Credits

(Source)

This is the only game that Kuswara is credited for anything audio related, so he is assumed as the programmer, as the rest of his video game credits involve him programming. Peter Ward and Kuswara aren't credited in the Amiga version which has the same music, only Ed Bogas. This could mean that Ed Bogas composed all the songs and Peter only served as a music producer.

(Info)


The game contains two versions of each song, one with a .MUS extension and the other with a .SNG extension, each located in the root install folder. AdLib uses the *.MUS files in MUS (AdLib) format, Tandy uses *.SNG files. However SNG format is not identified and seems to have no header. There is an instrument bank file in SND (AdLib) format, FACES.SND, used for the AdLib music. These same music formats are used in Tetris Gold, but not in Super Tetris or Wordtris.

The VGM files were logged in ValleyBell's version of DOSBox 0.74 and trimmed to play properly.
