Composer Yuzo Koshiro
Released 1987-07-17
Title Origin Translation
Loops Yes

Ground Theme (地上のテーマ) is heard as you make your way from the Worzen's house to the dungeon. The tune begins with a fade in accompanied by limited percussion and harmony, but grows to become more lively while remaining pleasant. The song is pretty much the same between the NES and MSX versions of the game.

The title is translated from Japanese on the official MSX soundtrack.

The song for the MSX is a bit more chippy sounding, and the fade in at the beginning of the song isn't as impressive. The song is track 13 in the KSS file and is played on the AY-3-8910 on the MSX and the identical-sounding YM2149 on the MSX2.
