Remember This?

remember this 090924Can you guess this old game from just one screenshot?

I’ll update this post with the answer at 5pm today if no one has guessed before then. Or if you do guess it before then, feel free to share your memories of a classic game.

Good luck!


    Captain Blood. And I'll go for a guess that it's on the Spectrum?

      Well done, it is in fact Captain Blood. (Although I like Sing's suggestion too.)

      It's not the Spectrum version though, even though it looks similar.

    I have very little hope of identifying any game before the NES era, so I'm just gonna take the alternative route from now on and say...

    DJ Hero featuring E.T.


    It is definitely Captain Blood, I never knew it had a spectrum release, but it would have to be going on the weird blocks of mono-colour that was the trademark of the spectrum.

    Damn.. Beaten by Derek! Captain Blood it is, although I don't think there's enough colour bleed going on there for it to be a Speccy game?

    I could never get this game to work on my very first pc. What was it about?

      If I recall right, the objective of the game was to track down Captain Blood's clones and kill them before dies; as his health deteriorates while they live. The highlight of the game interacting with different aliens using picture cards to track down the coordinates and kill the clones.

    OK, I'm calling this as Captain Blood the CGA version for the PC, those colours just scream good old CGA in DOS.

      Oh man does CGA suck, mono was much better.

    I guessed at Captain Blood and now reading the other comments, it looks like I was right. Peter beat me to declaring it to be the CGA version so I'll second his claim. Colours are perfect - magenta, cyan, and white.

    I always wondered what genius decided those horrid horrid colours would be the ones you got to take home for CGA.

    Found some footage from the be(ST) version :)

    has the funky music and

    which shows the cool communication system in action.

    I forgot how disturbingly fun this title was.

    Apparently the US version was missing the (slightly) nudie ending.

    Goddammit I would have got this one, too.
    I spent ages playing this on the C64. *nostalgic sigh* I need to track down some of these old soundtracks.
