@GrailUK Nice! I don't think I'm spoiling anything if I say #21 is pretty old!

I resubmitted, should be fairly close to full points now.

@lifer Oh nice. I'll be happy with half marks or over

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

July Quiz - Clues #3

Sixty people in the game, three from here, and zero with a full score? Well, then I'm helping one last time - so that all the fair-weather people can get back to their screens and maybe one particularly creative nerd will guess everything correctly after all.

Here is the third and last portion of clues, because the round ends this Saturday:

1) The Penguin Game #9 first appeared as an arcade title in 1982.
2) The #17 has you shoot up some crazy TV show and also first came out as an arcade game.
3) Look at #19! That's rare indeed, a Sega Saturn exclusive.
4) Game #8 is a story-heavy platformer from 2019, you control a robot.

Deadline is this Saturday the 31st of July, enter via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here's the puzzle one last time: https://i1.lensdump.com/i/ZBLN4K.png

Oh, no hints for #9, #17 and #19! I thought those are three of the five hardest games this time, seperating the super nerds from the ubernerds. Although I felt really stupid when I figured out #17... with that clue it would have been obvious!

I keep forgetting about these quizzes - looked at this on Friday at work, but forgot to submit when I got home. I'll have to 'watch' this topic for future quizzes. Reckon I know maybe 7 or 8 of them without the clues.

@Mr_Horizon Brilliant quiz. I answered off the top of my head and I think the difficulty was spot on. A couple of games I doubt I would have ever guessed, others i'm kicking myself over. Just fab

(Which version of Elite is that, I'm old and only know the C64 version hee hee)

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

How did more than 50% of people know 'Shower with your Dad Simulator'? Is that what everyone's playing these days?

Currently Playing:
I don't even know any more, I have so many video games, help me

@Dogorilla Must admit, never heard of it. Sounds a bit trashy to me lol.

It was the Amiga version, so there were some nicer graphics for the "planet info" screen. Here's another one like it, but with a "large bug-eyed lizard" instead of the human woman.

Not quite what I expected (my "time travel" material collection was already done...) and not really my genre either, but let's have a look. So this time it's about puzzle games and puzzles in games... lots of expected classics are included, but I've tried for a few surprises too!

Deadline is Tuesday 31st of August, enter via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here comes the quiz, enjoy:

I'm in the minority on this one and managed to google a wrong answer.

Love the topic this time. Some of the best games of all time featured.

Yeah, what was up with "The Age Of Decadence", isn't that some regular fantasy rpg? Like, not pixelated at all?

Love the topic this time. Some of the best games of all time featured.

Glad to hear that, I think ResetEra likes it too.

I didn't get around to look into this until today, but fortunately, the topic is my jam and the month relatively easy.

But this month is great.
Three of the games featured are strong candidates for my all time top 10, and I had to laugh at the entries for the "hidden" secondary theme that connects many of the games featured. Great choice!

You'll have to elaborate on that when the answers are revealed, I haven't noticed a secondary theme.

@Dogorilla Will do. Can't write anything yet, as it would probably make some of the answers easily findable.
