June Quiz - Clues #1

SEEEEE-GAAAA! That's really some masterful sound branding here... and you can be masterful too, when you ace this round because you have had some Sega in your live. ;) So far no one of the 35 players has achieved a full score.

But why am I still talking? Here's the first set of clues:

1) This time there's 9 games for the Dreamcast, 6 for the Saturn, 3 each for Master System and Arcade, 2 for the Genesis and one entry for SegaCD and 32X.
2) Three titles have "Sonic" in their name, but only for the first one I will accept "Sonic" as the correct answer.
3) Game 11 and 15 are both strategy RPGs in a steampunk setting, released on Saturn.
4) Number 20 is a racing game with airplanes.

Deadline isWednesday the 30th of June, please participate via Video Game Quiz - June - SEGA

Here is the quiz again

Damn, was hoping there'd be a hint for No. 25. It's the only one I can't figure out. Guess I'll submit my answers. :p

I know generally the difficulty is meant to get harder with each game in the sequence but for me the fourth row and the fifth row should be flipped. I made zero progress on the fourth row (outside of the gimme with the hint) and the last row I got three of the five really easily.

Mr_Horizon By the way, the Sonic Shuffle picture isn't the same! To be honest the sharpness of the original image is what threw me off a ton. I assumed it must be arcade for it to be so high res compared to other stuff. But oh well!

You are right, the Sonic Shuffle image was a bit of trickery. I wanted to kick it out and have some Sidescrolling Brawler instead (should have done that instead of two Saturn Steampunk RPGs...) because I couldn't get a screenshot I liked, but then I found this tweet. I loved that bizarre fish so much that I decided to have that as the quiz picture. I promise in the future we will have only regular screengrabs again. :)

July Quiz - Retro Pixel 2021

I know you all are disappointed about the lack of 4K in the new Switch, but come on: do we really need more than the 320x200 of the 90s? ;) This month you may again throw yourself into a pixel soup of zoomed-up characters and try to find the right game name out of twentyfive wildly different titles. Good luck! :)

Deadline is Saturday the 31st of July, participate via Video Game Quiz - July - Retro Pixel

Here's the quiz, have fun:

July Quiz - Clues #1

No question, after the slightly easier Sega Quiz you've got some work to do this time.... It's a tough selection of titles and just 13 players (with modest scores) have turned up after the first week. Then actually, Parsnip doesn't seem to mind. ;) Now there is some help from me, I hope this can serve as motivation. :)

Hints #1:

1) In the games 1 to 4 there is a lot of shooting, but in indie game #5 there is "dancing".
2) Titles 7 and 13 are horizontal autoscrolling shoot'em'ups with arcade versions from the 90s.
3) Title #12 is an 80s home computer game with Gauntlet-like gameplay.
4) Game 6 is a turn-based strategy title with permadeath for computer and Switch.

July Quiz - Clues #2

Ouch, the month has less than ten days left and just 24 people (none from here) are in the game. Looks like I finally actually overdid it with the difficulty!
But see it this way, was it ever easier to land on the upper spots in the high score? Especially as just a single user managed to barely achieve the twenty points threshold.

Here is the second set of clues, I wish for lots of inspiration as well as motivation! :)

1) Game #2 is a well known Indie Metroidvania from the past decade.
2) That figure on picture 11 is not some horizontally scrolling Knight, but rather a very vertical King!
3) The Titles 10 and 16 are both platformers with a soccer/football theme, which they also carry in their names.
4) The games 3, 10, 12, 15, 17 and 18 (plus two from the last row) were released on the Commodore Amiga, number 15 even as an exclusive.

July Quiz - Clues #3

Sixty people in the game, five from here, and zero with a full score? Well, then I'm helping one last time - so that all the fair-weather people can get back to their screens and maybe one particularly creative nerd will guess everything correctly after all. :)

Here is the third and last portion of clues, because this round ends this Saturday:

1) The Penguin Game #9 first appeared as an arcade title in 1982.
2) The #17 has you shoot up some crazy TV show and also first came out as an arcade game.
3) Look at #19! That's rare indeed, a Sega Saturn exclusive.
4) Game #8 is a story-heavy platformer from 2019, you control a robot.
