- TRIVIA -


The 4 stage boss is actually disguised as a Power Loader seen in the 'Aliens' movie and the Konami title of the same name!


At the middle of the last stage, two cabinets of "Penta" and "Scramble" make an appearance (Note that "Penta" is originally a bootleg of "Pengo" :).


One of the bonus point items is a "Twinbee" doll.


King Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Konami Amusement Sounds '94 Spring - KICA-7631, 7632) on 23/02/1994.

- TIPS AND TRICKS -


* Some Tips : keep an eye out for unusual weapons, smash the light bulbs in the 2nd stage to temporary blind your enemies ! Also grab the piggies in this stage and they turn into footballs that you can use as projectiles ! (now you know where the term 'pigskin' comes from !) :)
