Episode 118: Power Pad Games

Power Pad games are the focus of Episode 118.  Originally manufactured by Bandai and called the Family Trainer (or Family Fun Fitness in North America), Nintendo purchased the rights to the NES accessory and rebranded it as the Power Pad.  There are eleven games total that came out for the Power Pad, and half of them were only released in Japan.  Almost all of them were developed by Human Entertainment.  Anyway, this is a very niche category for the Legacy Music Hour, and at one point, it even becomes more specific as a Meiro Daisakusen focus.  But neat music all around.  Full track listing below.

  1. Haven't listened to the episode just yet, but was trying to remember, which episode was it where you were talking about Joe Sample and other musicians like him? I really like Carmel and was hoping to branch out.

    Brent was mentioning something about a band that has been around for ages and he liked some of their early albums?

    Hi guys,

    Another really great episode. I particularly liked the Street Cop tracks.

    Just out of curiosity, have you guys thought about perhaps doing an episode focusing on music from pinball games (pinball games from the 8- and 16-bit systems, that is)? Also, what about a sewers/underground stages episode? A desert episode? A David Wise focus? A David Wise focus!

  3. Great episode! How about one focusing on the 3D glasses games on the Famicom and Sega Master System?
