I thought I aced the April round! But the "other suggestions" show me that I didn't correct #19. Not sure which other game I missed?

May is the easiest round so far, for me at least. Missing 15 and 24 still. I'm fairly sure I played both, but googling the first guesses led nowhere.

You didn't have "Mad Max" and "Nitro" in April. It's too late now to check for details (overwritten for May round).

But yes, you are doing pretty damn well for the DOS classics.

May Quiz - Clues #1

Well, is the old DOS tower still booting properly? Or do you satisfy your nostalgia via emulators instead. ^_^ This months riddle is well received so far - forty people are in, and one from this forum.

Here are some clues - good luck!

1) Four games were published by EA.
2) In the 11, 13, 15 and 16 you are driving a car.
3) There is a first person shooter hidden in the second row.
4) I made a mistake with game #5, that isn't a DOS game. -_-

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

So, I forgot to submit Mad Max, too! That one I figured out right after the first submission.
I had a hunch that it was a problem with submitting them piece by piece (and me dorking out on that), so I resubmitted the May ones all at once yesterday evening.

May Quiz - Clues #2

Did you know? The data transfer rate of an original 90s single speed CD-ROM drive was 150 kb/sec. The disc drive of a modern Playstation 4 however reads 27000 kb/sek. Look at all that progress!

But let's hurry back to this months quiz... as sunday next week it'll be over. So far there are 70 people playing, and two from here.

Here are the last hints - good luck to all of you.

1) Two entries were developed by Bullfrog.
2) The oldest game is from 1987, the newest one from 2000.
3) Three titles were published by Microprose.
4) Image 18 shows the intro of the game.
