This article attempts to documents the differences between the EGA and VGA versions of Space Quest I.
Ulence Flats Edit
- Due to the new interface, it is now possible to talk to the characters in the bars.
- Touching the force field multiple times is now lethal.
In the EGA version, the player must play the slot machine as a game of luck (except in later versions where typing "HOLY SHIT" at the slot machine screen will enable a cheat). In the VGA version, a magnet can be found on the Arcada, which can then be attached to the slot machine for a guaranteed win.
In both versions, getting three skulls results in the player being vaporized. In the EGA version, the raygun emerges from the machine; in the VGA version, it is externally mounted.
Practically everything is in a graphically different style. Here are some of the major differences:
In EGA, Roger has brown hair, and a white and gray uniform. However, in the VGA remake, they decided to model Roger after the latest version at that time - Space Quest IV - and therefore has blonde hair and a white and purple uniform.
In the EGA version, the Deltaur appears as a generic sci-fi star cruiser, whereas in the VGA version it looks like a giant insect.
