Well you're doing better than me, I have two themes with only three games in them

November Quiz - Clues #1

25 points for 25 correct names... and this time an additional five points for all of you that can figure out the five themes hidden in this round.
That's quite exciting, and now that the month is half over we have 26 people in the game. There can definitely be more - so when are YOU joining? :P

Watch out, this time I am more strict with the game titles. So if you don't enter the right part of a series or franchise, you'll only get half a point!

Here are the first clues:

1) Game 5 is a LEGO title.
2) The entries 6, 14 and 24 were not released on stationary devices.
3) Number 8 is the newest game in this round.
4) Image #10 is not ingame, but shows a part of the cover.

Deadline is Monday the 30th November, participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz again:

"stationary devices". That's the first time I hear it described like that. So only on handhelds, then?

I didn't want to type it out like that, as I wasn't sure if a smartphone game counts as handheld, or just as mobile game?

But you are right: The entries 6, 14 and 24 were not released on stationary devices are either handheld or smartphone games.

You hold a phone in your hand to operate it, so that would definitely qualify it as a handheld device

November Quiz - Clues #2

This round has seen only sparse contribution, so far 35 people have joined - three of which from this community. Mmmh, I wonder why? Well, maybe some more will come now that there's a new set of clues!

Here are four more clues:

1) Game 20 is the software version of a board game.
2) You are playing a god in number 16.
3) Title 9 is a german Action RPG.
4) The games that belong to a theme are never directly after each other, there is always a gap of at least one game.

Deadline is Monday the 30th November, participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz again, good luck.

No help for #11 --- the one I'm stuck on.
