Very early on in the game, if the player makes certain unorthodox decisions in the Kara storylineSpoiler: it is possible to have both Kara and Alice die extremely early. If the player goes to the Main Menu right after doing so, Chloe will slightly break the fourth wall and scold the player for "letting them die". She will then tell the player that the "lives of these androids are in your hands".

In the Genesis port of the game, drinking 4 unique potions at the same time will result in the player instantly dying and the message "Winners don't do drugs" appearing on the screen. This is a reference to the FBI drug warning that was placed on all imported arcade games at the time.

The magic circle Serenity steps onto at the start of levels contain the phrase "vita non est vivere sed valere vita est" which is the Latin proverb for "life is more than merely staying alive."
Contributed by DrakeVagabond
The runes that appear in the magic circle every time Serenity uses the Demons' Score read "Tu Fui, Ego Eris." It is Latin for "I was you; you will be me." The runes under her read "Mors Tua, Vita Mea" which is also Latin for "Your loss is my gain."

Right that's that over with.





Firstly....
For those who might possibly be interested, rather than those who just want
to hack the program to bits....

Sega wouldn't let us have ANY credits on the game, so I thought we might
as well put some here.

I (Richard Aplin) wrote the Amiga and ST versions (though at the time of writing
- 12th Nov.1990 - I haven't started the ST conversion yet!)
I much prefer the Amiga (doesn't anyone?) so I have done that version
first, using all the extra hardware, then i'm going to bang out the
ST version when necessary.


"Uncle Art" (actually a limited company!) did the (not very good) music.
- Oh yeah.. Apologies and sympathy to Uncle Tom (the person!) for the
fuck up with his amazing Double Dragon II music!


The bitmap graphics were grabbed from the arcade PCB video output by Andy Heike
and Nick Vincent with the colour frame grabber, and the sprites were read,
decoded and converted from the arcade machine's Eproms by me. (Not a bit
of bloody help from Sega either!) They were remapped from 21 million to 16
colours by Andy Heike, Nick Vincent, and some students in Manchester.

I sampled the sound effects from the PCB's sound chip (not very hard at all!)

Tiertex wrote the protection check code (which is utter shit - well on form
for Tiertex!)

Steve Fitton and Tony Porter from U.S. Gold provided all the nagging and
hassle which was most unwelcome, but kind of expected anyway.




During the writing of this, I used:

In all the racing levels of Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, if you look closely at the registration plate of the opponents' car, it reads "96-17".

These 2 numbers are references to the years of the release of the original Crash Bandicoot in "1996", and the remake trilogy in "2017".

18 minutes after the end screen is displayed, if the console is not reset or turned off, the text changes to "TO BE CONTINUED NINJA GAIDEN II". This signals that the game actually takes place between the events of Ninja Gaiden and Ninja Gaiden II.

This message isn't displayed in the American version.
