Story
THE GAME

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.


SUBTUNE 1: LOADER

When loading the game, the first thing that occurs are some
rich chords that sound like they are being played on a slap guitar with a delay machine. While the title screens are faded in, the melody builds up to an action packed technoish tune!

On this tune, I tried to cover 100% regarding ambience, beat, melody and "feel". I didn't extend the 2:17 tune, for it was only meant to prepare the listener for the other subtunes of the GoA project...


THE GOA PROJECT

GoA stands for the Gathering of Arrangers.

Members of GoA:
  • Oj Oscillation
  • DHS of The Soundwavers
  • LMan

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!"


IMPRESSIVE GRAPHICS

The picture below is a direct screenshot from the loading screen - Speak of stunning graphics...! I never figured out how they managed to tweak the VIC to display a picture that seems to be in multicolor and hires mode at the same time.
