July Quiz - Videogame Jobs

Okay folks, it's time to brush up those CVs, because no matter if it's the British "job centre", the US "Job corps center" or the German "Arbeitsamt" - we are job hunting! Luckily you got into an especially modern institution that adapted their listings according to video games. That totally makes sense, because it's been decades since computer games only featured you as a space fighter pilot or some sword-wielding dragon slayer. Indeed, there's a wide spectrum of jobs on display!
For our quiz this means you not only have to name the 25 games, but also the job you are tasked to do. Do you know them all??

Here's an example (with games that didn't make it into this round):
Untitled
The correct answers (for 6x 0.5 points = full score) in the form would be as follows...

1) We Cheer 2, cheerleader
2) Bridge Constructor, engineer
3) Flight unlimited, pilot

Easy enough?

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

July Quiz - Clues #1

Don't hesitate, an entire riddle filled with wonderful lavishly well-paid (okay, some might be) jobs is waiting! So far the waiting room at the job centre has 23 people, but so far none from this forum.

Here are a few clues:

1) Number 4 is the oldest game of this round (40 years), and number 21 is the youngest (just shy of one year).
2) The games 2 and 6 are Sega classics.
3) Title 14 is the last of a series with five games.
4) Game 24 is all about sports.
5) Half a point for the game, half a point for the job - cheesing cheap half points was never easier than this round.

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

August Quiz - Sound FX #4

Listen to the music! This sound quiz isn't about effects or digitized speech samples, instead we are going after title and background music of mostly well known videogames. Some users had wished for this, and also I am slowly running out of suitable sound effects.

Watch out, there is something special: the music clips are just a few seconds each. If you guess them right, you get the full point. But in two weeks (22nd of August) the clips will be extended to up to 10 seconds. This will make it easier, but will only get you 0,66 points. And for the last three days (29th of August) the music plays twice as long again, but the correct answer at that time only gets you a meager 0,33 point.

So, it pays to be fast - but also the less audiophile users among you will be able to guess many games in the last days of the month.

Have fun!

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

August Quiz - Sound FX #4 - Clues

Can you hear the music? Just like its predecessors, this soundFX quiz is tough with lots of clips that ring frustratingly familiar - just with music instead of the effects & speech samples of the previous rounds. Almost 40 people are in so far, one from this community, and the average score is six.
This is the only set of hints. Instead of more clues, you get longer music clips next Wednesday, but those will also reduce the points you get for a correct answer to 0,66.

Here are the clues:

1) The games 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14 were only released on Nintendo platforms.
2) With the numbers 3, 7, 13 and 18 you hear music from Commodore home computers.
3) Lots of variety in the last row, the platforms are (not in that order) Dreamcast, DOS, ps1, VR and Genesis.
4) In the titles 1, 10, 18, 19, 22 and 24 you are moving in vehicles (land water or air).
5) Number 9 is a Sega Saturn game.

I hope these are useful.

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

August Quiz - Answers & Score

The music quiz is over, with these answers you can finally end your quest for that chiptune melody you just couldn't place.
The scoring went a bit different than planned - I extended the music only once, and all correct answers gave 0.7 points from then on. It was one of the hardest riddles ever, nobody achieved even twenty points.

If you were slightly off with your answer (e.g. Super Mario Bros instead of Super Mario Land) you'd also get the reduced point. But as I don't like half or quarter points, all scores were rounded up/down for the final score board.

In total there were 87 participants, two of which came from this community.

September Quiz - Retro Pixel #4

No backgrounds or unnecessary detail? Instead some old 320x200 screenshot magnified a dozen times until just a handful of pixels vaguely resembling the player character are visible? With its information reduced down to the bare mininum, the Retro Pixel Quiz is a returning classic - and probably a bit easier than last months music round.

There's a bonus question at the end - while there's no additional points to win, you can influence my choices for the next music quiz.

Deadline is Monday the 30th September, please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz, have fun!

September Quiz - Clues #1

Those pixels are good for you - much fewer people with less than five points this round. I hope you still enjoy the quiz, for now we are 36 people and one from here.

Here are some clues:

1) The games 5 and 11 are graphic adventures.
2) 15 and 22 are exclusive releases on Commodore computers.
3) Title 13 is from a German developer.
4) Number 23 and 24 show you games on an Atari platform.

Deadline is Monday 30th September, participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz again, good luck!

September Quiz - Clues #2

So, today in a week? Then the quiz is OVER, you have only seven days left to send in your answers or update your existing entry. Even though the average score is much better this round, several games have proven to be extra tough: The 15 and 23? No one got them right! The 20, 21 and 24? Just one correct answer each!
And no participant has gotten to 20 points or more, so the doors are wide open to score a top position.

So far there are 52 users in total, and two from this community.

Here are some more clues:

1) The developers of #15 come from the UK, and this 90s platformer is their only game.
2) The game you see in field 21 has only two levels and loops forever.
3) The titles 9, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21 were also released as arcade versions.
4) About number 23: There are several games with this name, all on different systems and released over a span of 14 years... they have nothing in common besides the theme reflected in the name.

Deadline is Monday the 30th September, participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here the quiz again, good luck!
