Nintendo Famicom (1992) : This game was not really a port; it was an entirely new game released on the Famicom. The first level started off the same, but once you reached the first boss it was an entirely different game. In addition to replacing most of the levels from the 1990 arcade game, the 1992 Famicom game also included mini games between rounds.
