Didn't Monster Demolition turn into Rampage?  Or is this a totally different game?

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Yes it did, but if you watch the video of it you can see that it's actually quite different in many ways. I would love to find a prototype of it as it was supposedly finished!

That's cool.  They should have released it as its own game rather than change it into Rampage.

Seem to recal reading that Rampage was known as Monster Demolition, whilst a court case was going on over wether they could use the Rampage name or not...

Monster Demolition was one of the first games that Epyx coded for the Handy.

When Atari bought the machine they licensed Rampage from Midway and had the game changed as well as changing Impossible Mission 3 into Electrocop and Time Quests & Treasure Chests into Gauntlet 3.

There were also a number of Epyx games that were never released at all as they were in production when the company went under including Barbarian Bodyguard, F1 Racer (rumoured to be the base code for Checkered Flag), Golf Challenger and RC Demolition Derby.

Summer, Winter and World Games were also due for release on the Lynx too.

Daemonsgate would have been an interesting one for sure, it was originally Gremlin's ST/Amiga RPG-Adventure said to have 1000's of charcaters and be 100,00 screens large.

The hype machine was in full swing during previews, with gremlin promising to give a real, 5 foot long sword to 1st person to complete the game.
