Blip to be Square

I've wanted to make a chiptune for a few years; I had a SMS 2 growing up and still have the tunes stuck in my head. Even though DefleMask is great, and the documentation excellent, I wasn't prepared for how much work goes into getting the notes to fit. I've gained a lot of respect for the musicians (past and present) who are able to make memorable tunes despite the technical limitations.

Good first tune, and welcome to BotB!! \.o./
Sounds like some "1st level in a platformer"-type VGM here. :p

Welcome man! Nice first tune :D. I agree with Quirby. Very classic VGM sound which is always a plus in my book. I look forward to more from you :). Keep up the good work.

Thanks heaps, stewboy, Jredd (and Quirby64). As a first timer I was certain I'd make a big gaff and get pulled up for it. Anyway, I appreciate you taking it easy on me. I certainly admire the genre even more for having had a go at it. It's been a strenuous left brain/right brain workout, and surely that's a good thing:)

Hey growley - sure! I grew up near Fremantle; most people I knew either had a Commodore 64 or a Master System 2 (or Atari 2600). My sister's friend had an NES with a pirate multi-game cart...and some guy from tee-ball had one as well, but that was it for Nintendo. They were definitely available, but I have a feeling they were pricier (and the games came in cardboard boxes - lame.)
