Reviews for "-Orr- Larry and the Gnomes"


But alot of them sound really familiar, like remixes of something else. Or am I just imagining things?

DavidOrr responds:

I think you're imagining things - I'm sure there are pieces that follow similar progressions or have similar instrumentation/style, but they're not remixes :). Thanks for the review!


10 stars and faved.


Was great! I am really pleased with this games soundtrack.

However, i felt the soundtrack for Larry and the Gnomes should have received a more bombastic and fun approach. Your scores matched well with all the parts of the game, but i still wanted to feel more bouncy, since the game seemed to play more of your epic music constantly through the game. It needed to hear much more of 0:00 and 0:53.

So i really suggest keeping it fun, bouncy, epic, and bombastic all at the same time, and you will sustain a really great soundtrack for this game! :D

Btw 1:23 is your most original and creative score so far. Make it great on the CD!


DavidOrr responds:

Hey Jamal, great to see a review from you :). For the most part, I agree with what you've said. I think Larry and the Gnomes could have been bouncier in places and worked very well, but I'm happy with these results. I tried to create a sense of progression through the levels from light + fluffy to hard-hitting and bombastic. The game's difficulty increases each stage, as do the aggression of the gnomes and the ferocity of their weapons. I feel like the turning point in the game is at the start of the second boss, and I tried to communicate that through the soundtrack. Up until that point the gnomes don't present much of a challenge, but it becomes clear they shouldn't be messed with once you enter the forest!

So far the music on the CD has turned out really well. I've still got a lot to do, but I've done a lot of mastering to the tracks to give them a more polished sound compared to what's heard here.

Anyway, thanks for dropping by and for your support!


This is fucking epic.
I haven´t played Larry yet, i´m too tired now but i´m definitely going to do it tomorrow.

What vst´s this?
East West Complete composers collection?
East West Goliath?
Or is this an actual orchestra playing this?
This sounds so realistic.
These are probably the best scores i've ever heard.
This is film quality, what are you doing on newgrounds?
Especially the first one.
So much going on there, so much structure.
You sir, are a genius.

DavidOrr responds:

Thank you! This is a variety of East West plugins (pretty much everything in the composer collection plus a couple). Newgrounds has a wonderful community with a variety of talent - I don't think I'd stop visiting Newgrounds and submitting clips even if I were scoring music for the top films in the industry. Plus, you never know who's watching :)

Thank you for your kind words and support!

My favorite part isn't here

I like the music in Larry And The Gnomes in the level with a large acid pool
but the first is nice too
