    This game is based on arcade game 'Atomic Runner Chelnov'. The arcade game had a hammer and sickle on the title screen and the title was a reference to 'Chernobyl' - 'Chelnov' being the first 5 letters of 'Chernobyl' spelled in Japanese. When the game was released in 1988, the game became controversial. The 1986 Chernobyl disaster was only two years ago. The Genesis version dropped the references to USSR, and takes place in a unspecified setting.

    This arcade port seems to have way more detailed graphics than the arcade original. It's pretty fun, although the first boss seems unfair.
