Windows 7: Does anyone know what game this is?

Does anyone know what game this is?

I remember playing some space type game long ago but I forgot the name of it. All I can remember is this map grid where you can select the location you want to go to. The top left is the easiest and the bottom right is the hardest but you can travel to any level. In each square in the grid, I remember seeing these blue dots, I think they are blue, and they bounce off the walls. They represent some type of enemy. I can also remember some upgrade place where you can upgrade your ship. I remember one enemy being some where green rock, I think it is green, and it looks like it is alive and the rock looks like it is breathing a lot. That is all I can remember. Does anyone know what game this could be because I really want to play it but I forgot the name of the game. Anyone know the name?

Hmm... not ringing any bells, but it sounds interesting I know your memory is already stretched on this one, but can you remember anything about the genre? Was it closest to being an action game (mostly shooting at other ships/aliens?), strategy game (more zoomed-out, focused on managing resources, possibly turn-based?), RPG (mostly upgrading your ship, meeting other players, maybe with a deeper story?), or Puzzle (could be any type of puzzle game really...)?

Maybe that will get us closer to the answer!

Cheers,

well, it is an action type game. The game is a bit old though but the graphics are still fine. I am not sure how you win since the game is really hard but I think you need to clear every place on the grid. You click on an area on the grid and you can see your ship travelling down the grid, then you enter the section and must clear it of enemies but you are allowed to leave without clearing them all out but you should in order to beat the game. I remember seeing some upgrade space station that is where you can upgarde your ship. That is all I can remember.

Nope, not pacman. It is a space game.

Nope, not MassEffect. It is not a 3D shooter type but more like one of those looking down type views like Asteriods but this game is much better and it has a scrolling screen.

Have you looked through abandonware sites for it? I would try there. Most likely there will be a screenshot or something that will trigger your memory. I have found old games from the mid 1980's that I used to play through abandonware sites.

I can check at an abondonware site. I'll let you know if I find it or if I can't find it.

Good luck, Danielzxzx! Let us know if anything jogs your memory or if you stumble across the game itself
