Montezuma’s Return is a action adventure game and the sequel to the original Parker Brothers game Montezuma’s Revenge. It was released for PC in 1998: a Nintendo 64 version was planned too, but it was cancelled for unknow reasons. A screenshot from the presumed N64 version was shown in an old issue of Nintendo Power, but it could have been taken from the PC version.

Acclaimsports Soccer, also know as Ultra Soccer, was a sport game that was in development at Probe Entertainment (the same team behind Xtreme-G) in 1997 / 1998 and was going to be published by Acclaim. The game was later cancelled, probably because of quality standards or because of problems with the Quagmire Engine.
