Greeny Phatom is a 1996 side-scrolling action video game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and various other systems based on the TV series of the same name. It was developed by Charles-Nickson Enterprises and Probe Entertainment and published and released by "Balls" and Acclaim Entertainment.
The porting and reprogramming for other systems was done by It's BIG, an incubation group division of "Balls" while the Game Boy Color version's porting and reprogramming was done by Kemco, who made the Crazy Castle games.
The game was programmed by people who also worked on the other games "Balls" made. The voices were recorded by the same voice actors as in the show.
The CD-I, Laserdisc arcade, and Greeny Arcade releases had various songs from worldwide bands and artists, some stock music, and some tunes from James Clayton's a-Capella group James' Singers.
Many of the releases also had an emulation of Invade-a-Load as a loading minigame.
The Sega Genesis and Game Boy releases used the types of cartridges by Electronic Arts and Wisdom Tree for their games on those systems. "Balls" licensed the cartridge types on the cheap, $500 for the EA cart type, and $100 for the Wisdom Tree cart type. Though versions using the normal cart types were produced, but sold only as fully-finished demos given out at special events booked to sell cartridges via a kiosk.
Nintendo Entertainment System, Atari Jaguar, Tiger LCD handheld, and Tandy VIS versions were planned, but all cancelled, and many prototypes of said versions have been sold on eBay to this day.
