Specs: Windows 7
I m trying to remember the name of an old pc game i used to play. Basically you started off in a maze and you needed to pick up certain weapons depending on what monster you saw. First level as far as i recall you needed to pick up a spray to kill a plant, later on you had to fight werewolves, vampires and so on. it was 2d i think

Was it a Dos game ?

If yes, is it one of these titles:

If yes, you can probably use the scummvm to run it in Windows 7 if you follow the directions on that web site.

Thanks for the help but I didnt find on the list you gave me.
It was more like an arcade game and you had a few minutes to complete the level otherwise the word "hurry" would pop up and a giant worm would randomly go through that labyrinth and kill you. That (and the above) is everything i remember from the game.

The Scummvm web site only lists old Dos games that the scummvm (SCUMM Virtual Machine) can be used for.
If it was a Dos game it was probably first released before about 2000. When did you play the game ?

It WAS a Dos game then. The few Windows games there were back then were crappy in comparison to the Dos games.

You MUST run them in a Dos box program (Dos virtual machine) of some sort in 2000 and above.

I tried the SCUMMVM in XP out of curiousity and it works fine with some of the Dos games that I still have, but I don't waste my time playing games anymore.

I played many Dos games, way back in my 30's, but your descriptions are not familiar to me, unless some of them are about Monster Bash.

Search the web for: Dos Games or similar.

Some sites have a screen shot from the game.
