Drums on every beat, that's it. It reminded me of some of your earlier tunes. I can't for the life of me remember which Nintendo tune those chords sound like, it's been way too long since I played any of the games.

Dane: Personally I thought of a passage from the ending theme in Super Metroid when I listened to the result, but I guess variations of it has been used in a lot of places - it feels really classic, and I think anybody'd be hard pressed to convey the same mood through music without basing it on the same play on chords.

If anyone can find a better match for the melody, please let me know; it's been bugging me. :-) The same sequence of chords (with the bass remaining on the same note) is used in music from for example Super Mario Bros 2 and Little Nemo: Dream Master, but none of them are close matches melody wise.

As for metal drums I'm not sure whether you mean the instrument sounds or the rhythms (the snare-on-every-beat segment?), but power ballads are above all a (glam) metal songwriting style in any case.

It starts out as most others but as soon as the percussion goes metal I know it's a RadiantX tune. The part around 1:38 reminds me of Nintendo, not sure which game.

Yes! This is something I would expect to hear in high score table after game over while choosing letters of my name with joystick. Solid stuff.

Cool, this sounds like you tried to make a happy *and* sad highscore tune. Very good one.
