Also known as: Super Genjin (JP), Super B.C. Kid (EU/AU)
Super Bonk is a game in which tries are had.
Track 10 is a fairly short, looping victory theme, similar in composition to the ending theme.
Track 0A is a short, dramatic tune, possibly intended for a King Drool cutscene.
A debug mode can be accessed through the Pro Action Replay code 80A41FFF (US) or 80A416FF (Japan).
After starting the game, enable the code and press Start to access a level select screen. A and B change levels, although holding L and R while doing so will skip 10 at a time. Y and X change where you start in a level.
Pressing L and R together will bring up a sound test. Use the D-Pad to choose between BGM, SE 01, and SE 02. A and Y increase or decrease the numbers (again, holding L and R while doing so will skip 10 at a time), while B plays the chosen track. Press Start to return to the level select screen.
Lastly, there is a sprite editor available. At the level select, press Select to edit the currently selected area.
All three versions have slightly different title screens, though Japan got flashing red text on the logo.
The Japanese version has three different forms of the "RAGE" projectile: "AKEE!" for Normal Bonk, "SUNAIPU!" (Snipe) for Fester Bonk, and "HENYO!" for Kronk Bonk. The other versions have three copies of the same graphics.
Several room names were changed between the North American and European versions.

The graphics for the first section of Stage 1 were redone. The Japanese version is set in Japan, while the international versions seem to be based off China (hence the level name "China Town").
The tower in the background is clearly the Tokyo Tower in the Japanese version and most likely the Eiffel Tower in other versions.
The same change appears in the tower proper.
The route number was removed from the exit sign in the international versions.
Bridge palette changed from gray to brown. Why? Who the hell knows?
Penalty Game Stage
Accessible in the Japanese version by going above the screen in the Lower Towers and Find The Comet stages. In the other versions, Bonk simply bounces off the top of the screen. The international versions also remove the up/down arrows and "Penalty Game Stage" text.
In the international versions, this stage can be accessed from the stage select (under the title "Rounded Earth"), though it will not function properly.
In this stage, the player walks left or right and repeatedly hits the Bonk button while the Earth spins. Once Bonk is walking fast enough, he can jump and exit the stage. Given the somewhat confusing and pointless nature of the stage, it's no surprise that it was given the axe.
