I recently learned about this item, a preview or promotional version of Salamander with the first three levels of the game followed by a message in Japanese announcing the final game's [intended] release on August 21 (1988). Information about this cart is here:

http://www.gradius2.com/index.php...

There's also a video showing an incomplete fourth level with an unused music track ("Combat"), only accessible by hacking or Game Genie code.





Anyone know if this cart has been officially dumped and released? If so, what ROM am I looking for?

Salamander is a Gradius spinoff released in Japan, but renamed Life Force on the NES in USA.  Both versions are fully dumped. Famicom got the true Gradius II arcade port, which is also dumped.

Yeah but hes asking about the SAMPLE version of Salamander for Famicom, which has NO public dump.


I have The Goonies II Sample Cart rom if youre interested in seeing that. Same premise as the Salamander sample with the release date screen.
