So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

The port of some strange Commodore 64 game that was originally made by this guy named William Ralph Wright, or something.

Hidden Message

Raid on Bungeling Bay-bykiku.png

The Japanese version contains a hidden developer's message, triggered by pressing Up + B + Select while the demo gameplay is shown. The string "BY KIKU" will appear at the bottom of the screen.

"KIKU" is a pseudonym for Kikuta Masaaki (菊田昌昭), one of Hudson's programmers. Most games programmed by Masaaki have secrets or hidden messages, including Nuts & Milk, Binary Land, and Challenger.

Although the US version contains the string and the code, it uses a completely different title screen display routine, and uses a different title screen text block from the CHR ROM data, so a grey screen is shown instead of the title screen.
