Mayday/Battle Zone

Battle Zone is a bootleg of Mayday, the 1980 game by the Japanese company Hoei. MAME claims the 3 sets of Mayday don't work because of an unemulated protection chip and that only the bootleg works, but the protection is actually hacked around, so really Mayday plays the same as Battle Zone. However, MAME doesn't class Battle Zone as a Spanish bootleg, which it is because it gives you a long message in Spanish when you have 1 life left (Ultima nave. Si quieres mas naves pulsar 2 jugadores. Si no pulsar 1 jugador.") Ave Fenix, a 1980 Phoenix bootleg by "Video Game", which is the same company that released Battle Zone, IS classed as a Spanish bootleg in MAME.
