Because it is hosted weirdly, I cannot access it through work computer, and I forget about it once I get home. Always keep on meaning to.

Well I didn't get very many of them but I'm happy to be the local winner for this round

@Mr_Horizon Disappointed there was no Paradroid

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

@Dogorilla: Ah, my bad. With (dog)"Gorilla" in your username I immediately put you as a guy... and after a bit of wikipedia I feel pretty stupid, of course there's female Gorillas too.

@GrailUK: Yes, Paradroid was on the initial list, it pretty much invent the "hacking minigame" right? But I had used it just a few months prior in the Commodore quiz, so I decided against it. Would you have recognised the remake, Paradroid 90?

HIGH SCORES 2018

The year is over, and I'd like to announce some overall winners (and winning forums) from all the contestants and points of 2018.

As this quiz is a competition among several online forums (18 in total!), I'd like to start with the community ranking and explain how you score points for your forum.

Untitled SCORE HIGH

If you make it to the top 10 in any of my quizzes, you gather points for your forum:

Getting first place (by having the highest or generally full score) makes 5 points - a gold medal!
There can be more than one if several users have perfect results.
For place two you get 4 points. Silver!
For place three you get 3 points. Bronze!
Those who make it to rank four, five or six... they get 2 points. (iron medal)
And who at least makes it to seven, eight, nine or ten... that's a wood medal and worth 1 point.

Untitled ENDURANCE

Frequent participation also gets you points for your forum, that's how you can contribute even without lots of nerd knowledge.

If you join the quiz five times without a break, you get 1 point. I call it a half marathon.
Those that make it for ten quizzes without missing any (e.g. from mid 2017 to mid 2018) get 2 points - a full marathon.
As an addition, if you binge through the entire last year without leaving any riddle aside... that's even 3 points.
And for the most faithful, the MEGATON: 4 points for those that participated on 30 quizzes in a row.

If you say that's crazy - five users out of the almost 200 last year scored that prize.

Alright, this is how the participating forums have made it through the year:

A round of applause, 12th place for the NintendoLife Forum!

That's a bit below average, but still okay - you also got some stiff competition. Hey, you are even tied with the ResetEra. Get two more points in 2019 and you'll climb two spots...

The RetroGamer community is being excluded (too few participants), and the same goes for the VierPfeile forum (that score is the work of a single user, administrator Cebix). The RetroCanteen comes in as a new Challenger.

  • -

This abstract community score aside, who actually made the points?

The following users made it into the top 10s:

wood medal - 1 point - ReaderRagfish (SoundFX Quiz)
wood medal - 1 point - BrainOfGrimlock (Dog Quiz)

The second category is endurance... this is how your forum did:

3 points - Dogorilla
1 points - JoakimZ

And before I forget, here the winner of the last survey:

Alright, you like pixel-riddles and a bit on the easier side. Got it.

Wow, I'm impressed by all the effort you put into those stats! I'm looking forward to this year's quizzes

'Trans rights!' -Donkey Kong

I waited too long for clues on the Dec quiz. Oh well, I guess I’ll have a fresh start in Feb . It’s a bit mind boggling to be at number seven locally just for completing one quiz.

A bizarre musical mashup filled with Yes, Queen, and some other things.

Please notify me if you want to add me on Switch before sending a request. It makes my life easier.

@Bunkerneath It's the same for me. I can't pick this up from work either.

I did take a look at the last one, and the only one I definitely knew was Beneath a Steel Sky. Amiga-era point-and-clicks? That's right in my hitting zone.

Season 6 - March Quiz - Retro Pixel #3

No big intro, the image quiz is back! After a two month break we start again with lots of new riddles and I hope there'll be lots of participation from this forum.

We begin with a classic, those zoomed up pixels... no matter if we call it "Minimal" or "Retro Pixel", you know what to this will look like. The game mix crosses many genres and platforms, and there's everything from "decades old" to "not even released yet".

Leave a comment about how you like the new quiz?

Deadline is Sunday the 31st of March, please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz.... good luck.

@Mr_Horizon FYI, imgur images don't embed properly here anymore. They show up fine for the poster due to browser cache or something, but to everyone else it looks like a broken image. Most of us use postimg or lensdump instead of imgur for image hosting.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

I can see this image but I have had that problem with other images that people have posted.

Do I answer the name of the game or the name of the character?

does that work?

@JoakimZ You were supposed to name the game, but you'll get points for the character too.

March Quiz - Clues #2

Getting the difficulty right is always really tricky... I really thought this round is very balanced, but now the average is still very clearly below 10 points. I'll do better next time!

Anyway, there's 40 people in the quiz now (two from here), and you have exactly one week left to join. Let's go - here's some fresh clues:

1) The games 4, 15, 16, 18 and 20 were released in this decade.
2) Title 17 is the only first person shooter in this round.
3) Number 20 is a Metroidvania released on Steam and one console.
4) Title 8 is a franchise with one remarkably bad 3D game.
5) Game 13 is a point and click adventure that was never released on console.

Deadline is Sunday the 31st of March, please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

March Quiz - round ending soon

Alright folks, the first round of 2019 is coming to an end this sunday. At the moment there are 60 participants (three from here), which is a really good start. However the average score is still below ten points.

As these are the last clues, may I ask everyone to man the keyboards?

1) Number 14 is not Scooby Doo!
2) Number 19 is not Dragon Ball!
3) Capcoms Ghouls'n'Ghosts was inspiration for number 18.
4) In game 20 you control a robot.
5) Picture 25 shows a thief.

Deadline is Sunday the 31st of March, please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/
