Name Those Pixels: Challenge #6

January 5th, 2007 by Benj Edwards

Pixel Challenge #6 - 1Welcome to our first Name Those Pixels Challenge of 2007. I think I’ll be making this column bi-weekly from now on so as not to overload your ultra-sensitive pixel receptors. Also, if you like this column and want it to continue, please show your support in the comments.

Now, on to the pixels. This week we’ve got three games again, and two of them are from the same system. The first is to the right, the other two are below. As always, post your guesses in the comments section of this entry, and don’t be bashful. Good luck!

    #1 looks very Atari 2600, but I don’t know what.

    I’ll have to think more on 2 and 3.

    ..and definitely keep Name Those Pixels going. I really enjoy puzzling them out.

  2. Chris Says:

    #1 is Pick Axe Pete from the Odyssey 2 console.

    No idea on the other two, although they look like NES games.

  3. tailsdales Says:

    1 is joust, 2frogger, 3rampage,

  4. Brian Beck Says:

    Any hints on the system #2 and #3 are from?

  5. RedWolf Says:

    Ok, here’s a hint. They are from the first video game system to have a CD attachment (but they are not CD games).

  6. Brian Beck Says:

    #2 is Devil’s Crush and #3 is Keith Courage in Alpha Zones, both from the TurboGrafx-16.

  7. fernando bueno Says:

    #1 is definitely Pick Axe Pete.

    Here in Brasil it was called “Didi na Mina Encantada”.

    I surely spent some hundreds of hours of my childhood staring at those pixels well enough to reckognize it anywhere again.

    #1 = Rain Man 😉
