Froehn (Carnival In Rio Mix)
Fröhn was a really entertaining piece of game software. The whole thing (coding, graphics and music) was done by one man, Frank Wienberg. The SID actually sounds like a Rob Hubbard one, propably because Frank used Hubbard's engine? Anyhow, although there's no english version of the game that I know of, I strongly recommend giving it a try - it's real fun, and the music rocks!

First off, I tried this "Carnival In Rio" style just for fun, but it actually seemed to work, and it turned out pretty good, methinx! I also did an early-90s-happy-hardcore version of it...
  • Love & Kisses to Sunflower!
  • Respect to Frank Wienberg for Fröhn!
  • Greetings to all the nice folks at Remix64 and c64rmx!

REVIEW BY suso (04/11/2003)

This song starts out so well, but then it tries to add to the tune to complete it and that's where it becomes weak. Sorry. I really like the instrument arrangement. I don't like the fade out at the end. A "Rio" type song in my opinion should have some kind of grand finale, instead of fading out like a 80s rock. The original melody should come back one final time or something.

As far as Froehn goes, it's hard to find. :-(

5 The Fröhn shouts: Thanks for this great remix of my song! The good ol' times...
