November Quiz - Answers & High Score

Alright, we managed to get to a crowd of 85, that's quite good. Four of you were even able to get the themes as well as the games completely correct, good job!

Let's start with the themes, followed by the games, then the pictures and at the bottom you'll find the High Score.


THEME 1 - Super Mario - 1 4 8 12 14
Almost everyone has gotten the plumber. This theme was easy thanks to the prominent character.
solved by: 95%

THEME 2 - Orcs - 3 5 9 20 23
Orcs are such a standard enemy for video games. They might look a bit different each time, but this theme was still quite easy for you.
solved by: 92%

THEME 3 - Christmas - 2 6 13 18 21
Now it gets more abstract. Here you had to connect the Grinch and Jack Skellington with Christmas, even without visual cues like red/white clothes or the "Die Hard" Christmas tree.
solved by: 88%

THEME 4 - Angels - 11 15 17 19 25
This one was tricky. While three pictures where still easy to spot as angels, number 15 shows a monster that you can only classify as "Angel" if you know the anime it is based on. Then there's the lady on picture 17, who is named Angel. Respect if you got this right!
solved by: 60%

THEME 5 - Peter Molyneux - 7 10 16 22 24
These five games are connected only by the star game designer Peter Molyneux. A quarter of you got this right - more than I had expected.
solved by: 25%

Positions:



- - - GAMES - - -

1) Super Mario Bros 3
Half points for other Mario Games, with the exception of Mario Maker (clever).
solved by: 84%
other suggestions: -

2) The Grinch
Nobody got a half point here, and thus the Grinch (Dreamcast Version) is the easiest game of this round.
solved by: 94%
other suggestions: -

3) Warcraft 3
solved by: 82%
other suggestions: World of Warcraft, Ogre

4) Super Mario RPG
solved by: 87%
other suggestions: -

5) Lego the Hobbit
Not the Lord of the Rings (half point), but instead the Hobbit. A bit mean.
solved by: 68%
other suggestions: Lego warcraft 3

6) Nightmare before Christmas
solved by: 76%
other suggestions: Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Beetlejuice

7) Theme Hospital
solved by: 65%
other suggestions: Sim Hospital, Invisible Man, Die Sims, A Christmas Caroll

8.) Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit
This is NOT Super Mario Kart 8 (not deluxe either!), plenty of half points here.
solved by: 74%
other suggestions: -

9) Gothic
The very first Gothic, still very blocky.
solved by: 61%
other suggestions: World Of Warcraft, Goblin Commander: Unleash The Horde

10) Fable
The cover of the first entry of the Fable series.
solved by: 86%
other suggestions: Dragon Quest

11) ActRaiser
solved by: 49%
other suggestions: Wonder Boy, Popolous, Kirbys Adventure, Kid Icarus, Final Fantasy

12) Mario is Missing
Half points for other Mario titles.
solved by: 65%
other suggestions: -

13) Christmas Lemmings
solved by: 59%
other suggestions: The Snowman

14) Super Princess Peach
A platformer where you control the princess. Our favourite italian is on the picture, so this title belongs to the Mario theme... but it's not a Mario GAME, so no half points for other plumber titles!
solved by: 66%
other suggestions: Mario, Super Mario, CD-i Mario, Paper Mario, Mario Teaches Typing, Mario Party DS, Mario is missing, Mario and Luigi Partners in Time, mario and luigi bowser's inside story, Mario & Luigi: Abenteuer Bowser

15) Neon Genesis Evangelion
License game to the anime series for the N64. Fight strange Monsters called "Angels" in your Mecha - picture shows the first of the invaders.
solved by: 40%
other suggestions: Virtua On, santa clause jr. advance, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Kid Icarus Uprising, Digimon

16) Black & White 2
That's the evil part of your conscience from the 2nd Black & White, much more detailed than in the first part.
solved by: 56%
other suggestions: Spore, Litil Divil, God of War 3, Dungeon Keeper

17) Wing Commander
This is your love interest in Wing Commander. Her name? Angel.
solved by: 51%
other suggestions: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

18.) Daze before Christmas
A very christmasy platformer for the Sega Genesis.
solved by: 49%
other suggestions: Weihnachten, Santa Claus, James Pond 2: Codename: RoboCod, Crazy Santa adventures

I was so stuck that I didn't even take the time to work out which screenshot belonged to which Mario game


Die Hard! My initial guess was that it was a Rambo game because of the perspective, but yeah... Rambo and a christmas tree? Makes no sense

Congratulations on the local win Nobby! (again)

Mario Kart Home Circuit caught me out. Very sneaky Mr Horizon, although you did try to warn us!

That was a good round. I think particularly enjoyable because I managed to get rid of a few that would have frustrated me quite late on.

If I'd spotted the darn Molyneux theme it would have helped a lot. Kicking self. Well done Nobby on another top 10 spot.

That's a nice way of making sure you got everything, interesting to see how people go about solving the quiz. In the earlier days there were several people in the Maniac forum taking turns in doing these riddles... I just tried to make my way through them somehow but never made lists like that.
I'm probably better at creating them than solving them!

Yes, but the warning just caused many people to update from "Mario Kart 8" to "Mario Kart 8 deluxe".

Well, there was an alternative to ActRaiser, but I don't like using covers too much. Would you have recognised this game?

Don't kick yourself, Molyneux was mean - you couldn't go after image contents at all, meaning you had to know most of the games already to even have a chance at getting the theme.

I have the game on Xbox. Picked it up for cheap from GameStation years ago. I don't think I ever played it.

December Quiz - King of the World

Are you the mayor of your town? The chieftain of your tribe? The president of your country, or even the emperor of your galactic realm?! This time we look at the bigger picture - games where you control leaders and decision makers that steer entire countries as well as armies and civilians alike.
This can mean political and armed conflict or peaceful building strategy. Sometimes it's all about the survival of your people in a harsh environment, or about political intrigue for more power.

Do you like to be king of the world? Then take a look at this quiz and show us what you know.


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

Here is the last quiz of the year, enjoy!

#23! No clue which game it is (it must be as old as I am) but I have respect for games which manage to have such clear graphics with just monochrome colours.

Excited for this one, great excuse to look up some classic strat games. Also can't wait to see the end of year report.

So far I can see at least 2.

I'm a slow starter, okay.
