Denz Traffic Panic (Japan) (Spark World Prototype)

デンズ トラフィックパニック (スパーク・ワールド プロトタイプ)

This is an early version of Spark World, a fun Super Bomberman clone where the players are cars and everything is automotive themed.

It’s close to being finished, I only noticed the lack of a difficulty selection and a few graphical changes in the story selection, the player and the player score area- outside of the title screen overhaul due to the name change.

Titles - Prototype / Final

The title screens are similar but the logos are entirely different, the prototype logo looks more “fun” to me. The barrel obscured by the menu had changed to a battery, and STORY GAME replaces NORMAL GAME in the final.

Some backgrounds have very slightly been adjusted, for the better. Here we see the repeated background changed from TRAFFIC PANIC to SPARK WORLD.

Story In Game

Lots of changes in game, the car looks happy in the prototype, power up icons are slightly different, the border of the player box has changed, and in the prototype player 2 doesn’t look defeated.
