Great gaming moments in history......


....Good loading themes

The Commodore was not good at loading things in. The cassette drive was..well...crap and the disk drive was a donkey. Even so, those boffins started to code some tunes to listen to to take the pain away. Ocean's Ocean loader was indeed a classic and Thalamus's games always had some various tunes on the load, sometime with a mix-e-load to play with. Standout titles were Martin Galway's Green Beret and Rob Hubbard's Sanxion. Even better was the Novaload screech  that came with lots of US Gold releases :)(yes I joke)
