You're telling me. Recognising a music clip and not knowing which game it belongs to is a whole lot more aggravating than seeing a graphic clip and not remembering which game it is... The graphic clip you can just stare at and let it tickle your brain when you feel like it, the music clip lodges itself in your brain and won't let go be it night or day.

Tough quiz although it was nice for you to include one my games:

http://www.havsoft.co.uk/Files/Zynaps%20Remix.zip

Had no idea where I had ripped the music off from...until now!!!

Got 6 or 7 and there are a couple of annoying ones that I should know.

Corrected one and got a couple more. Can I just say that 24 is probably the worst noise ever to come from a computer...

Still a few more I can almost get?

August Quiz - Sound FX #4 - Clues

Can you hear the music? :P Just like its predecessors, this soundFX quiz is tough with lots of clips that ring frustratingly familiar - just with music instead of the effects & speech samples of the previous rounds. Almost 40 people are in so far, four from this community, and the average score is six.
This is the only set of hints. Instead of more clues, you get longer music clips next Wednesday, but those will also reduce the points you get for a correct answer to 0,66.

Here are the clues:

1) The games 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14 were only released on Nintendo platforms.
2) With the numbers 3, 7, 13 and 18 you hear music from Commodore home computers.
3) Lots of variety in the last row, the platforms are (not in that order) Dreamcast, DOS, ps1, VR and Genesis.
4) In the titles 1, 10, 18, 19, 22 and 24 you are moving in vehicles (land water or air).
5) Number 9 is a Sega Saturn game.

I hope these are useful.

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

I had several songs stuck in my ear when creating this round, it's the worst!
Especially 1,6, 13 and 15, I keep humming them to myself.

Yes indeed! I'm glad you were happy about that entry, but you essentially posted a link to the entire song along with the name... maybe wait a bit longer next time.

The music clips double in length this Wednesday evening - maybe that will help?

Apologies - in my excitement I didn't think what I was doing! Good tune though.

There is an increase now. If you don't get it, maybe do a hard refresh in your browser (CTRL + F5 usually).

Yes, I got that feedback a lot - seems like five or ten seconds length doesn't really make a difference.

In that light, I will skip the last music clip extension - there will be youtube links for each entry in the highscore post, so you can listen to all as long as you want.

Not sure if you would have the time to do this, but rather than an extension, maybe follow the music clip with a sound sample from the game?


Perhaps for the next quiz you could start with a short clip from the end of a music track (people are less likely to listen up to that point and end segments are often quite different from the remainder of the tracks). Extensions would therefore be towards the beginning.

That makes it harder to create the quiz, in both effort and eligible titles... I don't think I want to do that. :/

So the ending instead of the beginning? I hadn't thought about that - many songs have very slow intros, so that might be a way around it.

Three days left to participate this round!

August Quiz - Answers & Score

The music quiz is over, with these answers you can finally end your quest for that chiptune melody you just couldn't place.
The scoring went a bit different than planned - I extended the music only once, and all correct answers gave 0.7 points from then on. It was one of the hardest riddles ever, nobody achieved even twenty points.

If you were slightly off with your answer (e.g. Super Mario Bros instead of Super Mario Land) you'd also get the reduced point. But as I don't like half or quarter points, all scores were rounded up/down for the final score board.

In total there were 87 participants, four of which came from this community.

What were the answers and who made it into the top 10? Scroll down and see for yourself.

Being the one who suggested Boulder Dash, now that I know the answer I still think there are some similarities between the music to guess and the "music" in Boulder Dash that plays when the cave is forming (at 0:49):

I hope there will be a lawsuit for plagiarism .
