It's... Guess The Screenshot: March 09

Rules:

1). Only 1 screenshot post at a time

2). Winner is the only person who can post screenshots OR they can nominate another member.

3). Screenshots must be from Amiga (Obviously) games only

4). Screenshots can have a minimum shot size of 60x60 pixels (NOT ZOOMED/RESIZED). This also includes ensuring WinUAE is setup correctly. Please ensure that you select a screensize of 320x200/256, Line doubling is off and lo-res is ticked.

5). Ridiculous shots (i.e not legible as a game) will be removed and the previous screenshot poster can have another go

6). Screenshot must be from a COMMERCIAL or well known PD release and can be from any part except the cracktro etc..

7). 5 Points for a correct answer, 1 point per day for the poster if his screenshot is not guessed (point is awarded after 24 hours from when the screenshot was posted)

8). League table will be kept in the post directly after this one

9). Anyone posting screenshots when it's NOT their go will lose a point and the post deleted.

10). If a new game isn't posted within 24 hrs of getting the answer confirmed correct then the player forfeits their go and the previous player chooses who is next..

11). Only one guess per person per hour UNLESS somebody else guesses within that hour AND the poster has to say whether it is/isn't correct.

12). Have fun

Any rule breaks will result in the go being disqualified and a point deducted from score.

No guess, but let's try to solve this.

Games with mini-games I could think of:

- Pong in Alien Breed: probably not
- Dux (or whatever the name) in Lotus II. I don't know the original but I don't hink so.
- Various mini-games in Wiz 'n' Liz. Among them, the only one I 'know' the original name is snake. A search in HOL didn't reveal much clones and none looked like the screenshot. Maybe it's one of the other mini-games.

Dux is in Lotus 3, not 2.

Nope, and with the hint I meant that this picture is from a seperate stand-alone game, that's not ripped from any other game (AFAIK), but in another game, this type (genre) of game is considered a sub game

Almost got it TCD!

Now what would be some other word that we get to see quite often in some threads that those who use it aren't very happy with the progress? ...

The years is '88, btw

I had correctly understood your tip. I was listing those games with sub/mini-games, which easier to find, so that in the end we could find the the original/remixed into its own game sub-games.


Browsing the 1988 list, I think of Impossible Mission II, given that the original is in the 2025 version if I remember correctly.

Nope.
It is not a rip from any game, it's just that this game's genre type matches some other game's sub-game.
They don't share the same author nor graphics or even sound.

Guess Shoonay found out that he will never get enough points by guessing screenshots, so he just gains them by giving useless hints and let the days pass by...

Yeah, like that's something no one ever did before here, ain't it?

Browse the freaking '88 games like you always do and don't complain! :P
