Remember This?

Can 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!

    HAHA Classic game - Legend of the Mystical Ninja, I think it was called Goeman in Japan

    Mystical Ninja

    The Legend of the Mystical Ninja on the Super Nintendo

    this looks like one of the older ganbare goemon games

    ...if that helps anyone

    Ah the Legend of the Mystical Ninja on SNES.. spun off from the Ganbare Goemon series I believe.
    Always found that weird guy hosting the dice game a little creepy, but this right here is one of the best co-op games I've played of the era.
    Also fantastic the way Konami stuck in those little arcades as well where you could play single level versions of some classics like Gradius.

    Keen Dreams! (screw jackrabbit, I'm guessing Keen Dreams everyday now..., bound to win one day)

      I found Keen Dreams to be so buggy and unstable back in the day, I couldn't actually play it properly - I could pick it in a 'Remember This' lineup maybe if it had a checkerboard pattern obscuring part of the screen since that was one of the more distinct glitches I recall encountering.

      Did anyone else find that? Or is it some sort of retroactive karmic retribution that I couldn't get a game like that to run and yet I had near-flawless experiences with titles like Mercenaries 2 and The Saboteur :p

        Yup, it was a mess. Worst of the Keen games, but its bound to come up one day. :)

    *OFF TOPIC* I see 'Goemon' mentioned a few times here, I watched a movie by the same name this weekend just gone, is it/he some kind of legend / myth?

    The blurb mentioned Robin Hood.

      Well according to Wikipedia the roots of the character are based on Ishikawa Goemon, a Robin Hood-like figure who was boiled alive after failing to assassinate one of the local warlords.
      It's probably related since the Goemon series of anime and games look to have taken loose inspiration from the character similarly to how The Saboteur was loosely based on William Grover-Williams.. except latter iterations of Goemon abandon the noble thief ideal in favour of a more traditional video game hero.
      It was also interesting finding out that Ishikawa is considered an ancestor of Goemon from Lupin III (I guess as the titular character was derived from Arsene Lupin, another historical [albeit fictional] character, this ties in nicely)

        Wow, boiled in oil for attempted murder?
        Things were harsh back then.

    woo~ Goemon!!
    Loved the first n64 version, still ranks as one one my favorites.

    and @Blake: Yeah, Goemon's a legendary thief, who did the robin hood "steal from rich to give to poor" gig. Boiled alive at the end, I think...

    @Qumulys
    You know that Jazz Jackrabbit is going to be the next one now

      You missed it on Friday!

        Yup, I was stung bad.... Still miffed about that one :p

    @ Danny, thanks for that, might have to do some reading of my own, was the Anime any good?

      I actually didn't know about the anime myself until I saw the references listed on the Wiki page, so I'm tempted to try and track down a copy for my own interest :p
