BUZZ BOMBERS

Marketing had a version of the game prototyped with a RAID can and tried to sell Johnson & Johnson, makers of Raid bug-spray.  {BSR}

Buzz Bombers is a one-player game only, a fact that wasn't properly communicated to the Visual Design (packaging) department. Tens of thousands of copies were packed before someone realized the back of the box said "1 or 2 can play." They had to cross it out every copy by hand.  {BSR}

When first turned on or reset, the game will flash a standard title screen (picture #2) just before it shows the normal one.
