Prototype Info

Unused Music

MUSIC/STAB_00.MIB contains a short audio clip of the title screen music ending. This audio clip would have been used as music in one of game's mini-games.

In the PAL version, MUSIC/TRACK_14.MIB and TRACK_15.MIB contain an unused track that would have been used in one of the unused mini-games like Robot Boxing.

Crazy Cook

A mini-game only used in the European vetsion, in which players have to press and hold their Buzzer to fart and score points while the Robot Pirate is looking away. If he spots you, you'll get hit in the head and lose points. You have to score the most points to win. When the mini-game is over, it plays a short animation where the Robot Pirate farts and laughs before the foreground door closes. This mini-game is very similar to the Bubble Bath mini-game in Buzz! Junior: Jungle Party.

NTSC Leftovers

In the NTSC version, MOVN/45.PSS contains a demonstration video for Crazy Cook. However, the data for this mini-game has been removed from the NTSC release. The reasons for the removal are currently unknown.

Leftover Audio Clips

There are a few unused leftover voice clips from the announcer "Sarge" for this mini-game.

Unused Voice Clips

Hmmm...
To do:
There might be more.

Found within the game's data are a few unused voice clips recorded by Philip Maurice Hayes.

General

  • This audio clip is supposed to be an introduction to the game:
  • An early name for the mini-game "Octo-Beat" is simply named "Alien Beat"

Mini-Game Demonstration Retakes

There are a few retakes for the demonstration videos for a few mini-games.

  • Astro Blaster:
  • Saucer Shootout has a scrapped gameplay mechanic where if you shoot an alien, it'll jump onto your ship and try to eat you. Pressing the Buzzer will fry them with your shields. This mechanic was used in the January 12, 2007 prototype.
  • Space Jumping:

Unused Mini-Games

Robot Boxing

Robot Boxing

In the European version, LEVELS00/GAME_006 contains an unused mini-game named "Robot Boxing" or "Robot Rumble". The mini-game is likely fully complete in the final build as it's also seen in the prototype. You can access this mini-game by swapping the game's files with this mini-game, however, it doesn't work reliably as the game handles this mini-game as any other mini-game you've selected. So the results will be pretty buggy. You can access this mini-game with memory editing or a GameShark code, and it'll work as attended.

Rainbow Robots

Rainbow Robots

LEVELS01/GAME_011 contains a mini-game for the mysteriously named "Rainbow Robots" as listed in the prototype. This mini-game looks pretty simple, but it still doesn't work reliably just like with Robot Rumble. Accessing this level with memory editing or GameShark codes will get it to work as attended.
