Yes there was a NES action game w/ rpg elements.
No "saves" you had to write down / enter code.

Cross between space battle (side scrolling but vertical) and exploring massive space ship (action).
It had venders in the ship I think you could purchase upgrades.


That sound like Guardian Legend.

Edit: Found a YouTube vid of it.

I remember this game where your an elf boy or something and you walk in to a cave and a man gives you a sword, you then have to go around collecting yellow triangles or something, and the enemies drop either hearts or money. Might have been for the NES?

Does any one remember a scene where theres you and someone else think it was a woman? the woman is in a lift/elevator and just as the lift starts to descend you get a message over comms telling you to kill her, you then have a split second to kill her before the lift lowers if you don't kill her I think you have to fight her later on? think it was on the playstation

I'm surprised there aren't more companies re-releasing these old classic titles with updated graphics. I don't mean change the game but just the graphics. Much like what they did with the Super Mario All Stars. The games felt just like they did in their day yet updated graphically.

Found this game the other year, used to play it on a demo disk. How's this for a title cover? Few other games looked up - Tower of Babel (seriously deserves some indie attention) and Resolution 101. All for Atari ST/Amiga:

I borrowed the game from my uncle some time ago, but can't remember the name to save my life.

pc game, early 00's.
You are a macanic and your girlfriend is stolen by aliens. (No, it's not DNF)
You have a wrench at the beginning of the game, but later there's guns, etc.
