Anti-Piracy Features

Besides using a microcontroller unit, this game has two additional anti-piracy features:

  • During both normal gameplay and demo play, the game compares the "TAITO" in the "© TAITO CORP. 1985" copyright string with an encrypted copy at 0x6495 in the ROM. If the strings don't match, the game will reset. This check occurs in every frame.
  • Before the title screen fades out, the game checks if the Taito logo on the title screen (0xC61A in RAM) matches an encrypted version at 0x4214. If the strings don't match, the game will reset when either normal gameplay or demo play starts.

High Score Names

There are three sets of special high score names in the game. The first is a list of obscenities, mostly Japanese slang terms for vagina. Entering one of the names from the first column in the table below will replace it with a randomly-selected message from the second column:

Names Messages
SEX DOSUKEBE !
OMEKO SUKEBE !
OMECO H !
OMANKO ?
OMANCO YUKI.S
MANCO SANSHIRO
MANKO A H O !
BOBO
MEMEJO

The second group is English obscenities and half-obscenities which have their own list of randomized responses:

Names Messages
FUCK LEWDNESS !
PUSSY FOOLISH !
MAKE LOVE BLOCKHEAD
GET IT ON ?
BAWDY !
TAITO CORP
LADY 346

The third group seems to be developer names combined with heart and star characters, each with its own unique replacement message:

Name Message
H.ARASHI DARUI !
S.KATO SHUJI !
K.YAMADA BAKABON !
T.NAKASE TAKAFUMI.N
Y.TANAKA FUJISHIRO.
KURANAGA SATOSHI.K

Of these names, the only one known to have worked on another Taito game is Satoshi Kuranaga, who is credited under Software Support on the 1987 game Extermination.
