Differences between Disk System and NES versions
The Famicom Disk System featured an extra sound channel that was not available on the Famicom or NES, so several songs have extra instruments and enemies make different sound effects than they do in the cartridge version. The songs with extra instruments are: the title screen, the ending and the Game Over screen.
Also changed is the saving system. On the Famicom Disk System, the game could be saved much like The Legend of Zelda. Outside of Japan, the game featured a password system that would have to be entered each time you started the game.
One of the flying type enemies that appears in the Sky World is Komayto, a seethrough creature with protruding teeth and three internal nuclei. Its design is based on the Metroids from the Metroid series, with the first Metroid game released only 4 months earlier.
The name has been localised from the Japanese "Kometo", which would more accurately translate as "Child Met".
