The game features only a single song that repeating in the entire game, A Kind of Magic. Although the song wasn't featured in Highlander, some of the lyrics are heard, and it was heard in Highlander II: The Quickening and the TV series too.

(Info)


The game's music was logged to YM format using WinAPE, however a proper AY rip should be made. The recording was made by converting the YM to WAV and then to OGG.

Ripping of Amstrad CPC music is very arduous process so it's beyond the scope of this site.

Audio Devices

The game use AY-3-8912 chip for music, though it doesn't take advantage of the chips full capacity.
