Paradroid 90 - Ship 0: USF Dejavuja
 
Didn't know this existed but found out about this last week by a comment on youtube. Before the game there was a Paradroid 90 demo disk with an exclusive ship: the USF Dejavuja.

https://up.picr.de/42475906pw.png

In an interview Andrew Braybrook called the bonus pirate ship of the retail version "the 7th ship". But the retail version only had 5+1 ships. The exclusive "ship 0" from the demo explains why the pirate ship was the 7th that was designed for Paradroid 90.

Found two cracks of this on archive.org (through oldgamesfinder): one by Angels and one by Black Monks.

They slightly differ because the Angels-crack says "Get Ready" and the Black Monks-crack says "One-ship taster" at the start.
Also the Angels version seems bugged - I couldn't leave the ship after destroying all droids.
The Black Monks version lets you finish.

The ship's color palette seems to be randomly chosen from at least three different ones.

The ADFs are in the zone.

The demo is just called Paradroid 90 but it could be added as "Paradroid 90: USF Dejavuja" or "Paradroid 90: One-ship taster" to HOL.

Interesting find. Is it a Star Trek Enterprise reference?

Always loves the loopk of this game with the detailed environments and cool robots models.

Definitely, thus the name Dejavuja - because you've seen the shape before.

I have an unhacked adf taken from the Atari Forum, since the disk was a dual format Atari/Amiga. I've uploaded it here because I'm all for original material.

That's even better of course - thank you! :great

edit: Had a look at amr before but couldn't find it - but it's right there: https://amr.abime.net/issue_308_coverdisks
