Hey Guys,

I was looking for an old game not sure which platform, but it was a 2D RPG adventurer, in middle eastern age I gather all the information I remembered 😅

Character:
A boy wearing white gloves was very similar to Rayman in design like height and the cartoonish style.

Gameplay:
Fight enemies, jumping on platforms also similar to Rayman style and collect item like green leaves and more, there was a crafting system you can craft potions and magic or sorcery like lightning and much more

I also remembered when you cast lightning, the character points his index finger up to the sky.


Level design:
2d, green grass, rocks around and castles, blue sky

Hopefully, I shared enough information 😁

Thanx

That's certainly going to complicate things. A lot. You also did not specify even the approximate years you played this in ("old" is entirely subjective you know), but since you mention a crafting system I think it might not be very old after all.

Here's a MobyGames list of side-view RPG games for all platforms:

Thankfully only 520+ games to look through. Note that the list is not exhaustive.

But Let me tell you something that might help
The only consoles I owned during the time I might played this game was

Well, that gives us something to narrow down the search. Here are lists of side-view RPGs for the platforms you mentioned (BTW, you can use those filters yourself too, give it a try):
https://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/ ... ist-games/ (3DO does not have side view RPGs listed)
https://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/ ... ist-games/
https://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/ ... ist-games/

If your game is not there, let's imagine MobyGames classified it not as an RPG but as an action game. I'm sure you'll get more results from Action + Side view for all platforms:
https://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/ ... ist-games/
https://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/ ... ist-games/
https://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/ ... ist-games/

There's also of course the (very undesirable) possibility that, if your game is documented but still not on the above lists, the contributor who added it (MobyGames is made from user-contributed content) forgot/neglected to add the side view part, or had some different idea of what the game view was like (e.g. "third person").

It will also probably help if you can point out, from the other games on these lists, the ones that look more like the one you're after, i.e. same art style, or same kind of perspective, anything that bears resemblance at all.
