[size=180]Part 1: Computers - Level 1 Music (Moot) [/size][/align:1ff2cx7m]

[align=center:1ff2cx7m]Space Harrier is one of the most iconic arcade games Sega produced and the soundtrack remains a big favourite among chiptune fans. The famous Moot music (from level 1) still sounds wonderful to this day and arguably the best tune of the lot. Space Harrier got a great showing across many home formats so this battle could be the biggest yet with it being split up into 3 separate parts! First up we have the 8-bit home computer versions.[/align:1ff2cx7m]

It's a close one for me between the A8 and 2 of the Japanes computers, the Sharp X1 and NEC PC-8801, but I have to give it to the Atari because that version is just so impressive considering it is playing on 70's hardware!
