Unused Graphics

A set of play button graphics originally intended for the sign-in screen. In the final release, the player clicks on a hammer to start the game, effectively taking the place of a play button.

A play button intended for the lower-left corner of the certificate screen. In the final release, the print button occupies this spot instead, and the play button was redesigned into a rock that says 'Play Again' and is displayed in the lower center part of the screen.
