Tim 1 is the only song for the entire ZX Spectrum port, although it is played on two different outputs. All versions of the Spectrum play the buzzer version at the title screen (slightly shorter with a length of 1.46.25). Spectrum 128 users will also hear the AY-3-8912 song playing in the background during level game play. Due to the weak processor of the Spectrum 128, the music plays at its normal tempo when paused, but slower when the game is running.
