Open world = easy to map; lots of bullets = hard to map...

I had actually thought about doing this game once, but doing the Genesis version was enough "fun."

Another day, another map...

The SMS version seems not to have the palette changes of other versions, probably because it only has 64 possible colours so it really needs to stay in high-contrast daylight instead of fading to dusk.

Now I look at them, they do have different palettes.

Anyway, I have to be up early tomorrow so I shouldn't have done this:

Finished, maps here:

The Game Gear version looks totally different, but will be more hard to map as the stages are almost as big (3kx2k) but the screen's so much smaller.
