Music

The game has a short soundtrack. Instead of composing original music, the game's composer Mike Smith, copied Billy Joel's Root Beer Rag to the NES. It's a decent conversion that lasts over 3 minutes before looping. However, this is the song you'll hear throughout most of the game, though you have the option to turn music and/or sounds off. The Victory music was also re-arranged and used in Maxi 15 (NES). To compose the music, Mike wrote MIDI files on his keyboard and the MIDI files were converted to Odyssey's sound driver by George Rucker.

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

The VGZ files were logged in both MESS VGM Mod during gameplay and NSFs converted to VGZ using NEZPlay VGM Mod. The title music was trimmed to loop properly.

Audio Devices

The game uses the RP2A03 to play music and sound effects. The DPCM channel is not used.
