* FakeDifficulty: The arcade version does not refill your life bar at the start of the next level. For example, if you loss half of your health on stage 2, it will not be refilled when you get to stage 3. Your health will only be refilled if you lost a life. This was fixed in the SegaMasterSystem and TurboGrafx16 ports.

In the metropolis of New York City, law and order have broken down. As the Vigilante, you must take the law into your own hands and venture into the mean streets of New York in pursuit of your kidnapped girlfriend Madonna (nope, not [[{{Madonna}} her]]), engaging thugs in street combat.

* DubNameChange: Madonna was renamed Maria in the Master System version, likely to avoid having people mistaking her for [[{{Madonna}} you-know-who]]. Almost all of the enemy characters are also named differently in the manuals for both, the Master System and [=TurboGrafx 16=] versions.
