Proto:Barkley, Shut Up And Jam: Gaiden/Item Differences

This is a sub-page of Proto:Barkley, Shut Up And Jam: Gaiden.

Nearly every item, weapon, and armor in-game was changed in some way. Something worth noting is that some armor and shields leftover from RPG Maker 2003 are still in the prototype.


Every weapon that the characters start out with adds no power in the final.


Nearly every instance of Basketball was shortened to B-ball in the final game. Also, the Shimmerglobe can be equipped, where as in the final, it is fused with the Hell B-ball as soon as you defeat the 'boss' of Cuchulainn's Tomb.
