Yes, Datastorm has long been one of my top-five favourite Amiga games, and I prefer it to Defender itself. :shock: In fact, it's probably my very favourite Amiga game, certainily the one I've played the most. It has great attrack mode music and in-game sound effects too. I don't suppose it's available on the CD32? :(

Excellent choice! Gotta give props to Lost Patrol, Laser Squad and Stormlord as well, which are a bit overlooked. Those had some good tracks on there.

Awesome was another good choice! One of my favorite OC ReMixes ever arranged Tim Wright's music from that game: http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01490/ Definitely check that out; I thought it took a good theme and really breathed new life into it!

I'm also going to mention Lotus 3 and Supercars II. There was just so much great music on that machine. Even games like Premier Manager got decent intro tunes.

Dont think it was ever available on the CD32 but if you have the an Amiga emulator you can legally download the game at the link above.
