Game Cover
Game Facts: This game was apparently scheduled to be released from Studio Interactive which appears to be a satellite company from Philips. We know this from some reported catalogue entries of "Space Ranger: Return to Earth" although we know little else about this game. At Classic Gaming EXPO 2002, released this early prototype game and added Alpha to the games title to make sure it's understood that it's not a complete game. "Space Ranger: Return to Earth - Alpha" is available from for $7.99 excluding P+P. Support "The Black Moon Project" by selecting us from the "Sales Affiliate" drop down menu

Prototype Status

This segment will catalogue any problems experienced by CD-i users with the prototype releases from It's not intended to scare people away from experiencing the great software are providing at a reasonable price. Although we do ask you to bear in mind that these prototype releases have not been through the compatibility testing stage at Philips Interactive Media Centre in Hasselt, Belgium as all eventual CD-i commercial software did. So their may well be some unforeseen problems or on the other hand it may work 100% perfectly, either way any problems will be reported here:

  • Limited Game Menu access.
  • Early developmental version.
  • Repeatedly plays only one single level.

Verdict: This is an early developmental release and earns the "Alpha" title given to it by The actual title screen has the text "Engineering Test Disc 0.02" indicating an early stage of development. So don't expect a hardcore gaming experience by any means. An interesting release and should only be treated as a curiousity by serious CD-i collectors and gamers alike, at $7.99 can we really argue!!

Release Information & The Rumour Mill

European Release: This game was distributed in a regular CD jewel case with a golden CD-i impression on the top left front of the spine.
