Good one once again! Loved to hear about Rakuen. The game sounds lovely.

Some more versions of the Monkey Island title theme:

Amiga is interesting to listen to, since it's MOD music and doesn't use a synth specific to a soundcard (or n square waves), or CD audio, but has four channels to play whatever samples the arranger loaded up. Nice lo-fi sample quality too.

Atari ST sounds like something between the beeper/Game Blaster versions, with actual polyphony but less channels and mono.


Macintosh version sounds kinda synth-y but has a nice noisy sound quality. I assume this is Mac Classic II (judging by video title). I don't know much about Mac sound, apparently it's 8-bit samples in 22 kHz sample rate (and mono).. I wonder where the sounds come from, my guess is this is MIDI with in-system samples?
