Music

Most of the game's music fits the theme of the game and gives you the feel of being in the Moscow circus, while other songs are meant to fit the fast-paced feel of Tetris. Ed Bogas and Paul Mogg composed the game's soundtrack. Ed wrote his music in Super Studio Session and Paul wrote the music in Studio Vision Pro for the Mac. The MIDI files were later converted into AdLib Visual Composer. Paul had this to say about the music:

We didn't have much to work with back then, just those cheezy computer synths.

Recording

The MT-32 recording starts with a 1, the AdLib recording starts with a 2, and the Tandy 3 Voice recording starts with a 3.
