Truxton - Hope (Stage 3) (SEGA) (PRC397)

"Hello again!

As much as Phantasy Star Month has been great, I'ma break the chain, with a classic underlooked game, and also one of the better soundtracks of the earlier period in Mega Drive/Genesis lifespan. The game is Truxton and the track name is Hope. Also know as Stage 3.

Truxton is a shoot-em-up released in 1988, ported to the Mega Drive in 1989. It's known for being one of the more calmer shoot-em-ups. As unlike say, Recca, or Battle Garegga, it doesn't bombard you with enemies and fast speed. There's also multiple endings which i did not know, as i didn't get a chance to finish the game (Largely because it goes on for a bit. Still great fun though), so i looked it up. All in all, a solid fun gaming experience.

This soundtrack is quite a fast one, but that's because it's actually a port of the arcade, which had the same tunes, just slower and included drums. Despite differences both have the same idea, of a fast melodic 80s synth-pop kind of sound. It's very ripe with melody despite it being only about 30-40 seconds long. The entire soundtrack is underrated and should be considered and even remixed, yet for now, here ya go."

And of course, as always, because it's nice to know. I like to make my own MIDI.
