Also, jesus cheezus googling California Games - I played this on Commodore 64 when I was maybe 5 years old but had completely forgotten about its existence.
fridgeboy Is it Surf Champ?
It is not Surf Champ.
But it is Outrun.
that was clever good one
Oh crap that means I have to do the next one huh? Okay… gimme a minute
Although I realize after going back to the original rules that I cheated by guessing twice in the same post. Sorry! I won’t do that again.
This apparently drunk… something-or-other appears in a bar scene.
fridgeboy I think it’s okay to guess again after a hint has been given, personally
wonder project J?
That is not it, but it is the correct console generation
kinda looks like nanatsu kaze no shima monogatari but that’s not really a game for easy mode!! is it a zelda CD-i game lol (link: the faces of evil)
Nope! I thought for the next clue, I’d just start zooming the image out. This image is from sort of the game’s hub. It’s a spot you come back to throughout the game, and occasionally new characters will appear.
3 dirty dwarves?
No sir. This game was a Sega Genesis exclusive. Although it has appeared in a variety of formats in recent years.
oh shoot, it’s shining in the darkness (shining in the dorkness)
you got it!
alrighty, let’s see what we can get going here
For some reason my immediate feeling is a 16-bit era or arcade beat-em-up. Like a Streets of Rage sort of thing. I’m trying to figure out if those things behind the ghost and woman are baseball bats or telescopes.
Well here’s a hint - baseball bats!
Is it Ninja Baseball Bat Man?
Uhhh Super Baseball 2020?
fridgeboy I should clarify there’s a sort of no tag-backs rule (IE you can’t guess off the person immediately following you) for both threads, to ensure one person doesn’t end up dominating the game.
None of these! If I zoom out all will be revealed I think so I’ll say this is an arcade game, maybe that helps
