Choicest VGM - VGM #9 - Silpheed - The Legend of Silpheed

And now the last of 1986 games, although I believe the version I played was the Sierra On-Line port which was released in 1988.

You can tell from the very first few seconds of the intro theme that Silpheed was a game made in Japan and that it wouldn't be out of place in one of its animes, like Macross or Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Sadly as I wasn't very good at the game as a kid I don't recall ever getting past the first level and this theme will forever be the only one that is memorable for me.
