The Gameboy Show


I had a bunch of notes I wanted to say, but it got in the way of the music. You can check them out in the playlist below…

Playlist (Click the songs to view the show notes)

X — Title (Theme of X)

X was released in 1992 by Nintendo and Argonaut Software. Music by Kazumi Totaka.

X — Tunnel Scene

It was a 3D space shooter on the GAMEBOY. Here’s a gameplay video!

X — Junction Tunnel Scene

Argonaut Software would eventually go on to make Starfox on the SNES and Totaka would go on to compose music for the Animal Crossing series and other Nintendo games.

X — Totaka’s Song

Kazumi Totaka is known for hiding this song as an easter egg in almost every game he composes for. X is first game where this starts. Other games that have the easter egg can be found here.

Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening — Totaka’s Song

This is the only Zelda song I’ll play tonight. I just wanted to show off another instance of Totaka’s Song. I think it’s really a silly little tune, but it’s interesting that Totaka puts it into almost every game he works on!

Castlevania II: Belmont’s Revenge — New Messiah

Released in 1991, with music by H. Funauchi

Castlevania II: Belmont’s Revenge — Ripe Seeds
Castlevania II: Belmont’s Revenge — Original Sin

Final Fantasy Adventure — Rising Sun

Music By Kenji Ito

Final Fantasy Adventure — Fight 1

This is actually the first game in the “… Of Mana” series.

Final Fantasy Adventure — Courage and Pride from the Heart

I actually went and played this one for a bit… it’s kindof strange… It’s a little bit like Zelda.. and the writing is really bad.

Final Fantasy Adventure — Final Decisive Battle

The bad guy of this game is named Dark Lord. not THE Dark Lord…. Just Dark Lord… Also in the first couple minutes of the game, your friend Willy dies. How sad is that?
