I know I've said this about certain games in the past, but I really never expected to get a ReMix of Combatribes. I also never expected that it could yield such an interesting ReMix from guitar-wielding OCR regular K. Praslowicz. I must have dropped twenty bucks worth of quarters into this game back in the day. It's your typical Final Fight-esque side scrolling beat 'em up, except that the screen only scrolled so far in either direction (on the stages I played anyway). The real attraction - as the pic that K. graciously attached to his submission illustrates - is that you get to bash clowns. Something about maiming funnymen with big red noses is immensely therapeutic. Or so I've read . . . at any rate, it's great that this was ReMixed, as it preserves a little bit of arcade history and helps save this unique title from obscurity (well, at least a little). Mix itself is ambient rock; begins with vinyl static and a haunting, distant, chiming guitar. Slowly, gradual (slow-envelope) pads come in, then bells (with nice harmonics I might add) lead into the full-blown drums + guitar. The first real break has some great stripped down alternate drums at 2'16" and wailing guitars sounding similar to dolphin cries (well, they do!). Guitar solo in the last third of the mix is odd because it floats around the melodic base but is at times at very odd intervals. Doesn't at any point really come at you with a full-force melody or climax, but I like that as this seems like a track that's meant to float in, out, and around, leaving the listener with sort of a haunted emptiness. Or something like that - at any rate, if you like rock and even more ambient I do think you'll find the soundscapes that K.'s created in this mix worth exploring. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Recommended.
