Revisional Differences

Credits

In the Revision 0 release the second to last credit cloud reads:

     ADDITIONAL
     PROGRAMMING
     MARK MORRIS

       MUSICAL
     ARRANGEMENTS
   MARK VAN HECKE

In the Revision 1 version, more composers worked on the game, and so an additional cloud was added:

 ADDTN'L PROGRAMMING
     MARK MORRIS

 ADDITIONAL GRAPHICS
    JESSE KAPILI
    JOGENE KAPELL
    MIKE SULLIVAN
       MUSICAL
     ARRANGEMENTS

   MARK VAN HECKE
   KEN KIRSCHNER
    BILL PIDGEON
     DANNY RAY

Interestingly, the new composers seem to have their only credit in this game. The only exception is Bill(y) Pidgeon, who was a producer for Hi-Tech Expressions. Billy said that the three of them only composed music for this one title.

Music

Some of the music was completely changed between revisions. The European version uses the Revision 1 music.

Revision 0 Revision 1
Cutscene Music
Stage Theme 1
Underwater Theme
