Life Force (ARC)

The original arcade game features Miki Higashino's composition rendered on the YM2151, VLM5030, and K007232 audio chips. Peace Again plays when you beat the game as the credits roll. It is not known who arranged Higashino's music for the game. This song does not repeat.


Life Force Deluxe (ARC)

The deluxe arcade release uses the same music for the ending, and it functions the same way.


Life Force (NES)

Peace Again was arranged by Shinya Sakamoto, Satoe Terashima, and Hidenori Maezawa. Atsushi Fujio most likely wrote the sound code for the port. The ending differs between the American and Japanese releases. The American release simply displays the Konami logo as the music lays, but the Japanese version rolls credits and shows an image of the the pilot. This song does not repeat.
