Apparently it's not so easy, even though it already received two official clues. 56 participants and no one has an idea...

You can just send in your entry, that would make me really happy.

I decided to play a few Amiga games and stumbled into no.15!!! I had never heard of it before but it looks like an interesting game.

Ah, I didn't do too badly. I'm kicking myself over Transbot somewhat, and Undertale to a lesser extent, but pretty happy with that. Thanks for the fun Mr Horizon!

Didn't expect to do this well - obviously we all found it a challenging quiz! Well done to all and thanks as always to Mr H for the time and effort he puts into organising the quiz.

Roll on this months...

Cool quiz! Let me see if I can get above 15

#13 surprises me though... you can just type the text into google. Is it a zombie joke because it is a ... nobrainer!?

October Quiz - Clues #1

Some say zombies in media are on the retreat, and I am tempted to agree - really big & serious apocalypses got rare, and any new undead movie in the cinema is either smaller or takes the genre with plenty of humour... they are still easy to implement as video game enemies though, and the good participation rate of the October quiz also makes me believe you're not quite sick of the theme yet.

So far there are 57 people playing, and one from here.

Now it's time for some clues:

1) You frequently ride a motorcycle in game number 4.
2) This round is quite modern: There's only three games from the 80s, eight from the 90s, five from the 2000s and nine titles from the current decade.
3) When looking at all the names of this round - there's 9x the word "zombie" and 6x the word "dead"
4) The games 21 and 24 have more in common that just the theme.
5) Thanks to a planning mistake there's now the same game series three months in a row. -_-

Deadline is Thursday 31st of October, please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz again, good luck: https://i.imgur.com/bgglcjt.png

The 4th was helpful

I just counted again, the "6x" and "9x" is still correct. I guess next week Friday you'll know more.
