Yeah, the bottom left is very similar indeed.

I knew I'd seen that character before... it's Soldier of Fortune on the Speccy.


Next one...

King's Bounty?
If I'm right someone else take my go because I won't be able to do so for a while.
Why retro? Because you never forget your first love.

Didn't we have this one a few pages back?

"Edward Randy: The Cliffhanger, or alternatively known as The Adventures of Edward Randy...", to quote merman.


If it's right, go with this one, otherwise just ignore it...

I believe that is Chaos, but we'll wait on marvin's confirmation on the previous screenshot before we go any further.

Pending marvin's confirmation, I can tell you that you are on the right lines... but I wasn't going to make it that easy this time. :wink:

Not even a bite? Need some clues?

OK...

The similarity with Chaos in look is not coincidental.

It was released on a platform for which Chaos was not.

It was released on a budget label.

Good job it was, otherwise I wouldn't have had a clue. :D

Don't feel bad though - I put up King's Bounty above and only later realised it's been in the thread before. :roll:

Still no help? C'mon, it's one of the Cult Games for goodness sake!

No?

It was Arena for the C64, published on the Cult label. Although not credited at any point, it's a pretty close 1988 remake of Chaos.

OK, this one's dead easy so I want the platform too. :)

(We usually play until someone gets it right, you were a bit premature ending it...)

Anyway, that looks like the PC version of Grand Prix Circuit

I thought it was a bit obscure, and noticed the thread likes to be kept moving. Next time I have one like that, I'll leave it longer.

Quite so. Your go.
