Spot Goes To Hollywood - Sega Mega Drive PrototypeSpot Goes to Hollywood is an isometric sequel to Cool Spot. It was developed by Eurocom and published by Virgin Interactive in Europe and Acclaim Entertainment in North America in 1995 for the Sega Mega Drive. A Sega 32X game, again slightly different from the aforementioned version was planned, though was cancelled mid-way through development. Significantly enhanced versions with different levels appeared on the Sega Saturn and PlayStation in 1997. These versions were developed by Burst. During development the game was known as Cool Spot 3

The central character in the game is Spot. Spot has become trapped in a movie projector. As he jumps from film to film, he encounters many classic film genres; these make up the various levels of the game. The main levels are a pirate movie, an adventure movie, and a horror movie, but there is also a Western movie, a sci-fi movie, and a dinosaur movie which are unlocked by finding all five stars in each of the game's levels. Finding all the stars also grants a better ending upon the game's completion. There are red dots scattered around the levels. Collecting 100 of these earns an extra life.
