For a 1992 game on the Sega Genesis, this game has a very short soundtrack, but what's there is good. This is one of the few credited works of Hiroki Kamata. As per usual with his games at the time, the music is tuned a 1/4 step sharp for some reason.

Hiroki probably wrote MIDI files that were converted to System Sacom's custom sound driver. It's also possible the music was entered in assembly or Music Macro Language, probably on a PC-98 computer.

The credits can be viewed after you beat the game. Alternatively, they can be shown by entering END ING .CH ECK as a password, filling in the rest of the characters on the password screen with periods.

It is unknown if Hiroki programmed his own sound driver, or if it was one of the other game developers. They should be contacted for verification.
