In Emulicious, I opened the Tilemap Viewer and inspected the first splash screen ("CHARACTERS OF...") and if I hover the text it tells me it comes from ROM $5D492. This looks like some semi-compressed raw tilemap data - there seem to be LZ-style backreferences to previous values, but I didn't fully understand it. The decompression routine seems to be at $078b and it looks like it has bit-packed flags for each byte to say if it's raw data or a backreference.
