Not from Amiga game but: [ Show youtube player ] I remember it from my childhood, it's similar to music from Fright Night.

It sounds mysteriously like Dave Whitaker at it again

You know I completely missed the word music in the thread title and so completely missed the point of this thread with the above post.

The 'It Came from the Desert' music creeped me out like crazy. The entire game was really damn scary for me, much thanks to that atmospheric soundtrack.

I'm remembering a high heart rate in that game - possibly cause in tense battle you werent sure if you were getting attacked from behind and couldn't see to the sides either:P

But as for spooky sound, I remember loving the eerie sounds of Ghosts and goblins so much I got a tape recorder and recorded the sound track. Meanwhile I was glaring at my sister and 2 cousins - all young girls that were fully aware how imperative it was (to me at least) that this recording be flawless for prosperities sake. The little tarts screamed just at the end of my recording so they would be immortalised.

now what did I do with that tape?

I have to agree with Laffer here; this game had an amazing atmospheric soundtrack which was in keeping with the gameplay. Great. It's one of my favourite games of all time so this had to get my vote.

more a sound effect, but the skull laugh when you died in Uninvited was pretty disturbing...

Of course.

Oh, and It Came from the Desert was the only thing I could think of, so it gets my vote also. But tbh, the only thing that scared me was having to go to hospital. Such a PITA to escape...

Dreamweb had an eerie atmosphere to it.
Shadow of the Beast II startup sequence gave me shivers up me back.

None. REALLY none.

Only music that can (still!) scare the piss out of me is, for instance, the music in "Forbidden Forest" (C64)!

But on the Amiga? Sorry, can't remember any....or wait...
A tiny bit creepy was the title music from Future Wars I think...but just a tiny bit, really.

And if it comes to "eerie," it's the Twinworld music of the LATER levels (not level 1, obviously)

If it's not about MUSIC, but SFX, then we have a winner:
the 100% authentic clanking of the guillotines in Prince of Persia
And of course, that "zzzzzup" sound when he got chopped to bits by one of them...

I had always managed to scare the flying craps out of my younger sister that way; of course pretending that it was just a mistake (har har).

Shadow of the beast I. Because it had not only very cool and creepy sound(s) but also lots of them.

I have to agree with It Came From The Desert: it's such a perfect soundtrack...

can't forget the feeling I had from visiting a deserted quarry in the late evening...it gave me the creeps.
Every move seems hazardous ("am I in the wrong place at the wrong time?") and the game has music to match.


Another (bland imho)game made good by its soundtrack is Wrath of the demon

SOTB II - inside the crystal caverns and further into the goblin hideout. the tracks fit to action perfectly, and the action may cause heart attack

Hi, I'm not to high-jack your thread, but I was already an adult when the Amiga was first commercially released. Yeah, Im a geezer.

For the thread, I have to agree totally on 'It came from the desert' I'd almost give my right to play a revamped version.

Drakkhen had a great opening tune and the in-game SFX made me shiver in the dark.

Spent my halloween hangover today by watching the longplays of Elvira and It Came From The Desert. Pure gold.

I also vote for it came from the desert. I remember watching the opening scene on my 1Mbyte machine and it blew me away. Even today, wait until it is late, play it and turn up the volume. Perfect Soundtrack but back then tough to beat. Never finished it until a couple of years ago.
