March Quiz - Clues #2

So Ladies and Gentlemen, it is Sunday the 28th... this means there's only four days to participate in this classic retro round. So can you dig out your MS-DOS memories and find those games?

So far there are 45 players, and three from this forum.


Here is the final sprint - with the last clues:

1) Game 16 follows a Disney cartoon movie.
2) Title 7 is part of a sci fi action franchise with lots of games, books, a movie and a cartoon series.
3) Number 19 is (in the USA) one of many games to a series of movies and books.
4) Game 17 is a point&click adventure with horror elements, released in the early 90s.

Deadline is Wednesday the 31st of March, participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here the quiz one last time, good luck:

Never seen Shark Attack. It's nice to discover new old games.

Pretty sure I've got 21/25. The 4 I can't get (all on the last line) elude me..

Definitely recognise one I haven't got but the other???

I got only 20 out of 25 and I'm expecting 2-4 of them to be wrong... Disappointing.

I think a cartoon for number 7 has surprised us all!

Got my entry in last night. I'm thinking I got 20/21 plus a couple of guesses I have zero confidence in. It's made me want to play/replay a lot of the titles. I wonder if I'll ever have that sort of time again?

Well done guys. I'd hoped to get a few more but had little time this month.

Donkey game looks rad.

better than expected. I'm kicking myself over not knowing M.D.K.... I couldn't find any screenshot to prove it so I took a wild stab at #13 being Dark Seed 2... so close!

April Quiz - Espionage

You are a secret agent? You infiltrate heavily guarded facilities, can handle your gun (nevermind, ALL GUNS), and for your government or unspecified secret organisation you go to the limits of your very special abilities? Then this is the place for you - we need capable people to identify these 25 games!

All titles are (sometimes more, sometimes less) about agents, hitmen or spies - and in the bonus question you can complain about how I forgot to put genre classic XYZ in this mix.

Deadline is Friday the 30th of April, please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz, good luck agent!

Only 10 off the bat, this is going to be a long one again I don't know #19 but it looks like my type of game. Small sprite platformer.

Also #21... is that a guy holding a keyboard-gun? What the heck.

Not that I'm playing, but I recognise a fair few of these

A few Amiga titles also

@gimbal; I think I know what 19 is... and there's an Amiga version if I'm correct.
