Yes - this is one of my favorites of the past couple months, and my favorite of mutagene's as well. I'm very glad he made it, because I think it proves he can do melodic techno as well as the excellent atmospheric electronica he's previously contributed with his shadow of the Beast ReMixes. My personal preference is for the former - I dig both - but I'm a cheesy melodyman at heart, and this GREAT ReMix from an amiga game I've never even heard of is REALLY catchy. Guaranteed to stick in your mind decades after you listen to it. Processing tricks, sequencing goodness, VARIETY, funkiness . . it's all there, a true Grade A+ ReMix in my book. If I had to make a mix cd from all the ReMixes on the site, it would make the cut. Bravo.

This really is catchy and fun to listen to. Nice blend of electronica and some chiptune inspired elements.I actually enjoy the retro vibe of this mix, but I do have to agree that more of the piano and a bit of a sound update would have made this incredible. Plenty of great ideas and the arrangement is damn good. Liked this one a lot, actually. Nicely done.

Interesting mix - it reminds me of djpretzel's Revival Day Impoetus, but perhaps a bit more repetitive and a little more upbeat. For a song so long, I feel like it could use some more variation. Otherwise, it's a pretty nice song.

I love it a lot. This is really a fun song. I could never listen to it only once at a time; it is quite loopable. I disagree about the comments mentioning sample problems. This mix is perfect as it is. Truly mutagene goodness.

Sounds are definately chiptune-esq, but I don't think it's that bad. They work as they are, though a sound update would be very nice.

The song is quite catchy, the melody especially. I was able to really enjoy listening to this song, whether it was in the background or I was actively listening to it. Worth getting still.

I didn't like that chiptuneish lead very much; didn't mesh well with the other instrumentation IMO. Transition to the piano at 1:38 was very nice though; I could have used more of that. The beatwork changing up more often also would have been a nice touch. Melodically though, I liked the direction this went in.

Great piano intro, but from there, the sound quality goes a bit downhill and whether or not the sounds are all presets, I can't tell for sure, but it gets really bad, IMO, though the arrangement is very good.

A pretty clear oldskool mix that would be awesome if the sound quality was updated.

My head hurts and I should definitely be cooking, but some of the sounds used in this mix are really trippybleepily delicious. I hurt for words to describe them, but a thousand tactile sensations come to mind (the strongest being a kind of multicolored rubbery candy plastic). Definitely a good sign when a mix induces mild synaesthesia.

This could very well be my favorite mix in the archive. It's that good. A playlist without this song in it is like a vacuum on steroids: It sucks muchly. I give it a 10/10.

I haven`t heard the original soundtrack to this game yet but I really think this is a nice song with a catchy melody and definitely is worth downloading! :D

This starts out with a breif piano melody, but it isn't long before the techno beat kicks in. Cool slow strings and good synths (especially one that sounds almost like an ethnic instrument) make their appearances. Pretty good use of reverb, too. This is a good song, but that little thing that makes it a GREAT song is just a little out of reach...
