Great track, with a "traditional" Last Ninja rythmics..
Definetly an outstanding enterpetation of one of my favorite tunes from the C64 era. Kudos Kudos
The transition in the middle is BRILLIANT, tonka really know's how to get into your head and make you listen up, top notch tune. Wish he'd do a few more such a great talent.
Why is there still only ONE song from Tonka? I sure would love to hear more like this, cause this is, for me, still about perfect.
Lovely, the fade out at the end is sublime
I love this version since over years. It´s the best last ninja version i´ve ever heard. Please rmx some more last ninja tunes. You´re really great!!!!
What can I say! Probably the best tune on the site!! STUNNING!!!!!
Best energy, best buildup, best drum programming EVER!!! Gigantic!!
A masterwork on a masterpiece. Period.
Awsome remix cool one with proper soul
As it already says: OUTSTANDING!!!
I heard this one for the first time over 6 years ago and am still amazed every time I listen to it today. My favourite Last Ninja remix.
Absolute genius. A true sid remix - wish there were more like it.
Ouch! Wrong chords at 2:20 and 2:26! Otherwise great, but these ruin it.
Even after 10 years this amazing track is still one of the best. It survived the hard selection of remixes and can still be located in my iPod.:)
My favourite cover I've heard on here so far. The part in the middle is so awesome
Absolutely perfect from start to finish apart from the snare build up at 1. 15 which I find a bit over the top. Well done. This is my favourite remix I've heard!!!
This popped up from my RKO playlist on random. Hadn't rated this and couldn't believe it's from 2001 (it's dec 2015 now). Amazing work!
OMG. GREAT!!!!!!!!!!♡
Like it!
Near to the original, like it very much
OOOF, good start! It's so fun and wild, it reflects the original so well!
Shikin haramitsu daikomyo!;)
One of my favorite remixes, if not my favorite remix of the Palace Gardens Loader tune
Really nice remix, with good tunes, good vibrations and good memories.

While I hadn't heard the original, after hearing this remix I wondered how it could be true to the original SID. I went ahead and fired up the SID and well, the remix IS true to the original. It's a fantastic SID altogether. But this remix... this remix is something else, something much more. Actually, to put it straight-in-your-face, this is by far my favorite from remix64. What it is exactly, I can't tell but somehow this song gives me lots of energy, and I can't sit still for a second listening to it. Perhaps it's the beat, the right use of SID samples for the leads; it all blends into something very beautiful.
For me, it just hits the right spot, and it hasn't lost any of its magic since I first heard it (I'm talking months ago). Again, absolutely my favorite remix/remake!
