    I don't think he is fucking her, I think he would just like to, which is why he's trying to help her find this game, and getting all sniffy when I suggest she might not have perfect recall.

    This approach never works. She's not interested. My advice is to give up.

    I have to agree with Smuel in this situation.

    No luck.
    The only thing she said was that camera's view was smaller.

    If you come up with a better description of it, maybe email the guy that runs Abandonia?

    Zanza: Sorry, but those two games really have not got any bulldozers in it.

    Frosty: Which genre does this game fall? In which year was this game on her computer? So that I can narrowed down the possibilties.

    The only game that came to my mind when I read the description was Dizzy.

    Speaking of good old games, I just had The World Ends with You and Chrono Trigger in my Amazon shopping cart for a combined total of just over $25! That's just enough to qualify for free shipping!

    With these bargains in my cart, I browsed around for other games and by the time I was ready to checkout, the combined price of the said two games jumped eight bucks.

    I'm too much of a Jew to accept a 30% hike in price so I'm going to wait for these games to come back down again.

    Smuel: That was one of the first that came in my mind, but the problem is that the ones that I know of do not have any bulldozers or creating buildings in it.

    And my wild stab in the dark is... Simant.

    Last night I gave your mother a series of wild stabs in the dark.

    It didn't help either of us to remember Mixi's game though.

    Ytzk: No. This is a too wild stab and not the game neither, because the one that you mentioned is a stragety game where you are controling a world of ants against bugs and other crawlers.

    In 1995, when I got Chrono Trigger for my birthday, it cost $80. Ah, how times have changed.

    Seeing though Arthgon knows so much he should probably just tell us what it is.

    None of those.
    And we don't know the exact year. All i can say it was 9-10 years ago since she played it.
    Genre: Can't say actually. All she added was that there is fog of war like in many other strategy games. You use mouse to play and select your eggmen. And that eggs had cute faces ._.
    She doesn't remember anything about training other units so it is really hard to decide which genre it is.
