Title: Best Amiga Game Music
Post by: VEGNAcore on October 20, 2008, 06:05:39 PM
Just want to get some thoughts on amiga game music, what game do you feel has the best music, or any music that has stood the test of time?

I'd vote the chaos engine any day......... :-?  :-D

For me it is probably the theme from Epic, maybe not the best of games, but seasoned classical music with a twist is good!

Agony - had the most atmospheric music for me.
R-type - also had great sound samples and good track.
Hybris and Battle Squadron - Both good tacks!

I'm kinda late on this thread, but...

I loved all the music to original Lemmings
Especially level 14

Amiga Tetris from Infograms had some really good music too.
Title: Re: Best Amiga Game Music
Post by: B00tDisk on January 09, 2009, 04:02:21 AM
I'm late too, but the best Amiga game music is for the shareware/freeware game "Intruder Alert" - grab it off Aminet and play! :D
Title: Re: Best Amiga Game Music
Post by: jlariv8957 on January 09, 2009, 05:43:12 AM
I Really loved Crystal Hammer & Shadow of the beast
Title: Re: Best Amiga Game Music
Post by: DiskDoctor on January 16, 2009, 04:48:54 PM
Mine are (based on my emulated stuff now):

- Full Contact
- Lotus 2
- Pinball Fantasies
- Shadow of the Beast (all?)
- Magicland Dizzy
- Project X
- Lost Patrol
- Speedball 2

...wait... I'll retrieve my whole game list...

- Baby Jo
- Elf
- Killing Game Show
- Lemmings 1 (most tunes)
- Superfrog
- Turrican (2?)

That's all I can remember.  There's more for sure.

All I can see we all share roughly the same taste :)

One more thing; the best music I ever heard on Amiga (or any other computer) is from Enigma demo including one after rebooting it.  Personally I think this 512K piece of art scares people nowadays because it shows alternative usage of the space approximately equal to 3-pages long MS word document.

BTW there's a kind of music called micromusic.  Worth checking if you were an 8-bit kid.

What! No CinemaWare games?

Its not a game, but an early version of X-Copy used to have a killer mod tune when you booted from it.
