Game box art challenge?


#4186

It is Might & Magic: Book One!

Quite a beautiful box for that era, I think. I mean, it’s just text on top of the game’s in-box map. But the map was so evocative. Looking at that map while navigating through strict gridded squares really transformed the in-game world into something that felt more real than it had any right to.

I’m kicking myself – I was just admiring this box art a few days ago as I was reading a blog about blobbers (at the Digital Antiquarian, great blog if you’ve not read it) and it sent me down the M&M rabbit hole. Beautiful box art!

The full map was better, however, as it had that “fourth elements” thing going on.

Shame the map didn’t allude to the awful high-tech part hidden in that mountain on the top right!
Now, which game featured this kaboom?


#4189

First thought was Serious Sam then a Donkey Kong variation.


#4190

I forgot to put the original files in a shred place, so this second image has re-created the cutout off the first :)

#4192

You and your damn Brit box arts!


#4193

Yes, but which Brit box art?!

(Also: It was the same in every other country, so that’s no excuse!)

Plus at least people might know Brit box arts, rather than wacky Japanese ones :P


#4194

Is it too difficult? Is everyone asleep? ;’(


#4195

Spy vs Spy 3?


#4196

One of the Lemmings? Errrrr, the first one?


#4197

Oooh, you’ve definitely got it.


#4198

Let’s go!

I always used to think he was doing an Egyptian dance.
But now that I look properly I guess he’s shading his eyes? Or is stressed and is pinching his nose?


#4199

Those bushes through me through a loop at first, I kept thinking the game was Congo Bongo or Jungle Hunt or whatnot. Wasn’t until seeing the very top of the distinctive green and yellow lettering that it finally clicked. One of the very first R* games. =)

Ok, first clue:


#4200

Centipede? On some ancient 8bit? :)


#4201

Nope, but you are right about 8-bit! This one is likely going to be really hard, but I chose it because it is a game that my brother and I played a ton growing up…


#4202

Micro machines?


#4203

Cannon Fodder?


#4204

Nope and nope. Big chunk to reveal now…


#4205

super cobra? (Featuring worms)
