The Cutting Room Floor research
  • Developed by Neon Studios and slated to be published by Infogrames, this game was canceled after failing to impress the license holder for Superman. Regulations that were imposed on the character prohibited the developers from making the game they wanted, and so this prototype was created as a compromise to meet some of the demands of the licensor.
  • Even though its present on the main screen, 'OPTIONS' and 'CREDITS' are inaccessible.
  • The 'PASSWORD' screen lacks functionality.
  • Pressing START while in game advances to the next level.
  • Certain levels are prone to crashing.
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable: Yes (as of September 17, 2023).
