EDIT: 9 votes, and I voted a couple of times myself, and it has 7 downloads. But still the score 3.5 and only one review! Please stop 0-voting or 1 and 2 when it's worth your download! And if you don't like it at least REVIEW to tell me what could've been better. Thanks!

As I fled above the clouds in a plane, I saw how there was nothing above the clouds. Nothing but air and space. Not even weather. The clouds shaped the most fancy and beautiful landscape with plains, hills, cliffs and everything. They're the edge of our world. I want to build a house above the clouds. I need helium. Lots of helium. I'll be closer to outer space than anyone.

This is a 8-bit song I made in MilkyTracker. I'm still pretty new to it and I'm open for any critism :)

I doubt it'll fit in a video game but where else do you put 8-bit songs?

Thanks for listening :)


I love 8 bit tunes

I like the into a lot, the bass line sounds pretty good here and I also like how you add more and more instruments during the intro.

The song itself is very enjoyable to listen to, the melodies are nice and the background music is appealing as well. Maybe you've overdone the "vibrato" of the main melody a bit, as it starts to get a bit annoying towards the end.
I also think you should try to make the background music a bit louder, so we can hear the good bass line a bit more clearly.

The ending is really abrupt, as if you suddendly lost interest in this song. Try to find a better outro, maybe do it similar to the intro, just the other way round: Take away the instruments one after another and then end on a single tone.
Or just do a quick fade out.

Thank you very much for the review and the tips!

A little too wide ranging

Don't take my vote of 3 as totally negative, I really don't think it deserves to be as high as it was, especially if you're voting to inflate your own scores up so high.

Right, onto the track itself - there are lots of different video games represented in this particular creation and, while I can see it getting some good mileage in this arena, you may have covered too many generic video games to really get ahead here - why not pick a tune and redux it Tetris style, or create Super Mario Brothers Vs. [popular artist of today], for example?

I think that your quirky style is worth something here and that you can develop it a little more than you already have, perhaps by making the track a full three - three and a half minutes long, as at half that length, it becomes a little tiresome and boorish, without too much in the way of form over the variation. Even with this variation, it can become repetitive, so keep working at it.

Hmm why are there lots of video games represented in this song? I haven't played any of the old video games and this I made up by playing the piano while chiptuning.
You're right it can be longer, with another part. Right now it does have ABA and variation but they are pretty similar. Thanks for the review.
Edit: Hmm and when you say a little too wide ranging, I can't see what you mean :/
If you see this reply, please give me more information in my inbox :) Thank you!
