Regional Differences



The Japanese version has an additional image before each stage of the fighter ship launching.


The Japanese and US versions have significant palette differences.

The Japanese version uses a red color for the player sprite, while the US version uses an orange color.

Also, the Japanese version seems to take place in space, while the US version seems to be at sea.
