1. Attack-a-Snack
A Beach Volleyball Mini Game where you had to hit tasty objects in order to ‘make a sandwich’. The precursor to Fruit Splatter mode, which made it to production while Attack-a-Snack fell into the void, mouth-watering fillings and all. Is it lunchtime yet?

2. Meteor Boxing
Sonic Blast Man-style meteor-punching, power-measuring Mini Game, allowing you to act all tough like the little scamps in fairground arcades in your very own living room. In hindsight our ambitious plan to “build the whole of space!” as the background might have been the final nail in the coffin…

3. Googly Eyes
As a classic Rare easter egg, we put eyes on every inanimate object in the game and gave them expressions when they hit something – the football, paddle, bowling ball and so on. It was removed for fear of what the NSPCG (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Googlies) might have had to say on the matter. Spoilsports!

4. Mystery Mascots
Zippy Zombie, Champion Chicken and Sportastico all made it into the fortunate final three, but there were a handful of others designed or modelled (some even animated) who weren’t so lucky. Blazing Banana, anyone? The fastest banana on the planet, fact! We salute you, sir… erm, fruit.

5. Table Tennis Bingo
For our bingo-loving lovelies! Sounded awesome, until we thought about it some more…

I want 2 and 3 and also Rare characters as mascots like Banjo.
