Specs: Old 90's Macintosh
I've seen a lot of people on here asking about old 90's computer games and I have a similar problem in that I'm trying to remember the name of a computer game which I believe I used to play on some kind of macintosh computer in the early 90's. I am nineteen (born in 1991) so I'm assuming I played this game some time between 1994 and 1998. During that time, I had this game I can't remember and a StickyBear game, I can remember the StickyBear game OK but I can't for the life of me remember this other game. I remember it had something to do with these little creatures or monsters which has some sort of silly name and I think there was a part set in a factory, either where you made these things or where you saw them being made. I remember the game being a collection of mini-games as opposed to like one long story, and I remember one game being in a store talking to a clerk who I think was one of the creatures. The things just kinda looked like little shapes in different colors, some with polka dots and some with stripes. I'm pretty sure there was a game where you had to match them. The graphics were pretty primitive if I remember right, but the things looked cool and the game was fun. Does anybody have any clue what I'm talking about? I've been searching and trying to find the game, but to no avail. If anybody knows anything that could help me let me know. Thanks, and if you have any questions I'll remember everything I can.

Hey thanks for the suggestion but I checked out the game and this isn't what I'm looking for...the game I'm thinking of was on a floppy disk rather than a CD Rom and the graphics were much simpler

It's called Commander Keen! I was looking for it too. I hope this helps. I found a site where you can kind of play it.
