Life is a sandbox


Author Comments

An 8-bit meets pop punk/rock track, Inspired by the games and community of newgrounds and for use in a buddys video game.

A great deal of fun to make, one thing i keep in mind when making these tracks is to try to capture the spirit of the old games, with its fun, colourful sprites and fast paced gameplay and the way it felt to play them. Ideal for a platformer stage music.

Oh man, I love this kind of music! Definitely resembles Anamanaguchi's music, which I love. Keep up the great work!

Thank you kindly :)

Enjoyed this very much. Nice balance of creativity and mainstream-ness. Very pleasing all the way through. Very catchy, nice melodies and harmonies. Certainly a foot-tapper for me. Needs a video game to go with it! :))

Chiptune... my only weakness! Or maybe it's playing the contest on hard mode because I listen to chiptune so much and therefore i overly critique it. Anyway, it's got great energy to it, it's very feelgood, but the melody could be a little stronger considering you're using THOSE 4 chords, I think. The mix is pretty close to amazing, but the lead is a bit quiet. Score: 8

Mini-scores (See http://johnfn.newgrounds.com/news/post/936953 for what this means and how to improve)
* Composition: 3/4
* Arrangement: 3/4

It's like modern games meet nintendo with the guitars. Very Creative! =D
