The list does not include developer builds (like prototypes) and unpublic demos (like press demos). Repeated names are in fact different demos.

(?) means that this disc includes an existing but unchecked demo.

Rayman

  • Availability:
    • Japanese DemoDemo PlayStation Vol. 3
  • Content:
  • Notable differences:
    • The world map is the same as from the Atari Jaguar beta version with an Electoon moving on the map. There is also a point on the giant, floating present, although it can't be accessed.
    • In the files, Band Land is referred to as Chromatic Skies and Picture City as Image City—almost literal translations of the original French names Le Ciel Chromatique and La Cité des Images.
    • Early loading screen images are used. The one for the Blue Mountains shows Mr Stone throwing the boulder at Rayman.
    • Early sequenced music is used.
    • When falling from high places Rayman will appear stunned.
    • The lives counter displays a single digit.
    • Rather than getting Electoon markers on a medallion upon breaking a cage the player now has to collect the Electoons from it with a separate counter being available for that, replacing the tings.
    • The Big Powers use an incorrect palette for parts of their animation.
