September Quiz - Retro Pixel #4

No backgrounds or unnecessary detail? Instead some old 320x200 screenshot magnified a dozen times until just a handful of pixels vaguely resembling the player character are visible? With its information reduced down to the bare mininum, the Retro Pixel Quiz is a returning classic - and probably a bit easier than last months music round.

There's a bonus question at the end - while there's no additional points to win, you can influence my choices for the next music quiz.


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

Here is the quiz, have fun!

Those pixels are good for you - much fewer people with less than five points this round. I hope you still enjoy the quiz, for now we are 36 people and one from here.

Here are some clues:

1) The games 5 and 11 are graphic adventures.
2) 15 and 22 are exclusive releases on Commodore computers.
3) Title 13 is from a German developer.
4) Number 23 and 24 show you games on an Atari platform.

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

Here is the quiz again, good luck!

#11 is the most evil one for me. I know that face, I've seen it.

But there is just no way I'm going to remember which game with only the extremely zoomed in face to go on.

Yeah the previous post was made before I noticed that hints were already given out which state that #11 is an adventure game. It's still not popping into my brain for now though, even with your added illegal punishable by flogging extra hint

September Quiz - Clues #2

So, today in a week? Then the quiz is OVER, you have only seven days left to send in your answers or update your existing entry. Even though the average score is much better this round, several games have proven to be extra tough: The 15 and 23? No one got them right! The 20, 21 and 24? Just one correct answer each!
And no participant has gotten to 20 points or more, so the doors are wide open to score a top position.

So far there are 52 users in total, and two from this community.


Here are some more clues:

1) The developers of #15 come from the UK, and this 90s platformer is their only game.
2) The game you see in field 21 has only two levels and loops forever.
3) The titles 9, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21 were also released as arcade versions.
4) About number 23: There are several games with this name, all on different systems and released over a span of 14 years... they have nothing in common besides the theme reflected in the name.

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

Here the quiz again, good luck!
