| Subroutine Labels|
Dare you to comprehend them?
The following names are filtered out of the high score screen:
|SEX||Pretty sure this one is obvious.|
|OME||"Omeko" and "Omanko" are very rude slang terms for the vagina.|
Omeko is mainly used in the Kansai region. The more you know~★
|AHO||A variant of "baka" that's either more or less offensive depending on where you are in Japan.|
|MAN||Probably meant for "manko", yet another term like Omeko or Omanko. Rude.|
If a player tries to put any of those names in, it'll be replaced by one of the following:
|K.O||Unknown developer initials. Possibly Tamio Nakasato (lead programmer at NMK at the time), but initials don't line up at all.|
|YOU||Youichi Koyama, sub-programmer for this game.|
|AKI||Possibly Akihiko Sato. (AKI credit is also in Makai Densetsu)|
|TAE||Taeko Suzuki, credited as a character and sound designer in Butasan and Psychic 5.|
|Y.M||Yousuke Maki, also credited for Hardware in Butasan and Psychic 5.|
|T.K||Probably Tecchan K. (some composition in Saint Dragon)|
|KIN||Unknown developer initials.|
|NMK||The developers of this game. Go back and read the Bob!|
There are at least three different versions: The Japanese set, the World set, and the Japanese "Export" set. For some strange reason, the Export set still contains the exportation warning found in the Japanese version.
|JP / Export||World|
The game's subtitle is "The Freedom Fighter" in the JP and Export sets, and "The Phantom Fighter" in the World version.
|World / JP||Export|
The main difference between the Export and other sets is that in the Export version, every Balkenkreuz and Swastika has been erased. This changes the game from an explicit World War II theme to a more generic plane-centered shoot 'em up.
|World / JP|
This also applies to six of the game's enemies, including that flag on the teeny tiny tank.
