A Game Over ad, using risqué artwork by Luis Royo. This artwork was originally used on the May 1984 cover of Heavy Metal magazine, which explains the nips. This site tells the sordid tale of how Dinamic first tried to cover them up with their logo, then eventually hired a different artist to paint her some much-needed metal nip armor.

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.

An ad for After the War, which ditched Azpiri's art for something more descriptive.

This is not an original scan.  I had to Photoshop a higher resolution print ad on a low-res box to pretend to myself that I had a high res box scan.  Play along.
