THIS TRACK NOW ON OCREMIX.ORG! Check it out for their writeup etc. I have updated the version here on NG to be the same as the newer edition I submitted to OCRemix.

A prog-rock remake of level theme music from the NES game Contra Force!

Perhaps after all the 8-bit stuff I've done you can all understand my obsession with 8-bit music now. When I hear a great 8-bit tune, sure I hear the bleeps and bloops... but simultaneously in my mind, I hear stuff like this, the musical POTENTIAL. It's my DUTY to make it a reality!

This one is, in my opinion, LOADS better than my other Contra Force track. This one is longer, it hits hard AND soft, and yeah, I just love it. This is the music from the Boat level, where you fight everyone from a top view rather than a side view. This whole track is actually based on less than a minute of chiptune, it's a short piece of level music.

If the guitars sound obnoxious at times, I tried my best! :)
Let me know what you think! Go kill a hundred terrorists to this music!

So Nice

So nice to see that the spirit of that old NES is still alive, also Contra Force is such a great game. That is stage 2! Your remix was awesome, not very far away from the original song but still matches perfectly the style of the game. You deserve this 10/10!

Haha nice!

I remember Contra Force, but I just don't remember the actual theme song though.
Man this tune is just sweet, love the quality effort in this!
Man nice I like the company of the epic background strings!
I'm not such a big fan of rock lover, but this is a piece that I like.
Good stuff mate, keep it up!

My god, this is good

I already love 8-bits, but you've intensified it for me now. VERY rockin' with a major feel for the classics! Well done!

Excellent example of nice remake. Firstly slow then speed up - it will be looks nice on contra force remake if first part will be in pre-mission dialog, and second- fast part as in-mission track. Can you remake entire game's tracks?
