    hi. I played a game when I was like 5 years old but don’t remember it’s name. It’s a game about a little fish that eats another’s fish of the same size to grow and then eats another’s fish of the same size. Can someone give me the name? Thanks

    Such a thing is practically a trope -- I recall doing such things probably as far back as the Amiga, maybe even C64, and it was a fairly popular concept in flash games for a while. "I remember I played a game where you shot a gun" is probably going to be the only harder thing to truly narrow down upon, though in this case you did say fish so we can probably skip Osmos and Katamari Damacy. I will also assume we skip snake/nibbles.bas and as it was never really part of ecco the dolphin then that too.

    It is the first stage in the game of Spore, it is basically the whole game of Feeding Frenzy


    If you are indeed 19 now then 5 would be 14 years ago, though for most people about 5 means 3-9 so 2010 and older. If we do have 2010 then Feeding Frenzy and its sequel (2004 and 2006 respectively) are on the cards, and were somewhat popular at the time (their creators being bought out by popcap during the "casual" boom) so I will go there for now.

    Again it is a pretty common style of game. I am not sure of the name of the "genre" (some use eat or be eaten, some use grow games, some eat and grow games), or indeed if there is one at all, to say nothing of most people these days just calling it arcade or adventure.
    Go Fish (though this is a more recent homebrew game)

    Shark! Shark! is something of a progenitor, though for the intellivision rather than the NES.

    hi. When I was 5 years old I got a Poly Station (yeah you read that right) and I really enjoyed some of the games. But it broke and I don’t remember the names of the games. Can someone please tell me the names?

    First of all I don’t know if this games are original or if they are ripoffs or if they are made by fans but here they are:

    1. The game is about a bunny with superpowers like super Mario bros style. It’s 8 bit. The powers include boxing bunny which is orange, climbing ladders bunny which is green and regular bunny which is yellowish.

    2. The game is about a kind of fish tank in which you are a small fish and you need to eat a fish of the same size to grow. Then you search for a fish of the same size and like that until you are a shark. It’s 8 bit or 16 bit I don’t remember but the animals include fish, sea horses, electric eels and sharks.
    It’s not feeding frenzy for the Xbox or java.

    3. This game is about a kind of man with two balloons tied on its helmet and needs to pop the other men’s balloons. It’s also 8 bit.

    Number 2 reminded me of a certain Atari game, Go Fish:

    Jazz Jackrabbit or one of the sequels (or a ripoff)? The three different abilities mechanic was introduced in the second game:

    Only bunny games I remember are Bucky o hare and jazz jackrabbit. Number 2 sounds really familiar too me as well but I cant place it.

    Might help if you told us what year it was when you were 5 years old. Just to narrow things down a bit.

    Well considering they said in their second post in this thread that they are currently aged 14 you just need to do the math.

    Ahh, Snes is a possibility too ?
    then I'm thinking about Evo: Search for Eden.
    By the way, this game has some good music, especially the remastered ones.

    You indeed start as a fish, but you quickly grow into another terrestrial creature.



    Funny, I don't remember ending in that form (horse type fighting with back legs), I suppose the game is more free than I thought and let the player evolves the way he wants.

    Obviously not the game you’re looking for, because it’s Gameboy. But all this talk of fish eating fish reminds me of Fish Dude for the Gameboy.
