Super Mario Castle: The Return

Author Comments

This is an orchestrated version of the Castle theme from Super Mario World. I am orchestrating many famous Nintendo songs for my "Soon to Be released" Fall Of Nintendo Series. (Remake). I matched this music with the Script of the scene. Similar to Howard Shore, but instead using a song that has already been made. I hope you enjoy this, It is very entertaining. ~Dylan Lloyd~"Sprittles~. Original Composer: Koji Kondo.

Ha, Thanks ;)

Very nice!

I really like this song. You've done an amazing job. There are just two little thinks I recognized:
- 2:30 - 2:38: The strings seem to be ab bit out of rhythm. In combination with the drums they appear to be a bit late. The situation just becomes clear when the drums are fading out. However, this is just my subjective perception.
- At some times the vibrato of some instruments is just a bit to much, I think.

But my twisted perception doesn't change the fact that this is a decent piece of music!

Veneox responds:

Thanks for the feeback, very nice. ;)


The Good:
Its flipping awesome!
The Bad:
There are two (or you could consider it one) things that bother me in this song:
3:45 - the fade in at this point doesn't sound quite right, overlapping kind of oddly.
3:45 - 4:05 Kind of sounds like there are two layers that don't quite match up right, ones offset a bit heavier then the other or some, bothers me a little (although it's not as noticeable with the bass turned up (although I think the song sounds better on a lower bass level)).

If you update the song let me know, thanks!

Thank you, ;) I' may update the quality on various settings one day.

Very nice classicla remake

I remember how hard playing out some of the castle levels on Super Mario world was and some of them annoyed me to no end because it took so many tries to even get through the castle without dying at all.

Violin: Sounds very nice and really like the sound it provides.

Trombone: The way it just emphasizes on bringing in the dark feel is great.

Trumpet: Not really as loud but this is perhaps one of the other nice instruments used in the song.

Drums: Not completely classic but it sounds like you used a drum set which is actually a break from sticking completely to classic drums instead as in most classic pieces.

Overall: Very nice piece of work and excellent remake you did, nice work here.


Veneox responds:

Thanks, Love the input on the instruments. ;)
