Unused Textures

Level 2 has a brickwork texture that's always offscreen, so it's never seen or used.

If you use level select to access Level 6 in easy mode, the entire level is empty except for these three skeletons.

Unused GUI

As you never face all possible enemies in the Duel Mode, some faces are never seen. Also not all letters are used.


The game was ported to the Arcade too, under the Mega Play system:

  • Access to all the duel and all the menus was removed and instead replaced with PUSH 1P OR 2P START BUTTON.
  • The settings were moved to the dip switches, which lets you change the difficulty between Normal and Hard, user starts with 1 or 2 lives, and 1 or 2 initial players, and turn the timer on or off.
  • 9 second timer added to Select Player screen.
  • 8 minute timer added to Normal mode, which resets at the start of each level. Says TIME OVER and requires another credit to continue play.
  • INSERT COIN(S), Credit system and instruction screen added.
  • Ending staff roll now only says PRESENTED BY SEGA and THE END.
  • The ranking screen difficulty has been deleted.
