Really held on to my attention, even though there are a lot of quiet spots. I liked the overlaying melody at 1:40, and, well, it changes too much to point much else out, but it's all good. Everything feels very intentional.

Glad to finally have someone accompany my Tetris Attack mix! Also, considering my TA remix was ALSO my debut mix on OCR, this one is a little extra special.

Love how mellow it is despite the craziness of the beat.

Congrats mate!

This is an unusual little mix, but in a very good way. Its very imaginative, and has some very creative ideas. I also enjoyed the lead sequencing :D

Some of the sounds are a little simple (this mix certainly has an 8-bit feel to it) but it works great :)

Nice work :nicework:

I am going to say that for me, the best part is the first transition from the fish's stage music to Poochie the dog's stage music. The way the chords started at 1:24, moving into the dancing single notes at 1:32 to whole hog at 1:40. I almost didn't realize it had switched it was so beautifully subtle! Great work!

Love the chiptune aesthetic! The source tunes are nice to begin with, but you did some nifty things to expand upon them and make them your own. Your mix is light and fun, but what really grabs me is how it also sounds hopeful and uplifting, especially the bits after 0:54 and 2:56... you put some heart in here and it shows.

I dig all your remixes. Please keep mixing and submitting! And everyone else, do yourself a favor and check out halcyon's other works that haven't made it here (yet?); they don't disappoint.

Great textures and attention to detail! Great panning and sound selection, and the source sounds pretty great with the adjustments you've made. Excellent and varied sections, and a good flow throughout.

Really playful leads and counterpoint ideas and percussion that is a bit reminiscent of Ziwtra. Definitely a good thing, as far as i'm concerned.

I was *really* hoping for a pad-supported breakdown with maybe a gated synth to keep the momentum up, but I can wait until next time to hear it. Keep it in mind though, I think it'd be beautiful.

One of my favorite mixes I've heard in awhile. :-)

Your arrangement skills are solid in my honest opinion - everything you've done with this song fits like a glove, a cute, fuzzy glove. I thoroughly enjoyed it - definitely looking forward to more from you.

I'm glad to see another Tetris Attack submission! I think this remix does a great job of adding new character to the source while maintaining the general theme of the source material (IE happy and light). Tetris Attack was/is an awesome game and your mix brings justice to that fact :) .

I've always loved the soundtrack to this game, and I've always wondered why it didn't receive more attention. I really, really love this mix. I could listen to it all day! I love the variety, the way it just *fits* while being so different and shiny and new...!

Definitely a tune that makes me smile every time I hear it!
