Hi guys, i’m trying to recall every game i’ve ever played (within reason, not stuff that i messed about with for an hour) but there are still two titles that are eluding me.
The first is a Myst-like Roman-themed adventure game, quite possible a learning title that i played in school in the mid-to-late 90s. As far as i can remember it was totally first-person though you never saw the players’ hands etc. You mainly ran around a Roman town doing errands for people and learning about the culture. It wasn’t great but the fact that i can remember it but not the name is killing me.
The same goes for the second game - a 2D side-scrolling pirate title, again probably played in the mid-to-late 90s. As far as i can remember you could see most of the ship and you basically ran and around jumping on the rigging and slashing at enemies. It may also have included first-person Myst-like moments between action stages. Sorry i can’t be more specific, these memories are about 20 years old.
Note - i’ve looked through mobygames.com listings but haven’t had any luck, i’m just hoping one of these descriptions rings a bell with someone. Thanks for any help.
