Yep, would be cool to see some other prototypes appear. Apparently Atarisoft also worked on Joust, but it never got released.

Isn't Super Storm just the Atari 8-bit game Slime? I thought the rom was out there, but I guess not.

True, it's a pity, but speaking about TI 99 world, a lot of this prototype (or finished) software has survived the home computer crash and seen the day of light by now.
Thanks to hardware like the:
http://hexbus.com/TI...ter_Page.html#6
and there was another cartridge simulator box (GROM simulator?) used by TI marketing guys to promote the home computer. Those boxes featured most of the unreleased cartridges on disk.
Other software that was planned for a cartridge release was later released on disk.

We can be lucky that we have that
