At last! someone else who likes Colony.I loved this game on A8, bought it, no idea what it was like etc, loved it, then quite taken aback to see it get a slagiing on C64 in Zzap 64.Think few other mags gave it poor reviews on other systems, claiming it soon got boring.

Anywho music wise, Atari XL/XE version by far the best, then CPC/MSX, C64 comes in 3rd (expected better given SID chip) and 4th is the god awful Speccy music.

That's pretty much why I'd put the Spectrum 3rd and the C64 last. I laughed when I heard the C64 one. The Spectrum one sounds pretty much like what I'd expect for beeper music.

Atari XL/XE.  No contest, as far as I'm concerned.  :)

Going to the final frontier, gaming...
