Out Run - A minimalist icon based on the memorable title screen logo. Understated, classy and with a bit of chibi, superdeformed style.
Chase H.Q. - A humorous illustration, reminiscent of the anarchic style of Mad Magazine and CARtoons Magazine. (If you've never seen CARtoons, it was a well-established American comic magazine that featured cars... a good number of excellent artists contributed over the course of about three decades, including director/Monty Python alum Terry Gilliam).
Captain Silver - Nice flowing composition framed by the ship's sails. I recently learned that the U.S. version is pared down to a one mega cartridge, compared to the PAL two mega cartridge. But I'd give the artwork edge to this release.
Honorable Mentions: Basketball Nightmare - the funky airbrush artist who did Alex Kidd in Shinobi World and several other titles returns with another nice composition. California Games - I think most of us have fond memories of this rollerskate woman. Correct me if I'm wrong. Winter Olympics: Lillehammer 94 - a gripping rendering of the psychotic speed involved in many winter sports. Action Fighter - another good iconic cover that will get trounced in this tournament, yet nicely sums up the theme of the game.
Heroes of the Lance - Crap game, awesome cover at least if you're into Fantasy and Dragonlance, it's great Chase H.Q. - has a really weird style, as some other said, kinda like Mad magazine or something like that Captain Silver - Way better than the EU cover, i always liked pirats Nearly voted for: Andre Agassi Tennis, that haircut is just too awesome and the beard goes with it just perfectly
