Lollypop AdLib Music

In 1994, the side-scrolling 2D platform game Lollypop was released for DOS, and in 1995 for Amiga. It was developed by Brain Bug and released by Rainbow Arts, featuring music and sound effects by Vibrants.

This blog post contains all the AdLib music made for the DOS version, saved as MP3 for easy listening. Most of it was composed by Thomas Mogensen (Drax) and Torben Hansen (Metal) in EdLib.

The peripheral tunes made use of all nine channels that the OPL2 chip supported. However, the level tunes only made use of five to make room for the sound effects in the remaining four channels.

This tune played when the time was about to run out. I think this was the only one I made.

All of the AdLib tunes have been saved as MP3 using the Ganbatte! .D00 Player plugin v1.1 for XMPlay 3.8.2 with the LAME encoder installed. I also used a web service to increase the volume of the MP3 files.
