Spellcraft is an unreleased Super Nintendo conversion of the original Spellcraft RPG / Strategy Game that was released for the PC in 1992. This port was in development by Ybarra Productions / Ascii and as we can read on Wikipedia, it is very different than the PC version as it focuses on adventuring instead of strategy. A playable, almost complete ROM of Spellcraft SNES was somehow leaked online and it should be easily findable through Google. The game was probably cancelled for quality issues.
Thanks to Celine for the contribution! (Scan from Super Power issue #7 and #12)
Created by Team Storm at Interactive Studios (the creators of Glover N64), Dragon Sword is a cancelled hack and slash game (similar to Gauntlet Legends) that was in development in 1997 / 1998 for the Nintendo 64. Sadly, this game was never finished because of some issues with the publisher.
Dragon Sword 64 was in danger to be lost and forgotten forever, but thanks to an anonymous collector, a playable beta was shared online and now the community can help to preserve it.
If you loved Gauntlet Legends on the Nintendo 64 in multiplayer, probably you are going to have fun with Dragon Sword too. Before playing this beta, please keep in mind that it’s an unfinished, unreleased Nintendo 64 game that was in development more than 12 years ago.
Obviously it has lots of bugs and we still miss some of the planned content, but for what it is, Dragon Sword is a nice game, especially if you can play it in coop with a friend.
Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis is a Puzzle Game developed by NST as a sequel to the GBA MvsDK, a follow up to the Game Boy Donkey Kong game. A playable beta demo of MvsDk2 was available at various gaming conventions, from where it was saved on the DS and then shared online.
Upaluppa noticed many differences in this beta demo, as wrote in his videos on Youtube:
– The music sounds quite different
– There are hearts instead of big coins
– The small coins are rotating
– Mushroom Mayhem is called Mushroom Kingdom
– The status screen is completely different
– There’s a level map available by pressing Select
After that awesome Ocarina of Time debug ROM (that still had some beta / prototype areas in it!), the lovely Zelda-hacker Cendamos was able to buy and share a Debug version of Zelda: Majora’s Mask! Will there be any unused or beta rooms still hidden in there? We’ll have to wait and see what those zelda-hackers will be able to find.
You can read more info about the Majora’s Mask Prototype / Debug ROM in the Zelda 64 Forum. If you can feel the love of this release and want to help Cendamos to repay his debt after this important acquisition, share your paypal donations to [email protected]
In the meantime, here’s a nice video of the Majora’s Mask Debug:
Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler’s Green is a FPS based on the George Romero zombie horror movie Land of the Dead, that was developed by Brainbox Games (now Digital Extremes) and published in 2005 by Groove Games, for PC and the original XBOX. As we can read on Mobygames, the project was originally developed as a singleplayer PC game called “Day of the Zombie”, which had a 4 months development cycle and was ready for October 2004 release.
Day of the Zombie was shown to Universal Studios around the time the movie Land of the Dead was being filmed in Toronto, Canada (where Groove Games is headquartered) – this is how the license was secured. The game was ported to Xbox, multiplayer functionality was added and environments were added to tie the game to the movie.
In April 2009, a Youtube user posted a video from Day Of The Zombie, with a link to download a playable beta of the game. This leaked version is very similar to Land of the Dead, but it’s currently unknown if it’s really the original Day of The Zombie project or just a mod of the released game.
