Rick Dangerous II 1/2

There are two (similar) entries for Rick Dangerous II 1/2, I guess one of them should be removed?

See here.

They're not actually seperate entries (I presume you mean 2.5 and II 1/2)

They both point to the same entry on HOL, it's just that it makes it easier to search by offering both results.

The same goes for games like Nevermind (or Never Mind)

See Here

It usually means that the game appeared with slightly different names (numbers instead of numerals, dashes joining words, seperated words, extra capitals etc etc.) somewhere along the line so all the variations are used in HOL to allow users to search for a game under any of it's guises.

KG is right, often games in hol appear under several different names.

We're currently undergoing a process of cleaning up some of the names in hol (in order to reduce this sort of confusion) so watch this space...

I've nuked those 2 extra entries now - a search with either name will find the correct game anyway

Yeah I had noticed, I was gonna give Project-X and Project X as an example but "Project X" has disappeared

If that's the case, I did notice entries for

Ultimate Body Blows & Project X Special Edition

and

Ultimate Body Blows & Project-X Special Edition

so maybe the former should be removed, as both come up when you put in "Project X" anyway

I think maybe Project-X revised edition should have a "Project-X Special Edition" entry too maybe.
