#20 looks... nightmarish.

This is going to be a hard one. Except for the two Amiga classics which have been snuck in there of course. I'm at 4 positive and 4 maybe's...

Puts me in the mood to replay some Atari 2600 classics.

As it should be. Glad to see you are all still active even though the topic is a bit mean this month!

October Quiz - Clues #1

Notice something? This round we're capitalising RETRO, one fellow player called it a "real boomer quiz"! You can see the focus just by looking at the release dates.... ten of the games were released before 1989, twelve in the 90s, and only three in this millennium. So it's a long way into the past, but don't lose heart! Just look up some Atari Arcade classics

So far, only 25 people are participating, the scores are low and a top 10 place is already up for grabs with 13 correct titles. With this post, I'll bring the thread back up and give you some hints....

Hints #1:
1) In game #4, you control a tank.
2) There are also arcade versions of the following game series: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 15 and 17.
3) Title #3 is a licensed game, there are movies and comics with the same name.
4) Game #7 was a launch title of the Atari 2600.


Deadline is Sunday the 31st of October, enter via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here's the quiz again, good luck. https://i.imgur.com/2pCATBb.png

October Quiz - Clues #2

So my dear friends of video games, honour your classics and join in this round! There are less than ten days left before October is already over.

There are only about 40 players so far, and three from this community. Sure this round is frustrating, but remember - every single point helps your forum in the yearly ranking. So even if you only recognise one game, don't hesitate to submit your entry.

Hints #2:
1) #6 and #15 are multiplatform remakes of Atari classics for the new Atari VCS.
2) Do you like cat-themed mini games? Maybe game 13 is something for you.
3) Number 8 is a game with only three letters, which was ported to all kinds of systems between 1981 and 2010.
4) Title 11 is one of the most successful Atari 2600 games and sold millions of copies.

Deadline is Sunday 31 October, enter via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here's the quiz again, now let's go!

I have a week off next week, that's when I'm going to be doing my scouring

"Title 11 is one of the most successful Atari 2600 games and sold millions of copies."

I think I even owned it, but for the life of me I can't remember which game it was! I even checked a youtube video with all Atari 2600 games in it and I didn't spot it.

Possibly my favorite VCS game and is great on other systems too - Vic 20 version is another favourite!

16 sounds really good. I'm only just coming to this and doubt I can top that without a lot of searching. Fingers crossed.

Gosh darnit, I missed the boat again. Last Saturday the videocard in my computer broke... by the time I had something new up and running I was so busy installing and copying stuff that I completely forgot about the quiz.
