Note: Most information is taken from this video and video and game magazine covering Terranigma.

Note: I try to make each picture available in the best possible way but sadly most are just pictures from the internet.

Whatever has those green decorations I kinda consider beta stuff while being level 34 is usually an indication for the debug version.

Different Health Calues

Within the Japanese instruction booklet there are multiple screenshots that show different values for health.

This is printed on the back of the AUS/UK release and found in a French magazine:

Green Weapon

There are no green weapons available to the player at the point in the game.

There are only these two green weapons in the game: Sticker [Zue], BlockRod [Siberia]

Note: The green weapon also appears a lot in underworld screenshots within the instruction booklet.

Climbing Tower

A lot is "wrong" with this picture (taken from a French magazine):

  1. You don't have the claws in the underworld
  2. Only special surfaces are climbable
  3. Only tower 5 has no windows which means there is nowhere to go

Note: The engine does support any tile to be any surface type, but you still need claws to climb claw-surface.

Fr meg 3.pngTower climb beta.png

This is similar but instead of using the claw-climbing this is using rope/chain-climing, with no rope/chain in-place.

"Wrong Tower"

When entering the first Tower on the map, though it also says Tower 1, it is actually the Tower 5 model. Since this is the only Tower without any windows.

Head On Tower Top

In this version the head, which is now on the door, was at this position.

Debug Magic Menu

Since this shows all rings and pin magic, it might be a debug menu. Which also doesn't seem to be in the game anymore.

At this point in the game you don't have access to most of rings/pins on the menu. (also note the UI framing)

UI Frame And Low Level

Ark has just level six in both these pictures which is too low for those places, also with just 45 HP in the final game at level six you have 59.

Also after getting hit from stormkeeper Ark only takes 1 damage from a level 15 boss.

Ark has the green weapon in those pictures as well.

You can not have this spell with level six.
