Trivia

Sponsor

Pushover, along with its sequel, One Step Beyond, were both sponsored by Quavers, a popular British snack food. Quavers' former mascot, Colin Curly, is featured in both games (in the intro for Pushover, and as the main character in One Step Beyond).

Version differences

The SNES version completely lacks any reference to Quavers or Colin Curly - replacing them instead with bags of money, and a new character named Captain Rat, respectively.
