Really cool stuff! There's a lot of stuff that could been fixed, with the drums to be exact. Feels so generic, (I don't know if it's just me, that I've heard that sample 10000 times now), also, the main melody is awesome but I feel that it could be a bit more developed to a more "nostalgic" way, as the track stablished. You got it perfect on 00:46 and on 2:26, that arpeggio melody is really awesome, but I feel it looses it's coolness as the melody progresses. Not meaning it's not cool, but, again, I could have been more developed to hit us hard on melancholy/nostalgia. The song itself also abruptly end, I'm guessing you wanted to end this and publish it asap, which ok it's fair. This song could've been more epic than it already is if you had spent more time on it. Either way, good job.
though my only experience with old Newgrounds was castle crashers, this really gives off that vibe. I love it mate.
As a huge fan of old Newgrounds Audio Portal, I approve! This fits the late-00s/early-2010s vibe very well. The melody starting at 2:08 reminds me of ParagonX9 a lot and shortly after I heard the bell synth I've got a strong Dimrain47 flashback. I wouldn't lie if I said the string section resembles Waterflame. Well done guys!
