Bugs Bunny ?-??-83

This is a mid-level WIP version of Bugs Bunny.  While an actual prototype for this version has not yet been found (if it was ever burned onto EPROMs), it was featured in the Atari In-House Promo 2nd Quarter 1983 video which was made to show other Atari employees what everyone was working out at the time.  While looking very close to the late level WIP, there are still some differences. 

The biggest difference is what appears to the a bullet counter on the right side of the status box.  It's assumed that this would function similarly to the bullet counter under the left side house in the final version.  Also of note is that the score and bonus timers appear to be non-functional in this version and are in the center and right instead of being on the left and right.  There also appear to be multiple holes on each floor which is something that doesn't happen in the final version.  Bug's death animation is slightly different, especially in the legs and body.  The lives icons also appear to be missing Bug's nose and mouth dots, but that may just be due to the poor quality of the video.  A final thing to note is that the person playing the game in the video seemed to be unable to actually land in a hole.  This may mean that the holes were non-functional in this version.


Notice there are two holes?

Note the bullet counter
