Clu Clu Land is one of the original 18 titles released with the North American NES way back in 1985, but it was available even earlier in Japan for the Famicom. It's a reflexive puzzle game where you control a bubble fish who must uncover the golden ingots in each stage by moving over them. Once you uncover every ingot you advance to the next stage. During each stage monsters and pitfalls will make maneuvers difficult for you. Like most single-screen arcade games released for the NES, the game lacked any real depth. Also, while the concept is easy to understand, the controls take quite a bit of time to get used to.

The music—much like the game—is rather primitive, but for 1984 you couldn't expect much. The soundtrack mostly consists of short jingles written by one of Nintendo's original composers, Akito Nakatsuka, who was famous for composing Zelda II's soundtrack. In the VS port, some of the songs were changed with identical tunes.

The track titles come from the Famicom 20th Anniversary - Original Sound Tracks, Vol.1 album.

Ripping NES music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.
