Screenshot jigsaw puzzle #18

Zoom in on this story. Explore all there is to know.

Today's jigsaw was suggested by last week's winner. Can you work out what game it is?

Today's jigsaw was suggested by last week's winner. Can you work out what game it is?

Screen Play's ludicrously knowledgeable readership may finally be stumped.

In lieu of a prize last week, I offered the person to make the first correct guess the opportunity to nominate a game for this week's puzzle. Reader Gruntis emailed me privately and suggested a game that I happen to have played, but which is so obscure I wouldn't be surprised if he and I were the only ones.

So yes, in spite of my worries that it might be too hard, I have run with Gruntis's suggestion, and that's the puzzle you see above. Of course, after all this build-up someone may still guess it from the first two pieces, but I think it's unlikely in this case. Fingers crossed!

For the newcomers, here are the rules. Every Friday I put a virtual jigsaw puzzle online, made from a screenshot of a game. It tends to be either an old favourite or something new and obscure, but I do like to mix things up a bit. We start with a couple of pieces in the morning, and every hour or two a few more are added, until the whole thing is revealed around 5pm.

In what may become tradition, the first person to post the correct title in the comments below will earn the right to nominate a game for next week (though I reserve editorial power over the choice, just in case).

Off you go then!

  • I'm thinking something from the old SSI (AD&D) maybe Gateway to the savage frontier? Looks like something from that era

    • I want to choose something like a megaman or metroid but if you're suggesting that not many people have played it then I have no idea.
