🎵TALKHAUS VGM GUESSING CONTEST #24🎵 Answers/Results

Post by SAJewers »

Hey, thanks for everyone to submitted answers to this! Apparently this was quite tough, as I didn't get many answers. Oops. But hey, maybe you found a new game to add to your backlog out of this.

ANSWERS!
1) Kablooey (SNES/C64/AMI/AST/DOS) - Level Music
Hint: This explosive puzzle game was originally released for European Home computers
This is known outside North America as Bombuzal. It's a weird puzzle game, with even weirder music.

2) Magical Chase (TG16/WIN) - Ending
Hint: The American version of this game is considered a “Holy Grail” for it’s system among collectors
What can I say, this game is good, but far too expensive.

3) Curse Crackers: For Whom the Belle Toils (WIN/NSW) - Ruins Act 1
Hint: This love letter to handheld gaming recently came out on Switch
This is a good game. Quite a bit of praise from reviewers.

4) Pop'n Music GB Disney Tunes (GBC) - Mickey Mouse Club March
Hint: From a Disney-themed instalment of a long-running series
Figured this would at least be an easy point. An easy one, but not too easy
(Davvic gets 1 point, Bean gets 2 points)

5) Midtown Madness 2 (WIN) - UI Music
Hint: The 2nd game in this Trilogy required Windows 95 or better.
Loved playing this as a kid. Not too surprised no one tried to guess this.

6) The Lawnmower Man (SNES/GEN/DMG/SCD) - Main Theme
Hint: This game is based on a Movie.
I figured someone might recognize this from A2MT's B-Side, but alas.

7) Super Benbo Quest Turbo Deluxe (WIN/NSW) - UNDER2
Hint: Anime Girl fights the Infinite Skeleton Army
I'll admit, this is a bit obscure, but as a joke/meme game, it's great.

8) Ed, Edd n Eddy: Jawbreakers! (GBA) - Title
Hint: The cartoon this game is based on ran for six seasons
What can I say, I enjoyed this cartoon as a kid. Never played the game though. Maybe I should
(Davvic and Reecer7 get 2 points)

9) Touhou Juuouen ~ Unfinished Dream of All Living Ghost (WIN) - Pre-Battle Theme
Hint: The latest game in a popular Japanese series
It's the latest Touhou game! And no body guessed it. I figured this might be an easier one. Oh well.

10) Yoiyami Dancers: Twilight Danmaku Dancers (WIN) - A Moody Prankster
Hint: Rhythm! Dancing!
A Touhou Rhythm game that got a decent amount of press in the touhou community when it came out. A few of you were right deducing touhou. It's also a bit of a curveball admittedly since it's a commercial game.
(Lord Ruby and Reecer7 get 1 point)

11) Camp California (TG16) - Theme Song
Hint: The Beach Boys
Did you know in the late 80s/early 90s The Beach Boys attempted a weird mascot revival thing? Very little came out of it, but this game was one.

12) Blossom Tales 2 (WIN/NSW) - Overworld
Hint: It may seem like it, but it’s not Zelda
There was a decent amount of talk about the 1st game in the request thread. As a Zelda-inspired game, it's worth a play.

13)⚠malmen - devotion shuttle⚠
Hint: For Birdie
Intruder #1. Not a bad chiptune/demoscene song.
(Bean gets 5 points)

14) Prayer Warriors: AOFG (WIN) - Stand Against the Devil
Hint: Alex Steacy played this, leading to one of the best Stream Series on Twitch
Honestly surprised people got this. Seriously though, LoadingReadyRun's Watch+Play series is great entertainment.
(Bean and Reecer7 get 2 points

15) New Super Mario Bros. (NDS) - The Plains
Hint: You might not’ve heard this song unless you played with friends
NSMBDS is well-known, but this only plays in multiplayer mode.
(Bean bets 2 points, Lord Ruby and Reecer7 get 1 point)

16)🎶 Yoshi's Island (SNES) - Title Screen🎶
Hint: This was a pack-in-game in it’s lifetime
The 1st Remix. This was used in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, a hack of NSMB Wii
(Davvic and Lord Ruby get 2 points. Davvic, Lord Ruby, and Bean get a bonus point)

17) FX-Unit Yuki: The Henshin Engine (TG16/GEN/DC) - Primeval BUMP-A-RUMP
Hint: This love letter to 🐝 released on retro systems a few years back; the developer plans to eventually launch on switch too.
Not surprised no one got this. It's a love letter to Hudson Soft that so far has only been released on retro consoles. They have announced though it will eventually come to Switch and Steam though.

18) ⚠Matt Wilbur - It Was A Dark & Stormy Night (Mushroom Kingdom Remix)⚠
Hint: Hope Still Flies.
Intruder #2, aka the "Remix Intruder". Had I given a bonus point for guessing a remix on this, Lord Ruby and Reecer would've picked up points here.

19) kokoro clover season 1 (WIN/NSW) - distorted fighters
Hint: This is technically from a Video Game, even though it’s more of a interactive anime
I picked quite a few indie games, and this is one. It's a bit of an oddball though.

20) Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (NDS) - An Empty Tome
Hint: This song later featured in Smash Bros Ultimate
Figured Castlevania might more on the easy side.
(Bean gets 4 points)

21) Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom (WIN/PS4/PS5/XBO/NSW) - Haunted Manor
Hint: This song was composed by someone well known for a series by Konami
That someone is Michiru Yamane, who composed most of the Castlevania games.

22) Graze Counter GM (WIN/NSW/PS4/PS5/XBO/XBX) - Graze Counter
Hint: The Final Boss to a Bullet Hell
Another tough indie game selection. A recommend if you like shooters.

23) Chuck Rock (AMI/GEN/SNES/C64/SMS//SCD/GG/AST/CD32) - Main Theme
Hint: One could argue this could’ve been a Not-Sonic
What a weird concept for a mascot platformer. Then again, Bonk and Joe & Mac both existed by this time so 🤷‍♂️.

24) 🎶Castlevania Dracula X(PECD/SNES) - Bloodlines🎶
Hint: This song should not be confused with another game
Bloodlines from Castlevania. Not Castlevania Bloodlines.
(Bean gets 2 points. Bean and Lord Ruby get a bonus point)

25) Air Zonk (TG16) - Boss
Hint: From a spinoff of a mascot platformer
A pretty cool spinoff of the Bonk series, I'll be curious to see raocow's playthrough if he continues All The Bonks.

26) River City Ransom Underground (WIN) - Guri Guri
Hint: The music in the game had to be replaced after release for legal reasons.
Picked this game last time, but since then, the music was replaced wholesale due to a legal dispute. The replacement music is still good though.

27) Pictionary: The Game of Video Quick Draw (NES) - Title Screen
Hint: “TIM, IT WAS JUST <game>” - YT comment
https://youtu.be/AKLtx8bIBbw?t=2729
(Reecer 7 gets 4 points)

28) Jet Gunner (WIN) - City
Hint: raocow played this before
I was surprised last time no one got a game raocow did an lp of, and I'm somewhat surprised again,

29) The Ninja Warriors (ARC/CPC/AMI/ZXSTG16/AST/C64/SCD) - Daddy Mulk
Hint: An ultrawide monitor might be good for emulating this
This game used a weird setup to give this super long game screen.

30) Buck Bumble (N64) - Title
Hint: A catchy title song for a 3D cult classic
I'll be honest, I only heard about this game thanks to a patreon royal court. Bummed it didn't win.
(Bean and Reecer7 get 2 points)

31) Wayne's World (GEN/SNES) - Donut Shop
Hint: “Is this supposed to be Foxy Lady? “ - AVGN
I would've used the SNES version, but it's one of the few games without a rip. It's not a good game.

32) 🎶Touhou Chireiden ~ Subterranean Animism (WIN) - Corpse Voyage ~ Be of Good Cheer!🎶
Hint: 🐈🔥
An NES remix of Rin's Theme from Touhou 11. I think it at one point it was being used in an A2XT2 level before being replaced.

33) Super Marisa Land (WIN) - Overworld
Hint: I think it’s clear the devs were inspired by Super Mario Bros
This remix appeared from A2MT. Figured some might get it.
(Davvic gets 4 points. Davvic and Reecer7 get a bonus point)

34) Sonic Pinball Party (GBA) - Story Mode
Hint: Not the raocow lp that never ends, but close enough?
Again, I figured this would be an easy one being a sonic game raocow did an lp of.
(Bean gets 4 points)

35) Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel (GEN/SNES) - Rapids (Stage 1)/Factory (Stage 3)
Hint: Technically a spinoff game to a Not-Sonic
Never played this yet, but I hear it's better than the 2 Aero The Acrobat games it's a spinoff of.

36) Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 (PS3/360) - His World (Theme of Sonic The Hedgehog)
Hint: Sung by Matty and Ali
This was a gimme.
(Davvic, Lord Ruby, Bean, and Reecer7 get 2 points)

37) 🎶Shovel Knight (WIN/3DS/WIIU/PS4/PSV/PS3/XBO/NSW) - An Underlying Problem🎶
Hint: From an acclaimed Indie Title
The world needs more Turbografx-16 remixes of NES music.
(Bean and Reecer7 get 2 points, Reecer7 gets a bonus point)

38) Keith Courage in Alpha Zones (TG16) - Town 2
Hint: This is from a pack-in game; it was only ever available as a pack-in game
Yep. Only available in North America as the pack-in game for the TG-16; it never got a standalone release.

39) The Flintstones - King Rock Treasure Island (DMG) - Bedrock
Hint: This game was released one year before the Movie
Apparently people are more familiar with the NES games than the Game Boy Games.
(Davvic and Bean get 1 point)

40) EVE Burst Error (PC-88/WIN/SAT) - Tristan
Hint: Originally an adult title released on a Japanese Computer, it was remade and released on Switch
Another difficult one. It's an adult Visual Novel for NEC's PC-88 that got toned down when re-released.

41) FIFA 97: Gold Edition (SNES/GEN) - Game Options 1
Hint: From the 4th instalment of this sports franchise.
A SNES Sports game that I own. Not much to write home about.

42) Hany on the Road (PCE) - Switzerland
Hint: Weird oddball title released only in Japan, possibly because the system it released on wasn’t popular in North America.
Another oddball title, and another tough one, as it never came out in North America.

43) Victory Run (TG16) - Title
Hint: Not Outrun, but an interesting attempt
Clearly an Outrun clone by Hudson Soft. Its not bad, but not great either.

44) Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams (NGP/ARC/TGCD/X68/PS1) - Stage 1
Hint: I bet if I used the Arcade version of the song one might better recognize it
Bit of a curveball as I used the Neo Geo Pocket Colour version of the song, I'll admit.

45) Mario Roulette (ARC) - Playing Theme
Hint: Yes it’s what you think it is; no, it was not made by nintendo
This was admittedly evil. This officially-licensed commercial slot machine was only dumped and emulated in MAME about 3 years ago.
(Davvic, Lord Ruby, and Bean get 1 point)

46) The Final Station (WIN/XBO/PS4/NSW) - End Of The Road
Hint: A neat indie game involving driving a train
Another very good indie game that deserved more love.

47) Yoshi's Crafted World (NSW) - Main Theme
Hint: For all you crafters out there.
Figured this might an easy one.
(Davvic and Bean get 2 points. Lord Ruby gets 1 point)

48) Oniken (WIN/NSW/XBO) - Brain Palace
Hint: This homage to 8bit games was added to Steam via Greenlight
I swear this was suggested to raocow at one point years ago. Never could beat the final level.

49) Tokyo Xtreme Racer Zero (PS2) - Hi Gear
Hint: This game is part of a series inspired by Tokyo streetracing
It's a racing game for the PS2, not much more to say.

50) Kaze no Densetsu Xanadu II (PECD) - One's Last Moment
Hint: This RPG only came out in Japan; a Fan Translation in the works at one point had to put out a call for Voice Actors
It's a Falcom RPG, but it never came out in North America. A Shame, since I hear it's one of their better ones from the 90s.

51) 🎶Super Double Dragon (SNES) - Mission 4🎶
Hint: Unlike previous games, this was not an Arcade title
This remix has quite a lot of view on Youtube, so I figured this might be on the more easier side.
(Bean gets 4 points. Bean gets a bonus point)

52) 🎶Touhou Koumakyou ~ the Embodiment of Scarlet Devil (WIN) - UN Owen was her?🎶
Hint: Probably one of the more popular songs in this series known for it’s music
" ... woah, how is this so unknown. " - raocow
(Davvic and Lord Ruby get 2 points. Davvic and Lord Ruby get a bonus point)

53) 🎶Soldier Blade (TG16) - Operation 6🎶
Hint: A Shooter, made for a console known for them.
Soldier Blade is a very good shooter, for those who enjoy those.

54) Virtual Pool (WIN/DOS/PS1) - Black Ball
Hint: The 1st game in a series prioritizing accuracy; later instalments included a money-back guarantee
Honestly surprised someone got this one. Good Job.
(Bean gets 4 points)

55) Freedom Planet 2 (WIN/XBO/PS4/PS5/NSW/XBX) - Magma Starscape
Hint: The sequel to an indie hit inspired by Sonic
I did Freedom Planet last time, so here's the sequel.

56) 🎶The Great Giana Sisters (AMI/AST/CPC/MSX2/C64) - The Great Giana Sisters🎶
Hint: This game was pulled from release after pressure from Nintendo
Piano renditions of this theme just work somehow.
(Lord Ruby gets 4 points. Lord Ruby Gets a bonus point)

57) Championship Pool (SNES/GEN/NES/DMG) - 8 Ball Blues
Hint: Billiard Congress of America officially endorsed this
Another pool game I'm kinda surprised someone got.
(Davvic gets 4 points)

58) Megaman X (DOS/SNES/IOS) - Storm Eagle
Hint: “OK! Time to answer the burning question on everyone’s mind: What does the music soundlike, in Tandy 3-voice Mode? o_o;” -youtube video
Another evil curveball. Last time I did an ugly PC Speaker version of The Monkey Island Theme, this time you get an Ugly Tandy version of Storm Eagle, which technically isn't possible without some hacking and DOSBox.
(Bean and Reecer7 get 2 points)

59) John Madden Football (GEN) - Title Theme
Hint: Football!
The 1st Madden game on Genesis, what can I say.
(Bean gets 4 points)

60) Krusty's Super Fun House (GEN/NES/SNES/SMS/DOS/GG/DMG/AMI) - Area 1
Hint: Hey, hey, can you kids help me with a rat problem?
This started out as a game called Rat Trap. Then Acclaim agreed to publish console versions of it, and slapped the Simpsons on it.
STANDINGS!
Lord Ruby - 18 Points
Reecer7 - 20 Points
Davvic 23 Points (24-1 for a 4th hint)
Bean - 57 points
Congratulations to our winner and everyone who entered!

i feel like the only ones i'd get are:
6, 8, 24, 29, 30 (this one was a meme due to late 00s screwattack), 32, 33, 34, 36
38, 44 would also unlock core memories but i'd be unable to spot em

52 does not sound like un owen im sorry (that's a good thing, un owen and necrofantasia are overrated but just for me i mean. i dont shame people who like em)
58 is black label mode

i also have yet to play kablooey, magical chase, benbo quest, 2hu 19, order of ecclesia, monster boy (lion warrior my belovedt), chuck rock, shovel knight, eve burst error, hany on the road, cotton, yoshi's crafted butt, legend of xanadu 1, super dub drag, soldier blade, freedom planet 2, and giana sisters.

and i haven't played eene jawbreakers, air zonk and keith courage in ages and i also saw footage of kokoro clover once but it escaped my mind entirely. i really dont wanna play most simpsons games either (simpsons game and the konami beat 'em up are perfectly cromulent i feel, i had the former on psp)

i don't know how many points that would net me but probably not many

thyme (haha thyme) to get started working on my second vgm; contest.

4) Pop'n Music Disney Tunes (GB)
13 Intruder #1!
14) Prayer Warriors
15) New Super Mario Bros. (DS)
16) REMIX - Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
19) Shantae?
20) Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
21) Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom
24) REMIX - Castlevania: Rondo of Blood
30) Buck Bumble
34) Sonic Pinball Party
36) Sonic the Hedgehog '06
37) Shovel Knight: King of Cards
39) REMIX - The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy?
45) REMIX - Super Mario World
47) Yoshi's Crafted World (Still UGH.)
51) REMIX - Super Double Dragon
52) Intruder #2!
54) Virtual Pool
58) REMIX - Mega Man X
59) John Madden Football (Genesis/Mega Drive)
If you put lyrics in a song, I will do my best to find them. Took a good while to get the Prayer Warriors one though... Jesus. But more importantly, it finally happened. I got an Intruder pick! Only one I'm bummed about not getting would be Freedom Planet 2, but then I realize I haven't played it yet since we're waiting for a console version to release here. Yep. On the other hand, I'm still irrationally annoyed to hear that Yoshi Crafted World song... such a huge downgrade from Woolly World's OST.

Anyhoo, thanks for running it. Hope more people take part in this next time as you ran a smooth ship here. Now give me my nonexistent trophy, y'all.

Considering participation wasn't too high this time around, I'm considering moving the time frame of the next VGM contest to be a bit sooner than usual. Anyone think it's a good idea or nah?

If we go by the usual time frame, then the next contest will be held at Mar-May and will be hosted by KobaBeach.

And as always, if you wish to join the hosting queue, then feel free to shoot me a PM here or a DM on the Discord. There will be a reset soon, so peeps who have already hosted prior are free to re-host another VGM contest once the reset occurs.

I should be free around then, I /am/ a shut-in. My birthday is in March (macro march! it comes in like a fifty foot lion!), so it'd be extra fitting to start there, but January may be more convenient for people due to it being as soon as possible.
