A prototype version was placed at Merlin's Castle in San Jose, CA, which had a bug (described below) that was corrected before the release version.  This version also apparently used a C-64 1541 floppy drive.

BUG: The "spider" in the creepy cavern level would occasionally stray out of its web, and if hit it, you could stun it and ride it around anywhere on the playfield .  Since it wasn't on the "spider web" anymore, the game didn't think it was a spider; it would make a bad sound effect.  {Will Wheaton}
