  • Alyssa and Kevin are able to potshot even in Danger status.

  • A transferable extra starting item is included for all characters.
  • Alyssa now does a backwards jump instead of the back step.

  • If attacked while holding someone, Cindy can make he or she duck.
  • Kevin can now do an elbow rush that knocks enemies back.
  • George has a stronger tackle that can knock enemies over.
  • Jim can swing a melee weapon very fast, but it leaves him winded afterward.
