Comic Bakery is a computer game for the MSX, made by Konami in 1984[1] and later ported to Commodore 64 by Imagine Software.

Summary[edit]

The music and sound effects for the C64 version were made by Martin Galway, a well-known musician of computer game music. As it was normal for the machine at the time, Galway composed an exclusive title song. The tune is one of the most well known chiptune melodies, and has been covered by Press Play On Tape and Instant Remedy among many others. The MSX version does not have unique music, using Yankee Doodle instead.

The game was set in a bakery, where the town baker tried to bake and deliver bread (Croissants in the MSX version) while fighting off raccoons. Pieces of bread would move along a factory line while the raccoons tried to eat the bread and switch off the machines. The player is required to keep the machinery running and also scare away the raccoons. If the player succeeds, the delivery truck would be loaded with bread and drive off, advancing the player to the next level. Each level maintained the same format as the last, with the difficulty increasing as the player progressed through the levels.
