Well, my version plays fine on do that, both difficulty switches
should be in the "a" position.  PAL version should be with both switches in
the "b" position.  One of the switches controls the colors, the other
controls the number of lines displayed on the screen.

I hope that helps...!  (and feel free to ask me other questions)  ;-)
