10 seems to be the first glance number! And I'm pretty certain I know 19 - if it's what I think then it is a sequel?

I'll raise you - 2, now at 13!

No. 3 is confusing me as know what it looks like but there is no game?

Only 8 for me at first glance, but most do look familiar.

April Quiz - Clues #2

The countdown clock is ticking, agent! There's barely a week left to complete the mission - will you be succesful in extracting the intel on all 25 game titles? Fourty rival agents are already searching... here is the second and last set of clues. This message will self-destruct after reading.

Clues #2:
1) Game 3 is the youngest, and game 6 the oldest title of this round.
2) Number 15 is a lightgun shooter.
3) The games 1, 4, 6, 10, 13 and some in the last row are multiplatform titles that were also released for the Amiga home computer.
4) Title 19 however is an exclusive game for that platform.

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

Here is the quiz again: https://i.imgur.com/PmhA839.png

I actually found the "some in the last row" by accident while scouring HOL for #19 (which I have not found yet...). Why did the Amiga need to have so many games.

Yes, what a terrible fate.

I will complain about the low answer rate for #25 in the results.


Speaking of which - there's about 60 players so far, that's a bit low...

...so to any late joiners, now would be the time: this quiz ends tomorrow!

I give up, it doesn't matter what searches I put into google or youtube, I'm coming up bupkis. It's going to be around 15 for me if I'm lucky...
