Radio Flyer is a cancelled flying game that was in development by Ocean in 1992 for the Super Nintendo. It seems that the project was based on the film with the same name from Columbia Pictures, in which 2 young brothers escape their chaotic family life with dreams of flying. Inspired by a local legend, they attempt to build a working airplane from their ordinary red wagon.
Celine was able to find a couple fo screenshot from the game in Console Mania #13 (an italian magazine), PlayerOne #23 and EGM #25. Looking at those we can speculate that Radio Flyer could have been somehow similar to Pilot Wings SNES. The project was canned for unknown reasons but as Evan G from SNES Central has wrote, it could be because the movie was a flop / sucked.
Thanks to Celine for the contribution!
Maybe it was cancelled because the movie was about child abuse and rape!

Thanks Stranno! :) I will add your scan in the gallery ASAP
Even though I haven’t seen Radio flyer in a long time, I didn’t think it was terrible. But aside from that, I’m surprised to find that a video game based on the film was in the works before it got cancelled.

Hmmm…this wouldn’t be the first game to suffer this fate. The Shadow’s SNES version was also canned for similar reasons but there has to be a build somewhere…
