The title of this game translates from Japanese as 'Twin Bee Yahhoo! - Uproar In A Mysterious Land'.

The J-Pop song played in attract mode (make sure that get it via the dipswitches) is called 'Bokura no Suteki' and is sung by Mariko Kouda. Here are the Japanese lyrics :

kanashimi no mori o, sama you kimi wa -

futo sora o mite, uchuu o omou -

ikutsumono ginga -

IMEEJI shita, sono mune ni -

umareru yuuki -

yume o mite, aruki daseru no wa -

bokura no SUTEKI sa, kimi to -

mirai e yukou -

soba ni ite, sasae au koto wa -

inochi no SUTEKI no hitotsu -

kodoku ni ochinaide.

Here is the translated version :

You are wandering about the sorrowful woods -

See the sudden skies, think about outer space -

A lot of Galaxies -

On that imagined chest -

The courage to be born -

See the dreams and we can begin to walk -

You are lovely to us -

Going to the future -

It's in the side and supports each other -

The one lovely life -

Don't fall alone.

King Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Twin Bee Yahhoo! Original Game Soundtrack - KICA-7681) on 07/06/1995.

- 30th March 2003: R. Belmont enabled the shadows in Konami System GX driver and tilemap alpha blending in the Mystic Warriors driver.

Tang added the infrastructure support for 3 independent colored shadows/highlights as required by the Konami games, and he cracked the protection in Violent Storm.

The sound is fully emulated but there are some graphics problems in the 3 games that are working (Gokujou Parodius, Twinbee Yahoo! and Sexy Parodius) and the rest of the games suffer from unemulated protection.
