Game Theme plays in the NES and Game Boy versions of Jimmy Connors Tennis while the player is playing a tennis match. The song was written by Mark Cooksey in C-Lab Notator for the Atari ST, in which he ran the MIDI file through a utility to convert it to 6502 assembly instructions in his sound driver.

Format NSF

The song plays during a tennis match. The song has only a couple differences between the PAL and NTSC versions; The NTSC version plays the song a few beats per minute faster, and plays a half-step sharp. As a result, the PAL version plays in the key of B, while the NTSC version plays in the key of C. It is most likely Mark Cooksey intended the song to sound the way the PAL version does, as the game was developed in the United Kingdom, a country that uses the PAL format.
