I started, but it was too easy, and stopped at number ten. Some of the wrong answers were from different genres completely!

47. I really should have done better.

One was a stupid error, clicking Pacman instead of Pacland before I'd read it properly.
Plus I had no idea what Dirtfox was, and that really didn't look like the Enduro Racer that I remember. Then again one or two were 50/50 lucky guesses after eliminating games I did know.

And anyway, the malteser-gobbing walrus is from 'Gemini Wing', not 'Gemini Wings'. Stoopid quiz.

I'd not heard of dirtfox either, I can tell you to be VERY careful when typing if searching for it on google at work :lol:

and being top down I went for chequered flag

43, which is a lot better than I thought I'd do.
Suppose you were an idiot; suppose also that you were an XBox One owner. But I repeat myself.

That's what I thought. I also thought it might have been the bike one but that really was Enduro Racer. I just thought Enduro Racer didn't look quite so tacky, but then I've seen more of the monochrome Speccy version than the arcade.
