A couple of Virgin Games SMS protos - Cool Spot / Super Off Road
Post Posted: Thu Jan 17, 2019 7:50 pm
A couple of Virgin Games SMS prototypes/loaners.

I've finally managed to dump the ROMs (non-JEDEC ST 27c1000 eproms so needed an adapter to swap a couple of pins (2 and 24) to read both halves)

Cool Spot is identical to the released game but Super Off Road is different.

The only obvious difference so far with Super Off Road is the conversion / dev credits are shown on the opening screen where as they are not on the released version. Not sure on any other gameplay differences.

Do you have a back story for them? They seem a long way from home.

An ex-Virgin UK employee now lives here in NZ and there were from his collection.
