Purely because the portrait reminds me of Gil Gerrard, I'm going to say Buck Rogers!

I just love the look of the early french titles from Infogrames, Exxos and Coktel :)
But let's continue with this one:

This has the look of a Cinemaware title... Kings of Chicago?

  I already did King of Chicago a while back, though technically mine was the CGA version.  Hmmm...It does look like it.

Yay, I finally got one!!  (I did know Zak but someone else got there first.)

Anyway, here's a new one... not really sure how easy / difficult it will be.  I'm going back to a game I really loved back on the ZX Spectrum many years ago... not an adventure game.

I thought "ZX Spectrum!" even before I read accompanying text. :)

Don't know the game though.

I never had a 8-bit computer so I don't know much about those games. I started my gaming career with Amiga 500. :)

I played this game a lot but can't really remember the name...
I never got to do anything relevant in the game...
Ancient China...Nope

It's Tai Pan?

Miguel has it!  It was indeed Taipan by the awesome Ocean Software (not to be confused with the game of the same name that came out for the Apple II).

Fun fact for post-8-bit gamers:  on the Speccy tape deck, this game took a full 5 minutes to load!


You're up Miguel!

Yeah, it was a cool game for the time, you could sail from island to island and smuggle stuff...

Anyway, guess this one:
