This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
Hmmm...
To do:
Add the last two worlds

A lot of the stages were modified for the game's western release. In particular, a new enemy (actually repurposed from the final boss), who will be called Robo-Bomber, was added.


Special thanks to Ragey for the level maps!

World 1

1-1

Japan International
Atomic1 1J.png Atomic1 1U.png
  • The soft blocks at the far left and right sides of the stage were moved forward. Save for the middle one which was removed. Poor middle block.

1-2

Japan International
Atomic1 2J.png Atomic1 2U.png
  • The two soft blocks at the far sides of the stage were moved forward, thus closing in the stage a lot better. This stage also marks the introduction of Robo-Bomber (the green bomber). It certainly won't be the last we see of him.

1-3

Japan International
Atomic1 3J.png Atomic1 3U.png
  • The four corners of the stage had its soft blocks removed in the International version.

1-4

Japan International
Atomic1 4J.png Atomic1 4U.png
  • A few soft blocks were rearranged and a Robo-Bomber was added.

1-5

Japan International
Atomic1 5J.png Atomic1 5U.png
  • Two of the clown baby(?) enemies were closed in with soft blocks. And Robo-Bomber.

1-6

Japan International
Atomic1 6J.png Atomic1 6U.png
  • Some skates were added, likely to accommodate for the increase from two to four players.

World 2

2-1

Japan International
Atomj2-1.PNG Atomu2-1.PNG
  • Hello Robo-Bomber!

2-2

Japan International
Atomj2-2.PNG Atomu2-2.PNG
  • It wouldn't be Atomic Punk without Robo-Bomber.

2-3

Japan International
Atomj2-3.PNG Atomu2-3.PNG
  • The first major change. International's 2-3 is Japan's 2-5. The Japanese layout for 2-3 is never seen in the International version. Robo-Bomber approves.

2-4

Japan International
Atomj2-4.PNG Atomu2-4.PNG
  • Japan's 2-4 is International's 2-5. A new, harder layout was made for International, complete with Robo-Bomber.

2-5

Japan International
Atomj2-5.PNG Atomu2-5.PNG
  • International's 2-5 is Japan's 2-4. The Japanese layout for this level was used for International's 2-3. Also, everybody loves Robo-Bomber.

2-6

Japan International
Atomj2-6.PNG Atomu2-6.PNG
  • The power-ups were rearranged in International.

World 3

3-1

Japan International
Atomj3-1.PNG Atomu3-1.PNG
  • And yet another Robo-Bomber.

3-2

Japan International
Atomj3-2.PNG Atomu3-2.PNG
  • It's everybody's favorite! Robo-Bomber!

3-3

Japan International
Atomj3-3.PNG Atomu3-3.PNG
  • Another Robo-Bomber related change.

3-4

Japan International
Atomj3-4.PNG Atomu3-4.PNG
  • Here's an interesting one; 3-4 was redone for the International version. More enemy varieties and a Robo-Bomber are included.

3-5

Japan International
Atomj3-5.PNG Atomu3-5.PNG
  • Yawn. Robo-Bomber AGAIN.

3-6

Japan International
Atomj3-6.PNG Atomu3-6.PNG
  • Some extra power ups to accommodate for increase in players.

World 4

4-1

Japan International
Atomj4-1.PNG Atomu4-1.PNG
  • The Japanese and International versions have their own exclusive layouts.

4-2

Japan International
Atomj4-2.PNG Atomu4-2.PNG
  • The Return of Robo-Bomber.

4-3

Japan International
Atomj4-3.PNG Atomu4-3.PNG
  • International's 4-3 is Japan's 4-4. Japan's 4-3 is never seen in the International version. Robo-Bomber says good riddance.

4-4

Japan International
Atomj4-4.PNG Atomu4-4.PNG
  • Japan's 4-4 is International's 4-3. International uses its own exclusive layout.

4-5

Japan International
Atomj4-5.PNG Atomu4-5.PNG
  • Robo-Bomber check complete.

4-6

Japan International
Atomj4-6.PNG Atomu4-6.PNG
  • Some skates were added.
