Garrison is a Gauntlet clone originally published for the Amiga.

Rather uniquely, Garrison (C64) uses the keyboard to allow 3 simultaneous players rather than 2 as in Garrison (AMI) and Gauntlet (C64). However, even if one player dies, you cannot add a 4th one until next level. Also, the graphics are worse than in both games and the scrolling is no better.

Music

The C64 soundtrack to Garrison was Ramiro Vaca's first task at Rainbow Arts. It is a cross between the Amiga original and Vaca's own compositions. It is also the first release to use Chris Hülsbeck's durable TFMX system.

Unlike the Amiga original, the in-game beat is not in sync with the level time.

Recording

All songs were recorded from VICE 3.2 with the model 6581 (ReSID) and a filter bias of -196. While the recorder considered this configuration most noticeable and interesting, it is unconfirmed how close it is to Vaca's.
