Clue 2: At the time, its stand-out features included in-game music and sound effects. This was the first game with in-game music, the playing of which required constant CPU attention and was thought impossible. It was cleverly achieved by constantly alternating CPU time between the music and the game (which accounts for the music's stuttery rhythm). How things have changed..... ;)

Clue 3: In each of the twenty levels were several flashing objects, which the player had to collect before their oxygen supply ran out. Once the player had collected the objects in one level, they had to go to the now-flashing portal, which took them to the next level.

Yeah, I haven't played many Saturn games, so this could be very tricky for me.

Okay...I'm wrong, but Skies of Arcadia is still brilliant and apparantly coming to XBLA at some point :-D

I once sold a PS1 game for about £70...which was 3 times more than what I paid for it....one of the Star Ocean games I believe.
