The Maze of Galious (1987) by Konami for the MSX. Also known as Knightmare II. The artist looks like it might be Drew Struzan, who did the Goonies cover for Konami, but I can’t find confirmation on this.UPDATE:Thanks to ultrace, we got confirmation that this wasn’t done by Struzan after all. Great work nonetheless.

Bounty Sword
(Sadly the best scan I could find).

Thank you, Killroad! It’s a lot bigger than what I have. I really dig this cover. I’ll clean this up in a bit when I have time.

This cover is for a Japanese game simply called “Shit” for the MSX by Eurosoft. It was also called “Oh Shit” in another release. For Europe, they renamed it to “Oh No”.
