DOS/Windows Top-down Fantasy Adventure with Fool/Jester

This query was also posted by the same user 'geurillapaint' back in 2014: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=20337
and also repeated in 2019: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=25718&p=136755#p136755

No solution though, but more of the description perhaps.

Visual novel

Mobygames currently list 2080 visual novels; you might want to narrow this down a bit...e.g. what platform you played it on & when you played it.

Acorn puzzley computer game which ended with a sailboat navigating through arrows [Dinosaur Discovery]

Good; here is a Mobygames link: https://www.mobygames.com/game/dinosaur-discovery The platforms does not seem to include the Acorn? Maybe it was a Beeb, or the BBC Micro perhaps is an Acorn made computer?? It seems so: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC_Micro (I'm not too familiar with these brands, ...

💥Kind of like a PC version of the board game " Life"

Cool, I had actually forgot about the CD version - I've only played the non-talkie release, and it was long ago.

Game about sneaking into castle

The character description reminds me of Rayman, he has disconnected limbs, but I don't know if he fits otherwise?

💥Kind of like a PC version of the board game " Life"

The other game type I can think of is like 'Jones in the fast lane' - it might be too early though, but you control your characters life. Not a board game though. edit: yes it is a board game...my memory of it had faded. Perhaps check out the 'human life' simulation genre: https://www.mobygames.com/...

UGH on Macbook: How do I throw the stone?

It seems there are some emulated bundles of the game from some sites (no links), they are not native to Mac.

Searching for old science fiction third person shooter

Oni perhaps? She is pretty agile, doing many acrobatic moves in battle. 3rd person yes, and some of the enemies are androids I think.
Not sure about the prison bit though. Laser barriers I think might have been in place in some locales.

Rare space game with planets and wormholes 1994-1998

Wing Commander Academy? It has no story, it's only a combat trainer really. Not sure if there was any planets though.

PC game made around 1990-2009, top down, 2D, RTS, green themed set in space where you fight controlling spaceships

The thing that comes to my mind is 'Homeworld', but it's later. There is a static home base with smaller fleets around it that you move. More 3D though. Maybe something similar? https://www.mobygames.com/game-group/homeworld-series For 2D space battles - maybe one in the Starcontrol series? https://...
