  • An early build dated four months prior to the final build.

    • This is also the case for the title screen. Additionally, the copyright placement on the title screen is slightly different.
  • The game has no music or sound effects.

  • The character seemingly cannot be changed on the character select screen.
  • The opening animatic is not present.
  • Mickey lands in a slightly different position on the tower in Beanswick as he does in the final. Addiitonally, the character nearby is absent.
  • A large number of sprites and rooms are extremely unfinished and different.
  • Text boxes are often a different shade to their final appearance.
  • Some scenes are replaced with blank screens with the name of the scene on them.
  • Challenges often differ from their usual goal.
  • Some challenges and rooms appear to not be present at all.
