Micronics, perhaps also the later company Khaos, was a Japanese video game developing company which developed the NES versions of 1942, Athena, Ghosts 'n Goblins, Ikari Warriors, Ikari Warriors II: Victory Road, and Tiger Heli. Although uncredited in almost all their games, their work can often be identified by a distinct pause sound effect. The games also have long delays between changing screens, since the games transferred graphics to video memory at a much slower rate than usual. Most of their games also ran at very low frame rates, varying between 12 and 20 FPS, instead of the expected 60 FPS.
