  1. This is much better than the NES version, because it was one of the very first Capcom games released on the NES in late 1986 and it was really bad, because Micronics developed the port, and Capcom published it.

  2. Plus I remember beating this in an arcade as a kid with one quarter. There was a huge plane you had to fight at the end, and it doesn't come out here in this version.

  3. Took him 2 minutes and 29 seconds to insert a coin and push start…..The hell?

  4. I remember the arcade version I played was harder than this one, at least in South America, this version is very easy.

  5. My old memory remains…. Really famous game during 80s…
