LMH Mixtape #167: Computer Game Music

In this special one time only episode the boizz dive into what would normally be an illegal set of tracks: computer game music!  They stick to the familiar 8 & 16 bit era (but allow CD-ROM games), so take this special opportunity to see how CGM is in some ways similar, but in many ways quite different from VGM.


Total toe tapper:  Quarth - BGM B-A
A relaxing day at the spa:  Leisure Suit Larry 6: Shape Up or Slip Out! - The Health Spa (Char Donay) (Hard is Good, Right?)
One hot cup of Joe McAlby:  The Light Corridor - Alien (In-Game Theme Music 1)

LMH Mixtape #165: Free Play 20
