The Super Nintendo version of The Secret Missions is well known for its exotic cover art. Memory limitations at the time meant that the heavy Jalthi fighter was replaced with a green-tinted Salthi model. Mindscape chose to double down on this change by emphasizing it on both the box and a nifty fold-up poster included with the game. This threw some people off at the time, but the heavily armed olive drab Salthi has become a fun relic from the age where software developers were forced to do more with less. LOAF recently stumbled upon a really cool pilot advertisement that we've never seen previously. Does anyone else recall seeing it in late 1993 or 1994?
