    Law of the West. Wasn't this the screenshot from it?


    What 90s PC game is this artwork for?

    Damn, don't recognize that at all, best guess would be some sort of take on Battle Chess?

    Edit: just me or is the text/font much easier on the eye than LET?
  • indenting test
  • I prefer this font. It is a Chess game, by Spectrum Holobyte.

    Spent so much money on this at the arcade!

    That's a one's a bit obvious....

    This is my all-time favourite coin-op:

  • I cant remember if that is streets of rage or final fight? (I think final fight)
  • Guess again (it was neither of those)
  • Oh really, hmm, well it's not double dragon, I love those sorts of games, Shadow Warrior on the amiga was one of my favorites.
  • Scrolling brawlers are my second favourite genre, only just behind shoot'em ups.

    Sadly, both genres that more or less died out with the advent of 3D gaming.
  • See the game in all it's glory here:

  • Indeed, I have to admit that over a period of a few years I probably pumped about £200 in to tekken 2
  • heh, I honestly don't think I have ever seen that one, maybe it never made its way to north east England.
  • I remember shoving 10p's into one on Southend seafront as youngster, never recall seeing one anyone else, but we never went any further up the country than Wales.

    For years I thought it was only me who remembered it so fondly, but it actually got a call out in the original Ready Player One novel.
  • This one blew me away as a kid, it was so different:

  • Stuff like that was magical back in the day. There was something very similar by with a Wild West theme - I can't remember the name.

    My 'oh shit' moment in the arcades was probably the first time I saw Dragon's Lair running. Shame it was actually complete shite.
  • Hahaha. I almost followed up with Dragon's Lair. That was mesmerizing, especially in the days of chunky sprites.
  • Time Traveler was the cowboy thats what is in that video :)

  • Ffs all we had was centipede, space invaders, astroids. Then the bowling alley that had them is now a freaken Family Dollar.

    I broke a few joysticks on this one, C64 pictured, was also out on the CPC464 and speccy too iirc
  • Is that Rock N’ Wrestle?

    I see I need to edit the css a bit more to space out the 'Bits' and perhaps lower the size of it.
  • First Amiga game I ever bought with 'boots' vouchers I got for Christmas (for Americans boots is like wallgreens and Europeans its basically a giant pharmacy)

    Boots was the place to go for premium games releases back in the early 90's haha

  • Looks like Populous or Populous 2.

    One of the best games of the time.
  • Populous 1 yeah, I remember my friends older brother put together a serial cable and it was like the most technologically advanced thing ever to us, he made a cable! so we carried on foot my amiga to a friends house and a 'portable' tv to play 2 player over serial link.

    I loved that game, and populous 2 and powermonger

    Everywhere used to sell games. In mid-nineties, MVC was the place to go. In the mid-late eighties, my primary dealer was the local paper shop which had an extensive selection of £1.99 Amstrad CPC 464 cassettes.

    Back on topic:


    Edit: Yes, I like fighting games.
  • Pit fighter, I am a classic street fighter 2 demon!
  • OK, a slighter harder one then:


    My abiding memory of this game is that the character on the left had a special move called ‘Big Tornado’, but the terrible speech sounded like he was shouting ‘Baked Potato’ in a noisy arcade.
  • Fighters History.. ooh controversial!!!
  • Nicely done.

    Last fighting game, and my all-time favourite.
