Fantasy Zone (Arcade)
Fantasy Zone is a goofy shoot 'em up starring the living ship Opa-Opa, destroyer of Greek dinner plates and "I am your father" subplots.

Two of the songs in the game's earliest revision weren't finished on time. Oddly enough, the original music Easter egg in Super Fantasy Zone uses the early versions of both songs.
In the finished version of the stage clear theme, the clunky sounding percussion section was replaced with trumpets.
An additional lead instrument was added to the finalized version of "Hot Snow." The early version of the song is used (with reduced instrumentation) in the Master System, MSX, and Sunsoft ports.
