The cover art for Licence to Kill is attributed to David Rowe in the archive, but it is the same as the UK movie poster. The poster is a composite of photographs and painting designed by Robin Behling. So I think David Rowe should be replaced with Robin Behling.

Short Circuit - the background image is a retouched version of John Alvin's movie poster, with a photograph superimposed on it (I suspect by Steve Blower). So I suppose John Alvin should have a cover art credit.

Hehe, Mobygames is a true gold mine for this topic! :mrgreen:

And that's why I like SC database, it gives you the chance of search for additional info of every game in other DBs: WoS, Mobygames, ZX Art... with their corresponding link.
