2.why was it not released then? crash of the video games market? and when was the proto discovered?
4.does someone have a picture of the proto?

I can only answer question 1: nothing has been changed to the game for the PAL release. For the NTSC carts a lot had to be changed to make it playable on Odyssey2 consoles. The result still looks the same as the PAL version (except for the red bar at the top of the screen, which is missing in the NTSC version).

Not 100% fact, but this would have been released as one of the last of the Parker Brothers games for the VP/O2. I would speculate that is was due to the crash in the game market, as Parker Bros. pulled out of the industry during that time.
