Oh I love those dirty synths and that masochistic sidechain that is torturing all of it... And triolas after the brake changed the tempo of whole song making already used up melody into something complete new... I must say I see huuuuge improvement in your production in this song and already waiting new ones :)


I see. Thank you for clarifying. In a way, even with the name change, I think it still makes sense. spells could be considered power-ups depending on the context.

Glad I could help. :)

Original 4 1/2 star review:

"My initial reaction is this: I can see the shoot'em-up this music would match to. Something in line with Ikaruga or the like. I think it definitely captures the vibe of cyber-themed action quite well.

After checking out the Kickstarter link, I also think it fits the video game in question nicely.

The only thing I'm not clear about is the name. Why this track called "Power Spells"?

Oh, and one other thing: the ending is strikingly sudden. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt because I don't know if this piece was intentionally written that way due to the requirements of the project or whatever.

Anyway, I think this is well expressed. I hope you find my review helpful. :)

Shifterhead responds:

Thanks for the review! The name was actually gonna be "Power Pills" like taking a power up or something but then that movie Power came out about pills that give you power and I didnt want that to have relation or something. So I just changed the last word without thinking too much about it jaja. Thanks for checking out the game, there's still a long way to go. Oh and yeah the ending was abrupt cause of a need of looping to another part of the song.
