Notes : Weather War was the pre production name.
Notes : Cloud 9 was originally supposed to be written by Dona Bailey (the coder for Centipede), but she left and Paul inherited it. The original game concept had a plug in the bottom of the screen that the character had to pull to let the water out. This game unfortunately only received one weekend of play testing at one location before being cancelled.

Qwak
1982 (Prototype)
CPU : M6502 @ 1.512 MHz
Sound : 2 x Pokey @ 1.512 MHz
Notes : Touchscreen Game.
Qwak Qwak
Notes : QWAK was a "15-puzzle" game with cute animations and it shares with MM2 the distinction of using "Motion Objects" for text.
The developers are unsure whether this was originally designed for a touch-screen or not. It could have been a joystick game that happened to be in development when they were interested in evaluating touch-screen technology. They felt that the touch-screen would make a more intuitive interface, but were apparently wrong. The most common comment at the focus-group was "could you put a joystick or buttons on it. It would be easier"...
