September Quiz - Answers & Score

Hey, thanks to all of you! With 52 people thats a pretty big couch for couch multiplayer. The items have shaken up the results a bit, we saw losing 1,5 points from red shells to gaining 2,5 points from mushrooms.

hardest title of this round. A tiny public domain game on the Amiga, not visible in the Amiga game databases like lemonamiga or hall of light. There's not even screenshots - I had to reconstruct the fragment you see here from the only existing low-res video clip.
With all my hints, eight people managed to find it (congrats, double points!). But honestly - how did you find it?? Actually played it back in the day, or did you do some elaborate research?

@haynor666: Don't be mad, these riddles are not easy... especially not the October quiz which you will get in a few minutes.
At least your item choice worked out well for you!

October Quiz - Sound FX #3

Feared by some, celebrated by more: It's time for the extra-elaborate version of my series... the sound FX quiz!

So then, in its third installment... for 40 years video games have been beeping and ringing into our ears - do you think some of these sounds and words stuck with you? Time to find out!

As I can't post sound effects in this forum (the picture below is just a dummy), you can find the quiz at the URL below. The form to enter your answers can be found by clicking the "click to join" button.

Here is the quiz: www.retrogamequiz.com

Deadline is Wednesday the 31st of October.

And don't forget: Sure this is ridiculously difficult, often even harder than the image riddles. But remember that's the case for everyone, so please don't be discouraged and join in.

I only got one Amiga title ---

That last Computer Laugh (#15)
sounds like an Amiga...

#EDIT
I changed headphones
and now I can make out what is said
for #21 and that WAS an Amiga game

Did the ports also have that sample ???

October Quiz - Clues #1

"Hey! Listen!", "Now let's take a look...", "50.000 people used to live here..." and then just a row full of laughter?! - that's the October sound quiz for you. How are you getting on so far?

The average score is just shy of six points (oh dear!) and so far we are 25 people (two from here). The number one spot is currently tied between the Multimediaxis and English Amiga Board - but both still have less than half of the points.

Think we can do more? I hope so! So far there's only three titles nobody found out (22,23,24), but numbers for the others are still really low. Here are some clues:

1) The Sounds 6, 13, 19, 21 and 22 are from the intros of their games.

2) The games 2, 4, 6, 7, 16, 17 and 25 are played from the first person perspective.

3) Number 23 and 24 are succesful MMOs.

4) Titles 1, 5, 12 and 14 are from Nintendo.

5) Game 8 is based on a disney license.

So, did that help? :P


Here is the quiz: http://www.retrogamequiz.com

Deadline is Wednesday the 31st of October.
