Game box art challenge?

Yes indeed! The sequel - Dagger of Amon Ra - was posted previously. But I just love the artwork for the first game. It’s one of my favorite Sierra covers.

This game was complicated, much more complicated than the average Sierra title. There were timed events, things you could easily miss, and if you didn’t do a perfect playthrough, you may not see the better ending. So you really had to play this multiple times, have detailed notes and schedules, and figure out the best way to move through the game.

It had some awesome random (terribly so) deaths, though - even more random ones than your usual Sierra game. Almost immediately, you could be killed by taking a shower, falling through the stair railing (for no reason), walking under a chandelier which will randomly fall on you, get cut open by a suit of armor, etc.

Still, I have fond memories of it.

Great cover! And that was a heck of a guess, Left_Empty!

Yes it’s a cover you don’t forget. I was really intrigued by the concept of the game when I was a kid. But it was on PC when I only had a CPC, and in English when I barely knew how to read my own language.
Finally having played with it last year, I was delighted by its atmosphere, but crushed by its very Sierra impenetrable gameplay.

Next one is impossible, good luck!


Some kind of Sonic game. I’m not familiar with them. Let’s try Sonic Adventures.

Going purely by aspect ratio, I reckon that’s a casette box cover. Otherwise, no idea!

I didn’t even know what that game was till today. And for good reason, it was tape only. Wavey took an option and is in the lead!

C-3PO Versus The Blue-Eyed Monkey Cab Drivers?

You fell right into my trap! This isn’t that popular game!

I’m completely stumped. I’ll say Great Giana Sisters 'cause what the fuck.

It all looks kind of familiar. I used to subscribe to a Magazine about Amstrad games, so I’m betting I saw this box in that magazine a bunch of times. That’s why that little gold figure looks familiar, and the car, and the eyeball. But I can’t remember what game it could be.

This will help!

The twist!

Ummm…Peter Rabbit?

Bushytail Manhands: The Carroting

Roadkill III: The Carrot Strikes Back

Oh wait no that’s actually “You want me to do WHAT with this carrot?”

Deluxe edition, I think.
