DJ Boy has been transfered to SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis from the identically-named arcade cabinet. While the Arcade Version has a brightly colored optic, funny animations and a terrific speech output, there isn't much left of it in the transfer due to technical reasons. At the end of the day, all we get is a short and straight beat 'em up with guaranteed frustration.
Aside from the the existing censorship of any Western home version, the Japanese Original Version is the preferable one because it also contains additional animated cutscenes (Intro / Outro). And even more important, the balancing is improved; slightly altered levels included (as noticable on the two screenshots of stage 5 for instance).
Compared are the censored International Version and the uncensored Japanese Version.
Stage 1 Boss - "Big Mama"
The stage 1 boss was originally black. In the Western Version, she has a bright pink shade. Probably because it had been considered racist. Furthermore, she attacks with farts in the Japanese Version. This attack isn't in the Western Version either, she tosses donuts around instead. Funnily enough, they missed altering her shade in the subsequent "ROUND CLEAR" screen.
Before fighting the actual stage 5 boss, one has to kick the but of EVERY SINGLE previous boss first without taking any break (in the Western Version, one can't even refill hsi energy). As before, Big Mama has a pink shade and misses the fart attack.
Stage 6 Boss - "Big Karate Mama"
The very last (and absolutely unfair) boss is Big Mama in a karate dress. This time, she has an entirely different skin color in the Western Version.
