I have often thought about making a test like this, except it should play a piece of music, and you should guess the game-title from that instead of a screen shot.  :)

I got 25/30.
I got mixed up with f16 combat pilot and fighter bomber... sigh...
Would've got 27/30 if I hadn't done that.
Ah well, never mind!

19/30... And I thought I has a good knowledge of CPC games! But there are a lot of obscure games in there... Interesting though!

I scored 20/30, though I must confess, I guess quite a few of those games by just looking at the screenshots and using process of elimination (ruling out games I knew on the selection list), in actual fact the number of games I recognised was 10.

* I use Firmware in my Assembly code :P

A perfect 30/30 here. :D

The quiz, erm, 'borrows' most, if not all, of the screenshots from CPC Game Reviews! :laugh:

My knowledge of game music isn't as good as my recognition of screenshots. I scored 14.

Spoiler: show
One of the answers in the video is wrong (Game Over instead of Game Over II/Phantis).

9 of 35...


But I actually found an error. The music labelled as Game Over is actually Phantis (aka Game Over II in the UK).  :P

That was great.
This sort of thing is really fun.

I got 6 right, but it should have been closer to maybe 10, as I attributed a couple of songs to other games in the same genre!
I also recognised a number of tunes, but couldn't place them.
