    Default Unknown unreleased NES Proto

    Hey guys,

    I just came into a copy of Hoppin' Mad for the NES by Elite. I haven't found any documentation of this game being considered for production. The first 2 levels are complete and the third is playable but has no enemies. The game is quite fun too.

    That's pretty rad! I'd like to know more, can you describe the gameplay a little, and maybe take some more screenshots (maybe video if you have it)?

    Quite cool, give some info and publisher stuff and we can add that to the database too. I'd love to see what kind of game it is and how it plays as well.
    If they made a movie out of your top five worst sins, what would it be rated?

    Wow, the palette used makes it look more like a SMS game than a NES game! Must have been programmed late in the NES's life...

    Nice find, looks all good although more pics or a vid would be great to see the actual gameplay.

    I think you forgot to post more about the game! Are you being bombarded with offer requests or something?
