Probably more well-known for its C64 port by Imagine with the epic loading music by Martin Galway, the original Comic Bakery for the MSX is pretty great as well. Watch out for those tanuki rascals!

Regional Differences

For the most part, the Japanese and European versions are the same, albeit separate versions since Konami did not use region detection yet at this time. However, there still are some differences.

Splash Screen

The Japanese version's splash screen is black, while the European version's splash screen is blue.

Cacti speak Japanese.

Notes: Check translation for the Japanese labels.

The Japanese version was released as part of Konami's short-lived "I Love..." educational series, in this case as 「I love 社会」 ("I Love Society"). The three baking machines in the game's stages are labeled in kanji as an educational tool to illustrate the baking process.

Labels (JP) Translation (EN)
第一発酵 First fermentation
第二発酵 Second fermentation
焼き上げ Baking

The European version removes the Japanese writing and leaves those areas blank instead.
