A prototype of Mr. Tuff for the SNES.


  • Earliest known prototype.
  • Developed by SCI (The Sales Curve) and was possibly going to be published by Ocean. It was scheduled to be released on the SNES, Sega CD, and Sega Mega Drive. The game was actually in a fairly complete state in the middle of 1994, but wasn’t picked up by anyone until later that year when Ocean considered picking it up for a release in March 1995. The various versions of the game were previewed throughout 1994 and were even reviewed in 1995 by DieHard GameFan magazine. The game was still teased throughout 1995, but completely disappeared near the end of the same year. Two prototypes have been dumped of this game. The first known prototype to be dumped was released sometime during the early BBS days by ANTHROX under the release archive name ATX-TUFF, which was released sometime around March 4th 1995. A second earlier prototype was dumped and released by Lost Levels/SNESCentral. The prototype that was dumped and released by the scene was unfortunately modified from its original dump and includes some edits to various parts of the ROM. For instance, the group took it upon themselves to replace every name on the score ranking table with shoutouts to various suppliers and BBS lines.
  • Build date found in the ROM.
