Question Games that came in plastic boxes?

Can anyone remember examples of games that came in plastic boxes?

The ones that looked like big CD cases.

2 I can think of are

New Zealand Story

Interceptor

Anyone know of any more?

The reason Im asking is Ive just got hold of a mint condition Cadaver the Payoff (finally!) but without its plastic box so I wanna get a replacement off ebay.

Cheers and Merry Christmas

Turrican came in a plastic box (certainly one version did anyway)

I remember it being like an old double cassette box without the tabs.

Infact, I think that many Kixx C64 & Amiga games were packaged with these.

The ones I had...

Menace
Sidewinder
Fusion
FA/18 Interceptor
Ferrari Formula One

Bear in mind though that the Fusion/Interceptor/FFO came in cases which had a small flap on the side and had Electronic Arts kind of embossed into the plastic IIRC.

The only one I had full priced (in plastic box) was Gianna Sisters. All others were as Magno Boots mentioned - budget classics.

Never seen any Amiga games (except CDTV/CD32) in a double CD case.

They were all in double cassette cases (with the bits that held the reels of the cassettes removed) that were popular in the C64 / Spectrum games.

Wow thats some list.

That should make finding a cheap replacement box easier to find on ebay.

Cheers

I seem to recall everything that ANCO published was in a clam-shell plastic case, at least the titles I looked at when they were on the store shelves
