Unknown Universal Prototype Identified!

Recommended Posts

I don't know if anyone saw the news on my site, but the programmer for the Unknown Universal Prototype contacted me and told me a bit more about it. The game was to be based off the TCF movie Heart Like a Wheel (I think Greg2600 guessed that many years ago) and was almost complete before being cancelled. That's one more unknown prototype identified, now if we could only figure out what that Activision sliding puzzle game was supposed to be called...

That game looks cool; it's too bad it was canceled.

 

Typo:

 

"There are three different colored computer components to race against (yellow, blue, and red), each representing the level of difficult. You will have to race the blue and yellow cars a few times in order to see the red car."

 

Shouldn't that say difficulty?

Yes, I'll fix that.

 

It could possibly be called Rock N Bolt since a sliding puzzle came out for the Colecovision.

 

No, it's not even remotely close. I think it was an original concept that just never went anywhere.

It explains the H on the sticker.

 

Nice work!

So awesome. I dunno why but if an Atari 2600 game is based on a movie it's just 1000% cooler in my book. Glad you got this confirmed! Now I have to check out the film.
