"One of the definitive soundtracks of the 8bit era" (by infamous, 11 Mar 2007) [8/10]
whether your listening to the sid file or the ay file the title tune to this game never fails to get your head bobbing along, the rest of the tracks found within the game are classics in their own right and basically its IMPOSSIBLE to create a list of classic 8bit tunes without adding a tune from this game.
The mods found here are accurate and pretty faithful to the original ones, the notes are all in the right places and they are non offensive to the ears, but seriously if you really want to hear these tunes properly go download the HVSC or Project ay and listen to the originals instead.
Ace 2: Arranged/Remixed tunes
"ace 2" (by infamous, 17 Dec 2004) [7/10]
this is a cover version of the c64 version.
one of them accurately pretends to be a c64 using different "sid" samples and has the FULL tune, the other uses more modern (for the time) samples but misses out the solo sections which were the best part of the sid in the 1st place.. pretty good for nostalgia
Body Blows: Game rip
"bodyblows" (by infamous, 20 May 2004) [9/10]
Alister brimble is one of my all time favorite amiga music producers and that favor has moved along as he has done so too.
so it was with a fond memory that i re-downloaded the zip full of all the tunes from one of the better beat em ups on the amiga.. bodyblows.
its not the ingame tunes that strike you though they are standard beat em up affair and seem rushed to be perfectly honest.
its the main theme.. a 92 rave tune of epic proportions... vocal "cmons!" airaid sirens and a driving beat make this tune one heck of a ride.
considering aswell that this tune was made during the 4track era, listening to it you wouldnt believe it was done in 4 tracks.. i heartily recommend this for download if you like dance music.. this coulda charted back in 1992.. now its just a fond reminder of what made alister brimble hot property back in the day.
