Thrasher: Skate & Destroy.

I thought I was the only person who actually enjoyed it. :lol: Played it a load when I used to work in an indie store back in the day. It's like a more sensible, considered approach to a skateboarding game. Definitely not as polished as the THPS games but I always liked giving it a spin.

Battle Beast for Windows 95. Amazing SVGA cartoon graphics for the time but shallow gameplay. :wink:

That's Battle Bugs, from the goode olde days of DOS :)
I fancy a nice hot cup of tea. Splash of milk. No sugar.

^Correct, it was a off-beat real time strategy game with insects. :wink:

Carry on.

Looks like a Gameboy game...

Is it a Turok game?

It is a Gameboy game, but not a Turok game.

It was made quite late in the Gameboy's life and is quite hard to get hold of these days... but still quite a well known title.

OK... clue time.

So we've established that it's a Gameboy game released mid to late 1990s - it's also a film licence and this particular version is unique to the system...

I'm having to cheat slightly and look at some of the bigger mid-late 90's films on google :lol:

Through process of elimination (as many titles don't fit the image type, although you could argue that Titanic would) is it Jurassic Park?

Close enough... it was The Lost World: Jurassic Park released in December 1997!

Not to be confused with Jurassic Park (1993) or Jurassic Park 2: The Chaos Continues (1994)
