dang, sword maniac is such a massively better name!!!
I guess I’ve shared this elsewhere and everybody knows it these days, but this game is pretty much the epitome of this. That music is pretty well unbeatable and shows why the SNES soundchip is incredibly powerful (samples!!)
It’s pretty interesting comparing to the virtual boy version, which is basically like if the game were ported to the pc engine. check it out especially at 9:31 (I didn’t timestamp it so you can check it all out):
the genesis version is completely different, and is pretty good on its own, but next to the SNES version it’s really nowheresville
I swear some footage of the saturn prototype got released but I’ll be danged if I can find it now. anyway, one of the all time great soundtracks on a game that I can’t imagine anybody caring to play.
[edit:] the footage I was thinking of was from star wars… oops. no music in here, just sharing to close the loop.
