Manufactured by Bally/Midway Mfg. Co. under license from V-System Co. This game is known in Japan as "Rabio Lepus". For more information about the game itsef, please see the original entry.
Cut scenes from the original Rabio Lepus were eliminated in Rabbit Punch. These include a picture appearing when the spaceship flies out of the castle at the start, pictures when the two bunny girls and Rabbit King are rescued and scenes at the ending.
Also, in Rabbit Punch you can't buy in during the final 4 levels and when you use a continue, even if you were in stage 12, you have to start all the way back at the start of stage 9. In Rabio Lepus you can continue at any time, even on stage 12 without being sent back to stage 9. This makes the US version much more difficult and nearly impossible to finish compared to the Japanese version.
