NOTES TO THE TEST:
1) This ROM seems to be a bad dump, or, these bugs can ocurr even on the real console, due to code errors in the game
2) For test this ROM with Fusion, it must be enlarged up to 512KB in order for avoid to be detected as a SMD that prevented this demo to work because ROM was "de-interleaved".
