What are some of your all time favourite Amiga game music mods?

One of mine is the Super Cars 2 in game music. That never gets old.

31st July 2008, 16:23
If we're talking Amiga, than I like the main theme tune to Body Blows Galactic and the theme tune to Lotus Turbo 2 mostly.

Oh, I have so many!

Powermonger opening theme
Battle Squadron
Beech Volley
Turrican series
Super Cars series
Pinball Dreams series...... I could go on for ages!!!!!

OMG! I forgot about Pinball Dreams. I recorded the music on to MiniDisc for listenig to, because it's so great!

Yes, definitely Pinball Dreams. Also Shadow of The Beast, all of them. And anything Allister Brimble did ended up being of high quality, including Superfrog, Indy Heat, Overdrive, Assassin and many more. What little music Hired Guns had was extremely good I thought, and I liked the ocuple of songs in Dune. And of course the Turrican games, Turrican 2 standing out among them.

That's off the top of my head, I know there's a lot more. :)

The main theme from Speedball II still is a favourite of mine.

Most of the music in Dune is great, too.

As is the Turrican 3 end credits theme

Other game music I liked: All Shadow of the Beast themes, Xenon II intro theme, Pinball Dreams, most Turrican music, most Monkey Island music, Utopia and Wing Commander.

Speedball II and Xenon II are indeed very good mods. I also like the mod of Dreamweb, it has a Carpenter'esque sound, which is great. I still have a small sample from the last audio quiz, click here (http://dc.classicamiga.com/root/classicamiga/quiz%20audio/quiz510.mp3) to listen to it. It reminds me of the movie Escape from New York.

A lot of good music in Monkey Island and DI's Pinball series, but if I had to pick one track it would probably be the Lotus II theme.

Lotus II theme.

A firm favourite of mine!

Hmmm so many SID classics! ...

tell you what we can get back to them, but before that, Game Music I have been impressed by.

Quake 1 CD background music... atmosphere to poop too!!!
UFO on the PSX, this si fantastic!... when I am playing the Amiga Version I have the PSX UFO CD playing in the background!!!

DOOM music CD was awesome as was AVP music CD :D.... ahhh great atmospheric tracks AND ZERO processing time! clearly a winner!

hmm i shall ponder more of this...

I should have specified favourite Amiga music. Sorry about that. Has been amended in the first post now.

My idea was to collect together the favourite tunes of everyone and release it as a mod pack.

STS and BASS music. Purely because they set the tone for the games.

Xenon II - Megablast had damn good music by Bomb the Bass.
