Okay - this is probably the Blaster Master ReMix many have been waiting for. Not because it's superior to the other fine BM ReMixes we've had throughout the ages, but because it's fun, happy techno, which I know a lot of people like. And besides that, it IS pretty damn cool. AmIEvil, who is usually either kickass, beautiful, or melancholy, musically speaking, was clearly simply having good clean fun with this one. Technodance, with some nice frills like a 'woo' shout, the crunchy digital synth, and fun little organ runs that almost sound like Irish jigs - stays pretty true to the original and throws just enough new stuff in, while giving everything more ummph.

I had a love/hate relationship with Blaster Master growing up, but I always loved the music - especially Area 5. Even if that is where I Game Over'd a lot. Stupid giant crab...

This is very upbeat, I like that. I also really like the organ bits in here, and the way they're being used. Beginning was a touch repetitive imo, but aside from that this is pretty original stuff. It's easy to listen to and it's easy to find yourself moving to it and bobbing your head without even realizing it. Fade out endings don't bother me that much, but I found this fade out to be a little too long and drawn out. Still, that's a pretty minor nitpick and it's not like it kills the song.

I hope more people check this one out and give it more love.

The beat's very bouncy, and when we first break into the melody, the first thing I was reminded of was the soundtrack from "Tinhead": very light and sugary. AIE doesn't really break any new ground with this particular track, but if you're looking for something with an upbeat club sort of vibe, here's your tune.

My rating: 3/5

I love this mix! My one and only complaint is that the lead-in is too long -- it goes on for 8 measures when one would expect it to start after just 4. Personally, I love the square-wave section, but I think my ears are tuned a little differently than most.

Very bouncy, very catchy. I'd describe this as a 'fun' remix.

Cheerful and bouncy, this mix is perfect for bopping back and forth to. The approach is simple, but the execution is sound. Especially nice is the organ runs throughout. It's probably the nostalgia talking, but this really does have a blaster master feel to it, even though i'm not sure how this happy sort of music could be related to going inside the earth's crust chasing after a frog.

Actually, I suppose the complete exuberance of this track fits the completely absurd storyline of the game just fine. :)

Huh! Looks like I've found a new favorite remix. ^_^ Any time that an obscure game has a first level tune which is suddenly given a danceable new electroclash's ALWAYS good! Awesome work!!

I swear that sample heard at 1:36 is Bomb Man's theme from Megaman 1.

It most definitely is!

Anyway, this is a really nice remix, easy on the ears yet very catchy. As usual, some high quality work from regular AmIEvil! I haven't played the original game, so I can't judge how close/far the remix is from it, but it hardly matters when it's this good! :-D

My only complaint about this song is I can't even figure out which song in the game it's based off of. Otherwise it's a nice tune.

Dang, how I could reminesque about this game, and shooting all those evil flying bee's and worms, and I'm only 15 years old here. This was a great game, which was very long for the time of games like this. I enjoy how happy this song is, and when I listened to it, I smiled quite alot. I nearly wanted to hop out of my little spinny chair, and dance, but then I couldnt tell you how good the song was.

This is definately recommended in my oppinion. Its sounds are quite smooth, are pleasing to the ears.

I swear that sample heard at 1:36 is Bomb Man's theme from Megaman 1.

ps: if i'm right, this was the tune from the ending credits right?
Nope, it's from level 5, the water level.

This is definitely one of AmIEvil's best pieces (with the best being CastleMania), and also one of the original game's best tracks. Well done!

This mix is a little too simple I think...

It's doesn't do the original soundtrack justice...

And why isn't there any more Blaster Master remixxes???



This is my 50:th post. Jipie!

Wow, this is one great tune! I can't believe there's been only 1 post for this mix... It's sooooo happy, it'll make you smile! I can't stop my head from boppin along to this tune when i'm working on the pc. anyways, i give this one a 9/10 why only 9?

well, there's this annoying sound effect he uses at 1:36. If that sound had more variables of high/low then, i woulda gave this track a PerFect!

ps: if i'm right, this was the tune from the ending credits right?
