Day 16: 16-Bit music
From Xeno Crisis (Genesis/Mega Drive, 2019)

Holy crap! Is this Prodigy-sounding jam coming from 16-bit hardware?? This narrowly beat Vapor Trail for my Genesis/Mega Drive pick.

Day 15: Boss battle music
From Battle Garegga (Saturn, 1998)

If the boss kills you, just say you took the death on purpose to manage your rank.

If this version is too “arcade” to count as Saturn music, use Christmas NiGHTS’s boss music instead.

Day 13: Music you like from a game you don’t like
From Viewpoint (Neo Geo, 1992)

Viewpoint was a strange experiment. The sampled drum loops were ahead of their time, but isometric perspective never worked for shmups.
