Jagged Alliance? Really? Looks nothing about what I remember it... maybe I fell into a deep hole and forgot how games looked like? :D

Yeah, sure. You might be thinking of the tactical view. In conversation views, e.g. at mission briefings, all of the portraits were airbrushed to oblivion: http://www.nowgamer.com/siteimage/scale/0/0/189317.jpg

Guess I didn't pay that much attention to the briefings then. ;)

Hmm... time for a hint. It's a Windows 3.1 game, in the style of Myst. Made in Australia. Having a hard time finding good screenshots of it. It was a really terrible game. Just imagine rooms and rooms of ray-traced scenery like this:

I guess, not that many Australian adventurers around here. Maybe it's time for some tell tale hints. :)

Oh, I didn't realise this would be so obscure.

Okay. Umm... the name starts with an E. It's a one word name with eight letters. It was re-released in a deluxe CD edition in 1997. I don't know how much more I can give away, but I'll keep dropping hints. :D

No idea.  Guess based completely on your crosword style hints - Explorer?

Unfortunately, that's not it. But here's another clue to narrow it down further. It was published by WizardWorks Software.

This one's even easier, but now that you've posted from one classic isometric Speccy game, I can't stop myself from doing another!  One from EVERYBODY'S Top Ten Speccy Games list. :-D

Head over Heels

Yes indeed!  One of the greatest games of its time, Jon Ritman and Bernie Drummond pushing the 8-bits to their limits and beyond.

Nice one! Actually the version I posted from Knight Lore was the Amstrad version.
But yes, you're right, it's amazing that Head Over Heels was made on the ZX machine.
