Hi everybody, I really need help finding two games their not adventure actually I don’t know what genre they are, here is the first.
You play as a vehicle on Mars you drive around shooting collecting power ups and upgrading your vehicle it was an old windows game possibly dos.

The second game is top down perspective of a Eskimo who must try to cross the ice water by stepping on unstable ice blocks to get to the other side.

Well, if it can be very old, the second game sounds like Frostbite, an Atari game from 1983. You can find a bit more and a screenshot here (second-to-last game):

I also found a Nintendo game where two people in Eskimo clothes had to get up a mountain, but this sounded more like what you described.

And if you’re sure the setting of the first game is Mars, you can try and go through this list on Mobygames http://www.mobygames.com/game-group/setting-mars

That’s the one except it was a newer game with better graphics, does anyone know where I can find more information?

I googled ‘Frostbite remake’ and this was the first link.

HTH

The Frostbite Wiki page, to which I linked in my original post but the link doesn’t seem to work (for me) for some reason (but there definitely is a Wiki page, just google it!), also refers to an XBox 360 and PC remake from around 2010
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frostbite_(video_game)
(for some reason it doesn’t seem to accept the parenthesis into the url)
