JumpStart 1st Grade is a game in the JumpStart series released in 1995.

Unused Graphics

Title Screen

An alternative version of the title screen with multiple differences from the finished version, mainly for the logo.

School Exterior Graphics

There are two unused closeup shots of the outside of the school. Presumably, these would've served as a transition when the player clicks on the door to enter the school.

Classroom Graphics


Some unused closeup shots of two areas in the classroom, the bookshelf and the mouse hole.

There are also closeups of the aquarium tank and television seen in the classroom. In the game, clicking on either of these objects from the classroom screen causes an animation to play, but they can't be interacted with beyond that and are never seen up close.

Alternative Sprites

A few sprites for objects in the classroom, with relatively minor differences from their in-game counterparts.

Image Description
JumpStart1st1995-TankSprite.png An alternative sprite for the aquarium tank. The final version lacks the turtle and the outline around the rock.
JumpStart1st1995-TVsprite.png An alternative sprite for the television. The final version is green and has buttons and dials.
JumpStart1stGrade1995-UnusedVCR.png An alternative sprite for the VCR. The final version is blue and has buttons.

Reading Minigame Graphics

There are several unused graphics for the classroom's reading activity. These graphics are for each book's table of contents which display icons for each individual story. In the finished game, the icons are arranged so that there are an even number of icons on each page. These alternative graphics put as many icons as can fit on the left page (up to five), leaving the right page with less icons than the left.

Hallway Graphics

Some unused animation frames of doors opening, and more unused closeup shots.

Scrapped Recycling Area

One of the game's resource files, RF001.RSC, contains an image for a recycling room that isn't seen or mentioned at all in the finished game. Presumably, this was intended to be part of a recycling-themed minigame.
