New prototype found for Cabbage Patch

Recommended Posts

Ok I've finished my page. I may have missed something since it's quite difficult to review ten different revisions of the same game in such a short time. If you see something I missed, please let me know.

Fascinating. It's quite rare to get such a thorough glimpse of a game through its development cycle.

I just downloaded the roms and played a few rounds of CPK for the 2600...

The game is surprisingly good, what a fantastic find!!!

 

Thank you VonGuard for sharing those roms with us without making a big drama about it! :thumbsup:

You need to change the date on the news page. It says April 1st for Cabbage Patch Kids.

 

 

So that thing is a spitting campfire? I thought it was a plant, lol.

Oops! Thanks for pointing that out.

 

I *guess* it's campfire. Your guess is as good as mine though.

nice find VonGuard

 

I was going to Laney that day as well, but ran out of time. I do not find much there, but you were there at the right time like I did over at the Ashby market when I found 12 protos.

 

nice job!

I think those blue blocks are actually puddles you are supposed to jump.

 

I was joking when I called them deadly blue blocks. I figured they were water puddles.

Anyhow I couldn't do anything with Sword and the Sorcerer. Damn did that demo ever look cool though!

Okay the latest Sword and the Sorcerer file runs but isn't this just a rolling demo - it doesn't seem to accept any inputs.

 

Also, how does one get past the broken Dragon 80 select screen?

Von... On your bllog, as regards Dragon 80 goes, you said...

UPDATE: Dragon-80 is, in fact, Dragonslayer for Colecovision. Zylon at QT3 found a movie of the Adam version.

 

Im not sure if Dragonslayer is the overseas title for the game, but it is clearly Dragon's Lair for the ADAM in the US

Sword and the Sorceror: Most likely a demo...I'd be very surprised if it's anything playable.

 

Dragon 80: I don't know, but "Dragon 80" is simply a beta of the ADAM version of Dragon's Lair on cartridge.

We're sure it's the ADAM version and not a Colecovision conversion, right?

Now that I think about it, wasn't there a version of Dragon's Lair on cart? I could have sworn I saw a pic of a CV Dragon's lair cart somewhere.

 

Found this at http://www.pixelpower.on.ca/dl/details.asp?id=18

There was talk of a Colecovision cartridge version of this game (since it runs on the basic Colecovision hardware) but it was not possible to fit all of the elements into the constraints of a cartridge. You can well imagine how much space it would take to implement all of the audio and graphics from the original--basically it was impossible at the time.

 

KNowing this, Id be interested to find out how many screens are on this version. The ADAM had 9

It has to be a conversion of some kind (and incomplete).

Man do I love this hobby! Very nice find! Who'd of thought I would be impressed with a Cabbage Patch Kids game. Wow!

 

Sword and Sorcere screen shot is just amazing. Never thought that one would surface!

 

 

On a side note, the Dragon's Lair screen shot posted is very interesting- who is the dude standing on the platform waiting for Dirk? I don't recall him in the Adam version. Looks like a werewolf! Lizard King maybe? A very tall Giddy Goon? Perhaps the Giant Bat from the arcade version?

 

Not sure- I can't get this one to work on my Adam emulator...

 

Regardless, great job and thanks for putting the roms out there! :D

Was Sword and the Sorceror supposed to be based on the movie?

What screen shot are you refering to?

There's a cloud that tries to blow you off the platform on the ADAM version.

 

But Ive never seen that thing. Must be unique to the proto.

In Dragon's Lair, I was able to jump on the platform, kill the "guy" ... quit the platform and enter the door and it re-loop to the beginning... :ponder:

 

Do I enter the wrong door? or it's simply the end of the demo?

:cool:

 

 

 

It's one amazing game, and to see a cycle of development like that is gold in itself.
