Trivia for the game Stardust

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 05:04:11 +0000

Demo versions

An early demo version of the game offered things that did not make it into the final version. For starters there were new types of coins that appeared after destruction of the rocks: C and M. The latter was a substitute for the supply ship that in the final game delivers the missile weapons. There was also a huge difference in a tunnel level section. Its shape was triangular and as such, it can not be seen in the final version of the game. During the flight there are also "shield" coins that can be collected. It hints at the idea that the creators of the game were planning to refill the shield's energy that can be depleted by collisions. Unfortunately nothing like this is possible in the final game. -- mailmanppa (2787)



Trivia for the game Skidmarks

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 05:04:11 +0000

Available cars due to memory limitations

Running the game on regular A500 with 0,5 MB Chip and 0,5 MB Slow will give you only 1 type of car at once on track and there is no music. The same happens on A500+ and A600 (both 1 MB Chip). But:
  • A500 with 0.5 MB Chip and 1 MB Fast gives you 3 types of cars at once on track but still no music
  • A500 with 1 MB Chip and 0.5 MB Slow gives you 3 types of cars at once on track and music
  • A500 with 0.5 MB Chip and 1 MB Fast and 0.5 MB Slow gives you 4 types of cars at once on track and music (maximum possible option)
  • A1200 (2 MB Chip) gives you 2 types of cars at once on track and music.
  • A1200 (2 MB Chip and 1 MB Fast) gives you 4 types of cars at once on track and music (maximum possible option).

Trivia for the game Prince of Persia

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 05:04:11 +0000

Development

The game was created by disassembling the original Apple II binaries, before Jordan Mechner made his is original source code public. According to mr. Mechner no-one in 1989 was willing to do a C64 port since the platform was too old.

Trivia for the game Tribes: Aerial Assault

Sat, 7 Jan 2017 03:04:32 +0000

Freeware release

In late October 2015, current Tribes rights owners Hi-Rez Studios released Aerial Assault as freeware, alongside the other Tribes games (including the already freeware Starsiege: Tribes and Tribes 2) and the two EarthSiege games. This makes it the first and so far only commercially released PlayStation 2 game to become freeware. -- Lance Boyle (1347)

Robix was made in a week and released through Frédérick Raynal's father's computer store where Raynal was working at the time. The game sold about 80 copies. -- Kabushi (167825)



Trivia for the game Pocket Monsters Ao

Sat, 7 Jan 2017 03:04:31 +0000

Virtual Console Alterations

Pocket Monsters Ao and its counterpart versions were rereleased for the 3DS Virtual Console to celebrate the Pokémon franchise's 20th anniversary in 2016. Since the Nintendo 3DS isn't compatible with the long-obsolete Game Link Cable, these releases use the system's local wireless features for link trades and battles. Additionally, several attack animations have been toned down for the safety of players with photosensitive epilepsy or other sensory conditions. -- Harmony♥ (13874)



Trivia for the game Boku no Natsuyasumi

Fri, 6 Jan 2017 14:21:24 +0000

August 32nd

A glitch can be triggered that forces the game to continue to August 32nd, which causes the graphics and audio to become distorted. Because some of the resulting texture distortions can end up being rather disturbing, the glitch has gained a level of notoriety on websites such as 2channel.

Release delay

The game was originally scheduled for a summer 1999 release, but the producers insisted on the inclusion of a fishing minigame. The extra time taken for programming meant the original deadline was missed. Since Sony did not want to release a summer vacation game in the fall, the release was pushed back to summer of 2000. -- Harmony♥ (13874)



Trivia for the game Winnie the Pooh: Home Run Derby

Wed, 4 Jan 2017 14:45:56 +0000

Meme

In 2012 and 2013, the game became a meme on numerous Japanese and English imageboards due to its incredibly high difficulty, which players noted to be at odds with its presumed target audience of young children. The meme has been covered by publications such as NBC Sports, Kotaku, and Know Your Meme. -- Harmony♥ (13874)



Trivia for the game Rays

Wed, 4 Jan 2017 03:49:13 +0000

Compilation Version

Re-released as "The Yellow Door" in compilations. The brief desert scene in the beginning of the game is replaced by an alternate scene where you have to walk through a yellow door for the game to begin. -- Joe Pranevich (280)



Trivia for the game The Prince of Tyndal

Wed, 4 Jan 2017 03:49:13 +0000

Confusion over developer

"Computer and Video Games" magazine, issue 68 for June 1987, lists Tom Frost at the author of this game however that is not given in the game itself or its manual. "World of Spectrum" credits this game to Gladys and Gerry Officer. -- Joe Pranevich (280)
