Top Gun (NES)
Top Gun is a flight-combat simulator based on the popular movie of the same name. It made children everywhere suffer at the sight of their plane crashing every time they tried to land the thing after a mission. Despite that, the game was still successful enough to spawn a sequel, Top Gun: The Second Mission.
|Japan||US Revision 0||US Revision 1/Europe|
The Japanese version has one copyright screen, whereas the US and European versions have two. US Revision 1 revised the second copyright screen. In particular, it removed the claim that Konami had copyright and trademark ownership rights of the game. The European version uses the same screen as US Revision 1.
The Japanese version's map screen is completely different compared to the US and European versions.
Finishing a Mission
In the Japanese version, on the score tally screen when you finish a mission, you are shown an image of your plane with a star for each enemy destroyed on the side. In the US and European versions, the score tally screen is just a black screen.
In the US and European versions, there is no in-game music during normal gameplay. The in-game music appears at special times, such as while refueling, as well as during attract mode.
In the Japanese version, this is the complete opposite. The in-game music plays only during normal gameplay, and does not play at all during refueling or attract mode.
The takeoff ramp is different between regions.
Are the credits in the ROM of the US/European versions? If so, can they be accessed?
In the Japanese version, you get to see the credits after finishing the game.
