Michiru Yamane and Tsuyoshi Sekito – Motocross Maniacs BGM3

Posted on January 17th, 2015 by Hitstun

You know, I really should post music here more often. I’ve got a ton that I want to put up, and I’m starting with the motorcycle puzzle platformer Motocross Maniacs. Before developers got a handle on the Game Boy’s sound hardware, they had to dedicate two of the Game Boy’s sound channels to music and […]
