And now a tricky one:

Street Sports Basketball:

In the instructions file we can read:

'Original artwork for Commodore 64 version by Suzie Green, Sheryl Knowles and Michael Kosaka'

The question is after checking the Commodore inlay in the Mobygames link I see there are two different inlays for the C64, both disk versions.

I had a search in google and I could easily find a C64 cassette inlay with the same artwork as the Spectrum one.

But the instructions are for both disk and cassette versions... so can anyone shed light on this? :?

The credits on Mobygames for other games that Suzie Green, Sheryl Knowles and Michael Kosaka worked on are all for graphics rather than cover art so I think that credit is for in-game art that only appears in the C64 version.
