Arguably the best Superman game released, which is saying a lot.

Hmmm...
To do:
There appears to be a prototype dump of this game. Doesn't seem to be that different.

At the title screen, press Start on controller 2. The game's attract mode will appear. Now hold B on controller 2 and press Start on controller 1, and the game will go back to the title screen.

Unused Graphics

ここにスーパーマンのフォントがはいります(64キャラ)

This Japanese text is found in the game's graphics and gets overwritten by the player sprites. It translates to "Superman font goes here (64 characters)".

Regional Differences

Superman (Genesis)-Menu Selection-Europe.png

An options menu appears in the European version when pressing the Start button, allowing the player to change the difficulty and allowing one to listen to the game's audio. On top of the menu being available, the following text is shown when beating the game on the Practice difficulty:

WELL DONE SUPERMAN

YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE EASY OPTION

PLEASE TRY NORMAL OR HARD OPTION

While the menu is not available in the US version, the text is still in the ROM. ROM address DF30 has the practice difficulty ending text, while E0DD and E29A have the options menu text.
