April Quiz - Sound FX - hints
well, that's a tough one! Average score is below 10, and a dozen points is already enough for the top positions...
Only number two, three and nine seem to be okay, with a solution rate of 75-85% most people know these sounds.
So, let's have some hints for the most difficult ones:
1) The number 25 is the most difficult & obscure one. It's the sound of an unusual weapon in a realtime strategy game of the early 90s. solution rate 5%
2) We got number 18, a well known Metroidvania which has been ported to several systems. This jingle is played when a new heart container is found. solution rate 3%
3) the next is field 19....the sound taken from a highly acclaimed SciFi game has got something to do with air vents. solution rate 3%
4) nobody knows! Number 23 is a real mystery... just like the event where the sound is played. In the beginning of the year, this game released in 2014 made some headlines with a great surprise for its players, where this sound occurs as well. solution rate 0%
general hints: - the oldest game is in the first row, from 1980. - and the newest game is in the last row, from the year 2014. - there are two games from the Mario universe in the quiz, but none of them is a platformer. - Having trouble hearing number 17?

So, did that help? I hope so! So far, there is no participant from this forum.
Snake: Thats a good contribution - ALMOST no mistakes.
Weasel: just counted your points...I don't remember anyone having this big a lead over the rest of the field in any of my quizzes so far. Let's see if it lasts until the end of the month, but excellent job so far!

Also respect to Echelon, MadMoxxi, LouisLoiselle, Neo Rasa und NoGoProGamer - together you're the Top 10.
There was a tank quiz last year too, and now we got another one... it is slightly easier, the last one got some complaints for its difficulty, and you already suffered enough with the soundFX quiz. Naturally, there are lots of action & shooting titles in this quiz.

Thanks to Bumpyroad for participating, he got a +2 points bonus because I forgot to post any hints in this forum.
hello everyone, welcome to the new monthly quiz - this time about sports games. I'm not really into realistic sports gaming that much myself, but I can't deny that they have a lot of fans... so let's see how well you all do!
This time we got... Golf! Boxing! Tennis! Soccer!
At the end of the entry form you can also vote what kind of quiz you'd like to see in the future.
