Magic Carpet [Beta – PC, PSX, Saturn]

Magic Carpet is a shooter / action game developed by Bullfrog Productions and designed by Peter Molyneux, released in may 1994 for PC, Playstation and Saturn. As we can read on Wikipedia, in the game player plays a wizard (on a magic carpet) flying over water, mountains, and other terrain while destroying monsters and rival wizards.

Pcloadletter found an old beta screenshot of Magic Carpet in Edge magazine issue 1 (october 1993) with different hud and 3rd person view. The final game can only be played in first person view so we never seen the main character on the playing screen before (thanks to Aybe for the confirmation!). Also, it seems that the game was planned for the 3DO too..

Biosphere (Genewars) [PC – Beta]

Genewars is a real time strategy game released in 1996 for the PC and developed by Bullfrog Productions. The gameplay mixed some elements of strategy, along with minor terrain editing and cross-species breeding. Originally the project was started in 1991 as an Amiga CD32  game, known as “Biosphere” but it was later postponed and reworked for the PC with a different graphic style.

Some old previews can be found at the Amiga Magazine Rack!
