ok, keep forgetting to put this here.

So i played this game as a kid, loved it blah blah NOSTALGIA etc

(actually I don't really remember playing it or whether it was any good or whatevs)

It was either on Atari ST or Amiga, I don't really remember, my dad had both at around that time.

The game was a platformer, where you played as a bipedal droid thing and ran around and shot other droids. (I use the term "droids" because I am pretty sure that is how they were referred to in the game) That is pretty much all I remember.

did this game actually exist, or, am I making shizz up  Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?

This was a top-down game, but could it be Paradroid 90, the Amiga and Atari ST version of Paradroid for the C64? The C64 version was, in my opinion, the best game for the C64 and one of the greatest games ever made.

Hmm, don't think that was it - fairly certain it was side-scrolling. That game looks pretty cool though! And thanks anyway :p

Darn. I knew it failed the platform/side-scrolling criteria, but the rest seemed so close that I thought I'd better mention it.

Paradroid 90 was a gorgeous game, as with so many Amiga games, and vastly superior graphics-wise to the C64 Paradoid. However, I always felt it was inferior gameplay-wise. 742s will always use disruptors in my heart.

Turns out it was this one! My google-fu is weak. Honestly, I swear I tried searching for that and nothing showed up Tired

At least, I think that's the one, from the few scant screenshots I could find. Could also have been the sequel, Droid 2, which apparently exists.

A simple strategy PC game where you had a japanese gangster crew, and you have to kill the other 3 japanese gangs. You play on a map with 4 kinds of buffs, each one is represented by an ace from card games. And each gangster has one trait, like deploys faster do more damage,etc.
That's all i can remember :~~

Apple II, fixed-screen space shooter (like Galaga, Falcon, Space Invaders, etc.).  I think you were only attacked by a couple things at a time, not big formations like Galaga.

The thing that stands out in my memory is that one of the enemies was made with brightly colored spheres/discs, somewhat reminiscent of Spathi ships (but not looking exactly like that), and when you shot it, it exploded into the individual colored discs.

This sounds interesting... any more info? DOS or Windows? Was it top-down, turn-based strategy? Was it a Japanese-made game?

This is a game idea I had last year that I haven't capitalized on yet. What you wrote is basically the overview paragraph on my notepad.

There was this game I used to play years ago and I am desperate to find it but remember very little about it.
It was an online (in-browser) game with an over-head view. The colours were greeny browns and there were little creatures (robots? droids?) that sort of moved all over the place and in the top right corner enemies would appear and possibly shoot out (?). I also seem to remember needing to feed (?) the droids/robot things. There was a sort of barrier line thing running down the middle (lava maybe?). I know this doesn't sound like it makes sense but I am desperate to find this game.

Are you sure it was on an Apple II. This sounds a lot, to me, like Kiloblaster for DOS.
