Dude, When I played disposabot I was getting so addicted to your music that I had to come to your page and give ya all five stars. keep up the good work! (oh, and if you could check mine I'd be most pleased :D )

I thought I'd return the favour of you reviewing all my shit by giving you my own (:

Of course, sadly, I'm not knowledgeable about chiptune at all, so I can't really help at all, but I think the guy below me nailed it on the head. Overall, it kicks ass, and I'd love to see a lot of your stuff in flash games on NG, but yeah, after a while, without some variation, things get a little stale. It doesn't grate on my ears as much as it doesn't spice things up as much as I think it can be spiced up.

Then again, I still don't know anything about chiptune, so all this criticism could be for naught, so take it with a grain of salt!

Ohai, brah. Thank ya dearly

Honestly, I'd agree with you there. One of the reasons for minimal variation mostly comes from the fact that it was a quick-make that I liked enough to put on Newgrounds lol; not really a huge amount of effort in this one. And you don't have to know anything about a genre to like it; you can always pose feedback on a song :D

Liked the gritty crushed kick however at 1:20 it increases in loudness and throws the mix off a bit.
The main body of the project is great, however it stays great for a couple of minutes before it starts to grate on the ears. It's missing some juicy bass, and I think some Neo Moogish Wendy Carlos type bass would fit in great at this point, to give the entire mix structure and flesh from the ground up. This is just my opinion though.
Overall, enjoyable to listen too. Good stuff mate!

CANDYdisturber responds:

Thanks for the review! Greatly appreciate it.

Bass is pretty hard to do in chiptune since the only real thing i can use is saw/square waves, and since I already had so many going at a time it would've ended up breaking most of the clarity in the leads; but that's definately something I can try and look into.
