    TRIVIA
    Thunder Cross was released in October 1988.

    The legendary music Horizon by Olof 'Blaizer' Gustafsson found in many Amiga Cracktros of early 90s was actually a cover of the first level music of Thunder Cross. Olof Gustaffson is the inhouse musician of Digital Illusion of Pinball Dreams fame and before going commercial he was an active scener in the Amiga demo group 'The Silents'.

    King Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Thunder Cross: Konami Kukeiha Club - 276A-7703) on May 21, 1989.
