I love how soft it is, and I think the foreground is at just the right level to provide a melody without starting to take over, which is totally what I'd want if I were using this in a game.

Acrylia responds:

Thank you! It was a little tricky trying to guesstimate ingame sounds over top of this to try and get all the other levels right >.<

Apparently the guy below me doesn't understand how video game music works. This is excellent background music, although it sounds more like a cavern to me than an icey pass. The drums seem really mellow and in the background, I would recommend giving them more punch and bringing them forward in the mix. You should modify the foreground instruments to have a stronger presence as well. You have a bit of harmonic support but its really really faint and would work really nicely if it was louder and given some volume dynamics.

Acrylia responds:

Well the original working title was Ice Cave but I thought Glacier Pass sounded better somewhat. Plus, this was a quick little project, so I wasn't all too concerned with technical stuff, just getting it out.

Although, the point of some parts being very soft was not necessarily to make it be heard. When actually playing a game there are a lot of parts of the music that you don't pay any attention to, but are there supporting the entire sound of the game. Everything being soft and the bass being kind of loud is to support in-game sounds, since most sound effects in flash games are in a higher frequency. Balance will come with sound effects that a game would have.

I appreciate your review!

1 star.
This is more-so like C418 than video game, and i couldn't see this in a game.
You get a star for trying...

Fantastic logic.
