You didn't. It sounds like either Masters of the Maze or Knightmare, depending on where you are.

As for me, most of the stuff I remember the name of, but others seem to have forgotten, like AOL Hometown pages and Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad.

I played some version of Bud Redhead. Not The Time Team. I remember a level editor; I played it so much I even dreamt about it.

Masters of the Maze is almost definitely it. It looked very familiar, but I wasn't entirely sure until I saw those weird talking heads on the walls. Thank you!

I remember this one PC math game that we played in elementary school(around 2000 or so). It had a collection of games, but the one I remember the most was a game where you were navigating a space, and when you answered a math problem, it turned you in a different direction. When I try searching for it now, I can't find it anywhere.

This free(?) collection of little games that I used to play around 2005. All I remember is that it was for Windows, the user interface was yellow, and one of the games was a piano-moving puzzle game with "Our House" by Madness as the title music. If someone finds it, I'll be over the fucking moon. (Also a version of Üz that works on Windows 10.)

wait, what? there's proof this WASN'T just a figment of my imagination this whole time?

I even remember when I analyzed the format of the levels, I wonder if I can dig that file up from somewhere...

Finally found this, it was "Mental Math Games" for PC, still pretty fun playing it today, but don't remember the last level being so cheap :/

Is this it?

That's probably the closest one that's still available, but it ain't quite like the original video. The original used the Wii version of the song, and it also had the "Best Cry Ever" guy during some of the "bah"s in the song.

I could probably re-make it once I install a video editing softw--

In the early 2000s, I remember Nintendo releasing free Majora's Mask and Pokemon G/S promotional web browsers for Windows. I remember that they were obviously reskinned versions of one of the major contemporary browsers at the time (I guess IE or Netscape?), but all of the UI elements were replaced with new ones themed after whichever game the browser was representing. The new UI elements were very elaborate - lots of colors, and lots of images.

They were definitely official Nintendo releases and not fan-projects. I've never been able to find anybody else who remembers these, and I can't find any mention of them online, but I know they were real.

God, I SWEAR there were branded browsers just like these that existed around the same time period. I remember one distinctly based on the Jim Carrey Grinch movie.



I wish I could find them again...

Don't forget that Pokemon movie browser game that would only run within a Windows app. Very basic gameplay, but following the same goal as the movie.

αI'm not sure if this counts, but I have a vague memory of this electronic game/toy—

It was colorful plastic, probably sometime in the 1990s. It had an inner square and an outer square, each with four large round buttons in the corners, numbered 1–4 with dots on the top. The inner buttons were targets, and the outer buttons corresponded to players. Battery-powered, had a speaker. After you started a game, a repetitive music loop would play, as the turn timer, and voice samples would prompt each player to trigger their player button followed by a sequence of target buttons. Depending on the difficulty, the instruction could be a single target, a target and repeat count, or a first target, repeat count, and second target. (“One touch three three times then four!”) You would get points for correctly following the instructions, and lose them for pushing wrong buttons or for failing to complete the sequence before the next measure of the music finished.

I have no idea what it was called, and it'd be neat if someone recognized it…

I remember a game that had you as a sort of thief character? The first level took place at night in some European-styled village/city and IIRC the roof shingles were textured orange. At some point you might have followed someone through the map.

There was a level through a swamp that was a survival battle with your draining health. You were poisoned at this point and I remember you having some egg-shaped item in your possession. I think that was relevant to the poison but I don't remember how. Maybe it was just a HUD icon but I remember it as being an inventory item?

I don't remember if this came before or after the swamp but I think after, there was also a temple level where the outdoor parts had shallow pools and streams and waterfalls through it for decoration. The map was a bit of a maze IIRC.

The last level was in some tower(?) lab thing, with textures of filled shelves on the walls and bodies cut open on tables (more surgical, holes in their skulls and their brains showing or taken out. Not as in a slaughter.) and it was quite a grey level? The final boss from what I recall was the person who had the cure for the poison. After you collected that from him the game ends.

I think we played it on PC but the graphics were somewhere around the PS1, maybe PS2 in fidelity?
