Scrummer

@Mr_Horizon Had a lot of fun with this one! Probably because I knew most of these ones as opposed to previous months

I think I got most of the cute games but none of the horror ones, which gives you an idea of what kind of games I play haha

Currently Playing: Super Mario Maker 2 (Switch), Pokémon Conquest (DS), Severed (Wii U), The Sims 4 (PC)

Mr_Horizon

@Scrummer: Glad to hear that! At first glance it looks like Dogorilla and Ignatius are at about the same score as you, maybe the clues (later this month) will help you to get ahead.

@Dogorilla: That's good, so the mods don't have to call your parents about your gore intake. There are many absolute classics among the horror games, I'm sure you've heard of most of them.

June Quiz - Clues #1

So, who of you is too distracted by E3 or world cup to join the gaming quiz? So far we are 25 people in total, three of which are from this community.

I think it's time for some clues, maybe that will inspire more people!

1) The numbers 6, 12, 14 and 20 are games by Nintendo.

2) Game 2 is a 2D platformer that was released this year.

3) Title 9 is a game over screen from a well known survival horror series.

4) The entire quiz is very "new", most entries (14!) are from the current decade, eight are from the 2000s, just two from the 90s and only a single one from the late 80s.

5) Games 1, 5, 15 and 21 have you run around in large space stations where something went terribly wrong. Looking closer, nr 21 is the forgotten grandfather of the genre, and game 15 tries really hard (and fails...) to match the class of the famous games one and five.

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

here is the quiz again... good luck!

June Quiz - Clues #2

I just watched the 2:1 Germany vs Sweden football game, and now I am writing this final quiz update over a cold beer.
So, there's four people from this community already participating, and 37 users in total... Actually, this time we have something that didn't happen in a while - there's one entry that every single person has gotten right. Cheers to that! Do you have a guess which one it is?

These are the final clues:

1) Of all those scary games with the bloody messages, only number 11 has you run around without weapons.

2) Only one title in this quiz was released for a Commodore computer... the 21 is a C64 game.

3) Game 24 is not as cutesy as it appears!

4) The creature on picture 20 lives alone in a little house.

5) Game 18 was first released on the Sega Dreamcast.

So, you got exactly one week left!

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

Here is the quiz one last time:

And yes, he is (usually) always right, and he is (almost) the sexiest gamer out there (not counting me) ;)

June Quiz - Answers & Score

The "bloody messages" are over, and looks like you had fun - 60 people joined, four more than last time. Average score is at 14.5, making this the easiest quiz of the year so far. Was it because of the many classics, the wild mix, few retro titles or just simpler screenshots?

Almost everybody got the Nr.4 right, but in the end there were three users who couldn't recognise the character as someone from the Sonic series.

July Quiz - Commodore

The highest selling home computer model in the world? That's the Commodore 64 from the early 80s, around 20 million were in use worldwide (even made its way into the guiness book of records). Commodore also made several more affordable entry models like the C16, which came with a delightfully retro cassette deck called the "Datasette". From the late 80s to the 90s things continued with the Amiga series, from the succesful Commodore A500 to the A1200 and the early 32bit console CD32... you notice something? This is a real RETRO quiz.

Where the last round had almost exclusively new games, this time most entries take us back far into the 1980s, with one half being C16 & C64 titles, and the other half being games for the Amiga Computers.

Don't worry if you were a PC or console gamer - there are many multiplatform titles in this quiz.

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

Here is the quiz... good luck!

July Quiz- Clues #1

1980s and early 90s Games for Commodore home computers are not that well known anymore despite their many excellent titles. Due to their age you have to be well over 30 yourself to have come in touch with them naturally.
So I am quite happy that even with a niche topic like this, we already have 30 participants after the first week (one of which are from this community).

I believe it's time for some clues:

1) here is a graphic that shows when the individual games have been released. The 16 and 64 stand for the C16 and C64, and the red/white ball is the symbol for an Amiga game.
Untitled

2) Number 13 has the same name as an old German (later international) TV-show, but it's not a license game.

3) Game 18 is a horizontally scrolling shooter, very similar to a legendary japanese shmup game.

4) On picture 14 you can see a computer virus, which you have to hunt in this action game. To do so you are using a small yellow robot with lots of different weapons.

5) Game number 1 has a few wannabe 3D sequences with static backgrounds, but number 16 and number 24 are first person shooters with real 3D graphics.

6) Before I forget... the games 1, 2, 3, 4, 19 and 20 are also PC titles, and the games 1, 2, 6 and 9 were also released for at least one console.
All others were either exclusives for that Commodore computer, or have only been ported to other home computers of that time (Spectrum, Atari) or iphones/ipads.

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

July Quiz - Clues #2

Ladies and gentlemen, there are now 9 days left to participate in this quiz! We are almost 40 people now, and I hope some more will join despite this being a niche topic. The lowest score right now is zero, so you won't be an embarassment.

There is currently one person from this forum.

I think it's time for the last few clues:

1) There are action figures and a cartoon show to go along with game 21.

2) Number 19 serves as an inspiration for the fallout series.

3) The games 11, 13, 15 and the 23 Are titles for the C16.

4) Title 22 took the wrong lessons from "rise of the robots" - also a 2D beat'em'up with render graphics and bad gameplay, but this time not even the graphics are pretty... rightfully getting it scores way below 50%.

5) Game 25 has a killer soundtrack! https://youtu.be/bHtd916cegw

July Quiz - Commodore - round ending soon

Hey, only THREE days left to join the july quiz!

We are 45 people in total, and one from here.

@Dogorilla: you will lose your participation streak if you skip this riddle, after so far eight rounds in succession. If you keep it up, there's extra awards for that at the end of the year.

Oh, and who is the joker who entered a lot of bogus stuff under my own name? Maybe I sleepwalked, but I'm afraid I had to disqualify myself.

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

I've managed to find out two of the answers for sure (I think) and taken a guess at one of the others, but this is not my round, I'm afraid. If it were classic Nintendo games I'm sure I'd ace it

July Quiz - answers & score

Now look at that, I thought the niche topic would reduce participants, but actually we even got more than last time - 63 people in total!
So it seems that the 80s Home Computer topic didn't take away as much fun as I feared... but regardless, the next riddle will be more varied again.

And the results? FOUR people won this round by getting every last game correct... you can see more when you scroll down.
