Taito Chase H.Q. for Famicom was released on December 8, 1989 in Japan.

It was the 28th title published by Taito on the Famicom.

This isn't a complete portage - arrows at stages #5; #6 and #7 (all 3 rounds) don't show up in tunnels.

Character designers are misspelled in staff roll as 'chractor designers', whereas software direction is in wrong order and tense (directed of software).


* This portage has 21 stages in total, 7 stages multiplied by 3 rounds. R-3 S-7 completion will show an ending scene followed by 'All round clear' screen and staff roll.

* Choose Arkanoid controller instead of regular gamepad. This increases steering precision. Note you can do so before stage #1 of round #1.

* You'll see no arrow in tunnels at stages #5; #6 and #7, so you'll accidentally run out of time.
