It is indeed Skeleton Krew, but on the MegaDrive.

Your turn :)

I'm guessing that it's a Speccy button-basher/joystick waggler a la Daley Thompson/Olympics/Summer Games type thing...

A clue would be nice, right about now...

That's definitely Cybernoid but I'm not 100% sure on the system... Based off the chunkiness of the colour/graphics I'm saying it is for the Amstrad?

Told you it was easy! It's actually Cybernoid II, but it was on the Amstrad. It's a great game on that system!

Your go!

Looks like a quick port of the C64 graphics. Had it been native on the Amstrad, it would have had better choice of colours and shading and more use of free placement of colours

I don't know if that was the case, but I really like the Amstrad graphics on this game - I think they did a great job!

There's no denying though that the C64 version plays better (slightly smoother) and obviously the music is superior.
