Music

There are only two songs in the game; one that plays while in-game and the other plays when you're in the training courses. The good thing about the music is that the song you will be listening to mostly throughout the game is over a minute long which makes it take a while before getting annoying. The music was sequenced, but the sequencer is unknown. The music from the NES version can be heard in the GameBoy, SNES, and DOS versions too.

The game lacks credits, something that all Eastridge Technology games have. In 2018, Rich Shemaria indentified himself as being the composer for this game, as well as Eastridge Technology being the developer. According to Rich, the music was inspired by the Seinfeld Theme.
