Fun little game!! I really enjoyed the gameplay, I liked that the object of the game wasn't just 'match as many as possible'. As much as I adored the song that loops, would be nice to have a few more tracks to keep me interested for longer!

This track is great, builds up really nicely, and a really good choice of synths that suit each other but also don't just sound like any other techno song. Really nicely nixed!

Thanks Jake! :D
Glad you enjoyed it.

This song gives me a really 'cool' feeling, like a cool breeze on a hot day kind of thing. I would also describe it as beautiful and refreshing.

The mix and arrangement of the instruments is at a really high standard, the rhythm and lead sections both stand out but meld together really well. Probably my biggest suggestion would be to repeat part of the soft intro at the end of the song (I know this is a bit cleched) to give you that sense of calm again.


FIrst off, overall the track sounds good and is interesting to listen to, good job! Something that I find is one of the most useful tools when sequencing/programming is the ability to control velocity. From what I can hear most of the instruments are just being played at one velocity which makes them sound a bit mechanical, so I'd just maybe go through and change some velocities around- eg. higher velocity for accented notes, and lower velocity for non accented notes.

The string vst has a really nice sound to it, and I can hear that there are accents in there and you're aware of that kind of thing. Anyway hope that advice helps at all. Once again good job!

Thankyou for the review!
I'm still quite unsure as to what velocity even does to a sound at the moment. I'm in those early stages of learning what every little term means, so I'll definately research into it and tweak those sounds to make em sound more alive.
I'm glad you thought that it atleast sounded interesting, I was going for more of an epic feel towards the end though, so maybe the velocity will help!

Thanks again!

I'm a huge fan of the massive eyes! I like the unique-ness of it. Really like the overall style, especially the way the water is done.
