Are you a bad enough dude to
The instrument text in one of the game's music files (mod.spaceing-piss) contains a happy little message from the musician, Barry Leitch:
this is the piss butchered version if the ingame music i guess they will use this one... i guess this will be my last amiga project for gremlin as they have decided to get their own in house muso... .................... by the way this tune is (c) barry leitch not gremlin or id... its called artistic copyright, this code version is (c) id. the actual melody etc is (c) me ! so if this gets converted to the snes or sega by someone else then i will be owed money.... i kid ye not... i didn't beleive it when i first heard it but its true ! : and i will sue.... feel free to rip this baz leitch 4/3/92

With regards to the charmingly named mod.spaceing-piss, the composer writes, "This was supposed to be to Space Crusade what the Hero Quest Ingame music was.. Small on memory, yet went on for hours... I'm listening to it now for the first time in 10 years, and I cant say that I would do it like that these days... I think we took for granted the control we had over the chip then, and I think that I should have spent more time focusing on expression rather than melody which I seemed slave to in so many of these old tunes.."
