The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle (NES)
|The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle|
This game has a bugs page
Bugs Bunny is inside of a castle that is crazy. Maybe it's wearing a straight jacket.
Are there any more differences between the two versions?
Document the prototype; Bugs Bunny's Fun House
Famicom Disk System Leftovers
Two title screen graphics that were used in the game's Famicom Disk System iteration, Roger Rabbit. Not used here for quite obvious reasons.
A steel box object that doesn't appear to be used in any level in either variation of the game.
Title Screen Bits
Title graphic bits left over from the prototype, when the game was called the Bugs Bunny Fun House. The upper-right tile corner isn't even used in the prototype.
An unknown bit in the ending graphic bank, probably a placeholder.
The game was originally released in Japan as Roger Rabbit. Due to Capcom holding the rights to make Disney video games on Nintendo systems in the US at the time, coupled with the fact that a different game based on Who Framed Roger Rabbit had been made by Rare for the Nintendo Entertainment System, Kemco released the game in the US as The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle, with the following changes:
- The enemies are all slightly faster in Roger Rabbit. This makes the game much harder in the later levels.
The title screen graphics were changed:
The music was also replaced with a unique title song; Roger Rabbit simply uses the theme from the "house" type levels:
Also in the Japanese version, besides "Please Set Side B" being shown, if the disk is set on Side B it changes to "Now Loading", then fades to a separate "NOW LOADING" screen. This is (obviously) not the case in the international version.
Before the final screen is shown, a scene where Roger activates a switch and lowers Jessica down is shown. This sequence was cut in Crazy Castle but the tile bank for the "The End" scene still contains all the relevant background tiles for the cutscene.
Gorillas became Yosemite Sam, penguins became Daffy Duck, weasels became Sylvester and Judge Doom became Wile E. Coyote.
You collect hearts to complete the level in Roger Rabbit, and carrots in the Bugs Bunny variation.
