My favourite one of your songs so far. You are amazing.

AlienNinjaGD responds:

Thank you!!!

The synth riff at the beginning is catchy, although the synths themselves sound a bit harsh in the mix. The background percussion at the beginning also is a bit grating. The harmonic content of the piece is very repetitive, and the mix sounds a bit strained at 1:01. My biggest problem with the piece is how bland the composition is. The entire piece is essentially variations on the same short, simple riff, with little harmonic depth to boot. You have a good sense of rhythm and progression, but I want you to spend more time adding complexity to the composition of your tracks - richer chords, fuller textures, more layers of harmony (chords, melodies, back-up melodies, rhythmic riffs, dynamic bass lines, etc.). It helps to lay out the chords you’re using first, and then build patterns that fit within the notes of those chords. Still, this piece isn’t bad. The composition is just a little underwhelming. It’s still a catchy and flowing piece with some good harmonic ideas. Keep at it, AlienNinjaGD! :)

Thanks for the advices! I'm gonna follow them.

Nice!

I'm making a level in GD!

BTW my username in GD is TheMobKiller. Plz friend me

AlienNinjaGD responds:

Thanks bro!
I'm gonna fr you

When it came out, I didn't take the time to write a proper review, so I guess the time has come

Some parts are repetitive but the different sounds are cool.
You should try implementing effects / FXs to make it more interesting
Also, I feel like this could be used in some video games that are not GD (lots of potential here)

I think you should continue in this genre for now. I'm pretty sure you could make great stuff with the gameboy / videogame style c:

Oh and also, you're probably better than me now lmao
It sure took some time but finally followed you :D

AlienNinjaGD responds:

OMG! Thank you so much, man! Really glad you enjoyed! I'm gonna follow your advices.
Thanks again!!!
Wait, better than you?! Impossible :3

gggggggggggggggoooooooooooooooooooooooood :D

Thank you so much!
