The Bitmap Brothers co-operated with the British musician Tim Simenon to include the Bomb the Bass hip hop track "Megablast (Hip Hop On Precinct 13)" as theme music, which is also the origin of the game's subtitle. In turn, the theme of this song is based on the theme of John Carpenter's Assault on Precinct 13 movie and features also many samples from Sly and the Family Stone song, "You Can Make It if You Try".
Xenon 2 Megablast is widely regarded as one of the most difficult shoot'em-ups of the 1990s; in light of the effort required to complete the game, Peter Molyneux of Bullfrog Software is said to have been greatly disappointed by its outro: the shopkeeper, in his usual setting, congratulates you for finishing the game.
