That's gotta either be The Great Escape or Where Time Stood Still, both by Denton Designs and released by Ocean Software if my memory is correct.  Judging by what appears to maybe be the door to a building, I'll go for The Great Escape.

LOL

I knew it was easy. :) The Great Escape it is!
There are those who believe that life here began out there...

Okay, here's another Speccy one... a bit obscure maybe, I think I had it on a cover tape in the mid 80s!



Gotta love those colours...  8-)

I fear I may have gone a step too far into obscurity with this one?!  This game had a one-word title.

Never had a Speccy :~(
Also starting to collect them now seems to be quite pricey, since I'd have to get all the stuff from the UK.

Is the one word title: Terminus: The Prison Planet ? ;-D

Hey, I only ever thought of the game as Terminus!! Anyway, that's the one.

GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH I know that one!  I had it on the Atari ST.  I'm pretty sure it began with Z... Zaxon?  No I don't think that was it.... nnnngggggggggggggggggg this is going to drive me mad.  Wasn't Zarch, that was the Archimedes title for Virus (well, the other way round actually).

Gah... thank you Anstauber for melting my brain, this is going to drive me mental and I'll remember the name in my sleep only to find someone else got it before I log on again.

That leaves me excited if you can make it, before Gribbler spots an unguessed title
:D :D :D

Wait!  I should be in bed, but I think this was Galax or maybe 3D Galax!! (nod)

As a fun fact, I still play this some times to listen to Ben Daglish's soundtrack

Wow I couldn't remember the music but it sure brought back memories when I found it on YouTube.  Needless to say the ST version was pretty painful on the ears... ST chip music tended to be! :-D  This remix is nice -
  (Well thanks Absauber, I've just listened to this twice in a row and about to hit play when it ends again... aurgh!!)

Okay, so... what next?  Okay, here's a game... admittedly not a particularly good one, though not a terrible one either... that I got bundled with my first ST back in the eighties.  Cropped as the game features its name in the side status display!

You're SOOOOO close.  The only words that aren't actually in the game's title are "sim", "quest, "city, "police" and "in".

hmmm... Licence to Kill - it has at least the title in the GUI :)

@CaptainD
For some strange reasons, it's incredibly hard to find the original Amiga version of the 3D Galax theme :~(
This dance version is quite fun too http://bop.fm/s/ben-daglish/3d-galax

Adeel is closest so far. 

It has a different word for Helicopter in the title, and then a letter.
