differing musics

Postby AndyUK » Thu Oct 29, 2009 10:21 pm

The three 8 bit version actually all have different music. I know its quite common for Commodore 64 conversions to have a different tune because they were almost always written by a different team altogether. But its unusual for the Spectrum and Amstrad versions to have different music. The only other game I can think of where that had happened before is Dizzy 1 where the Amstrad got an entirely original piece of music written for it and the c64 and spectrum musics were the same compositions if i recall (and only beeper music on the spectrum).

I might have to make a youtube video showing this some time.

The C64 Dizzy Panic music is very good, I think.

On the Spectrum, Panic Dizzy and Kamikaze shared the same music.

And the music from the Commodore version was re-used for the 16-bit versions of Fast Food and Kwik Snax.
