Populous is a God video game, originally developed by Bullfrog Productions and published by Electronic Arts for Amiga in 1989. The Sharp X68000 version was developed by Infinity and published by Imagineer in 1990.
The player assumes the role of a deity, who must lead followers through direction, manipulation, and divine intervention, with the goal of eliminating the followers led by the opposite deity. Played from an isometric perspective, the game consists of more than 500 levels, with each level being a piece of land which contains the player's followers and the enemy's followers. The player is tasked with defeating the enemy followers and increasing their own followers' population using a series of divine powers before moving on to the next level.
The music was arranged by Kazuo Sawa who used Infinity Sound Driver. It is not known in what way, but he certainly programmed the music in 8086 assembly.

Ripping X68000 music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.
