Name The Old Game Part 2

3,305 posts in this topic

Rules:

 

1.The game must be old to you(i.e. if you're 16 it could be a two year old game!). So no hard and fast rule on this here.

 

2.The aim of the thread is to educate each other on the wonderful history of computer gaming(even recent stuff).

 

3.All gaming platforms are acceptable.

 

4.Clues can be given in a variety of ways, text, pictures, sounds(this may depend on the upload limit for attachments). Try to not make them too obvious, leave yourself room to post a few.

 

5.The Clue giver keeps giving clues until someone correctly identifies the game, then that person has a go at posting their own game clues for the rest of us to guess......and so on

 

6.You can ask questions of the Clue-giver, but they are not obliged to answer...but it can help them shape new clues better for later!

 

7.You can make a few guesses between clues, but dont kick the pants out of it i.e. no repeat spam guessing as that can invalidate your attempt(at Clue givers discretion), and a new game will be found or the Clue giver can nominate someone to take over.

 

8.A score of successful posters is not mandatory, as this can lead to 'guess-the-game fatigue' when it's 'your' turn to start a new thread and update everyones scores. So this is just much more for the fun, but if someone wants to keep scores by all means do(But Dr.Spike will probably win!).

 

9.Use of Google/google-like searches should be declared if it gives you the answer you wouldn't have got otherwise, and will in effect make your guess invalid(so don't do it please). On your honour.

Note: using 'google' is cheating! and may make some people cross. Using 'google' after the correct guess has been found is off course fine and good for your game education :)

 

10. You are not allowed to guess your own game when it is your turn to give the game to be guessed.

 

NOTE: use of the term 'joker' is when someone has won a game(they correctly guessed it) but at the time can't think of a new game to put into play, so they offer it up to the thread. They then can claim a 'joker' play later at any date in place of their game they passed on for that turn. It's kind of like an IOU.

ok i hope that makes it easier for us to know what games have gone before, and we can see which letters need attention + some more love ;)

 

ok i'm still punting so here goes:

 

Clue1: This game was very popular in the 80's and had 'iconic' cover art that probably helped sell more copies. It came out on a bunch of 8bit home computer systems, but sadly not mine at the time(an atari 800).

Clue2: The genre of game was very popular at this time with quite a few titles competing at the same time. This game probably came in about third place in the fight.
