A prototype of Deadly Skies for the PlayStation.


  • Really early, compiled well over a year before the Japanese retail version (unreleased internationally).
  • The Coconuts Japan logo animation isn't shown; it shows the "FunCom" screen, followed by the message "and JVC Musical Industries present" divided across 3 screens.
  • The intro sequence is very different, featuring a hangar scene not shown in retail. It also does not have the voice-over narration of text.
  • At the "Mission Deadly Skies" part of the intro (which is shortened here), the audio cuts off.
  • Different loading/title screen
  • Very different plane/character selection music and selection menu in general. Different portraits, etc.
  • Slower loading screen, and it has music.
  • The game simply features VS mode with another plane/character. There are no cut scenes before the gameplay begins.
  • Different music during gameplay
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable: Yes (as of April 17, 2021).
    • Game contains dongle protection: No.
    • Game contains debugging symbols: N/A
    • Dump was originally scrambled: No
