This is my third creation that almost reflects what UnknownXL required for his game:
-It had to be a 30+ second loop
-It had to be coherent with a castle theme

I tried to reduce the length as much as possible (to lower the MBs)... I couldn't cripple this one any further ^__^. However, I think I hit the spot with the whole castle theme (unless it was supposed to be some evil castle or something =__=)

I think this song could be used in a scene where the main character is passing through a glorious empire's gates or even in the final credits . Do you think so as well? Please let me know if you agree or disagree ^__^.

27-07-2009> Hmm... I heard the song today and decided to change it from loop to song since it loops very badly, imo. I guess it fails that requirement.

WOOT! Thank you loads ^__^. I absolutely don't mind you using my stuff, so go ahead!

Hope to see your game soon.


It sounds calming but is pretty good for any nature style game

SFaPiL2 responds:

Thank you drdiablo ^__^. Hopefully one day I'll manage to make them loop well, too.


I LOVE THIS!!!! I can't complain at all! It explains the scene you described for MSC1 perfectly!

I don't have much to say on this one. Keep up this amazing work my friend! And thank you for participating!


SFaPiL2 responds:

Thank you sir... both for the awesome score AND for your awesome thread ^__^.


This is a huuuge improvement from your last couple of songs that I reviewed. I absolutely love this tune! I can envision exactly what the title says. I don't know if I necessarily see the main character walking through the gates, I see more of like the character coming from the underside of a hill, and as he walks over the peak, an enormous castle-scape appears on the horizon.

Anyways, This song has great technical merit, wonderful mastery, and touching harmonies. I can definitely see this being used in a medieval themed game. Great work once again my friend, I'll be reviewing your other two new songs as well later in the day, and all of your new songs to come, as I promised. You won't make a new song without a review from me!
Great job once again,
10/10 5/5

SFaPiL2 responds:

Ha Ha... Thanks alot! Technical merit? WOW!

I practically go by ear on every single song I make and create the structure as I go (which is bad), therefore I don't really have a clue of the outcome of what I'm creating until I either have nothing else to add or give up, lol.

I must admit that I'm pretty proud of this one... doesn't happen that often.

Wow, are you seriously thinking of reviewing my future songs? Thanks! You don't have to but, if you will, I'll be more careful with the quality of what I'll submit ^__^.

Cheers to you!


You should honestly be making music for big RPG games haha.

this song is so excellent.

im gonna give it a go and try to do this song and the boss battle myself.

although they probably wont get in any games. this has inspired me

BlueFuzion told me all my songs sound video game. so i most try myself. haha and this is perfect

SFaPiL2 responds:

Coming to think about it, some of your music does sound perfect for side-scrolling space shooters! Someone will eventually use your music.
