How to Play


  • P1 posts a game screenshot -- Obscure the source if possible & upload to imgur
  • P2 guesses the game correctly & posts the next screenshot (wait for P1 confirmation if not 100% certain)
  • etc.

Rule Clarifications


  • Search engine or other detective work is ok.
  • Any video game is allowed. Unreleased or cancelled games are ok too, but should be relatively well-known.
  • Official game artwork for covers/manuals/promo materials is allowed, just try to make it somewhat iconic.
  • If P2 answers correctly, they may pass their turn and the first person to post a new screenshot becomes the new P1.
  • If P2 has not posted a new screenshot within 12 hours, the first person to post one becomes the new P1.
  • If there is no update from P1 within a 12 hour period, the first person to post a new screenshot becomes the new P1.
  • There are no scoring penalties ever. You may be occasionally reprimanded, however, with a tasteful .gif. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  • the.kuribo has a negative score simply because he is not above such names as POO and ASS

What is a boogaloo?


The Electric Boogaloo is a dance style that became meme-ified to denote crazy sequels, as popularized by the 1984 film Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. While we are not break dance battling here, it is kind of like a screenshot battle and hence, the "screenshot boogaloo".

You are indeed quite correct. Welcome to the thread! :j

And posting a screenie is a whole different kind of fun ('No, that bit of moustache would make it too obvious... darn, Yandex reverse search gets it anyway!') - hope you'll join in at some point. A screenie often looks obvious only to the person who's making it.

The art style of the first screenie looked sooo similar to my impression of Fell Seal (with these cutaway creatures on blocky landscapes) that my mind instantly jumped to that one. But then the hints started to arrive.

Yeah, I ultimately found it by the screenie of the world map. I was on the right track when I started looking through Tactics RPGs from 2001-2002 on MobyGames - but the problem was... the game is not even listed on MobyGames. So my thanks go to that one weird Russian chap whose gameplay video is the only video of the game on YouTube.

And yes, I'm a bit of a Dizzy fan. Spud's Quest is an entirely different game in the style of Dizzy games, with some extra stuff thrown in. An environmental puzzle here and there, some metroidvania-like ability gaining, that sort of thing. Loved it.

I always got stuck at Race 15 Pencil Plateaux (fastest cars race 2/3). One time I managed to win it due to a glitch, made a huge shortcut and somehow didn't get thrown back. Then I couldn't figure out where I can/can't drive in Race 19 (tanks race 2/3) and being a dumb kid (7 yrs old maybe idk) I ragequit the game despite having 8 spare lives :D Redeemed myself a few years ago by finishing the game after more than a decade. It's hard. The last race is very hard.
