Wow 8-bit Music. Good Catchy. Iv<

BenTibbetts responds:

Hey thanks, glad you liked it!

You clearly have a good hold on the concept of melodic progression, and that's what makes the sound of this piece so good.

As a fellow 8-bit composer, the piece is not "too sharp", as others have said; that's the way that raw 8-bit synths sound, like it or not. I do agree, however, that it sounds different from the rest of the track because of the lack of bass at the beginning. I would consider adding in a lower bass synth (like a triangle) to round it out and make it match the rest of the track.

Overall, still a nice, thematic track. Good job!

BenTibbetts responds:

Awesome feedback! Thanks very much!

Sorry but I think it's too sharp.
It can be only to my but I hate the beginning, the second half is very good. Congrat.
So what I say it that you should make it a bit softer.

BenTibbetts responds:

OK, thanks for the comment.

Congratz! You completed the game! Here's your reward! A very good song and some credits!
5/5 Stars!

BenTibbetts responds:

Thank you for listening.

That percussion in the first part is a little too relentless and distracting, and I don't think any actual 8-bit game tunes have any of that drum/maraca/shaker egg/whatever it is.

BenTibbetts responds:

OK, thank you for listening.
