Tsukasa Tawada is a Japanese composer, sound designer, and sound programmer who was one of the main composers at Jaleco. He later then worked for Genius Sonority, Inc. composing the music for some of their Pokemon games. One of his best works is for Ihatovo Story, and he has even posted YouTube videos playing songs from the game on the piano.

In the game Whomp 'Em, he goes by the name "Adios Amigo" (a reference to his 'audio' role). Tsukasa says this was just a joke and that he chose the name for himself. He said the Jaleco staff wasn't necessarily forced to use aliases in their games, but they liked to be funny.

Music Development


I planned a spec of the sound driver from Nintendo's technical docs. And a programmer coded its program.


  • Note: Tsukasa also lists Sorcerian for the PC Engine on his old website. However, the game does not give credit to him.
