Best Sound effects

Postby Vic20-Ian » Tue Apr 11, 2017 1:05 am

A bit of fun - what is your favourite Vic20 sound effect?

I really enjoy the LaserZone title sounds as well as the game sounds.

Also of note is the multiple sound effects present at the same time on Myriad - try shooting and leaving one alien from the invaders and starting the next wave.

What are your recommendations for notable Vic20 sounds?

These could be evocative of the character or gameplay or notable for technical accomplishment.

Have fun.

I can only agree. Lazer Zone sounds fantastic. Matrix also has amazing sounds - Jeff Minter was a Vic 20 SFX genius! I was disappointed with the sounds of a lot of early C64 games as I had been spoilt by Minters Vic 20 games. Most of the early C64 games sounded feeble and twee in comparison.

Right, how could I forget Star Battle and Jelly Monsters :D Those Japanese guys managed to squeeze astonishingly arcade-like sounds from the Vic!

Very true and a shame, but the other sounds more or less make up for it. I especially enjoy the sounds of eating ghosts and fruits. Immensly satisfying! Also, the sound of the ghosts returning to the base. Better than the original IMO.
