Music

There is only one song in the entire game and it only plays at the title and between the levels. Fortunately, the music is the theme song from the show. Like many other of Beam's titles from this era, the theme song is rendered at a sped-up tempo of 150BPM, possibly because this was the only tempo that earlier versions of Beam's sound driver supported. However, this isn't too far removed from the theme's correct tempo (130BPM), so it's less noticeable than in some of their other games.

Ripping NES music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.
