Various home computer ports of the game were renamed to Dyna Blaster, and all of them base their menu options and copyright text style on the PC Engine version's title screen, with the GT Com Cable Battle option removed for obvious reasons.

The IBM PC version's title screen has no clouds and adds a setup option to the menu that allows the user to configure controls for players 1 and 2 as well as use a VGA test which scrolls the screen back and forth so they can configure their display monitor.

A ™ symbol was added to the title (shifting the "MAN" part to the left slightly to accommodate it), various menu options were renamed to become more clear with the supported number of players, and the copyright information was updated to mention NEC as a publisher.
