Pringles Pony Express (found 3D Groove online game; 2002)
Pringles Pony Express was a 2002 online game that was created with the 3D Groove game engine.
Pony Express was one of two 3D Groove games created for the Pringles website (the other was Pringles: Super Spud Boxing.) Wayback Machine only captured the loader for Pony Express, so a logo would appear but the game would never load.
Here is the original description from the 3D Groove website.
"Buckle your saddle, 'cause you'll be racing through canyons and prairies to deliver those dang tasty new Sweet Mesquite BBQ Pringles. Gather up a posse and invite your friends to play along."
From the gameplay stills, we could see the game was set in the wild west with saguaro cacti, buttes, and buildings as scenery. The player would control the Pringles guy on a horse, delivering the Sweet Mesquite BBQ flavor Pringles from point A to point B, and the oats pictured were assumed to be powerups. It was unknown if enemies are present, and if there were any other features such as a time limit.
On October 3rd, 2018, LMW user TOMYSSHADOW (with the help of Ezone's Simon Edis) uploaded a MEGA Folder with a large number of previously lost games, including Pringle's Pony Express.
