Battle Of The Bands - Pac-Mania

Namco's brilliant Pac-Mania game was the first one to take Pac-Man into the 3rd dimension, albeit from an isometric view. As well as being an incredibly playable game it was also known for having some superb music. In this thread we are taking a look at the soundtrack from the computer versions of the game. Only one question remains, which one is the best?



Atari ST / Amstrad CPC / Sinclair Spectrum (same music)



MSX 2 (skip to 0:28)



Commodore Amiga (skip to 1:00)



Atari XL/XE (2nd level music)



Commodore 64[/align:11bnxtrj]

For me the Amiga has the best music.

Didn't think much of the Amiga version either. Did quite like the MSX version - but I went for the Atari ST / Amstrad CPC / Sinclair Spectrum version in the end.

Edit: Hmm, some mixed opinions on this one eh?  :P

Looks like this was a pretty easy win for the Yamaha AY/YM versions
