It was the first arcade video game to show scores in the trillions!
The game forbids the initials 'SEX' on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to 'CAP'.
Note: There are 20 different endings! 10 of them are bad endings if you reach level 6 using more than one credit and the other 10 are good endings if you beat the game using only one credit.
Sony Music Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (GigaWing Original Soundtrack - CPCA-1026) on April 21, 1999.
