I saw a topic about the music of MASK III.

Which reminded me...
I liked the (intro-)tunes of this games a lot too:

* Astro Marine Corps (cool game, cool music)
* Cosmic Shock Absorber (the game is horrible, but the tune rocks)
* Storm (strange game, very nice music)

Anyone who remembers more? It's such a while ago...

Well, this is a cool topic! Smile

- The Light Corridor (Infogrames): it has 5 great PSG tunes! (best music ever!)
- Avenger (Gremlin): coolest main theme.
- Hostages (Infogrames): woah, a groovy tune for the ingame!
- Megaphoenix (Dinamic): great intro song.
- AMC (Dinamic): another cooool one.

And I think "Mystical (Infogrames)" had a great intro song too, but I can't remember that Smile... and "After Burner" and "Out Run" and "Altered Beast" had great ingame bgms... woa, there are a lot of them! Smile

My all time favorite still is the Kings Valley 2 endtune. Lot's of musical action in that one. And don't forget such masterpieces as the theme of Terramex and the theme of Dunkshot (the HAL basketballgame). Very catchy. Nemesis 2 also has some great music.

Although it's probably concidered blasfemy here, and I probably get banned for this: try using a .SID player like Sidplay 2. It emulates the sound chip of the C64 (which (I'm sorry to say) rocks!) and there are a lot of original gametunes available on the net. Many European MSX-titels are conversions (Mask III for instance) and the original tunes often sound better.

* Police Academy (think it's something classical though)
* The Apeman Strikes Again (diddo)
* Last Mission (nice drumbreak)

Was there an MSX version of Altered Beast? Cool. Or am I misreading something? Smile

- Formula One Simulator
- Venom Strikes Back (oops, this is MASK III, the original topic! ;-)

Very good non-Japanese PSG music Smile
