Nothing, I don't scare easily + I was an adult by the time the Amiga surfaced.

I just can't think of anything that gave me the creeps at all, maybe that cave world from Turrican I but I rather liked it, even though it was not really music

Elvira I music from catacombs or garden, I'm not sure. Title music from Shadow of the Beast 2, even today. Also music from intro of Air Support and from ending of Alien Breed.
[edit]ok, it was from catacombs, in the Zone

Yes the music on the Amiga version went well with an already lonely but great game

Blade Warrior was a little creepy i found and Beast2 did a good job also

Oh and already mentioned, Archipelagos - the music more than anything because the visuals were actually quite nice.Dave Whitaker seemed to have a knack for this type of music it seemed

The music in the 3D sections of Jurassic Park is quite scary. Especially in the dark!

I also found the music on the 'loading level' screen of Darkmere to be particularly creepy.

The monks chanting during the intro sequence in Ballistix always put me on edge, and then the blade-like sound when the title screen appeared made me wet myself.

When I was a kid, of course.

Music from Hired Guns. Not too creepy in itself, but it does get ones pulse pumping, adding to the 'creepy' atmosphere.

In The Great Giana Sisters, there was a riff which came in when the clock was nearing zero. That used to 'creep me out', but more because I had moments to reach the end or die.

Damn i can't remember the name of the game!! It was an RPG set in the future and the city and surroundings looked run-down... i remember there being alot of orange in the colour palette The music was kind of slow and creepy and you really felt you were alone!.... gonna have to try and find it now

I think you mean Perihelion
The music is a tad spooky indeed. There is also this long 'speech' sequence which is quite creepy

Is Perihelion considered a good game? i don't often read much about it on forums but it looks the part and i'd imagine it's quite a big game

Very well done music and great presentation from the start so i like to think there is a good game here too

I would say so and most of the reviewers agree with me it seems It's a bit different to the normal RPG you find on the Amiga, but I consider that a good thing actually. You should give it a try if you haven't already Adropac2

Oh that's good then because it certainly looks the part and the atmosphere is very much what i like

I'll try and play this at some stage but well you know how it is with still so much to play already - iv'e got Omikon already installed but need some quality time first

Ah, I remember Well, I hope you find some quality time soon

Back on topic : 'Die Kathedrale' had some pretty scary music. Mainly because it was so bad, but hey...
