Featuring 93 games from the 16-bit console era, plus achievements and collectables, this quiz game is a tribute to retro games as much as it is a game in its own right.

Guess the game from the music, or buy screenshots and hints to help you. How many can you get without using the walkthrough (or Google)?

I hope this brings back great memories for some of you!

Man that was difficult haha, so far I've only managed 14, and most of those I only knew through the cartoons/films associated with them

Choice game anyway!

Very nostalgic game. Really puts you in the mood to play some of the old classics on the Sega Genesis/ SNES. The facts were pretty good, although I picked out one mistake.

You say that Dr.Robotniks Mean Bean Machine was never released in Japan due to the success of Puyo Puyo, however several years later it was released as part of a compilation on the Mega collection in 2002.

But apart from that, everything else is good. The trivia had me sitting there for a while, good stuff.

So much nostalgia!

Zelda isn't an RPG series. It's an action adventure series. I suppose some of the games have limited RPG elements though. Zelda II is the best example with it's experience and leveling up, but it's known as the black sheep of the Zelda family. And I think it's a stretch to say Secret of Mana is in the style of Zelda. And I wouldn't call Mario RPG an action RPG. It has less action than most RPG's. The combat is turn-based.

Hey, you used music and a screenshot from Donkey Kong Country 2. I typed in Diddys Kong Quest and it didn't work. Donkey Kong Country did work, but one of the hints said I needed to type the full name, and the full name is Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.

It's funny that you call Tetris the most famous game ever. I had a college teacher who said he hadn't heard of Tetris when I was giving a presentation on video game history and assumed everyone knew about it.

Ristar gives away the name in one of the trivia clues.

You say George Clooney played Batman in both of the Schumacher movies, but actually Val Kilmer played Batman in Batman Forever.

In the Pac Attack trivia you spelled Cosmo Gang "Comso Gang" one time.

It would have been nice to see PC games on there too. I'm a big fan of 90's PC games. Warcraft. Worms. Duke Nukem. Major Stryker. Lemmings. Monkey Island. And how come this is all the early 90's? The N64 came out in the 90's as well. And some more great PC games came out in the late 90's. Abe's Oddysee. Sanitarium. And so on. It should be called "Were you a Genesis and SNES Gamer"?
