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)

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!
