Firearm [SNES – Cancelled]

Firearm is a cancelled 2d action game developed by Malibu Interactive which  was planned to be released for Snes and Genesis. Nothing much is known about it, apart that it was based on the eponymous comic. In 2010 what it looks to be a test build of Firearm was uploaded on the internet. This version includes only two stages and it is barely playable. It seems that the game was dropped very early.

The Strangers [Sega CD – Cancelled]

The Strangers was going to be a one to one fighting game based on characters from Malibu comic books ( plus three new characters made specifically for this game). On EGM issue 59 there is a small preview of the game in a very early state. The Strangers probably was never released because the developer, Malibu Interactive, closed down around 1994 ( the preview is from mid 1994 ).

Dinosaurs for Hire [MD GEN – Beta]

As we can read in Wikipedia, Dinosaurs For Hire is a run and gun / beat ’em up game published by Sega and developed by Malibu Interactive for the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive. The game is based on an american comic and features Archie, Lorenzo and Reese as the main playable characters while Cyrano (a pterodactyl) shows up from time to time to give mission briefings but is not playable. In the beta version Cyrano was available as a playable character, as seen in old preview screenshots, but for some reasons they decided to remove this option.

Prime [SNES – Cancelled]

Prime is a cancelled beat ’em up that was developed by Malibu Interactive for the Super Nintendo. The game was based on the comic of the same name and maybe for the low popularity of the character, Prime was never finished. A beta version of Prime was leaked online and it contains 5 playable levels. You can read a deeper article about the game and download the beta on SNES Central!
