While a nice tune, I think it misses the compo goal...

I like the nostalgic/sadness feeling in this tune.

The last unexpected minor chord in the progression is what makes this tune. Lovely stuff from my main man.

But the snare ... /o ;)

Not entirely sold on the last chord in your chord progression. The echoes and attack effects on the lead voice are very atmospheric.

Nice as heck! The sounds are true power, to carry the player to one hell of a battle.

Very nice tune, but a little too sad to be a true victorious high-score tune.

I like, it has a special ambiance. Made me think of Judge Dredd (the sid that is :) for some reason.

Hi All!

Thank you for your comments. I really appreciate your honest feedback.

@Joe, your comment have pushed me an extra mile and I've managed to extend original tune by one extra minute. Thanks mate.

@All - I hope you gonna enjoy extended version. There is SID to be downloaded!

Well executed tune. But somehow it doesn't touch me - kinda boring mood (title fits perfectly).

Hell yeah!

can't believe how many "End-Tune" fetishists there are out there!

Or are you all power-ballad heads? :)

This is my favorite so far, it has a fresher feel and is a little less meandering than some of the other entries.

nice elements! :)

Hmm I really like this one. Don't know if I quite get the high-score feeling of it, maybe more the game-end-credit-part-feeling, but nevertheless a good power ballad.

Strangely appealing tune.

Psycho back to his more melodic style. I love how you ramp up those high notes and fade them out. A very soothing track.

I like this tune, good work Psycho8580! Your tune has a modern style or maybe timeless style. :)

Pleasure! This is an all-time feel good trip. That almost Hawkeye-like sweep made me think of some experiments I did a few years back; rolling Philip Glass music parallel to Jeoren Tel seamlessly, too bad it didn't last a while.

Nice one, reminds me of old, good PRI's tunes... *nostalgia overdose*
