In Japan, Space Harrier (スペースハリアー) was ported to many home computers.

Dempa published the Fujitsu FM-77, PC-6001, PC-8801, Sharp X1 and Sharp X68000 versions. The Sharp MZ-700 version is a fan-made software. Program was published in the home computer magazine Oh!X on receiving the Sega license.

These are tailored to the characteristics of each of the hardware. Sharp X68000 was brand new at the time of Space Harrier's release, and so its version was widely regarded to be the most accurate arcade conversion for many years. MZ-700 version is reproduced game screen by using the tiling color character graphic.
