The worst box art ever
 
Nothing ground breaking folks, but worth a little read, if only just to raise a smile at how poor that baseball game's cover is!

To this day I've never realised why the kid on the Ruff'n'Tumble box looked like Freddie Starr.

Damn, what they've done with Bub & Bob in this Bubble Bobble NDS game? That's real horror. :lol

i like bad art from the eighties, as it qualifies perfectly its age, and it was ok for the kind of entertainment it proposed, like: "this a cheap game with a cheap illustration and packaging design, it's up to you fill the holes with your imagination!". ruff and tumble instead is just bad, because it's to self-stating and styled that you cannot ignore it, but the content, the face of the character tell you to stay away from the game! :lol

That's worse than Viz box art.

I don't think the Viz art box is too bad... It's based on the comic so I think it fits well ;)

Maybe you are resistant against ugly covers, Damien. It's awful, even for a comic based game. ;) :D

I do agree with Daimen Viz boxcover do reflect the comic very well.

The third cover on this title http://hol.abime.net/1368/boxscanis buttugly :laughing

I don't need a better excuse to get the VIC-20 out!
Some bad covers coming soon..

Considering how awesome the artwork in Hired Guns is (in game) its amazing just how shite the box art is.

Seriously, it looks like it was drawn but some talentless 15 year old.

i agree, it's underwhelming for such a good game

This one is pretty gay, even if it reflects this really crazy PCE-CD fun shooter. :laughing

And of course all Sega Master System cover. Much uglier than the first SMS console. ;)
