  • The map has received some updates from the June 15th prototype, but still does not match the final - all three maps are included above for comparison.
    • Like the June 15th build, all buildings have green rooves, as opposed to some of the buildings having blue rooves and the other building having an orange roof.
    • One of the islands near to the cannon was made much larger in the release version - in this version, it's the same size as it was in the June 15th prototype.
    • The area near Jacques' portal is much more well-lit in the final game, though the lighting had changed somewhat since the June 15th version.

Dark Passage

  • While the level model seems to have been mostly changed since June 15th to match the final one, much of the level's textures and lighting is incomplete still. All three maps are included above for comparison.
    • The lighting and colouring is significantly more basic and less varied, and all indoor floors use a more basic texture than the patterned look of the final.
  • There's a rim surrounding the platform where the exit vortex resides in this version.

Lofty Castle

  • For some reason, this level contains 401 gems instead of 400. As noted on the main page, this can cause an unusual glitch where the player's completion percentage will jump to 100% once they've collected the rest of the gems, even if they're yet to collect all the dragons.
  • The waterfalls aren't as bright as they appear in the final game.
  • Strangely, it appears as though the texture on one of the polygons on one of the building's rooves was incorrectly rotated in the final game, yet it appears correctly here.

Haunted Towers

Jul 18 Aug 12 Final

  • The rooves of the first two rooms are modelled differently.
  • As seen from above, a couple of the polygons atop the walls in the last section are missing - this is likely a leftover from when there was an additional room to access (e.g. in the June 15th build), as one of these polygons would not have been present at the time.


  • A small amount of the lighting was changed very slightly.

Icy Flight

Jul 18 Aug 12 Final

  • The lighting in this level is vastly different from the final version.
  • A few platforms seem to have slightly changed in texture.
