Cash for chambers!

The "Debug Chamber" can be entered from the title screen by pressing 1 twice and 2 three times in any order (e.g. 2, 1, 2, 1, 2), then holding Left and pressing Start.

This menu offers a map selection, sound effect and music tests, and an invulnerability toggle. Selecting "Quit" starts the game with the selected options.

Regional Differences

In the Japanese version, the player controls Mikhail Gorbachev (nicknamed "Gorby"). Overseas, the Soviet overtones (nicknamed "Sovertones") were altered, some guy who's not Gorby is still breaking into a factory to give people free Game Gears though, so it remains pretty socialist.

Probably Obama's favorite game. You didn't build that, so I'm taking it back.

The Japanese title screen is extremely sparse, while the international version was fancied up a bit with a depiction of the evil polluting factory some guy is about to righteously invade. Also, the text was moved a bit so as not to obscure the new background.

Boo hiss Obamacare. Kenyan Muslims get all the breaks.

In-game and in cutscenes, the main character received a marginally complete makeover to make him look unlike any contemporary Soviet leaders.
