On the left, is the original Amstrad cover for Army Moves, drawn by Alfonso Azpiri. Really nice work, but when Summit published the MSX port, they hired an artist to copy Azpiri’s drawing, and had him/her make it more exciting/realistic, apparently.

Another nice illustration by Alfonso Azpiri.  So, a boxing game called Rocky.  Sounds like a healthy amount of trademark infringement, right?  You don’t know the half of it.  Check out the next post to see how deep that went.
