Note: This is in no way connected to Snowboard kids. The target of this song was to capture the upbeat winter/Christmas feel that was provided by the soundtrack of that game.
Also note: This song is based off of one of my previous submissions: Winter Division. Although it is based from it, there are many significant differences. The tune is altered slightly, new sections have been added and the general organisation of the song is much better. Oh, and it's a chiptune too. =P

Now, I know it's not terribly Christmassy, and it's not a cover of a Christmas song, but I think the upbeat melody and jingle from the accompaniment can compensate for that and bring enough Christmas cheer for the competition.

I spent quite a lot of time on this song, getting it right, so I hope that it pays off and I hope you all get that warm fuzzy feeling inside when you listen to it.
I can't encourage you enough to vote and review on this song, as it really makes my day to see what you thought of it and to see if my work pays off. I really appreciate everything you write down for me, encouragement, criticism, enthusiasm.
So I aim this at all the people who've listened to and/or enjoyed my music. Thank you.
Sorry for the monologue, now play the damn song! And enjoy it, please.

Christmas cheers!

WritersBlock.

(title in work)

I like the music. It's got a quick and happy pace to it, which I think is pretty fun to listen to now an again. The only thing I didn't really like was the quality of the audio. It sounded compressed quite a bit and sounded really grainy to me. Made it kind of annoying to listen to this.


WritersBlock responds:

Thanks for reviewing. I did this in 8-bit style, which is probably why you find it annoying. I'm thinking of remaking it, with less of the 8 bit sound.

Cheers

Nice!

Overall it's a great and happy theme. Very fast and energetic as well. Love the theme. Never played this game myself, if it is a game, but it sounds funky. Good beat, good effects, good everything. Keep it up!

WritersBlock responds:

Thanks for the review. It's not directly from a game, it's just inspired by Snowboard Kids. Sorry to confuse you there =P

whey :D

heres me reviewing! XD well this beats every other song in orginality for sure. i really like it, its true to style in every way aswell! only thing to point out that might break the style was that there was too much bass in the kicks. other than that i seriously can find anything wrong with this. i loved the melody and can totally see this beeing used in a snowboard/ski/xmas quest game for an old console. the beginning reminded me of flicker X)

one last thing tho, i dont see why you called the song that, since, it might confuse so many, even tho it says in despcription, it fooled me the first 15 sec or so. ah well its no biggie... well, nothing left to say but; this deserves 1 place. in my opinion this is the best one in the MAC so far. keep at it :D 5/5 9/10


WritersBlock responds:

Hey, whoa, thanks man!
I got a PM from darkside about weather my drums were 8-bit enough, haven't heard from him yet, though.
Ahh, the name of the song, well, snowboard kids was the inspiration for the tune, I probably could've changed back to the original title "winter division" (that seems the logical choice), but, yeah, it's not the most important part of the song.

1st place? Wow, that means a lot coming from you, but your song is seriously in contention, the best cover, at least. I think we'll see some good entries coming in the last few days of the comp.

Cheers for the review.

Well done

-Good-
Very good audio here. I liked how the song was upbeat and fast strait from the begining. I also liked how there were several 8-bit beats going on at a time. I thought the audio changed beats very well. I also think it could loop pretty well.

-Bad-
Not much

-Overall-
Very well done audio.

Oh, you flatter me *blushes*. Thanks for the review, the mixture of the harmonies was one thing I was content with in this piece. Not many people picked up on that, so it's good to know it comes across fairly subtle. Good job picking that out in your review =p
Cheers.

Very Upbeat

It sounds pretty fast and energetic even at the start, not sure if that's a good thing or not but it does sound good, kind of like an old game for a gameboy or something, kind of like a town background beat or something. It does seem to sound a little repetative after a while, maybe some veriation would be cool to add in this but eh.

The ending seems like it would be sudden but it does end in kind of a quieting down way, which is good but maybe have it open like that too. Just my opinion but still, pretty good overall :)

5/5

WritersBlock responds:

Thanks for the review. Yeah, repetitiveness is the major issue. I'm glad you like the ending.
Cheers.
