Highlander is an action game loosely based on the movie of the same name. The Amstrad CPC port is based on the original Commodore 64 release.
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. The music is of lower fidelity than the original Commodore version.

The alias of "Crwth" is currently unknown. We contacted Antony Crowther, but he denied working on the game, as he never programmed for the Amstrad CPC. A developer at Ocean has speculated that it could have been Fred Gray. We contacted Fred Gray, who said it wasn't him.
Ripping of Amstrad CPC music is very arduous process so it's beyond the scope of this site.
The game use AY-3-8912 chip for music, though it doesn't take advantage of the chips full capacity.
