Toi Acid Game (1989) on the ZX Spectrum/Amstrad CPC with irrelevant artwork by the magical Juan Giménez. Here’s an article that shows this game’s connection with raver culture and a food company.

Ke Rulen Los Qetas for the Amstrad CPC. Predictably lovely art by Juan Giménez. This is as good a scan as you’re gonna get, but I’d like to be proven wrong.

Opera Soft had some cool illustrators on board. I can’t say for certain, but this looks like it might be Juan Giménez. They did have him do other covers.

I dig these drawings by Juan Giménez.  Sometimes it feels like when we got past the Atari age, the US marketing teams felt that we didn’t like nice illustrations.  The European computer game market, and the Japanese console game market kept getting them.
