Debug Replay recorder/player (JP version only)

Game Genie code 010‑51B‑2A2 re-enables some debugging functionality. Before the level starts, while program is waiting for pressing any button, with this code press Start a number of times corresponding to the desired effect then press any other button.

  • 1 time - Play previously recorded replay data.
  • 2 times - Start to record replay data. Play as usual, all your movements are recorder in the RAM buffer which may be replayed with option above after restarting the stage.
  • 3 times - Play hardcoded replay data to solve current level. The hardcoded data is the same that used for hint secret, but with this debug feature it completes the stage instead of just demonstrating how to solve it.
  • 4 or more times - Complete current stage instantly.

Regional Differences

Super Game Boy support

As stated above, the EU version added Super Game Boy support. Many cutscene graphics also got redesigned.

Extra levels

The European version has three stories instead of just one: "First Steps in Eden", which serves as the game's tutorial, "Dance & Music", and "Let's go to Gentryland". The Gentryland plot is the plot from the original Lolo no Daibouken but with different levels due to being encountered much later into the game. Because of this, most of Lolo no Daibouken's early levels are re-located into Dance & Music, while Gentryland gets new, more challenging boards.

In total, not counting the introductory levels and extra "Pro" levels, the European version's two stories combined total up to 130 levels, compared to the Japanese's 50.
