Interesting. Some of the notes in the chiptune parts actual remind me of some of the old Game Boy Shantae notes with how the notes rolled, particularly a minute in. I have to say I really started to like this mix a lot half way through when it got more frantic, combining the electric guitar and chiptune together in a more driven sense. This was a fun song to listen to, and I kinda dig the idea of taking chiptunes and giving them a rock treatment and driving the intensity up a little bit. I actually hope to hear more aggressive chiptune/rock tracks like this in the future for more badass retro sounds. Awesome ReMix, I love it!
This is one of those ReMixes that I consider "HD" versions of themes, where it takes what I loved about a source theme as a kid and amplifies it, helping me remember what I loved about them in the first place. This mix accomplishes that by getting straight to the point with some rock that was very heavy on the guitars, as a good battle theme should be. Yeah, I wasn't crazy over the fade out, and the short length calls for a case of replay button abuse, but those two things aside, I gotta say I enjoyed the soloing right before the end also. This was a very well arranged ReMix managed to fit a hell of a lot into the length it had, which is great. An honor for K. Rool indeed.
Oooh, this is very cool sounding. Strong futuristic atmosphere with such a chill beat, and the vocals are amazing. Everything meshes together perfectly for a distinct cybernetic ReMix. I could easily picture myself listening to something like this while walking through an empty or less populated city at night. Very nice.
Wow! I doubt I have time to participate, unfortunately, but I'm thrilled to see Maniac Mansion getting some love. This is a great theme, lots of nostalgia for me. I spent so many hours playing this game, really loved that there were multiple ways to beat it. (And not to make this about me, but I did offer up two Maniac Mansion remixes on American Pixels, ya know, https://mazedude.bandcamp.com/album/american-pixels, nudge nudge wink wink. Maybe I should get one of them on OCR, eh?)
In some long lost Overclocked After Dark podcast, I also spoke at length about how this soundtrack needs more remixing. That said, I'm really looking forward to hearing the outcome of this!
