Yet another double-release, yay! This time was done inadvertently and I’ll explain why.

This is a platformer that’s considered a gem in the Amiga community, being called “Amiga’s own version Sonic the Hedgehog”, to the same fashion that Jazz Jackrabbit was dubbed with the same title in IBM-PC’s case. I remember having a great deal of frustration with the game when I was little, very hard to beat, even the first level! Strangely I remember this game having more sound options when I played it on my old (now defunct) 486DX machine, but it seems not to be the case. The game had the same sample-based music as on the Amiga (booooring!), but still the game’s soundtrack was worth doing it so here you go:

Composer: Allister Brimble
Game Release Date: 1993

Format: FLAC
Audio rate: 48000Hz
Bit Depth: 16bit
Tracks: 11
Channels: Stereo


So as the above soundtrack is not that big or long, I decided to slap to this post the next game I had on my to-do list, which is the X68000 port of Castlevania (Akumajo Dracula). This is an odd one, and as I’ve explained in the previous Castlevania release, I kept this one separate due for the fact that it uses different music compared to the original game. That’s the reason why I’ll be calling it this way, to avoid confusion. Konami are quite well known for not “conforming” well with their ports, releasing them haphazardly. But I think this time it’s to our benefit, as this way members of the Konami Kukeiha Club got to use the full capabilities of the X68000. I really recommend you give both versions of the game’s soundtrack a listen! 🙂
