Regional Differences

Title Screen

The title screen was changed for the Japanese version. The European title is identical to the US one, save for a single very important space added to the word "PASSWORD".

Password Screen

US/Europe Japan

In the US and European versions, the password screen is on the title screen. In the Japanese version, there is a separate screen for the passwords. Note that the space in "PASSWORD" disappears when you actually choose the option in the European version.

Miscellaneous Differences

  • In the Japanese version, you replenish one heart after each level.
  • In the Japanese version, the frag mine enemy's hitbox is slightly larger, making it harder to avoid.

Level/Room Differences

Stage 2-2

US/Europe Japan

There are significantly fewer spikes and pits in the Japanese version.

Stage 2-3
