TRIVIA
 
Released in December 1986 in Japan.

This game is the debut of Sega's first mascot, Alex Kidd who mostly appeared in various games for the Sega Master System. Alex's only game that was made for the Sega Mega Drive was "Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle" in 1989. Alex Kidd's last game was titled "Alex Kidd in Shinobi World" which was somewhat of a crossover between the Alex Kidd series and Shinobi. In 1991, Alex Kidd was replaced with a 'faster than a speeding bullet'-type character called Sonic The Hedgehog.

Opa-Opa, the main character from "Fantasy Zone", appears as the container for the 'Miracle Ball' in round 2 of this game.

Sony Music Entertainment / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Sega Arcade 80's Vol.1 - SCDC-00245) on 19/02/2003.
