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!



Hey, this is surprisingly great!

I never know that an 8-bit could be this exciting. :D This sounds really great with such a beat. I find it an enjoyable one. You could do the ending a little better, but over all, I'm giving you 9. :D

WritersBlock responds:

Cool, thanks man. Yeah, a better ending might have been keeping that main melody but dropping everything else out. I might try that, and if it's good, update it.
Cheers for the review.


But I'm afraid there is no uppity part of Chapter 2 that this song will fit with, I can put it in the credits Or I can use it as the Extras Menu music(Yes chapter 2 will have an Extras menu, probably some Sonic related info and a sprite comic).

I will be using this in Chapter 2, either way, which do you perfer, Extras, or Credits?

I'm leaning towards Extras.

WritersBlock responds:

Yeah, extras. Credits need to kind of follow the mood too. I might try something similar to the credits in part one. A bit of orchestral sounds, a bit of synth stuff.
I might also do an 8-bit robotnik theme, or something like that, maybe a short loop.


I'm not much of an audio reviewer but I'll do my best...

The song was very nice. It has a Christmas feel to it. A bit repetitive but I loved the beat that solos at 1:30.

The song is quite catchy and it has a "happy" feel to it. Anyways, nice job and like I said, I'm not much of an audio reviewer so sorry if you didn't find this helpful. Added to favs =P

WritersBlock responds:

Hey, thanks for the review.
What you wrote was good. A bit of critique, a bit of complement. About the repetitiveness of it: That was my primary concern, I added a few extra parts at the end to try and conceal it, and I probably could have done it better, but I'm still happy with it. 9/10 and another fav is enough to please me.

christmas feel

i got the christmas vibe, however I generally dont like most of the christmas songs cause they all sound the same (i like christmas tho!)

There was another good melody to the song, sounded like I was playing on my old Game-Boy again, altho i realize that this was kind of the aim. Still it gets kind of old towards the end when the base melody doesnt change at all.

Still good to listen to, thanks for working hard, and being brave to let others like myself with n o musical talent to encourage or criticize ^^


WritersBlock responds:

Hey, thanks for your review, you're one great critic. It's great to see you, openly admitting a lack of musical talent, giving much more detailed reviews than most others. You have musical talent. You can listen to music, and relate to it accurately from there, so you have more musical talent than you realise =P

I'm glad you enjoy it, and I love your reviews, they keep me striving to do better.
Thank you so much.


great piece

I don't really get the "christmas-feeling" but I like your work very much.
Great sound, nice effects..

will download it.. 10/10, 5/5 *adds to fav*

WritersBlock responds:

Cool, thanks man.
Yeah, the christmas feeling got pushed into the back a bit as I pulled more stuff into it to keep it mixed up.
