Episode 9-6 Password and Save Select

episode_artwork86

Okay, where did I put that password. Is it in the back of the game’s manual? Is it on a post-it note stuck to my Gameboy? Oh there it is, of course! I had it tattooed on Pernell so I would never lose it!

This week we get goofy and listen to music composed for password screens and save select screens. Password functions are typically in older game systems that didn’t commonly support full game saves, so many of our tracks are from the classic 8bit and 16bit eras. We also included “save select” music to help cover more ground 🙂  Enjoy the tunes!

Track list:

  1. File Select – Yoshi: Topsy-Turvy – Gameboy Advance – Tatsuyuki Maeda, Masaru Setsumaru
  2. Password – The Guardian Legend – NES – Masatomo Miyamoto, Takeshi Santo
  3. Password – Arcus Odyssey – Genesis – Motoi Sakuraba
  4. Password – Mega Man V – NES – Mari Yamaguchi
  5. Select-A-Live – Live-A-Live – Super Famicom – Yoko Shimomura
  6. Keep An Adventure Log – Legend of the Mystical Ninja – Super Nintendo – Kazuhiko Uehara, Harumi Ueko
  7. ABCDE 12345 (Password Screen) – ABSRDST applebadge-sm
  8. I’m Taking It All Back (Goonies II) – TJ Nekko
  9. Rams In Space – River City Ransom: Underground – PC – Rich Vreeland (Disasterpeace), Dino Lionetti, Alex Mauer
