Let's keep going with the El Dorado puzzle.

Same rules apply.

Given a set of common words, can you figure out which videogame title they cover? All letters in the title must be covered, and letter order must be maintained.

For example:

Given words:

    AFT
    EMOTE
    ERR
    TOSS


=================================

Solution:

    TEAM FORTRESS


because


        A   F     T
      E   M   O   T   E
      E         R   R
    T         O         S S
    -----------------------
    T E A M F O R T R E S S


Videogame titles can be long and wordy. I have removed the spaces in between the words, as well as punctuation, sequel numbers, and Roman numerals. Other than that, I have shown you no mercy. So, if the title is "Destructo Sisters III: Fire Fists of Fury" you will be looking for DESTRUCTOSISTERSFIREFISTSOFFURY.

See if you can solve these:

1.  JURY
    ONE

2.  EARBUD
    EON
    THUD

3.  REFIT
    SEETHE
    TIGER

4.  MOD
    PETRI
    SURE

5.  BOON
    LOBE
    ODOR

6.  HOOT
    TERRA
    TOENAIL
    TOGA

7.  ABOVE
    ALCOVE
    HOOTED
    MALE

8.  ERROR
    MOOD
    SPRAWL
    SUPERIOR

9.  BRAWN
    BROKEN
    RUTTED
    UNTO

10. RARE
    SWIFTER
    TASTE
    WEIGH

11. MOOD
    PARODY
    PRISSY
    SUEDE

12. EONS
    GEL
    LEAFED
    LUGE

13. EARL
    LAID
    MAGES
    TROD

14. FACT
    FANATIC
    FIFTY
    INLAY
    STATS

15. EAGLE
    NODE
    PRONG
    ROAN
    SALE

16. EMAIL
    PARLAY
    PROXY
    SERIAL
    UGLY

  • $\begingroup$ @El-Guest Thank you, I figured it was probably related. $\endgroup$ – hexomino Mar 20 at 14:38
  • $\begingroup$ If numbers are allowed, 15. could be rot13(Crefban 4 Tbyqra) $\endgroup$ – Birjolaxew Mar 20 at 15:46
  • $\begingroup$ @Birjolaxew Thank you, I knew there was such a game series but didn't realise what this one was called. $\endgroup$ – hexomino Mar 20 at 15:50
  • $\begingroup$ @JaapScherphuis — I worked hard to make sure there was no ambiguity. For example, TEAMFORTRESS contains two "E" letters, but the "E" in ERR can only match with the first one. If it were matched with the second one, then the "R" would have nothing to match to. $\endgroup$ – SlowMagic Mar 20 at 15:55
