Love how Alien Syndrome hails itself as a "multi-load game" Like it's a good thing!

It'd be like an Android or ios game proclaiming "now with money sponging greedy microtransactions, unnecessary IAP & HUGE INTRUSIVE ADVERTS EVERYWHERE!"

Never seen that DuckTales one before - certainly exciting, promising a lot of adventure and so on.

LOVE that one, been looking all over the Internet for it! It's drawn by Paul Sample, who does the Ogri comics and the covers for Tom Sharpe's Wilt books...
