Moontra Kid Buggy is one of four games in the Moontra Kid compilation CD, which was created as part of an anti-drug campaign in Thailand. It is a racing game, in which the titular protagonist races against five other antropomorphic animals while avoiding getting high on various types of drugs.

Unused Graphics

Early Item Icons

Game\Buggy\Data\Item contains the graphics for the game's items, as well as the drugs scattered around the track. With this in mind, BG_CURE.tga and BG_SPEED.tga are earlier, more generic variations for the icons of the Milk and Nitro items. They might be leftovers from a different game, but this cannot be verified.

Backgrounds

While Moontra Kid Buggy does not use backgrounds in the menu screens, images for them can be found, including unique images for the title screen and the Help/Hall of Fame/Options screens. It's also worth noting that the Name Entry screen was going to use the same background as the loading screen.

  • The circuit is much bumpier overall, with a higher number of elevation changes.
  • MAP4.MWZ
  • Seems to be an exaggeratedly larger version of MAP41.MWZ.

Unused Music

Found at Game\STD_SCENE\Data\Menu.wav is an unused music track. It is likely a leftover from a different game.

Developer Messages

Found at offset 0x10C300 of the game's executable is a series of strings that form developer messages.

The first message seems to be an apology from the game's staff:

And the third message seems to be a love confession:

Momo Jimi Eiei Ngao Ngao Ud Ud
Hong.
