December Quiz - Hackers

So, what are we hacking today? The blast door to the mainframe? The memory chip of that android? A virtual server somewhere in cyberspace? Some killer AI gone rogue? Or are we just doing a fun hacking minigame or watch a "hacking..." progress bar?!

No matter if just a tech-savy sidekick character or the central gameplay/story element, hacking is our theme for December - the last quiz of the year.

It's gonna be a bit harder than the dog quiz, but I hope you'll have fun regardless.

Deadline is Monday the 31st of December, please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com

Here is the quiz... good luck.

December Quiz - Clues #1

Okay, so far there are 33 people trying their luck and knowledge this round, one of those from this community. Have you joined yet? Will you after this set of clues?

1) Several games are based on famous movie licenses: Number 2, 8 and 10.

2) The 17, 19, 21 and 25 are also license games, but the source material is very mixed... we have a Manga, toy line, offline-RPG and book license.

3) The oldest game (fifth row) was released in 1985, the newest title (third row) just came out in October this year.

4) Picture 9 shows a turtle.

5) Picture 11 shows a robot mechanic. He gives you an item that lets you hack and take over other robots.


Deadline is Monday the 31st of December, please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com

December Quiz - Clues #3

Watch out folks, this quiz ends on monday - you only have the weekend left! 54 people are in so far, that's not bad. Two of these are from this forum.

Christmas is over, and so are any excuses - come and join the last riddle of 2018!


1) Number 7 is not System Shock.

2) Borderlands is not in this quiz at all.

3) The same goes for Lawnmower Man.

4) To get a full point for number 17 you have to give me the name of the specific toy line this license game is about. The big brand name only gets you half a point.

5) Come on now, "the world" is not the correct answer for Game 19!


Deadline is Monday the 31st of December, join in via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here the quiz a last time - good luck & a happy new year!
