Just wanted to let you know that the Famicom version of Double Dragon 2 features unlimited continues (US version as well but you have to enter a code on the game over screen) and that one can beat the game completely on easy in the FC version whereas in the US version the game ends after Stage 3 when you pick "Practice" difficulty.

You can read about it here: https://tcrf.net/Double_Dragon_II:_The_Revenge_(NES)#Difficulty_settings

So my question would be if the continue code is allowed for Double Dragon 2 and if yes, then wouldn't it make more sense to change to the Famicom version.
