One of my first video game sound tracks. Shortly after I joined Software Creations I learned how to program the music in Z80/assembly language and most importantly I learned how to program an FM synth.
The sound chip inside the Megadrive/Genesis was a Yamaha FM synth chip and it was a joy to work on.
The blurb about the game:
Cutthroat Island is platform game based on 1995 film of the same name that was developed by Software Creations and published by Acclaim Entertainment in 1995 for the Game Boy, Game Gear, Genesis, and Super Nintendo Entertainment System. When the game was first released, it featured a promotion by which players could find hidden treasure chests in the game and enter a contest to win real world prizes.
