Wow, thats a nice one. The SNES designer should be ashamed about his Hillbillie cover.

By the way, that's the programmer's head in the box art.. Jukka Tapanimäki..

I saw some interview where he recited that his first comment to Hewson was basically "I'll kill you!".

The author has passed away (suicide). He got screwed over quite bad in the deals with his games and I think he started having mental problems at some point.. Don't know how related the problems were to the quality of the deals the SW houses forced him into.

My friend managed to get all his c-64 disks by chance - there was an ad in a newspaper that there was some disks for grabs and he just routinely went to collect them.. Then saw the name at the door.

I'm fairly certain this is the worst rendition of Pac-Man in the entire history of videogame covers.

He's had limbs in some of the promo stuff Namco have done. It's the torso, the horrible vest and the buckteeth I'm more concerned about.
