This is from one of those single screen platformers from the mid 80s! Was going to guess Karl's Kavern but I couldn't see it on the attract screen. Nor does it seem to be Blagger. Hmmmm :-k

Let's try another musical one.

In no way is this a blatant attempt to try and get more interest in a project of mine that seems to have fallen flat on its face. :^o

Grab the SSD from this post, mount the disc then enter (or copy+paste) the following command:

*PLAY O1 t-5 I R3: Cp8 Ep8 Gp8 Ep8 : H Cp8

Which game is this little tune from? Should be an easy starter for 10.

Are you using the latest version? (8th chords were added in version 1.02).

It worked for me! And it was so familiar yet so elusive. And then when I was least expecting it, the answer popped into my head:

<spoiler>
Acornsoft Monsters
</spoiler>

That PLAY command line is pretty versatile! Great to be able to write a little tune like that in such a small number of characters.

Yes, it's Monsters.

Considering you both posted within a minute of each other we'll call it a draw!

Now for something a little more obscure:

ENVELOPE 1,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,127,-4,-71,-3,127,0
*PLAY =! N1 =,2 O3 I ^#F,^D, ;75 ^D,A, ^D,B, ^D,A, ;100 B,G, A,#F, ^D,A
