this looks 'normal' enough to me. there are lots of games that use dark grey as black, expecting it to look the same on an arcade monitor. Capcom / Mitchell are the most common offenders, but it wouldn't surprise me if the same applied here.

I Agree with Haze, it's the same "problem" seen in other games, like Black Tiger or Haunted Castle. I can clearly see the black squares there in the pcb video.
