How to Play


  • P1 posts a game screenshot -- Obscure the source if possible & upload to imgur
  • P2 guesses the game correctly & posts the next screenshot (wait for P1 confirmation if not 100% certain)
  • etc.

Rule Clarifications


  • Search engine or other detective work is ok.
  • Any video game is allowed. Unreleased or cancelled games are ok too, but should be relatively well-known.
  • Official game artwork for covers/manuals/promo materials is allowed, just try to make it somewhat iconic.
  • If P2 answers correctly, they may pass their turn and the first person to post a new screenshot becomes the new P1.
  • If P2 has not posted a new screenshot within 12 hours, the first person to post one becomes the new P1.
  • If there is no update from P1 within a 12 hour period, the first person to post a new screenshot becomes the new P1.
  • There are no scoring penalties ever. You may be occasionally reprimanded, however, with a tasteful .gif. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  • the.kuribo has a negative score simply because he is not above such names as POO and ASS

What is a boogaloo?


The Electric Boogaloo is a dance style that became meme-ified to denote crazy sequels, as popularized by the 1984 film Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. While we are not break dance battling here, it is kind of like a screenshot battle and hence, the "screenshot boogaloo".

Ultima 2 is from 1982, so it's not that. But in fairness, I'll allow it, since it's Ultima Worlds of Adventure 2: Martian Dreams (which came out in 1991), which is probably what you meant.

Cannot say for everyone, but it seems to me that there are many people of any age, so someone could still regognize it in any way. As for me, I just loved playing old and MS-DOS games as a child, that's why I can remember something.

Unfortunately, your image format is such that "right-click -> Search Google for Image" turns up plenty of results for the correct game.

One of the more experienced players would have to explain how to prevent that from happening.

What determines if his helmet is glowing or not?

Comment has been collapsed.

As I got it, they refer to three fight phases (100% - 75%, 75% - 50% and lower in terms of HP). The principle is simple: the more you hit him, the bigger, stronger and faster he becomes. During the third phase his helmet is starting to glow.

Might be allowed, but isn't it rather poor form? If you think about it.

People posting obscure non english game pictures is a quick way to ruin things. Luckily some other person guessed it, but what happens when i start posting obscure pics from my local language, or what about any other person from some non english speaking country. You can see where i'm going with this, surely?

Edit: as an example, i could post screenshots from one of these danish dos games: http://danskedosklassikere.blogspot.com and pretty much nobody would have a shot in hell of guessing it.
