I need to help someone remember the title of a game, based on a description she gave me, in order to find something else out in exchange.

It's apparently an old game, runs on Windows XP, with old OpenGL-style graphics, about an alien trying to save his girlfriend. It starts with a comic strip of her being kidnapped. The alien is human-like and "either green or blue", in a transparent ball/bubble that bounces around, and he tries to colelct coins and avoids pirates. Googling those terms doesn't yield the right results.

I thought someone on this forum might perhaps recognise this game, or at least know of some forum where I could get better information?

Some parts of your description remind me of Psychonauts, but it's definitely not that game.
This is 3D-platformer game?

Perhaps try http://gaming.stackexchange.com/; somewhat larger and more focussed audience.

Can you tell us, or ask them, if they remember what genre the game in question is? (RPG, Shooter, etc.)

Sounds like a platformer from the description but I'd like to keep my assumptions away.

She said it's a 3D platformer indeed.
I also posted the question on StackExchange as suggested. Perhaps this game wasn't very popular so I'm trying different forums.

EDIT: The alien apparently looks like "beast boy" from "teen titans".
EDIT: They don't allow the question on StackExchange because I lack screenshots/audio etc.

You don't need screenshots at the link I posted above. You might want to try that one.
