Originally, game soundtrack contained just 4 MOD tunes. Three of them are for title, and the Orbital Flower is for highscore. The rest were a part of an addition freely downloadable music pack by Gieseke himself, however, in later versions, including the 20th Anniversary one, those tracks are provided with the game itself. They play if you press F5 during the gameplay.


The recording was made by Audacity from the game itself, to keep the hard stereo separated.

The tracks were named after MODs metadata and placed in alphabetical order, but menu tracks are placed on the top of this list, the highscore song is the last one.

This game has MODs in one of the subfolders of the game.

Also game use WAV sounds, so they also were included in the rip. A lot of them were taken from the DX-Ball (W32), but more compressed.
