Might and Magic: Secret of the Inner Sanctum (NES)

- This page is about NES game. For the series, see Might and Magic.
Might and Magic: Secret of the Inner Sanctum is a fantasy role-playing game with a 3D perspective. You control a party of adventurers who are on a quest to discover the Inner Sanctum, and as you journey through the land of Varn (misspelled in the game as "Barn"), you uncover a mysterious character named Corak and a villain named Sheltem. The NES game is a port of the original Apple II game.
Masaharu Iwata composed a unique theme for each different area type in the game. Towns, castle, dungeons, and the outside world all have their own themes, as does combat. Canon In D Major is an unusual choice for the game's title music, and the completeness of the song shows that Iwata spent a lot of time arranging it. One possible reason for this (without any evidence, it should be added) is Iwata arranged the song for pleasure or to test the capabilities of the audio driver he was using, and just decided to use the finished song in the game.
Aside from the seemingly unused fanfares, the song titles come from the official soundtrack, including the Theme of Sheltem, the use of which appears to have been cut out of the game.

(Source: Official soundtrack, Masaharu Iwata; Game lacks audio credits.)
The game has credits, but there are no audio credits. Masaharu has verified working on the game, and the game uses his sound driver.
This rip is missing songs.
Although the rip has all of the music, two of the tracks are corrupt. Track 5 (In the Castle) is missing the bass line, and track 12 (Game Over) cuts off too soon.
- Fixed by MrNorbert1994 on 2016.12.27 added JSR $8007 to the existing rips (driver is very similiar to Conquest of the Crystal Palace). Added SFX?*
Ripping NES music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.
