Like the opening, the ending's English text was smoothed over a little for the western releases.
The Japanese version features female ninja enemies known as Kunoichi. They were removed in the international versions, with all of their appearances replaced by Monkies (the small ninjas with claws).
At various points, the game will attempt to write to SRAM, which doesn't exist on a genuine cartridge. If the writes succeed, various things happen to make the game more difficult:
- The level select code mentioned above doesn't work.
- Health pickups don't actually do anything.
- Health doesn't automatically refill to max after completing each stage.
- Dying immediately sends you back to the intro instead of allowing you to continue.
