Floigan Bros. (Prototype) (Jan 21st 2001)
- - togemet2

This is a prototype of Floigan Bros by Visual Concepts. It contains watermarks of the build date (Jan 21, 2001) and the Visual Concepts logo. Instead of the game’s title in the header, it uses the default “THIS IS A SAMPLE DISK FOR USE INTHE OFFICE ONLY / DO NOT SELL / DO NOT CARRY OUT FROM THE OFFICE”. It also contains various bugs which do not appear in the retail version.

Glover (USA) (Prototype)
- - togemet2

This is a prototype of Glover by Hasbro Interactive. The back of the cartridge reads “Sept Build 35” in worn down sharpie. It was later revealed by Ozidual (who works closely with the current rights holder for the game), that this specific build is from September 3rd. Curiously, this cartridge was obtained by someone who had attended a tradeshow where the game was shown off.

Differences within are very minor, with the most noticeable one being that the main menu is much brighter than it is in the final game, as seen below.

Title - Proto
Title - Final
2-Up Swipe Onion Skin

Despite being a pre-release build, the brighter menu design in this prototype was used in every other version of Glover, excluding US rev 0.

South Park Rally (Europe) (Prototype) (1)
- - togemet2

This is a prototype of South Park Rally by Acclaim. Some differences that could be noted are as follows: Scrolling through the character menu is slower, checkpoints are referred to as “grids”, Mayor McDaniels introduces each race in the top left corner of the screen (much like the Windows version), and the countdown is translucent and green instead of red. In addition to these, there are also minor graphic, text, and menu differences.

- - togemet2

This is a development cartridge containing a retail build of F-Zero X, however what makes this cartridge special is that it contained an overdump for a very early version of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time from around the time of Nintendo’s SpaceWorld 1997 tradeshow. The data for Ocarina of Time contains maps, textures and text, were are all fully intact. Unfortunately, all character models, code, and audio were overwritten by F-Zero X. This cartridge was acquired from a former Nintendo employee.
