Funny, usually I am hopeless at these, lucky to get 3-4 in a normal round, but I can make out two in pic 3.

No, I just counted again - there's seven creatures on this one. The last monster will be only six parts again, so there's a total of 27 points (+1 from the bonus question).

Monster D (4 out of 4)

Aaaand BAM, the last creature has broken free! And it is... it is... some sort of lizard grandma with a purple skirt and bird feet?! Is this a joke?? Watch it though, that's a massive sword!

With this post, this months quiz has been fully revealed. Many of you have complained about the difficulty - and it's true, this is the toughest riddle I made in years, harder than the soundFX quizzes and at least as complex as the fake screenshots from a few years ago. In short, I do not expect anyone to achieve full score.

Do your best - and end of next week there'll be some clues as well.

Join in via http://www.retrogamequiz.com, name either the game or the monster.

You haven't sent in anything beyond the first monster but you are still exactly at the average score of five points - so don't worry, you're doing alright.

June Quiz - Clues #1

The monsters are roaming around! Can you stop them before they leave the lab?? Several body parts have not been identified, and many more have answer rates under 10%... there's lots of room for growth here, the average score is at just six points.

So far there are 40 people participating, and three from this community.


Here are some clues on genres and release dates to help you out:

Monster A:
Here we have 3x Survival Horror and one each for Open World RPG, Action Adventure, Soulslike and Racing games. It is the most modern creature, made from games from 2005 to 2020.

Monster B:
This Beast consists of two Metroidvanias, two classic scrolling sci-fi Shoot'em'ups and an action/strategy mix in space. Oh, there's an FPS as well! Most of the part of this creature have been rotated by 90 degrees.

Monster C:
Here you are looking at three classic RPGs plus a MMORPG, two FPS and a simulation. One of the Monsters doesn't even want to kill you, he just want's your money.

Monster D:
This creature is made of three more RPGs (all on Nintendo consoles), a point&click adventure, a SNES platformer and an Arcade Shooter. Four of the parts are from Boss enemies.


These are the release years of all games:


And about the bonus question: that game was released in 2020.


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

Souls-like ?
No RTS ?
Are you being clever using a 'Guest Starring' character ?

So it's 7,6,7,6 bits

Think I have 16-17 now...

Entered !

June Quiz - Clues #2

Can it be done? Are you strong enough to push those mad abominations back to the lab, where their hunger for destruction can no longer harm anyone? You only have four days left to help! It is lonely at the top for now, even with less than fifteen points you can still be in the Top 10.

So far there are 52 people playing... that's less than half of last round. From this community three people are in, I hope this weekend will see some more of you joining the ranks!


Here are the last clues, so don't hesitate any longer:

- Many people have guessed "Banjo Kazooie", but he and his games are not part of this round at all.

- The same goes for Half Life, StarCraft and Terminator.

- One body part is from a series which is known for its recycling of enemy graphics. Here you don't have to punish yourself to find the exact part, the name of the series is enough. The same goes for other franchises where the monster appears in several entries.

- Usually the rule is "1 monster = 1 part". However, EACH monster has an exception, where it is "1 monster = 2 parts". For example Creature B has its tail and eye stalks come from the same game.

So, there's no more clues - now join in!

Deadline is Tuesday the 30th June, participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Well, it was so much work that even with stellar participation I wouldn't do another one like that for a while.

That means you can join without the fear of getting any more of those!

Brutal yes, but a fun challenge. A couple of them are still driving me crazy. The clues were essential, probably doubled my score.
