    Of all of Peachy’s great, chipped TV themes, this one reminds me most of a sorely lacking NES game.
    I pounced on Intellivision’s Night Stalker at the time, only to be somewhat disappointed (but still greatly entertained) by the gunman vs robots scenario.

    Though it could’ve been taken from an episode (Mr R.I.N.G.?), Kolchak didn’t use a gun, as it was more about supernatural discoveries than conquering the unknown.

    Ah well. Great sounds, Peachy!
