I'm putting my prototypes into storage, so I made a video discussing them.

Alas, this forum software does not allow Youtube videos to be embedded directly, so please click on the link.

xx Metal Jack: Armored Police

May 17, 2014, 11:34:56 am by Evan


Although I was made aware of this prototype in the past, the release of the unreleased North American localization of Metal Jack: Armored Police flew under the radar for me. The gameplay is pretty much the same as the Japanese version, but the setting was changed from Tokyo to Los Angeles. I tried to find as much media coverage as I could on the game. I would love it if someone were able to find a higher resolution version of the box art, which I assume does exist. Thanks to nooglide for releasing the ROM image of the game, and ruiner9 for information of the release.

Armor of Thunder - new entry

Lakers versus Celtics and the NBA Playoffs - new entry

Might & Magic II: Gate To Another World - updated info for the unreleased North American version, plus added additional information on the PAL release and the completely different Japanese version. Also added information on a known prototype cart.

xx Homebrew section added

April 23, 2014, 03:36:07 pm by Evan
Well, people have been asking for this, and now I deliver: the Homebrew section. Although the SNES homebrew scene is quite limited at present, there are actually a lot of demos out there originating from when the SNES was in its prime. I have decided to start from the beginning in my documentation, and I hope this proves to be a useful archive. The first few pages I have added cover the first SNES homebrew demos, dating from September and October 1992. Expect the language of these BBS scene releases to be crude.

Of course, if there are any new homebrew demos, let me know and I will cover them. For instance, the nu demo.

xx Contra III prototype

February 23, 2014, 10:49:38 am by Evan


I promised on Twitter that I would try to do two articles this weekend. Well, promise fulfilled! Today, I present a prototype of Contra III. The title screen shows the early title of the game "Contra IV", but is otherwise pretty much intermediate between the US and Japanese release.

xx Hebereke no Popoon prototype

February 22, 2014, 07:14:16 am by Evan


It has been a long time since my last update, but I finally took some time to do one! I am releasing a prototype of Hebereke no Popoon, a Puyo Puyo style puzzle game. The prototype dates to about a month and a half before commercial release, and has only superficial differences from the final version. Thanks to lytron for this!

xx Super Uno prototype

September 29, 2013, 11:38:29 am by Evan


Unfortunately, nothing too special about this prototype. The internal header and some blank space differ from the final version, but otherwise, it should play exactly the same.

xx Unreleased Games: Mario & Wario

September 22, 2013, 12:29:52 am by Evan
I was looking through my archives this morning, and I remembered that I got these scans from a cereal box that had a contest that was giving away copies of the unreleased game, Mario & Wario. It appears that Nintendo was going to release the game in 1994, and even went as far as to make up a mock-up of the box.
