MUSIC: A Tiny Spaceship’s Final Mission (FantomenK)

Synopsis (from site):

“A song about a ship which was the earth’s only hope.”

Personal thoughts:

Listen to this tune; reminiscent of the classic 8-bit/16-bit sci-fi shooter era of video gaming, especially of personal favorites – Gradius, R-Type, Forgotten Worlds, Darius Twin. I played these much to the end, for their atmospheric combination of fantastic gameplay, challenge, artistic style, and atmospheric music. For the “Final Mission,” this score brings to mind the constant theme of a sole hero setting out in some speedy spaceship. Ahead, is some threatening adversary for the peace of the universe; probably surrounded by ridiculous overwhelming numbers. The best friends of our hero will be incredible skill, wit, and the occasional power-up (maybe a cheat code if the hero sucks at previous attributes). The best reward will be the mass destruction of enemies and obstacles leading to the cosmic overthreat (is it a giant face or some brain thing?). Then do it again, in “hard” or “expert” mode. Some of this satisfaction will involve insane firepower-ups and a meaningless score of at least ten digits. The sound here, is probably the open stage for our hero. Don’t worry, the first boss will be easy..eventually.
