Dynowarz: The Destruction of Spondylus (NES)
|Dynowarz: The Destruction of Spondylus|
Dynowarz: The Destruction of Spondylus is an action game developed by Advance Communication Company and published by Bandai. The same two teams worked on the infamous NES game Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
The game is split up into three sections; a laboratory where you must destroy a reactor, then the caves and the outsides which take place in your Cyborasaurus. At the end of each outside section there is a boss fight with another Robosaur. There are seven levels. While the game has good graphics and music, it suffers from monotonous gameplay. There aren't even any new enemies or bosses for each level, so you'll be fighting the same things over and over again. The game tries to spice things up with the selection of weapons, but most of them end up being very unuseful.
The game contains ten songs. There is one song for each of the three sections in the game and they are all lengthy so it takes a while before they start getting to you. The game gives credit to not only ACC's main composers Osamu Kasai and Masaaki Harada, but it also gives credit to a composer Nobuhito Nakayama, which seems to be his only video game music credit (besides one PC Engine game). It is Michiharu Hasuya specifically which songs the three composers worked on. The Japanese version of Circus Caper (NES), which uses the same sound driver credits Sound Routine Version 4, so this was most likely the way the three composers made the music. Nobuhito may have also sent recordings or MIDI files to Osamu and Masaaki for them to program into the game. Both Osamu and Masaaki have been credited as programmers so they may have worked on the game's sound driver.

It is interesting to note that this was the only NES game that Advance Communication Company developed with game credits. Michiharu is not credited in the game, but has been confirmed to have programmed the game's sound driver.
NSF ripping is an arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site. The recording was made in VirtuaNSF.
