Notes

  • No SEGA logo at start up.
  • The CodeMasters logo isn't animated and lacks the sound effect from the final game.
  • The game doesn't automatically select a language if you idle for too long as the language select screen.
  • It takes a little longer to get to the demos after sitting at the title screen.
  • The names on the top score tables are different.
  • The prototype displays a controller layout after the top score screen. This screen doesn't exist in the final game, and it isntead goes right into the demos.
  • The prototype starts off with a demo of the Wild West mini game whereas the final game starts with a demo of the Psycho pinball table.
  • The "START SINGLE TABLE GAME" on the game selection screen says "START GAME" in the prototype.
  • You can not pause the game in the prototype.
  • The prototype displays the name of the table at the top of the screen at the start of the game. In the final, a message was added to remind the player to launch the ball.
  • In the options screen, the Tilt Sensitivity setting uses "EASY/NORMAL/HARD" while the final uses "LOW/MEDIUM/HIGH".
  • In the options screen, the Number of Balls setting lists the difficulty alongside the number of balls in the prototype whereas the final just lists the number of balls.
