This one had a great turnout and some history behind it. Newgrounds had recently went through an update that raised the maximum file capacity upload from 4MB to 8MB, which allowed me up to 8:30 of material per song. Of course, I would take immediate advantage. I wanted to give this one somewhat of a gimmick. The Aquatic Ruins always reminded me of some ancient Roman architecture and culture. I wanted to match that feel with orchestral instruments and a slower tempo. Added some more complex chords. Added some bells and xylophones for a bit of a touch. Still some volume problems but they weren’t too bad.

hehe

and the ''add to favourites, vote 5 and download'' rambage continues, good work here. (the only downside here that i don't really like is that this is not really fast song, but lets look at the bright side. this could have turned out really bad if you had made this a lot faster so don't even try to chance this song or i'l be kicking your sorry-ass :D )

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

You challenging me to battle eh? Perhaps I should make a fast version after all. XD

Naw, i tried to make it fast. Didn't work. Besides I like the slow feel for Aquatic Ruins. It's just the right feel for the level.

indeed

it is epic, but not too epic. i loved how you took your time with the beginning, slowly ending the intro then leaving only a single instrument to play for a bit (to me, it builds up, get me anticipated for what will hit), then you hit it all at once. it's truly a great style to create music. i hope to see similar styles with your newer songs when they come out.

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

That's not a bad idea either . . . only problem is that there aren't many songs that can work with this style, though I am devising one for Sonic 2 Wing Fortress . . . maybe I should get this down before I forget . . .

Anyway, thanks for the review, and you'll probably see something with this same style again

Too epic

Too epic...And I say that 100 times.

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

Too epic? Never heard of such a thing but I guess all opinions matter. Thnx for the review and honesty.

Doesn't have the right feeling

For a level with water, ancient ruins, loop-de-loops, and bright colors. The tempo, instrumentation doesn't work for Aquatic Ruins, maybe this style would work more for the later levels of Sonic 2, rather than an upbeat early level.

OMG

SOUNDS EPIC
LIKE A FIGHT
WAR OR FIGHT
IS ABOUT TO
HAPPEN!
