2nd Logo (1996-2006)Appaloosa Interactive (1998)

Logo: We see an outline of running horse, zooming out and shining with green light. The blue words unveil around, reading "Developed by" above and "Appaloosa Interactive" in two lines below. The screen flashes and turns white, with an orange circle in the center and the words in black now. The horse drawing takes place in the circle.

FX/SFX: Light beaming from the horse. Simple effects.

Variants: On Jaws Unleashed, the words above said "Designed and Developed by". Sometimes, the logo appears completed, but the horse was running in the circle. On Ecco the Dolphin for Dreamcast, the background was black.

Music/Sounds: A windy synth tune.

Availability: Uncommon. The animated version was seen on Tiny Tank and South Park(Playstation only), among others. The version with the running horse was seen on Lost World: Jurassic Park, Contra: The Legacy of War and Three Dirty Dwarves (Playstation only).
