TRIVIA

Developed by Toaplan, Slap Fight was released in July 1986 in Japan by Taito.

This game is known in US as "Alcon".

Due to no obvious cause, a white "Space Invader" sometimes flies across the screen when you are approximately 60% through the game.

UPDATES

The English bootleg just says 'England' instead of the copyright message before the title screen.
