Dora explores several fairy tales.

Unused Graphics

I'm already playing the game.

splash00.smk, a screen probably leftover from a demo.

Sold!

splash01.smk, obviously a placeholder screen.

Dorafairytale Gi2 bg01.png

A crudely drawn crank box in a cave.

It also has a cranking animation called gi2_crank00.smk.

Yahoo! Avalanche

For some reason, the game has a lot of leftover resources from Avalanche, another game by ImaginEngine. All the graphics are there.

The .ini file is still there too, titled classic.ini.
