I added "Nostalgie" after looking through Epsilon's page on that Russian site, I should have waited until you gave more info before I gave it an ID. Any screenshots & info you can give (either by email or in the old/new game thread) would be splendid.
And here are game images and screenshots for Nostalgie and another game from Alexei - Garden Zone.
I saved all games from Nostalgie as snapshots. Maybe it would be a good idea to make separate entries for each of them? Please decide.

For Garden Zone I added autobooting to .trd image

Coolio, btw for some reason Pixel Quest Zero and Tea Leaf Ted are listed in the "ACE" Series, which is not in any way correct!

Looks like some brackets need closing (or whatever the hell it is you PHP guys do).

It was an error in my script, sorry!

It will be corrected in the next ZXDB update.

In the interests of transparency just to let you know that I have deleted a post from MrPixel from the New Software Thread (with his agreement) as the game has not been released yet.

You're going to hate me, but the loading screen is still wrong :lol:
The thing is, when the game finishes loading, it starts a cool palette rotation effect, that's why there is a "blue" version of the screen, but the correct one is the pink version:
