@Mr_Horizon I will say now, they all look bloody familiar, but can't name them all. (I didn't want any sleep tonight anyway lol)

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

It's not an easy month, the strong focus on 80s games took care of that. ^^;
But don't worry, brush up on your arcade classics and maybe check my clues once I post them.

October Quiz - Clues #1

Notice something? This round we're capitalising RETRO, one fellow player called it a "real boomer quiz"! You can see the focus just by looking at the release dates.... ten of the games were released before 1989, twelve in the 90s, and only three in this millennium. So it's a long way into the past, but don't lose heart! Just look up some Atari Arcade classics

So far, only 25 people are participating, the scores are low and a top 10 place is already up for grabs with 13 correct titles. With this post, I'll bring the thread back up and give you some hints....

Hints #1:
1) In game #4, you control a tank.
2) There are also arcade versions of the following game series: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 15 and 17.
3) Title #3 is a licensed game, there are movies and comics with the same name.
4) Game #7 was a launch title of the Atari 2600.

Deadline is Sunday the 31st of October, enter via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here's the quiz again, good luck. https://i1.lensdump.com/i/gCLwLb.png

October Quiz - Clues #2

So my dear friends of video games, honour your classics and join in this round! There are less than ten days left before October is already over.

There are only about 40 players so far, and one from this community. Sure this round is frustrating, but remember - every single point helps your forum in the yearly ranking. So even if you only recognise one game, don't hesitate to submit your entry.

Hints #2:
1) #6 and #15 are multiplatform remakes of Atari classics for the new Atari VCS.
2) Do you like cat-themed mini games? Maybe game 13 is something for you.
3) Number 8 is a game with only three letters, which was ported to all kinds of systems between 1981 and 2010.
4) Title 11 is one of the most successful Atari 2600 games and sold millions of copies.

Deadline is Sunday 31 October, enter via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here's the quiz again, now let's go!

I don't know why I don't know #24. It looks like a game I should know...

Well, that should help some to finish the last ones off. I just cleared #24 after all. That screenshot was really well selected to throw one off.

@Mr_Horizon I got a notification saying you mentioned me here but I can't see the post, was it deleted?

Mr_Horizon

@Dogorilla Yes I mentioned you at the bottem of the results post, in the local high score. Do you see that?

Mr_Horizon

lifer

@Mr_Horizon I've got the same issue as Dogorilla: got the notification, but your results post doesn't appear for me at all. No post between my previous one and the one from Dogorilla.

Odd, I also don't see any post with results .... Where did you post it, @Mr_Horizon?

Same here. I got the notification but no post. Weird.

Someone probably deleted it by accident...

@Mr_Horizon I can't see it even when I click on the link, that's really weird. For me there is no post #691 showing up on this thread at all.
