Here are a few prototypes I reviewed for the Atari 5200. Since they are incomplete I gave them grades of NA (Not Applicable).

Comments?

For what it's worth, I see a score attached to Jr. Pac-Man for the Atari 5200. This is actually the exact same situation there. A largely finished prototype that never was released to the public. I see no issue with it having a review score, but perhaps you'll want to switch it to N/A as well for consistency.

I wonder if disabling user reviews would also be wise? If for nothing else, it was clearly vandalized. Someone gave Frisky Tom a F- when it's a playable game that they likely never have touched. And I saw an A+ attached to Looney Tunes Hotel which is difficult to believe and likely came from the same user.

Nice reviews of three not-so-hot prototype games! Of the bunch, Frisky Tom seems like the only one worth bothering with.

Very pleased to see more Atari 5200 reviews too -- the first ones since the batch we got last year. You're so close to finishing off the official release set, with only five games left. Are any of them on your multicart?

I think I actually had the ultra-rare Bounty Bob in my possession at one point, on loan from a friend of my mother's in the early 1990s.
