Not bad. The choice of samples reminds me of a mix of Commodore 64 with early Amiga tunes. One thing I'd like to point out is the number of channels. Typically, most consoles or computers with 8-Bit sound chips back then had 4 channels, 6 tops. I don't know if that degree of authenticity was considered. I think it's important to make sure that you don't get lumped in with people who just MIDI rip songs with generic 8-bit sound fonts that are a dead give away by too many instruments playing at once. Just wanted to put that out there. I really, really liked this song.

Thanks for the input! In most of my chippy stuff I generally use 4 or 6 channels, but I was enjoying this one and decided not to limit myself as much with it. The samples are mostly just super basic waveforms, since I don't really have any kind of sound library. I'm really glad you liked the song though, it's always very encouraging to know that someone out there can enjoy what I've done!

A very nice 8-bit song.

I really love the intro. It has some great things that make it stand apart from the usual intro IMO.
I like how in the intro the notes echo a bit. It gives a retro feeling. It's also good that you stopped with the not-so-clear echo after a while, because if it would continue more I think it would get irritating.

Another thing I like are the four-beat transitions. It fits perfectly, and I think it's pretty original. I like good transitions, so I am happy with them.

The high and pitched sounds work well with this song. The difference between the lower and the higher sounds work well as a build up. And it also gives the song a bit of happiness.

Basically the only thing I don't like the beat that starts at 0:29. It's nice that you tried to give the song a bit more power, but I don't think the song needs it. It is a bit too dark for the rest of the song, which makes it grab more of my attention than I want it to have.
I also have mixed feelings about that it frequency changes often. I guess it fits with an 8-bit song, but I enjoy a bit more structure in a song.
These things probably come off nitpicky, so I want you to know that this song is still really nice. It deserves four stars, even though some parts are not entirely to my personal taste.

Awesome review, thanks! It's great to get some feedback on the transitions especially, since I'm trying to get better at those.

I really appreciate your input, criticism, and opinion. You RRC guys really have helped me get better.

This is super catchy and groovy!! Love it when the main theme comes in at :30. Amazing bass writing also! I wish I could write something as groovy as this haha =)

Whoa thanks! I did have a lot of fun writing the bass in this one, but I still had to rewrite it a few times to make it sound reasonably good.
