Just thought of another NES -> Genesis conversion. Battletoads! I know that the game (rightly) is unloved around here, but I’ll stand up for the Genesis version because they fixed all of the NES bugs, and it’s simply more enjoyable. Fun fact - Battletoads for Genesis is one of Arc System Works’ earlier work for hire games.
The NES version has a very minimalist vibe to it independent of the 4-channel audio on the NES. Lots of silence in the compositions and not much harmony.
The Genesis version has more harmony, but the mix and levels are the primary change. Some of the melodies in the NES that had a “sound effects” feel to them have been considerably de-emphasized. Surf City is a good example of this.
robinhoodie Oh, I totally forgot about the Alpha 3 soundtrack situation. I enjoy the announcer yelling DON’T GIVE UP! at me, but the music is very forgettable. The Alpha 2 Sagat theme is incredible.
Also, it looks like you made a mistake picking your tunes. You should move your cursor either up, or to the left. It’s OK, it’s an easy mistake to make. :-P
