NES version

The NES version of Section Z features several changes from the original arcade game. The NES version lacks the two-player alternating from the arcade game, but adds the branching paths that allows the player to choose more than one route, as well as longer levels (in contrast to the arcade game's linear path of 26 sections). The instruction manual for the English localization of the NES version identified the nameless astronaut in the game as Captain Commando, a character who appeared on the rear packaging of Capcom's early NES games.
