Chopper. Get to it.
Predator for the NES is loosely based on the MSX2 version of the game. It even reuses many graphics, as well as most of the music from that game.
To skip a "normal mode" level, hold Left + Right and press A or B. To skip a "big mode" level, hold Up + Down and wait until the normal level number screen appears. Note that these codes are impossible to enter on a properly-functioning NES controller.
The Japanese version contains some unused text strings for a sample version, which were removed from all other releases.
