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...

Does anybody remember what was the inspiration for the little robot from Pssst ?

I remember seeing some photo, probably from some movie, of a robot which looked exactly like the goy from Pssst but can't find it at the moment.

Actually I haven't seen that movie. Guess I'll have to update "to do in my life" list ;)

I've never heard of that film. Just searched some info and it seems quite an interesting sci-fi film.

Curious the way how we can find films to watch! :)

I came across an arcade flyier some days ago in internet (and can't find it now), from Nintendo's Puch Out. One of the characters looked very similar to this guy:

In fact, the game might be considered an unnofficial conversion of the Nintendo game.

Dude from "Butch - Hard guy" is also obviously copied from Sylvester Stallone as Rambo:
