The Great Retro Quiz! .20: Star Fox


Do you remember playing the Super Nintendo Entertainment System classic Star Fox for the first time? I was (and still am?) obsessed with the game and really thought it had some of the most amazing graphics I had ever seen. From my fuzzy recollection, I think I would yell things like “3D is the future! THE FUTURE!” while playing, usually followed by an abundance of tears streaming down my smiling face.

How good is your memory of this seminal shooter? Do the simple-in-hindsight graphics blur together in your mind, or can you still recall each and every polygonal alien and sprite-based asteroid you encountered? Take this week’s quiz to find out.

Since this is the Great Retro Quiz’s big 2-0, there is a prize this week! Just leave your answers in the comments and whoever gets the most right will win a 2000 point Wii Shop Channel gift card (in the event of a tie, the trusty random hat drawing will make a reappearance -- tie breaker questions stress me out). Check my community blog tomorrow (1/31) for the results.

Perform a quick warm-up barrel roll, hit the jump, and ... good luck!
