Cover art competition 2016

While we are voting on this year's music, hack and coding competition entries, let's have a little cover art competition. Here's the rules:

1. Pick a game to make art for. Homebrew, original SMS releases, the latest PlayStationBoxOne release, whatever.
2. Make some cover art in the style of a Master System game. Pick any "era" of art style you like so long as it's not too generic.

Here's some templates to get started on "generation 1" SMS art, and an example I knocked together in an hour or so. This is all for fun, probably no voting, and post entries as replies in this thread!

The "usual" Sega font is known as "ModernTwoSxtnITCStd" and you may find it here. I couldn't find an exact match for the box text font, so choose something close; I went with Goudy Old Style. Later styles may vary.

Here's mine, done in the comic-book pseudo-realism style Sega used for games like Hang-On / Gangster Town / Ghost House. Not sure if I really want to use it in the end or go for the good old regular "horrible clipart" style of the early releases instead. I really have a soft spot for the latter.

Here's a lazy piece of cover art I did.

I decided to make myself (again) a copy of Dr Hello for my collection because, why not. I like puzzle games :D
