Prototype Info

Unused Graphic


Starting from offset 0x16B08 in the ROM is a font that seems to be directly taken from the game's original Arcade release, where it's used in the game's attract sequence and in the mode selection screen.
While some of these characters appear in the demo version, those starting from "レ" go completely unused.

Regional Differences

While it was common for Japanese MSX/2 games to be released in South Korea via unauthorized means, this version of Quarth was brought to the country officially, being published by Daou Infosys, under the name of Sagag-ui Bimil (사각의 비밀). Note that this did not stop an unofficial port with the same title to be created, however.

  • In the Korean version, there's a small copyright disclamer that displays right after booting.
  • With the name change, came a new logo for the game, with a much more different design compared to the original baroque-themed approach.
