Oh, this definitely is some of the better 8-bit stuff I've heard. Very pleasantly suprised! :)
The intro gave away that it'd be at least decent. I really like the ominous / mix of tranquility+sadness in the intro, it provides an excellent atmosphere. I have to say I was a little bit surprised at how 'happy' and 'upvibe' you actually made the drop, because of that. You use a lot of those high pitched perc hits, such as the one that almost sounds like mario forcing himself down a green pipe. I dunno.. it feels like it could've held on to the vibe it had earlier if you downpitched them a bit, or lowpassed them even.
Then afterwards, you bring the pads back in and it sounds like that again for a while, but only shortly. I was a little disappointed at how cross-over you went with the components of this track, to tell you the truth, but considering it all was mixed in rather nicely and the melodics themselves are produced properly, I suppose that doesn't really matter. It's just that I personally would've liked to hear you take it in another direction.
But really, this is your own music ofc and it's definitely produced alright, so good job! ;)
Thank you for the review.
It originally was going to be a dark and sad halloween kinda theme but then then I had too much fun with arpeggios and everything else :(
Next time ill decide a theme and stick to it.
Oh yeah! Really diggin' this chiptune piece you've put together! From the cloudy, mysterious intro to the strong building finish, you've created quite a wondrous track. Plenty variation throughout the song to keep it fresh, with a memorable riff that would fit greatly in an old-school retro video game. A fine 5 star song in my eyes. Well done jbotsd!
Thank You :D
The idea originally was to create a halloween kinda themed piece but then it just kept going until it ended up how you now hear it :D
Sounds straight from the NES. Feelings of nostalgia all around. Produced and performed well. The beat grates on my nerves after a bit to be honest, but nice job.
hehehe thanks :)
If you want a track that really gets on your nerves :P http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/510175

Very good chiptune, great base and bleep/clickyness. Love it!
Thank You :D
