Just posted the answers to this round.  Nice job to everyone who participated, and special props to Shinju for nailing 20 of them very early in the challenge!

Looks like we only had three stumpers this time:

8. Frogger (Arcade): A bit of an oldie.  Not too memorable, but the classic title was one of the best arcade games around!

17. Crystal Castles (Arcade): Not as much of a classic tune, but it's one of my favorites from childhood.  The game had a lot of depth for its time.

28. Code Name: Viper (NES): Not one of Capcom's greatest games, but I've always liked it for some reason.  Fun Fact: This game and Rolling Thunder (#27) have similar gameplay mechanics.  I've even read a review for this game that referred to it as "Rolling Thunder 2".

Anyway, thanks everyone for playing!
