* BonusStage: Collect 75 of the little red spot tokens in a level and you can enter a bonus stage where you bounce around on bubbles in a (comparatively) giant 7-Up bottle and attempt to get as many points and 1-ups as possible before the timer, which is much shorter than it is for a normal level, reaches zero. The only way to get continues, which take the form of the letters of the word "UNCOLA".

''Cool Spot'' is one of the more notable aversions to TheProblemWithLicensedGames. The game was released on several systems during the 16-bit era, is a PlatformGame starring the red spot in the 7-Up logo. As this spot, your goal is to explore what appears to be a tourist town or seaport of some kind and rescue others of your number from cages that, [[ExcusePlot for some reason]], they are imprisoned in. Although this concept sounds lame, the game itself is surprisingly well-made and fun, with catchy music, large levels, intuitive controls, a decent level of challenge, and plenty of secret areas. With its generous time limits, the game encourages you to take your time and explore rather than immediately free your buddy and end the level.

** Each setting is also related to the one before it and the one after it, forming a continuous journey. In other words, the themes are chosen to make it look like Cool Shot starting a beach, making his way into a toy store, and back onto a beach.
