Cannon Fodder had a third release and a Wing Commander animated series... lots to learn this first round of the season despite the full points start.

I hope more of the NL crew will return over the next few months.

April Quiz - Espionage

You are a secret agent? You infiltrate heavily guarded facilities, can handle your gun (nevermind, ALL GUNS), and for your government or unspecified secret organisation you go to the limits of your very special abilities? Then this is the place for you - we need capable people to identify these 25 games!

All titles are (sometimes more, sometimes less) about agents, hitmen or spies - and in the bonus question you can complain about how I forgot to put genre classic XYZ in this mix.

Deadline is Friday the 30th of April, please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz, good luck agent!

It's been a while since I've got more than a few points on one of these... maybe I'll do better this month.

Currently Playing:
Pikmin 3 Deluxe (Switch), The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii), Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright (3DS)

Amiga really is the toughest platform for me. Still, a good result.

May Quiz - Make a Wish!

In the first quiz of this year I had asked for your wishes - so which game should appear in one of my riddles to make you especially happy. This month your wish might come true, so take a close look.
Because of this rounds nature there is no bigger theme connecting the 25 games, they reach over all decades, genres and platforms... but there is one special rule, which says that if you don't recognise your own wish, you get a penalty point. D:

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

Here is the quiz, good luck!

There is no harm in guessing! And remember that naming the series is usually enough, in most cases you don't have to pin down the precise entry.

NYEH!!! Prepare to be amazed. Fall to your knees. I am Himiko Yumeno, the Ultimate Mage. But... I'm officially called the Ultimate Magician.

My game wasn't used 😭 It could have been the easiest of them all or be made true fifth row material.

As others wrote, the assembled pics look fun, and there should be something for everyone.

Maybe I submitted a different game than I remembered? #18 is a secret favourite of mine, so it makes me wonder...

May Quiz - Clues #1

Of the over 80 suggestions for a new user generated quiz, only 25 could make it into this Make-a-wish round... with a bit of luck your game is there too, so take a close look.

It is by no means an easy round, more a random chaos instead, so I will give you some clues again - here are the Clues #1:

1) Game 14 is the grandfather of a RPG series that was released for DOS computers.
2) Number 18 is an exclusive game for the Atari 2600, released in the early 80s.
3) With the 19 we have an fps with a focus on multiplayer, appearing first on Xbox 360 and Windows in 2009.
4) Title 20 is loosely based on a bible story, you fight some angels in melee combat.

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

Here ist the quiz again, good luck to all of you:

Thanks for hint #4. "Fighting angels in melee" was the nudge I needed.

Maybe I'm misinterpreting hint #1... from the wording I'd think you're referring to the first game of that RPG series, and not the one I posted?

There is something strange going on with #14, maybe I made a mistake with that hint or misinterpreted the wish in general... and you are not the only one asking about it! I will investigate and give an update in clues #2.

I replayed the games about a year ago after listening to a podcast about them. While the games are very similar, two things on the picture point at the submitted answer being the right one. Honestly, it's too subtle to differentiate over, though. Usually, you are lenient with numbered parts... will you accept either answer as correct?

lifer

Mr_Horizon

May Quiz - Clues #2

So far there are 36 players, and eight users have already succesfully recognised the games they wished for. Nice! However, in this round the entry #14 has caused questions in several communities, and I have since come to realise that this title's engine has been used in so many other RPGs (I count at least eight), that it amounts to an impossible task - nobody has gotten it right.

I am therefore making an exception this time, and will accept every game using the same engine as a correct answer. If you already entered an answer like that, it is now treated as a correct entry.

Here are the Clues #2:

1) Number 9 is a game from this decade, where you explore an unknown (and very colorful) planet.
2) The plot of title 13 plays entirely under water.
3) Game 16 is a simple platformer that was released between 93 & 94 for only Nintendo and Commodore platforms.
4) The #12 isn't a Game Boy title, it was released for a range of modern platforms. You play an octopus with unusual skills.

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