There is no such thing as random in computer code. Everything is determined with an algorithm/rules. Have a read of this: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Random_number_generation

@fbueckert that's my point, we just don't know. You can say there's a good chance it's the same across platforms, and somebody else could say there's a good chance it's different. I prefer to say it's unknown.

@fbueckert There are variations in the game between platforms, in fact one level on the home version has some items in the "wrong" place. You can read more about that on my blog: flicky1984.tumblr.com So I would say that the tags for both versions are worthy. Most people are familiar with the home version, though I am more interested in the arcade version. There's a definite case for both.

My answer above was my first and only post on this stackexchange. I wasn't aware there was a spoiler tag. Now I am, so I've changed it. Next time, maybe just jump right in and edit rather than spreading negativity.
