We’ve released a prototype of Galaxy 5000: Racing in the 51st Century for the NES! Some differences which are noticeable right off the bat can be seen within the graphics for the titlescreen, this prototype contains a blue logo and purple planet instead of the final game’s red logo and orange planet. The sprite work for the title is also much more detailed in the final game, these differences also apply to the game’s scrolling backgrounds. According to the eprom sticker on the CHR ROM, it’s revision 7.0 as the written checksum matches the dump. Another thing of note can be found by looking at the header, we see “06/28/90 David”, which confirms the date of the build.
