Length 0:04.99

The Amiga port plays as you press the joystick button, the main menu scrolls out and the title screen fades in. The game has two bugs:

  • The game calls the music driver twice as fast as it should, but the song still sounds nice and was recorded (but not ripped) as such.
  • During the last chord, the title screen flips. While doing so, two sound effects are supposed to play, but since the driver did not yet support simultaneous music and sound effects, the chord is distorted instead. For recording, the driver was modified to not play sound effects.

The song was recorded from the main menu in WinUAE 4.3.0 and is track 2 in the JCB rip.
