Top-down 3D puzzle/platformer on the PC

Post by AleaE » Sat Nov 09, 2019 12:50 am

Forgive me in advance for the lack of detail, I was only 5-6 when I played this game so my memory of it is VERY limited.

I remember being obsessed with a game my mom's boyfriend at the time played. It was on the PC, and I'm pretty sure it was using Windows. I played it between 2003-2005 or so, but I'm not sure how old the game was when I was playing it.

It had 3D graphics, and you viewed your character from a top-down, angled view. I don't think the character you played as was customizable in any way. The only thing I really remember is that there were many different levels, and each one was a unique area. I remember at least one with a lot of old, stone ruins. I think maybe a jungle temple type place? There were also unrealistic elements to the levels that gave it kind of a sci-fi/fantasy look.

I'm not totally sure what genre it would have been, or what the actual objective of the game was, but I don't think it had any sort of combat in it. If there were enemies, you were supposed to sneak around them, but I can't remember if there were or not. I just remember navigating through the levels, in a grid-like movement format, so I think maybe the objective was just to get to the "finish" point? So I'm guessing it was either a puzzle or stealth / platform game.

I remember the start menu being either black or very dark in colour, you could have multiple different save files (and name them whatever you wanted) and I remember the levels having a black void surrounding them, as if you were playing on a little island floating in space.

Unfortunately I think those are all the details I can recall, but if anyone has any ideas or can point me in a direction I would be SO greatful. This has been bugging me for way too long, and my mom doesn't remember it at all, so I'm on my own.
