Too bad Mary in the Woods got no English release, I like the art style.

I'm uping Sinbad now.

Some games seems to be missing under Movie/TV Adaptations:

Antikiller (Mafia Contract Killer) / Headfighter (2005)
Great Escape, The (2003)
Reservoir Dogs (2006)
Tunnel Rats / 1968 Tunnel Rats (2009)
Tron Evolution (2010)
Tron 2.0 (2003)
Shield, The: The Game (2007)
Miami Vice: The Game (2004)
Wanted: Weapons of Fate (2009)
Terminator Salvation: The Videogame (2009)
Stranglehold, John Woo Presents (2007) - well, its sequel to the movie Hard Boiled (but so was Ghostbusters The Videogame).
Punisher, The (2005) - I'd say its actually based on comics, but some may argue.

Some suggestions:
1. Gangster tag for:
Payday: The Heist (2011)
Mob Enforcer

imho also for:
AntiKiller
Mob Ties: Tokyo

2. New category suggestion for SL - Spy

3. speaking of spies - NOLF series (Nolf 1,2, Contract Jack) deserve to be under Comedy too.

Fixes, suggestions:

1. Elite Heli Squad (Team6 game studios / Xing Interactive, 2005)
Game also has a demo: http://www.gamefront.com/files/3615855

Game was released in Apr 2005, but demo around 08-28-2004. Apparently the game was known Elite Helidefender before, as some sites host the demo under that name.
I wasn't able to get the demo working - after the loading screen stayed black. Win7 and/or ATI may not like the demo.

This demo has the following restrictions:
- A timelimit: After 60 minutes of playing, the fun is over..
- Only 1 helicopter available.
- Only 2 missions playable.

2. Jack Orlando
According to Moby, release happened in 1997(http://www.mobygames.com/game/jack-orla ... lease-info). In AL, its 1998.
Some sources, most notably http://www.mrbillsadventureland.com/rev ... orlanR.htm, claim even 1996.

Although i've seen covers with its logo, REALITY PUMP as dev is misleading. Actual developer in 90s was TopWare Interactive. As far I understand with, Directors Cut was made by Toontraxx. REALITY PUMP and Toontraxx were twins though - both born out from split Topware's Polish dev studio.

tiny link issue:
Starship Troopers: Terran Ascendancy (http://www.legendsworld.net/shooter/game/2128)
Screenshots 1 link - gamespot redirects it to newer and therefore wrong ST game.

1. fix suggestions:
I think there is some mix-up with "In Cold Blood". While I haven't played it yet myself, isn't it adventure? Also, MicroProse / Hasbro Interactive? 2001? Dev was Revolution Software, and... actually http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Cold_Blood_(video_game) gives details about releases and publishers.

2. maybe add a game:
1 1/2 Ritter - Auf der Suche nach der hinreißenden Herzelinde
2008, developer: Daedalic, Publisher: Warner Bros.
german only
demo, screens: http://www.gamestar.de/spiele/1-ritter- ... 44551.html
http://www.adventurecorner.de/reviews/25/1-ritter
http://www.adventure-treff.de/artikel/tests.php?id=175

3. maybe to add even more adventures:
Russian Rootfix Entertainment released couple of adventures:
in 2006
RUS: Золотой Телёнок
GER: Golden Life Unterwegs nach Brasilien
FRA: La quête au Trésor

http://questzone.ru/enzi/game/712

I surfed on Centauri Production webpage and some notes:

1.
Looks like the http://www.legendsworld.net/adventure/game/9326
has English version as well, according to home page http://www.centauriproduction.com/ctyrlistek.php
I suggest to add the title 4 Leaf Clovers to AL as well (although there should also be Language versions: CZ, EN, EST, FR, GER, GRE, HUN, POR, ROM, RUS).

2.
Ferda Mravenec seems to be missing from AL:
http://centauri.cz/ferda.php

3.
Domácí násilí: Game over seems to be missing from AL:
http://centauri.cz/nasili.php

So, there's a big mix-up in http://www.legendsworld.net/shooter/game/8962
Operation: Air Assault 2 IS and IS NOT Gunship: Tank Killer.
It GryOnline (http://www.gry-online.pl/S016.asp?ID=3028) is the source, it has mistakes as well.

Operation: Air Assault 2 is developed by Naps Team and published by Midas Interactive Entertainment Ltd. in 2007. The demo is that game.
The game is sequel to this Midas' published PS2 game: http://www.midasinteractive.com/product ... sault.html . I'm not sure if there's also a PC version, but as it is made by InterActive Vision, I suspect it might be a some kind of port of http://www.legendsworld.net/shooter/game/8924.

Gunship: Tank Killer has alternative titles indeed. One is Apache Longbow Assault, and the entry seems to be missing in LW.
proof: compare those videos:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2SoZPseeKc
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmFSbhrnUtM
That games is developed by InterActive Vision, published by Activision Value and released in 2004. In Poland it was distributed by PLAY.
http://www.mobygames.com/game/apache-longbow-assault
http://gry.wp.pl/gry/gunship-tank-kille ... nfo,0.html

Up until that point its easy to differentiate. But - InterActive Vision's previous game's http://www.legendsworld.net/shooter/game/8924 one of the aliases was Operation: Air Assault. So in some countries the Gunship: Tank Killer / Apache Longbow Assault was named Operation Air Assault 2 as well. eg by publisher Nobilis:
http://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/953910-opera ... box-113182


Also, researchers beaware, there are fake covers mixed up by 2 different games, like:
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-tkbOl3itzpg/T ... ault+2.jpg

Of course the mess doesn't stop there! Just when i made it clear for myself, I stumbled upon http://indirtik.blogspot.com/2013/07/air-assoult-2.html No idea WTF are those.

Long story short - overused title, which branched of by different publishers.

That game in the screenshot was actually Airstrike 3D or its sequel, I think.

http://www.legendsworld.net/shooter/game/8813
Game has another name as well - Helic.
I'm not sure is Helic updated version, or just renamed for another gaming portal. I can't remember for sure where did I download my Helic when I played in January, but i think it was http://www.gametop.com/download-free-games/helicopter/
I'm pretty sure the ingame logo was also "Helic", not "Helicopter Wars", but maybe someone who's interested about this (not so good) game can doublecheck. :)

edit: oh, the size is different - Helic is 69mb against HW 102mb. Umm... can't comment. Just a wild guess - maybe HC was/is add-supported? Helic is not.

Seems to be a trend with these "free" ad-supported games...change the title to make them seem new.
Air Hawk 2 here is actually AirStrike 2 http://www.myrealgames.com/download-fre ... ir-hawk-2/
and Air Hawk 3: Desert Storm is AirStrike II: Gulf Thunder http://www.myrealgames.com/download-fre ... ert-storm/
