Game programmer Kevin Seghetti subcontracted the music to his friend Lars Norpchen, who composed 10 songs, not based on the original computer versions, but instead one of his favorite composers, Danny Elfman. The sound effects were transferred by someone from the Amiga version.

Norpchen composed on his Yamaha FB-01 and adapted his instruments to the Genesis's OPN2 chip (both FB-01 and OPN2 are based on four-operator FM Synthesis).

Norpchen has called his music "terrible", whereas Seghetti has called it his favorite music among his own games.
