Wolfang is an action game / side scrolling shoot ‘em up that was in development by Seibu Kaihatsu (?) for the original Playstation and it would have been published by Bird (?). There are not many info about this, maybe the game was released under a different name and a by different publisher? (even if it’s not listed in Sibu Kaihatsu’s games list) If you recognize this game or have some more info, please let us know!

Dinosaur Legend (Kyouryuu Densetsu) is a cancelled NES / Famicom game that was in development by HAL Laboratory, a famous developer that gave Nintendo popular series as Kirby and Super Smash Bros. They created many games for the Famicom/NES, but one of them was never release: Dinosaur Legend. It was going to be a curious RPG where you travel with a dinosaur to save the world. It had a game mechanic where the dinosaur steadily evolves (could it have been a Pokemon Ante litteram?).

It is currently unknown why the game was never published but you can see a lonely screenshot below.

Flux was basically a very sophisticated 3D puzzle game involving a salesman in a suit as its main character, that was in development for the Playstation and PC. The player had to find his way through a maze of cubic rooms that could be flipped in 90 degree angles by pushing switches on the walls. The game was in development by Pulse Entertainment and was picked up by Microsoft but canned after awhile for unknown reasons..

Demon Dinosaurs, also known as Dino Racer, was a bizarre racing game similar to Outrun in development by Codemasters around 1994 for the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive. Bizarre I said because it was set in prehistorik age and the racers were cave men and dinosaurs. It is unknown why the game was never released.

Ghosts ‘n Goblins 64 is a cancelled action game that was in development by Capcom for the N64. In November ’96 Capcom invited the press to check out their upcoming lineup for the next year. Among the games shown there was a new Ghosts ‘n Goblins game for Nintendo 64. From what Neil West, Next-Generation Magazine’s editor-at-large present at the event , described we known that the prject was still in a early state of development but it was already clear that Mario 64 was a big source of inspiration as happened for many games in that period like Konami’s Goemon 64. After that event nothing more was shared with the public and the game was quietly cancelled by the publisher maybe because the N64 performance in the japanese market resulted relatively weak.
