It's great to hear a remix from an open source game for a change. I think there are some hidden gems out there - or at least some potential hidden gems. I'd like to be able to exploit that when I get proficient enough.

This one should have been in the game originally :). I can imagine it being in a loop during gameplay, and it wouldn't get annoying. Five stars.

Yes! It's a mix from a game I've actually played! :tomatoface:


That aside, I really dig this. The bassline is delicious, as has been pointed out, and the entire song has this deliberate, driving vibe that I really like. Nice work! :nicework:

I still remember when the three of us played this at my house :-) That was a super-fun night, I can't even remember whether it was you or DarkSim that introduced it to everybody.

Not much more I can say aside from what I left in my judge comments, but this mix will always remind me of that night! So glad to see this on the front page, mate :-D

I saw "Hogs of war" and almost had a heart attack thinking someone remixed that game, which ironically enough is very very similar to hedge and worms. (Maybe DarkSim knew this? :3)

And even though I don't know the source this mix is great! Has a great energy to it.

Pretty sure it was me, since I've had it as a LAN party staple for a few years now.

Thanks for the kind comments, people! I didn't actually realise Hogs of War was a game... woops!

Jewbei: yeah, you never know who is listening to and being inspired by your music, and that's one of the things that makes sharing stuff so rewarding.

Making trance that doesn't get boring/repetitive or seem like it takes too long to hit a groove is key, and obviously after hearing this, DarkSim has that key. Fantastic, especially the second half where it picks up and then drops into those thick beats. Nice work.

So, trance is suppose to be repeatitive, right? Well, even is this is so, I never got bored of this one. Love the transition at 1:12 that makes this mix more variable and also give some time to gain energy for next, groovy section. I don't like how the source sounds. But this is solid hard-hitting action, that's japanese-flavored as well. BTW, dat bass is cool.
