Why's the rating so low on this? o3o
I was searching for "Egg Rocket", as I was looking for a cool remix of this tune...and your son appeared at the bottom of the list with a 1.99. I admit I wouldn't normally have clicked onto this tune, except I didn't really like ALL of the other songs (from a list of like 20) that came up.
And lo and behold, your tune is the superior one by far. Now I will say it's a little generic (and very quiet, for some reason, on my headphones), which is why I give the 8/10...but if you remastered this? =) Oh-ho! You could get a 10 from me if you just polished a few things (you made some mistakes with the notes) and added a little more variety to the tune. And volume, more volume. x3
I do like it though. Smooth, nice piano, good rock. So, 8/10 and 5/5 for you, good sir. =)
(And hopefully the fact I bumped your rating here from 1.99 to 2.78 will convince at least a few more people to give this song a try!)
Not too bad, but not exactly authentic.
Overall it sounds pretty good, though maybe a little too busy. But one thing people forget when trying to go for 8-bit remixes is the number of channels normally available for 8-bit.
The NES allowed for 5 sound channels, for instance, while the Gameboy (also 8-bit) allowed for 4.
This sounds like a lot more than 5, so...yeah. Authenticity is hard sometimes, but I might recommend you give it a shot.
I definitely know the ins and outs of the chiptune limit, a.k.a. the "golden rule" of 8-bit music, but I purposely choose to break it in my songs, because I feel it more entertaining to let 8-bit music be freed from its normal constraints. To me, it seems like it can expand and become something more beautiful.
*plays air guitar!*
Voted 5/5 10/10, because this song totally deserves it, and also because I freaking HATE people that vote 0 on things. >:P I shall avenge you!
Speaking of the song, I absolutely ADORE the part that comes in at 0:44. <3 That guitar was awesome. This tune really got me pumped!
Nice remastering. :3
It could have used some more enhancement to the percussion, but it's a still faithful remaster. Good work!
This definitely needs a higher score! Very catchy, fun, and happy. I've never played this game (I'm sure a lot of people haven't), but it always looked entertaining.
Dang, that's disturbing. XD
I like this...it screws with my head. XD Taking what I know and distorting it...freaking awesome!
Score +0.21, woot!
Hey, not bad!
It's not amazing, but I like it! Clever redux of the Cave tune...very funky! I suggest you continue work on this, and put more development into the tune...it was really going somewhere by the end, but I felt it quit too soon!
I'm surprised nobody has reviewed this! ^^;
thanx a lot XD
Wish there was more music like this on Newgrounds.
Simply haunting and beautiful...it seems the most tragic events oftentimes breed forth the greatest music...
Your response to the last reviewer is very true. Those we love who have moved on would most definitely want us to live our lives to the fullest.
Thanks for putting together such a powerful song.
thanx for the very nice words
if not the deepest feelings could inspire music, what else could ? too bad that tragic events tends to get most attention.
i hope we both will have some happy events in our lives to inspire us ;)
Considering your current score, it looks like this tune is being appreciate more than you expected. :) Good tune!
You know, it got an innitial score of around 3 after a week before steadily going up. I think the current score is a little inflated because if you listen to other works at a 4.5 they are much more impressive. I know I always say that I'm going to add to my songs but rarely do, but since I am a trombonist, it is likely that this one will be improved at some point.
That blew my mind.
I totally wasn't expecting an remix quite like this! It's absolutely epic! Wonderful tune, man!
Hey thanx much man. Definately worth the time I took
