McDonald's: Golden Arches Adventure would have been the first McDonald's-related video game in stores, beating another one by five years (which didn't even make it to America). The game was to have Ronald McDonald in a spaceship defending giant Golden Arches from aliens who were trying to eat them; the aliens could be temporarily sated with McDonald's food (though certain aliens would only eat certain foods) and Ronald could get pieces to rebuild the Golden Arches, but he had to fly down to the ground to pick them up and fly back up to feed the aliens.
This build, dated June 6, 1983, is unplayable and just consists of a static image of the company's "m" insignia - mainly because it's just bolted onto a copy of Tutankham.
Gaze upon the pixelated arches!

The letters A-F, T, W, and V are present in the code, along with a full number set. They were not present in Tutankham.
Stored at the end of the ROM, and refers to the game's developer (Parker Brothers) and programmer (Dave Engman)...though this could just be a Tutankham leftover.
