The Dylan Dog/Diabolik/Tex games were an interesting thing on themselves: those were made in a shoestring budget, sold in NEWSSTANDS (yup, newsstands, in italy since th eighties there was a florid market of software - either original or pirated - sold in newsstands) for a pretty low price, around UKP 5 and witgh monthly cadence; those were reusing a modified version of the Dylan Dog and the Murderers engine and for the artwork were crowdsourced to external artists in an interesting way (i know because i submitted some artwork for a couple of games but that is another story).

Yeesh! The epitome of outdated, but that is no excuse since in 1987 we had far better games than this dreck! Nine levels of cheesy backgrounds, mediocre sprites, terrible control, godawful collision detection - everything that is bad. Just pass this one by!
There is also Karate King 2 [ Show youtube player ]
