GraphicsIcon.png This game has unused graphics.


Sesame Street: Countdown is a redundant educational game designed to help kids learn their numbers.

Unused Text

Loaded with the other title screen's graphics is text for a "walk" mode. This would function like the run mode, but it is assumed you would move slower. Interestingly, the text is much skinnier than the one used on the title screen.

Unused Tiles

An unused ground tile.

Level Warp

A warp exists in the game that takes the player from level one to level three. Go to the rightmost window of the second building (pictured above), and then jump while crouching. The screen will fade out and you will be taken to the third level.
