Ugly Video Game Cover #1: Dragon’s Curse

Across the board, the Turbografx-16 had some of the ugliest video game covers ever and I’d wouldn’t be surprised to find out that they were drawn by the children of executives.  Poorly illustrated, the cover at least let’s you know what you’re getting into when you slide in the Turbografx card,  a guy with a sword and shield battling dragons … and flying things. If you can get past the cover, the game is a decent side scroller, with bright graphics, big bosses and gameplay similar to Mario 3.
