Track Attack – Cool Spot

Cool Spot

Catchy tunes are not exclusive to the radio. Track Attack highlights game music that enhances splattering zombies, solving ancient riddles, and two-hour commutes.

Song: “Bonus Stage”
Composer: Tommy Tallarico
Game: Cool Spot (1993)

Cool Spot makes a killer entrance as he carves a wave on a 7up liter surfboard. You know, that anthropomorphic red dot with rad shades who substitutes as a hyphen for faux Sprite? He throws drippy blasts of carbon dioxide at crabs, too. Don’t remember this? Totally understandable. The various cartridges Cool Spot blessed are of the same breed as World Gone Sour, a game featuring Sour Patch Kids. Which is to say, mediocre games based on food products. But the soundtrack achieved greatness.
