The Last V8 - C64 - Rob Hubbard



Music by Rob Hubbard

I remember this one being stupidly hard for some reason. Most older games are, but I dont think I could get very far into this one at all!

Paper Dolls - Fakebit - 4Mat



Music by 4Mat

This is my favourite track off his new album 'Decades' which you can listen to Here. You can also buy this album off iTunes.

I'm thinking of changing the tag of 'Fakebit' (which some people find dismissive) and replacing it with something else. I need something that distinguishes between tracks made and recorded off actual Chip hardware, and tracks made with that particular sound in mind, but with more relaxed restrictions. (eg made on a pc, with more tracks and effects allowed on authentic hardware)
Does anyone have any suggestions? Chip-Inspired?

Ristar - Megadrive - Tomoko Sasaki



Music by Tomoko Sasaki

I only ever played this on an emulator but much preferred it to the Sonic series of games!
Maybe its because you can headbutt rabbits! :)

Not really retro but I think chiptunes are still in the spirit of things, and this is one of my favourites! ;)
