Unused Audio


This music track is located in the game's files under music/Sea/seam.adp. Based on this context, it appears to belong to a 3rd level in the submarine/sea area (which doesn't exist in the final game). This is supported by the existence of data for a "SeaM" level in other folders; interestingly, it appears to be one of three levels scrapped from the game (others are "DinoB" and "MidevlD").

Susie Introductions

In the file directory for Susie's voice lines (the bulk of which probably being her introductory lines that play at the beginning of each level), there are .dba files for three unused levels: "SeaM," "DinoB," and "MidevlD." Each is named "sound.dba." Their contents are currently unknown.

Unused Characters

In the players folder, there is an empty folder for a character named "Buzz;" it has no other data associated with it.
