So are you, friend.
what a melody, it shouldnt work....but it does...it so does! got me bopping around on my chair, what a tune!
I cannot give a lesser vote to a track that has just brought me back to my childhood, where I dumped all my friends just to play on my good guy gameboy.
Everything sounds absolutely legit, there's nothing too modern and that's how it should be.
I'm pointing that out, because many lads here on newgrounds sometimes fail to make a pure 8-bit track. That is why this one should stand out and teach them a lesson. ;)
No technical issues found and the melody is spacious, moody and overally it sounds like as if it was made in the past rather than in the future.
You did a very good job in making it real and classic at the same time so there is a big five for you.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
