Title: Screenshot challenge.
Post by: zapiy on May 13, 2011, 00:09:44 AM
Just for some fun, user posts a screenshot to a mystery game (any format, any year). The person who identifies it correctly then posts one and so on and so forth.

Ill start us off with this one.

You're too obvious with your Jaguar screenshots... at least I actually enjoyed this game somewhat.

It's Brent Hull Hockey. Hard not to snicker when you're childish and "STICK HANDLING" appears on the screen.

It's actually Brett Hull Hockey but good enough  :P

okay..a sad day for Retro Gaming fans , when a screenshot Challenge has to be forfeited because it's too hard for you guys to guess the game,

the name of the game which was released in 1991 by a company called Sir Rah - Worldwide and used ECS hardware was :
 [size=160]Severed Heads[/size]   :'(

I'll pass this on to the next player now..

So what are the rules for this anyway? Am I supposed to have played this game and know what it is that way?  It's pretty easy to find out what game it is just by copying the image location but I assume that is cheating. Otherwise I don't know if anybody will get this, it's pretty obscure.

If you are correct, then it's your go to submit a game of your choice for the rest of us to guess , this is the way this works, but as trek said you are better hosting it yourself rather from the game image location :)
Title: Re: Screenshot challenge.
Post by: Console Compulsive on September 27, 2012, 19:55:26 PM
You are correct Sir. Well done!

I think the general idea of the game is to try and guess what the game is from the picture and written clues by using general research or prior knowledge of the game.  I would say that copying the image location or using reverse photo searches isn't really in the spirit of the game and anyone that does it should get a smack on the wrist and get sent to the naughty corner to hang their head in shame  :)

Had both Hacker games-2nd whilst technically very clever for the time (setting up video camera footage and nice 'VCR Noise' bar effects on the video) seemed to lack a certain factor the original had.Still a very good game.

Also whilst i had Uplink on PC few years back, i never tried it, it was supposed to be nearest 'modern' equiv.to the hacker games.

Yes!!!  The Atari 2600 Gameline Master Module.

I posted it for a couple of reasons:
1. I found it at a swap meet (I think you U.K. guys call it something else) about 10 years ago for 0.32 pounds. I recently sold it for a good deal more at a local game store to help my quest to purchase every U.S. NES game ever made.

2. AFAIK it's the first console system to offer games "on-line". I know the Intellivision did the Playcable but I believe that was after this.. and that ran through the cable system, not a built in phone modem.

Here's a link

This was one of the most amazing multi-screen games back in 1983, I still to this day still think the Atari 8-bit version was the best , written by the wonderful and (not with us anymore ;)

Whilst i've only ever played the A8 version, it's an all time fav.game of all-time for myself.Bought the game when it appeared on an Atari's Greatest Hits comp, knew nothing about it what so ever, loaded it and was just blown away by it.

It seemed so unlike anything i'd played before, had a great sense of humour, some very clever audio effects (loved the underwater sounds in the fish bowl stage) and was just huge fun to play.

Alley Cat is an amazing game. Been thinking about 'lost' classics that deserve a modern remake and I think an updated version could be successful. Quality game that might have moms sneaking onto their kid's console when no one is around.

TrapZZ's turn.

Wow thanks everyone for the history lesson. I'll have to check it out it sounds super cool. You guys make me feel like a retro game noob here; while I'm an "expert" with my local friends.

This might be easy, but maybe not. On another thread someone mentioned never playing a good baseball game, and while I don't care for watching baseball, this game is a perfect mix of baseball and silliness - I really enjoy it.

Well, they look identical.  The ColecoVision version is a conversion from the MSX since they are essentially the same hardware.  Check it out at Opcode Games (http://http).

IIRC this is a game by Codemasters called Bee or Buzz or something like that. It was on the 8-bit computers but this looks like an NES screenshot so it must have come out on that too.

It is  NES game indeed.  It is called Bee 52 and it was published for the NES by Camerica in 1992.

I know this one has been guessed by people in the chatbox but since no one has posted days later, I will claim it :)

Alien Thing on the Atari ST.

As its kind of cheating here is a relatively easy one:

Space Quest?

No to both of you  :68:
Title: Re: Screenshot challenge.
Post by: Fin on November 01, 2013, 21:49:42 PM
I was in the chatbox and saw someone drop a hint that i think was meant to be cryptic that lead me to

The Quest, either on the c64 or Atari XE.
I am going to go for the Atari XE

I didn't want to reply without others having a guess first :)
Title: Re: Screenshot challenge.
Post by: Greyfox on November 02, 2013, 09:20:12 AM
Well done FinMK, not only did you guess the game but also the machine this screenshot belongs too, as "the quest" also came out on the IBM PC, Apple II and Atari by Penguin Software in 1984

Your go :)
Title: Re: Screenshot challenge.
Post by: Fin on November 02, 2013, 10:38:00 AM
Another easy one for some i suspect

(http://i40.tinypic.com/2uikhw3.jpg)

I always thought this game was broken when i first played it....then i realised the glitchy looking mess in the middle was intentional
