The Blues Brothers (NES)
|The Blues Brothers|
The Blues Brothers is a platforming game for the NES based on the movie of the same name. The player picks one of the two Blues Brothers and uses them throughout the whole game. The game's noted for it's awful gameplay. The graphics are decent though. It's also a really difficult game since most of the enemies you can't kill. The player can kill those enemies by jumping on a dog.

There's only 4 songs in the game, but the quality of the music makes up for it. The songs are directly from the movie. These songs are the Peter Gunn theme, Everybody Needs Somebody, Almost, and Shotgun Blues. After the songs end, it goes to another song in the game, so the music does not loop. The developers are listed at the end of the game by their first names as the band members. Programmer Eric Caen didn't remember much about the music for Blues Brothers except it was composed by Christophe Fevre as MIDI files which were then converted to the NES. He said the MIDI files could have possibly been composed in CuBase for the Atari ST.
Eric had to program a sound driver in 6502 assembly, as well as program the MIDI conversion tools. Eric said it was a challenging task, but he was satisfied with the overall output.

Ripping NES music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.
