The whole thing is hacked together anyway, the intro has a scroller at the bottom which is scrolling spaces. The music in this one starts differently (with some siren) and has an additional pulse width sweep routine on top of the sequencing. (And it's located on a different memory spot as well, ShadowFire tune 2 isn't available)

Either nicely hacked and relocated, or badly ripped from somewhere else. My guess is the latter.

Groepaz, I didn't know there's something like this, thanks!

@Steppe: I didn't mean the saturation, I meant that the coder that sourced the pic has messed up the colourmap! (Not you!).

steppe: what stops you from cranking up the pal emulation's saturation slider a little bit? =P

Thanks Ian Coog! And yeah, Vice with PAL emulation just produces too pale colours. I still prefer too pale colours over too oversatured ones, though.

@ TLR: I'm constantly amazed how people find similarities between productions I have never even heard of, let alone seen :D

Strikingly similar to Moon Survivor.

you were right about Fred Gray, it's Shadowfire, tune 1, which is not set as default, so you just skipped over it :)

Someone please help find the first tune. I thought Whittaker or Fred Gray, but couldn't find it...
