The only game this makes me think of is BASS, and I know that's wrong!

Afraid not!

It's not an adventure game - it's a futuristic sports sim.

I'm not sure posting another screenshot would help, because they're pretty much all the same... so I'll give it another day and if no-one gets it, spill the beans and try another one.

Okay one final hint...

The game has a one-word title and was released by a French game publisher.

Ah well, it was released by Loricels and simply called Disc.


Okay this one should be easy (I think) - screenshot from the Atari ST version, this game was popular on 8-bit and 16-bit systems, and a remake was made some years ago updating the game concept for modern PCs.

Ha!  There were 4 levels - this was the worst one. 

They got better... and of course harder to win over:







The end result always looked the same on your wedding day - must have been the veil!!



The ones in the remake were considerably bustier...

YES!  One of my all-time favourite games.  Lost many hours of my youth to it...

  I loved Pirates as a kid, and later Pirates Gold.  Another early exploration game that I played like crazy was Seven Cities of Gold.

Also the map was a pretty good copy protection, I also played this a lot but didn't make much progress until much later.

Next one isn't an adventure game. But it's terrible ;-D

I think it's a circus game on the ST/Amiga, but I can't think of the name!  Um... Fiendish Freddy?
