Yes! There it is!
The happiest VGC time of the year. Your hints started off good, I would have guessed Warcraft III on Smeags's hint even though I suspected it wouldn't have been correct (guess I suspected correctly) and I thought Turtles in Time immediately when reading Neodegenerate's hint. But alas, I was too late.
Anyway, without further ado, my hint. Veknoid actually guessed it correctly last year and some might even remember that, but I'm not expecting this game (or a couple others) to actually be guessed. I will be impressed if anyone does!
Back in the time this came out, graphics were so primitive it was actually the box-art that gave gamers an impression of what it was supposed to look like. This is why depending on your point of view, American or European, this game is exactly the opposite from what it is for the other.
