Trivia

Cancelled port

A Lynx port of AvP was actually planned, and came a far bit in development before ending up in Atari prototype heaven. The prototype has been dumped and released on the internet.

Development

Atari contemplated doing a straight port of the SNES game Alien vs. Predator for the Jaguar, but changed direction after designers realized they did not have the legal rights to the Dark Horse comic series on which the SNES game was based.

Prototype version

An earlier prototype version of Alien Vs Predator was dumped and is available for download to play through freeware Jaguar emulators. This version has a different UI layout, different alien sprites and incomplete texture maps at some of the walls.
