Also, one can easily notice the glitchy surfaces in screenshots 2 and 3.

I've never quite understood if it's meant to represent some kind of '3d' effect, ie, you can go behind things....

The game just seems like they were trying too hard to do sometihng cool, and ended up with something that just seems like a complete mess...

I'd be interested in seeing how it runs on a real PCB.

True. I'll confirm it, label it possible pending some PCB video or other analysis.

pretty sure it's a bug given Kale's other findings... The NS2 driver seems very broken in rather subtle ways.

It's a bug. It was previously fixed then broken again. It doesn't ocurr in 0.201. Regression version is mame 0.202
But at the same time, 0.202 fixed 03797 and 07029 of this game (both problems with credits)

BTW, I haven't found any pcb video of the game, but I found this video of wii's virtual console version. That "falling into terrain" bug is not present:
