Additionally, the timer will be set to 990 seconds. Note that this only works for hearts that come from the small yellow boxes.
Controller Input Recorder
When memory address $7E028A is set to $01, a controller input log is created. This was likely used to record the demo gameplay sequences during development. However, no programming has been found that enables this feature in the retail version. In addition, the game is programmed to store the input log to SRAM, which is not present on the retail game PCB. To create a recording-enabled ROM (US version), patch the following 3 bytes in a hex editor:
Offset, Previous value -> New value, Description/Notes 007FD6 00 -> 02 Internal header - change from ROM only cartridge type to ROM + RAM + BATT cartridge type 007FD8 00 -> 01 Internal header - change from 0Kb SRAM to 16Kb SRAM (2048 bytes, range $0000-07FF, the SRAM is mapped to SNES address $700000-7007FF) 01BBDA 03 -> 00 Forces log mode ON
Once started, it begins to log what button(s) are pressed (if any) of Up, Down, Left, Right, Start, Select, Y, B, and how many frames they're pressed for. As there's no GUI for this recorder, you'll want to use a debugging emulator to monitor the SRAM. Once the 256 byte buffer is full, the game freezes in a loop until Down is pressed, at which point the memory is cleared and a new log started in its place. Set an execute breakpoint on address $01BCC9 and dump SRAM range $700000-7000FF to a file each time it triggers to keep successive logs. See Notes here.

Old Stage Bonus
An older version of the stage bonus text. Apparently, there used to be a time bonus, rather than the flat stage bonus used in the final version.

The copyright information appears on the title screen in the Japanese version. "OPTION" was changed to OPTIONS in the international versions.
Same change as above, pretty much.
The odd grammar (XSTAGE) of the Japanese version was corrected (STAGE X) in the international versions.
