Notes

  • There's no copyright information when booting the game up. The prototype just boots right to the Playmates logo.
  • The Adrenalin Entertainment logo screen lacks a URL for the website.
  • In the prototype, the main vilians name is Ilian. In the final, the name is Algeroth. This name can be seen in the opening epilogue.
  • No trademade symbol on the title screen.
  • The gameplay demos after the title screen play back differently in comparison to the final version.
  • The character select screen is drastically different in the prototype. Mitch Hunter's portriat is drawn in the prototype, where the final uses a 3D prerender.
  • Only Mitch Hunter can be selected in the character select screen, even in 2 Player mode.
  • The prototype has a timer that advances to the next screen if you wait too long on the character select screen. In the final, you can sit indefinitely at the character select screen.
  • A level select is enabled by default after the character select screen.
  • The game goes right into a level in the prototype. In the final, there is a screen that describes the level before the game begins.
  • The first level of the game is "Mars - 1" in the prototype. In the final game, the first level is "Venus - 1".
  • The health meter doesn't have a percantage symbol in the prototype.
  • There is no meter for the ammo on the lower left corner of the screen in the prototype. It's likely that ammo is infinite.
  • There are no item crates in this prototype.
  • The music used in "Mars - 1" is different in comparison to the final.
  • There's no animated exhaust coming from the plants in the background in "Mars - 1" in the prototype.
  • "Mercury - 3" doesn't seem to be completeable as there's no boss. The boss that would be used for this map in the final game is actually used as the boss for "Pluto - 2".
  • The boss that would be used in "Pluto - 2" in the final game appears as a normal enemy in "Venus - 1".
  • The music used in "Pluto - 1" is different in comparison to the final.
  • "Nero" uses a completely different background in the prototype. The stage uses a much brighter palette in comparison to the final. It also uses different music.
  • There are no sound effects for the final boss.
  • After beating the final boss, the game goes back to the Playmates screen. There are no staff credits in this version of the game yet.
