There’s a lot of love for retro gaming here at El33tonline so we’ve decided to turn our Guess the Game series into a semiweekly feature, with Pieter’s contributions going up towards the end of each week and mine going up every Tuesday.

Today I’ve got a selection of five titles for you, including a few blasts from the past along with more recent additions to gaming’s rich catalogue.

Here they are:

Game 1:

This was an addictive title that I received for Christmas one year. Planes, motorcycles and blimps all came together to create a surprisingly compelling experience.

Game 2:

This was one of the first adventure games I ever played and it wasn’t long before I was searching the internet for a walkthrough! I recall that this title had a great soundtrack, especially considering the crude audio hardware it was designed for.

Game 3:

This game blew me away with its incredible pre-rendered backgrounds and absorbing gameplay. There haven’t been many titles released since that feature such a high level of environmental detail.

Game 4:

Another pre-rendered game that had a lot of buzz surrounding it at the time. Screenshots alone sold many of my friends on this title.

Game 5:

This was a game I desperately wanted to play but it was almost impossible to find in South Africa at the time. Yet another title that was celebrated for its dynamic, highly detailed pre-rendered backgrounds.

Can you guess all the games? Have you played any of them? Happy gaming and good luck.
