Battle Squadron: The Destruction of the Barrax Empire! and it’s slightly less known older brother, Hybris, are arguably two of the best shooters on the Amiga. Right from the start, Cope Com knew how to make a challenging shooter that, in our opinion, is still fun to play today. And composers Paul van der Valk (Hybris) and Ron Klaren (Battle Squadron) deliver incredible music that is not to be missed!

Another great show, guys. I had never even heard of these games!
thanks! be sure to try em out too :)
Thanks NukeNinja! I totally agree with Bryan, not only do these games have amazing music but they need to be played!
Battle Squadron!!! Awesome awesome music. So awesome, I made a tape of it to use for aerobics class in high school. I figured if I had to be in aerobics class, at least I could listen to that. Sadly, the tape was never used in class.
ahh man, your aerobics class was missing out then. haha
haha well now if you need to do some workouts you can take this episode on your phone…double nostalgia :P
Really enjoyed the music on this! I had no idea some of the sounds on the Amiga were similar to the GameBoy. It gave me a lot of great ideas. This game looks fun too!
The Amiga never stops amazing me…it would make sense why the Game Boy is the same for me. I can never get enough!
