A prototype of Mike Ditka's Big Play Football for the NES.

Notes

  • Unreleased US port of Quarter Back Scramble. The game was first announced in Nintendo Power and was featured in the magazine in software lists for about a year. Accolade decided to publish and rebrand the game in the west. However the game was cancelled for unknown reasons.
  • A prototype was found and discovered but never dumped and released, only sold through reproduction cartridges.
  • One byte difference in the header compared to a previously available build. (See TCRF link)
