I have found 31 with a few guesses. I'd be surprised if I get in the top 3 though...

Oh, well. Guess there's no hope for me, since I'm practically very young. Although I take great joy in playing older games, this does not help me particullarly. Thus , in conclusion I will not send my guess list cause I guessed 3-4 songs and there are absolutely no "maybes".
I'd like to congratulate Kosta for this chalenge.

I'm having the same problem. I think I'm a bit too young to have really played most the games these songs are from. It's a pretty cool contest though.

OK, I tallied up the votes, and here are the results, along with some interesting stats

First of all, I would like to thank everyone who participated and everyone else who played along! I was really pleasantly surprised with the knowledge (and scouting abilities) of everyone

Now, here are the correct answers:

01. doom 2 - hangar
02. golden axe - wilderness
03. one must fall 2097 - menu
04. xenon 2 - megablast
05. lemmings - main theme
06. diablo - town
07. wacky wheels - main menu
08. duke nukem 3d - grabag (local)
09. pirates - main theme
10. x-com terror from the deep - geoscape 6
11. transport tycoon - track 14
12. dune 2 - ambient 6
(REMOVED) 13. command & conquer - warfare
14. homeworld - mission 14
15. colonization - shady grove
16. terminal velocity - sex
17. little big adventure - theme
18. Day of the Tentacle
19. settlers 2 gold - track 15
20. mdk - prologue
21. legend of kyrandia - timber
22. dune - spice opera
23. reunion - steal the sky 2
24. battle isle 2 - track 1
25. tyrian - track 01
(REMOVED) 26. loom - bobbin threadbare
27. icewind dale - main theme
28. quake 2 - quad machine.mp3 (local)
29. ultima 6 - theme
30. indiana jones and the fate of atlantis - car chase
31. fury of the furries - intro
32. utopia - main tune
33. turrican - techno dungeon
34. flashback - options screen
35. james pond 2 - operation robocod
36. star control 2 - hyperspace (local)
37. jazz jackrabbit 2 - menu
38. earthworm jim
39. hocus pocus (tax5 remix)
40. the secret of monkey island - organ prelude
41. space quest 3 - introduction
42. Supaplex

As far as submissions go, there was a total of 20, and here are the results, sorted in descending order by the number of correctly guessed songs (the winners are marked in red):

the_fifth_horseman 34
thexder 34
------------------------
Nurple 33
olemars 30
eagle of fire 30
davesade 27
marko_river 27
Nightmare 25
rocky 24
a6n0rmal 22
Morrin 16
fjj 13
Shingouki 11
TeaBag 9
Mister.D 9
Dig 9
Jackolantern 6
Lord Vilecore 4
Hewy Lee 3
Kain Doomed 2


As you can see it was a close call! Nurple, don't loose your hopes, there will be more music competitions in the future

I have also compiled a list of all games along with the total number of correct guesses, sorted from the (apparently) easiest, towards hardest ones:

01. doom - hangar 17
06. diablo - town 17
02. golden axe - wilderness 16
08. duke nukem 3d - grabag 15
03. one must fall 2097 - menu 13
18. Day of the Tentacle - intro 13
19. settlers 2 gold - track 15 13
37. jazz jackrabbit 2 - menu 13
41. space quest 3 - introduction 13
11. transport tycoon - track 14 12
15. colonization - shady grove 12
16. terminal velocity 12
05. lemmings - main theme 11
07. wacky wheels - main menu 11
10. x-com terror from the deep - geoscape 6 11
12. dune 2 - ambient 6, 22. dune - spice opera, counts as 1 11
17. little big adventure - theme 11
28. quake 2 - quad machine 11
30. indiana jones and the fate of atlantis - car chase 10
04. xenon 2 - megablast 9
21. legend of kyrandia - timber 9
25. tyrian - track 01 9
09. pirates - main theme 8
14. homeworld - mission 14 8
24. battle isle 2 - track 1 8
31. fury of the furries - intro 8
40. the secret of monkey island - organ prelude 8
32. utopia - main tune 7
35. james pond 2 - operation robocod 7
23. reunion - steal the sky 2 6
29. ultima 6 - theme 6
36. star control 2 - hyperspace 6
38. earthworm jim 6
42. Supaplex 6
27. icewind dale - main theme 5
20. mdk - prologue 4
34. flashback - options screen 3
33. turrican - techno dungeon (lvl2) 2
39. hocus pocus (tax5 remix) 1

Hocus Pocus, Turrican and Flashback seem to have presented the biggest challenge to everyone. I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Jackolantern who was the only one that got Hocus Pocus right, as well as Davesade and Mister.D for getting Turrican right! Well done!

I will be in touch with the winners shortly regarding addresses and other details! I'll try to organise another competition ASAP, and until then, sit tight!

Here is the list of my answers:

Quote:
01 - Doom
02 - Golden Axe
03 - One Must Fall 2097
05 - Lemmings
06 - Diablo
07 - Whacky Wheels
08 - Duke Nukem 3D
09 - Pirates
10 - Xcom2 (Terror from the Deep)
11 - Transport Tycoon
12 - Dune
14 - Homeworld
15 - Colonization
16 - Terminal Velocity
17 - Little Big Adventure
19 - The Settlers
21 - Legend of Kyrandia
22 - Dune
23 - Reunion
24 - Battle Isle 2
25 - Tyrian 2000
27 - Icewind Dale
28 - Quake 2

The vast majority of the 9 tunes I missed were either protected, adventure games or games I never played. At least I am proud to say that I really went to the limit of my ressources and knowledge and could hardly have done better.

Default Yes!!!

:nuts::nuts:

Kosta, thanks for the competition, it was indeed a very interesting one... On the other hand, you even got me to check the songs in Daikatana, and this is just not right...

Now I better go to sleep -- after the amount of time I spent trying to identify these tunes, if I do not leave the computer now, my wife will divorce me.

Cheers!

P.S.: And, nevertheless, I cannot believe I missed "Pirates!" and "Secret of Monkey Island"...

Damn... That was a tight race... But...
Think you want to recheck my list Kosta? Because I did, and I had 34 as well. Every game was right, but I had a few ones where the number was wrong, but you said the number didn't matter. (Space Quest 1 or 2 are both right for example).

Anyway, fun competition. Looking forward to the next one
