FatNicK’s Amazing Retro Pallete Quiz

Colour Palettes (the number of colours a console has to choose from, rather than the number of colours it can display on screen) were one of the most important tech specs used to market gaming hardware back in the 80s and 90s. Why would want a Megadrive when the SNES would handle 32,000 colours?

In honour of some of this slightly questionable marketing, I thought I’d put together a little quiz. Can you match the right colour palette to the right bit of retro gaming hardware?
