  • HELP? Looking for high quality Neon Genesis Evangelion: Ayanami Ikusei Keikaku with Asuka Hokan Keikaku Playstation 2 disc cover art scan

  • Did anyone hear of or play the MS-DOS 1991 Konami TMNT game? The Manhattan Missions?
    It is a platformer. I wrote a review of it on There is very little puzzle solving involved. The most puzzles that need to be solved is in Extortion 1 where you need to find the valve wheel to shut off flooding to allow you to enter Baxter's lair, and to get the rope to swing to get to the wheel.

Just download the images for the cover you want and one full cover scan (as a template for proportions), use the scale tool to edit the relevant cover, spine,... - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
