-:The Ultimate Amiga Quiz:- !


UPDATE:

I had many requests on adding more pictures and questions, so I did.

* Now it's 30 questions instead of the original 20
* Now it's more than twice as many screenshots than before (100 now, was 40 before)
* An exploit problem has been fixed. Before after playing it for a while and you knew all the games that could appear, you didn't have to look at the screenshots to pick the right answer because of my dirty not-showing-the-same-anwer-twice-on-the-same-screen fix (that's how people got the max score of 12600. I won't get into details). So now people HAVE to look at the screenshots to know which answer to pick . Only drawback now is that it's no longer a guaranteed new screenshot everytime time, but that's no biggie .

So, now all the current scores can easily be beaten as there are 10 more questions = more points.

Have fun , it's more fair gameplay now.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maybe not the ultimate one, but there probably aren't that many around anyway, and those I've seen sucks ass... so I made my own Amiga Quiz... in FLASH of course. It's special in some ways; most quizzes shows you when you click the wrong name, or the right one. My version don't, well, you can just see if your score increases instead. Can make it in anyway I want, and this is how I wanted it

As the host of the previous highscore system I used has ceased to exist (site for sale), I'm using a new one now, better in some ways, but worse in more ways than good. Hate those extra tabs, the Facebook thingy and that you have to click "No thanks...".

So, play.... enter your name, click "Submit Score" then click on "No thanks...". To play again just click "Close".

It's a bit like "Guess the screenshot" thread thingy... tiny boxes appears on the screen, each one revealing more and more of the screenshot.

If you don't like the music, click the mute button

I made it for RecordedAmigaGames.org, but as probably alot of you guys don't go there, and maybe like quiz games, I posted it here.

PS, just hope the game runs as fast as it does in my YT video (50fps), cuz Hipoonios just played it on a slow computer and has all the time he needs to think :P... damn cheaters and their slow computers!

Cool game! I noticed that sometimes you get the same game listed twice among the three alternatives.

Yeah.... hopefully those two are not the correct title, or you have 50/50 to pick right.. meh... should try to fix that. Will try to fix this later.

Thanks for the positive comments . I'm glad to see people enjoyed it, although it has some flaws, like sometimes the same name twice.


Ok, to solve the x2 game name problem, I just need to add more game names to the fake game name list....... but need them to be like this:

"Name1", Name2", "Name3", "Name4", "Name5".... etc

I have found a list on the internet like this:

Quote:
1869
4D Sports Boxing
4D Sports Driving
4D Sports Driving (Second Review)
A-Train
A10 Tank Killer (original version)
A10 Tank Killer (version 1.5)
Academy: Tau Ceti II
Addams Family, The
Advanced Destroyer Simulator
Adventures of Robin Hood, The
Adventures of Robin Hood, The (Second Review)
Afterburner II
A.G.E. (Advanced Galactic Empire)
Agony
Airball
Airborne Ranger
Air Support
AirTaxi
Akira
Aladdin
Alfred Chicken (CD32)
Anyone know how to get them to line up like the above example in bold? Some text editors have this "replace" thingy, but can't use that here...

There must exist some automatic way to do this.
