Well, there's the level select code. Change the last two digits to change your starting stage. 7E0B7306 will take you to Shade Man's stage, though that seems to be the only level in the beta that can't be accessed through normal means, besides this unfinished level hybrid mentioned.

EDIT: Oh, wait. The level hybrid is talking about is Spring Man's stage.

Actually, that football game does have some text in it:

In the cart header ($7FB0), the title is partly overwritten. We can see it ends in "RSDEBUG1"
at about $C200:
"Blast Technology by Steve AguireSculptured Software (c)1994"
$D600:
"MY OH MY MYOPIA! IT KEEPS AWAY UTOPIA
WAY TO GO"

About $10300, it looks like some kinda source code snippet.

WATCHDOG? DIPSWITCH? COIN_COUNTERS? Source code from an unknown wrestling arcade game? O_o

If I had to guess, I'd go with "NFL ALL-STARSDEBUG1"
Great to find that it was Sculptured Software - nice searching.

Agreed. Nice work, KingMike. Excellent guesswork on Evan's part, too.

A friend and I toyed around with the Rockman 7 proto using the level select code. Variables 04 and 07 seem to be placeholders Turboman and Burstman where you warp in but continue to warp down forever as there's no ground. The non-working Burstman stage is probably why Slashman is taking his spot in the level select screen. Also, anything after variable 08 makes the game lock up on a black screen. Springman's music is used as placeholder music along with Turboman's music (which is odd seeing as how his stage isn't even in the proto in any form). Also, according to my friend, the miniboss in Shademan's stage isn't used anywhere in the final (I haven't played too much of the final version so I'm taking her word for it) nor is the sky background in the area after it (which is also very different according to my friend). Pretty neat stuff.

That (also completely generic) miniboss was luckily replaced by the giant pumpkin in the final.

Funny how Shademan's has enemies from the seemingly empty Springman level.

That enemy appears all over the place, however one of Turboman's enemies is there and his stage isn't in the proto at all.

Next up, I have released the prototype of Super Buster Bros. As far as I can tell, it is identical to the released version.

Kingmike, that source code snippet looks like X86 assembly (not 65816), so perhaps it's the old "pad ROMs with whatever's in the PC' memory" thing.

I knew the source code wasn't 65816. I was thinking x86 or 68K.
Thanks.

Haha...did anyone else notice the Famicom(s) hanging at the beginning of Junk Man's stage? =D

Oh hell yeah, the game was going to have the killer mice with face masks and axes. I love that cartoon!

I would fall off my chair if someone found a rom of the prototype Ghouls 'N Ghosts 3, an early version of Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts:

Although those early screenshots of Super Ghouls and Ghosts are great, what does that have to do with the topic at hand: prototype rom releases of Lost Levels?

Nothing, he just has an unhealthy obsession with Ghouls 'n Ghosts.

I should hope so. I think you're late to the party on that one bro (MAN THAT'S SO OLD).
