As mentioned already below, great game music. There's a genre for that.

its actually techno/celtic, which doesnt exist on newgrounds

really remindes me of those really fun games i used to play (and still play with emulators)

awwww :3
reminds me of the banjo games! :D

MoonlitRaven responds:

i luv those games!!!! thanks man

This has the piraty mood you aimed for, well done. ;D

.. now for some hopefully constructive criticism:
Even though the song is only 1:40, you could have added some variation to the drums.
A snare or some other higher pitched percussion would be nice in addition to the kick.
The bass sounds like a bad emulation of a real bass. Either look out for some good soundfonts, a better plugin or aim for a more electronic approach. It also always helps to change the velocity of the notes a bit and slightly change their length and position. Just a little, with "snap to grid" turned off. This makes it sound more human as no one is capable of playing the same notes with exactly the same rhythm & velocity all the time.

Overall, this would fit perfectly into any game and movie with pirates in it. And every good game or movie should have pirates in it, right? ;D


MoonlitRaven responds:

i understand what ur saying!!!! :)
i was actually going for the hole cheesy bass (though iwas using a VST plugin) as i also lowered its bass in the EQ to compensate for the kick.
I do make a lot of piano and classical compositions so i know what u man about the hunization on the notes but this was a cheesy techno song so everythings gotta be in sync.
but i will admit the drums could of definately been varied more :D
thanks for the review!!!! :)
