The background repeats itself, but it really doesn’t matter because you’ll be focused on all the action on top of it. The music has a nostalgic feel to it, and it makes me feel like I’m playing a game from the early 90’s. I also found that Q pauses the game. And if you die after getting far into the game, don’t worry–a ‘Continue’ feature is included in the game, and comes in very handy in these types of situations! The fast-paced action will keep you hooked for hours. 68K is definitely going to be one of the best games you’ll ever play, especially if you’re into old-style shooters.
