Does anybody remember a game (probably from the 90s) that used Mancini's Baby Elephant Walk?
I don't know if it actually exists, but my wife heard the music on a Range Rover commercial this evening and said she thinks she remembers the music from a video game growing up.
Anybody?

Name entry screen from "Family Boxing" which debuted in 1985.

Released in America as "Ring King", while PAL versions were called "King of Boxer".

Awesome.
Thanks, Avicalendriya!

EDIT:
do you mean the screen at the very beginning, where it looks like a notebook?
Unless the Japanese version is different (I tried Ring King), that's not the right music...

Nope, not that screen. Baby Elephant Walk plays after a Game Over, at the screen where you are prompted to input your initials.

A few years ago I had this bootleg GBA cartridge with a bunch of games.

One of them was a Yu-gi-oh card game, which is what I'm looking for, but I can't seem to find the actual name of the game anywhere. I can't look at it on the cartridge either, because I cannot remember where it went.

Anyway, this game was originally for the GBA(clarifying this since these bootleg cartridges usually have NES games). You could select 6(or 8? somewhere around that number) people to battle in this fighting mode. When you select your opponent, they say some stuff, and then you face off in rock paper scissors to see who goes first in the match. Then the card game begins.

That's all I can really recall, except that it also had link support to battle actual other people, but I don't think that's really helpful.

That describes most of the Yu-Gi-Oh games on the GBA unfortunately. Eternal Duelists soul is one of them.

Thanks guys for your help. I had a look at the list and Eternal Duelists Soul, and the EDS game fits what I remember exactly.

Now, if only I actually knew how to play yu-gi-oh... :P But seriously, I know the rules and am practicing with the actual card game. I thought that playing with an AI/CPU would help with that, and that's when I remembered this game's existence.

I'm trying to find this game, you fight bosses in this tower, and the first level music from Gremlins 2 for the NES plays while you fight. And if I remember right, the graphics has the style of Cave Story. If you fellas can tell me out with this I'd really appreciate it. :D

Thanks MJ that's the one, I did a quick google search earlier and found it after reading your post. :thumbsup: 

EDIT: I'm looking for another game, it plays like Streets of Rage but with characters from King Of Fighters or Fatal Fury.

Maybe one of the Final Fight games?

The only SNK side-scroller beat-em-up I know of is Sengoku.

Thanks fellas, it's called Beats of something, you could've played it on the Dreamcast too and I think the PS2.

Beats of Rage. It's an engine that has been ported to many platforms, and has various games made with it.

If there wasn't any RPG-thing, it's probably "Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel" (it have a completely different name in japanese and there are at least two versions in Japanese, the western one being the more recent version), as what you say seem to be the main map of the game, where you can select which duelist you'll fight.

Okay here's a few that I have no interset in playing but has bothered me for a long time.

#1
PC game
Played the game as a child sometime between 93 and 2000
thought the game was called Pencilvania
I think the game had a character called Rotten Wrench
it had an overworld view where you could select a place/activity to visit
may or may not have referenced Shel Silversteins Peanut Butter Sandwitch poem.

#2
PC game
had an intro set in a cgi kitchen?
segued off into a  breakout clone featuring zany cartoon bugs?
most likely was a demo packaged with something else, maybe a sierra game, or was a pack-in with windows 95/98/or ME
