[2] The German release is in English, but is censored and replaces the Nazi plot with a science fiction plot involving an alien invasion.

[3] The French release of the game, also in English and only published in France by Ubi Soft, is extremely hard to find and, thus, deserves a rarity rating of 4 stars.

[4] ROCKET RANGER was the winner of the 1988 "Arcade Adventure Of The Year" award in Commodore Computing International magazine (see HERE) [Source: Søren Grønbech's website].
