There is some error about countries shown here. Game (playing from STX images here) freezes right at start when refresh rate is 60 Hz (NTSC) .
And it is not bug but there is test for refresh rate, and if not 50 Hz it freezes. Would be good to correct it. See thread at atariage ...

Thanks, I removed USA from the list.

Press UP on the joystick at the title screen to add credits. This is also buried in the manual. The manual text is on the PP HD version at
