The tune seems like it would fit well in an old school RPG game such as Shining Force if modern day cities were involved.
The drums are good and heavy. The snares and bass kicks are deep. Were the kicks layered?
The synth makes me think of a mandolin and guitar mix. Then the second synth sounds a lot like a bass guitar riff to me.
The background gun shot sounds are cool.
Overall, can't really seem to think of a way to improve this song. Nicely done.

Yeah, the kicks were layered. I usually layer them and snares.
Thank you! :D
There's something about this that sets it apart from what I typically define as 8-bit music. It might be the bass, but whatever it is it feels like there's a certain depth to this track that 8-bit doesn't traditionally have. Maybe it's a range of tones, I really have no idea. Apart from the not-fully-traditional-8-bit aspect it sounds great though, smooth and ambient, varied; continuous.
I'd like the alternate melody (the one that plays around 3:20... and probably at earlier instances) to be a little more in the foreground, and a bit more melodic somehow. It's nice though, keep it going!
Yeah, I'm no 8-bit expert. I didn't try to make it completely 8-bit, I just wanted a song with 8-bit in it...if you know what I'm saying lol. And that alternate melody also plays around 0:50. Thanks for the review, I really appreciate it!
I quite like the melody and 8 bit styles. But the drum sounds are really lacking. Kinda made me feel a touch more deflated about it then I should. Bass is nice though.
Thanks for your review! Even though I like the drums on this song, I know what you are talking about. I recently got some new drum packs, so my drums will have a better sound in future songs :)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
