Alright, this was my first request to be received for a video game song, and it was quite an interesting choice. Given I never owned a Genesis nor have I played Ristar, this was a bit of a challenge yet also really fun to do. I was surprised by the effectiveness of some of Cubase's instruments here, and how well it could match a Genesis game's soundtrack. Anyway, enjoy this one on me

Very good. If they made a Re-Mastered version of Ristar like they did with the Ducktales game, it would probably sound just like this. Keep up the good work.

yay happy song

ill give u an 8 because you dont really hear that much happy songs on newgrounds

the quality of the instruments needs some work

try going through each instrument and apply some filtering, compression, effects hear and

there, to make each instrument sound unique and nice

I like the melody, very interesting, and the song as an entirety, doesnt seem repeditive

Keep up the good work :D

If you have any time, can you check this out (Take out gaps in link)

Ristar wow

Not often you see something for Ristar pop up, but although it's clear, personally I would have not used some of these sounds, and just left it as a loop because that is what it is, a loop for a level, if you had put in some variation it would have made this loop into a song then it would have been much better.
But I'm guessing you were trying to keep it very mega drive/genesis, which strikes as being odd if you had never played Ristar or even owned the console, as it says in the description.
Anyway, it's a good attempt but I think you should rework some of the instruments and cut it down to a loop because it repeats anyway, so you may aswell just have it loop once, unless you make something happen on the 2nd or 3rd time it repeats.

Thanks for the notes. As a matter of fact, I've been told by people to actually lengthen songs that loop, so this kinda went with the idea of what they were asking for
