Demolition Depot?

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up a stack of 80s Analog magazines, and in a 1989 issue I saw an ad for Electronics One, which sold Atari hardware and software. In the 7800 cart section they listed "Demolition Depot - $14.99." Never heard of that one before, and a quick google revealed nothing. Assuming I didn't just miss it... does anyone know whether this was released under a different name, a proto that was never released, or a planned title that was never developed?

Probably a typo and meant Demolition Derby. Not a thing ever came to fruition though regarding that title. No proto released. Nothing missed. :)

 

Demolition Depot is mentioned here, grouped with GATO (We do have a very early beta/proto), Star Fox (Again, nada), and Night of the Ninja (Froggo title that was planned but zilch has ever surfaced on it). Cue UFO, Pyromania, and Scorpion Squad under that same Froggo umbrella.

Ah, perfect, thanks! Figured it was something like that.

 

Just to correct my post, the issue was from '86 not '89.

No problem. A longer list of planned stuff can be found here. Download the list (doc format) here.
