A great gaming track a day

Recommended Posts

It's time to go back... back to France! But this time it's not a PC tune; I've picked the Amiga version of the soundtrack, because that's how I played it (at a friend's house), and how I remember it:

 

Moby/elmobo - Fury of the Furries - Lagoon (in actual fact, the title of this track is The Forest - it was used in the lagoon level, but that isn't what the composer wrote it for)

 

That and, you know, it's a brilliant tune. Far more evocative than the game deserves (I mean, it's a lovely game, but absolutely doesn't fit the mood of the music).

 

Also, while I've never enjoyed the Donkey Kong Country games, the track @Soulstar posted up there is lovely. Though perhaps not 10 hours of solid listening lovely ;)

Great thread.

 

This might be my favourite of all time. I think I played the Amiga Format Christmas '93 demo disc more than the actual game:
 

[uridium 2]

 

All the music in Uridium 2 is superb. It's an odd game, I was convinced it was rubbish even though I remember playing it loads, but I fired it up on UAE a couple of years ago and it ended up being the main game I played ,above everything on PC and 360, at the time for about a month.

Often overshadowed by the incredible Turrican 2 soundtrack but Turrican 3 / Mega Turrican had an amazing track for the first level. Hard to choose between the Amiga and Megadrive versions.

Megadrive:

Love this mellow tune. Suits cruising at night. 

 

 

 

always upvote TXR! The handling was so very flawed but if you hit the sweet spot with tuning it worked a treat – a reward for persistent players, I guess!

 

Not still making them are they?

Thanks @Camel.

 

Ok, my track for today – one of my favourite Master System games, love the characters, love the design, but especially this little happy tune. Good job too, because the game was pretty solid for 8 year old me, and I heard this track A LOT!

I can't believe we've not had a single Bitmap Brothers game feature yet! Time to rectify that:

 

Nation 12 & Richard Joseph - Speedball 2 - Intro Theme

 

Composed (as usual) by external artists - in this case Nation 12 (i.e. Bomb the Bass and friends), then masterfully converted by Richard Joseph, who I still can't quite believe is dead close to a decade on.

It might not sound like much now, but this was on a handheld from 1989 with comparatively weak sound hardware. It's incredibly impressive considering, and quite remarkable when compared to most Lynx games. The top comment is from LX Rudis, the guy who made it.
