Star Fox2:

  • This game was being developed for the SNES, but upon seeing little interest by visitors of the Space World, Nintendo decided to wait and release the next Star Fox game on the N64. This rom is a Beta: an unfinished product; a sample of a game that was never released. Many things are missing and the most complete thing is the dog fighting. The Menus are fairly simple though not everything works. Interesting is how the airwings (now armed with torpedos instead of bombs) can change into landwalkers or standing space pods by pressing select. Also the visual effects of the sky and ground won't work right under ZSNES DOS (perhaps that's because the game was to use the chip SuperFX2) so you better use the windows port and be careful not to fly too far out of the play area on the radar.


  • Zsnes is the emulator of choice for this game, for it is the only one that runs it with sound and correct background.
