1 = R-Type???
3 = Ghosts & Goblins???

Well done Cthulhu Clap R-Type is correct. It's the ZX Spectrum version. You spotted the iconic reflection-laser, right?

You are almost right with Ghosts n Goblins...

And..... Happy Birthday to you!! Joe Honfu JoeHeadbang 2 I just saw at bottom of front-screen

Thanks!
Yep, the laser gave it away for me.
Number 3 would then have to be Ghouls 'n Ghosts?

Well done, Ghouls n Ghosts (Commodore 64) is correct.

Those were Shielder's knees

I think you can take a guess at the 2nd one Smile

Hmmm, I don't know many racing games as it's not a genre I enjoy a lot...so Outrun maybe???

It's the other big racing game from the 1980s Grin

Here's a larger clue:

No worries. I won't give the answer just yet. I'll wait a bit to see if anyone else gets it

Well done Henke! Terry you got the correct system too for a bonus NG4L point.

You found the screenshot I used Cthulhu. I thought you might kick yourself when you saw what it was.

I'll do some more soon but feel free if anyone wants to make their own questions.

First has to be Defender, but what platform?

Second is maybe Final Fight on Spectrum

Last is Donkey Kong on Intellivision.

Well done Henke - You know your arcade games Clap

The first one was admittedly difficult to identify the platform but it was Defender on BBC Micro. (Later renamed to Planetoid for legal reasons)

1.Defender/Planetoid (BBC Micro)

2. Final Fight (Spectrum) (worth watching just to see how slow it runs. Was an impossible conversion to pull off though!)

3. Donkey Kong (Intellivision) with one weird looking 'Kong' beast!

I zoomed in a lot to make these harder but even so I think I may have made them a bit easy

cthulhu
1. No idea.
2. Afterburner on the Master System.
3. Looks a lot like Strider, but I'm not quite sure.
My arcade stuff

"ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn! Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn!"
 
Henke
First one is Bionic Commando on Game Boy.
 
RiKo
Well done Cthulhu and Henke Clap Terry All Correct!

1. Bionic Commando (Original Gameboy)
i.imgur.com/8wBY9jv.jpg
2. Afterburner (Sega Master System)
i.imgur.com/Z7VZVi8.jpg
3. Strider (NES)
i.imgur.com/FUy3DeZ.jpg

Strider and Bionic Commando weren't exact conversions. They were more adaptions of the arcade originals. But I had faith in you guys Smile

OK so next time I will make them a little harder.....
