Music

There are only 5 songs in the game. While they are catchy tunes, they can get annoying after playing the game for a long period of time. Neil Brennan, who worked at Beam Software as a main programmer, originally composed the Title tune, but Gavan Anderson and Tania Smith rewrote the NES version and added their own songs. Even the Carmen Overture makes an appearance in the soundtrack. While the game does not have credits, Gavan confirmed who did the music. The song titles contain the name of the source files. The music was written in Music Macro Language using Gregg Barnett's sound driver.

The source code gives the real names of three of the songs, along with their composer.

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