I'm listening to this now while working on homework. I was like, damn this is some awesome stuff he's doing, especially with the melody instrument at around 0:47 — better go vote on it — oh wait, I already did!
Anyway, the whole thing really reminds me of VVVVVV. Must be a Swedish thing :3
Thank you 3ndymion, for voting, commenting and faving! :D Have a boon on me ;)
Can't say I know of "Shadow of the Beast", but my style is very "gamey" and based in C-64 and Amiga music which of course, even due to severe rivalry, had some musical crossover with Atari. That I sometimes hit some combination of notes reminding of something else isn't all that strange ;)
