Reminds me of the music from Turtles in Time, guess it's mostly because of the "hit" sound and upbeat tempo. Great melodies and enjoyable lead sounds makes it a song that's worth keeping on repeat for an hour or two :)
It's interesting and somewhat nostalgic
It does sounds like something from some games I used to play. A mix of adventure and battle to some extent. This can also be used for "build-ups to something". Though as you named it Blue Marine, now I am visualizing some naval traveling game, where you use a speedboat and it can jump.
Your my fav music maker on newgrounds...You are one of the reasons i got into music!
I'm glad you were able to recover this from your USB. It reminds me of that pumped up arcade music you might hear when playing an old shooter like Mega Man or Super R Type.
Very smooth beat.
There is nothing else I can really say. It was a great listen, the loop transition was flawless, and I couldn't get bored of it (well, maybe if I listened to it for an hour straight, maybe.)
For an unfinished song, it deserves much more praise than I can give alone.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
