Yes, looks like it is.
Maybe Denis can confirm with some more details about this conversion.

I like Denis Gratchev's games. He has a style all his own, even the baddies are cute!

It's using the multi-colour character mode, which allows both hi-res and multi-colour chars to be displayed at the same time. The limitation is that the hi-res chars (and individual colour of a mc char) can only use the first 8 colours of the palette. You can see the multi-colour tiles used with the brick blocks (not on the sides but inside the play-area) allowing more colours in character.
