Unused Graphics

To do:
This section needs to be entirely rewritten, as many of these "prototype" sprites are actually the final sprites, and vice versa. It would also seem that Odie uses different sets of sprites during different points in the game.

Present among the title screen graphics are several earlier sprites of the enemies and characters.

Garfield's sprites went through minor changes, mostly shifts of pixels.

The spider enemy had its legs pointing in different directions and lacked the web.

Odie was mostly grey and had narrower eyes.

The knife-throwing Ali Cat lookalike was completely redrawn.
