Great song

I LOVE listening to 8-bit tracks. It is its own genre for a reason :P

Good beats, always upbeat and keeps the speed at a good pace.

Time.

Well, I'll start off with the very first...instrument? Sound? I'll go look up what to call the emulated instruments later using the magic of wikipedia. Anyway, right at the beginning that emulated instrument starts off and plays faithfully on every single beat, occasionally changing pitch to play on another note for a while. It's fine up until about .22 where other instruments start to come in and they play off sync with eachother, it sounds almost like each instrument is in its own time signature. Maybe I'm crazy and overanalytical. At .44 however, right before I decide I could better waste my time elsewhere, the song made a change I found enjoyable, so I stayed. It's basically the same thing with different instruments though with the bass kick thing it gives enough of an illusion of the song being in time with itself that it sounds nice. Listening to it again I'd say that the reason it sounds better is because although you still had an instrument manning the post of playing continuously on every beat, except that now it's the one that's off time because the bass kick has joined forces with the...I don't know what the fuck it's called, it's playing what my drummer friend calls "ghost notes". I can't remember an actual term for it, non continuous eighth notes or something like that, two eighth notes then an eighth rest or something similar. The only thing that's playing faster, I hope you get what I'm saying.
It changes again at 1.28, the song drops to something simple and enjoyable, and at 1.50 it does a off beat thing which is also pretty cool in its simplicity.
Some basic changes I would make, at .15, have that strange sound fade out as the other instrment fades in, it might be a little better if it was background noise, or replaced with something else for the buildup, because as it is, it's taking away from the song. I notice the part again with a different instrument at around .50, so if it was there before it was blending, if it comes in again then maybe it shouldn't and if there's a part lacking in the piece it might be better to write a new one to add in.
After 1.28 it's fine, I wouldn't play with it much at all, the timing doesn't clash and the general sound of it is fine. I hope my review is appreciated. Have a pleasant day.

I wasn't sure about this song..

at first. But once it picked up speed I had to download it. Great job, man. my only suggestion is at ~1:55-fin you introduced a new sound that is a little harsh. If you could soften that sound a bit, it would be awesome. other than that, I dont think there is too much to improve upon.
