All 1 (FDS)
All 1 (オール１ Ōru 1) is a puzzle game and the third game in the Famimaga series. In All 1, you play as a ladybug who must two die to show the number one face up, hence the name of the game. The game consists of 50 levels which gradually get harder.
The game was designed by Satoru Kataishi.

All 1 has a pretty good soundtrack for 1991. There are three different songs for the rounds, but they don't play one after another. Instead, every 10-20 rounds you complete, a new song will play as the main round theme, so the music can tend to get annoying.
There is also an unused song which sounds like an alternate version of the Famimaga screen, which was probably its intended use. It may have also been a Game Over song, but there is no way to get a game over in the game.

(Source: Musical comparison; game lacks credits.)
The first three Famimaga games don't have credits. When you beat the game, you get a one-screen ending, and no matter how long you wait, it never goes to a credits screen. The only credit the game has is for the game designer Satoru Kataishi. Yoko Watanabe is credited in the sequel Clox, which also uses the same sound driver as the first three games. The only other known composer Koji Morikawa wasn't credited in Tokuma Shoten's other games until Janken Disk Shiro, the sixth/last game in the Famimaga series.
Ripping NES music is an arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site. The music was recorded in VirtuaNSF.
The game uses the first sound driver by Tokuma Shoten Intermedia. Takeshi Sawada is credited in Janken Disk Shiro for programming the second driver, but it is unknown if he programmed this one.
