Version differences

Due to the gory gameplay, the original 1986 arcade game was banned in the UK. The unlicensed NES version was self-censored in the following ways: you can't shoot off the clothes of the girl in the graveyard, or shoot chunks of flesh off people in the Rack Room level (plus many of the body parts on the floor were removed), and the monk pushing a cart full of body parts was replaced by a nun pushing a baby carriage (though you can still shoot the nun).
