|熱闘! 激闘! クイズ島!!
|Single player, Multiplayer
Nettou! Gekitou! Quiztou!! (熱闘! 激闘! クイズ島!!, Eng.: Net-tō! Geki-tō! Quiz-tō!!), is a quiz arcade game which was released by Namco in 1993 only in Japan; it runs on the company's NA-1 hardware and is the tenth title from them which allows scores that do not end in "0". It is also the second game from the company in which a knowledge of all three Japanese writing systems (Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji) is essential, if you wish to succeed with it (the first was Bakuretsu Quiz Ma-Q Dai-Bōken, which had been released in the previous year - but it only allows two players to play simultaneously).
The players must help four characters Kufū (工夫), Hana No Sei (花の精), Koseibutsugakusha (古生物学者) and Nōfu (農夫) regain control of an island by answering multiple-choice questions (much like what Scott and Stanley had to do to regain the crown's lost jewels for "Bakuretsu Quiz"); each of the characters starts out in one of the four corners of the island and conquers a square once they've cleared its stage. They can then decide which square they want to move to next, by pressing one of the Answer Buttons - and if one character moves onto another one's conquered square it will invoke a special type of quiz, in which the conquered square's owner will set the trespasser eight questions (and there will be a keyword that is common to all eight answers). If the trespasser answers all eight questions correctly, he (or she, in the case of Hana No Sei) will take possession of the square; but if they should get one wrong, the owner shall send the trespasser back to their last conquered square.
