Hey guys.  Just picked up some loaner cartridges, here is something interesting.  A new WIP of Dumbo.  Some things that I notice right away are the lack of sound and different title screen.  The attract mode was still being implemented at this point as well.  Movement is different from the final and other WIP version (5/5/83).  There are some minor graphical differences too, like the bomb balloons.  The balloons come up in different patterns too, and the levels are called acts.  The scoring 10,000 to get PCN easter egg does not seem to be present either.

I also got an Atari loaner of Donkey Kong and Demon Attack.  Of course, nothing interesting to see here, same as the retail releases. 

 

I meant to take some pictures of the cartridges, that will have to wait until Sunday.  Anyway, enjoy, and please share your findings :)

Very respectable indeed!
btw, were these all found in the wild?
Or did they come from various sources over the years?

Thanks! Different sources over the years.  Wish I had the luck to find one in the wild!

Thank-you for sharing this!

 

It is most interesting (to me) when there are multiple versions of a game available, so we can see how the development cycle proceeded and the game evolved.
