This is one of the songs for the NG Game Jam 2. Made for the Mammoth team.


Good retro tune

This is a nice, simple 8-bit track. Brings several things to mind, I guess a snowfield could be one of them. Probably best used as a title screen or main menu, gets way too repetitive for in-game BGM. It's enjoyable for a few listens through.

I'm noticing where you have two of the lead instrument going at once, it gets really loud for a few notes. This, I think, is because you are playing the same note with them. I try to avoid this whenever possible, keeping my harmony and melody separate, yet supporting.

Good work, keep it up!

Thank you M3, next time I'll separate the notes.


Really well done, but for an 8-bit track, it's actually a bit simplistic.

I really like the melody in this, it loops just fine, it sounds like this cheerful track that would go well in a simple sidescrolle, as you said, in a winter wonderland of sorts. Your synths are really good, but as I said, there could've been more added to it. 8-bit doesn't necessary mean simple and a bit naked.

Either way, I hear potential, I think you should make some more 8-bit tracks or loops in this style!

Thanks for the review! As soon as I can get FL Studio on my laptop, I'll surely create more songs. Which includes 8bit.

Fun sound

This sounds like a really fun video game beat anyways. Kind of makes you think you are starting on a new level in the game and figuring out how things work while you play through the level trying not to get killed by simple enemies.

The synth sounds pretty cool here anyways. It plays a lot of cool sounding bits. The bass is easy on the ears and gives you a feeling of being able to beat the level without getting frustrated. Very nice little loop as well.

Overall, nice video game beat.

haha thanks! this is my personal favorite of anything I have made up to this point music-wise

Ah, 8-bit... Fun fun.

It's a short little loop, and there isn't a lot to it, so I won't be able to review it as good as I could a longer song, my apologies.

The 8-bit-ness of it works. I just can't help but think that there could be a bit more development in it. It has the same chording throughout, and is just really, really... boring. I know that it's more background music. But there could definitely be more.

What there is, though, is done well, and sounds nice. It's a good, short little loop. Just could be a /bit/ longer. lol.
