Sprung was one of the Nintendo DS' launch titles, notable for being one of the few western-developed dating sims released commercially in the United States. The game puts you in the roles of both Becky and Brett, two twenty-somethings on vacation in the mountains with their wild cast of friends.

The game is generally text-based and can be considered both an adventure and a dating sim.

Unused Areas

An unused scene with the description - "You meet Kiki in a bar. Get drunk." can be found within the game's files. Another scene, "Love in the Lift", is also unused; this is likely an earlier version of Brett's first scene "Lift off!" and is shown in a screenshot in the game's booklet. It has the description "Learn to score with the ladies".

Unused Dialogue

The game has unused dialogue involving a successful method of inserting laxatives into Conor's drink in Becky's level, "Serving the Freezing Dish". The level's description mentions this as one of three successful ways to complete the level, but it is impossible in-game. This additional path also includes a new "golden line". There is also unused dialogue for items that are impossible for Becky or Brett to ever receive in their respective paths or never have an opportunity of using on certain characters.

Amorous Action (Becky)

Amorous Action is an item used by Brett in-game and has the effect of kissing whoever you're talking to. Becky never receives this item, but still has programmed dialogue for when it is used.

Erica

Erica is excited.

When used on Erica as Becky, she will say these things on each consecutive use until a GAME OVER screen is reached.

Becky, stop being weird!
No seriously, stop it!
Just give me a second to send a resort-wide text message...

[TAP TAP] Becky... is no longre...shoot, longer...into guys. Send.

With you out of competition the boys on the mountain are mine. Mine!

Alex

When used on Alex as Becky, she will say the following things all at once, but this won't lead to a GAME OVER screen.

Becky, what are you doing?

I don't do that!

Not since college...

Leanne

Leanne only lets you use it once, leading to an GAME OVER after the following dialogue.

You and your friend Brett are awful fresh! I don't think I'm gonna talk to you any more.

Shana

Shana also only lets you use it once, but has two lines of separated dialogue.

Sorry, but I'm not hip to the whole free-love thing.

I'm gonna go cleanse my aura of your tainted energy.

Kiki

Kiki doesn't say anything after the first use, but says this on each consecutive use.

Stop it!

Conor

Conor will say this and then continue the conversation.

Why are girls always all over me? Am I that irresistible?

Elliot

Elliot will say this and then continue the conversation.

Becky! What's gotten into you?

Brett

Brett will say this and then continue the conversation.

What was that for?

Sean

Sean will say this:

Oh Becks, I knew you would take me back!

Let's get out of here.

This text will follow and lead to a GAME OVER screen.

Getting back together with Sean means leaving the mountain.

Lucas

Lucas will say this:

Well I'm not gonna say no to that! Come here you hot little snow bunny!

This text will follow and lead to a GAME OVER screen.

You and Lucas are arrested for indecent exposure.

Danny

Danny will say this:

Becky Skye just kissed me! In public. I....I...I....I...

This text will follow and lead to a GAME OVER screen.

Great, now he's catatonic.

Rabbit's Foot (Becky)

Rabbit's Foot is an item that can be received by Brett in his first level. Becky never receives this item, but still has programmed dialogue for when it is used.

Alex

Who carries those? You're even weirder than I thought.

Kiki

Once I had a rabbit fur coat...

But it got ruined at the dry cleaners. Apparently it's really hard to get some stains out of rabbit fur!

Leanne

Leanne leads to an immediate GAME OVER after the following dialogue.

I used to have a pet rabbit named Peter...

Until that one winter when my family was snowed in and the roads were blocked for days...

I'm sorry..I just can't talk to you right now!

Shana

Shana continues the conversation after the following dialogue, but takes the Rabbit's Foot.

Oh, the poor little thing!

I'm going to give it a burial, Becky.

Conor

Using the item on Conor will initiate dialogue between Becky and Conor and then resume the normal conversation.

Conor:

Hey, I used to have one of these on my first set of car keys.

Candy Stevenson gave it to me after we...

Becky:

......

Conor:

Used it to pull the homecoming parade float.

Elliot

Hey, cool, I always wanted one of those!

Brett

Brett doesn't take the item despite his dialogue.

Hey cool, thanks!

Sean

Using the item on Sean will initiate a conversation between Becky and Sean and then resume the normal conversation.

Hoping to get lucky, Becks?
Yes.
Really?
But not with you.
Oh.

Lucas

So if I rub this the right way will it help me get lucky?

Danny

Danny takes the item upon giving it to him.

Will this make me lucky?

Unused Music

SEQ_apartmentsad_1

Completely different from the other Apartment music in the game, it remains unused in both the game and the music section. Its name indicates that it was to be used when characters were displaying sad emotions.

SEQ_apartmentsad

An alternate version of the former. Features slightly different instrumentation.

SEQ_skiliftdisappoint

Intended for disappointment on the Ski Lift, evidenced by its name. Features completely different instrumentation from the final Ski Lift themes.

SEQ_skishopbored

Intended as a boredom theme in the Ski Shop, evidenced by its name. Features completely different instrumentation from the final Ski Shop themes.

Unused Image

Sprungcapturetheheart.png

Sprung's Image Gallery section has 52 images that can be unlocked by collecting items throughout the game and completing scenes. With normal gameplay, however, only 51 images can be unlocked. This image, titled "Capture the Heart", is completely unobtainable without the use of cheats. It was likely meant for a late scene in Brett's path.
