How heavy is your brain?

Unused Text

To do:
More unused text - CVS files and a different dummy.txt file in the archives.

Multiple folders contain a text file called dummy.txt, which contains the following:


The text translates to:

Because it was archived, I removed the file from this directory.
Since the empty directory is erased from cvs, I inserted this file.

Regional Differences

To do:
There are a lot of graphical changes.


Currencies were changed between versions. The Japanese version uses yen, the North American version uses U.S. cents, and the PAL version uses pence (not euro coins or Australian dollars), even when the language isn't set to English.

To do:
Add screenshots.

Three minigames that involve knowledge of the Japanese language exist in the Japanese version. In the international versions, these were replaced with Missing Link, Animal Lines and Bone Yard.


In the Japanese version, a red maru (circle) is used to indicate correct, and a blue batsu (cross) for incorrect. These have been changed to a green check mark (or tick) and a red cross respectively in international versions.
