Second one: pfffffffffffffffff, joins Wally here, to vague.

[EDIT]
Give also this one a try:

And of course the eternal supaplex:

THAT'S IT!! i didnt reconize the name but as soon as i saw that sceenshot of rockford i KNEW that was exactly what i was looking for!! thanks so much =)

unfortunatly unless my hazzy memory becomes any clearer or we develope the technology to photocopy pictures we have in our minds im unable to describe the 2nd game any better. though 1 lvl i remember of it had alot of ice on the map that you slide across ... not that that helps much +=S

Yeah that second game could be anything.

Not a lot of ice, but this was a car game with those colors. Rock and Roll Racing.
That was a SNES game.

The second game, is it DOS? Windows? I can think of other nameless games on PC that had ICE. Super mario all stars has lots of mario games with ICE. Again this isn't PC.

Ice really isn't fun on PC unless you can use mouse/controler. The keyboard takes a little too long respond so I doubt you really want to find this game to play on PC.
