Was great! I am really pleased with this games soundtrack.
However, i felt the soundtrack for Larry and the Gnomes should have received a more bombastic and fun approach. Your scores matched well with all the parts of the game, but i still wanted to feel more bouncy, since the game seemed to play more of your epic music constantly through the game. It needed to hear much more of 0:00 and 0:53.
So i really suggest keeping it fun, bouncy, epic, and bombastic all at the same time, and you will sustain a really great soundtrack for this game! :D
Btw 1:23 is your most original and creative score so far. Make it great on the CD!
Hey Jamal, great to see a review from you :). For the most part, I agree with what you've said. I think Larry and the Gnomes could have been bouncier in places and worked very well, but I'm happy with these results. I tried to create a sense of progression through the levels from light + fluffy to hard-hitting and bombastic. The game's difficulty increases each stage, as do the aggression of the gnomes and the ferocity of their weapons. I feel like the turning point in the game is at the start of the second boss, and I tried to communicate that through the soundtrack. Up until that point the gnomes don't present much of a challenge, but it becomes clear they shouldn't be messed with once you enter the forest!
So far the music on the CD has turned out really well. I've still got a lot to do, but I've done a lot of mastering to the tracks to give them a more polished sound compared to what's heard here.
Anyway, thanks for dropping by and for your support!
Fun and great, but you need to add more to this. Firstly, enhance the solo so it is playing throughout the song. It really made an impression on the song as a whole.
Also, add more orchestral instruments, i would suggest Cello and Contrabass the most in the song, give Contrabass pizzicato (which is plucked). Cello would be more legato on this. Also even add some sax's in this, will sound really hot.
And there you go. I suggest at least giving it a shot.
Holy shit! Wow, cant believe i never listened to this! Really stellar song you got here my man, really impressive.
I like it!
Is very nice combination between the piano and flute, reminds me of the game Medievil, which was always enjoyable to me.
keep working on it :D
Not bad, but its a remix, which is usually never my interest sadly. However I can tell you did an amazing job remixing it.
so 7/10 because its a remix, i know, im biased.
Yeah it is a remix :D But it sounds good :D Lol bias much yeah
You are probably one of the greatest orchestrators here on newgrounds, I mean seriously this kicks ass.
I can tell you can play, but it seems the bagpipes are a bit...well...off tune completely.
Oh well, good job.
I mainly noticed the offtune in the drones, and I tried my best to get them in tune, but the best I would get was around 15 cents from it being the right tuning. And the bagpipe reed could be off tune, but I found that where the reed is is one of the only places I could have it without one note or another sounding scratchy.
Thanks for the review!
Im really starting to get a feel for this game. Very ominous sound, with a bit of orchestration, so im guessing this is a science fiction game, for sure, but theres a taste of something that existed before, that is in something new.
Very clever rucklo.
well, it's a fictional game, at least. OR MAYBE IT'S NOT!!! :O:O:O
you're actually right in a way... but you'll see :)
cheers for the reviews man!
I like this
I have not played the game yet, but i feel as if i can get a sense of the mood of the game through the music.
The song had a pretty catchy ass tune :D
Thanks man! Yeah the game is gonna be kickass, trust me! It will be launched wednesday, if all goes according to the schedual at least. :)
I wanted to thank you for adding me to your favorite artists, by listening and reviewing one of your songs.
This song was quite incredible, I had it playing for a couple minutes now. However there are some things that kind of bugged me about this song.
Theres a part between 0:57 to the rest of the song, where the notes sound out of key. I can tell what you were trying to get at, and you were close, but not quite.
Other than that great song 9/10.
I'm trying to figure out what sounds out of key.....
I'll figure it out eventually lol
Anyways thanks for the review.
