- TRIVIA -


This is an enhanced adaptation of the Sega Master System game. It was released in 1988, a year after its console counterpart, and adapted for the arcade by Sunsoft, who also handled the Famicom ports of the Fantasy Zone games in Japan.


This version is very similar to the Sega Master System version on which it is based. The graphics and sound are seemingly identical, but a few changes have been made. There is a timer that forces the player to progress quickly through the stages, and counters that show which targets have been destroyed, like those in the first game. There are also new end-of-level scoring bonuses.
