Probably because the actual cover looks like this so not as gratuitous.

Is that an original piece of design art or something?

That would explain it. Typically we get something crap instead. Same old same old I guess.

Still, the US CD32X cover was much worse!

The game was pants mate. You just brought back some great memories for me though. I didn't actually have the game but I had the Your Sinclair with Corrine Russell on the cover. Got me through a lot of my adolescent investigations :wink:
I believe she was one of Benny Hill's "Hill's Angels". Useless fact of the day!
