Format NSF

The song plays at the title screen. The song has only a couple differences between the PAL and NTSC versions; The NTSC version plays the song a few beats per minute faster, and plays a half-step sharp. As a result, the PAL version plays in the key of F, while the NTSC version plays in the key of F#. It is most likely Mark Cooksey intended the song to sound the way the PAL version does, as the game was developed in the United Kingdom, a country that uses the PAL format.
