Embodiment of Scarlet Devil: Game rip

Prehistorik 2: Game rip
"Chiptune at Its Best" (by Street Spirit, 7 Jan 2012) [9/10]
Well, I haven't actually played the game but saw a video of it in youtube and the music just haunted me =D It somehow reminds me my childhood, the days of fun :D
Legend Of Kyrandia 2: Game rip
"Nice smooth and jazzy music" (by Eugene LeKakapo, 31 Dec 2011) [7/10]
Kyrandia 2's soundtrack is divided between jazzy, funky, eastern, rock and humourous pieces.
The humourous ones are unremarkable. The quality here lies on the other songs.
First of all, the tunes are as melodic as groovy, which is quite rare. Then, the tunes often have interesting song structures, shifting tastefully from a style to another within a single song. You'll notice the orchestration too, which is well thought (the work on the electric bass parts is really stunning).
Of course there are fillers, but the good songs ARE good.
I'd say the best tune in this collection is the "Swamp" theme which contains all the qualities told above.
I remember the songs fitting well to the game and even adding a modern dimension with taste.
Dune 2: Game rip
"The old classic RTS game" (by Warcow, 19 Dec 2011) [10/10]
A cool old classic real time strategy game which is a milestone of its genre and the music is good and fits the game really well. It has no ambient tracks, just plain songs with an own typical sound, which is great! I dig it and especially fans of old pcgame music will probably also do that. Another scoreupdate.
Silverball: Game rip
"Snooker champ" (by Warcow, 19 Dec 2011) [7/10]
The old pinballgames used to provide some good music and so does this. It's very varied in quality though, some tracks are interesting and some aren't in my opinion but overall it's pretty descent. Fans to old Jazz Jackrabbit music will most likely like the track to the Nova table (track named "eyond music" here).
Dune 2000: Game rip
"Dune new Millennia version" (by Warcow, 19 Dec 2011) [5/10]
This soundtrack is remakes of the old Dune tunes but much more ambient, like sadly enough most of new computermusic made today. It's not that bad of a soundtrack though since they're based on really good original songs but it's not really my cup of tea.
Dune: Game rip
"Shaddam Corrino IV" (by Warcow, 19 Dec 2011) [10/10]
Eventhough I'm a bigger fan of the music of the second game in this serie, it's great to hear the original music to the first Dune game, it's well done and very atmospheric. It also gives back some nostalgic memories which increases the rating. Got an mp3 rip of it recently that I've been listening to and realised how good it is so I had to make an update on the score.
Mystic Towers: Game rip
"Lazarine" (by Warcow, 19 Dec 2011) [5/10]
I'm not as fond of this music as the other reviewers here, some parts are good but overall I find it very average.
Alone In The Dark 2: Game rip
"9 is the magic number" (by Warcow, 12 Dec 2011) [9/10]
This soundtrack is a really, really good soundtrack with romantic, pirate-inspired and with some Christmas influences. I have listened to it countless times and I'm not bored of it yet. The composer is a bit unknown to me too but a very talanted one. I actually had the original cd with this game (with soundtrack playable in a cd-player) years ago but fortunately I found the mp3 rip on the net.
Diablo (Blizzard): Game rip
"Stay a while and listen" (by Warcow, 16 Nov 2011) [9/10]
The town and the first dungeon songs are really good in my opinion and I also really enjoy the intro song and the tune when being in the hell levels. The whole atmosphere of those songs are great with medieval/gothic type of melodies and some with plain evil music. The other songs, Catacombs and Caves, are a bit ambient but with a few melodic parts here and there, one of them contains an electric guitar. I think it is a soundtrack that grows more and more so it requires atleast a couple of listenings before it can be fully appreciated, atleast it was that way for me.
Doom 2: Game rip
"Hell on earth" (by Warcow, 16 Nov 2011) [9/10]
Just as good as the first game's soundtrack with songs that makes it a pleasure to play the game. A funny thing is that Bobby have used some parts from some metalsongs (Pantera, Alice in chains and Slayer for example) but have turned them around and made his own trademark on those parts and made new cool songs out of them. The songs I'm referring to are Dead simple, Courtyard and Barrels o fun. The slightly re-made Wolfenstein songs in the hidden maps are also cool.
Doom: Game rip
"IDDQD, IDKFA and IDSPISPOPD/IDCLIP" (by Warcow, 16 Nov 2011) [9/10]
Can't believe I haven't made a review on this classic soundtrack yet but here it goes. Started playing it along with Wolfenstein 3-D in 1993 and I immediately got hooked on the music (that I appreciate most when playing games really) that are really evil, melancholic and creepy. The songs fits the game superb and there's a vast variety in the songs. (Side note: It's weird how the cheat codes to this game seem to be permanentely burned into my brain.)
Unreal Tournament: Game rip
"New to trackers" (by akira2k, 28 Oct 2011) [10/10]
Amazing, epic game, epic soundtrack.
Miss the days i played this on my Dreamcast.
This is a must have/download pack of .IT music.
Apano Sin: Game rip
"ho hum" (by Razorback, 6 Oct 2011) [5/10]
Bland fast technoish tunes. A bit dated and dull.
Duke Nukem 2: Game rip
"Yeah, this is Bobby Sound :)" (by Verbatim, 28 Sep 2011) [9/10]
i love the orginal FM synth Versions also
above all, there are very nice Synth Lead Lines, this Songs deserve studio quality with help of Midi Files
i converted already some Duke Nukem IMF Files 2 Midi, fixed the speed problems, revoiced the patches, with my Sw1000XG, i will soon share two versions of some Songs i have converted in GM / XG(for Yamaha Devices)
possibly i will record some examples of this converting songs, with my Sw1000XG, in the future i get the flagship Motif XS / XF by Yamaha (a Workstation / Keyboard / Midiexpander/ Synthesizer) to record hundreds DOS game midi soundtracks :)
Greez to all Midifans
ShadowWraith: Game rip
"Very nice" (by 5260, 5 Sep 2011) [8/10]
I didn't play the game much (only had a demo), But the track "Stardust" really caught my attention! Now I have it!!!
Lucky my Linux music player(ubuntu 9.04) can play this type of sound, or I would be outta luck. I guess it could be converted to mp3 for people, but never get rid of the original, of course.
Gun.Smoke: Game rip
"No (Gun)smoking please" (by Warcow, 28 Aug 2011) [8/10]
I had to make an update on this one and upgrade the score on it. Cool cowboy tunes and the second song in the archive is a real classic, would be awesome if they put it in a soundtrack to a spaghettiwestern-movie.
Strider: Game rip
"Cypher" (by Warcow, 28 Aug 2011) [7/10]
A great game with a pretty original soundtrack and cool ideas. Since the archive is combined with both music and soundeffects/short ingametunes, it's difficult to make an overall rating but I'll judge only on the music, which I mostly like. Personal favourites are Raid and Mass of cloud.
And I agree with Mirsoft, it was a game that was way ahead of its time. It's still cool to play today (of course it doesn't hurt to be a fan of old games when playing).
Hi Octane: Game rip
"I was amazed to hear that kind of sound..." (by pazhosch, 21 Aug 2011) [10/10]
...without buying game CD's, and before (well, after, but most people haven't heard yet, and anyway it would be too much CPU load for the game) invention of mp3. The game is quite dynamic and not boring, even though there are only 6 different tracks. I really liked both this game and it's music.
About game soundfonts - the file is: SOUND/BULLFROG.SBK in the game dir, standard version 1 soundfont, so all what is needed is to find and download the game. I did today and even enjoyed playing it in DOSbox for a while. Only pity can't put (I still have) my old AWE32 board to the computer, due to lack of ISA slot in the latter. :(
