So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
To do:
The version in Rare Replay replaces the "NINTENDO" pickup letters with "CHAMPION".

Revisional Differences

The game had many internal changes made to it between the original and revised version, such as eliminating CHR-RAM from the cartridge, and changing the mapper to MMC1. There were also changes made that aren't merely internal changes, and you can see the differences.

For some reason, there is a random B in the top-left corner of the title screen in the Revision revision. This is displayed in an area usually cut off by TVs. It may represent the fact that the revised version is a secondary version of the game.

Gameplay & Pause Screen

The main gameplay and pause screen had a few changes between the original and revised version.

  • In the original version, the word "PAUSE" is larger and has gray text, while the revised version is smaller, white and shaded. Additionally, there is a 1/3 second delay between pausing the game in the original version and the word PAUSE appearing, while in the revised version, the word PAUSE appears instantly.
  • The main play area is slightly smaller in the original version than the revised version, and there is a larger gap between the play area and the status bar in the original version. The status bar is also smaller in the revised version.
  • While the game is paused, the radar still contains dots in the original version, but they are not present in the revised version.
  • The original versions have hidden copyright texts: "Copyright 1987 RARE LTD." twice at the end of the ROMs and "COPYRIGHT 1987 RARE LTD." once at the beginning of the ROM. The revised versions has no such strings at all.
