    Prototype? But, wasn't the actual game already released?

    I don't understand either... I guess it's because the rom didn't work on most devices.

    yes, but that doesn't mean a prototype isn't still interesting - after all, people are still finding and dumping NES prototypes. this might have stuff in it that was cut out of the final game, or hidden debug modes enabled, or early versions of things that became something else entirely. or other stuff!

    or, it might have none of those, and just be an unfinished translation of the american version to the various european languages.

    either way, still worth dumping.

    Prototype is an early development version like a beta. An incomplete product.

    The final USA version has been released, the European final hasn't.

    Prototype
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    A prototype is an original type, form, or instance of some thing serving as a typical example, basis, epitome, or standard for other things of the same category.

    In other words:
    A Prototype is mostly a first make of a thing (an example) to see how it looks and what can be imporved to come to the final product.

    Maybe a 4-player co-op mode? =D
    And download play!

    (I know I'm just dreaming but...)

    Maybe we can do something with this if there's anything interesting.

    I think all of the levels are accessible from the beginning, so its one for those who want to see them but lack the skills.

    The PSX and PS2 scene had alot of betas released. I'm glad we're seeing NDS ones.

    Very nice, thanks for posting.

    Hello. I tried this out and have a question, please. When any of you played this, was there any sound?

    BUMP. Did anybody who played this get any music in-game? I only got sound effects.
    Were Tunnels 2 and 3 beatable? It seems, I can't progress past the first wall. Is the final boss beatable?
