Clystron (Subtune 6: Hiscore)

Clystron, though very little known, was a game that impressed me by it's incredible graphics (I've never seen such multicolored hi-res gfx on a c64 before) and of course the smashing musics. It has been developed by the XAmple Architectures.


The Highscore tune was special: Tho very short and repetitive,
one couldn't get enough of it - the melody burnt into your head!
On the remix, I had to improvise a lot (because of the short sid). I think it still contains a lot of the original, combined with
stuff I added. It was the closing part of the GoA project.


GoA stands for the Gathering of Arrangers.

Members of GoA:
We have covered 4 subtunes of the game, each with an individual style, plus one megamix containing excerpts of the 4. Look out for them (enter clystron into the search field at the charts page)

Thomas Detert, composer of the excellent Clystron music, and regular visitor at our messageboards (Cheeeers Thomas ) has commented the GoA Clystron project:

They have done a brilliant job. I am impressed how Clystron sounds in the 21st Century. It is a 10 out of 10 piece of work!


The picture below is a screenshot from the game. Incredibly multicolored, isn't it

REVIEW BY beldin (12/02/2003)

The rating of this remix is solely based on what the remix has to offer since hearing the name of the sidtune doesn't ring a bell. The high quality of sounds used in the remix, the modulations in the bass-line, drop of percussions and a piano part in the end, and the overall hypnotic atmosphere (in a good sense), make this an outstanding piece of music.
