No, it's not Bubble Bobble.

Here's another clue:

It's the one (the name escapes me) where you go around the multi-screen map trying to locate objects - the first level is to collect the key then go to the box that looks like a safe. You can move around in 8 directions and fire in 8 directions, you cannot touch the walls as they are electrified, and on the first level the nasties come towards you but they don't fire, but in later levels the nasties can fire at you.

On level 1 the nasties are red spinning things that look almost like fan blades, on later levels they look more like UFOs.

Oh, and one last thing, if you stay too long in a screen a ghost comes from the top left and moves directly towards you.

What about Cybertron?

The key was the give away, appears when you've pushed everything onto the conveyor belt

Yep, I'm with you on that. I knew I recognised it but couldn't think what it was.

It was indeed Uncle Claude =D>

This next one is probably a bit trickier:

Wow, I wasn't expecting anyone to get it from the first image!

Mr. Freeze is correct, well done =D>

Right then, this is the last one, and is (probably) the hardest:

Yes, we have a winner! =D>

And with that we've reached the end of the games left over from last time.

Should I carry on doing these challenges, or does someone else want to have a go?

Oh no! Not sure what happened there, it was definitely showing up when I first posted it - but even for me it's missing now :-(

Was I just really deprived or something? I've never even heard of most of these games, apart from Frak! and Mr. Freeze.

Same, most these games I’ve never seen before... never heard of Alphatron, Demolator, Despatch Rider, Sim, Estra... and I’m guessing the latest conundrum is something I haven’t seen? Any other clues?

Off-topic: I'd love to see you do a video playthrough of Sim!

I may have been unfair on this one; it's considered an educational title, but you definitely get to play this robot in a dangerous space station.
