We could only wish we were playing this right now... maybe...
This game was never completed and/or given a public release.
As a result of this, keep in mind that the developers might have used or deleted some of the content featured here, had the game actually reached store shelves.

Bounty Arms is a top-down action game that follows Chris and Rei as they battle an evil army... or it would've been if it hadn't been canceled for unknown reasons. The only part of it released to the public is a demo included in Volume 5 of Sony's Demo Demo PlayStation series.

The demo normally ends about halfway through the game's first level when the miniboss is defeated. The rest of the stage is present in a mostly playable state, but can only be accessed by disabling collision and preventing the miniboss from spawning with a memory editor.

Hmmm...
To do:
There's a lot more. Check this topic out for some of the below stuff in action.

Unused Boss

The first-stage boss is a robotic snake that swims in and out of a waterfall. The sprites of the waterfall being parted are not used during the fight.

Unused Sprites

Chris and Rei's weapons, the Relic Arms, function as whips, bullet-reflectors, and flamethrowers during the demo. Their weapons also work like Bionic Commando's grappling arms, but the only grapple points in the demo are normally inaccessible.

The crevasse and two rivers appear as obstacles for them to cross in the inaccessible portion of the stage, but the tree sprite is not used.

There are sprites for a continue countdown, but losing all of your lives in the demo boots you to the game over screen.

Game Over Screen

Look forward to the full version for the rest.

The demo was apparently meant to have a time limit, as evidenced by this unused screen. Like the regular Game Over screen, its background consists of the heroines' rear ends. How subtle of you, Data West.
