Boss - Raptor (DOS)
- This page is for the Raptor: Call of the Shadows (DOS) song, for more titles see Boss.
Boss 1, Boss 2, and Boss 3 are three unused tracks in the data files of Raptor: Call of the Shadows (DOS). Their file names are boss1.mus, boss2.mus, and boss3.mus.
The first unused track is just a repeat of two notes played for several 5.78 seconds. It's difficult to speculate how this would be used as a boss theme, perhaps a warning sound for the upcoming battle?
The second unused track is a series of four notes played for several bars, then it raises in pitch and continues. The track is 20.12 seconds long.
The third unused boss track actually sounds like a proper song. It has an electric guitar melody with a nice percussion backdrop. The song is 39.24 seconds long and quite well polished, so it's odd that the developers didn't end up finding a use for it.
In the game's data files, there is a boss4.mus file, which was probably intended for boss music as well as it has a sinister sound. However, the song ended up being used for the game credits.
