Unused text


This build date seems to be loaded, but not visible, on the stage select menu. The date for the PAL version is 11-27.


The stage select only goes up to Treasure Chamber #5.

Unused Music

The game has four unused songs.

Unused Song 1

A track that sounds similar to the Treasure Chamber theme. Was likely to serve the same purpose originally.

Unused Song 2

A short, tense track. Possibly meant to be used in the Quarry and Carriage Chase levels, but the final game just reuses the "Danger" theme.

Unused Song 3

A longer, danger-indicating track. Interestingly, this track is used in the Genesis version, for the final level, Sea Battle.

Unused Song 4

A track that uses more than 5 sound channels, similar to the Opening theme. Given the final game has no dedicated credits theme, opting to reuse the Cove theme instead, it was likely to be used there.
