Soundtrack for a NES Platformer featuring a young boy called Dustin. At the moment i only had time and space for 2 stages, a boss theme, a credits theme, a title theme and a Character Select theme, but that's the 6 minute rule for ya lol.
The game is a standard platformer A La Mario or Sonic kind of thing, but with a bit of a cool kid attitude in the character development, hence why the soundtrack is rave focused. That and it was quickest style to do, so i could make a number of pieces, instead of just one. It was about being efficient, especially when working with limitations. I also tried to make it close to the original limitations as possible. So that means 5 channels max, including 1 DPCM channel, 1 noise channel, 1 triangle channel and 2 squares. I also make use of the Arpeggio function. Enough about that though, let's go through the tracklisting:
- Title Theme
- Character Select
- Stage 1 - The City
- Stage 2 - The Spooky Castle
- Boss Theme
- Credits Theme
And that is all. I hope you enjoy this fun little quirky thing!
There's never a moment
Where I didn't notice you
What was it that brought us near
A word, a glance, an excuse to wave
A smile, a chance, a reason to give
There's a time for time, and more.
What do you take me for
Walking me with you to your door
What do you like about me
Not sure how things got this way
But being with you there's nothing to say
I like how things are going
So let's go beyond
I like how things got this way
Being with you there's so much to say
Let's keep going
Let's go beyond
It's been over two years since
And I think it's time to end
But you just want for things to go on
And I'm so tired of doing the same
Two dozen sounds enough
So maybe I'll prepare one more
And it will have all the songs I made for you
And it will be the final thing I'll do
But I don't want you to feel sad and sorry
There will be another time to feel this good
You should feel glad that we could share this story
Let us prepare for what comes next
