Here is a piano arrangement of the stage BGM Hill Top Zone from the 1992 Sega Genesis video game, Sonic 2.

This is a collaboration between me and John Weeks.

MIDI Sequenced by John Weeks. Piano arrangement by Dr. Mack Foxx.

MIDI modified and used with permission. Please note: I do have written permission to post this from John Weeks.

I have to agree that this cover is among my least successful. Glad that you still liked it, though. :) Thank you very much for the review! I really appreciate it.

Could be better.

I honestly don't like it done with a piano. It's been done so much with one that it just gets annoying after a while. Nobody ever has a different take, they just keep trying to make it JUST LIKE THE GAME. -_-

I saw one guy attempt to make a metalized version using FL Studio (I could tell because of the sound of the guitars), and the only thing missing with his was some proper drums, although the bass guitar did pretty well there. I based mine on a midi and his cover, and I'm proud of my work because it turned out the way I wanted it to.

Perhaps if you take a country or bluegrass spin on this song, it might sound better. It's also plausible a techno-type remix would do the song good. Or maybe you could try your own metalized cover. Bottom line is that this style, for me, was old hat a while ago.

On a side note, it sounded kinda grainy like one of those really old records from, say, the Old West times. I'm guessing this is because you had some of the instruments switch notes really quickly while leaving a small delay in between the notes.

DrMackFoxx responds:

Well, this is a cover, not a remix. My and John Weeks' intent is to give these tracks a new feel with different instrumentation and some other minor edits instead of, more or less, rebuilding a classic almost entirely from scratch. The review is appreciated, nonetheless. Thanks. :)

If you looking for a better remake of this track, I would recommend "Sonic 2 - Hillstop" By Hating4AM http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/liste n/379754

Nice ;D

It made me happy, thanks alot ^^ I'm giving it a 10 not to be a combo breaker.
Well done.

I'm quite glad you enjoyed this song and thank you very much for the excellent review!

Should you check out my other tracks, I hope you like them as well. There certainly is going to be a lot more music where this came from. :)

Lumberjack Sonic

That is all I could ever think when I here this song, Sonic chopping down trees with an ax to build a log cabin.

I think that would make me weird, but i don't think I'm the only person to ever think it. Great job.

Ah! That's quite imaginative, if you ask me. Once again, thank you very much for the excellent review and it's always great to hear how much you've enjoyed these songs. :) More are on the way!
