18/27. I've got 13 Wink There's a few I vaguely remember, but can't get them right now. This is great fun Smile Music of those old games is still haunting me almost daily for the past 30 years. Not sure if it's a good thing Wink

For 25, you have to enter the short name of the game, the one with a number.

Way too hard for me... I got right only 6. Maybe my memory is going...

If you don't succeed on this test, then maybe this other one is better for you?

Damn, that's hard! The only thing I know is the opcode for RET. Other than that, this quix might as well have been in Chinese!

19/27
Did have to trial/error/swap around some of the titles of our well-beloved software house.. (and made it myself a little bit easier/convenient by having a look at the company's page @ gen.msx to freshen my memory.. ;-)

Some notes/hints from me regarding how to correctly type #10 & #27 (not really spoilers, but you could decide to read over it):

10: write title without article;
27: just the 'short' title, and write as on gen.msx, but without punctuation mark(s).

Capitals don't matter.

Curious what game matches no. 6 (I like the sound).. Quite sure I know it though..

(@msaad: if your hint regarding #25 (page 2) were to be correct (it seems the hint you give there is meant for another game/#number) it reveals too much I reckon.. ;-))

Edit: I just noticed what Meits was pointing out earlier, made me able to correctly guess some more titles.. Tongue Lame! ;-)
(And omg, I just now realize they are all game over themes.. (what the f* does 'ovo' mean anyway..? Wink) Tongue Proper reading / paying attention is an art also... ;-))

Whoops. Sorry about that. I'd go back and edit it, except I don't see an edit option. Though anyone who copies every single game name from that page and try it clearly has too much free time Smile
