S.A.C. Alert (?-??-83)


This is the PAL version of S.A.C. Alert.  This version is very similar to the NTSC version that turned up a few years ago, but has the addition of a title screen with a nice rendition of the Air Force song playing while the Amiga logo flashes.  If you switch to the sea variation the title screen will play the Navy song (Anchors Aweigh).  This is a super nice touch, but you can't start the game until each song finishes which gets annoying after a while.

Interestingly, although this prototype has had its scanlines adjusted for PAL, the colors themselves haven't been changed.  This means that if one plays this prototype on an NTSC machine the colors will be correct but the screen will roll and if one plays this on a PAL machine the screen won't scroll but the colors will be wrong.  The reason for this is unclear, but most likely this prototype was made to test the scanline adjustment before the colors were corrected.



The new title screen is nice

The rest of the game looks the same

This is what it looks like on a PAL system
