This one seems a real time strategy game set in the Romance of the three kingdoms (Sangokushi) universe. The executable is named SANGO.EXE.

Priority is knowing the name of the game, but other information (Manufacturer, year) is also welcome.

According to that the English game name would be... "Three storms"? Looks like this is one obscure game. Thanks for the digging.

It could even mean "Three Kingdoms something else", which may be the game referred here

Another bunch. As before, priority is the game name, in English or romanized Chinese. Any other info is also welcome. I'm fairly certain, for what I've dug out about the manufacturers, that they're all Taiwanese games.

First game:

What I already know: Manufacturer is T-Time Technology Corp.

Second game:

bWqGues.png?1 nJOxy0B.png?1

What I already know: Manufacturer is Soft-World.

Third game:

1VSU273.png?1 9VDSvho.png?1

I know nothing about this one... expected the "Jurassic" in the title to make it easier, but nope.

Fourth and last game:

vdtyYqY.png?1 LkxQGpm.png?1

What I already know: Developer is Chi Ton Soft and year of publishing is 1995, according to the title screen.

These two are Korean, I think:

1) Journey to the West Rumor (or something similar)

RCaWGv6.png 5Xuo4Zt.png

I'm looking for its name and release info (developer, publisher, year)

2) Football China 1996

S3lDvcN.png?1 LNpc6ws.png?1

Looking for just release info (developer, publisher, year) this time.

By the way, if you like me have trouble regarding identifying Korean games, I suggest you to check out the Hardcore Gaming 101 website.

Oooops, I forgot: and another of those Chinese chess games, this time for Windows:

3) Battle Chess: Water Margin (or something of sorts):

That's "Journey to the West RPG" / 西遊記外傳 (Hsiyuchi Waichuan)
Publisher: Soft-World
(I suppose Tan Ton Nerw could be the developer, since they're on the title screen)
Released: 1995

Apparently there's a Korean version of this, called 'The Legend of Dragon' (서유기외전), developed by MB Software and released in 1999 by Korea Licensing Ltd ( 한국라이센싱). That seems to be a Windows CD-ROM game though. (?)

Sory, this one's got me stumped. That stuff on the right screenshot is "甲A风云 / Jiǎ A fēngyún", but the only game I'm finding references for is apparently from 1992(?) and without developer/publisher info.

Water Margin Battle Chess / 象棋水滸戰 (Hsiang-ch`i Shuihu-chan)
Developer: Sheng Industry Information Co. (晟業資訊)
Publisher: Soft-World
Released: Aug 15, 1997

A new one: SETUP.EXE identifies the game as "Sango", and developer is Game Box Co. Ltd.
I'd need Chinese title (in Latin alphabet) and English translation, if possible.

Biographies of the Three Kingdoms / 三國列傳 (Sango Lieh-chuan)
Developer: Game Box Co., Ltd.
Publisher: Game Box Co., Ltd.
Released: Jul 15, 1997

However, the version in your screenshot seems to be a Korean release - 삼국풍운 1 (Samgugpung-un 1), also known as "The Three Kingdoms RTS" (apparently). No idea about the year and publisher for this one though.

I'm not sure, but...

The A Storm by Genius, 1995

That "A" may refer to Chinese Jia-A League.

Yes, that's the one. Only difference is that it seems a Windows version.

Thanks a lot to both of you.

A couple more...

First one:

inIPRvg.png?1 ptd2BCM.png?1 QkZQpFO.png?1

What I already know: Game called 闷绝-技王传说 in Chinese?

Need romanized name and English translation. Developer / Year would also be great, but it's secondary.

Second one:

iWZ0nw1.png NM5qMaJ.png ROcYeEv.png

What I already know: Taiwanese RPG, more known that my usual requests. Name is 三界諭 邦沛之謎, produces many Google results and translates roughly to "Mystery of the three kingdoms".

Need to confirm English name, romanized Chinese name and publishing info.

Many oriental games are not covered (yet) in MobyGames. I'm a MG contributor and I may add these to the page in the future, although I hate the template to add new games / platforms. I mostly contribute screenshots these days.

But the main reason is to classify games in my personal collection. As I said, many oriental games are not found in MG, and this makes the task difficult, even if I find out minor details like maker / publisher from the game itself. In other cases I've not mentioned in this thread, these clues led me to find all the info I needed, from MG themselves or Wikipedia.
