RE: Super River Raid and Kaboom

 

I remember being at CES and Activision announced 16bit remakes of their classic lineup, which included Pitfall (Became Pitfall the Mayan Adventure), Kaboom!, and River Raid. Being a huge fan of these games, I couldn't resist getting more details from them, and I was told that they were being shown by appointment. ??? I wasn't press at that time, so I begged and pleaded and got nothing. The games remained on my mind since then, and I would get scraps of details. I saw mentions in gaming mags, met people along the way who worked on them. I found out one year that they had indeed reached a playable stage. I think some of the original Activision programmers had a hand in them. However, every lead reached a dead end. Someone has to have these roms.

 

Back then, I asked the question that would be on any respectable Kaboom fan's mind: Would Kaboom use some kind of paddle controller (The only way to play it), and I got a confused look. If Kaboom would support the SNES Mouse, I was prepared to make a paddle :)

I've got both Kaboom! and River Raid here on floppy. The Kaboom isn't very good. River Raid too, was OK at best.

 

Both got killed because the developers couldn't push the SNES boundaires with either one. If I recall correctly, Tom told me that the River Raid developer was a real PITA to deal with as well, and that the he and they never saw eye-to-eye on design.

 

Sgt Saunders Combat was just a Japanese SNES game that Acti was reviewing at one point in time.

Any plans to release those games as a bonus or something on a future title? Crummy or not, they could be pretty interesting to fool around with.

Awesome, Ken. Just knowing they got saved from extinction makes me happy. Bummer they didn't turn out very well, though. Just goes to show that games more often than not get cancelled for a good reason. :)

Wasn't there a prototype of FF5 that never saw the light of day when Squaresoft skipped over it and released FF6 here as FF3?
