Question About Kyphus

Recommended Posts

But was it actually confirmed to be the actual game or not and who has it now? ;)

I think it's within reason to make a Kyphus type game. Probably easier than Treasures of Tarmin.

..although the prototype ROM doesn't give me much clues tp the overall gameplay. It looks like it might have been meant to play like Gates of Dawn?

Interesting. Where did you find that artwork?

 

It was donated to me by someone who scanned it from a magazine.

That leaves only Squoosh that we need artwork for. Any chance that same magazine would have it?

 

In any case, thanks to all who find these gems and contribute them to the community!

i wish someone would finish one of these Apollo games. Pompeii looked nice.

 

Too bad homebrewers don't pick up and finish some obscure games.

 

Well, this has piqued my interest but there doesn't seem to be much info on how the game was supposed to play.

RIP, Pat. Died way too young.

 

Thanks for the info!

Yeah, he was killed in an automobile accident near Seattle involving a logging truck.

 

His former wife Dale died of cancer back in 2007.

His kids are still around. I believe someone was in contact with one of his daughters at one point, but she didn't know much about Apollo.

Are those real? Why would Apollo make cartridge labels for games that hadn't been completed yet? Mockup boxes for advertisements sure, but did they ever show mockup cartridges in any ad or at a show?

Who knows but they look pretty real to me. The seller also had unused labels from other games by various publishers listed for sale, and appears to be someone with no apparent connection to or knowledge of video games who primarily deals in sports cards and other assorted oddities. Such a person is highly unlikely to attempt faking something like this.

I suppose so, but it's still all kinds of odd. That is unless they were further along than we thought.
