Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: DEB00.BIN and DEBDUMMY.BIN in the Japanese version and E/F/GDEB00.BIN and E/F/GDEBDUM.BIN in the European release could be some debug-related things.

Diver's Dream is a diving simulation game. In its story mode, the player explores the seas, finds treasures, sells them for money to buy better equipment, to explore further and further, to eventually find the Gigantic Matilda shipwreck.

Dummy File

The extensionless DOLPHIN, which is likely a padding file, is an alternate version of Big Pudding, the track that plays during Free Mode. Compared to the original, this variant is much slower (68 against 94.5 BPM) and has a proper fadeout in the ending.
