A Couple Of Nostalgic Games I Want To Relive :D

Post by AirHendrix »

And no it's not that Chicken Invaders game either lol.

Sup guys, I just wanted to know the name of a game I remember playing when I was a kid.

1. It had something to do with chickens, and you go on each level in a maze like thing doing I have no idea what but I think eggs are also involved lol. And no it's not that Chicken Invaders game either lol.

2. Another game I remember was this space dos game where it was a simple math teacher.

Like every question you got right, you saw the astronaut go to the moon or something, or build his ship ---> Once again, fading memories lol.


AND YET ANOTHER GAME I WANNA FIND OUT IS:
3. This galaga type game except you use jets, and the planes come at you fairly fast. And when you lose all your lives, it says "GAME OVER MAN, GAME OVERR!"

4. Final game I was wondering about was this side scrolling helicopter game where you rescue these asci-character like people and shoot down other helis as well. It had a black sky I think. There was also a jet like side scroller that was like it.


Anyway, thanks for reading my post. I'm really sorry if I wasn't clear, its just that my memory's a little shaky on the subject lol.

3 is called something as 'no fly zone', it's a windows game, W3.11 I thought.
Or W95?
I always laughed when that voice screamed "GAME OVER MAN, GAME OVER!"
It was a pretty hard game.

Can't remember the precise name, will popup sooner or later.

[Edit]
F-18 No Fly Zone is the name.

4 might be Choplifter. I remember playing it on the Apple II, but I'm pretty sure there's a DOS version as well.

I think that Armor Alley is the PC version -(kinda)- of Choplifter.

[Edit]
Hmmm, nope Wiki says it's the PC version of Apples Rescue Raiders.

AWESOME! Thanks so much guys!

Yeah, Armour Alley and Airlift Resce is right.

Though the second one isn't math blaster, it was more .... how can I say.... not ASCII looking, but um, pixely looking. I remember a astronaut that didn't look as good as Math Blaster's dude, so trust me its not Math Blaster.


The first one has to do with Chickens and I wanna know what that one is lol. Any help?

*Its not Chicken Invaders btw.

The "Chicken" one, might it have been a game where your character turned into a chicken when running from battle (I believe the chicken ran faster than the character normally did)? Because that's ringing a bell for me.

I also think there were eggs involved, somehow... hmm.

#4 could be Chopper Commando, just use Google to find it. I think that the similar "jet" game is probably JumpJet.

Not that it matters, but the "chicken" game I was thinking of was Caverns of Freitag.
