Game art copied from elsewhere

General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

We've already had Schwarzenegger, Stallone and Van Damme. Time for a bit of Seagal:

I found the next one mentioned on WoS.

Bedlam cover

Funnily enough in that thread Ralf said:

"It would be great to have all these references on new WOS at game records. Threads like this quickly get buried under dozens of other threads and images on the net tend to disappear."

Perhaps this information could be added to ZXDB.

How many games in the 80's featured xenomorph aliens?

R-Type and Gryzor are 2 that spring to mind, any others?

Well, the Alien franchise licensed games of course ;)

Back to topic, I seem to remember that Code Masters were forced to substitute the Race Against Time inlay featuring Jesse Owens:

with this one:

although the instructions say: "Cover Photo: Jesse Owens, 1936 Munich Olympics, Photograph courtesy of Allsport Photographic Ltd."
