Asterix in Egypt - beta
Post Posted: Sat Nov 03, 2012 11:48 pm
I received this message from icecaap:

Hi and good day!

We are 2 users from Spain, Icecaap and Lamoscato.

We would like to talk about an interesting subject related to the Master System in the forum, but I am recent user in SMS Power (icecaap) and I can not create a topic. We expose the subject to tell us your opinion.

Some time ago, Icecaap know a beta version for Sega Master System from the videogame Asterix (“Asterix in Egypt”).

You can see all about this content here:

As you can be appreciated, the beta version is very different from the original version:

About the information of that beta versión, Icecaap found it from the following sites:

And there are some info in the Numbers HS01 and 7 from the Megaforce Magazine:

We are talking about this on this Spanish forum:

Congratulations for the good work!!

Greetings :) and thanks for your time!

So was the game originally meant to have storyline related to Asterix and Cleopatra?

And was Egypt to be last level - logical as it's furthest in the map?

Well... The most important thing here is to find the beta cartridge to back up the ROM.

Anyway, beta games are always very difficult to find, and this is a case when it's even more difficult to find because this beta is very old!!

I think there's some people around here dreaming to put their hands in this beta... lol

I want to tell 3 new curiosities that I discovered about this beta...

1. There may be 2 or more beta versions.
In the picture "different-structure.jpg" you can see 2 captures of the same place in the game, but the structure of the wall is different.

2. Discovered a new stage in the beta, the forest stage.
Is very similar to the final version (see "stage-discovered.png"). At the first, I thought it was a capture of the final version forest, but both versions are different.

3. Discovered unused item.
I discovered inside the final version rom at address 0x25ed3 (see "unused-item.png"), is an alternative potion, maybe this was used in the beta version, I don't know.
