This is what appears to be the original installer of the Zombie Wars Demo:

Apparently, the demo scenario of CyberMage: Darklight Awakening is not included in the full version, as it was made specifically to showcase the game's features.
Download CyberMage Demo from C|NET Downloads

Not exactly extra content, but here's an official public beta demo of William Shatner's TekWar, found on PC Gamer Magazine Cover Disk #12 (hosted at cd.textfiles.com):
http://cd.textfiles.com/pcgamer/pcgamer012/TEKWAR/

From MANUAL.TXT:
Quote:
This is a beta Demo of TekWar the Game. As with any beta, there are
bound to be a few problems as the game is still not finished. Before you
get started there are a few things you need to know. Although the
graphics in TEKWAR are stunning, unless you have a high end machine,
we recommend playing in 320 x 200 mode.
In addition to just being an early build of the game, there are several Smacker videos not found in the regular demo version.

There was a special demo version of Dark Colony, with a unique mission apparently made specially for the PC Format magazine. The demo has apparently also contained a unique modification of one of the existing tilesets, altough that is conjecture on my part.

Hmm, I've found a large demo of Dark Colony recently at cd.textfiles.com, on a Polish gaming magazine cover CD, but I haven't checked it out yet. Here's the link:

Nope, not that one. It does seem to be distinct from the missions on the Dark Colony campaign, though...

Well, I didn't think it would be that easy... TBH, I've never played the full game myself, only the small demo I got from C|NET Downloads, so I don't know the differences.

Pharaoh
The demo contains a unique mission that had been specifically designed for demonstration and is not found in the full version to the game.
Download Pharaoh Demo from FilePlanet

Recently I've stumbled upon a pre-release demo version of Warcraft: Orcs & Humans. The date stamp on the installation files (October 4th, 1994) places it about a month before the game's final release. WHile the levels are largely the same, the demo has a few notable differences, including different speech clips for Human units, a static image of the map in the briefing, and different graphics for the Human Barracks:

Just found this interesting video:
http://youtu.be/bCLPrnrUQtM

It appears to be an enhanced version of the Warcraft II shareware (most probably distributed on a CD) with mission briefing voice-overs, fully animated intro sequence and CD audio music. The main menu screen (visible at 02:07) identifies this version as WARCRAFT 2 SHAREWARE v1.08sh.

Two other versions of the Warcraft II shareware - WARCRAFT 2 DEMO BETA v1.02elc and WARCRAFT 2 DEMO v1.20elc (both can be found here) - only have MIDI music, a static slideshow version of the intro, and no briefing voice-overs.

[Edit] Found a download at a German website:
http://www.warcraft-akademie.de/warc...90177f850fab8a

It's not an ISO though, just the files in a folder, so I'm not sure if the high-quality music audible in the video is actually included.
