Whoops, I think I put Wasteland for #21 when I meant to put it for #19 -.-

Mr_Horizon

@Dogorilla: I sometimes give points for correct answers misplaced in adjacent fields, but not when they are further away! Didn't help that Wasteland and Mask both have this top down view, so it would even fit for someone to confuse them. Well, you'll know better next time...

August Quiz - Retro Pixel #2

Hossa, almost forgot the quiz for this month! I'm having a busy couple weeks right now with moving countries and job hunting... that means the SoundFX quiz that some of you are looking forward to is coming a bit later.

Instead we are getting a new entry in the "retro pixel" series. For August we don't focus on a specific platform, but are looking for a wild mix of zoomed in characters from all kinds of genres, devices and decades.

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

Here is the quiz... good luck!

August Quiz - Clues #1

Despite my experience in creating these riddles, sometimes I misjudge the difficulty - like this time apparently. The first two rows turn out to be sorta doable, but afterwards it gets dark for everyone - and we are only ten people so far (none from here).

The average score is below 10, and many titles have not been found out at all.

I hope there's going to be some more people soon, I intend to help with these clues:

1) These games exclusively run on Nintendo hardware: 1, 3, 4, 6, 11, 24.

2) On all screenshots you see the protagonist, to be directly controlled by you. The exceptions are 8+23 (part of a team), 11+17 (enemies), 16+18+20 (your guests & your tribe), and number 24 (tutorial character).

3) Nr 15 and 25 were only released on Commodore home computers.

4) The following titles are handheld-exclusives: 1, 3, 4, 11, 24.

5) In game #2 you see the Arcade version of a multiplatform title from the early 80s.

6) Number 14 is a point & click adventure from the mid 90s.

So, I hope this does help a little?

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

@Dogorilla: Thanks man! Moving from UK to Germany in ten days!

This was really hard, I only know seven of these. Will there be another set of clues before it’s over?

@JoakimZ: Yes, there'll be more next weekend... any requests for a number you're especially clueless about?

Mr_Horizon

JoakimZ

@Mr_Horizon The only ones I know for sure are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 11.
I know I recognize 5, 8, 10, 12, 17, 23 and 24, but I have stared myself blind and can’t seem to place from which games, so maybe some clues could nudge my memory on those. I’m totally clueless about the rest.

August Quiz - Clues #2

Ladies and Gentlemen, it's time for the final rush - there are only six days left to join this round. Chances for scoring in the top 10 are good, for just 12 points you get a seat. Average score is at 9.5, and even the best candidates have barely made twenty points.

So far there is one user from this forum.

Okay, here are the final clues:

1) Two games in this round are classics by Bullfrog Productions.

2) The 21 is a tough platformer with a "circus" theme, which has been released on most modern platforms.

3) On image number 12 you can see one of four playable cowboys.

4) Game 24 is a well known racing series.

5) In title number 6 your perspective frequently changes from a Sim City style top down view to an action oriented sideview.

6) The protagonist on 13 is from a well known western RPG series.

So, I hope this does help a little? Come on and join the game!

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

here the quiz one last time - good luck!

Hey, you're missing some of the other suggestions. I seriously thought that one of them was "Boy Walks Down Street: Deluxe Edition"

Mario Maker 2: JN2-5GV-VTF
Latest Level: The Mario Repair Shop 361-D5D-1CG

Mr_Horizon

@ReaderRagfish true, I filter out the jokes. Some good ones there! But I try to have only those suggestions in the final post that were actually attempts to guess the right game.

I hope you had fun The next round will be easier.

Mr_Horizon

RedderRugfish

@Mr_Horizon I guess I'll just have to be more subtle next time.

But it was fun, looking forward to the next one.

September Quiz - Couch Multiplayer Party

Sometimes you just can't get enough... in this round nobody is sitting in front of his screen alone, but with at least three people: Couch Multiplayer is the theme, and the games of the September quiz offer three to eight players a chance to compete against each other with a lot of fun and chaos.

But this time one thing is different...WATCH OUT:

To shake up the quiz a bit and to pay tribute to a wild multiplayer experience, you get a chance to pick a "Mario Kart Item" in addition to using your usual skill factor.

These items will do about what you expect:

Untitled
This time Bananas also work against Lightning and blue shells.

But what about strategy? Won't everyone just go with a triple shroom for three extra points?!

Answer: not everybody can use every item. Next to each item is this field:
Untitled

You have to guess your position in the high score list - with green you get the item, with red you don't.

Are you a top candidate and in the upper 10-20%? Then you can only pick items which show green on the far right side of the red/green field. So, in this case that means bananas.

Or do you estimate you'll be more in the center of the field, at about 50-60%? Then you can select items where the field shows green in the center - so except for the blue shell, lightning and triple red shell you can go for anything.

And if you are quite sure to end up on the bottom of the field this time (10-20%)... well, then the items you can pick have green markers on the left side, which means the blue shell or lightning can be yours.

Those who estimate wrong and pick an item unfitting for their position in the field, will instead get nothing - so be careful!


You are right, this round is unnecessarily complex and distorts real skill to favour random luck. I expect all of you to hate this, which is why we are only doing it once.


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

Here is the quiz... good luck.

Ha, this item system is a great idea! I actually know a decent number of answers this time. If I submit the answers I know now, will I be able to fill in the form again to add more answers after the clues have been posted?

Mr_Horizon

@Dogorilla yes you can update your entry as often as you want - just leave blank fields where you don't want to change anything, and only fill in the games you want to add/update (and username + forum of course).

September Quiz - Clues #1

The first 17 people have already entered this multiplayer riddle (two from here), and it appears this is not a very easy quiz either. Oh dear! I hope the following clues will help you.

1) Number 9 is a partygame for the first Xbox, with lots of Minigames for up to four players.

2) The 10, 16, 19 and 23 first appeared for the Ouya console, before they were later ported and developed further on more succesful platforms.

3) Game 12 is a 2D vertically scrolling Shoot'em'up with pixel-look and a four player mode.

4) The following titles had a release on the Sega Dreamcast: 2, 6, 13

5) The games 18 and 24 are racing games for up to 8 players, and they were both released on the same Nintendo console.

6) And the last one, number 25 is an Amiga game from the year 1996.

If you're not convinced about this rounds "Mario Kart items"... just pick a banana and you'll be playing it safe.

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

September Quiz - Clues #2

Players, get ready! Now there's over 20 people already in the game (none from here yet), and while nobody has gotten a full score, there is an odd divide in points - just 8 people have achieved more than ten points, and of those only four managed to get 20 or more.

In terms of the items... this is the most defensive Mariokart game of all times, barely anything goes on besides bananas and mushrooms! That's not what I had in mind, but so be it, as you wish.

Let's see if I can help a bit more - here is the 2nd round of clues:

1) Game 8 is the first part of a well known trivia quiz series.

2) In title 10 you fight each other with bow and arrows.

3) Number 17 has a lot going on onscreen, it's difficult to spot your own character in the crowd (it's made for four players).

4) Game 21 has just been released a month ago, you fight each other with very agile vehicles.

5) The german developers of title 23 openly admit being heavily inspired by Starfox.

6) I'm gonna be honest - I don't expect anyone to figure out game 25. It was developed by two guys (Dave and Den) in the UK, and it's not listed in the usual game databases. I only remember it because I found the 8 player mode quite impressive back in the day.
So I hereby declare: Who gets #25, will receive TWO points.
