Trivia

Version differences

The game was released in 1993 in Japan and 1994 in America. However, the game had to have one of its parts censored. More precisely, in the sixth scene. Before this stage, the thief had stolen one of Catry Sacred Stones that Ardy was caught. In the sixth stage, both are swallowed by a Monster.

In the American version, at this stage, you find Catry fainted while Ardy recover the stone. However, in the Japanese version, Catry turns up dead, represented by a pile of bones, while a few drops of acid fall on it.
