Does anyone have any leads on the 1989 Electrocoin arcade version of Mr. Do that was reported as having 99 levels?

Is the (possibly unfinished) code out there somewhere in the ether?

First I've heard of this.  Weird.

Would it be a complete ending if all 99 were completed? No one will ever know. I know it is only 10 unique levels then repeats at a higher difficulty.

Apparently Do Green Bananas will be as legendary as the Crazy Otto screenshot with the ROMS no where to be found.

The ROMs for Crazy Otto do exist. There's a story on why they didn't get release. The guy who had them was about release them some years back but at the last minute feared NAMCO would sue him or some such didn't released them. The only things we got from that were some movies and screenshots.

I'd still love to try Marble Madness II but it's readily apparent they'll never get released.

Don't be so sure about that.

Don't be so sure about that.

I'm actually quite sure about it.  There have been a ton of false leads, and some promising developments that ultimately went nowhere, but the game has yet to be found.  I'm sure it exists somewhere however, too much evidence points to a functioning proto out there.  

 

If it has been found then it's not by one of the 'prototype regulars' as it has been kept off the radar quite successfully.

I know a lot that the rest of you don't but this is when I shut down and shut up.

All I'm gonna say is don't give up hope on the Green Machine.

It's possible it's been found I guess.  There's too much evidence that it existed at one point.

Well I could say that I know how to split the atom but would anyone be interested?  You probably know a lot about the Hulk in general but in the 2600 field you are probably lacking? ;)

Interesting story.
Back to the original post here though, I actually have two different Mr. Do boards.
Ive kept them both all these years only because there was something different among the them.
Ill have to check them out and report back.
Also dont forget about Neo Mr. Do for neogeo. That one has multiple levels & an actual ending.
