Information for the following ROM(s): parodiusj
|Parodius Da! was released on November 30, 1990 in Japan for 5800 Yen.|
This Famicom port has several differences with the arcade game and some levels were omitted, such as the Volcano and the Pinball stages. However, it features an exclusive and extra 'amusement park' level with penguins hurling at high speed down roller coasters and a giant duck/penguin robot-boss (and another exclusive boss that I won't spoil here). Another notable change is the giant girl at the end of the "Vegas stage" - she has a lot less flesh on display and wears a totally different outfit (most certainly due to Nintendo's strict content-control guidelines). On the same point, the large Moai-head girl (the boss at the end of the Moai-mothership) doesn't blow out disturbing Moai totems/missiles anymore but politically correct lines of hearts. Finally, there are a couple of hidden levels in the Famicom version - the most memorable one gets players to enter the Moai mothership (through his mouth) and fight him from the inside !
