The Great Retro Quiz! .18: ActRaiser

1:33 PM on 01.16.2008 // Chad Concelmo

I think it is about time to test your (so far very impressive) retro knowledge on something a little less “mainstream” than Super Mario Bros. or The Legend of Zelda. After considering many different games, I decided the awesome ActRaiser for the Super Nintendo was the perfect candidate. The game has a cult following, but is random enough to offer a pretty significant trivia challenge (even to the people that have played it).

It also helps that I absolutely adore the game. So if you do really well on this quiz you are officially the coolest person that ever lived (and my new best friend).

Just leave your answers in the comments and whoever gets the most right will win. Win what, you ask? Did you not read what I just wrote? Best friends. Forever. Is that not enough? You can check my community blog tomorrow (1/17) for the correct answers and to see how you did.

Don’t everyone hit the jump at once! Good luck!
