NOTE: This is an ORIGINAL song, NOT a remix of any 8-bit game.

This is A Hero Rises, an original 8-bit piece with the idea in mind of being the music for the cheesy intro and title screen of an awesome NES game. Once the main story part is done, you have the classic title screen riff play separately, thus the pause in between parts near the end of the track.

It's all part of a new musical project I've just started, found at myspace(dot)com(slash)dae datheus .

This song strictly follows the NES hardware rules - no more than 3 wave channels at once + a noise channel. This means there are NEVER MORE THAN 3 NOTES PLAYING AT ANY GIVEN TIME, just like a real 8-bit NES chiptune.

Quite simply, awesome. It's got a nice beat, very reminiscent of Megaman(Not to compare or anything).

I never knew that there was a strict rule that defines a song as an 8-bit NES chiptune, so I guess even the limitation adds to the nostalgic feel, and I really like it.

This is amazing, I hope you are planning to do a lot more music thats this great!

Also could I use this in a game that I'm planning to make if I give you credit for it?

Amazing Work!!

It´s really good and you re a great 8 bit musician... you must create more :D
I will give you 10 points and respect for this Amazing Tune

And... you gave me the permission to use also in my game? like FoxCartoons?
hope i will give you credit anyway, because is a great song...

NickPerrin responds:

Yup, feel free to use it as long as I'm credited in the game.
Thanks for the review and glad you enjoyed it!

Some of the best

Hey, I'm an upcoming game programmer and I was just wondering if I could use this for the Intro screen of my game.

NickPerrin responds:

Hey, thanks for the review & glad you enjoyed it.
Yes, you can use it in your game, just be sure to credit me somewhere in the game. Cheers!

Wonderfully pleasing

Thank you for uploading this great work. This song alone has placed you upon my radar as a composer for awesome retro tracks. Can't wait to see what else you got in store!
