May Quiz - Clues #1

Well, is the old DOS tower still booting properly? Or do you satisfy your nostalgia via emulators instead. ^_^ This months riddle is well received so far - forty people are in, and two from this forum.

Here are some clues - good luck!

1) Four games were published by EA.
2) In the 11, 13, 15 and 16 you are driving a car.
3) There is a first person shooter hidden in the second row.
4) I made a mistake with game #5, that isn't a DOS game. -_-


Deadline is Sunday the 31st of May, participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz again: https://i.imgur.com/fRPPKc2.png

You are the second person to say that, which made me check every single entry a second time (on mobygames).
I still say there's three, not four.

Do you want to send me a private message with titles you have as EA?


EDIT: both Nobby_UK and I have discovered that Mobygames is WRONG on an entry. Boooh! So there's FOUR games by EA.

I think I'm into double digits at least. There are still some that look vaguely familiar, so I might be able to scrape a few more.

Amiga was my main computer until 2001 and I had consoles for other gaming, so this is not my ideal round. No less fun though! It's jogged a few nostalgic memories of playing on friends' PCs which were otherwise lost to me.

Yeah same here on the jogging memory part, there were a few where I had actually forgotten the game existed. But so far I have had zero luck filling in my blanks, not for a lack of research effort I might add. The first thing I do when I get up every morning is get tea and try to find a missing game

Finally my brain is kicking into gear. I've played or watched more of these than I first realised. Still some frustrating ones that I swear I've seen somewhere.

May Quiz - Clues #2

Did you know? The data transfer rate of an original 90s single speed CD-ROM drive was 150 kb/sec. The disc drive of a modern Playstation 4 however reads 27000 kb/sek. Look at all that progress!

But let's hurry back to this months quiz... as sunday next week it'll be over. So far there are 70 people playing, and two from here.

Here are the last hints - good luck to all of you.

1) Two entries were developed by Bullfrog.
2) The oldest game is from 1987, the newest one from 2000.
3) Three titles were published by Microprose.
4) Image 18 shows the intro of the game.

Deadline is Sunday the 31st of May, participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz one last time: https://i.imgur.com/fRPPKc2.png

Means one of the 3 I don't know was published by Microprose.

So now I have to look at their back catalogue...

Got it

Question

Can I reevaluate a couple of my choices? Or is it over and done the moment I submitted my answers?
I have to admit that these are tough as nails, especially for us Amiga-heads!

You can still re-submit your answers

An Amigan should get 5 or 6 possibly 7 if into C64

Thank you for your reply.
I think that I got 2 more...
I agree with you, it's really hard for an Amiga user to find more than 7.

Congrats to the winners!
And a warm applause for those coming from EAB!
It's definitely not an easy task...
My choice for 19 was not what I thought it could be...
I've chosen Herzog Zwei instead.
