Default About the Screen Shot Of The Day

ok I am not usually good at getting these right except the one today was super easy because the name of the game was in the screen shot. Indiana jones and the temple of doom. I do not know if who ever post this pic thought about that before putting it up there. I don't think I ever seen this before on the quess the screen shot of the day but thank you to who ever did that cause I got to feel smart without really trying.

I think most of the screenshots for the games on Abandonia were uploaded before the screenshot of the day feature was introduced, hence they're not any optimized / prepared for it.

Also, the Screenshot of the Day is Randomly selected each day. So in theory the same game could appear a few days in a row, unless they have some script to prevent it. :thumbs:

The system chooses the screenshot to use entirely at random.

so you are unsatisfied with the fact that you guessed it once. on the other hand, you are unsatisfied with the fact that if a screenshot doesn't show a clue, a name or something, you don't know the answer either. i fail to see where the daily quiz game failed.
