In this episode of Tubby Talk, Terry, Steve, and Chris take a deep dive into their favorite gaming music and the real-world bands it came to inspire. There's a little bit of group therapy during a discussion on emotional end credit themes, followed by an exploration of the chiptune and video game cover scene. The episode is capped off with a little game of "guess that tune I'm humming poorly".

Bands discussed include: Tanguy Ukulele Orchestra, Smooth McGroove, The Megas, The Minibosses, Arm Cannon, Mega Ran, XOC, and Kirby's Dream Band.

Rainbow Islands

Taito's 1987 title Rainbow Islands is the second arcade game in the popular Bubble Bobble series. It stars Bubby and Bobby, the dragon protagonists of the first game, in their human forms. Players create rainbows which function as both an attack and a platform creation tool, climbing to the top of a series of vertical stages.
