TRIVIA

Dark Adventure was released in September 1987. Due to the complexity and difficulty of Dark Adventure, it never faired well in the arcades. The title would have been much better suited for the home game market. So, Konami updated the game on month later as "Majuu no Ohkoku [Model GX687]"

Kelly Flewin holds the official record for this game with 123,300 points on June 4, 2006.
