The battle is between Donkey Kong on the left and Stanley on the right. Either players need to keep filling their spray cans and then defend their garden from the bees by spraying them towards their rivals side.
In Game A you play the computer and in Game B you play an opponent. In the two-player game (Game B) a handicap can be set so that both skilled and unskilled players can enjoy the game on equal terms.
Maximum score in Game A is 9,999.
Cheats and tricks:
Only a maximum of three drops of insecticide can be stored, so use your sprays wisely. Remember you must also have sprays available to defend your garden. On Stanley's side the insecticide falls faster the higher number you set the handicap at (Game B only). Against the computer (Game A), you can pause the game by pressing the 'SPRAY' button on controller 2. To release pause, press the 'SPRAY' button on controller 1 or wait 4 minutes.
In Game A you score 1 point every time a bee is caught in spray of
insecticide and moves towards Donkey Kong. When bee reaches Donkey Kong's side,
10 bonus points are awarded.
In Game A a miss is scored every time a bee reaches Stanley's side. After 3
misses (shown by faces on the upper right side of the screen) the game ends.
If you hold in Game A or Game B key the highest previous score will be displayed. If the unit is left as it is after game is over, time display will appear in about four minutes. A game is interrupted if TIME key or other game keys are depressed during game playing. Pressing ACL switch or removing batteries erases high score from memory.

The table will show how to tell the different Issues that were made:
The battery covers seem to have a number on the back, but they seem to vary a lot and I won't even speculate what the difference is.
