PC [1994-98] Real time tactical similar to Close Combat but set in Vietnam war..

I'm thinking more of strategy games when it comes to shifting war scenarios, like Norm Koger's Art of War, which have several settings.
The other games I've played with Vietnam/Vietcong settings were FPS games, much later.

Looking for a 2D game with man crouching with down arrow!

Umm...is the player character simply crouching, or is he really shrinking to a miniature?

Something like this? : https://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/ ... ising-star

If not, there are many others, e.g. https://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/ ... imulation/
(maybe try other windows versions, or dos in the search too)

In search of an action platforming game for Amstrad

The best I can offer is Mobygames database; here is the CPC games list for (Action Platformer, Side view, Commercial releases) https://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/cpc/action/platform/side-view/tic,16/ti,124/ Still, Mobygames database is not complete, and all info is continually updated by it's me...

In search of an action platforming game for Amstrad

Hmm...I never had an Amstrad computer, but there are some lists of games for those here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Amstrad_CPC_games Some games that may apply: Side Arms, Army Moves, Metal Army An all-black character could imply a Ninja/stealth style game, so maybe it's not a regular arm...

CD-Man 1.5 full-version; does this exist, or is it a myth?

Maybe this youtube channel shows it (Chewit)?

It seems to be titled 'The Muncher Compo' on the title screen.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdYWwqMt0wo

Runs on a ZX emulator though...maybe another version.

Old 3D game from the 90s-00s

It seems the game was indeed 'Time Gate: Knight's Chase', and there is a screenshot of the catapult in the museum here:

Good you found it, it's a freeware game I see, and it was documented on mobygames, but not under the bird groups.

2D Platformer You Start Off As an Egg [UNSOLVED]

Was it something like this: https://www.mobygames.com/game/toki-tori

A 2D game, but still shown as a cube? How did that work, did you have a separate world map showing 3D, or did the 2D screen flip one of the X/Y axis into a Z axis?

Breakout clone late 1990s/early 2000s

A classic Geman breakout clone would be 'Bolo' and its variants. It was initially for Atari ST, using a high resolution mode, with a black/white (grey) screen only. There later was a version for PC (DOS) and Mac, with updated playing screens, but mostly grey also, from what I see on Mobygames screen...

trying to find a game of a game from around 2005 or something like that

You can probably google for white-haired characters and find long lists online; I'd make a guess at the vampire Alucard from Castlevania or maybe Dante from DMC, or Geralt from The Witcher depending on how long the hair is supposed to be?
