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.

Since no decent quality high resolution version of this awesome Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake box art exists online, I figured I’d remedy that situation.

Ouke no Tani: El Giza no Fuuin / King’s Valley II: The Seal of El Giza, MSX 2.Some of the music from this game was remixed by Michiru Yamane and used in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin.


(Konami - 1988)
from Wikipedia: “The game consists of six pyramids each with its own wall engravings and color pattern; every pyramid contains 10 levels. The idea of the game is to collect crystals called soul stones in each level by solving the different puzzles and evading or killing the enemies using the many tools and weapons available to unlock the exit door that will take you to the next level.”

I always thought this cover for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1989) on NES was badass. Here’s the box and source art, which was from issue #4 from the comic series.
