You are correct, my bad. Sorry for making an unnecessary complaint.

What this feature really does in the process is bring you to many of the games that you might never have had a look at otherwise. I've already found a raft of other interesting games by searching for the correct screenshot, reading a review that piques my interest and then downloading and trying it out.

Therefore this feature is a very good internal advertising platform for Abandonia, but if it remains flawed most people will lose interest and stop using it which would be a bad thing for the website in terms of game exposure.
We feel the same about this, but it's not completely within our reach to solve it. Only the owners of the website (abovomedia.com), not the volunteer staff (us), can fix website bugs. Note: the onwers never read the forums; you can use the "contact us" form under the "navigation" website tab.

Once again I was marked as wrong even though I entered the right game name for today's quiz.

Spoiler for Screenshot Quiz

I am extremely disillusioned.

I encountered the same thing. Relieved to see that I'm not the only one encountering it.

Same here. Wild guesses: either this... thing don't like CAPITAL letters, or long names (Spiderman failed for me too, as I remember).

The name of the game is clearly in the screenshot.
Spoiler for quiz

It seems that it again is a problem with the apostrophe. I tried again using %27 but that trick doesn't work anymore. I also tried substituting Arabic numerals for the Roman numerals but that did not work either. As a side effect of this bug you can reload the page and try again as many times as you want.

Oh! please please please can you ask the webmasters to fix the problem with the screenshot quiz when the game's name has an apostrophe.

Once again it has ruined the quiz as it refuses to accept
Spoiler for the Screenshot Quiz
At the very least please can you reload the quiz.

Thank you very much.

Or, maybe, make a command to exclude titles with the apostrophe, if that takes less work? (Though that would introduce us to less games.)
