Name Those Pixels: Challenge #3

December 8th, 2006 by mgroves

Pixel Challenge #3 - 1Welcome back to Name Those Pixels. As with every Friday, it’s time for the next challenge. This time, I’ve selected three different samples from three different systems for you to guess. These ones will be a littler easier, but also a little different. See how many you can name. The first one is on the right, and the other two are down below. As always, post your guesses in the comments section of this entry, and don’t be bashful. Good luck!

Hint: At least one of them is a U.S. NES title.

Last Week’s Answer

Time’s up for last week’s Name Those Pixels (Challenge #2). This one was really hard, so no one got the answer. But I have a feeling that most of you have played this game for one system or another, and you’ll probably be kicking yourself once you see what it is. Here is the full screen shot:

  1. Bruce Anderson Says:

    I know the first two. #1 is Barnstorming on the 2600. #2 is a Megaman game, though I couldn’t tell you exactly which one. As for #3…haven’t a clue.

  2. Brian Beck Says:

    #2 is from Mega Man 3, specifically Magnet Man’s stage.

    #3 is still eluding me, but I’m confident I’ll remember it.

  3. jp Says:

    I’m guessing Barnstorming (2600), Mega Man 3 (NES) and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (NES)

  4. extrarice Says:

    #1 is Barnstorming, as Bruce said.
    #2 is Mega Man 3 on the NES.

    I have no idea what #3 is…

  5. John H. Says:

    Barnstormer (for the Atari 2600!)
    Mega Man something (I s’pose 3 as the others have said).

    The third, however, is from (the impossibly wonderful) Earthbound for SNES. The font gives it away.

  6. Brian Beck Says:

    Earthbound! Of course! I’m really kicking myself for not realizing that sooner.

  7. logan Says:

    i know that number 2 is megaman it is one of the early versions probably 1-3 but the others i dont know

  8. KitsuneDarkStalker Says:

    All I know is #3 is Earthbound, #2 is Megaman 2, and #1 is Barnstormer for the Atari XE.

  9. barbie fu Says:

    you sure #3 is’nt from Double Dragon Arcade?

  10. KitsuneDarkStalker Says:

    Absolutely Barbie Fu. The sprites in DD Arcade are a bit bigger, and would NEVER, NEVER use that color scheme.

  11. Amauriel Says:

    Yeah, I got the hat trick, as the description said…

    1. Definitely Barnstorming.
    2. Mega Man 3
    3. Earthbound (or Mother 2)…the hotel in Onett for sure for sure.

  12. RedWolf Says:

    #1 is definitely from Resident Evil: Code Veronica… I’d recognize those graphics anywhere!

  13. brian Says:

    barnstormer? I played it a few times.

  14. RedWolf Says:

    I almost read that as “Brainstormer,” even though I know exactly what you’re talking about. I wonder what Brainstormer would play like. 🙂

  15. Dylan Says:

    The only one I guessed correctly was Mega Man. I never played Barnstormer or Earthbound.

  16. josh curry Says:

    mega man 3 and earthbound zero!
