|DecapAttack for Genesis was released in October 1991 in North America.|
Gameplay remains similar to the Japanese version, albeit the graphics, characters, music and level designs have all been changed. Also, in the original Japanese release, players are killed if they are hit once, while in DecapAttack, players can choose to have up to four hearts (a total of eight hits) per life (though certain situations, such as touching lava or falling into a pit will cause an instant death). Flagpoles that can restore health in DecapAttack increase lives in Magical Hat.
