Clearly the HUD and font is very different from the rest of the game? Is it an earlier/later version?


Maybe once the rom is hacked, we might find some interesting stuff.

Oh, I just found this really fun remake of Faceball called "Faceball 3000".

It seems very tricky, but it's a fine remake, and you can even strafe!!

That is the one screenshot that can be found online that causes me questions as well. That screenshot does indeed depict something that does not appear at all in the version of Faceball that Eric got. I cannot figure out if it is showing an earlier or later version of Faceball. That screenshot came from a Japanese magazine that showed one screenshot of each VB game in its list:

http://www.planetvb.com/modules/articles/?s020159001

That magazine also shows one screenshot of many Virtual Boy games that never saw the light of day in any form, and it is unknown if any partially-working ROMs are available at all for many of those games or if they ever found their way into private hands. The best that I can conclude is that the aforementioned screenshot shows a version of VB Faceball that most likely never found its way into private hands, but I can't say for sure if it is an earlier or later version.

Are there any pictures of the actual cartridge yet? I'm pretty sure I went through every page, but I might've missed something...


There are pictures of the prototype that Mr. G sent to DogP once.

And here is the front of the cart(first page of article scan), also a nice review. :)
