Re: Screenshot challenge.

Not having even the faintest idea, I'll randomly say TRS-80 and went onto make Flight sims for microsoft! Well, seeing as you got both the format and the "What happened next?" right with your 'random' guess, I don't think you need any more clues. Quick, Google the answer before someone else prosper...

Re: Screenshot challenge.

Wow, I'm finding the new site a little hard to navigate and read. I'll get used to it, I guess.

Here's a screenshot. Bonus points for the platform and naming the series of games that this developer went on to make...

Yep, the forum censored the name. The English name was clearly chosen to generate a little bit of controversy - especially when you see the rankly bizarre "nothing-to-do-with-the-actual-game-inside" box art.

I guess that DavidGP is up again.

Pick up Capcom Classics Collection 2 on the PS2 You'll get Captain Commando , Knights of the Round , The King of Dragons and Magic Sword . The Taito Legends compilations might also be of interest to you for the same reasons - some older scrolling brawlers are included in both. The advantage of buyin...

That looks like censored' In.

Not sure which version, but with a name like that who cares what platform it's on.

EDIT: Ho Ho Ho, how amusing. The censored name of the game is censored' In.

ST screenshots are immediately recognizable. That's "Le Manoir du Comte Frozarda", a French adventure game with lots of naked dead bodies. :? GGGGGGNNNNNNNGGGGgggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! I was going to guess that but I thought it only came out on the CPC, and the screenshot wasn't the CPC version. How fr...

The only thing that a re-make would achieve would be to give it a next-gen makeover and why do we need that? Is it not still playable now? I can see why you'd want a remake of, say, Syndicate or Mid...

There are hundreds of turn-based strategy games available. Because you haven't let us know what format you're looking for it's hard to to make specific suggestions, but I'm going to assume that because you're talking about emulation you want older games. Though I would say that if you want to build ...
