Mini-game selection screen Fly swatter! Can you figure out this picture puzzle?

Musix Zone 2005

This is the central mini-game of Quixotic Mayhem. In order to advance to the next act, thus unlocking more mini-games, you must complete Musix Zone. In this game, you answer multiple-choice questions about who made a certain song (or vice versa). For instance, if a name of an artist appears as the question, select the song made by that artist.

However, not all letters are revealed!  You must buy letters beforehand in order to have them revealed.  Letters that are not revealed are displayed as *'s.  If you don't have enough cash to buy letters, then complete more mini-games.

Musix Zone '05 with only B,J,Z revealed

This picture shows a Musix Zone question with only the letters B, J, and Z revealed.

Successfully completing Musix Zone will allow you to go on to the next act.  Beat all 7 acts to become the Quixotic Mayhem master!

As an alternative to Musix Zone, you may play Metrix Zone instead.  Metrix Zone deals with measurements and quantities.  A number or measurement will appear; select the correct answer from the choices given.
