    TRIVIA
    Released in February 1988 in Japan (even if the title screen says 1987).

    Licensed by Romstar for US distribution.

    The strange resolution of this game was due to the original cabinet which had a wide screen made out of three monitors.

    Banglar, the main enemy who looks like Yoda from the star wars films makes a cameo appearance in "Aqua Jack" 2 years after appearing in The Ninja Warriors.

    Brian Chapel holds the official record for this game with 188,900 points.
