Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.

At the birth date entry screen, press Up+I+Run. A cheat menu with level select (top) and sound test (bottom) options will appear. The level select doesn't seem to work in the US version, however.

Regional Differences

Careful, you'll lose an eye.
This page or section needs more images.
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.
To do:
Add title screen comparison, and see if there's any other differences.

The US and JP versions have drastically different intro cutscenes.

  • The JP version has a very brief cutscene showing God pulling an egg from...an egg tree, dropping it out of the sky, and having it land on the ground far below, hatching open a pink slinky. This is not elaborated on at any point.
  • The US version opens up with a prologue, explaining that a sorceress is planning to conquer the world. It then cuts to said sorceress slowly unleashing her minions (the bosses of the game) from her crystal orb. However, the slinky abruptly shows up in the orb to taunt her and say that it will ruin her plans before showing the level transition screen.
