The driver and music data were slightly adapted from the Atari 5200 version. Level Completed now plays on two sawtooth waves.

It was recorded from VICE 3.2 with the model C64 old NTSC, but sounds the same on every SID chip. In the rip, it is track 3.

The music data is identical to the melody of the Atari 5200 version. With only one voice, the bass has been omitted, and the melody drowns out the sound effect of counting mogwai until it ends.

The driver was converted from 6502 to x86 assembly and itself converts POKEY pitches and volumes to PC Speaker pitches and volumes (namely one) as it plays.

Level Completed plays on two square waves. The last bass note is cut off because of a bug in the driver (which most other audio circumvents with an extra rest at the end).
