Name games using that letter-wheel thingy to enter your name.

I'm talking about those thingies when you die in a game (usually), some have a plain text line, like "_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _" with the text above "please enter your name"... others have that letter wheel.

I want you guys to name games using the letter wheel (don't ask why, just curious).

I remember some games using them, and have checked HOL, but the screenshots on HOL are almost always from ingame play, no highscore screens and the like....

So, give me names and I'll play the games to check them out...

Thanks.

Interesting designs.... but I'm looking for the static kind.. a fixed letter box, that rotates....

In hybris they all fly in from top right and forms a circle, and u select letter ofc with the huge vertical alphabet thingy in the middle:


The one in Uridium II is so dull :


Wonder why there are not sites dedicated to "enter your name" stuff (or just a small section).... there are sites for almost anything else.... would be nice with a site that has screenshots or videos from all kinds of different enter-name designs. Was thinking of making my own for my next game and needed some inspiration.... so wanna see more of these things...

Nope, can be any system.... but I can only test Amiga games :P.. will not install other emulators....... well, can try stuff that runs on MAME too, if it doesn't need additional files, like special roms.... got all to run neo-geo and the common ones... it's enough for me, won't get additional stuff.
