Freaky sounding
video game effect sounds. Low fi yet hi fi. I def. could hear this in a nintendo game. Pretty interesting new elements come in as the song goes along. This is cool.
Check out my latest song called Dollar Store Christmas w/ Jerry Rissew

love the bendy bits
Gives this thing a really dizzy off-kilter feel. Good use of 8-bit style effects and raspy game sound stuff. Drunk Ninja Spellcaster stuff :-)

I liked it!
Starts of very quirky and then really takes off into something very neat. Good job on this!

I love this stuff.... Trying to imagine what game i would suit. Maybe a overhead space shooter with psychedelic backdrops??
Cool retro stuff

Nicely done
I like when it kicks in. Evolves nicely. Would make a great soundtrack for film.

very retro, but with some fresh beats. I love the atmospheric stuff going on in the background. what makes this great is that there is an actual song here, not just a collection of sound effects. you used these sounds very nicely. a cool story you're telling. mario comes to the 21st century.

This would
definitely keep me enthralled in a game - very nice use of the minor key. Could be a game about a lost ghost maybe?

very creative
goes unexpected ways, and has the intrigue, humor and puzzle energy a game should have. i like how you are in control of the dissonant elements and let them cause some mischief without letting them interrupt the flow. Cool intro - unexpected en

Nice one
Good use of the old school video game sound to still make a dark sounding track.

Nice sounds
But I especially like the Dorian/minorish melodies here--just enough minor tension to be engaging but not distracting. Nicely done!

I always
enjoy a good chip tune! Nice and frantic, though not too much. I did some game tunes a couple of years ago and I must say, I really enjoyed working on them. They give you, the artist, a clear direction, yet enough paths to get there. Thank you for sharing! Marc

I love this!!
So, who or what do I have to shoot to get to level 2 then? Ha!! This is so very cool, I actually feel like I'm inside this game, traveling tunnels of dark, despairing instrumentation. Love the bleeps and bloops...awesome stuff Jay!!

Extra Man
This is really a great game atmosphere. I'm strolling around heavily pixilated, but very aware of the trap door.

I wish this didn't end so abruptly, but since it did, I was expecting a sound that let me know my man died and I didn't get that extra man.

Game Over.
