Episode 19 – Music in Video Games


Once again the Retro Asylum team are back with another fun-filled retro gaming action-packed episode of the UK’s No.1 Retro Gaming Podcast.

Today’s show is running a few days late once again, but like the old saying goes “better late than never”.

Andy talks about being tired and buying a new N64 at Retro Game Base.

Glenn talks about Alan’s Bread… aka Alien Breed and Mortal Kombat.

Last but not least this episode ends suddenly because Andy’s wife arrived home during the recording of the podcast.

    Sounds like Dad’s job in the Heathrow APCOA Car Park he is thinking of quitting as he is given too much as he is always having to cover other peoples work duties and his having no time off to spend with us and to do the things he want.

  2. Andy says:

    Well I’m hoping to be driving soon as that will sort out my commuting since I can drive back and forth work at any time unlike traveling via train where i can only travel at certain times.

    But yeah stay tuned as we got out listeners coming on the show from Ep 21 and half and also we are announcing the Amiga give away and reinventing the podcast from Ep 20.

  3. TEOL says:

    Andy you were spot on. The Atari ST did use the Spectrum 128k sound chip.

  4. Adam says:

    Some games have a lots of brilliant music, I lost count on which tunes I enjoyed from the systems I owned.

    Talking of music composers, what do you guys think of Tim Follin?
    I’ve heard so many good comments about him and I looked up his name on YouTube, he really is one of the composers who really took sound chips on various systems to It’s limits, especially the 48K Spectrum.

    Infact, I believe he also did the Gauntlet 3 theme that you played at the end, his music was incredibly powerful. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Andy says:

    Yeah I love folins music on the 8bits:)

    Would love to get him on the show either tim or mike

    Nice one guys, shame you had to wrap it up so soon. I will never forget the first time I heard the Last ninja 2 – central park level on c-64 absolutely epic! My fave game tune ever. Zarjaz is another great one.

  7. Dean Swain says:

    Andy you really need to give Goldeneye a chance mate, it’s a superb game!

    Another great show,I think the Amiga soundwise is much better than the Atari ST.
    The first game i really noticed was on the intro to Shadow Warriors, if you see it on the Amiga and then on the ST it sound pathetic.
    And Glenn is also right on some games the C64 sounds better than the ST for example Last ninja 2.
    In some ways the C64 music on Last ninja 2 is evern better than the Amiga version.

  9. scopie says:

    I’ll have to go with Glenn’s music choice this time.

  10. Adam says:

    Oops, forgot about my say on the PS1 music challenge.

    It really is a tough choice. I’ve got DD2 on the PS1 and I like the title screen tune, but the tune on the “secret credits screen” of the game is by far the best one from it.

    I’ve never played Castlevania, but I was really surprised to hear how exciting the theme tune from Andy’s choice is.

    Hmmm…….TIE ๐Ÿ˜›

    Great show guys as good as always and only a few things to say

    Music dose identify a game and if you want a perfect example of well used music look at the One Winged Angel track From final Fantasy VII it makes the final boss fight absolutely epic

    Sorry Andys track wins hands down Glenn the soundtrack from SOTN was another masterpiece and complimented the game so well

    And as far as Alan Bread on the iOS i hear there will be 2 upgraded versions on the android called the Kingsmill and Hovis Edition
