Default HELP NEEDED: Please read

We're currently cleaning up game pages but due to the large volume of games we need your help finding them.

If you find a game with one of the following problems, can you post it here with a short explanation?

- games with no or less than 4 screenshots
- games that have a stub review (very short review of less than 10 lines - usually written by either Kosta or Sebastianos)
- wrong information (wrong publisher, wrong data in the review, etc.)
- a game with more than 10 "must try" games at the bottom
- a game with no "must try" games at the bottom. Make suggestion to what to add to the List.
- a game with poor quality screenshots (poor quality, too small, badly resized, etc.)
- games with a missing download

Honestly, I think a single screenshot for text games is good as well.

I think Beneath A Steel Sky has crappy screenshots. When I copied them they had the sizes 256x160. Most of the games that I checked have 320x200 and look very good.

Yep that's correct - I already have that on my list . I already corrected the review (wrote it myself) but screenshots are next on my list.

I've just made a quickly look through the racing sections, for bad review and screenshots.

Lamborghini American Challenge: review is quite odd and short.
(http://abandonia.com/en/games/79/Lam...Challenge.html)
Ivan "Iron Man" Stewarts Super Off Road: review is quite short.
(http://abandonia.com/en/games/28/Iva...+Off+Road.html)
Lotus 3 - The Ultimate Challenge: review is a bit short.
(http://abandonia.com/en/games/55/Lot...Challenge.html)
Micro Machines: some of the screenshots seem like they're in poor quality.
(http://abandonia.com/en/games/77/Micro+Machines.html)
Skyroads: short review, odd screenshots.
(http://abandonia.com/en/games/63/Skyroads.html)
Stunt Driver: one of the screenshots, looks like it's been resized.
(http://abandonia.com/en/games/1050/Stunt+Driver.html)
Wacky Wheels: short review.

If you need screenshots, I can give you two. Just don't laugh... I made 2 screenshots a couple of days ago when I played the game. I thought that they were so funny
Image 1
Image 2

http://www.abandonia.com/en/games/25...+Stranger.html - 9 line review, more than 10 games at the bottom
http://www.abandonia.com/en/games/18...e+de+Zale.html - bad screenshots

I knew I forgot something Thanks!

And thanks to everyone who have made suggestions so far! I'll make a list when I get home of all games needing attention.

Also while we're "cleaning up", why not delete 5 Days a Stranger and 7 Days a Skeptic, and advice people to use Reloaded instead, in the future?
