Oh, sounds very cool. The song is like from some classic 80s game.
What chip does PC Engine have? Reminds me of AY, but nowadays one never knows.
In many aspects.

Cool man I like that this has your dungeon style music, but with a bit more upbeat feel to it. I especially like the changing rhythm after the intro sections.

@Yerzmyey : the chip is called "HuC6280A", and it is both the CPU and the sound processor, a all-in-one chip in the same way as the gameboy. (and it also looks very nice with the bee logo)
It's a PSG square waves generator, similar to the AY (minus the envelope which can be found on AY), but with 6 channels and some sample capabilities. I'm using it in a very simple way, like for most of my tunes, but there are very "advanced" musics for this chip (given the fact it's a simple 8-bit chip).

@th4 D34D: thanks! I try to add some tempo variations in a few of my tunes.

@garvalf/yerzmyey: a bit different than that. 6 channels of 32 5-bit sample wavetable synthesis; with alternative possible DAC mode on each. has a noise generator on one channel, and LFO on another for crude FM. not really like the AY/YM.

The variety with the melody line and tempo is good and I get what you're going for, I just feel like adding in a bit of key changes here and there would generate more tension.
