PSH

I liked it because the art and animation was good, and also the fox sounded like Phillip Seymour Hoffman, which is awesome.

:o !!

I had to check out the game since it features my music. I thought it was quiet neat. I love puzzle games and this one isn't bad at all. Perhaps some sound effects would have been nice, but overall the game does what it sets out to do. 4/5 (:

FlyingColours responds:

Thanks for the review! I've never really done sound effects in a game before and I intend to start doing that after I've finished the game I'm working on.

What?!

I had no idea my music was used in this game until just now... Wow. Fun game. I like shmups. I think it could be expanded, though. More Gods to kill, like Zeus, Odin, Thor, Aztec Gods and such. Each God would have different ways of attacking.

Nice quiz

I only got 3690. I wasn't quite sure about which BMW the M5 was, and I also accidentally clicked on the wrong one a couple times lol. Overall this was pretty cool. It was really easy for anyone who knows their cars. For someone else, I can see how this would be hard.

I really like this version. Very different and dark.

I love, love, LOVE classical piano. I attempted to compose a nocturne... well, it's still an unfinished pile of papers... :p

Now, this nocturne you've written is very, very nice. There isn't much more I can expound upon because you've executed it so well. Keep up the good work (:

BlazingDragon responds:

If you want to write a nocturne, try looking at one by Chopin and try analyzing it. A lot of times, nocturnes are VERY simple and repetitive left hand patterns with melodies in the right that emulate the human voice. They tend to be highly ornamented and chromatic but also singable.

For this piece, I listened to Chopin's C# Minor Nocturne (#20) and modeled the left hand accompaniment after that. Then, I came up with the basic chord progression and came up with a sketch of the melody. For form, I basically made it ABA with some elaborations and an ending. This process might not work for you, but analyzing the Chopin gave me a lot of great ideas.

Thanks for the review!

This piece took me back to a time when I was about 12 years old. It reminds me of times when I was really into books. I read a lot of great classics during that time. The Hobbit, Treasure Island, Peter Pan, The Hunchback, etc. Great American classics. I don't know why, but this music immediately sparked a reminiscence, and brought a genuine smile to my face.

Musically, you've written a wonderful little melody that makes a lot of sense. It says what it wants, and doesn't confound it with unnecessary extras.

Wonderful music, friend.

BlazingDragon responds:

Reading is such a wonderful pleasure. I'm glad this was able to bring back fond memories for you! Thanks for the review.

This is an awesome work of art. The way you captured the epic large scale feel is uncanny. I'd like to compose an epic orchestral piece for this art. In fact, I might do that. I'll let you know if I post it, and I would appreciate a returned review :).
