This tune drawn inspiration from a number of sources; it originally started off as a Mega Man reference (specifically Mega Man 2), but I soon incorporated ideas from Castelvania and Pokemon to get a frantic (and at times spooky) theme that portrays a sense of anxiety.
I feel this song gives off moods of worry, tension and frustration, all of which are readily apparent in most vertical climbing platformer levels.
And finally, I wanted to make a theme that had potential to endlessly loop (and I'll be exploring this more and more as I continue this blog).
But enough over-analysis! Listen for yourself!
