What was that game?

    I figured perhaps this community might know a few things about old games.

    Way back when I was a wee lad and had hair (I'm guessing 1987-ish), my aunt used to bring home a Mac from work every so often. This was one of them old heavy things where the screen was also the computer:


    We got our hands on some games from a friendly guy in the neighbourhood, and spent hours playing stuff like Shuffle Puck Cafe, Dark Castle and Radical Castle.

    There were some others, but for the life of me, I cannot remember their names. So this is a long shot, but hopefully someone will recognize something. Also, feel free to post whatever game you are looking for :)

    1. A submarine simulator. I don't remember much, just that it had an anti-aircraft gun you could man to shoot down planes.
    2. Some top-down RPG/action game where you crashed on a remote planet and fought aliens. I really don't remember much more than that.

    I know this isn't exactly much to work with, but who knows?

    Damn, I think I remember the games but not the names either :D

    EDIT: The submarine Simulator I remember is definitely Silent Service. One RPG I played a lot was Megatraveller but that doesn't fit the description. I can remember a top-down action RPG with a party of 4 where you crashed on a planet but not the name.

    I'm fairly positive it's not Silent Service. However, all my searches came up blank.

    This was the 1990s. Like way before XCOM. Thanks, though :)

    Your image search suggestion might actually have given me what I was after for the submarine game:
