The Sound of Play videogame music podcast

For many of us, it’s hard to think of almost any videogame without our minds conjuring up the music that accompanied it. Over the decades they’ve evolved from simplistic monaural beeps and bloops to full orchestral scores recorded in 7.1 surround, but from their earliest days right up to today, soundtracks have played an integral part of our memories of the games we played, and the times in our lives when we were playing them. What we aim to bring you with Sound of Play is a diverse sample of our favourites pieces from the many air-punching, spine-tingling, tear-jerking and grin-inducing videogame soundtracks we’ve heard over the years.


Cave shoot ’em ups – Cane and Rinse No.112

Danmaku fuss about it but we're covering a whole load of games in this issue instead of the usual one.
This time out we turn our attentions to small but perfectly formed Japanese specialist developer Cave Co. Ltd. as Leon, Darren Forman, James and new guest contributor Simon 'The Sonic Mole' Cole try to express and impress why bullet hell is heaven to them.
Music used in this issue:

1: Mad Symphony - Deathsmiles Image Song by Manabu Nakimi
2: DoDonPachi Resurrection Stage 2A by Manabu Nakimi
