    TRIVIA
    Released in December 1989 in Japan.

    This was SNK's last game to use rotary joysticks.

    Despite the game having an 1989 copyright, SAR - Search and Rescue was actually released sometime in 1990. A few months after SAR's release, SNK began to focus on the Neo-Geo hardware.

    UPDATES
    The US version is slightly different, it has the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen.
