This week’s music was suggested by our forum user Renna, and actually comes from a game on a system that hasn’t been featured so far – Hudson and NEC’s PC Engine, known as “TurboGrafx-16” in North America. The game it comes from is also quite interesting – Star Parodier is a vertical shooter which is a parody of Hudson’s Star Soldier series, featuring a gigantic Bomberman mecha, as well as a PC Engine one (shooting CDs and HuCards) alongside the more traditional Paro Caesar spacecraft.
I have to shamefully admit – I’ve never played a PC Engine game… Only ports of such games, for example Bonk’s Adventure on NES. Anyway, back on topic – today’s song is called “Area 2”, and I’m sure you can guess where in the game it plays from the title… I hope you like it!
