Haha! So bad. :fastlove:

Maybe he's shooting his gun involuntarily due to the lightening bolt striking his anus.

:lol: he looks a bit reluctant too, like when someone takes a photo when you're not expecting it and catches you looking a bit miffed as you realise what's going on :problem:

Completely forgot this pearl... :awe:

I wouldn't know where to begin with this one, from the underdeveloped biceps to the Liefeldian super-prominent chest, a true and rare example of sparkling metallic turd.

There were some horrible wonderboy covers...

The Amiga one looks like it belongs in Viz. The Gamegear one, what the hell has it got to do with the game? :eh:

And I'm not sure what this is. Cabinet art?

Image

If we open this thread up to include loading and title screens, then things get really nasty...

:lol:

Gawd, those are bad :palm:

I like the dinosaur barman on Super Wonderboy.

Adding title screens is a great idea I reckon. I remember a few that tried to replicate the box art but failed miserably to the point where it hardly resembled it at all. I'll have to get my thinking hat on as I can't remember exactly which ones (and it's getting late on :oops: )

God, the more I look at this one, the worse it gets. I almost didn't include it too.

Look at his hand, it looks like udders have sprouted out of his wrist. And he has that "oh you.." look while he waves his sword up and down. And tie those shoelaces up, it's not cool - not when you've gone to the trouble of putting knee pads on.

Oh and while searching, I also stumbled across this :hinthint: ...

Image

...And this :wtf: ...

I'm not sure what happened with Ikari Warriors :eh: I guess I couldn't do any better though, in fact if I were to draw it it'd turn out a lot worse, but that's beside the point :oops:

I especially like the soldiers huddled in a trench or whatever on the left and that the guy on the right's ribs are just 3 pink lines :lolno:
