Guess which is the only one I know.... chose it over Quake as I only had an 040 back in the day. Frankly, I got no where in the game and would have had more fun playing Quake in a tiny window.

I remember buying the 'Amiga' game too. Not really my cup of tea (way too complicated puzzles), but it was a matter of pride to have it, just like the Quake port.

My Amiga had a 060... and Quake was still barely playable.

Oh, forgot about Napalm as another must-have (the answer to Command & Conquer)! That one was actually fun though.

Must say that I recently installed / played Earth 2140 & Earth 2140: Mission Pack - Final Conflict; it's also very cool

Exodus: The Last War is also pretty good.

March Quiz - clues #1

We are now at the halfway point of our walk in the park, and with over fifty participants (one from here) it appears you are enjoying this round. It might also be the difficulty, which apparently is a bit on the lower side for the first quiz of the year... you'll need more than 20 right answers to get a Top 10 position!

Some clues I will still give you - good luck and maybe they'll help you recognise more.

1) Number 21 and 25 show browser games.
2) Two years ago I took screenshot 23 myself on my Nintendo Switch.
3) Title #7 is the oldest of this round by far - a classic from the 1990s.
4) The games 3 and 19 are younger and were released in the 2000s.
5) But to my great surprise when I looked it up - ALL other games are from the past decade!

Deadline is Tuesday 31st of March, participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz again:

Finally sat down and had a go - this isn't a walk in the park for me! Had to work hard and potentially have 19!

6 more to find...

March Quiz - Answers & Score

Everybody back at home, washed your hands and ready for the Corona lockdown? Great! We were exactly one hundred people (wow!), and three from here. Given the amount of participants I guess you must have liked this round with slower and less action heavy games.

But some people clearly didn't get the theme of this month... who puts scary stuff like "outlast" or "five nights at Freddies" in a quiz about mainly walking simulators?

Before we dive into the answers, to this first round of the year I want to welcome three new communities:

'Inner Space' foiled my Full House
I guessed 'Shape of the World'

Looks like some people may have put the right answer
on the wrong line --- I've done that before...

I had to look that up actually. I have to admit it would have been an excellent fit not just for this number, but for the quiz in general!

Way more than usual, Dear Easter and Edith Finch were all over the place.


New round will start at some time next week!
