I also particularly enjoy the Romancia tunes, because I love the original game.

Yes, is it good? Did you play the (translated) MSX version?

Played that one, too, but mostly the Japanese version when I was little. That's why it's also a matter of nostalgia. If it's "good"? That's a matter of love it or hate it. It's no Ys III for sure. Wink This quote rings true:

By the way, I edited my previous comment with extra goodies.

Are MSX related software houses also counted in? First two in my list are such examples.Smile Other games in my list have MSX conversion, though. When listening CBM-64 tunes, please remember to try different versions of SID soundchip. Tunes and sound effects may sound different on different SID version.

CBM-64 : Metabolis - Fred Gray, published by Gremlin Graphics 1985. Just to mention Gremlin Graphics published lots of games with lots of nice music sadly not known in the MSX world.

CBM-64 : Nemesis the Warlock - Rob Hubbard, Martech 1987.

CBM-64/MSX: Zoids - Rob Hubbard, Martech 1986. Only thing to listen in MSX version is the sound of the Zoid during loading, plus Zoid noises during playing.

CBM-64/MSX : Auf Wiedersehen Monty - Rob Hubbard & Ben Daglish, Gremlin Graphics 1987.

CBM-64/Spectrum/Amstrad/MSX : Nemesis, Imagine/Konami 1987.

CBM-64/MSX : Hyper Sports - Martin Galway, Imagine/Konami 1985.

CBM-64/MSX : Flight Deck - ?, Aackosoft/Eaglesoft 1986.

CBM-64/MSX/Spectrum : Deathwish III - Ben Daglish, Gremlin Graphics 1987.

CBM-64/MSX : Pitfall II, David Crane (?), Activision 1984.

CBM-64/MSX : Commando - CBM-64 - Rob Hubbard, Elite Software 1985 / MSX - ?, Capcom.

CBM-64/MSX : Krak-Out! - Ben Daglish, Gremlin Graphics 1987. Please note there are many ingame tunes to listen to on CBM-64!

CBM-64/MSX : Lazy Jones - David Whittaker, Terminal Software 1985.

CBM-64/MSX : Buzz Off! - ?, Electric Software 1984.

CBM-64/MSX : Avenger - Ben Daglish, Gremlin Graphics 1986.

CBM-64/MSX : Trailblazer & Cosmic Causeway: Trailblazer II - Shaun Southern / MSX - ?, Gremlin Graphics 1986 & 1987.

CBM-64/MSX : Future Knight I & II - Ben Daglish, Gremlin Graphics 1986.

CBM-64/MSX : Mutant Monty - CBM-64 - John Prince / MSX - ?, Artic 1984. Just to make you remember, that same game might have been different on different computer. Smile

CBM-64/MSX : Thing Bounces Back - Ben Daglish, Gremlin Graphics 1987.

CBM-64/MSX : Metal Gear - Kris Hatlelid / MSX - ?, Unlimited Software/Konami 1990.

CBM-64/MSX/Amiga : Vampire Killer/Castlevania - Kris Hatlelid / MSX - ? / Amiga - ?, Unlimited Software/Konami 1990.

CBM-64/MSX : Comic Bakery - Martin Galway / MSX - ?, Imagine/Konami 1985.

CBM-64/MSX : Gryzor/Contra - Jason C. Brooke / MSX - ?, Ocean/Konami 1988.

CBM-64/MSX : Green Beret - Martin Galway, Imagine/Konami 1986.

CBM-64/MSX : Mask III: Venom Strikes Back - Ben Daglish, Gremlin Graphics 1988.

CBM-64/MSX : Yie-Ar Kung Fu I & II - Martin Galway, Imagine/Konami 1985 & 1987.

CBM-64/MSX : 1942 - Mark Cooksey, Elite Software 1986 / MSX - ?, Capcom 1986. Please note, there are two different versions for CBM-64, the game is identical, but the music is different, both versions have a nice title/ingame tune. Hands up who likes MSX conversion´s music better!

MäSäXi: the (general) idea is quality over quantity.. One (sound)track at a time.. (or a (small) couple of related items, if appropriate/fitting). So please no listings, but pick/expose 1 (see first post & posts by others (e.g. #004 from John.)) I'm not invited this way to check one of those you mention out.. (Next to being a plain listing, it's really (way) too much..)

If you could edit your post, and pick/expose 1, like the others did, that would be really awesome.
Of course you can always share more later on.. Smile

(Btw, I hope I'm not only speaking for myself here in regard to the quality-over-quantity / take it slow / 1 at a time thing.. Wink)

I am sorry, my mistake. Smile I missed something in your rules. I hope admins could delete my previous post. Here´s my new, shorter try: Smile

MSX / CBM-64 / Amiga / NES : Vampire Killer / Castlevania - CBM-64 music arranged by Kris Hatlelid, Unlimited Software/Konami 1990.

I know just CBM-64 composer, sorry for that, but thought to mention this game, as probably not everyone knows that Vampire Killer was converted to Commodore machines. I played Vampire Killer first time on Amiga. Just wanted to give you a chance to listen a different sound. Smile

@MäSäXi Cool, thx Smile I started listening to the YT vid, and from that got to the Amiga version.
Pretty cool that one, nice & slow.. :) Stereo is a bit overdone though IMO.

Regarding the C64 version: not something I'll easily will listen to again, but an interesting experience nonetheless.. ;)
Still could enjoy Heart of Fire anyway.. :) (haha, almost sounded like floppy drive music to me.. ;) (It would make a good candidate for recording at least... ;))

I was thinking about sharing one or two (or more ;)) C64 tunes/soundtracks myself btw.. (I do like the SID :))

I checked your links, Amiga music sounded better than I remembered. While checking those videos, for my surprise, I noticed Castlevania had PC conversion too! Please listen, if you like PC speaker sound, otherwise jump to Adlib video. Smile

I got your point about SID and floppy drive music... ;) Yes, there is some (slight) similarity between those two soundchips..... :P

The PC speaker sound I won't dare (ATM).. Wink
Teh YT 'intelligence' already served me the Adlib version.. Could have been worse, and perhaps I also expected it to be.. Smile
(+ it's emulated.. so could be off here & there)

So I had another listen @ Alisia Dragoon...

Certainly a soundtrack I'll be coming back to.. Thanks! Smile

Faves: Stage 1-2, Stage 2, Stage 3 (excellent energy & 'harpsy' synth!), Stage 5-2 (cool synth is back Wink), Stage 6-1 (lovely.. Smile)

@John Do you have something to back those Rocky statements up, or it it your (and others) interpretation? (Which is of course most times the case, as long the composer hasn't made any clear statement about it.. Wink)

I certainly wasn't making the connection between Stage 3 and Eye of the Tiger myself... Smile
Stage 1-3 could as well be coincidence AFAIC, but I can hear the similarities (certainly now I'm being pointed at it) Smile

Again something that sounds familiar: the Staff Roll Smile
First I thought something perhaps like some Zelda (or other SNES game/RPG). *But* I think it's Grandia II, also from Game Arts, though that one's composed by Noriyuki Iwadare.

Anyone knows/played that one? I believe I got half way once, but stop playing.. I liked it quite a bit, but perhaps it's a bit too easy or simple in a way / at times (though I believe it's getting more challenging later on..)

Not too long ago I did try to give it another go again though, but did loose some interest after playing for a while (+ I kept messing around with the Windows version, and the Dreamcast version on emu.. Both have their issues, but the Dreamcast version should give the most authentic experience (if you can get the settings right)).
There seems to be some stuff missing from the Windows port, which, once you're aware of it, is enough to be uneasy about and ruin your experience a bit.. ;)

I do see there's also the Anniversary Edition out on Steam and GOG now, which is perhaps the preferred version to try then.. :)

BUT, nice story & characters (we all like Millenia, don't we? ;)) cool combat system. Back in the day I liked it quite much / was quite impressed by it, something new & fresh for me anyway.

The beginning of Stage 4 also sounds familiar btw :) (Perhaps also Zelda or Grandia or Chrono Trigger, or..?? ;))
