Version differences[]

General[]

  • The blood on the title screen is green in the North American version and red in the Japanese version.

Enemies[]

  • Dracula was changed from a humanoid to a bat.
  • The eggs in Round 2 originally released Alien facehuggers, which were changed to bubbles for the North American release.

  • The ghost enemies in Round 7 were changed from jiangshi to more western-styled ghosts in the North American release, likely because players wouldn't recognize them otherwise.
