Tube Panic (ARC)
Tube Panic is an arcade game developed by Fujitek and published by Nichibutsu.
The game plays similar to Tempest (ARC), where the player moves through tube-shaped passages and must attack enemies.
The game has some good music, especially for a game from 1984. It appears the composer Ichiro Takagi had some jazz influences, as jazzy chords appear in most of the songs. Also, Ichiro added some sound effects with the music, giving it a slightly atmospheric sound. Takagi had previously scored arcade games for Irem, and was probably familiar with the sound hardware to make good music on it.
More than likely, Ichiro had to write the music in Z80 assembly machine code. He used a sound driver by Ryoichi Yamada.

- Game Credits:
It's surprising that a game developed this early has credits, but it does. Ichiro Takagi is credited as a planner while Ryoichi Yamada is credited as a sound designer. However, on a YouTube video, Ryoichi explained that he was only responsible for the game's sound programming, and that Ichiro Takagi composed the game's music.
