A few days ago, we received a private message from a fan called David Rogers who discovered a Sega Mega Drive/Genesis ROM which appears to be prototype of Fantastic Dizzy.
He discovered the ROM on the server of the 'English Amiga Board' in a collection of other Sega ROMs.

You can download it here.
:egg: DOWNLOAD

Also enclosed in the zip are descriptions and screenshots of all the differences and unfinished sections that are on this prototype.
There's a lot to go through on this thread alone but what I can point out.
- No Audio
- Dizzy missing from Codies screen
- No title and Intro
- Score doesn't work
- Unlimited Lives
- Palette changes on some sections
- Early graphics including a bigger Pogie
- The extra life Puzzle is a lot different.

And the controls are different too.
- 'A' Button makes Dizzy walk faster when held
- 'B' Button is Jump
- 'C' Button is Action/Pickup/Drop/Talk
- 'Start' button shows the Status/Inventory screen

Feel free to explore this prototype.
Again, there is lot more differences than what's been mentioned here.
