A short 8bit song for you listening pleasure. Never made anything 8bit style so this was a bit of a test, but it was fun nonetheless.
Not too serious, but I think it's ok.

This is some nice work. However, I felt like you were afraid to stray from the main melody, and it didn't sound quite 8-bit...maybe more 16-bit. The samples were a bit too high quality. This is a good start, though. I'd love to see you build on this.

7 = "Nice work. Could be improved."
Rated 4. 4.28 / 5.00 (- 0.0022)

Looking foward to seeing more.


It's got a nice beet and sound. My only two concerns are these:

If you want it to be truly 8-bit, some of the drum samples are a little too high quality for it. But that's a minor detail.

Secondly, the drum beat sounds a bit too loud, but that's really just a personal preference on my part, so you can ignore this sentence if you want to.

Other than that, it's a catchy piece.

If Only

Nuberu Uematsu was a king of the 8-bit. But I don't think he could whip up a kicking beat like this. Just picture this to ANY Nintendo or Master System game, and yeah, they all got nothing. Congratulations on this accomplishment and thanks for sharing it.
