Proto:The Flintstones (SNES)
This page details one or more prototype versions of The Flintstones (SNES).
A very early prototype.
- There is no audio at all.
- The menu has very unresponsive controls, making it hard to navigate through.
- The ability to take damage has not yet been implemented, so touching an enemy does nothing.
- Pressing Start lets you skip levels and cutscenes.
- There are only two levels: an early version of Volcanic 1, and an early version of Jungle 1.
|This needs some investigation.|

Specifically: Does Fred move around on the Ocean logo on the prototype version?
The copyright screen had a green background. In the final game, the background was changed to blue, a language selection was added, and the Ocean logo and "Licensed by Nintendo" text were moved to a separate screen. All of the logos were also given shading.
The font is much smaller in the prototype.
Dictabird was higher up and shifted to the left, and the font was different.
All of the cutscenes (excluding the first) have no characters other than Fred, who just runs around while the dialogue goes on.
Bam-Bam and Pebbles were redrawn and given a darker palette in the final game.
The boulder was given a much simpler design in the final game.
