Pack was made using
NEZplug 0.9.4.8+2+19.20 VGM mod
and .HES file from http://hes.joshw.info/.

Track titles are from the "irem RETRO GAME
MUSIC COLLECTION 2" (KDSD-00449) OST, where
applicable.

This is a port of the arcade game of the same
name, done by Irem themselves and released ~two
years after. While the arcade version was
localized and distributed outside of Japan (as
"Battle Chopper"), there was no TurboGrafx-16
release of the port.

To no surprise, the port sounds significantly
different from the arcade version.
Of note is the "four voices only" decision from
the arcade being present for the in-game BGMs
(track 03~06, 08~12); while this reserves both
of the HuC6280's white noise generators for
SFX, it has precluded the use of said noise to
more closely re-create the percussion sounds in
these BGMs' original incarnations.

Nonetheless, all but one song from the arcade
version is present, and some songs feature
slightly different arrangements, potentially
making for an interesting listen for those who
are familiar with the originals.
