Isn't it like one of the very first Sierra Tandy creations or something? I'm pretty sure I've seen this image somewhere before...

yeah, this screen looks pretty familiar. I first thought it would be Sinbad - Throne of the Falcon... but actually I'm clueless.

Neither Sierra nor on the Tandy. The game company is rather well known for their adventures though, and you're probably familiar with other works of the designer.

I thought I had played a lot of games in my youth... and yet, you guys post one after another that I never heard of before...

Okay, I had no idea what game this is, and as it seems others don't know either... I cheated, and googled to the solution...

Spoiler: ShowHide

A .... edited, no solution here anymore :p

Whoa whoa! Hold your horses! Give it some time. GG posted it merely yesterday.

Also there's an unspoken rule here: do not post image searched solution!

Well, I did not image search it. :) Cassiebsg didn't exactly specify if image search was used, I only assumed it. I might be wrong of course. If the answer is a result of various questions to good old Uncle google then such answer is perfectly fine in my book.

No Gribbler's right, I used image search... somehow it's a very useful tool and I like it. :p
To my defense, I did not find any of GarageGothic's pics on the search though, another showed up that I thought "that looks like it would fit"... But not my fault the artist did a lousy job on the second pic, since it got me curious as it had nothing to do with the first one (in my eyes anyway)... :D

Oh yeah, and I did say I cheated, right? :) And I took the time to hide it even... :p

Well, if nobody else (who hasn't peeked at the answer) would hazard a guess, I think the turn should just pass to Cassiebsg.

The interesting thing about Michael Crichton's Amazon is that it started out as Congo - The Game but was transplanted to South America because someone else had already bought the adaptation rights. There's a pretty good explanation of the game's development on the site Cassiebsg linked to: http://www.filfre.net/2013/10/from-congo-to-amazon/ - in case anyone is wondering what happened to the amazing artist behind the screenshots, he is now a cinematic artist at Blizzard and worked on Diablo III and Starcraft II.

Ah! That explains why...

Spoiler: ShowHide

...the leopard looks like from South America, and the soldiers look like from Africa... :D (hope that IS why).


If no one objects, then I'll post the next game picture (but I'll hide it, in case anyone does ;) )...
I spent countless hours playing this one with my brother. ;)

Starts with K? So it's not Ground Attack?
