I get what you mean but shouldn't there be some consistency with how he's credited to games in the sense that his "proper" name is always first? Maybe I'm wrong but if I didn't know any better then when I skim through the list of games and artists it looks like Fantasy World Dizzy and Rock Star Ate My Hamster were done by two people with really similar names rather than them actually being the same person. To be honest, the Alistair name is really just a typo that's come up at some point. My nephew put Richerd on my Xmas card because his spelling is still at the phonetic stage but it doesn't mean it's an official variant of my name! ;)

Actually, to clarify what I mean by "official", Alastair and Alistair are both proper names but I don't think anyone who was called one or the other would accept the other spelling as being the correct spelling of their name. As for my name, some people choose to spell Richard with an e but I certainly don't! :)

Good point. Typos shouldn't be catalogued, only intentional nicknames.

I will fix it in the next ZXDB update!

Back to the Future (Electric Dreams) - Drew Struzan ... low-artist

The site talks about the film cover, but it's just the same as the game cover.
