The feature itself doesn't take any sort of mapper... that's for sure. The problem is lack of space. The entire game crammed into 32k -- space was so tight, they even had to store the title screen layout in CHR-ROM. If you're going to add anything (read: add, not replace)... chances are you're going to have to add more PRG... which means putting in a mapper.

I think that's what the guy was getting at.
