I’ve always been a big fan of the Commodore 64 cover for this game.

Breakdance (1984) by Epyx on the Commodore 64. I dig this. It’s like hip hop’s Xanadu.

An ad for Hysteria (1987) on Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum. The catchline for this should be “Things are about to get awkward.”

Hawkeye (1988) for Commodore 64 by Thalamus. It was developed by the Dutch demo scene group The Boys Without Brains.
Death Bringer, Commodore 64. I’m not clear on who’s bringing the death here.

This is not an interesting cover visually. I just thought I’d mention that Vixen/She Fox on the Commodore 64, Atari ST, and other platforms was controversial in 1988 due to it featuring of Corinne Russell (risque model and dancer) on the cover. Totally NBD now.

Alter Ego (1986) on the Commodore 64 by Activision. The male and female versions had the same cover, unfortunately, but it communicates things pretty well, I feel. It’s a “game” designed to let people live the result of a set of experiences vicariously (starting a birth), and was meant to teach people about the consequences of decisions. Most paths were humorous, but some led to serious consequences like being raped or murdered. The game was designed to teach life lessons, so it ended up coming across as a bit preachy.
