March Quiz - answers & score

No matter if Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, PC, Commodore Amiga or Game Boy - the fake screenshots have all been solved, because two users managed to actually get every single game right.
One of them has already been good at the quiz in the past, but the real number one just joined the fun recently.

Who is that? You'll see at the end of the post, now let's show all the answers first! This post has as lot of pictures so get ready to scroll:



Image 1




1) Crash Bandicoot
the entire background is from the third part of Crash Bandicoot. Easiest point in the game, over 80% got it right.
solved by: 82%

2) Bubsy 3D
the player character is Bubsy from the only 3D part of the series.
solved by: 77%

3) Croc
Legend of the Gobbos! The rainbow gems and the brown creature are from this playstation game.
solved by: 57%

4) Super Mario 64

solved by: 39%

7) Pandemonium
items and UI elements are from this title, which isn't a true 3D jump'n'run, as you only move in a 2D plane.
solved by: 39%

8.) Tales from Heaven
probably the only true 3D platformer for the Commodore Amiga, more tech demo than actual game. The text and the wasps are from this game.
solved by: 9%

Congrats to Nobby_UK, you won this round!
That must have been a piece of work!!

Only J.R. (the quiz champion of 2017) scored as many points as you, but he sent his contribution a few days later than you.


Thanks to all for participating (hey Nexus!), and see you next time... in May! There are other users posting riddles for April (in the old maniac, Powerplay and Multimediaxis forums), if you suffer from withdrawal feel free to check there.

May quiz - dragons - clues #1

Thank you to the 24 people that already joined, and I am looking forward to more users participating! But now let me give you a first set of clues...

1) Seven of the 25 correct answers have the word "dragon" in it.
2) Game number 10 was developed by a french company.
3) The third game is an exclusive title for the playstation 3.
4) title number 8 is from a well known run'n'gun (...or jump'n'shoot?) series, but the dragon we see here was never seen in a console version.
5) Four games use the first person perspective, but only three of them can be counted as first-person-shooters.

So, did that help? Or still more questions than answers?

@Nobby_UK: yes, not bad! But not a perfect score yet. :P Maybe you'll find the missing ones before the month is over...

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

May Quiz - Dragons - Clues #2

Hi everyone, this quiz round ends on Thursday night! So far we have 34 participants, two of which are from this community.
Here is the last set of clues, from now on you're on your own...

1) Game 13 is from a fantasy action series, where a new installment was just released with game-of-the-year ambitions.
2) Number 19 is an exclusive title for the Xbox One.
3) stop asking - for the first and second game (and all others too...) it's enough to name the series/franchise, you don't need the exact part.
4) The 15th game is a license title to a post-apocalyptic action movie.
5) toughest one in the entire quiz... the 22 is a fantasy sidescroller for console and arcade.

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

June Quiz - slightly disturbing

For quite a while I have been collecting ominous blood messages on video game walls, with the intention of one day creating an especially dark quiz round. But after being unable to aquire 25 fitting contributions, I came up with a different approach... this round celebrates its contrast: half of it are bloody warnings from horror games,

and the other half is cute animal creatues, large eyed anime characters and other games with a colorful cutesy look.

Don't be distracted by this slightly disturbing mix and have fun finding the games!

Deadline is Saturday the 30th of June - please particiapte via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/


Here is the quiz... good luck!

Hey, that's odd! It's a regular PNG saved from photoshop... imgur upload like all my other quizzes.
You seem to be doing quite well though, even though you can't download it?

June Quiz - Clues #1

So, who of you is too distracted by E3 or world cup to join the gaming quiz? So far we are 25 people in total, one of which is from this community. :P

I think it's time for some clues, maybe that will inspire more people!


1) The numbers 6, 12, 14 and 20 are games by Nintendo.

2) Game 2 is a 2D platformer that was released this year.

3) Title 9 is a game over screen from a well known survival horror series.

4) The entire quiz is very "new", most entries (14!) are from the current decade, eight are from the 2000s, just two from the 90s and only a single one from the late 80s.

5) Games 1, 5, 15 and 21 have you run around in large space stations where something went terribly wrong. Looking closer, nr 21 is the forgotten grandfather of the genre, and game 15 tries really hard (and fails...) to match the class of the famous games one and five.

Deadline is Saturday the 30th of June - please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

here is the quiz again... good luck!
