February Quiz - clues #1

Everybody, it's not my fault - the other users picked the games this time, don't blame me that it's difficult.
So far people achieve barely 10 points on average, so it's not an easy start into the new year.

To not have anyone despair any further (35 participants so far, no one from here), here are some clues:

1) Not all screenshots are gameplay. Nr.2 is a loading screen, 18 & 22 are intro- or cutscenes, and Nr.23 is a start screen.

2) In game number 9 you have to move balls around. The title first appeared on the TurboGrafx, and later as a download game on Wii and WiiU.

3) Title 20 is a Lucasfilm game from the 80s.

4) Game 19 is the toughest in the entire quiz (just 9% got it right so far). It plays in the D&D universe... and it doesn't start with a "B"!

5) The 21 is a fighting game for the Nintendo Game Boy.

Deadline is Wednesday the 28th of February. Please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

here the quiz again... have fun!

February Quiz - Wunschkonzert #2 - answers & score

The first quiz of the year is done, and 67 people joined... three more than with the last Wunschkonzert, very nice!

Don't forget the special rule: all that correctly guess their own game, get a +1 bonus point if they stay below 20 points total. But whoever does NOT recognise his own game, gets a -1 penalty instead!

Each title has a spare line that explains which user had wished for that game.

March Quiz - Fake Screenshots #3

I really enjoy reading feedback to my all of my quizzes. One thing that's clear is that you all seem to really like the fake screenshots that are pieced together from eight individual games each.

So, let's do another round in that format! There will be four fake screenshots in total, and I will post a new one every four days. Each Image is a completely different genre, so hopefully there will be something for everybody.

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

Here is the first out of four quiz images... the theme is 3D Jump'n'Runs, have fun!

Image 2 of 4 - realtime strategy games

Where the first quiz image had mostly console games, the next one is reversed: Here you have a majority of Windows PC titles from the 90s (between 1989 and 1999).

Good luck! Please participate via www.retrogamequiz.com

@Mr_Horizon So frustrated with myself! I'm seeing a lot of familiar things, but can only name one game so far! (..I think!)

I'll try and rack my brains and dig a few answers out before the deadline!

Those screenshots really are fantastic by the way - bravo!

Image 3 of 4 - P'n'C adventures

oh dear, this round is more difficult than I thought... once again. -_-; On average, the participants (22 in total, one from here) score less than half of the 16 points possible so far - and those were the "easy" pictures!
Until now we had well known classics (and one obscurity for each image), but picture number three is more mixed. In part genre defining classics, but also average titles and obscure games. Also the age range is twice as wide, from 1991 to 2012!

Will you still dare to try your luck??

Image 4 of 4 - Game Boy Shooter

"..."

"...say, how can we make the fake screenshots even harder?"

"Even harder?! Our users already have trouble keeping up - so far we had 24 possible points, and the average score is EIGHT. -_-"

"Nevermind, these are nerds, they can take it. Come on, brainstorming!"

"Oh dear, well then. Mmmh....how about Shmups? That's a niche genre."

"...too easy!"

"Okay? Then... we focus on a single console, that'll decrease the chance of people knowing something!"

"...too easy!!!"

"What?! Well...we take an almost 30 year old handheld with a resolution of 160x120!!"

"TOO EASY!!1!"

"MADNESS!!! Then we use less classics, and instead add some obscure nonsense no one knows about!"

"Perfect!"

  • -

So, here it is... the fourth and last Image of this round. Participation isn't that high yet (26 users), and high scorers with over 20 points are nowhere to be seen - there are even games that haven't been recognised yet!

Feel free to roll your eyes at the Game Boy picture - just remember that it's tough for everybody and try your luck regardless.

One quick hint - only six of the games are pure shooters, two also count in other genres.
But now here we go: HAPPY QUIZZING

Deadline is the 31st of March, participate via: www.retrogamequiz.com

March quiz - fake screenshots #3 - clues

It's just six days to the deadline - so far participation has been a bit low, 35 users in total and one from here. I hope there's going to be a few more until next saturday. It's a difficult quiz, average score is about 10 points out of 32 - and two games have not been found out at all!

a quick disclaimer: I am taking a break next month, users in the maniac and powerplay forums wanted to run their own quizzes. Check those out if you can't get enough.

Now - time for the clues:

image 1:
1) release date years on image number one are 3x 1996, 2x 1997, 2x 1998 and 2000.
2) I meant to take the first instance of a famous playstation series, but accidentally ended up using the 3rd part. It won't matter when evaluating the score.
3) Four titles are multiplatform (PC & Console), two are sony exclusives, one Nintendo exclusive and one only for Amiga.
4) One of the games is actually not 3D, but just 2.5D.

image 2
1) release date years on image number two are 1989, 1992, 1995, 1996, 2x 1997, 1998 and 1999.
2) Due to its genre this image has a focus on PC titles, but only three of the games never appeared on consoles. Four are multiplatform, and one is exclusive to a Sega console.
3) One of the games is sometimes called the "inventor of the RTS genre".
4) There is a title on this image that appeared on the Commodore Amiga, but another one (with a very short name) sadly didn't, even though the developer had a strong Amiga history.

image 3
1) release date years on image number three are 1991, 4x 1995, 1998, 2008 and 2012.
2) Just one game of these did not appear on PC.
3) One of these PnC adventures is a license game to a really crap German movie.
4) There is a game here that hasn't been found out! It has a russia/communism theme and average reviews.

image 4
1) release date years on image number four are 5x 1990, 2x 1991 and 1993.
2) One game shares its name with an arcade title and a playstation 3 game.
3) Next to shooting, in one game you rescue POWs and take them back to base.
4) Here is the other game that hasn't been found out! Fight enemies and clear the path for a ground tank by moving boxes with a hook.

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

Here all four pictures together:

May quiz - dragons - clues #1

Thank you to the 24 people that already joined, and I am looking forward to more users participating! But now let me give you a first set of clues...

1) Seven of the 25 correct answers have the word "dragon" in it.
2) Game number 10 was developed by a french company.
3) The third game is an exclusive title for the playstation 3.
4) title number 8 is from a well known run'n'gun (...or jump'n'shoot?) series, but the dragon we see here was never seen in a console version.
5) Four games use the first person perspective, but only three of them can be counted as first-person-shooters.

So, did that help? Or still more questions than answers.

Deadline is Thursday 31st of May - please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

May quiz - dragons - clues #2

hi everyone, this quiz round ends on Thursday night! So far we have 34 participants, two of which are from this community.
Here is the last set of clues, from now on you're on your own...

1) Game 13 is from a fantasy action series, where a new installment was just released with game-of-the-year ambitions.
2) Number 19 is an exclusive title for the Xbox One.
3) stop asking - for the first and second game (and all others too...) it's enough to name the series/franchise, you don't need the exact part.
4) The 15th game is a license title to a postapokalyptic action movie.
5) toughest one in the entire quiz... the 22 is a fantasy sidescroller for console and arcade.

Deadline is this Thursday, 31st of May - please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

June Quiz - slightly disturbing

For quite a while I have been collecting ominous blood messages on video game walls, with the intention of one day creating an especially dark quiz round. But after being unable to aquire 25 fitting contributions, I came up with a different approach... this round celebrates its contrast: half of it are bloody warnings from horror games,
and the other half is cute animal creatues, large eyed anime characters and other games with a colorful cutesy look.

Don't be distracted by this slightly disturbing mix and have fun finding the games!

Deadline is Saturday the 30th of June - please particiapte via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz... good luck!
