Re: Quiz & Dragons (Arcade) - 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ Contest

Reposting some tips:

Characters:
  1. Fighter: He can regain lost health slightly faster than the others, but it's barely an improvement.
  2. Wizard: Yeah he can let you choose the subject of the next quiz, but unless you have vast amounts of knowledge about a specific subject it's not really a help.
  3. Amazon: Not only does she seem to regain health almost as fast as the Fighter, she can also reduce the number of answers to 3 or even 2. She is the one you probably want to use to begin with.
  4. Ninja: He can sometimes cause double damage but it seems to rarely work and it's not worth it.
-Make your way towards inns whenever possible. You can regain up to 4 points of health if you answer his question correctly. If you miss one question he'll keep asking so long as you have health. I think you get less HP recovery the further you go.


-Elf: Answer her question and she will give you something.

  1. Bonus points
  2. Restore health
  3. Scroll to choose subject of next quiz
  4. Sword to reduce answers to 3 or 2
  5. Ring that tells you the correct answer
  6. A shortcut directly to the boss.
  7. Ring to slow the timer
-All of the above except the shortcut can be randomly rewarded after defeating an enemy.

-The game is old, so some answers are now wrong but they were right when the game was made. Be careful.
  • Example: If it asks how many planets there are in the solar system, the answer they want is 9, even though now the answer is 8.

You guys are good at this game. I got a huge amount of luck just getting the score I have. I can't imagine I'll ever beat it so I probably won't be playing this one again. Really cool idea for a quiz game though.

You can pause this game while recording? That gives people a huge advantage since you can just Google answers.

We can detect pauses when we are verifying scores, and if someone has paused the submission won't be accepted.

We don't accept submissions with pauses in a Trivia game period.

You got quite far in the quiz though. This game isnt just about answering correctly, you have to do it quickly as well. If I dont know Ill guess straight away instead of trying to work it out. You can get up to 11500 per question if answered fast enough

Re: Quiz & Dragons (Arcade) - 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ Contest

I found a wrong answer to a question:

If asked about Paul Newman in a hockey movie, the answer they want is Snapshot.

The real answer is Slapshot.

---------- Post added at 11:46 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:49 PM ----------

Also, be careful with sports questions. The correct answer has changed so you have to think who held the records before.

Re: Quiz & Dragons (Arcade) - 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ Contest

The questions that get me the most are usually Academy Awards questions or about who played what character in TV shows I've never even heard of.

Re: Quiz & Dragons (Arcade) - 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ Contest

Yeah, the TV show questions about who played some character in an old TV show you've never heard of and the choices are all actors you've never heard of are the worst.

This games kind of fun, but I'm not convinced it is great for a tournament. There's a bunch of luck needed to get a good score, if you aren't American you're at a disadvantage given the questions are slanted that way, and if English isn't your first language you'll be in trouble. I guess if we were going to include a trivia game, it's not a bad one.

If your struggling with the game take heart that if you play it a while you will start seeing a good number of repeat questions from previous games. If you have a good memory this can make easy questions you can answer quickly for good points.

Thanks! I'm still hoping to improve it too .

One question, is it allowed to use F10 to make the cut scenes between quizes go faster? It gets tedious watching them over and over.

Thanks,
George

Yes, F10 is the same thing (and what I'm used to since it's been standard in MAME for ages).

Thanks!

I don't understand how you guys are so smart. I've played about 50 times or something, and even with half the questions being repeats, I'm lucky to get past the wyvern.

I know a lot of generally useless info. It seems to come in handy here.

Thanks, it was all just a lucky stream of questions I think.

Sometimes I can easily get to 400k points and then sometimes I barely make it out of the first stage.

I guess if we were going to include a trivia game, it's not a bad one.

If your struggling with the game take heart that if you play it a while you will start seeing a good number of repeat questions from previous games. If you have a good memory this can make easy questions you can answer quickly for good points.

It"s a really bad game for me who is french but i'll try to learn all the answers like it could be done in a tv show if i want to make a good score

To be honest Sébastien for the competition I think you'd probably be better off just skipping this game and focusing on the other 16 games. Not only will you have to learn some answers, but the game has many, many questions in its list of random questions, and you have to be answer very quickly to get a good score. I think with English as a second language it will be easier for you to find points for the competition on other games for the time you would have to spend on this game. Fortunately the competition has so many games (17) that even if one game is very difficult, it doesn't matter so much overall.

On the other hand if you like the game and want to still want to play it, go for it and good luck!

Just to offer a second opinion, I think if you play it enough you will learn it. For example, at this point I can cover the question entirely, and still do better than I was in the beginning. Getting first place is going to basically come down to who can learn the most from the game, more knowledgeable people will have a head start, but I still think it's anyone's game.
