Game box art challenge?

I think the rules are the same here as the Frame Game–one guess per person per image.

Brutal Legend?

I never realized we had rules. This changes everything.

No correct guesses yet. Here’s more.

Man, I totally thought that was Diablo 2.

How many liches does it take to fix a skull bulb?

Dragon Warrior II

Some more clues.

I don’t know, but I feel bad for that mouse.

Let’s show some more then.

I am not familiar with this box art. Although it looks like the sort of Album cover Mastodon would have had if they were an 80s band.

Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves?

You guys are on the right track. Well, Nightgaunt anyway.

Me too. I was thinking maybe it was a PSP game, but then I have no idea what it is. Also, it feels like it’s from that early Apple II/DOS era where cover art was trying to compensate for simple graphics in-game.

Ok, last one before the reveal. People have to get it now. I know several people here have played this game. I can’t be the only one.

It’s the japanese version of cover art for a Western game a lot of you have played.

Well then I’ll guess Prince of Persia

Edit: Although I feel the clue you just gave maybe made it too clear!

Hahah. Well done.

Here was the North American box art:
