A pinball RPG. Yeah, you heard right. And before we lose you, there's also three standard-type games to choose from.

Unused Graphics

To do:
Careful, you'll lose an eye.
This page or section needs more images.
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.

Chilling in the ending scene's sprite bank is an older version of the stoppers/AT symbols used in RPG mode.

The (unused and used) stopper graphics both use three colors, with the older ones saying '1 2 3' and the used ones saying '1 F P'. In-game, both the text and stopper graphic are always white, rendering the lettering effectively invisible.

The Golf table sprites contain graphics saying "GOD!! FINE"(PinballQuest god fine.png) (maybe "good"?), which seems to be unused.

There are unused Japanese characters/words left in some of the latter graphics banks.

Regional Differences

There's some katakana that was obviously removed from the US version, though it remains in that version's ROM. The copyright statement was also changed, necessitating a removal of the Jaleco logo.

An intro for the RPG mode was added to the US version, showing the king and queen being kidnapped, before dropping the player into the game.
