Wow, I never knew about the theft of Super GemZ and subsequent refusal to publish.

The scoreboards above, do look like those from Tetris Pro. The girl looks like a sketch made for the magazine not an Amiga graphic.

Thanks for the replies - any confirmation?

I looked through Gem'X longplay plus screenshots on HOL.

No dice.

It should be a screenshot from Amiga game - all the other graphics throughout the Amiga Power Top 100 feature I can recognize from the Amiga titles....

To be honest it doesn't seem to me a picture from Amiga game

As DDNI pointed out it should be a picture drawn for the magazine

Hi, the image belongs to Tetris Pro

[ Show youtube player ]

(check it at 2:15)
(this is a freeware game with some diferent versions (last in 2019!!!) and graphics are different depending the version you play, so this is the reason you didn't find it on the video you tried at 1st).
