Full title: Space Harrier- Main Theme Piano Redux

A while back, I managed to sequence a piano/electronic cover of the main theme from the 1985 Sega arcade classic video game, Space Harrier. After listening to a version of the Space Harrier main theme being played from the Japan-only Version 2.1 BIOS screen from the Sega Master System, I was inspired to tinker with my old MIDI sequence. This is the result.

Composer: Philip "Dr. Mack Foxx" Byard

DrMackFoxx responds:

Been a long time since I've gotten any feedback here. Thank you very much! ^_^ Glad you enjoyed this track!

The snares are fairly quiet. I saw that other review where your reply stated why. I like the piano in this, and the song's upbeatness. The instruments feel exciting. 4.5 to you, from a guy who needs work in reviews. I listen to lots of music regardless of popularity, repetitivity, or vulgarity, so what would usually decrease a score can't really affect mine.

DrMackFoxx responds:

Sometimes it's quite tricky to find the right balance for your instruments. I consider myself more of an "Experienced Novice" with much to learn. Great to see you really enjoyed this track. :)

Thank you very much for the thorough and honest review! I greatly appreciate it. ^_^

Sonic been my Hero ever since his 1st show or Game ;w; you did an amazing job on this You have my Respect :D Keep up the Good Work o3o Maybe we can be Friends :D

DrMackFoxx responds:

Thanks a lot for the excellent review score! Glad you really enjoyed this track. ^_^

Sounds great! The only critique I could give is that the drums sort of quiet, though that may be intentional.

DrMackFoxx responds:

Ah! The drums are a bit on the quiet side, but that's just because I didn't want them to overpower the rest of the track, especially as the drum kit I used does have a pretty strong-sounding snare drum hit. Nonetheless, thank you very much for the great review and I'm glad you enjoyed this tune! :)

Made me get soothing goosebumps and overall, really smooth production. The chords give it a really nice nostalgic touch. ᴵ ᶠᵉᵉᶫ ᵘᶰᵈᵉʳᵗᵒᶰᵉˢ ᵒᶠ ᶜᵒᵘʳᵃᵍᵉ ᵀʰᵉ ᶜᵒʷᵃʳᵈᶫʸ ᴰᵒᵍ ᶠᵒʳ ˢᵒᵐᵉ ʳᵉᵃˢᵒᶰ⋅

DrMackFoxx responds:

As this is one of the few tracks I have on Newgrounds which I made almost entirely on my own, I'm very happy to see that this remake worked out very well. :)

Glad you thoroughly enjoyed this song and thank you very much for the awesome review! ^_^
